We stayed at the Hotel Falesia between 4th and 18th October. It was on a half board basis. The fridge in the room was very small and quite expensive €40 for two weeks, the safe was €35 for two weeks. The lunch time meals were quite expensive and the wine was also very expensive (cheapest bottle was €12.50). Our room (205) was on the second floor and overlooked the pool. The television was modern and we had several English channels, i.e. BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Sky News, CNN, etc..
As it was an adults only hotel there were plenty of sunbeds either in the gardens or by the pool. The breakfast was superb, with a cooked breakfast (including bacon, hashbrowns, beans, tomatoes, toast, fruit, etc. The sausages were excellent, not the usual frankfurter type. Beware of the toast machine, only put the bread in once, if you put it in twice it catches fire. The only complaint is they only do orange juice and iced water. In the evening the meals were very good. There was a large choice of salad, a variation of cooked meats and cold meats, fish, etc., with a selection of vegetables. On one Thursday there were oysters, prawns and sardines. There was plenty of fresh fruit and also a large selection of desserts and ice cream.
There was happy hour every day (except Wednesday) between 5.00 and 6.00, the cocktails were €3.5. There were always queues as it was very popular.
The indoor swimming pool was very clean, the Jacuzzi was a bit small, but enough for two people to sit in. The Turkish bath was very good. The good thing about this was hardly any one used them.
On the whole we really enjoyed our hotel. It is off the beaten track there was no traffic noise. There are two supermarkets near by and also several cafes and bars within walking distance. We tried Tania’s which did very good pizzas and also Sardines, and they did not mind us sharing. Also there is a Chinese restaurant close by. On the few occasions we tried the Brothers Bar (which is next door to the supermarket), it was shut.
We would definitely return.
