Stayed here for 3 nights for a winter break and a what a cool place..! The guys that run this little B & B are just great, what lovely friendly people. Our room was an en suite, which was small but ideal for us... And WOW, the breakfast is just amazing, especially sitting on the roof terrace in the sun. Excellent value for money in such a great location. Perfect, we will return one day, for sure. Highly recommended.

Decided to come here for a midweek winter break following reading the good reviews on Booking.com & Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed!! Right from the onset of the booking, the communication was fantastic! We asked in advance if we could leave our luggage at the b&b on arrival to Faro, as we would be arriving on a fairly early morning flight. Upon arrival, we discovered one of our rooms was already ready, so we were able to offload our luggage here. The rooms were all named after women, and our rooms were Eva & Amelie. Both our rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean! In fact the entire b&b was spotless and so much attention to detail. What made it even more easier was there was a lift between the 3 floored property. Our room was cleaned everyday with replenished towels, and bins emptied etc. We enjoyed the breakfast on the roof terrace. And the hosts Louis & Mario were only too happy to please and we were made to feel so at home! The b&b is a flat easy walk to the old town and perfect links with rail,boat and bus to other regions of the Algarve and the likes of Lisbon are a 3 HR train ride away. Plenty of restaurants & bars nearby, all of which offer good range of cuisine and good prices! We loved it so much, we hope to return again soon!

We loved staying at Sunlight House. The staff are warm welcoming and had many recommendations on what to do / where to go in Faro and Algarve. The room had all the essentials, the TV is in the communal area but we didnt mind not having one in our room as the wifi connection was very good to stream Netflix on our phones. The special touch was cooked breakfast on the balcony each morning. We started each day with a fully belly. Thank you for your kindness!
