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 2 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.

Excellent hotel for a 3*** superior hotel! Not 4**** like they say

Good room prices (Trivago app), good breakfast, very clean rooms and comfy beds; good pool, magnificent views by the bay (worth the money) excellent for relaxation. Very nice and kind personal. Above average fitness club / gym No free Wi-fi; Eating buffet not so expensive (22€/person - but can eat much better outside); expensive bar drinks; difficult access to the beach (many stairs); If it wasn't for the spa thing - that it isn't nothing much -, i would classify it a 3*** stars superior hotel. But the bay view.. is something else. I recommend it!More

Nice location

Just back from a week at this cliff top hotel. The reception staff are very helpful and polite. The rooms are ok and the cleaners generally do a good job in keeping the place clean and tidy. The standard of food at breakfast and dinner is average,the restaurant can get crowded and frantic at times and the tables are far too close together for comfort. Waiters hovering to take your plate as soon as you put down your knife and fork is a practice that grates after a few visits and you get the feeling they want you out ASAP. Also the waiting staff could have been more welcoming and friendly,an occasional smile would not be amiss. The hotel itself enjoys a nice location, spending time on the lovely beach a short downhill walk away was definitely the highlight our holiday.More

Relaxing hotel and good location

Room good, breakfast good, pool good, most of the staff good (the waiters at breakfast seemed a bit tetchy). The location is ideal - close to some good restaurants and right on top of a glorious beach.More

My 3rd visit

Our 3rd visit to this hotel so that says it all. We booked through Thomsons the only disadvantage this year was that we couldn't book a sea view. Our past two trips were in June but the October trip this year saw the hotel slightly busier than we were used too but still that didn't spoil anything. It is a lovely clean hotel with very polite and friendly helpful staff especially the very hard working catering team. On my arrival I noticed the A/C in our room wasn't up to much and after a chat with reception a guy was up there within a few minutes and changed a blocked filter and fixed it, great service! I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I would defo go back in another couple of years. As a return visitor I had a Prestige card which gave me discount on food and drink. the only one drawback I would mention would be fellow guests that need to go a months long course on how to open and close doors without slamming them! Another thing I have just remembered is the free shuttle to the shopping centre nothing to do with the hotel but beware you may get the shuttle there but get stung for a taxi back because the shuttle is full.More
