The Porto Bay Falesia provides fantastic views. Its clifftop location means its gardens look straight out to sea, with the panoramas broken only by pine trees. Plus, steps lead down to Praia da Falesia Beach, where the sands stretch for eight kilometres.
The hotel’s pool bar makes the most of the setting. Perched on the cliff edge, it’s a perfect spot for gazing over the sandstone rock formations and sea beyond. And as for the rest of the culinary line-up, you’ve got two restaurants – a smart buffet number and Il Basilico, which serves modern takes on classic Italian cuisine.
Outside, the pool is framed by terraces and pines. You’ll find sunloungers placed in the best viewpoints around the lawns, as well.
Another plus point of this place is the location. Although the hotel is in a peaceful spot, it’s just a five-minute walk from the restaurants and shops at Olhos d’Agua.

Birthday treat for 3 night
This is probably the finest hotel i have stayed in within Europe. The first impression was excellent, very well maintained looked almost new even though 6 years old. The ground were kept immaculate and staff were constantly cleaning. The reception area was inviting with flowers on reception. The room was excellent with a 6 foot bed and plenty of storage. The beds was very comfortable and a great night sleep was had. The bathroom was very luxurious inc a Bidet. The shower was in the bath and unusually high shower head ( I'm 6ft 5) and delivered a hot high pressure shower. We were half board. Breakfast was of a very high quality with 6 different cereals a fruit bar, meats and cheese bar, a massive choice of breads and rolls and conserves. Also included was a full Cooked breakfast with egg bar and pancakes. Evening meal was a themed buffet ( we had Italian, fish and Brazilian) food was plenty full and of the highest quality. The hotel had a external and internal pool with a Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and full treatment centre (sauna an steam room 5€ charge) . Facility also had gym tennis courts and many more facilities inc games area and children's play area. Overall rated this as a top quality accommodation and was worthy of its Thomson 4 stars.More
Great Hotel, stunning location
I`ve stayed in the hotel about 6 or 7 times now, as a solo traveler and a couple, I also enjoyed it so much my sisters are both now fans!! The hotel itself is clean with ample rooms, the attraction for me is the stunning location, set on the edge of the cliffs looking out to sea, with so many different outdoor areas to choose from, no matter what time of day you can always find somewhere outside to sit in the shade and even when the hotel is full it never seems busy. Cocktails in the bar are a must and reasonably priced, I`d recommend the `Manhattan Long Island Iced tea` best I`ve ever tasted and I`ve tried a few!! If you feel like a walk you can take the steps down to the beach though the climb back up is not for the faint hearted!! I`ve walked along the beach to Villamoura (takes about an hour and 15 minutes} so best done in the morning.You can jump on the bus to Albufeira or walk and enjoy a bit more bustle, a taxi back costs about 6 Euros.Just booked my next trip for April...Can`t wait!!More

A New Years Eve not to be forgotten
Arrived at the hotel on New Years Eve for a week's holiday. Greeted by friendly and helpful reception staff who informed us our table had been booked for the New Years Eve Gala Dinner. Our room overlooked the pool with a sea view and was very clean and comfortable. The Gala Dinner and entertainment afterwards was excellent - good choice of well cooked food, glasses constantly topped up with local red or white wine and the atmsophere was fantastic. The entertainment afterwards by a Brazilian Dance Troupe and a two piece band filled the dance floor and welcomed in the New Year. Champagne was delivered and everyone danced and enjoyed themselves into the early hours. New Years Day Brunch was also excellent and we once again had champagne and sat outside enjoying the lovely views from the restaurant and the pleasant sun. We could not fault the food and service we received during our stay and the rooms were comfortable, clean and relaxing. The hotel is located on the top of the cliffs and offers beautiful views, there is a beach located at the bottom of the steps from the hotel and if you turn to the right and walk along the beach you reach the small village of Olhos. There was a few small shops and bars open but most of the village was closed, however found a lovely little cafe bar and bakery which served excellent coffee and cakes - nice to just sit and relax before walking back up the hill to the hotel. The hotel started to empty quite quickly and we were informed the day we left that the hotel was closing down for 6 weeks for renovations ready for the next season. All the staff were so helpful and really seemed to go out of their way to give good servicel. The hotel really does deserve its 4 star status and we would have no reservations about returning here to once again enjoy a luxurious and relaxing holiday.More
