Well, contrary to some other recent reviews we had a fab holiday. This was our 5th stay here and we came in group of 4 families - 20 in total. There is something for everyone, some of us wanted to lounge by the pool (which seemed very crowded this year) or under the trees behind the pool (more relaxing), some... More

These holidays in Club Med almost turned to a nightmare.Please find below my comments of the week spent there : - very noisy room. Close to the bar which stops the music at 23:00. The cleaners start quite early (6:30/7:00) which makes small nights for holidays - no cold water in the shower. - cockroach also shared some nights with... More

we were a family in this Club med for 2 weeks in July2014 and we had a great time there. First, if you don't speak french you'll feel excluded. Also, even in July, the ocean is around 16 degrees and it can be quite windy so we were surprised to be often cold around the pool or in the semi... More

As a first experience at the Club Med I have to say that it's all very positive. If you are looking for holidays with young kids, this is your place. First the location is perfect so as the weather. Staff is very friendly and professional. There are so friendly that one guy is dedicated to wish you:" bon appetit!" I... More

In here you can find lots of activities like mini golf, kayak, tennis, fitness and loads of other entertainment. I went there and there is a show every night. I can't also forget about the amazing beach beneath the cliff where the Hotel lays. Fantastic place and wonderful hospitality, I highly recommend.

We arrived by car and there is parking on the premises, which is good; however we were to told right away that they did not like English being spoken here (we are Australians - not British but that should not...

We stayed at the resort 2nd - 9th July. My wife and 21 year old daughter stayed in the Pryamid. My 18 year son and I in the Golf. Some of the earlier comments caused much concern re the Golf Hotel. Having stayed there - almost totally unfounded. The Golf rooms are slightly tired but not enough to complain about.... More

This was our second visit to Da Balaia, proof itself of a great holiday last year. Will we go back? probably not unfortunately (or it will have to be by car), and I will tell you why Firstly the bad points: The big one is this: we bought a holiday from Club Med. That included travel, which they booked for... More

We, a family of 5 ( including 3 kids 9 year old twins and a 6 months old) had a great time. When we arrived our suitcase and stroller were lost. GO's went out of their way to get us free toiletries and essentials. Our interconnecting family room in the Golf hotel was basic but very clean and functional (... More
