    beautiful not not quiet

    Great staff. Lovely location. Beautiful room. Regretfully, you will hear every sound — other guests were loud, there was techno playing at the hotel pool (on 5th floor) that was heard all the way in my room (1st floor), and the street noise (bars/restaurants/drunk people) through the night. Amazing in so many ways — and not restful at all. Perhaps it was just my location in the building. I really want to like this place... it was beautiful. Just... not quiet at all.

    Good hotel, great location.

    Good experience overall. Hotel is a great location, and we would definitely stay again. The room facilities are more of a 3 star experience in my opinion, although the marina view from the balcony was fantastic.

    Fantastic staff especially at reception

    Lovely city hotel situated in the centre of Faro next to a small marina. The reception staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. We had a couple of problems with tests etc and they were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and we paid extra to have a view over the marina which was worth it. Beds were really comfortable and very clean. Some extra shelves or hooks would have been good to put our stuff in the bathroom but this was a minor concern. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of choices and Covid restrictions in place which was good. The only thing which wasn’t good was the pool area. So many of the sun beds were broken and the rest needed a good clean. The pool itself was lovely but all the surrounding area needs updating and a good clean. Staff there were lovely tho. All in all a lovely place to stay for a short break.

    Some of the staff very nice and helpful. But staff at checkin very rude, i requested one double bed but they can only offer 2 twin beds, that staff simply said i can leave the hotel if i don’t want twin beds which is super rude! But the checkout staff and towel rental staff very helpful

    Great place for a comfortable stay

    The hotel is in a great location and with the Harbour views you can spend time relaxing and watching the world go by. The room we had was a little dated, the mirrored wardrobe doors didn't open as had come off of the runners and the furniture is in need of updating. The room we had was either an ex smoking or there was smoke coming in from another area as everytime we came back to the room it smelt like smoke. The breakfast was great, they cater for everyone and the food is delicious! Pool are is nice, the bar drinks are a bit hit and miss but it's a nice place to hang out. The bar on the 5th floor is great though when it's busy you will wait 45+ minutes to have your drinks delivered to your table. Overall it was a great stay and the team were polite and helpful.
