Superb hotel experience
Our entire four day stay was an absolute pleasure from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. The staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful and nothing was any trouble to them. We arrived before midday and although our room wasn't ready (check in is 2pm), the receptionist quickly found one that was ready and made the switch so that we could check in immediately The room was very well equipped and our room had a balcony overlooking the marina. The room also had a small fridge which was handy for keeping drinks cold. The top floor restaurant, which has beautiful views through panoramic windows, served an extensive buffet breakfast each morning. The hotel bar was well stocked and reasonably priced, complementary snacks were provided too. The free wifi was fast and consistent in the room, reception and bar areas.
The standard of housekeeping was exemplary with daily bedding and towel changes.
The hotel is centrally located in Faro, with all amenities within walking distance. Transfer from the airport by taxi takes 10 to 15 mins, however the regular service bus takes 20 mins and is a fraction of the price. The bus terminal is next to the hotel. The train station is less than five minutes walk and from there the trains run along the Algarve to Lagos in the west and almost to the Spanish border in the east as well as cross country to Lisbon.
Hotel Eva is a first class hotel in a perfect location to visit Faro or to use as a base for visiting anywhere on the Algarve.
