Fab place, Nice and quiet. not too far away from the strip, around a ten min walk and a ten minute walk in the opposite direction through the woods to the nearest beach. Staff extremely welcoming and helpful. The snacks at the bar very tasty and reasonable. Altogether a lovely relaxing break, stayed at no 3 garden studio, very pretty,... More

Just come back from 7 days at Balaia-Sol some good points and not so good. Location is quite out of the way so if you wanted to eat out and go out for nightlife it meant doing two long walks a day. Do not leave anything in the courtesy room as I had two jackets stolen and they were only... More

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor I booked for my family (2 adults & 2 under tens) to go to the Balaia-Sol. It turned out to be a very good decision. The complex is very well cared for and the small scale makes it feel much more personal than a large corporate hotel. There's a lovely pool area with... More

Just returned from 10 days, and had a fantastic time. We went with our 2 girls and had a lovely one bed apartment, twin beds in the bedroom and two sofabeds in the main living area, with patio doors opening in both rooms onto a double balcony. We overlooked the shrubland at the side of the complex which benefitted from... More

Very clean and quiet complex, nice pool area with snack bar and pool table,no loud music so nice and relaxing. the beach is a good 20-25 mins walk down a track with some steep stairs so if you are a bit unsteady on your feet don't go that way. 15 min walk to the strip with lots of places to...

Stayed at the Balaia Sol in Albufeira end of July 2014 , the apartment was lovely although basic, pool area was lovely and the staff friendly. The whole place was clean and well kept. Far enough away from the strip to be away from the noise but close enough to walk only 20 mins max. Lovely little mini market in... More

Lovely complex in a traditional Portuguese style. Apartments are arranged around a central courtyard where the pool, snack bar and games room are. It's lively but not overcrowded and attracts a mix of people coming and going by the day. It has a great, laid back atmosphere whether you are sitting around the pool or lounging on your individual balcony... More

Would highly recommend this complex. Very clean apartments but the shower area is way to small. Staff we're very helpful & friendly. Taxis are very cheap. The new strip is only a 10minute walk. The old strip is a taxi ride €10 only. Will be back. Loved the super bock🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺

The apartments themselves are ideal as they are clean and spacious. We were extra lucky as there seemed to be lovely people staying also... More

Spent five days here recently with large family group. Found the apts basic but very clean. Complex is quaint but querky. It feels more like your private villa with a small intimate pool & fully stocked pool bar. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Tv in room only had sky news in english. If you want to use tv refundable... More
