When flying out of London you will be using one of these airports: London Gatwick. You will be landing at Faro, also known as Faro Airport.
There are no hotels at the Faro Airport but the airport is not far from the city centre and you can find accommodation nearby, for example Hotel 3K Faro Aeroporto, Hospedaria Frangaria or Ibis Faro Algarve. None of them offer an airport shuttle service but you can reach them via car in under 5 minutes with Hotel 3K Faro Aeroporto being within a short walking distance.
Faro Airport is located within a short distance from the centre of Faro so you can get there relatively fast with all the available modes of transport. Your best option is to order a taxi which will drive you to the city in only 10 minutes, depending on your final destination in Faro you can pay from 9£ to 22£. If you plan to go on trips outside of Faro to explore more of the Algarve region then rent a car at the airport. There is also a bus which operates from 5am to midnight but not with a lot of frequency so you might end up waiting for more than 30 minutes.
There are four Short Stay car parks and a convenient Meet & Greet option right next to the terminal building. There is also a Mid Stay park for a minimum 3-day stay and Long Stay area if you want to park your vehicle for at least 5 days. People who want to leave their car for more than a week can choose a budget-friendly JetParks area. There are free shuttles to the terminal from all the car parks.
Yes, you can connect to the internet for free at the London Gatwick Airport, but there is a limit of 90 minutes. If you will still need the internet access after reaching the limit you can purchase a longer access by Boingo Hotspot.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Space in plane"
Cons: "Departure on time as had connecting flight"
Pros: "It left on time and the service was reasonable."
Cons: "This probably isn't to do with EasyJet, but the Nice airport was a disorganised mess. It was under-staffed and there was some type of problem where they wouldn't let anyone leave the airport for an extra hour."
Pros: "The crew was the best we've experienced in years of travel."
Cons: "Non-reclining seats were less comfortable than most."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination Prices are acceptable"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late Pilot was rough flinging the plane"
Cons: "Comfort of seats and entertainment"
Cons: "The automatic bag-drop could have been better staffed for the many, many people who had difficulty ."
Pros: "Quick check in and no fuss"
Pros: "The crew on the airport in London were nice by helping me with extra luggage."
Cons: "There could be some more seats in your terminal London Gatwick. Where I was sitting while waiting it was not very pleasant and it was cold."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Ground crew did not do a good job with the boarding process and even with speedy boarding it did not work well."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. Flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane smelled like vomit before take off which leads me to believe it was not cleaned properly"
Cons: "no entertainment no food, no snack, no drink scary landing due to strong, gusty wind in Innsbruck"
Pros: "Nothing about easy jet we made it on time and they said gate was closed so false. Sat at airport for 45min till 6pm prior to flight taking off. Says flight was for 6pm and 5:15 tell us gate is closed great way to rob us from our money."
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Speedy boarding was shambles"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight that didn't allow a carryon bag and some kind of bad to tuck under the seat ahead of you. There was room for my small backpack but because I had a carryon suitcase to go in the overhead bin, they made us check that bag and pay a very hefty fee."
Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "baby behind us would not stop playing with the trays, was very irritating the entire flight. crew did nothing about it and all parent kept doing with apologizing. maybe make available locks for trays to help parents with babies to help control there fussiness or move them to front so no one is in front of them to experience banging on their seats."
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "3 hours late! Horrible on time service."
Pros: "Deplaning on both sides of aircraft"
Cons: "Agent checked carry on size 2 times through the whole process"
Cons: "The delay and the fact I didn't have a seat because of overbook!"
Cons: "It seems to be a particular quirk of British Airports that gates are not announced until shortly before flight departure. I really dislike this because instead of making one's way direct to the gate and relaxing at the gate, one must wait in a crowded "shopping mall" with no view of the aircraft, and then when the gate is announced, make a mad rush to the gate. The rest of the world can give the gate well ahead of time, why can't Britain do the same?"
Pros: "the plane was clean"
Cons: "Is it really necessary to charge for even water?"
Cons: "Landed 3 hours late"
Pros: "Mostly one time and fit my budget"
Cons: "Asking passenger to fit the laptop bag in to the cabin baggage is ridiculous when you know that it will be taken out after boarding"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "No sucked"
Pros: "For a short trip it's fine. Price is right, the staff is cheerful, shuttle buses took us to customs very quickly. The bag drop system is very efficient."
Cons: "You know what you get with this airline: no frills, tight spaces, and you board and deplane outdoors (in a downpour in London)."
Pros: "Cheap fare. Friendly crew. Don't book a budget flight and expect First Class facilities."
Cons: "I'm 6'3", so found the seats a little cramped. Bearable for the 2 hour flight from London to Murcia. I wouldn't want to go much further in those seats. Food and drink onboard is ridiculously overpriced."
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "Said I could add hold baggage on line, but nowhere given an option to do so, so had tp pay twice as much at the airport."
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "We rushed through the duty free shops because the sign said the gate was closing, but boarding had barely even started."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Lack of communication, one massive rude boarding employee who complained a 5-inch side bag was an "extra bag" and would not be allowed unless stuffed into a larger backpack - had strict luggage policies that were immediately contradicted by opening announcement on airplane. Also, received gate number only 10 min prior to boarding"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Disorderly boarding process to the plane, once in the gate."
Cons: "The chairs are not comfortable"

Cons: "The boarding process was a little hectic - the sign for Venice was at gate 28, and they called for people to board, but they were still boarding for Berlin. Then there was a last call for boarding for Venice - but they hadn't even started boarding for Venice yet and it was meant to be a last call for Berlin. And then Venice ended up at a different gate (but only one over)."
Pros: "Easy and convenient"
Cons: "Clarity of front and rear entry instructions."
Pros: "Best part was the ability to get access to loung for a little bit extra... So worth it. Price reasonable. Seats same. Did not try food or entertainment."

Cons: "The flight was delayed and wasn't handled professional"
Pros: "the flight is punctual and you get what you paid for"
Cons: "the airport staff, are not helpful, extremely rude... they are not friendly and completely not supporting families, and should be changed to real easy jet staff. Extremely disappointing attitude from the staff"
Cons: "26A for 1.85m guy. Not even a window. I thought i would die. Legs cramped."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and boarding was smooth but flight was more than an hour late and we missed our connecting international flight."
Cons: "Our Easyjet flight from London to Milan was more than 1 hour late due to which we missed our connecting flight from Milan to New Delhi. We were stranded in Milan for one night and had to fly to Vienna for another night before we found a flight leaving to New Delhi from Frankfurt. We endured extreme inconvenience and should be compensated for the same. We had to find a hotel for one night in Milan and one night in Vienna before we could fly to our final destination. We are very disappointed with Easyjet :("
Pros: "Check in process at London Gatwick was so efficient, quick and Organised."
Cons: "Plane delayed, very cramped cabin space, but only short haul flight"
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible! Waited for over an hour between boarding area and airplane. Waited an hour to get an extra holding bag added to our flight. Customer service were lazy and untrained. The boarding announcement went from boarding to gate open to gate closed! We rushed to the boarding area to find out that we weren't boarding for another hour. TERRIBLE! Avoid Easyjet at all costs!"
Cons: "Delayed for 1h30min"
