Reviewed 6 May 2014

We stayed here 3 years ago and this visit was just as good. The hotel was always peaceful and quiet which creates a very relaxing environment.
The rooms are a good size with plenty of storage space and are cleaned thoroughly every day. We had a couple of hot days when we stayed in mid April but the air conditioning in our room was available and was quietly efficient.
The dining room is a haven of peace as the buffet is in a separate area set off the main dining area so you dont get queues of people near to your table. The head chef (who was there 3 years ago) is always willing to recommend a dish and we usually took his advice. Having said that all the food was delicious and there was a huge variety.
The staff spoke to you whenever you met tham around the hotel and would share a laugh and joke when they were not too busy. The bar and lounge area are comfortable and the staff in there are attentive and helpful. The grounds and pool area are clean and well maintained.
The only disappointment for us was that the entertainment does not now start until May. The last time we went in April there was a Thomson Gold entertainment team in house and the lounge was very lively in the evenings. However it did mean that I managed to read the pile of books that have been mounting for the last couple of months! We are already looking at prices to return here next year.

Stayed here for a short break in mid April. Our first visit was about 5 years ago and were interested to see if the hotel had changed at all. Pleased to say we found it still just as good. On arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite which was spacious and clean. Food still very good with a good variety and Chef and his staff were always on hand to offer any help. We must give a special mention to the bread and butter pudding - one of the gastronomic highlights of our stay. All the staff are friendly, reception staff, bar staff and the restaurant staff. Pool and grounds were well kept. Loved our morning stroll around the ponds just to listen to the frog chorus. The entertainment wasn't great but hoping for better when we stay in May after the start of the Thompson Gold programme.

This was our second visit, it was the same as last time, we couldn't fault anything.
A warm welcome on arrival, excellent food and comfortable surroundings,
We went in March like last time we got fresh oranges from a stall at the side of the orchard,
The head chef even remembered us.

My wife and I have visited this hotel on several occasions over the years, but due to circumstances not for two years. On arrival at reception we were greeted by smiling, enthusiastic staff and this set the seal for the whole of the holiday a complimentary glass of wine also helped to smooth the tedium of booking in. This hotel is immaculate, spotlessly clean and the gardens surrounding the pool beautiful. The food is plentiful and of an exceptional quality and there is enough variety to suit the most pernicitty person. In the restaurant you are always greeted with smiling and willing staff nothing being too much trouble. It has to be said that this hotel does cater for let me say, the more mature person as it is adults only. Younger visitors seemed to be more than satisfied however. I could go on but suffice to say if you want a relaxing vacation and to feel spoiled you won`t be dissapointed.

Our second stay and it will not be our last, staff,food& accommodation all excellent. It was 5yrs ago when we first stayed at the Falesia and could not get over the Head Chef remembering us!, although the Thomson reps don't start till the 1stMay it did not stop us enjoying ourselves, it's such a relaxing hotel & resort, cannot fault it in anyway. As one of the waiters kept saying ' I'll be back' we sure will!!

Room Tip: if you want a quiet room the top floors facing the gardens are the best
