My husband and I returned last week from a week's holiday at the Falesia, a wonderful Adult Only hotel. This is a Thomson Gold hotel and we had booked a Junior Suite which was just perfect, our room (No.224) was very spacious with a separate seating area and balcony, extras included - kettle with drinks replenished daily including bottled water, a good sized fridge which proved very useful for keeping drinks cool, dressing gowns, slippers and room safe, there was plenty of wardrobe and drawer spaces. The hotel is maintained to a very high standard and all the staff are very pleasant and will go out of their way to assist you. The food is very good with meals served buffet style and themed nights, the selection is huge with choices to suit everyone's taste. Restaurant and bar service were exceptional.
The swimming pool is super and there are ample sunbeds. The hotel grounds are beautiful with well kept garden areas as well as ponds with fish and frogs. There was however a shortage of parasols as we requested one but were told that they had all been distributed (we counted only approx. 8 parasols).
The entertainment team work very hard and have varied activities, they were extremely friendly but never pushy. The evening shows were very professional especially 'The Bottles' (Beatles Tribute Band) and a Tina Turner Tribute act - these were some of the best shows we have seen, the resident duo were also very good with a varied repertoire.
The hotel runs a courtesy bus to the beach (approx. 4 times daily). You can also book the bus to visit either Albefeira or Villemoura for a very reasonable fare from the hotel.
My only niggles were: (1) The rooms needed updating especially the bathroom, even though the rooms were extremely clean, some of the bathroom wall tiles in our room were cracked and the basin and bath taps were discoloured - they looked very tired and in need of modernising. (2) The electric sockets were not close to any mirrors therefore awkward when drying/straightening hair.
I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday with very good food. We will definitely return.
