Visited here in June 2014 after booking a last minute get away. The rooms are a good size and are clean. Pool area was clean and tidy. Only down side of this lovely place is the distance from the bars and restaurants. It was roughly a 20 minute walk. Enjoyed our stay here and would stay again.

I arrived about 4 hours before I should have for my room at the Balaia-Sol Holiday Club, but this was not a problem for the staff, they said my room would be ready in 1/2 an hour..Excellent. I normally just use hotels as a base & drive out for miles in my hire car, but as it was raining, I... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for a week in September 2014, I've never written feedback on here before but felt compelled to after reading the "Stay away" review below. A few points to consider: - "disinhibit". FYI alcohol has the effect of "disinhibiting" so I'm unclear how this would relate to the hotel's notices around the facilities... - The "Price... More

Apartments are spotless with clean towels and maid service every other day and... More

Just back from a week in Albuifera where my friend and I stayed in the Balaia Sol. We were pleasantly surprised on arrival as the surroundings are ever so pretty with beautiful gardens, stunning blooms and olde world style outdoor decor. The apartments are like little chalets and none are very far from the pool/reception area. Our apartment was quite... More

We are a couple that spent 5 days during August / September 2014. Place is ok to sleep but terrible if you want to use it as an apartment. Throughout the hotel premise, you face an irritant number of messages that disinhibit you of using anything and in addition the owner clearly does not like to help with the slightest... More

Myself and my boyfriend have just arrived home from here and we have bad holiday blues! Balaia sol is beautiful, clean and peaceful. We are certainly going to miss all the lovely staff here and the beautiful smiles that greeted us every morning from the very helpful Adelaide and Ana. We will definitely be coming back here. The reason I... More

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
