Visited the hotel for drinks with friends, happy hour was a complicated manoeuver as 'premium' wasn't included, and what they classed as premium wasn't so clear, but we got there in the end, the wasabi martini I thought was delicious. However that aside the actual bar was stylish and beautiful, the view was gorgeous, and the bar staff were very...

We had drinks and a salad on their terrace, overlooking the sea. There was hardly anybody else outside so we were very lucky. The view is to die for, the service excellent! Would definitely consider staying here if in the area!

We booked this hotel for its location. 3 days before the trip we needed to cancel it, but the hotel refused that and threatened to charge full 5 days for no show. We had to travel separately with my wife on different days to save our money.We had paid extra for a sea-view room, but the room was a joke....

When staying on the seaside we love to be right on the edge of the water - at Farol Hotel you get it 100%. One can enjoy stunning vews of the sea already at breakfast and it continues till dawn, always surrounded by friendly staff and remarkable modern art all over the place. Can it be any better?

Don't be fooled by the somewhat humble exterior, this hotel is pure bliss. And design it is, the interior is a feast of funky furniture, quirky arts, black velvet sofas, amazing chandeliers and stunning views on the sea. I booked a balcony room over Christmas 2016 for 5 nights and had the best times. We were upgraded to a suite,...

Whenever we go away (whether for a full blown month-long holiday or one night away), my hubby usually spends weeks (months, in some cases) researching the many different hotels in order to find some real gems and offers.

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
