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. This hotel is part of the A La Carte collection until April 2017. Until then, you’ll still enjoy all the great benefits, such as a private taxi to and from the airport.

Pleasant Surprise

Booked 3 nights in May as a stop over from Lisbon to Seville. Expecting an Ok resort with average food and service....Wrong! the staff is super friendly, breakfast was excellent, rooms are very clean and comfortable. Fantastic views and beautiful beaches. For the price this place is a gem. Were coming back for sure!More

Another wonderful chilled out stay

We have just returned from our second stay at this lovely hotel. If you are looking for a chilled out holiday this is the place. The hotel is very clean, well kept and comfortable, The staff are friendly and helful and the buffet breakfast was very good. It is about a 15minute walk away from the bay where there are several good restuarants. We paid extra for rooms with seaview which was worth it. It is a little pricey for us but you get what you pay for. We do hope to return there one day.More

Another fab week

Have just returned from our fourth visit at the Porto Bay and we enjoyed it as much as ever. What's changed? Well you can now have a romantic evening Italian meal at the Pool side restaurant with accompanying music from a live band. Not bad value my wife had spaghetti bolognaise and I had Lasagne. She was delighted mine was a little bland but enjoyable nevertheless. There is a non smoking section outside here. Thank you for listening. All you need to do now is do the same thing outside Buzios. We had a side Seaview room everything went to plan well organised and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Love the cocktails and the helpful young waiter who looked after us. The D.j. was prob the worst one I've ever heard though in a nice way. His main problem was no interaction with his audience and staring at a laptop all night is not what I call a D.J. The only other suggestion I could make is try getting a few different beers to drink. The local brew is truly awful after a couple of days. All in all another great week. Really enjoyable and we will be back. Well done.More

Two weeks in an almost perfect hotel

We had two weeks at the Portobay Hotel in Falesia. It's a lovely hotel, spacious, great restaurant, especially the Italian, the Il Basilica. It's not really a restaurant, it's an outdoor sitting area overlooking the sea and cliffs. It's a spectacular view and the meal is brought out. Good food but huge portions, too much for us! We were initially given a low floor suite which we had to reject as it was above the restaurant and very noisy with barely a sea view. The reception staff were excellent and moved us on day 3 to a much better room on the 4th floor, wonderful sea views and nice and quiet. There is a good spa and indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna etc. A bit Spartan but ok. The grounds are wonderful, a huge pool with plenty of loungers and space to relax. Highly recommended. More
