PortoBay Falesia

The stylish PortoBay Falesia has some of the very best views in the Algarve.

Perched on a clifftop, this place has two pools. One’s a huge tranquil lake, and the other is indoor, next to the spa. By the main pool, there’s a children’s pool and a bar that serves drinks and a la carte lunches.

Evenings are generally quiet, but the lounge bar often hosts live music, and if you fancy a boogie, there’s a dance floor. For meals, you’ll find two restaurants.
