Porto Bay Falesia  

This stylish hotel has some of the best views in the Algarve. It’s also got access to a beautiful sandy beach.

The hotel’s clifftop location gives you some amazing sea views. And there are steps leading to an 8-kilometre sandy beach. Meanwhile, it’s a 5-minute walk to Olhos d’Agua’s shops and restaurants.

This place has two pools – a peaceful lake-style number, and an indoor pool by the spa. For meals, there’s a buffet restaurant and an upscale Italian, as well as a pool bar serving lunches.

Very ordinary, geared toward tour operators and groups

This is the 2nd time that I've been so let down by TA reviews. A lot of "Exceptional, excellent, high standard, fantastic, brilliant" etc reviews and of the course the "awards" granted by holiday sites made me pleased that this hotel was chosen. However once there, it was such a disappointment for me. Staff averagely pleasant, entrance filled with people and their suitcases waiting for their coaches to arrive (yes, it's like a station, a lot of tour operators picking people up or dropping them off), huge variety but no quality buffets, 80/90's karaoke evenings, you have to pay extra for the safe, bath robes, omelettes, internet, espresso coffee etc etc. You do need a car to get around, to visit the area. I think this hotel has quite a few loyal guests and travel agencies who return, so it does meet other people's expectations of a 4* hotel. Great for the hotel, but I'm one of the minority who won't be staying there again. Good point, beautiful sea view from our small plain bedroom and veranda. We visited the Sheraton, (5*, more expensive but more luxurious), where we had several meals and asked to see a few rooms and this will be our choice should we go back to Albufeira.More

Christine G,

Very good hotel close to Albufeira

Excellent location and breathtaking ocean views. Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast and great italian restaurant. Situated on a cliff with access to the famous Falesia beach. Rooms are slightly outdated, but still fine and the ones with sea views compensate everything. Pools and tennis courts. Wifi - difficult to handle.More


Lovely return

We were last in Olhos D'agua about 15 years ago,it's essentially the same with a few extra posh hotels. This is one of them.Cannot fault our short stay here, the staff were courteous and efficient, we stayed on a B and B basis , too many good restaurants in the village to do anything else. Breakfast was really good with an almost bewildering array of choice, there can be a bit of a scramble for outside seating but inside dining is very pleasant too. The swimming pool was really nice, if a bit nippy and there was no problem obtaining sun beds , but we were there late in the season.Its a relatively undemanding walk to the beach and village. Our room was fine and it was certainly worth having a sea view. We'd return there without question. More
