              Good location. Requested a quiet room as early morning flight. Reception staff very good.

              Restaurant on top floor. Waitress wearing heels, sound travelled. We had to move from floor 3 to floor 2.

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              A comfortable hotel and a good nights sleep.

              However the facilities and room standard are certainly not that of a 4 star property !! 3 star yes

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              The room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast was very good and the diningroom staff were very helpful and very friendly

              The noise from the streets late at night

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              We liked the helpful staff and the location near to the harbour was lovely.

            • Couple
              6.6

              Too much noise outside at night had a hard time sleeping...pity as it spoilt what would have been a really nice stay.

            • Couple
              8.8

              I had a wonderful stay with the hotel, staff were very helpful, and breakfast was lovely.

              The shower was only lukewarm on all occassions that it was used.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Excellent service! We were travelling with a baby and they assisted us with everything we asked for (baby cot, water boiler, early breakfast tray etc.). When the air conditioner was broken they sent a handy man to fix it immediately.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Nice central clean hotel , with great staff and an excellent restaurant. Can highly recommend it

              Just needs a swimming pool or a lounged on the top deck

            • Single
              9.6

              The hotel was well appointed, very clean, and great staff. The restaurant was also excellent. Had a melon and proscuito salad that was a highlight of the trip!

              It was a bit noisy at night, as i had the window open and lots of activity and music in downtown Faro that night. I also was on the first floor, so if this is a concern, ask for something higher up.

            • Single
              9.2

              location of hotel was great,walking the town is a breeze people were very friendly

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Good location for the older part of Faro (1 minute away) and the marina area. Reasonable, but not great, restaurants close by. Good buffet breakfast.

              The rooms were very plain and colourless.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Location is great, overlooking the marina near the bus/train station and the taxi rank. Nice breakfast from roof top terrace. Big room. Very close from city center.

              No pool. No free internet access. This is not acceptable for a 4 stars hotel in 2011.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Good location opposite Marina and near bus and train stations. Easily accessible by airport bus. Very close to old town and to pedestrianised area for shops, cafes and restaurants. Excellent rooftop buffet breakfast with large terrace and good views over the marina and the city. Large, clean, comfortable rooms.

              Only downside - it is not a "pretty" bulding: it's part of a modern development and reception is quite stark but ask for marina views which more than make up for this.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              The hotel is in a fantastic location overlooking the marina. It is very close to all the restaurants and bars as well as the ferries for the beach and national park. The hotel rooms are spacious and are very clean. The staff are courteous and very efficient. The rooftop bar has the most fantastic view well worth an afternoon drink or three.
