Enjoyed the hotel

The hotel is not in the centre but is very near to the airport. The hotel monaco is a no frill hotel but what makes it better is that the staff are very helpful. If the hotel was upgraded a bit it would a better place to stay. There is a lift to all floors. There is a reasonable bus service to and from the hotel to the to faro. The hotel is within walking distance of shops and cafes--montenegro area. The hotel is in a quiet location. I stayed for 7 days and did enjoy my stay, if you want a centre location then this is not the place.

The best thing about my stay was...

Friendly Monaco

Excellent location and very friendly and helpful staff. We have stayed at the Monaco on 4 occassions now and will return. Rooms comfortable, quiet not luxurious which for the price is understandable. We were provided with a Breakfast pack due to an early flight time prior to restaurant opening at 07.30

Location and Cool Pool

The Hotel is an ideal location for the Faro Bike Club Rally in July we love it. It is clean and comfortable, the bar service is very slow but friendly, Jug of Sangria very reasonable!. The pool area is ideal to chill out in the day. The breakfast is ok, but the 4 piece toaster painfully slow!

The best thing about my stay was...

Location, Pool and clean.

Cheap and cheerful

Stayed for an overnight after a late flight in - nice clean room with balcony, pool lovely. Breakfast room a bit odd, no windows as it's in the basement - coffee was gross !! Went for a wander after breakfast, and the hotel is just around the corner from some great little Portuguese coffee shops and restaurants, so considering maybe staying a few days next time.

Very comfortable

The Monaco is only 5 mins from Faro airport and is only about €5 by taxi . The staff are very friendly and helpful . The rooms are very comfortable and well decorated and kept spotless by the staff . The breakfast is continental but there is a great choice and it is all fresh . The only drawback is the distance to the centre of Faro and the beach but there is a courtesy bus available most mornings and afternoons and taxis are readily available . Overall would stay at the Monaco Hotel again .

The best thing about my stay was...

The relaxing atmosphere of the hotel .

Meets a 1 night stay

The hotel was clean and as described close to the airport. The pool area was very small and would not meet your needs of a holiday base. There were no pool towels available due to a delivery problem. Our room was very dark & we had to request a further light from reception - we were provided with a lamp from the reception area which provided sufficient light but should not have been necessary. We could not look the sliding doors, although thankfully we were on the 1st level.

impressed for the price

very nice rooms good housekeeping. nice little pool .lacked some atmosphere very quiet needed some music at pool . breakfast ok but not much variety. learn to use buses as otherwise taxi from hotel to town and beach will add up. close to airport

We stayed in the Monaco Hotel for 3 nights recently and I must say I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. The rooms were clean, bright, and well laid out. The staff were very friendly and helpful, with a easy going attitude. The desk staff was particularity helpful. The breakfast was not the greatest but there is plenty in nice places around the hotel. All in all an excellent place to stay.

Welcoming staff and very clean hotel

This was my second time this year to stay at Hotel Monaco. Once again the staff were kind, friendly and helpful. The hotel itself and the bedrooms were very clean. The pool area is also maintained very well. I will definitely return to hotel Monaco in the future.

The hotel staff were very nice and helpful and we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The rooms were pretty standard but very nice and clean. We had no problem with the hotel or the staff in general. The only problem was the location which was quite remote from the beach, Faro town center and other attraction. We spent a lot of money on taxi.

We visit Faro frequently, (5 or 6 times a year), and have stayed at most hotels in Faro and at the Monaco maybe 4 or 5 times over many years. It is convenient for the town and the beach. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the breakfast sufficiently varied and the room-cleaning efficient and quickly accomplished. We use the hotel as it is economically price, has a good swimming pool and, as we have a young child and need 3 beds in a room, a comfortable place to stay as the the triple rooms have enough rooom to move around in, as oppsoed to some which put an extra bed in the only available spare space!

City Break

Alot of renovation going on during our stay, but not the rooms!!Room in need of decor, Curtains mouldy, carpets stained. Breakfast basic. We travel often on city breaks, although the hotel is close to the airport so ok for a stopover but thats it!!,main Faro is 4 kms away and the taxi drivers moan at the short fair. We would not stay here again.

If you want to use the internet in your room make sure you ask fro a room not on the fourth floor as the hotel wifi does not work on this floor. Building work was going on during my stay but the hotel was still comfortable. It is very handy for the airport and the car hire companies collection and drop off points

Review of 'MONACO'

It's close to the airport,and there's public transport or a cab into the city centre.<br />Good breakfast,the rooms are comfortable enough,with a staggering amount of cable TV channels(both in English and other languages.Only drawback is at weekends,public transport really thins out,and you have to get a cab into the city centre.You can have your evening meal in the hotel(I did't eat there,so I can't comment on that).<br />I would stay there again.One word of warning-prices in the Algarve skyrocket in the summer,so this place will be much more expensive in season.

Review of 'MONACO'

The Monaco, Faro, Portugal, is very well placed for the airport & the car hire return stations nearby.<br />It is in Montenegro, adjacent to the airport road, & some distance from the centre of Faro.The street name does not appear on Faro maps.It can be difficult to find. However, when driving to the airport, the roof sign can be seen from the main road, near the prominent TUI building.<br />The hotel is modern, clean, well run & excellent value for money.<br />It is an excellent place to stay when travelling to or from Faro airport, but it is in a quiet residential area some distance from the centre of town. It is well placed for the N 125 East-West coastal road & for the coastal motorway, which joins the North-South motorway to Lisbon & Porto.
