Reviewed 13 August 2014

Just returned from a lovely stay in Porto Bay Falesia. Really enjoyed the various quiet places to sit and read or just ponder, the views were spectacular.
We treated ourselves to a sea view which was very pleasant and although facing the pool it was also quiet. We also got free wifi on the balcony.
We went B&B and bought some vouchers to eat in the hotel as well as trying some of the Italian restaurants nearby. It was cheaper to eat out. All the meals we had were of a very good standard. Breakfast had plenty of choice and all the fresh fruit was great, very easy to achieve 10 a day or more.
We went to Albufeira twice by bus which was easy but times were not too accurate, 9 euros return for 2 of us. We went on Dolphins driven excursion which was brilliant, lovely caves and then plenty of dolphins swimming around our boat.

Room Tip: We asked for a sea view and quite high. Got the third floor and absolutely fine.

Beautiful hotel. Stayed for 2 nights. Choose a room with an ocean view. My room was on the 2nd floor with view overlooking pool and ocean and it was great (see photo). The room was small but very clean and very functional. The beds and linens were very comfortable and I slept like a baby even though the room was right above the disco (I always bring ear plugs when I travel just in case...). The food and drinks delicious. The live music just the right touch and the staff, well... just wonderful.

Late check out was not possible as they were fully booked but they were very accommodating by offering use of towel as well as changing rooms and showers in the spa in the late day of my departure... The neighboring area has gift shops, bars, restaurants etc. and the old town of Albufeira is about 8 kms away (go visit, it's worth it). I recommend this hotel for its beautiful vistas, wonderful pool, amazing beach, staff, and yes for a good night's sleep. Hope you like the pictures and get a chance to visit for yourself. It was hard leaving... just saying !

Room Tip: Get an ocean and pool view room

A beautiful hotel in an amazing setting. Taxi ride to bustling Albuferia 10 euro, bus buses nearby and frequent. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. The room and hotel are spotless and beautifully presented. We never had to look far for a sun lounger and there are lots of quiet places in the grounds to relax and enjoy the weather and beautiful landscape. We were half board and the food was great - lots of variety and good quality. While the hotel is outside busy Albuferia and Villamoura we found bus and taxi access easy and relatively cheap. Definitely try the cave boat trip from Abuferia marina - 3 hours along one of the most beautiful coastlines. Near the hotel there are a few nice bars. Try Wee Molly's or Cabana cocktail bar. Some local supermarkets and shops but a quiet little town - which we loved and found very relaxing.

I visited this hotel for the summer vacation and its normally quiet busy with many check ins.
When you select Porto Bay do not think grand.

The best part of this hotel is its access to the Falesia beach. The rooms are simple yet cosy with the necessary amenities and beds are comfortable. Breakfast has all you need with a selection of local fruits, cereals a hots selection and a good bread selection.

At night if you wish to go out it is close to Albufeira and not too far away from Vilamoura.

Outstanding, friendly service in this hotel. Even in high season, with the hotel full, there were few children and the atmosphere was calm and zen-like. It was never a problem to get seated at breakfast, nor to arrange a sunlounger in the pool or extended garden area. A lovely touch was the bottle of bubbly delivered to my room on my birthday... It's good to know someone really pays attention to the passports they photocopy! Highly recommended.

An absolute dream of a hotel. Great location next to the ocean, plenty of parking, a daily buffet with so many delicious choices, BBQ during the summer and an excellent a la carte restaurant. The room was all it claimde to be. There is free WiFi at the reception area, around the pool and at the cocktail bar. Speaking of which, do try some of the delicious cocktails. The staff is super friendly. I hope to come back one day.

Just returned from a 11 night stay. Paid extra for Sea View which is outstanding and well worth it. Fantastic buffet breakfast served until 10.30 which was good for our sleepy teens. Friendly and helpful staff.
Great beach just minutes away. Good bar service around a lovely pool. All in all delighted. Only minor downside was Wi-Fi which was free around the pool and lobby but 6 euros a day in the room - crazy!
