      Everything, rooms and location are great! We really loved the balcony, it was lovely. Hotel is not far from the train station, it takes 7 mins to walk there. Would recommend for everyone.

      Great location and spacious room. Lovely view and close to the airport

      Lack of staff in the bar area and restaurant at times. Stood at the bar one night and walked away we waited so long. I wasn’t aware until I did get a drink that I couldn’t charge it to my room. It was embarrassing. Why wasn’t I made aware of this when I checked in?

      Lovely big pool. Beautiful views from room. Comfortable bed. Staff friendly. Best location.

      Breakfast very average. Room not 100% clean (dust). Noisy in the morning. Pool area too cluttered. Pool area not kept tidy.

      A great breakfast including sparkling wine and strawberries, a large selection of cheeses and cold cuts. Very good size rooms, clean and recently decorated. Polite and helpful reception staff.

      The week we were staying (in a city view room at second floor) the hotel was under refurbishment (the third floor and the roof swimming pool). We haven't been informed about this aspect and found the room far too noisy during the day as there was lots of heavy drilling and knocking. We traveled with a two year old daughter and trying to put her down for naps every day was a bit challenging. Overall we have had a very pleasant stay at the hotel until the day we checked out. We had to leave in a bit of a hurry and I have left behind, in the room, on the hanger in the wardrobe a very precious cashmere wool over sized scarf, a present from my late departed father. I have phoned the reception just 20 minutes after leaving the premises,I have spoken with their receptionist Louis who re-assured me that they will send somebody up in the room to look for my lost item and get it posted to me in the UK. The next day I have phoned again the reception to discuss postage payment but to my surprise I have been informed that nothing has been found in the room by the housekeeping team. Now, I know for sure where I have left the scarf, I also left few baby unused nappies and few sachets of porridge (intentionally as not needed). The Eva hotel housekeeping team reported that they haven't found anything in the room. This incident only makes me suspicious on the integrity of the housekeeping staff. Just be aware that personal things are getting lost or missing. I have no word of describing this but theft.

      Excellent hotel and the staff are all very friendly and helpful, breakfast food range and quality is great. Very good location, overlooks marina and old town is metres away. Train station is only 300 mtr away and the bus station is outside the hotel.

      None.

      Very good

      Room, which was a decent size, had a view of the marina.

      On checking in, reception staff gave us keys for room, but did not give us one bit of info, regarding meal times, hotel facilities etc, not even a smile. Have never been in a "4*" Hotel where there has been a restaurant buffet with such a small choice and variety of food. Never any hot plates and the food from buffet was never warm enough. Even when we were first in the door at 7pm. Would definitely NOT Stay here again, and would not recommend it to any of my friends.

      The staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great with the amazing views

      The spa was fully booked and the swimming pool was not yet open. Some of the decor was a little shabby in places (e.g. balcony).

      The hotel itself was stylish, clean and very well located. The rooftop pool was beautiful and very relaxing. There are balconies throughout the hotel where you can sit back and relax which I really enjoyed. My room was a superior room with seaviews which were really beautiful overlooking the marina and old parts of Faro which were lovely to wake up and go to sleep watching!!

      Although I enjoyed my stay overall in Hotel Eva there are a few things which I was unhappy with. When we arrived the receptionist was very rude and unhelpful. She left me standing in front of her while she flipped through pages in a file without even looking up, after another 10 mins trying to book us in she told us the room was not ready (this was not a problem as we arrived 2 hours before check in). When we came back we had to go through the whole process again and she never explained where the lifts/ restaurant/ pool were. I phoned later in the day asking about dinner reservations I was told "just go up". When we did go for dinner the view was beautiful over looking the lights and marina but the Vegetarian foood was disgusting. It was bland pasta with very few pine nuts and some stingy spinach and a vile cream sauce. When the waiter came to clear the plates he never asked what was wrong even though I left most of it. My boyfriend had a steak which he said was average. The restuarant did not provide value for money. Hotel Eva really needs to touch up on its staff training on how to welcome and take care of its guests!!

      This is a very comfortable and clean hotel and very good value. The buffet breakfast was included in the price and it had a wide choice of hot and cold dishes and it was very good. The view of the marina from our bedroom balcony was fantastic. The hotel is centrally located in the older part of Faro and there are lots of good restaurants nearby. It is just a 5 minutes walk away from the train station and the taxi ride from the airport was only 11 euros. We really liked Faro = it is a very pretty, small and relaxed city. We would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the Algarve and wanting to drive to the different beaches as they are not too far away if you have a car.
