The location and the grounds are stunning. Unfortunately what ruins the hotel from being on top is the cheap interiors and it needing renovations to make it current(circa 1990's modern). The awful powerful perfume smell is also off putting. At the end of the day, if the interiors in the lobby and rooms were redone it would be one of...

We stayed here for our honeymoon. There was nothing special that they did for us for our honeymoon, but we thought the hotel staff were really kind and thoughtful. The restaurant, while pricey, is excellent- some of the best food we had in Europe. We loved that they even have a pillow menu for the bedrooms. they were renovating the...

We have recently returned from a four night stay at the Farol hotel. The location is great - walking distance to the town with amazing views over the sea. What makes this hotel special is the front of house staff. Nothing is a problem for them. We had to amend/change restaurant reservations most days and they always sorted it out...

Great hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Very clean with lots of artwork throughout the hotel. Our room was very spacious with a nice private garden area. Sushi restaurant upstair was one of the best I have ever eaten. The hotel is a short walk from the main town but very close to the marina and surrounding period buildings.

The views are incredible and the position can't be beaten. The service is also very good too- helpful and friendly. The food, although pricey, was excellent. However, I had read the positive online reviews and was slightly disappointed in our room ( a designer one) which looks out on the roof above the restaurant to the sea beyond. There was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Planted on the edge of the rocks that rise out of the ocean, Farol Hotel is set in a mansion dating back to 1890, formerly owned by the Count of Cabral. In 2002 an extension was built, creating a superb innovative interface between the 19th century original building and the daring new contemporary structure extending over the rocks and offering superb views of the Atlantic and most picturesque sunsets. Unique in concept, the designer rooms originated from an invitation to select top Portuguese fashion designers to "dress a room." ... more   less
