Falesia Garden

The Falesia Garden overlooks the Algarve coastline, so you get great views of the sea from the pool. This hotel is particularly popular with people looking for action-packed getaways. Adults and kids have plenty to keep them busy, including a long list of activities and a sandy playground.

For relaxing afternoons, a slender pool overlooks the plunging green hillside, which leads down to the beach.

For meals, kids have their own menu to pick from at the buffet restaurant, while adults can choose from international and Mediterranean dishes.

Resort Summary

Like many Algarve resorts, Olhos de Agua started life as a fishing village and grew to accommodate tourists. Fishermen still bring in their haul, ready to serve at local restaurants that evening. Here, you’ll get an authentic Portuguese holiday, where even the souvenir shops sell handmade local products.

Olhos de Agua is ideally situated for a relatively quiet break but within 15 minutes of two exciting towns. To the west is Albufeira with its old Moorish town and great shopping and bar scene. It’s the same distance east to the chic marina town of Vilamoura, which offers boutique shops and Roman ruins. Olhos de Agua is also only half an hour from Faro Airport so when you land you can be there in no time.
