“weekend at the Eva”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

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.

Room Tip: sea view/marina definitely recommended

We only stayed here for one night last Saturday.
We arrived on the bus from Albufeira at about 10.30am - the bus station being just a few steps away. The nice man on reception gave us our room there and then which was a real bonus. We were prepared just to leave our luggage and come back later.
The room was very nice and clean with good amenities. The bathroom was maybe a bit small but it was ok for a night. We had not paid for a premium room.
The view from the top floor was excellent and we would have loved the swimmin pool if it hadn't een such bad weather. The bar areas looked so nice on the rooftop terrace.
Breakfast was of very good standard - a splendid choice of food on display and topped up regularly by the attentive staff.

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor above the busy street but as there were double patio doors there was hardly...

We stayed here for a week in october. Rooms are nice and the sea view room have a great view overlooking the marina and the bay. The rooftop pool is great. The buffet breakfast is excellent with lots of choice. We ate in the restaurant on one night and the food was good, more imaginative than some of the nearbuy places. We really like it here and hope to come back, particularly as it is great value.

I stayed at the Hotel Eva for one night in late October. I was very happy with the high standards of the Hotel. I had a room overlooking the Marina. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and large with a balcony and chairs to sit out on if it had been warmer in October.
It was lovely to have breakfast included in the bargain price, and I thought it would just be a croissant and coffee, but there was a massive Buffet, offering everything you could possibly want, including delicious scrambled eggs, which are so often inedible at other Hotels, alongside bacon and other hot options. All the time staff cleared tables imediately and were attentive.
The rooftop swimming pool and surrounding area looked lovely, and I only wish I had been there on a warm day to enjoy it.
I woud definitley reccommend Hotel Eva too anyone who has to stop over in Faro, it is great value and a good location, only a short taxi ride from the airport.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Marina, but be warned, the traffic rumbles over the cobbled street, w...

We had booked for one night, but decided to change to two, as Faro turned out to be more than just an airport. The hotel was situated next to the marina, a very pretty location and central to shops and restaurants. The room was clean and a reasonable size. The bar was friendly and the restaurant was at the top with beautiful views over the harbour. We only had breakfast which was a good selection.
