My partner and I stayed at the Falesia twice in 2013 and have already booked up again for this summer. We loved the ambience of the hotel, the friendly staff, fantastic food and great location plus this hotel surely cannot be beaten on price.
The hotel is roughly 25 mins west of Faro airport and we travelled by coach as part of the Thomson package. Luckily the Falesia was the first drop off for the coaches which is good.
We were greeted with a glass of champagne/orange juice and easily checked in. We recommend opening a tab with your credit card at the beginning of your stay, in case you want a drink or lunch without having to carry cash, especially useful when lounging round the pool!
Also worth asking for the mini fridge to be opened, doesn't cost much €2.50/day i think, and is a must have on a hot day for storing water.
The breakfast and dinners are included in the price and served in the spacious restaurant by the lovely chef and his staff and the restaurant staff. Cannot possibly go hungry even for the fussiest eaters!
Wonderful spa available next to the indoor pool, I only truly appreciated just how lovely it was when I went to a UK spa when I got home!!
The outdoor pool was very cool but enjoyable on a hot day.
The hotel runs a free shuttle bus to the beach which is good if you dont fancy the 10/15 min walk, which is quite easy anyway using the next doors hotel beach lift.
The hotel also offers bus trips to Albufeira and Vilamoura for little cost, certainly couldnt get a taxi cheaper to Albufeira!!!
All in all, we cannot wait to return and recommend the hotel to all our friends.
