My top 5 hotels in Faro
It wasn’t an easy task to choose only 5 hotels from the diversified lodging options Faro has to offer. Neverthless, based on my experience, I did my best and I am convinced that I bring you magnificent choices that will contribute for a wonderful stay at the Algarve’s capital.
Of course, I am aware that many more could rank this list, so all I can do is hope that you like the hotels listed bellow as much as I do.
Pousada de Faro, Estoi Palace
Pousada de Faro is set in the magnificent Estoi Palace from the 19th century that belonged to the Viscount of Estoi, José Francisco da Silva. Inaugurated with a huge party on May 2nd 1909, the palace stayed in the Viscount’s family long after his death until 1987 when it was bought by Faro Municipal Council. For many what makes this Pousada unique is the elegant balance between the charm form the past and the design of the present it offers; yet, for me it was that hour I spent on the balcony of my room, reading a book while enjoying the tranquility of the Versailles-style gardens in front of me that make this place memorable.

Hotel de Faro
However, this hotel ranks my list of best Faro hotels mainly due to the amazing views from the Ria Formosa lagoon and the historic centre one gets from its restaurant which provides the best ending for a perfect day at the beach.

Hotel Santa Maria Faro
Hotel Santa Maria Faro is a 3 star hotel offering good value for the money not just due to the services offered but also due to the perfect location for those willing to explore the historic centre of the city. I was also conquered by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.

Hotel Sol Algarve
If you are looking for an overnight stop close to public transportations and the historic centre and are on a strict budget, then Hotel Sol Algarve is the place for you. Even though you won’t find here luxury, rooms are comfortable and clean.
The staff is very helpful and you will love the lovely courtyard in the middle of the hotel with plants and a fish pond that kids adore. Besides, the hotel conquered a certificate of Excellence 2011 from Trip Adviser.

Hotel Eva offers an excellent service and magnificent rooms. However, what takes me back each year to this 4 star hotel is the breathtaking view over the marina that is even more beautiful at starry night.
