“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

My experience of Hotel Monaco is one of excellence! From the location, to the staff and the room, it is definately worth a stay.
The lovely Francesco at reception was so so helpful, anything you ask for he will try his best to get it for you. The room was really nice, and very clean, it was a pleasure to stay there. My only disappointment was that i couldnt use the pool and the sunloungers were all tied up out of the way, but it was probably the time of year, as the Portugese were all still very cold, but I was hot, and wanted to lie in the sun. But it wasnt a great problem, I just got the bus to the beach, and what a beach it was....Faro beach.....STUNNING!!! I made the mistake of trying to get on the working mans bus!!!! Instead of the bus to Praiya Faro, they all just laughed but i felt so embarassed. So its the number 16 bus you want!!
Breakfast was great at the hotel, just what you need, nothing too heavy.
They did snacks in the evening too, I only ate there once, and it was a simple meal, but nice.
Lovely quiet location, lovely residential area, with some lovely walks round the local shops, lots of little hills for excercise.
Location of the hotel was fantastic, five minutes in the taxi from the airport, you can even walk it!!
You can easily get a bus from the airport too, to Montenegro where the hotel is.
I only paid £66 for 3 nights, which is an absolute bargain for such a lovely place.
Nothing but good things to say about this hotel and the area, I went on my own too.

Room Tip: I had the room at the front of the hotel, which was lovely, i have no idea what the other rooms were...

Excellent hotel at a very reasonable price close to the Faro Airport. Very kindly people at the reception, at the evening bar (good hamburger with french fries) and at brakfast. Highly recommended to eveyone. Thank you very much.

Only 34 Euros a night in December - I couldn't believe it! Only 7.50 Euros from the airport so a good stop over if you fly in late. I was visiting my aunt in Faro hospital so it was very convenient.
Room was average and not a lot going on nearby as fairly residential but peaceful. Downside was that there wasn't much to eat in the bar/restaurant - a very limited menu but probably just as it was so off season. Breakfast was average too.
Staff were friendly and helpful.

Although the restaurant was closed and the bar intermittently open (depended on where the staff were working), this was really a good value hotel. The check in was very slow and there didn't seem to be a proper method to handle groups of people but the staff were helpful. The shuttle bus to the airport (5 mins) was free and the driver even took us to town and collected us later for free too - very helpful. Rooms were basic but clean, quiet and the free wifi had a good connection. The staff were friendly and allowed us to check out at 3pm at no extra charge.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front had a small balcony and the road was quiet so these are worth asking for.

We had one night only in Faro and wanted a hotel convenient for airport. This fitted the bill, lovely room and very pleasant helpful staff. Very good value for money indeed. Breakfast could have been better but we had enough. Would stop again.

I enjoyed my stay in the hotel. The room was very clean, although it could be better designed. The staff is very professional and helpfull. The location is ok but not perfect as it is quite far from the City Centre as well as the beach. Breakfast was the highlight- delicious:)

Well where to start with this hotel!! My dad took sick while he and my mum were on holiday 100 miles away in south Portugal on the last day of the holiday. My mum was left with no money as my dad was rushed to Faro for surgery.

I found this hotel close to the hospital and called the receptionst Ana so very helpful I explained what was happening and got my mum a room. There was never any question of money and everything we asked for was done really efficiently. When my mum arrived she had no problem booking in and they even offered her a taxi so she could visit my dad at the hospital!

I arrived the next day and found the hotel really clean and tidy.

The food was ok but cheap enough.

Overall a fantastic hotel with fantastic staff who catered to our every wish and who I cannot thank enough for what they did for my parents.

Maybe under different circumstance I would stay here again!!

With many thanks again
