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🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺

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
