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.
