Nice hotel.

Posted 27-May-2016
Pros: Location. Clean and sufficient. Lovely and clean dining room. Staff efficient.
Cons: Only booked for breakfast and glad too as the hot food was always cold no matter what time we went down. Do they plug terrines in?
Location: Location of hotel good. Caught train to Aberfura. We came for 5 days. Highlight of the week was local market that we went round in 10 mins.
Not very impressed by the lack of enthusiasm of the staff. Only a few leaflets on desk for residents to seek fun day/experiences to do. Faro very quiet - not alot going on. Maybe local hoteliers should get together to provide some form of entertainment.

Très belle situation

Posted 15-May-2016
Hôtel tres bien situé au centre de Faro, sur la marina et proche de la vieille ville et de toutes les commodités. Il est par contre indiqué qu il y a un parking gratuit... Qui se limite en fait a 10 places sur la rue. Aucune n a jamais été disponible et nous nous sommes garés sur les places payantes devant l hôtel. Les chambres sont propres et bien tenues mais l hôtel ne vaut pas ses 4 étoiles. Le personnel est sympathique et accueillant.

Excellent hotel adjacent to harbour

Posted 24-Apr-2016
Pros: Staff polite and helpful. Good value for money.
Cons: Wi-fi slow. Only 1 power socket available in the bedroom (+ one more if you unplug the standard lamp) makes recharging phone/camera/tablet difficult.
Excellent, modern hotel adjacent to harbour. Bedrooms a reasonable size. Roof-top swimming pool. Gymnasium. Bus station and rail station close-by

Good location and comfortable rooms

Posted 23-Apr-2016
Pros: Locality and views, food
Cons: Reception staff need a little more training in welcome skills - would recommend they visit the donafilipa hotel to see how it should be done!
Location: Downtown Faro is lovely, lots of interesting shops, places to eat and architecture to see, plus the wonderful Ria Formosa to explore.
Chosen for views over harbour and Ria Formosa, nice hotel and very impressed with restaurant - reasonable prices and excellent local wine selection. Good buffet breakfast on offer. Rooms comfortable and hotel only marked down due to attitude of some reception staff, but they are young and may still be under training so will set that niggle aside and would definitely stay again.

Superb hotel experience

Posted 22-Apr-2016
Pros: Great location, friendly and knowledgeable staff, scrupulously clean, many facilities.
Cons: This hotel was faultless during our stay, it's difficult to suggest any improvement.
Location: Ideally located, next to the marina with shops and restaurants nearby. The old town is a five minute walk away. Bus & train stations are minutes away.
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.

Many false promises

Posted 19-Apr-2016
Bathroom was old and needs renos. Shower floor sticky when using it. The hotel says they have parking but they do not. There is street parking around the hotel area. This is not parking that we were told. We paid extra for a ocean view and were on the second floor of the hotel and only saw the marina. No ocean. It is not the hotel's fault but people were screaming outside of the hotel until 5 am. Not a good sleep. Dark hallways and very old room. Good location. Beautiful lobby Good breakfast. Overall would not stay here again. I would not give this location a 4 star review. We were expecting much better.

Central Faro four star hotel

Posted 17-Apr-2016
Pros: Location, breakfast
Cons: Not much. Checkout was a bit slow but staff called for another person to help. A late checkout (2pm) was accomodated which was good.
Location: Right on the marina in the centre of Faro so perfect location. Only a short 15 min journey to/from Faro airport.
We booked the hotel as it came up i an online offer. We were not dissapointed. The location was excellent, in the centre of Faro. We liked the breakfast buffet and as it has the dining room on the 5th floor it has wonderful views over the marina and the estuary. Would stay there again.

Hotel in het centrum.

Posted 10-Apr-2016
Pros: De ligging.
Cons: Het ontbijt.
Location: De oude stad heb je in een middag wel gezien, de rest is erg vervallen en vies. De geringe afstand naar het vliegveld is wel een pluspunt.
Net hotel, schone kamers en goede bedden, het ontbijt is echter een aanfluiting en het zwembad heeft duidelijk betere tijden gekend. Voor de prijs had ik meer verwacht.
