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.

Not the best of the PortoBay Group

Have just stayed 3 weeks, hotel in very good cliff top position (although rather "out in the sticks") Could not fault front of house staff, Pedro, especially! - was given a lovely room with big balcony and superb sea view, BUT on arrival the first thing you see is a big notice board advertising Happy Hour, which states "limited drinks available" talk about off-putting, we always use Happy Hour in Madeira hotel and do so every night and have 3/4 drinks each, here we went for 4 times only, there was only one "cocktail" each night (which the 3 out of 4 were non-acoholic!) and none of the staff seemed to know what was and what wasnt available for Happy Hour, the worst was the bar was dark and drab, only ever 4 - 6 persons for the whole hour with male staff with an attitude problem !! - re-named it UnHappy Hour! so Management certainly lost out, instead of 21 x cash in the til, it was only 4 x cash in the til - we had problems in the restaurant for breakfast with male staff members (it seems all males over 45ish think that management pay their wages, NOT SO, its the guests that do this! ) - had several incidents and eventually felt most unwelcome in the restaurant - therefore did not go to the restaurant for dinner - Management lost out again - I would suggest that Management know exactly which members of staff have the attitude that we as guests are just a pain and have to be tolerated - will we come back NO!!More

"Stunning Location"

Just got home last night (22/11) after a short 3 night break in this superb hotel.....I took on board previous advice and requested a sea view room, we arrived at night and were both blown away by the superb views the following morning...the sea, sand ,cliffs an immaculate pool area, morning tea on the balcony beautiful blue sky great views does it get any better ? yes it does..... a fantastic breakfast buffet sat outside on a terrace overlooking the pool and in the sunshine. Very friendly helpful staff a credit to the hotel. I have stayed in the Crowne Plaza In Villamoura on several occasions and have enjoyed each visit however the Porto Bay is a step up. I will certainly return. The only slight critic and the reason I am not giving 5 stars is this .... although the evening meals were plentiful and of good quality in my opinion a little bit less cooked to an even higher standard would have been the icing on the cake. Thanks to all at the Hotel for making a good break into a great break.More

Spot On

Visited 16th-20th NOv 2015. The Hotel is spot on and exactly as you see on the website. very neat and tidy. Staff are very good. Good spread on the Breakfast. The food from the Restaurant during the day was again very good and portions are generous. Dinner again diiferent Theme every night plus a la carte good value. My only Bug was that in this day and age the Hotel does not provide FRee Wifi through out. Free wifi only in the lobby. otherwise 6 EUROS a day......More
