The Falesia hotel is a small simple hotel which will please those who want nothing more than relaxing near the pool and whose culinary and esthetical standards are not a vacation priority.

    Location 4.0 /10

    The Falesia is located 22 miles west of Faro international airport (a half hour by car). To reach it, take National Road EN 125 towards Albufeira. At Albufeira crossroad ( BP station service on the right), turn left. Go straight in Albufeira, towards Olhos d'Agua, then follow "Falesia Beach" sign. Turn left at "LTI-Alfamar" and "Sheraton Pine cliffs". The hotel is just after the Sheraton.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 169 rooms and suites can each accommodate up to 4 people. They are not large, 23 m² for the first ones, 33 m² for the second ones, but bright. The equipment is simple but the basics are there : individually controlled air conditioning, a small satellite television (14 channels), bathroom with bathtub, hairdryer and just a soap bar. A small balcony with a low table and two plastic chairs. There is a safe available for a fee at the reception; the minibars are only available in the suites. All units have a garden view.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The Falesia hotel, a T-shaped white building with three floors, welcomes the visitor through a large patio around which there are the rooms. Red columns, clear marble, massive plants and fountain. You will find yet the whole setting a little cold and somber despite the lights hanging from the ceiling. Back into the heat of the garden, nicely blooming with aromatic plants, peonies and daisies, and fitted out with rippling ponds. A large, pleasant bean-shaped swimming pool with rows of deckchairs under a large dais.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The main restaurant has a buffet only in the morning and in the evening. The international cuisine is simple and succinct. You will have the choice of dozens of salads and desserts, a meat dish and a fish dish. You will eat in a large air conditioned room without much character overlooking the parking area and the garden. A snack-bar has light dishes all day in the summer. There are also a piano-bar and a pool bar open in the high season.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The nearest beach is Praia da Falesia, 1.2 miles away. It can be reached in 5 minutes with the hotel shuttle or on foot in fifteen minutes through a nice path that is not always shaded. By passing through the pretty garden of Sheraton Pine Cliffs hotel, you will arrive at the beach section devoted to the 4 star hotel's clients. Surrounded by high ochre cliffs, this place is wonderful, pleasantly fitted out with deckchairs and sunshades, and there is a snack bar in high season (extra charge). Its crescent shaped configuration makes it a difficult area to access and so it is quite private. A small nautical base (activities extra) is open from April to October. Some will find the distance a little bit too long but the setting deserves this effort.

    To know

    We have not integrated an evaluation of the beach in our assesment of the hotel. Indeed, it is a 15 minute walk from the Falesia.
    The tourists are mostly German and English.

      The Algarve Club Med is the only club worthy of the name in the region. It is an institution with a true daily entertainment program. This sumptuous property on a cliff welcomes kids but they are not supervised.

      The sprawling Balaia Golf Village is a large apartment-resort with hotel facilities, however, the founders have made sure that unlike many of these types of resorts in the region, and emphasis is placed on the resort gardens. The beautiful and well-maintained laws and colourful blooming bougainvillea, help to break up the heavy concrete structure of the establishment. Calm and pleasant with fairly good quality accommodations, the Balaia Golf Village is ideal for golfers due to its various golfing ranges as well as families and large groups of friends just looking for somewhere to spend some quality time together.

      Alisios is just two steps away from the beach, so that you almost forget the absence of an outside swimming pool. With its facilities it is more suited to couples than families.

      • Location 6.0

      As soon as you enter Vila Joya's gates, the rest of the world just becomes a distant memory. Along with the Bela Vista in Portimao, the Vila Joya is the best hotel in the Algarve as far as luxury boutique hotels go. With an intimate setting and extremely high-end facilities, stunning views and direct access to its own private little beach cove, there is absolutely nothing to add to this lovely hotel. Located close to Albufeira in Praia Galé, this is the only place to stay during a holiday around Albufeira. Not really a place for children, but more of an adult haven of peace and tranquillity for spending quality time with your other half, the Vila Joya is the jewel in the Albufeira crown.
