Our first view of the Falesia Hotel was not particularly impressive. However, once inside this lovely hotel we couldn't fault it. The staff were amazing. The food fabulous! Everyone did their best to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable and linen and towels changed regularly. We were made to feel very welcome by ALL staff, from reception to bar staff and waiting staff. The quality and variety of foods on offer was outstanding... we certainly never went hungry! The Thomson Rep (Lauren) was friendly and helpful. We chose a Thomson Gold holiday to ensure a peaceful holiday with other likeminded adults and we would definitely recommend it. Would we recommend this hotel - definitely!

Third visit to Falesia hotel , it just gets better. It may need a little updating in the bedrooms, but clean and very comfortable. Had a wonderful time and met lots of great people. Did not bother much with entertainment in the evening, as we like to get out. The best part is the dining room, service, food and atmosphere great. Hope to go back sometime soon.

Have recently returned from a week here. Wonderful that when we arrived at 9am we were allowed straight into our room. Everything clean with good daily maid service and a good view over the pool. Bathroom a little tired but appreciated having both a bath and shower. Comfortable beds and a proper mattress for the third bed in the room. Very good food selection, you could press your own fresh oranges for breakfast and use up left over champagne from the night before. Plenty of choice. The outdoor pool is beautiful but cold, the indoor one slightly warmer. Nice and quiet. Thompson team all worked very hard and were very good looking and talented. The shows were slightly twee. Didn't like the music of the resident duo Obsession but they were friendly enough. Pity the grand piano is not used more. Useful table where you could swap books and left over lotions. Disappointing that you had to pay extra for the safe and fridge. There was a free pool towel service. Plenty of space and sunbeds around the pool and gardens. Great bar service. All the staff friendly and helpful. Easy enough to get to the beautiful beach if you are able bodied, from previous reviews I was dreading it but it was fine; there are wide wooden steps and places to stop. One umbrella and 2 sunbeds for 12 euros. Can either take hotel shuttle bus then walk down or walk through hotel next door. Hotel buses to nearby towns are easy to use and the local guide is very friendly. Had a very happy holiday here.

This hotel will not disappoint. From the fantastic food, to the wonderful staff, to the great rooms, to the good entertainment, to the fabulous surroundings. Only thing I would note is that this hotel is ISOLATED! Perfect for chilling and relaxing; not good if you like to dander down the streets and see the area. However, good trips were provided and a free shuttle bus to the beach as the beach is a 30minute walk away.

Room Tip: Pool view is necessary!

My wife and I spent a week in this hotel in late July 2012 and were very pleased with our choice.
The rooms were clean and well looked after,the reception staff were friendly and very helpful and the restaurant staff and food were exceptional.
On arrival we were given a room that overlooked the car park and when I asked if we could change we were given a different room that looked onto the swimming pool-result !
We booked this hotel because its adults only and were very happy that is was fairly quiet almost all the time-nice and relaxing.
The food was superb,masses of choice and excellent quality,the only drawback was the weight I gained during our stay.
We had a hire car and there was always plenty of parking spaces.
The only thing wrong with this hotel is its location,its about half way between Albufeira and Vilamoura and it seemed to ages to get to the main road when we were going out and about.
All in all we had a fantastic stay,no complaints at all and if booking a holiday in this area again would definitely consider staying there again.

We have just returned from the Hotel Falesia, what a lovely hotel. The staff are very friendly and polite, the hotel is very clean and nothing is too much trouble.
The Thomson team work very hard and the Thomson Rep Lauren (cinders) is very knowledgable about the area.
Angelo the chef always provided us with great food every day, the menu was on a 3 weekly turn over you never got the same meal twice unless you stayed for more than 3 weeks.
The grounds are beautiful and the pool area very wheelchair accessible. The pool bar and show lounge were always lovely and the staff that ran these were always smiling. Happy hour - buy one get one free was a must and lovely. I really enjoyed trying the cocktails.
what an absolutely lovely hotel! If you go there you will not be disappointed. plenty of sunbeds, although the mentality of some were to save them dispite being plenty and then they would go out for the day on a trip! Selfish!!!

Room Tip: The room was excellent, we over looked the pool and it was very quiet at night, lovely
