Day 1 - 15 Aug 2021

Faro Airport

Faro, Faro Airport

Content: Connections from UK to Faro are very common. There is plenty of companies that will offer you a transfer from the airport to your accommodation to Lagos, however if you don’t mind catching an Uber to the Faro train station(€4-7) and then taking the train, it’s a very pleasant ride. Faro and Lagos are directly connected and Lagos is the last stop. The duration of the train trip is about 2h. Just enough to catch up with the reading of your favorite book. The train ticket will cost you about €5. This will probably save you about €20 compated to a standard shuttle. Outside the Faro train station you will find a lovely cafe where you can indulge in a cup of coffee or cold beer as well as a sandwich or whatever you fancy at the time.

Content: Tivoli is a beautiful hotel. It has an amazing swimming pool, rooms are nice and modern, cleaned daily. We chose a half board option as financially it worked out well. Breakfast and dinner sorted! Hotel has a big selection of food for both breakfast and dinner. Staff is very professional and helpful. I wasn’t a big fan of the cappuccino machine, it just didn’t taste right. Dinner offered a wide selection of choice too, everyday chef served different type of fish, meat and veggy option. Drinks are not included in the evening meal. We were just getting a bottle of water for €3, I think it was mayb 1,5l bottle. More than enough for two people. Hotel has a free shuttle to one of the beaches too. Some of the sunbeds are free(beach), but if you would like to get a sunbed at the beach club you have to pay. I went for a free option. 🤩 Our first day we relaxed at the hotel’s pool and enjoyed a couple of drinks from the bar. Prices are very reasonable.

Content: As I mentioned our food was more or less sorted as we purchased the half board option. Each day we discovered a new beach, to fully enjoy it you really do need a full day. If you walk(like me), then it will be a full day trip. Make sure you have a plenty of water as the sun can be really strong!
