About Hotel Carvoeiro Plaza, Carvoeiro

The Hotel Carvoeiro Plaza is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Carvoeiro, within walking distance of shops, restaurants and entertainment, and only 25 meters from the beach. Faro Airport is only 50 minutes away. While exploring the area, you will still see fishermen unloading their day's catch for the local market. The hotel's location makes it an ideal starting point for a visit to the Algarve region.

Hotel Features.
Set in a sunny, second-story terrace and flanked by the hotel and an apartment house, a 50-by-35-foot (15-by-11-meter) heated pool provides year-round swimming. From the hotel's entrance, guests walk across the town's plaza to a 70-yard (65-meter) beach of clean, coarse sand lapped by the Atlantic Ocean between tawny cliffs. Free breakfast is served every morning, and a dozen overstuffed chairs are available in the lobby for socializing and quiet reading. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available upon request and with advanced notice. Free WiFi Internet is also available in public areas.

    It was ok
    The area is absolutely beautiful. This beach is really busy though but it’s not far to some more quiet beaches. The only frustration we had is with the minimal parking spaces the hotel provides. It was really hard to find an area nearby to put the car and check in and the car park is limited.

    Great hotel centrally located in Carvoeiro
    First time I have stayed at Carvoeiro Sol and it wont be the last. Great location, warm and friendly staff. Perhaps a little dated and in need of some refurbishment but apart from this good hotel. Breakfast was also good. The only negative, the English "sunbed snappers".The Hotel has signs stating sunbeds cannot be reserved with towels but this did not stop several people, they were out early every morning to claim their beds and also to claim mattresses that were required for other beds. It used to be a supposed German trait but no longer. Management should enforce their ruling.

    Carvoeiro Sol hotel, location fantastic, staff great, good breakfast, overall condition of hotel room not good in need of a lot of updating.
