Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have stayed here previously and, once again, we’re not disappointed. The rooms are a good size with a small kitchen area and dining table. Our balcony overlooked the pool and surrounding countryside. The pool is a good size for swimming. The breakfast are freshly prepared and delicious. Tiago made us feel exceptionally welcome and went out of his way to help. All the staff were very friendly.

A beautiful hotel with large bedrooms with incredible views. The walks from the hotel are brilliant and lead to Portugal's incredible beaches where the beach bars serve fresh fish everyday. Breakfast and dinner was lovely, and even got an afternoon reading my book next to the outdoor pool enjoying the spring sunshine. Staff are great and nothing it too much trouble. Its a great spot to spend with family and friends as some can surf, some can bike, walk, play tennis or do nothing! A true gem in amongst a stunning location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay pf 4 nights in this beautiful house which is full of character and colour. The location is peaceful, just on the edge of Carrapateira and there are plenty of walking options nearby, both rural and coastal. The whole area is very unspoilt and quiet ( we were there in March which is not the main season). The hotel has lots of great assets including a swimming pool, sauna, table tennis, tennis court, a lovely garden and lots of outside seating. Inside there is masses of space to relax with comfy sofas and even a wood burning stove for the cooler months. It's just a great place to relax completely. The breakfasts were generous, varied and delicious - lots of fresh fruit, cheese, ham, croissants etc, etc plus superb home squeezed orange juice. Our hosts were the icing on the cake - so warm and friendly and chatty. We send a very special thanks to Thiago who supplied us with endless information on the local area and also for our onward trip to Lisbon. I wish I was back there right now.

Casa Fajara is a womderful haven of peace and tranquility off the beaten track in the Western Algarve. We had a dreany time, weather was not perfect but good enough and due to the disaster that is Covid, we had the place and pool to ourselves! Special thanks to Nilsa and Thiago for looking after us so well, including providing the most amazing breakfasts. And to the ever friendly Lara who was forgiven for misplacing our booking - having inadvertently pushed it back to 2022! Thankfully the hotel was devoid of guests when we arrived, so finding a room was not an issue! Don't expect 5 star boutique hotel perfection - but do expect a genuinely wonderful home from home and staff willing to please. This hotel operates on mutual trust and respect- and is all the better for that

We spent two nights at the Casa Fajara. It is at the end of a dirt road off the main road in Carrapateira. The town is a walkable distance, but a bit far to do in the dark after dinner (we were there in winter). It was off season so there was no one else at the Casa when we arrived. No matter, we were warmly welcomed and settled into our nice, if a bit quirky, room. A bit later a couple through hikers arrived so we had some company. We loved the Casa Fajara. The grounds are wonderful, our reception was warm, the room had a great view (we chose one with a sitting room so we had a bit of space) and breakfast was quite good.

We arrived at the Casa Fahara tired and dusty after a five hour walk and found a beautiful oasis. The staff were cheerful and welcoming, the garden full of flowers and our room was large and comfortable with a lovely view of the pool. They even provided fresh herbs for the bath to ease our aching limbs. In early March the evenings were cool but under floor heating and log burning stoves kept the hotel cosy. I cant wait for a return visit.

Delightful location and well placed for the Atlantic coast beaches and walking trails. Lovely public areas and bedroom, superb food and incredibly helpful and friendly staff, not least securing a dentist appointment when I broke a tooth.

Very nice helpful staff,especially the Indian guys,great location,comfortable well equipped room,but the food was well below what would expect?deserve--there were 10 guests served a mean breakfast a pastry basket with the smallest croissants possible and only 3 ,muesli jar 1/4 full and a cereal sized bowl of scrambled eggs,for 10 people,dinner was expensive,and lacking in quality and choice,given that this hotel attracts walkers doing 10-15 Kms a day---where was the hot box with eggs/bacon/mushrooms ?,its nothing special, but a surprising penny pinching attitude by owners (presumably)
