“Please take no notice of the bad reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I just had to write this after reading a particularly bad review on this site. We have been going Thomson Gold for quite a few years now and although the hotel is a little worn it is the best one we have visited. Andre and his staff cannot do enough for you. Any little niggles and they are sorted in record time. Angelo the chef and his staff (and food) are second to none. We visited first August 2012 for two weeks, last year we went back but due to an earlier holiday being extended only for 10 days. What a mistake we should have had a week for the first holiday and two at the Falesia. This year we have booked again (for two weeks!) and I can assure anyone who is reading this that we would not be going back again if this wasn't a first class hotel. We have been to some beautiful modern hotels which we would return to but none as friendly as the Falesia. Can't wait till August 21st. We will be back Armen!. Angi and Pete

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.

Room Tip: Pool rooms cost more and the view from the front of the hotel is actually very nice so recommend tho...

Our 6th visit to this Hotel and never disappointed. Excellent hotel in every way, friendly efficient staff who cant do enough for you, always immaculately clean everywhere and superb food with excellent choice in all courses every day. Since our last visit 2 years ago a few small improvements (which we thought not possible) including glass of wine on arrival, reduced prices in bar etc. Thomson entertainment team and resort rep also the best this time we have had for several years. Overall a wonderfull holiday to celebrate our Anniversary. We will be back !

What a holiday.
Fantastic and modern hotel with a very friendly staff.
Quiet near to shops, walking distance, and just 5 minutes in taxi to nearest town,albeferia.
I need to refer the taxi company from the airport. Yellow fish taxis. Excellent service with free wifi on the vehicle. Very prompt. Highly recommended

Excellent service, accommodation and food. Well located for a variety of beaches and local shops. Our only suggestion would be to have one staircase open as not everybody likes lifts. Would most certainly stay again..

Stayed at the Falesia again in October,(our second home) although the weather wasn't too good, but it didn't matter as the hotel made up for it. Fantastic service from every single member of staff, nothing is ever too much trouble for any of them, Andre the Manager has a brilliant team, who all work extremely hard, the Thomson team of Dan, Dan, Martin, Hannah and Lucy did a fab job once again and it was quite an emotional goodbye when we all came to leave, they are all so talented and we wish them well in the future, if Thomsons would like to allocate them all to be a Team again next year at the Falesia it would make a lot of people very happy!!! We cant say enough about this hotel, FAB FAB FAB. Roll on next year. We would go every 2 months if we could. Yvonne and Steve Holmes

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, depends if you want to upgrade and pay extra for a pool view.
