Great location, friendly staff
This was a lovely B&B, with facilities and a rooftop terrace. The B&B is spotless, well serviced and the breakfast was very good. Just make sure you let them know any dietary needs in advance. WiFi was fine. No TV in the room but we were fine with this. In a really good location in the Old town with several bars and restaurants a few hundred metres away. Staff really friendly, they also provided us with a packed breakfast on our last day as we had an early start. Great price and location. Would stay again.

8/10 Very good

Sunshine people at sunlight house
Brilliant location. Iris is a lovely spacious apartment. We arrived very late due to flight delays and the staff could not have been more helpful in staying open for us. Very warm welcome and great advice on things to do. Rooftop terrace and dining area is truly stunning and the restaurant staff could not have been friendlier and served us some delicious food at breakfast. Only small thing to be aware of is that the hall of Faro centre basically sits underneath the flight path for the airport and as such some aircraft noise is unavoidable but that does not just relate to this property, it would be relevant anywhere in central Faro.

Great place for a night or two. Easy walk into town with ample parking close by and very attentive staff. Needs some updating.

10/10 Exceptional

This was an aptly named bed and breakfast accommodation since my room was bathed in sunlight owing to the large window. Sunlight house is centrally located in Faro only a short walk to the historic core of the city, My room was bright and spacious with a private bathroom. There was ample free public parking just steps away for my rent a car. The included breakfasts were of high quality and the staff were all courteous and professional - highly recommended when staying in Faro

Perfect.
We had a great couple of days at Sunlight. The staff could not have friendlier or more helpful, and we really liked having an outside space. The breakfast on the terrace each morning was a perfect start to the day.We plan to return one day.
