The hotel is 5 minutes from the bus station. It was quiet, clean, very well located, the view was awesome, the staff were very helpful, the breakfast was terrific and overall, it was a great experience. The hall and bathrooms could stand to be updated.

The hotel is being refurbished hence the low rating. We had a negative experience in the first and second rooms we were allocated. On our final night we were offered another room which was better. The breakfast is amazing as is the view across the marina from the roof top restaurant. Location excellent.

Pros: The behaviour of all staff and lovely set up of the beautiful roof top restaurant.
Cons: Sound insulation for the bedrooms located underneath the roof top kitchen and restaurant.
Location: Nice location and view. Easy access to the local shops and the nearby shopping centre. We had difficulties getting to the beach which was inconvenient
Reception staff very knowledgable, friendly and helpful in many way of clients needs. Rui arranged with the cook and restaurant manager Joao arranged for my vegan diets which I enjoyed it during our stay at Faro's lovely roof top restaurant. The room we were in was not 4 star hotel room specially with early morning kitchen activity noses, but we enjoyed it's sunny and bright location.

The hotel is in the perfect location- very walkable. We stayed one night as we arrived by train from Lisbon and left the next day by bus for Sevilla, Spain. We enjoyed the roof top terrace for watching the sunset over the marina while enjoying a glass of wine. Then the next morning enjoyed the lovely breakfast on the roof top terrace with the gorgeous views.

We are family of 5 and had 3 rooms in this hotel and our stay was good and perfect without any complaints, All the staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable, albeit no coffee/tea making facilities in the room, roomservice available but no menu in the room. some evidence of lack of maintenance/repairs in rooms were present. The public toilets on the rooftop / pool and restaurant area were not regularly checked /cleaned, and looked disguisting. The food in the restaurant is excellent and cooked to perfection, but might not be everyones taste. Service is a bit slow, but excellence of food makes up for this.

Room for improvement

Pros: The staff hospitality, the location and the beach club, the breakfast was excellent and the panoramic view was breath taking.
Cons: Our first night, we found the restaurant a bit pricy.
Location: Great location easy access to beach and motorways. Conveniently located near bars and restaurants in the old town. The old town was great to explore.
Rather disappointing first night experience, toilet flushing system faulty. Our room on the 3rd floor was unbearable through bad insulation. We did not sleep a wink as the noise from the dining area was constant, fortunately we were moved to a better room on the second floor. We would have preferred a double bed instead of twin beds. Staff was exceptionally helpful and pleasant. If you stay there avoid the third floor unless they provide complimentary ear plugs.
