Had a one-night stay. Clean, comfortable, and large balcony. Wifi on the 5th floor was weak, but the breakfast was delicious, easily the highlight of the hotel. It is located centrally and directions from Google maps were direct and correct.

We stayed 2 nights with our small children. Location is perfect as the tourist spots are right next to the hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was kind and helpful. I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

I spent one night at the hotel and I liked the room, though it was tiny. Breakfast was nice and the location is great. Very close to the sites and the shopping area. The service at the hotel was very nice, kind and helpful.

We come in hotel for only one night between flights. it was clean and nice room for small rate. Breakfast was excellent, better than in some brand hotel. Hotel is in city centre, great location, reception woman was kind and helpful. The choice of accommodation in Faro is not so good, so this hotel was great deal for money.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The room was fine (simple, but big enough and clean). A good choice of tasty food was offered at the breakfasts. The staff was helpful with all needed information about the city and transport. The location is very close to the old town. Restaurants and shops are just around the corner. The...

I booked the hotel based on the good reviews. I do think the hotel was good value as I got quite a good deal, however I was disappointed with the wifi signal in my room. The T.V only had one station in English and that is the news. It was impossible to watch videos on my ipad because the wifi...

The Santa Maria is a modern hotel with a fresh, clean interior & lift to all floors. Rooms have white walls & red flooring & are attractive & comfortable. The room safe was useful for safely storing passports & cash. The en suite was clean & had hair dryer & the usual toiletries. Its shower cubicle was a little small,...

We stayed at the Hotel Santa Maria based on two reasons, reviews on the internet and the price. We have found it a great location to stay in Faro, the staff have been very helpful, room and public areas immaculate, breakfast more than adequate. We have a 5.30 start one morning but the night porter produced coffee and rolls to...
