I stayed in the Eva Hotel with a room overlooking the marina. From what I can remember, the restuarants were excellent, and the shopping pretty good too. As for places to visit, one of interest is the Chapel of Bones.
I was thinking of staying in Faro early next year to celebrate my 40th birthday, but found the hotels pretty expensive, so have opted for Tavira instead, but will visit Faro for the day.
I am sure someone will be able to give you a bit more uptodate info.
Anyone else got any comments to make about Faro please?
If you have any particular questions I will do my best to answer them
Faro is beautiful. Been there several times in the past 5 years. Shopping is very good and if you come across any bakeries look for the butter caramel hard coated balls which are to die for as are the custard tarts "natas". Order a "Galloe" too as it is like a delicious latte. Near the marina is the train station and if in your 3 days there you get your fill of Faro, I recommend visiting Olhao (old town charm with a cobble street as narrow as 2 feet-my parents home town), Albufeira (great night life), or Portimao/Praia da Rocha (spectacular beach).
Portugal is stunning....next time visit longer, in warmer weather and tour the entire region of Algarve. My website has lots of information on the towns and villages very close by, but you have to find me under private rentals section of this website. Enjoy Portugal Emgin!
