“Extremely friendly helpful; staff, spotless rooms, good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

We recently stayed at the Aqua Ria Boutique Hotel in Faro. It is a very new hotel and the rooms are very well furnished. Huge comfortable bed and lovely en suite. The staff were very friendsly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is in a perfect position by the marina and a few steps away from both the Old town and the main shopping streets. We did not get a chance to eat at the restaurant but it came highly recommended by anyone outside the hotel we asked and it was extremely busy every evening - even in January! The locals were eating there which is a good sign. The only tiny downside is that our room had no view - but not a big problem. Also the lighting in the room was not good - it was very cosy, but needed a little more lighting.

This is a lovely small boutique hotel opposite the marina in a quiet street. The staff are friendly, the rooms are big, the bed is huge and bathroom is also huge. Breakfast is fine. Didn't eat in the restaurant but it looked good. Good advice from the staff on reception.

Just spent three nights there on a birthday trip for my wife quite easy to find its in a pedestrian only street right next to the Faro hotel but the access is easy the free parking nearby as described is actually not so near 10 minutes walk the other side of the castle but at week ends its all free anyway. the hotel is very modern in style and tastefully laid out, comfy bed, good shower and very friendly, and extremely helpful, staff. we had a standard room which was fine except it was an inside room overlooking an antrim and we found the subtle lighting in the room wasn't quite adequate enough. We came back on my wife's birthday night to find a lovely plate of fruit and chocolate and a bottle of cava in the room what a wonderful gesture! Well recommended!

Room Tip: the inside rooms are a little dark

We have just had 3 fabulous nights at Aqua Ria Boutique Hotel. It has a warm and personal service, all the staff have been so friendly and welcoming.
The bedroom was fabulous, it;s huge and has an enormous bed-we haven't slept so well for ages. The shower room has top of the range Porcelonsa fittings, the shower has a huge overhead head, but also more importantly for me, when I don't want to get my hair wet, a smaller hand held shower. Lots of hot water too. The bedroom has a heater that you control, I can't bear being in a room that is too hot or cold-it could heat the room in a few minutes. The room was cleaned and put back to the condition we saw it on the first day every day. Aqua Ria is right in the heart of Faro-on the edge of the shopping/bar/restaurant centre, you can see the harbour from the hotel entrance and the old city is a few minutes walk. Breakfast was fresh and generously piled with plenty of fresh fruit as well as more continental offering. Would highly recommend Aqua Ria.

A perfect place in Faro.

In november we spent five nights in the Aqua Ria Boutique Hotel wich is recently built.
This very well located hotel close to the historical center has a modern equipment and decoration of good taste,
you will feel very cosy in the room, the atmosphere of wich is warm and the bed is large and really comfortable.
The staff is friendly and of very big kindness. We recommand also the restaurant Costa Algarvia attached at this hotel for its excellent value for pricing.
We appreciate the qualities of this establishment and we shall return to it during our next journey in Faro.
It is important to have places in the world where you can feel almost at home!
