Travellers' Choice
The hotel stands overlooking Praia da Falesia in the charming town of Olhos de Agua, close to Albufeira in the Algarve. Surrounded by abundant green areas, the hotel enjoys direct access to the sea and the exceptional 8km long beach which is washed by the clear, calm waters of the Algarve sea. After a refreshing drink at the waters edge, a reviving plunge in one of the pools, a trip to the beach, a game of tennis or an invigorating massage, sit back and enjoy one of the Algarves most beautiful views from one of the hotel's restaurants. Make the most of your holidays to relax.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Portobay Fielsa. Location The resort is in a fabulous location - up on the cliff you get stunning views of the beach and the hotel has used that fact well, with plenty of lounge areas and a restaurant overlooking the sea. outside the resort there are plenty of cafes, shops, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance and the Olhos de Agua beach (which we preferred) is also close by and has some great restaurants on it as well. The main beach is very long and good for walking and swimming and there is also a track along the top of the cliffs a bit further along which is good for mountain biking and walking for more amazing views. we walked all the way to Vilamoura Marina along this track (about 4.5 miles) which is well worth a visit. 5/5 Room The room was really spacious and modern. The bed was comfortable and includes a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. The beds are two single beds pushed together which I'm not a massive fan of. Balcony was ok, not a great view from our room (over the car park) but maybe we got a cheaper room because of it I'm not sure. The room was cleaned daily and you could tell the hotel when you wanted sheets and towels changed 4.5/5 Bathroom Bathroom was again nice and spacious, had everything you expect and the shower was warm and powerful. The bathroom looked a bit tired so maybe could do with a bit of a refurb but it didn't affect its use or our enjoyment. 4/5 Food The food was moderately expensive but very tasty. Breakfast was included and a great buffet selection including hot food, continental, fruit, smoothies, eggs cooked to order etc. lovely dining room in an outside conservatory with views of the pool. We had the evening buffet menu once which again had a great choice and ‘live’ cooking areas for certain foods. I assume the selection varies each day but we went out to restaurants the rest of the time. We also used the a la carte restaurant one night which is recommended as the food and the view were superb. We also had lunch regularly at the poolside restaurant and again the food lovely. You can also get drinks through the day and ice creams from there 5/5 Pool The pool is fabulous, really long which is great for swimming lengths and large enough that it never felt crowded. There is a separate baby pool as well. Water was a bit chilly at first but when swimming the temp was perfect and it was kept very clean throughout our stay. 5/5 Pool area/grounds The area around the pool was spacious and had plenty of loungers. Staff delivered drinks to your lounger when ordered which was nice and if you caught one to and from a delivery you could order with them too which we enjoyed. The grounds are all very neat and tidy and has some excellent areas for changes of scenery or if you wanted shade or to sit in a grassed area instead of on the tiles 5/5 Facilities Facilities were excellent overall – my GF had a wonderful massage there and we used the lounge and bar area a lot. The only complaint would be that the entertainment (music) was a bit rubbish – very old-fashioned songs played from 60s/70s mainly and the guests weren’t a particularly old group. The musicians were talented but really they could do with getting some fresher acts who play something from this century. We used the gym a lot and it is decent but got really busy some days and its relatively small. Good range of equipment though but could use a couple more floor mats. Has tenis courts but we didn’t use them. 4/5 Staff This was the biggest letdown really, a couple of the staff were really nice and friendly but we found the rest to be very helpful, professional but not particularly friendly. Almost as though they were there to do a good job and did so but didn’t really like the guests. Maybe that is just the Portuguese way and it’s a culture thing as it wasn’t just in the hotel but certainly they could be friendlier and look a bit happier when working! 3.5/5

Hotel's Favourite
During our stay in Portobay Falésia we had an issue, which was promptly solved by the hotel Manager. My expectations were far exceeded by the first class services offered by Mr. Fernando Filipe, the Manager of Portobay Hotel. Our stay in Portobay turn out to be surprisingly pleasant, and we really felt very welcome. The hotel staff is very nice and professional, but the Manager, Mr. Fernando Filipe is a top host! The hotel has great sea views and access to sea by stairs (many!), the swimming pool area is very nice. Our special thanks to Mr. Fernando Filipe for making our stay so special and unforgettable.

This was our second stay to this hotel and once again was everything we expected and more. We were a little concerned as to how the hotel would be managing Buffet meal service during COVID, but we couldn’t have been safer. Every little detail had been taken care of to ensure a worry free stay . Highly recommend you pay the extra for a side sea view or for a little more go for the sea view rooms, you will not be disappointed . Room and balcony was of good size and spotlessly clean with daily bedding and towel change .Bathroom had a large walk in shower with a powerful shower head. Pool and pool area were cleaned daily and plenty of sunbed’s every day. The view to the beach is incredible, you can even hear the sea. 5 minutes walk to the beach, although there are a lot of stairs to get up and down. Lovely lunches and drinks served at the pool bar and fast friendly service.Loads of selection to suit everyone . We honestly could not find fault with PortoBay and can’t wait to return.

I've stayed here with a friend for couple of days in June and we had very nice time. Favourite part was Restaurant Falesia by the deck, we were returning here for dinner from our day trips each night as Food, service and view from the deck were the best! Special tanks to Miguel Ramos who gave us great recommendations for food and drinks each night, and always tried to make our stay as pleasent as possible. We even got blankets when we were cold (nights in Portugal are not as warm as we thought 😂).
