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.

Our Spring break.

After over twelve years we decided to return to Portugal for a weeks break , hoping to find a little sun and warmer weather than here in UK. Chose the Algarve and in particulary Olas,d,Agua . Found this beautiful Hotel called Porto Bay Falesia . Wow were we lucky. The hotel sits on the high cliffs above the bay with gorgeous views over their pool .The staff on arrival were amazing and made booking in a pleasure . Rooms are adequate and sparkling clean . Three lifts move you to all floors so don't worry about carrying bags up lots of steps. The beds are so comfortable , and bedding changed and room cleaned every morning while you are down enjoying breakfast. Breakfast is buffet style oh yea , you can spend a long time choosing it as the variety is splendid . The whole area of the hotel is spotless whether eating in or outside and the staff bless them help all they can . If you want to go to the beach it is a short walk of about ten minutes down the hill past a few small shops and cafes. Or!!! Try the 131 steps down cliff to smaller beach with cafe situated on the sands. Just remember it's all uphill going back lol. We were so delighted that we are planning to return in September. Please note all our evening meals were taken in the many local restaraunts as we like to try local food . So can't rate Hotel evening meals .More

Lovely Hotel

Stayed here for a week from 5th March. Had a side sea view. This was beneficial as we were able to have the sun all afternoon. Made welcome from the moment we checked in.Found all staff very proffesional but, at the same time very friendly. Thought everything was excellent. If we visit the area again would stay here. Breakfast is great and sitting on the terrace during the lovely weather was a bonus. A bargain in the early evenings with offers on a cocktail and other drinks. Very pleasant having some entertainment in the evenings. We would like to express our thanks to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.More

Wonderful hotel but a few tweaks would make it even better

This hotel is in a glorious spot overlooking the sea and has an air of luxury. It left a bottle of bubbly in my room on my birthday, unprompted. It has lots of places to relax outside and chill out. We liked it and would return but feel the nearby Falesia Hotel, has the edge. The Porto Bay rooms are more modern and plush but the food and dining room at the Falesia are superior. The Porto Bay dining room had a canteen feel. Also, though many of the staff were hugely friendly, some of the bar staff seemed stern and unsmiling. The Falesia is 20 mins walk away from the Porto Bay and not so handy for the village of Olhos, so there are pros and cons with both. But if food is very important to you and a pleasant dining experience, then we recommend the Falesia. If looking out to sea and being close to Olhos and the beach matters more, then plump for the Porto Bay. In their own way, both are excellent. We love Olhos and have visited it eight times in four years. Finally, thanks to Raquel, the animations host, for her aqua aerobics and Portuguese lesson.More


Great Hotel and amazing location

Great Hotel in the most amazing location. After the a little hitch on arrival when i found that a tour operator had booked me in to a side sea view, which was a room that looked out onto a car park and you had to lean right over the balcony to see the sea. The hotel staff were understanding and told me i could upgrade to a front sea view room for 8 euro. So well worth the money and its just a shame the tour operator doesn't know the hotel well. Lovely pool and seating areas with nice outside bar area and stunning terrace they looks out to over the cliffs and out to sea. My favourite spot was the large loungers that looked right out over the beach and sea, although you did need to get there early to get a sun lounger. I was booked on Spa weekend so had some great beauty treatments. Great room, very clean, and very very comfy bed which is a must for me. I think the only negative about this Hotel was the dining room and although at breakfast it was adequate, at night it felt a bit like a school canteen. All in all a great stay and will definitely be back.More
