We arrived late at the night and were told there were no double rooms on the front side of the hotel (only side with balconies) but were told to return tomorrow and we could change, which we did the next day easily. The staff were also very helpful at locating attraction for us and all had good english.
The room itself is quite dated but cleaned daily, comfortable bed and the aircon is included in the price. However the carpet was quite dirty and stained and there was no way of locking the balcony door that is accessable from adjacent balconies.
The bathroom fairs better being marble, well lit, spacious with fresh towels and a good shower.
The pool is small but was never crowded, however by late afternoon the sun is restricted to only one corner of the outdoor space.
Breakfast is located in the basement which was a little odd but meant it was cool. The continental style breakfast was varied including bread rolls, croissants, scrambled eggs, frankfurters (strange), cereal, yoghurt, fruit etc. However it was more quantity over quality with the fruit juice being squash and as mentioned the frankfurters.
Location wise the main thing we were worried about was the proximity to the airport, however we did not hear a plane once during the entire weeks long stay! there is also a bustop 50 yards away that means you are halfway between the bach and Faro town.
Overall a decent hotel with good staff (pushing the rating up from a 3 to a 4) as long as you have a car/don't mind the bus!
Get one on the balcony side, just ask!
