My fiancee and I were meeting up for a weekend away (I work away in Russia) and with the logistics and availability of flights we settled on Faro. I had read some of the reviews from here before booking the hotel Eva and I was not disapointed.
I was able to see the hotel overlooking the marina on the flight into Faro airport and with the proximity was a tad concerned regarding air traffic noise however whilst the flights could be heard, there was no disturbances for the hours that we slept and during the day it was not a major disruption so onto the hotel itself.
First impressions can only be made once and the lobby of the hotel was beautiful clean bright and modern, first impressions were a success. I had booked a sea view room deliberately and on check in was advised wed been upgraded to a suite, initial concerns dismissed as it was still a sea/marina view. the suite was clean and spacious, all that was needed for our trip. We did not dine in the restaurant, however the area was again modern clean and bright having enjoyed the breakfast up at the top of the hotel with a great view. Also another point about the hotel was that the bar area was clean and smart, view asthetically pleasing and a very relaxed atmosphere for a last drink of the evening. The location was fabulous as right by the old town/restaurant/shops and (as theres not a lot to see in Faro) right by the railway station for essential days out up the coast.
As a final point, the staff were very helpful and courteous, on checking in we were given a local map with points of interest, on the final night my fiancee succumbed to a migraine whilst out and they were very helpful in providing medication- even asking when we checked out how the migraine was. Faro for us will be a one short visit due to the limitations of the area (as lovely as parts where) however we could not fault the hotel in any way and would receommend highly to anyone visiting the region.
