Though my room was supposed to be a double room, it was still very small, so small that I could not even open my suitcase. I wonder how could it fit 2 person in it. The plus was that it had a balcony overlooking the street. However, it got quite noisy when cars and drunk people passed by. Breakfast was...

Our double room was tiny and barely acceptable, the worst in a tour of nine Algarvian hotels. The morning we left, we could see that, despite the hotel being fairly recently built, the rooms do vary in size. If we'd had 60cm rather than 30 around the bed, we'd have been a lot happier. Our room faced the street but...

Cons: bed very uncomfortable and I woke up backache and with bug bites, shower is tiny and has no temperature control valve so I was scalded and frozen during my shower. Have stayed in a variety of hotels and Airbnb over three weeks in Portugal. This place was disappointing value...

We stayed one night, had a front room facing the street, very small. Staff were helpful in printing our boarding passes but the man in reception was very abrupt. Did not have time for breakfast except a cup of coffee as early flight but would stay again, very clean, would just ask for a better room.

Good value and nice people. They have a breakfast which is convenient - though I wish the coffee were better - way better. Ask for a room facing in towards the courtyard. Slept well there. Location was great.

Basic hotel, our room was small facing onto the street. We noticed there were better rooms with balcony but no availability. Bed uncomfortable. Dodgy air con. Friendly informative staff. Continental breakfast very basic & low quality. You can ask and pay for full breakfast. Nice outside eating area. Great location central Faro & bus & train stations.
