Most travellers visiting Albufeira, a former fishing village in the central region of Algarve, Portugal, that has become one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in the country, often choose the best of the best and hardly give up until they find it.
Porto Bay Falesia is one of those accommodation paradises that will not disappoint you and will certainly help you recharge your batteries and enjoy your holiday in the lovely Algarve.
Porto Bay Falesia enjoys a unique setting in Olhos d’Água, a village near the old town of Albufeira, overlooking Falésia Beach and its kilometres of white sand stretching almost forever. In fact, guests have private access to the beach from the hotel.
The rooms are elegantly decorated with contemporary details and earthy tones, which will assure guests can relax and breathe in the tranquillity. The 310 rooms are divided into three categories: Junior Suites, Superior Rooms, and Standard Rooms, and each of them feature a different number of amenities that will guarantee your comfort and satisfaction throughout your holiday. Satellite TV with LCD screen, en-suite bathroom with bath products, kettle, balcony, occasional table and chair, and a few others that are subject to a charge, such as Wi-Fi, safe deposit box, and mini-bar.
Porto Bay Falesia offers a wonderful array of facilities, including an outdoor pool (502 m²), a heated indoor pool (49 m²) and outdoor children’s pool (12 m²), SPA with beauty treatments, Jacuzzi, sauna, two tennis courts, gym, games room, and playground. Beach towels are provided for free and services as baby-sitting, rent-a-car, Wi-Fi access and golf green fee are available for a surcharge.
Relish in a tasty breakfast buffet inside or in the al fresco area if the weather allows it, which includes a lovely selection of bread, croissants, freshly squeezed orange juice, cold meats, cheeses, jams, salmon, and the list goes on and on.
Due to the location of Porto Bay Falesia, it is quite easy to set off and explore the surrounding area of Olhos d’Água, where you can find lots of local shops, cafés, and restaurants, making up for a great opportunity to discover local dishes and the Algarve’s gastronomy at lunch.
For dinner, step up onto one of the amazing restaurants in the hotel and just make your pick: first you have Restaurant Madeira, the place to be if you enjoy daily-themed buffet dinners with a cooking show.
On the other hand, if you are in the mood for a more refined space, head up to Il Basilico, a smaller venue boasting an à la carte menu prepared by chef Ricardo Brito with Italian-based flavours doing the honours: Tagliatelle del Bosco, Tortelloni Ricotta e Spinaci, Gnocchi di Gorgonzola e Noci and Filetto de Manzo al Funghi Porcini con Parmigiana di Melanzane are a few of the delicious dishes.
Búzios Lounge Bar is the perfect rendezvous to taste your favourite cocktail while enjoying the sunset and make the best of the end of your day and, of course, Bar Falésia gives you the chance to have a light meal with your family accompanied by an afternoon tea or a freshly squeezed juice as you listen to the sound of waves and birds coming from the terrace.
All in all, Albufeira is a wonderful city to be explored, from the old town and far-reaching beaches to a lively nightlife.
