Why We Love This Hotel

  • Good-value resort near Albufeira with sea views & lush gardens
  • Direct access to one of the nicest beaches in the Algarve
  • Lots of facilities on site, including indoor & outdoor pools, a spa & tennis courts
  • Good option for families


Surrounded by pine trees, the Porto Bay Falesia is a good-value pick with picturesque sea views, direct beach access and child-friendly facilities. The hotel is near the traditional fishing village of Olhos d'Água, 15 minutes’ drive east of Albufeira in the “slightly quieter, more upmarket part of town” (Fodor’s). It’s around half an hour from Faro, and the golf courses and expansive marina in Vilamoura are 20 minutes away by car, or a 4-mile stroll along the beach.

Hidden in the hotel’s lush gardens lie two tennis courts, a putting green and a petanque course with equipment available to hire (extra charge applies). The golden sands of Praia da Falesia are just a short walk from the heart of the resort, accessed via a flight of stairs near the putting green. Protected by terracotta-coloured cliffs, it’s one of the nicest beaches on this stretch of coast, with waves suitable for amateur surfers. An outdoor playground, children’s pool and games room keep the kids entertained, and the resort hosts ‘mini discos’ for younger guests in the summer months.

Spend the day lazing by the free-form pool, where light meals and ice creams are served until 6pm. The hotel also has a gym and a small spa with treatment rooms, a Turkish bath, sauna, Jacuzzi and an indoor pool, which is heated to 28°C all year round (open 8am-8pm). In the evenings, there’s a choice of a themed international buffet or Italian dishes from an à la carte menu, accompanied by live Brazilian music in the summer. A large buffet spread is served at breakfast, and omelettes and made-to-order espressos are also available (extra charge applies).

The bedrooms are comfortable, with a classic design, marble-finished bathrooms, and balconies (the best with sea views). Upgrade to a Junior Suite for more space in the form of an adjoining sitting room. Wi-Fi is available in the rooms for a supplement, and is accessible for free in the lobby. There’s also a computer terminal in the games room for free internet access and printing.
