Algarve Hotel Quinta do Atlantico
Ranked #25 of 28 Hotels in Faro
Reviewed 29 August 2010

We really liked Quinta do Atlantico. It is a small (only 6 rooms) charming B&B hidden in the hills above Faro. Most rooms have a balcony and a fantastic view.
The same views are also available from the pool area where there are lounge chairs and a shaded area (you need it if you visit in August!). The pool is deep and not suited for small children.
The breakfast was more then adequate (one should not expect the same as in a 300 room hotel) and very fresh.
Note that there is no airco so it can get a bit hot. There are fans in the rooms however.
Quinta do Atlantico is close to the village of Santa Bárbara de Nexe (2km) where there are restaurants and a supermarket.
It is about a 15 minute drive to downtown Faro.

Reviewed 4 October 2007

This is a small, two storey, 'boutique' hotel, in a quiet and peaceful location in the hills above Faro, with unobstructed views down to the coast. The grounds are rather wild - deliberately I think. The swimming pool and its surroundings are excellent.

The rooms are undeniably small. There is no airconditioning and the fan provided in the room was of little benefit. The weather was very hot when we were there and a decent night's sleep was impossible.

The breakfast was good, but no dinners are available unless by previous arrangement.

The owners are very friendly and helpful but we were told that the hotel was being sold and that a new owner should be in place by October.

If this new owner is prepared to put a (considerable) sum of money into modernising, particularly in installing air conditioning, this could be a very desirable hotel in which to stay.

A warning. American Express credit cards are not accepted. An American couple were very incensed by this ("We come from the greatest country in the world and you do not accept our leading credit card" Note:- many places in Europe don't) This charmless couple apparently left after one night without paying their bill.
