We do have a disabled daughter in a wheelchair so requested an accessible room (on ground floor or accessible by lift if there was one.

We are a fit and able couple and enjoy walking therefore we were able to walk into the 'mini strip'Take the free bus to the old town, get to supermarkets and find some lovely beaches. We were able to navigate our way through... More

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

our second stay at the Balaia Sol and found it very much the same as two years ago...sorry to say that Albufiera has changed though, not for the better. Found that both sides of 'the strip' to be very shabby, if not closed down, yet Old Town much improved with it mostly being pedestrians only and all on one level.... More

Enjoyed my stay nice and peaceful. You need to be mobile to get to the beach and town centre. Spent on taxis every evening for return from centre roads unsafe to walk in the dark.ok for a relaxing week. Glad only booked for one would be bored if longer.overall worth the money at september rates. Wouldnt go in school holidays... More
