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.

Porto Bay Falesia Hotel - Fantastic Views Fantastic Hotel Fantastic Service
I visited this hotel 4.5 years ago and was so impressed I knew I would return! I wrote to the hotel with my room request and to book direct prior to travelling - was definitely not disappointed! Hotel: Spotlessly clean, fantastic service, staff very accommodating. Room light, spacious, bathroom had emergency cord, balcony private lovely views. Very relaxing and a chilled atmosphere, lots of outdoor quiet sitting areas Stunning views over clifftops to sea and long sandy beaches Short walk downhill down many steps, then along track to beach Good choice of food, nothing too fancy - items replenished regularly Entertainment - a variety each night Location:: In exclusive area with other good quality hotels up a hill fro the small and quiet resort of Olhos d' Agua Lovely walks: ?6 miles along sandy beach to Vilamoura - just 2 open beach bars en route in November as low season. No sun loungers on beach then either. Same in March previous visit. Feel safe walking around here on own. Beautiful views of the different coloured rocks with great views from top of cliffs - just left of hotel is a clifftop - gorgeous. Further left from hotel is a wooden bridge and walkway with beautiful views, access to several small beaches, some rocks and conntinue further over the top to Olhos d' Agua where there's a handful of bars and restaurans - v small. You can't walk all the way to Albufeira as usually tide and rocks won't allow you to. Can walk along the road via footpaths though - very long walk. There are busses - which I didn't take. If you like great service, views, accommodation with peace and quiet - you will love it here! Check out their website. Ps I am very particular about holiday accommodation - so must be good!More
Porto Bay Falesia lives up to expectations
We arrived here on Hogmanay for a week's stay over New Year. Having stayed twice previously at the Porto Mare in Madeira, we had high expectations and I am delighted to say we weren't disappointed in any way. Our rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean, service was friendly and efficient in all departments, and the standard and variety of food was high. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens, and the views over the sea. Lucky with warm and sunny weather, all in all it was a great experience.More
Great Christmas holiday
Everything was perfect! It was our second stay at Porto Bay hotel, the first was at Porto Mare Funchal and this stay has been absolutely great as the first stay! The location is unbelievable, all hotel staff are professional and friendly, food is super, hotel room with beautiful sea view, there is nothing wrong. We spent 13 nights there in Dec/Jan and we didn't want to leave:-) It was one of the best Christmas for me and my husband there!More

Perfect for a quick getaway
Just got back from a short break where we stayed at the lovely Porto Bay Hotel. First time to Portugal and definitely will be back. The rooms were very cosy and the bed super comfortable. The included breakfast buffet was very extensive and something for everyone. All of the staff were super helpful and always polite except for one bartender in Buzios. The indoor pool was great and we were in the very hot jacuzzi most days. The views were amazing and it is such a relaxing place. Although most things were closed as it was winter it was still well worth a visit. More
