Had a short break end of March, it rained every day but the beauty of the Falesia is that that there is always somewhere to go in the hotel. It was out of "Thomson" season but that does not matter here other than the evening entertainment. Met a lovely couple from Montreal in Hugo's bar, with the French Canadians it is interesting to meet them. The hotel is lovely, clean, bright and the staff are really great. The quality and choice of the food here is outstanding. See you soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th. floor for views.

We spent a week at the Falesia in April, taking in the Easter weekend. This was our 4th visit and it was just as we remembered it. Outside the Thomson Gold times the Hotel is quieter and had low key evening entertainment, and if you want a truly relaxing chill out time then it is perfect. The rooms (especially the Junior Suites) are roomy, comfortable, clean and well equipped. The food is excellent - plenty of choice and lovely fresh salads and fruit. The staff throughout the hotel are friendly and do a fabulous job of making your holiday a great one. Equally we have been when the Hotel is `Gold`when there is lots to do and the Reps work hard to entertain. We will certainly be returning to a little gem of a hotel.

Room Tip: Garden rooms nice and quiet.

Hotel staff very friendly and efficient. Good choice of food,buffet breakfast and dinner. Great size rooms and v clean. Nice large pool and due to mainly older guests was quiet & relaxing. No gym which hubbie disappointed about. Indoor pool, jacuzzi and steam room.
Surrounding area is quiet, we hired a car and drove to Vilamoura and Albuferia for variety..
Would recommend if looking for quiet relaxing get away.

Returned home on 15th May after a wonderful week at this hotel, our fourth visit in 8 years. A great improvement in the standard of food, the staff are very friendly and cheerful (watch out for Armen, the waiter) and the room was spotless, overlooking the outdoor pool. Clientele mainly British, so no problems with sun beds. The entertainment was certainly not Thomson GOLD standard, with three young staff in their early twenties trying their best to entertain, but fortunately the resident duo, SOPHISTICATION, were brilliant and deserved of their forthcoming, and past cruise ship entertainment. As mentioned by previous guests, there is very little to do within the vicinity of this hotel, the beach is a 30 minute walk away (Falesia beach), but free hotel transport is available 4 times per day. Albufeira can be reached by public transport (bus stop 200 yards from hotel) or by hotel minibus for 5 Euros return per person, highly recommended. If you want a room with sun on the balcony, then upgrade to a pool view room. As stated earlier, this excellent hotel is remote and sited in the wrong place.

Room Tip: Pool view room with balcony for all day sunshine.

Just returned from Falesia Hotel what a wonderful place to stay, cannot fault anything. The staff the rooms and food were all excellent. Stayed in a junior suite which we were upgraded to as we booked the romantic package. The choice of food at both breakfast and dinner is amazing everyone should find something to their liking. The atmosphere is relaxed, quiet and friendly if your looking for a relaxing holiday this is the place for you. Will be returning in autumn. There are a few bars cafés and supermarkets just down the road, bus stop just a few minutes walk away but taxis are just as cheap. Cannot wait to return

Room Tip: Stayed in a room overlooking the car park which was really quiet, would request this again

I heartily endorse the excellent reviews on here. The Hotel's architecture, setting, grounds and gardens, poolside etc are 1st class. In particular my wife and I liked the greenery, birds, frogs and pond life. The food, staff helpfulness and overall atmosphere all contributed to an excellent week's holiday..
Minor quibbles are:-
1.The entertainment was pretty dire with a group of young, inexperienced staff failing to hit the right notes for an elderly clientele of mainly 60 and 70 year olds.They need some guidance, help and effective mentoring.
2. Only 1 British TV channel (Sky news) amongst 16 channels on bedroom TVs is scandalously few for a largely British customer base. We could in additionexpect at least one BBC channel plus one ITV channel.
3. It is penny pinching to charge for room safe, fridge and kettles in this a luxury hotel with prices to match.
Notwithstanding it is likely that we will pay a return visit, repeat purchases demonstrate genuine customer satisfaction.
