I booked a two-night room there last month. It just appeared to be the cheapest room I could ever find on booking.com for this period. Well, it looks a bit odd and it's next to the Church, but who cares? It is the cheapest room of the town. You have a bed and a bathroom for the price, and that's...

What a great find! For less than £10pppn, we got ourselves a double room with an ensuite. It's certainly a little tired looking, and might appreciate a bit of tarting up, but it was spotlessly clean and the shower had decent water pressure and was hot hot hot! Except for on the day we left there was no water running...

I stayed at Residencial Dandy in the end of 2012. It was a very short weekend trip so I was not looking for fancy hotel, which could have been easily found in the region. I made an online reservation for 2 nights but due to transportation problem I phoned the receptionist (a lady) and she told me it was OK...

. Stayed here for a weekend in August. Extremely quirky place. Landlord reminded me of Rigsby, a skinflint character from a 70s TV comedy. He pointed to his heart and said bad when telling me he couldn’t help me with my bag. However he recovered quickly when a woman needed help. The Furniture was as old as the Portuguese empire....

Everyone says this guest-house has a bit of quirk to it, and it's true. But we liked it! It is clean and functional and central and inexpensive. And we loved Faro... more than we expected, honestly. Good value, if you are easy.

Beautiful sprawling pensao crammed with oddball decorations. Very high ceilings and quite comfy beds. Hasn't had a refit in, oooh, 20-odd years, but it's clean and more or less everything works. No travel cot for baby but otherwise no complaints. Not exactly US-style "have-a-nice-day" service with a style, but baaaaaa

Our room was traditional and fairly basic but comfortable and immaculately clean. We did not see the owner or staff often and we were left to come and go as we pleased. There was plenty of hot water and our en suite had a bath and shower. Our room was very quiet and we were never disturbed. The central location...

This hostel is very cheap. Maybe one of the cheapest in Faro. So you should be aware that the rooms are small and there might be a lack of service. If you accept that, this stay is quite okay. The staff is unfriendly and doesn't speak a proper English. The most important fact is that the hostel is very clean!...

The worst accommodation ever (So far 350-400 different places) Grumpy and dictatorial host, No hot water, very small room (until I demanded another one) No internet (had to "steel" it from the neighbour), extremely noisy outside at night.. several times I had to shout... etc etc... I would absolutely not reccomend it to anyone. FARO is fantastic - everything.. EXCEPT...
