We booked this hotel as we were planning to spend a day close to Faro Airport before meeting family off a flight the next day & heading to Lagos together. We had hoped to find a hotel that was cheap & that could allow us to relax in the sun for a day. I can honestly say that this hotel exceeded our expectations. We got a very cheap rate of €51 B&B so were a bit apprehensive about what we would get for this cheap price!! This hotel is a fabulous 3 star hotel. The rooms were clean and modern, equipped with Air Conditioning, a flat screen TV and some lovely sliding doors that opened out so that we could enjoy the fresh air and the lovely views of the mountains.
One of our main reasons for booking this hotel was the Pool. The pool area was lovely and clean with plenty of sun loungers, tables & chairs and was located beside the Hotel bar, so we enjoyed eating some lunch and having a beer beside the pool :)
I would really like to make a point of commending the staff of this hotel. They are a credit to their managers and were so, so nice & helpful. We arrived early in the moring (10am) and the lovely gentleman at reception was so helpful and found a clean room so that we could check in early- which we are eternally grateful to him for! We also met a lovely Portugeuse lady, whom with her very limited English was very helpful and opened the bar early for us so that we could get something to eat!
The Hotel is €8 in a taxi from Faro Airport and about €8.50 to Faro Town. They also have a shuttle bus service that runs twice a day to the airport, Faro Town & the beach. Just beware that the shuttle to the airport does not run on the weekend!
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an affordable place to chillax before or after a flight. I would definitely stay again and would definitely stay here for more than 1 night as it catered to all our needs perfectly!
