Reviewed May 21, 2013

This really is a brilliant Hotel, Rooms AI ,FOOD A1, Staff A1, But ,and a BIG but, the BAR prices are OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive, as is WI-FI, go down the road,its free in most Bars,and on a purely personal moan, the Hill coming back at,night can be a killer,(if you have had a few)

Thank you very much for your comments. We do have same Bar prices since the opening 5 years ago, last year there was an increase of taxes from 13% to 23% and the hotel assumed the difference, however we can't help on currency exchange rates euro/pound. Next stay you will have due to our Prestige Card affiliation 50% reduction on Wi-Fi and 10% on food & beverage. Looking forward to welcome you back at the Porto Bay Falésia. Best regards.

Not for me. Perhaps i should of done more research. I found the Hotel to be to far from Albuferia. There was not much In Olas d Aqua. Weather not very good, not hotels fault. As room at back when the sun did shine did not see it, so room was dark, not very warm. Loved Albuferia old town. If i do return will stay there.

Room Tip: Try and choose a room at front of hotel.

We visited this hotel for the second time this year and it is still as good as ever. The staff are friendly, the hotel is spotlessly clean and the breakfast has all anyone could want. Thank you Porto Bay Falesia.

We stayed here in early May and our choice was based on overwhelmingly positive reviews of this hotel - happy to say none were exaggerated. Staff, facilities, food selection, location, ocean view - everything was first class. Breakfast deserves a special mention. Our 4 year old son particularly enjoyed the indoor spa area and walks to the beach. The hotel overlooks probably the most beautiful beach we've seen on the whole southern coast of Portugal - and the walk downhill is not as long as it may seem at first glance.

Stayed here for 4 nights in May. Was able to check in early, straight to our good size and clean room. Bed was really good, and room had decent selection of TV channels. The hotel's setting is lovely, with cliff top views and many different places to relax (eg. near pool, on nice lawn/garden, on cliff terraces etc). Was a 5-7 min walk to lovely beach, although the ocean water took a bit to get used to as its quite cold at this time of year. The hotel pool was slightly warmer temp, but still a bit cold. Breakfast was really good with something for everyone. Didn't try dinner as we went into the town each night to the local family run type restaurants. Would definitely recommend.

this place is well worth putting on your to do list. great hotel, staff and stunning location. ignore any previous gripes as everything here is first class. staff are always helpful throughout the hotel and the array of different foods at breakfast means no one should go hungry and it;s constantly being refreshed. don;t hesitate just book it.

Room Tip: high floor rooms offer quiet and a good view
