Good hotel

My wife and I spent 1 week at the Porto Bay Falesia. The location of the hotel is stunning .The staff is very pleasant and friendly.The room were spacious and clean.Breakfast was really good with a great selection of fresh fruit, cereals, cheese and meats. Olhos Agua is about 10 minutes walk down the hill with a few bars,restaurants and a lovely little beach.The only downside was no free WIFI. Overall a great hotel. We used a transfer company called Yellow fish taxis, clean cars with free WIFI. Excellent company.More

Great Service.

We had a fantastic time at the Porto Bay Falesia. We wanted an out of the way / far from the maddening crowd sort of place & this certainly ticked all the boxes. The only downside was that we did not have a Sea View room, that would have made it Perfect! (Maybe next time if we go that way again.) The food was great & the staff were very helpful. They were able to organise several meals around my wife's & daughter's requests. They are both Vegetarians & even though there was a choice each night the staff were able to adapt some of the meat dishes into a Vegetarian option. We also joined in one or two of the events that Lucia helped run. She also came around & chatted to the guests at night. So if you do want to go here, try getting a Sea View if you can as that would probably make it the 'Icing on the Cake'. We would defiantly go back again.More

Hotel Stay

Fantastic Hotel, such attention to detail, food lovely and a beautiful location, couldn't ask for more. Would definitely visit again. We were here to sell our property, so being in a nice place took the sting out. We would love to bring our family and friends here sometime in the future. Wynne and Glyn Jones North WalesMore

Really perfect place

We spent about 2 week at the Porto Bay Falesia. This was the 1st time we have stayed at this hotel and we were very impressed. We had a side sea view room on the 4th floor which had a view of the court of the neighbour hotel also. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, they can speak different languges. The quality of food was exclusive! There are three restaurants, including one with open terrace. We enjoyed the path to the beach with the smell of pines - real inhalation!More

Excellent Hotel and Excellent Staff

My Wife and I stayed at the Porto Bay Falesia Hotel in the last week of October. The hotel was superb and the staff were extremely helpful and polite. We had a twin room with a sea view on the 4th floor which overlooked the outdoor pool and the sea and the view from the balcony was superb. The room was not large, but was comfortable and the beds were very comfortable with excellent pillows. There was a LCD TV. However, the only programmes in English were the news channels such as SKY, BBC World, CNN etc. There was a HDMI input on the back which you could connect a laptop or tablet (The Tesco HUDL has a mini HDMI output) and watch any programmes you had downloaded before leaving the UK or watch live TV using an app called FilmonTV which allows you to watch English and other foreign stations live anywhere in the world on your tablet or laptop. However, you do need a reasonable WiFi signal. The hotel has a good WiFi system and the signal in the room was quite strong. There is a small daily charge for WiFi in your room, but WiFi in public areas is free. There is a room safe, but again there is a minimal charge. To use the safe you have to obtain a key which goes in the back of the door to activate the keypad locking mechanism. The safe is quite small and I found difficulty in getting all my valuables which included a camera in a case and two tablet computers in and closing the door as the key, which had to remain in place, protruded into the interior of the safe as did the door hinge. There was a mini bar which we did not use and I asked at reception if they could empty the minibar so that we could use the fridge for beers, wine and milk and they were very happy to do so with no charge. The room also had coffee and tea making facilities. Although the hotel had two restaurants you are not tied to eating in the hotel. There are a range of restaurants within easy walking distance and the reception even provide a street map with restaurants and food shops marked on. The service and food at the poolside bar was very good and not too expensive. The breakfast was a buffet, with chefs preparing some dishes. There is access to the beach, but this is via over 100 steps, but the steps are wide and fairly easy to negotiate, unless you have a mobility problem. Tips. Ask for a seaview room. It is worth the extra. Take a HDMI cable to connect your laptop/tablet to the TV to watch English TV Ask them empty the mini bar so that you can store milk, beer, wine etc.More
