    Poor response to feedback .. but nice location

    Nice central location. We were greeted very professionally and upgraded , however the upgrade was very hot and when we opened the door the street noise was very loud. We complained and their only solution was down grade us to our original room which was quieter.. I asked if we could take a upgrade room on the marina side and they said that was not possible. The hotel was mostly empty due to off season and covid so I don’t see how this was not possible. Shame as we were trying to support local tourism as best w can. The breakfast was exceptional on the top floor really enjoyed that !!

    Brilliant check in

    It was an out of season visit and so the hotel wasn't busy which meant that when we arrived early the two gentlemen that greeted us were able to allow us to check in early and they also gave us a parking permit that allowed us to park in front of the hotel for no charge. The check in experience was brilliant! We'd asked for superior rooms with a marina view and I'd definitely recommend these rooms as the view is worth having. Breakfast was a little disappointing, the fresh cooked options were pretty limited and the cooked buffet wasn't great. But the fresh fruit and pastries were fine. The view from the restaurant was good and there was live music each day which was a surprise. We ate in the Adao restaurant one evening which was very pleasant as was the bar area. We weren't disturbed by the passing aircraft but as it was low season there weren't very many coming or going, it may well be different in the higher seasons. All in all a good stay

    Amazing Stay

    Hotel was absolutely amazing! We had the best customer service from the time we arrived, until we left. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very comfortable. The breakfast was amazing. It’s in a perfect location for a relaxing couple of days in Faro. 100% recommend.

    Good to be back

    Always a great welcome at Eva, from the taxi greetings at the airport to the check in at hotel, a good way to start a trip to catch up with family. The lower floor rooms on the road are a bit noisy but overall it is the place we return to each trip

    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.
