The staff really need to improve in english as comunication sometimes was not easy. The frontdesk was not as welcoming as I expected it to be. Unfortunately the staff sometimes seemed like they were forced to sit at the desk. I think it's a pity as the hotel itself is not bad for the price.

This was a fairly good hotel for the amount we paid. Overall stay was great. The Location of the hotel couldnt be better, its just a block from the main central shopping area and the marina etc. Definitely a recommended spot if you are looking for a reasonable price hotel. Rooms have balconies as well, which was cool. We would stay here again if we were to go back to Faro. Breakfast in the hotel was good as well, no complaints at all!

The bed was creaking ! We changed of room, but it was the same ! The wood structure of the bed is too old ! They must change all of their beds ! The breakfast was quite correct except the orange juice.

Our second visit to Santa Maria and I'm pleased to say that the hotel is still as good as ever. Our only regret was that we could only stay for 2 nights and Faro really deserves a little longer. Not to worry, it gives us an excuse to go back again :-)

This is the third time I have stayed at the Hotel Santa Maria in Faro. I always choose to stay at this hotel as it offers affordable quality accommodation and the staff are always welcoming and friendly as well. The hotel also has a great patisserie which sells the best (and cheapest) coffee and cakes in town.

This hotel was central and just right for me. I was disappointed that I could not return for a second night at short-notice; the room tariff had doubled on account of a bikers convention!

The Santa Maria is a spacious and modern hotel with a very central location in Faro. It offers excellent value for money and I would certainly stay there again.

Excellent value at the discounted rate we paid (40E per night for a double room in early January). Pleasant atmosphere, helpful staff, good breakfast. Good location. The coffee shop in the hotel foyer seemed to offer the best value deal in town - two coffees and a (shared) pastry for 2E!

A lovely hotel with a rustic feel close to Praia Dona Ana and about 10 minutes walk from the town centre.

We had booked online and requested a double bedded room with smoking preferece although when we arrived to the hotel, we were allocated a smoking pref twin room. Ana at reception was very apologetic & accomodating and we moved to a double - she was very nice & helpful. Also, our shower leaked and we had to move to another room for our second night and no apology was offered. All in all, we were very happy with the location and facilities although room service would have been nice. Thank you.

The Hotel is ideal for people who want to be in the center of FARO: the main shopping street with the best shops is virtually just round the corner. All the good restaurants are close by. Unfortunately, as so many others, the Hotel is not at all equipped to accommodate wet beach towels and swim gear. You need to pimp the bathroom with removable hooks and hangers as there is very little space to hang up your things. Faro is a nice base for excursions to various exciting beaches! (e.g. Desert island)

A VERY clean hotel with a wonderful location. The staff was friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that my "double" room was actually two twin beds with HARD mattresses. I don't know if all beds in the hotel are as firm. The bathroom and breakfast were adequate.

This was my first visit to Faro. Hotel is centrally located beside the main shopping area of the town and within a 10 minutes walk of the bus and train stations. I spent 2 nights in this hotel - typical 3 star premises with helpfull staff. Breakfast adequate, but limited choice of foods.
