7.5 Good
Pros: The indoor pool was free to use but a bit exposed as it is just side by side with the swimming pool bar. Actually some times people go through the indoor swimming pool area with food and drinks... The room was ok, we were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and they were sweet and gave us a VIP with bubbly and fresh fruit and chocolates. Thank you
Cons: The swimming pool is beautiful but there are so many trees around it that if not in the summer time, when we do like shades, it becomes a bit humid. And it is not very big. The spa really is just a closed room and you have to call reception for them to open it and the gym is free, ok, small but nice only on the same floor of rooms... a bit weird.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is spacious, nice. In a bit old fashioned style but i liked it. Stuff was helpful, very polite and smiling. It was pleasant to stay here overall. Breakfast was excellent and rooms were spotlessly clean. Location is easy walk away from the beach and there is also shuttle to take you there and back if you like.
Cons: We stayed here at mid-October. Off season there is much less activities to do in and aroudn the hotel. Only one playing area for the kids which was obviously not the priority of the hotel. Not that well maintained, toys old, pieces missing... there is Sony PS for example with only one game. Outdoor pool not heated (we didn't expect it to be, but just to present the options for the kids). Beach is close (10 min walk) but hotel is not at the beach.

Pros: Extensive resort with all facilities that one needs. Range of accomodation that suits families as well as couples. Sport & service facilities are excellent.

5.7 Okay
Pros: Staff were really great, location was good, beds were reasonably comfortable although it was two singles and as we'd just got engaged we wanted a double.
Cons: Wifi didn't work, beds were crammed in- and there were three, when we only needed the one double- room service selection was really poor, facilities were ok but the pool was absolutely freezing, shower leaked everywhere and the bathroom grouting had mould growing on it, room temperature control didn't work so on a hot day was pouring out hot air into the room...to say it was a four star hotel it has two star qualities. Be glad the staff are fantastic because the rest of it was really poor. Would definitely never go back.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a wonderful stay at The Eva Senses Hotel. We could not fault anything with the hotel and staff. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Wonderful selection for breakfast.

7.0 Good
Pros: The location is good as it's right on the marina, breakfast was excellent and the staff in the morning were very friendly but left you alone to find things out for yourself. The room was very clean and comfortable. day time reception staff again were friendly and helpful.
Cons: The staff on reception when we first arrived were not very friendly and didn't seem bothered about our questions. she told us about two local attractions one of which was an underground supermarket (I didn't go to Portugal to watch people shop!!) and the old town. they were renovating the reception which we knew about before we arrived so expected some disruption. it was supposed to finish each night at 7pm but when I phoned at 20:20 to ask when the drilling was going to stop I got fobbed off with no return call which they said they were going to do. we were only there for 3 nights, 2 of which were spoilt by late night building work.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely breakfast. Local to the centre. Nice outlook across the harbour and waterway. Very helpful staff. Work ongoing to improve the reception was being well managed and will help maintain the quality of the premises. Car parking is limited to the hotel but paid parking very close.

Cons: Although the room was comfortable there were not enough surfaces nor storage places for a stay longer than a day. It was suitable for a very short stay with little luggage. Perhaps for someone who travels as light as Clint Eastwood in his spaghetti western phase. Breakfast could have been improved with a bit of imagination, better presentation & variety of ingredients,.

Pros: Catarina was the perfect host. This family home is quirky, charming and has a history. Beautifully furnished. Great breakfast. Very cosy and welcoming place to stay.
Cons: A lick of paint in the courtyard and around the balconies would not go amiss.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location of the guest house was perfect by the central cross-roads in Estoi: only a short walk down the road to the Roman villa (very good site with very helpful, knowledgeable staff); an even shorter walk over the road and past the church to the grounds, gardens and gilded state rooms of the 'pousada' and a yet shorter walk to the bus stop in the opposite direction for the bus to the central bus station in Faro. This journey takes 25 minutes and the bus station is close to the harbour for birdwatching boat trips (excellent if your interests lie that way). Faro Old Town is adjacent to the harbour. There are several buses a day. The guest house is a converted, large, old Portuguese family home with much original furniture. This is all very well kept and maintained. It's a unique experience to step back in time and place. There is a small pool in the courtyard garden with very good quality wooden sun-loungers – great for a little relaxation. The owner of the guest house is exceptionally informative and helpful with good suggestions for restaurants, getting about and things to see.

Cons: Our room was over the (very good) restaurant, which of course has outside tables. This was not a problem in February as very few were occupied at night, but it would be noisy in summer as although the windows are double glazed, they are far from soundproof (I think it is because of the plastic panel at the bottom)

Pros: Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The room was great, very spacious and the bathroom was excellent. The beds were comfy and the cleaning staff were brilliant. Breakfast was adequate, not as hot as it could be but was nice. We ate in the hotel on 3 evenings and the meals were very good. We would definitely stay here again.
Cons: The lift from the ground floor was not working properly and this was for the duration of our stay which was 4 nights. Sometimes it worked and sometimes we had to walk up the stairs. It wasn't a problem for us but could be for someone who wasn't good with stairs. In fairness someone did come out to mend it on our 3rd day but didn't have the right part part with him so he was having to come back.

In places the decoration needed some attention especially in the bathroom. The large window to the bathroom ( with blind) meant the entire bedroom was lit up when the bathroom was in use during the night.

7.5 Good
Pros: The indoor pool was free to use but a bit exposed as it is just side by side with the swimming pool bar. Actually some times people go through the indoor swimming pool area with food and drinks... The room was ok, we were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and they were sweet and gave us a VIP with bubbly and fresh fruit and chocolates. Thank you
Cons: The swimming pool is beautiful but there are so many trees around it that if not in the summer time, when we do like shades, it becomes a bit humid. And it is not very big. The spa really is just a closed room and you have to call reception for them to open it and the gym is free, ok, small but nice only on the same floor of rooms... a bit weird.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is spacious, nice. In a bit old fashioned style but i liked it. Stuff was helpful, very polite and smiling. It was pleasant to stay here overall. Breakfast was excellent and rooms were spotlessly clean. Location is easy walk away from the beach and there is also shuttle to take you there and back if you like.
Cons: We stayed here at mid-October. Off season there is much less activities to do in and aroudn the hotel. Only one playing area for the kids which was obviously not the priority of the hotel. Not that well maintained, toys old, pieces missing... there is Sony PS for example with only one game. Outdoor pool not heated (we didn't expect it to be, but just to present the options for the kids). Beach is close (10 min walk) but hotel is not at the beach.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nothing was too much trouble for all the staff we met. This our second visit, 10 years apart, and was just as good as we remembered.

Pros: Clean room with a lovely view and comfy bed
