With 5 star reviews on the main booking channels, Cardeal Suites & Apartments opens the doors to show you why it's the best place for your family vacations!


It is said that in 1720, the cardinal D. José Pereira de Lacerda had a fragrant garden right where we stand today. In that garden there was no time, just plants, light, tranquillity and the songs of birds that came to rest. So famous was the cardinal, that even a street was named after him, this very same street where we are located.

Family owned since 1941, the Cardeal suites & apartments’ building has been totally rebuilt infusing this space with a new life.

Located in downtown Faro, 500 meters away from the marina, the building still features its regional architecture, spreading itself from a central courtyard, a place of rest surrounded by the sounds of water and the colours from the garden (it may well be D. José’s…).

All nine apartments of Cardeal are carefully decorated in a contemporarily elegance, with a private bathroom and kitchen, as well as all other necessary amenities for a long and pleasant stay – our word as hosts on it!

The private parking lot and the elevator allow for the accessibility and security of all who which to stay in this calm and inclusive space, located within 15 minutes of Faro International Airport.

The Cardeal is, therefore, your place for living the holidays. A haven in a city in constant motion.

Alojamento de construção recente, com muita qualidade, e excelente localização. Fomos recebidos com toda a simpatia e disponibilidade por parte da anfitriã.

Peter Ernesti

Espaço fantástico para uns dias de descanso. Ambiente familiar e acolhedor. No centro de Faro e perto de tudo: praia, shopping, ria formosa, etc. Decoração fantástica, com muito bom gosto.

Patrícia Reis

Sitio cómodo, buena ubicación, atención perfecta y sobre todo nuevo, moderno y muy muy comodo

Jose Prieto

Un excellent point de chute à Faro ! Petit complexe de seulement 9 chambres, inauguré il y a peu, et construit de manière intelligente autour d'un très joli patio, chacune des chambres possédant des qualités distinctes, notamment balcons ou terrasses. Aménagement soigné et confort, propreté. Cuisinettes bien équipées. Et situation calme, ce qui n'est pas le cas de tous les hébergements bien situés à proximité du centre historique. Rues piétonnes du centre-ville, Marina et vieille ville à quelques minutes à pied seulement. Parking souterrain privatif et directement accessible pour se promener avec l'esprit tranquille. Claudia est de précieux conseil pour les nombreuses activités et adresses à ne pas rater. Merci Claudia pour votre accueil chaleureux, et attentionné jusqu'à la dernière minute de notre séjour. Une adresse où nous retournerons sans hésiter !
