Where to stay in Faro

As the region's biggest city and one of the country's national hot spots for nightlife, vacations, and the great outdoors, Faro features a huge array of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels. Most of the larger international chains sit within the blocks surrounding the city harbor, and although staying in one can be pricey, it puts you within easy walking distance of the city's selection of bars, restaurants, clubs, and other establishments. For more budget-friendly accommodations check out a family-run inn, a bed and breakfast, or the opportunity to simply rent an extra room from a local--all of which are extremely common in Faro. These accommodations may be a little farther outside the city center, but you'll get a quiet nook in a nearby residential neighborhood away from the city bustle.

  • great staff, very cheap. there's an aquarium with local sea life made for touching! cool. :-)
  • Great science centre in the harbour area. It focused on life sciences and is a great diversion for an hour with the family. Our kids loved it. Their favourite thing was the touch pool.
  • Me and my family had a very good time there. The spiders and scorpions are amazing to see (and even touch). Very friendly and knowledgeable personal describing everything concerning arachnoids. Recommended, especially but not only, when you are with kids.
  • I personally spent a good time there. The museum is very interesting with many interactive objects. You can touch fishes there!
