What a great place. Yes it's a bit tired and basic but it is nice and clean. Staff all very friendly. They do cheaper airport transfers than most places (we wish we had known this) and also offer a mini bus service to the strip and old town for €2.00 per person one way. They do a nice basic menu...

Just back from a great week at this small but adequate hotel. Just outside the busier resort of albuferia (20 min walk) Self catering Rooms are basic but roomy. Staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable especially adelaide who we got on great with. They run a shuttle bus 3 times daily to the old town area for a few euro. Picturesque... More

Just spent a week here with my partner (we're in our twenties). Firstly the apartments, grounds including pool side are immaculate. I don't think I've ever seen a mess of any sort. The staff are EXTREMELY helpful and the pool bar serves food/drinks at reasonable prices (you have to understand that due to the complex being self catering the owners... More

Firstly this hotel is very clean and tidy, beds and towels changed regularly. The staff were polite and as helpful as they could be with the English they understood - which was mostly very good! This is a 10 minute walk from the strip which has great restaurants, bars and clubs. The marina is a 15 minute taxi drive and... More

My wife and I stayed for a week from 6th August 2015 and it turned out to be a perfect hotel and location for us, a couple who like to laze by the pool in the day and take a trip to the town/strip for dinner and drinks. The room we had was a superior and I would recommend one... More

Myself, my husband and our two children (5 & 7) have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Balaia Sol and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Stress free private transfer from faro took approximately 30 mins. Balaia sol itself is in a lovely peaceful location but yet within a 10/15 min walk of Albuferia and about same distance to... More

Right then, let me tell it as it is because some peoples reviews are very unfair. Firstly, a bit about myself. We were a married couple, 40ish with 2 young children ages 2 & 4. I have travelled extensively throughout the world for business and pleasure staying in anything from hostels to 5* hotels. This is not a 5* hotel... More

My sister and I stayed here last week with our two nine year olds. We had a brilliant time. We arrived on 21 july and got straight into our room which was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need. We had 2 balconies abd cracking views over the pool and the whole of albufiera. Its a beautiful place to... More

Spotless,comfortable apts in a lovely quiet location. We were made feel most welcome by all the staff here who work exceptionally hard. Nice food at the pool bar,and plenty of sun beds available during our stay. The whole complex is very well maintained and is 'picture postcard pretty', especially the gardens and grounds. Would not hesitate to return :)
