    I am so happy i chose Eva Senses as my 'home' for 3 nights to explore Faro. The hotel is beautiful, modern and clean. Has everything you could want included, bar, pool, restaurant and really friendly and helpful staff. i think this is by far the best hotel in Faro to stay in and i feel the price is great value for what you get. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

    Very good

    Stayed overnight to catch a flight to Faro the next morning. Checking in was smooth, room was comfortable, breakfast the next morning had a lot of selection. Room service was just ok. Didn’t have time to use many of the other facilities. Only down side was my AC/heating did not change the temperature of the room and I was cold while sleeping. I should of called reception but it was already too late at night. Had I stayed another night I’m sure they would of addressed the issue. I would recommend it and stay again.

    Good hotel, great location.

    Good experience overall. Hotel is a great location, and we would definitely stay again. The room facilities are more of a 3 star experience in my opinion, although the marina view from the balcony was fantastic.

    Fantastic staff especially at reception

    Lovely city hotel situated in the centre of Faro next to a small marina. The reception staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. We had a couple of problems with tests etc and they were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and we paid extra to have a view over the marina which was worth it. Beds were really comfortable and very clean. Some extra shelves or hooks would have been good to put our stuff in the bathroom but this was a minor concern. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of choices and Covid restrictions in place which was good. The only thing which wasn’t good was the pool area. So many of the sun beds were broken and the rest needed a good clean. The pool itself was lovely but all the surrounding area needs updating and a good clean. Staff there were lovely tho. All in all a lovely place to stay for a short break.
