we stayed here for 9 days the location was was very good close to the shops 5mins from the marina bus and train station. The staff were extremely helpful with any requests that we had and did their best to assist. The only complaint would be the
room that we were given which was directly above the front door of the hotel which meant that we could hear every time someone came in at night, whilst this was not a issue at this time of year I could see it being very annoying during the high season when the hotel would be busier and more people out later at night. All in we would return to this hotel for its location and the service we received
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel

Review of Santa Maria Hotel
2 Oct 2013
Right in town!
Hotel close to the historic attractions of Faro. All within walking distance from hotel. Terrain easy, not too many hills. Train and bus station just a few minutes walk away, easy to explore other towns.
Hotel breakfast was very good. Evening meal
service excellent, very good chef on duty while we were there. Plenty of other eateries around the city, good standard of cuisine, cleanliness and value.
Only recommend Faro itself for short breaks.
