Have just returned having spent 11 nights at the Falesia. I travelled with my wife and 2 sons (21,18); we had a thoroughly entertaining and relaxing holiday. The hotel and Thomson team were excellent. We arrived early from the UK, were greeted by a thoroughly efficient hotel team who provided accommodation as early as 1030am. There was a really good mix of customers; young and old, it certainly did not feel like a retirement home which many people put within their reviews!
The food and entire restaurant team was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. It was a pleasure to walk out at 0930am and be able to place our towels on many vacant sun beds. The grounds are beautiful with the gardens offering a good place to retreat from if you want some quiet time. The pool was not cold, and never packed with customers allowing plenty of space to swim. The indoor pool, jacuzzi and Turkish bath adds value. A small gym and the tennis courts converted into a football pitch would be better!
The Thomson team work hard; both front of house and the entertainment team who are on hand 24/7 to look after the customer.
The rooms do require updating and in particular the bathrooms which are poor! The beach is a walk, but worth the walk or the hotel provides a bus service 4 times each day. Its clean, safe and stunning.
Breakfast (full menu) was provided from 0615am for customers departing early, this is the first hotel i have known to provide this service.
I will certainly return to the Falesia, it provides a holiday destination which can be as relaxing or as busy as you want to make it; a very good holiday - thank you.
