Having visited the HV Manar Tunisia in 2014 we had our standards set high. Algarve Balaia did not disappoint. In terms of entertainment for the family the children 5 7 & 9 years, their Mom & Dad and Nan & Gramps everyone was catered for with 4 star rating for kids entertainment and 3 stars for the adults. The food... More
