Where do I start! All the negative reviews I read before leaving was a worry, either these people are fussy or very unlucky.
From the moment we were greeted in reception with a glass of champagne to book in all the staff were so helpful & pleasant.
We were in Room 2108 for our 10 days & what a room & view.
The huge comfortable bed,large walk in shower & bathroom & fantastic views of the Atlantic.
We upgraded to all inclusive at reception which you can do at any point of you stay for your duration at €20 PPPN this includes lunch & drinks plus snack bar & ice creams.
The food choice in the restaurant was amazing at lunch at least 7 different hot dishes + the freshly cooked to order pasta/pizza station.
At dinner 17 different choices plus pasta station as at lunch.
The waiter staff in the restaurant couldn't have been more helpful & efficient.
Lovely seating area to eat outside but can get busy at times.
The pool area was excellent, no rushing for sun beds these could be found at anytime of the day. The pool can seem cold the first time but you get accustomed to it.
The hotel is set on a cliff edge so a great number of steps down to the beach but is worth it.
The only negative thing I can find to say about is the towels in the bathroom are a bit thin compared to the beach towels they supply for you to use, which can be replaced daily at the life guards point between 10-1pm
We would like to thank all the staff for a fantastic relaxing holiday.

We arrived to a lovely glass of sparkling wine and our cases were taken from us and brought up to our room! The room we had was a superior room with limited sea view. It was enormous. It had a long corridor that lead to another which lead to the bedroom and bathroom!! Amazing!! They were modern and beautifully clean. The bathroom had a double sink and huge shower. I can't explain how big the bed was!! We had a balcony and being all inclusive there was a mini bar that was stocked regular with cans of fizzy drinks and water. The pool was lovely and there was an outdoor Jacuzzi too. It was very peaceful and we also hired the Balinese Bed for the day which was pure luxury. There was a large selection of food at breakfast, lunch and dinner and a pool bar that had snacks all day also so there was always plenty of choice for even the fussiest eater (such as myself). Drinks are available all day (little tip for all inclusive - look at the drinks menu and read the drinks that say ALL - not all the drinks are included some will be charged e.g if you want Malibu and coke ask for rum and coke or if you want Smirnoff and lemonade ask for vodka and lemonade) Some cocktails are included and are very nice so give them a try. If you are after a busy hotel with lots of noisy entertainment this hotel isn't for you however if you want pure relaxation and to be looked after by caring and wonderful staff and to come home feeling rejuvenated. There are themed nights e.g A Gala night, A White party etc so its a bit more lively but overall most nights there are different forms of entertainment. (I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return!!! If I can persuade my mom to have our children again as this was our honeymoon lol)

You are on the sea front however you are on a cliff so you have to walk down some steps. Be warned there are a lot but you walk down some and can walk up some different ones. The view is spectacular!! On the way down there are lots of benches to rest and take some photos and I have a health condition myself and struggle with walking but did manage it.

Overall the hotel is just amazing and was very sad to leave so can't wait in the future to return!!!

Thank you Sensimar Falesia for giving us an amazing experience and we hope to see you very soon!!!!

Lovely hotel, well maintained with great big huge comfy beds!! Good selection of food in both the morning and the evening however I wouldn't really recommend staying at the hotel after eating as the evening entertainment is not good at all! With regards to eating you MUST eat at the A La Carte place because the food is amazing! Great service, great food and great location. Also loved that this is a Kids Free hotel, perfect!

One small niggle I would have with the hotel is the lack of a pool bar (for drinks and snacks). I really missed this option while staying here, I didn't actually realise I used them so much :)

With regards to location, this place is very good, it's only a short 10 minute walk into town (why they have not built steps down to the town instead of going all the way round is beyond me). Its also very close to two beaches however BE WARNED, the beaches are both at the bottom of a lot of stairs but well worth a visit.

Room Tip: One overlooking the pool with sea views (3096)

The hotel was excellent, clean and well maintained. The bed was enormous and very comfortable. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Fabulous food, couldn't fault it, plenty of choice. Plenty of activities but no pressure to take part. Only one niggle- in the evening the smokers tended to sit outside so there wasn't anywhere to sit there without being next to the smell and smoke. A smoke free area is needed. Great location for near-by small town and beaches; taxis and buses nearby.

Stayed previously when hotel was RIU Palace, food standards have declined since that time, and entertainment was poor. Gold hotels have far superior entertainment and cost less than Sensimar, which should at least be equal or better. Hotel needs to create access from its western side down into the local town area.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking your time in posting your review of Sensimar Falesia.

I am afraid I was not informed about your concerns on time during your stay, I am pretty sure that I could have assisted you the way that you deserve.

Regarding to the path to the town, I am sorry to inform that due to our unique location on top of the cliff, we are surrounded by a natural reserve that we must respect, and we hope it continues like that for many many years.

Kind regards,
Javier R
