Faro in Portugal is a wonderful choice for a holiday and there is much to see and do. Faro is the gateway to the Algarve and from fabulous scenery to top golf resorts there's sure to be lots of interest for every age. Be sure to visit the Old Town where Faro Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace are both popular attractions. Take a water taxi to some of the beaches on the sandspit islands which form protection for the lagoon of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, or enjoy excellent local seafood dishes such as salt cod or try tapas in some of the great restaurants and bars. There are lots of hotels in Faro and the Algarve to cater to every taste and budget and you can even rent your very own holiday apartment in this friendly resort if you prefer to have your own space. With great shopping and a lively nightlife and entertainment scene, Faro is a terrific choice for a break.

For a hotel with wonderful views over Faro and the Ria Formosa nature reserve, the 4 star Hotel Eva is a good choice. It has its own pool but it's still nice and close to the beaches. Overlooking the marina and the Ria Formosa marshes, Hotel Faro is another nice 4 star selection. For those who prefer an apartment, there are some wonderful properties in Faro and you can book using an online apartment rental site, or directly from the owners. Hotel Ibis Faro is a good mid price option, and though it's a 20 minute walk to the centre of Faro from this 2 star hotel, it's clean and has a pool and service is very good for the price. Pousada de Faro Palace is a great luxury choice just outside the town and ideal for trips to the Algarve, while Hotel Adelaide close to the bus station is great for those on a budget. With a 24 hour bar and all day breakfast, everything you need is right there.

Whether you prefer a hotel in town or an Algarve apartment you can be certain that you'll find the perfect accommodation in Faro for you.
