When I booked I went direct to Sally rather than use a booking site. Got a good discount and I have to say that my room was well worth the money! Sally is a lovely host - really knowledgeable about the area and confident to recommend places, I like that! My room was clean and fresh sheets had been put... More

The place: filthy, the staff: one was not trained and the owner was rude, there was no wifi in my room even though advertised, no info about transport to airport available, the bed was too small for me to extend my legs

This is a place to avoid. Badly maintained in general terms, lack of hygiene in the rooms and mostly in both bathrooms. The owner is a very nice lady, but that´s not enough if you want to run a touristic infrastructure with quality

Staying at Sally's in Faro is the best decision you can make. She is so generous and kind and a perfect hostess. Rooms are comfortable and clean with a private shower and a great view! We went early May and all the trees were blossoming and smelled wonderful. Both Sally and Maria helped us as much as they could, telling... More

Thank you for your lovely review, it is appreciated. After some negative reviews when I have been away, it is great to see that all is as it should be and that I have a colleague who does maintain my high standards as I did have a few days off while you were here. I know you fell in love... More

The owner is helpful! The location is good you can arrive easily to the city center and bus station! The room was little and looked old but in line with others cheap accommodation! The bathroom cleaned! It is a good compromise if you want to pay less and be in a central location.

The guest house has unusable shower (small even for slim people) in the room and no shower to use outside the room. The owner is so strange that you can’t feel comfortable and safe there. Location is good but not worth the risk. Attention, the rooms are on the first floor.

Thank you for your review and I appreciate your comments. Our showers are standard size and it is a shame you found it unusable. Due to unforeseen circumstances I had to leave my business suddenly and I left it in the hands of someone who I trusted implicitly with going into my Guests bedrooms and handling money, he is not...
