Faro International AirportFAOFaro, Portugal
Located in Main Terminal (Inside Security). After security, follow signs towards Gates A to ‘Other Destinations’. The lounge is located on the 1st Floor between the shops and restaurant area.
    Travel times are estimates and are not guaranteed. Airports may require you to re-clear security and immigration control to reach the lounge. Clearing security might require a boarding pass departing from the terminal. For lounges inside security or immigration, you must first check your baggage and obtain your boarding pass.
    Needs ImprovementQuiet. Friendly staff & free to explore. Price point too dear considering the space offered. As an economy traveller it's worth considering, especially as the rest of the airport is under construction.

    SatisfactoryPerfectly pleasant and quiet airport lounge. Nothing outstanding, but decent selection of drinks and an OK selection of snacks.

    SatisfactoryGreen pillows and aviation themed wallpaper are some pretty cool touches. Plenty of places to sit while you sip on soft drinks or bottled water.
