Well this was our second time here after having a brilliant time last year. We came over hoping it hadn't changed and we're pleased to say it was practically the same as before.

This was my second stay at Balaia Sol Holiday Club & once again it was near perfect. The grounds & rooms are very well kept & very clean, as most hotels in this price budget, the rooms are slightly basic but it has comfortable beds, a small lcd tv & kitchen area where tea,coffee & simple cooking could be done....

My daughter and I booked a studio for 1 wk. There is ample room, but the downside is you have to sit on the bed if you want to relax. The complex has everything req'd with lots available nearby. Helpful staff. Booked again this year but 1 bedroom!

We were able to navigate our way through... More

We booked this place for 10 days only arriving back last week. I had looked up trip advisor to read previous reviews and was fairly satisfied that the balaia sol was a good choice for us. Unfortunately this hotel was not what we expected at all, yes it's pretty in the photos and the grounds are well kept no one... More

Booked on a whim, we took on board other reviews here and accepted that 'everything is a matter of opinion'. We arrived relatively late and we were booked in promptly and smoothly, quickly being shown to our apartments ( we were 2 couples..... More
