Hotels Close to Faro Airport

By Rute Oliveira

Faro Airport is located in the Montenegro district to the west of Faro. If you have an early morning or a late night flight there are a few hotels located close to the airport which may be an alternative to an early morning/late night drive.

The closest hotels to the airport are the Hotel Ibis and Hotel Monaco which are located in Montenegro. Montenegro is not a typical tourist destination, so away from the hotels there isn't a lot to do, and most locals don't speak English. Montenegro has a bank, a few shops including a typical Portuguese Pastelaria (pastry/coffee shop), small bars and restaurants mainly frequented by locals where you can sit outside and watch Algarve people going about their everyday lives. Hotel Monaco Montengro Faro

Hotel Monaco (Montenegro)

Distance around 2km from Faro Airport

Price: Medium

Hotel Monaco is located in the leafy residential suburbs of the Montenegro district of Faro. The hotel has an outdoor pool and serves food until 11PM most nights (later on some nights), so is ideal if you arrive on a late flight. The hotel is clean and very reasonably priced (around 60-70 Euros per night for 2 people including breakfast).

The main downside of the hotel is that there isn't that much to do in the immediate vicinity, however it is worth having a walk around the area immediate surrounding the hotel where there are some of Faro's most exclusive houses with some amazing gardens containing sub-tropical trees and flowers.

There are a few local shops in Monenegro including a supermarket where prices are low as it caters for locals rather than tourists.

Hotel Aeromar (Faro Beach)

Distance around 3km from Faro Airport

Price: Medium

Hotel Aeromar is located just across the road from Faro beach and has a number of rooms with sea views at the front of the building. These rooms get a lot of sun as they are south facing. The rooms at the back of the building have less sun (none in winter), but overlook the Rio Formosa. Hotel Aeromar Faro

The interior of the hotel is a bit dated, but the prices reflect this. If you book this hotel in winter turn the heating on in the room overnight as the rooms get cold!

The best thing about Hotel Aeromar (apart from the beachside location) is the bar and restaurant area which serve fabulous food at very reasonable prices. The red wine is excellent quality and very cheap (less than 10 Euros a bottle for a quality house wine). Many locals frequent the bar which has to be a good sign.

To get there follow signs for Faro beach from the Faro Airport roundabout. The hotel is ideal if you want to be in a fairly quiet location next to the sea. The water at Faro beach gets deep very quickly, so it is not deal for small children.

There is plenty of parking space, and free Wi-Fi is available in the hotel reception area.
