“Easy location for Faro Airport”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Monaco in Faro for 3 nights in April 2012.

The hotel was clean and reasonably priced (60 euros for 2 people with breakfast included). The location is excellent for Faro Airport and has easy links to the major roads east and west.

The hotel location (Montenegro district) is only 5 minutes from Faro airport so is ideal as a stopover if you have a late or early flight. There isn't much in the local area except a few local shops and bars (didn't really see any tourists just local people). You would definately need a car if you are staying here, unless you get a taxi from the airport.

The hotel has a secluded garden with a pool for the warmer months, and the bar is open unil around midnight. The food isn't anything special, so would plan to eat out, although they had food when we arrived after 11PM on a Friday night.

The hotel is around a 15 minute drive from the centre of Faro, which is worth a visit if you have any spare time, especially the old town area.

The hotel is a short taxi ride from the airport (about €7) and is well known. Its in a residential area but very close to the main highway. There is a convenient bus stop about 3 mins walk from the hotel, which takes you into Faro, but the buses seem to run a little erratically, so check the times with reception and be patient if its running late.
Check-in was pleasant with a very helpful lady on duty, and after dropping my bags in the room, I headed for the hotel bar, as there is no other choice outside. The food service had finished about 10pm, although the barman did offer us ham & cheese toasties as the kitchen was closed. This was a nice gesture.
The rooms were clean, but not very big. The bathrooms, again, adequate & clean. You wll get a good nights sleep as the area is quiet.
I didn't get to see the rest of the hotel facilities, as I had an early departure for the train station.
In fairness, in line with other comments, this is a reasonably priced (€55/night), functional hotel, in a great location for one nights stopover, and I would stay here again.

This lovely hotel is only five minutes from airport (approx 8 euros in a taxi) Hotel standard very good bar area excellent and very modern, continental breakfast what you would expect. staff very friendly and helpful. Courtsey bus to Faro and beach was a great bonus and saved us money on taxis. Faro Beach is 4-5 min. drive and is a lovely quiet beach with a few cafes for snacks one to visit.

Room Tip: only four floors pool at side of building great noise disturbance from any area.

Stayed here for one nght as our flight came in late and we weren't picking up the hire car until the following morning. (Only 5Eu cab fare from airport to hotel)
The room was recently refurbished, comfortable and clean. No frills, but for the £35.00 price I wasn't expecting any!
Enjoyed a drink in the bar - cheap prices!
Breakfast was basic but fine. The breakfast room is stuck somewhere circa 1984 (as are some of the public areas)
Asked at Reception about cabs to the airport and they offered us a free ride in their courtesy bus - Result!
Will definitely use this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room.

we stayed here 4 nights and and can have no complaints about the monaco hotel. ensuite room was spacious and clean, and breakfast was substantial, which helped set us up for the day ahead. Hotel also has a reasonable bar and outdoor swimming pool which although small is in a nice setting. Overall, this hotel was good value,quiet location (2 miles from centre of Faro) and only a 6 euro taxi fare from airport.
