My sister and I stayed here last week with our two nine year olds. We had a brilliant time. We arrived on 21 july and got straight into our room which was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need. We had 2 balconies abd cracking views over the pool and the whole of albufiera. Its a beautiful place to... More

Spotless,comfortable apts in a lovely quiet location. We were made feel most welcome by all the staff here who work exceptionally hard. Nice food at the pool bar,and plenty of sun beds available during our stay. The whole complex is very well maintained and is 'picture postcard pretty', especially the gardens and grounds. Would not hesitate to return :)

Just got back from a weeks stay at the Balaia Sol, being our first time in Portugal, we couldn't have asked for more. The hotel is very picturesque and relatively small which we felt was much nicer than the large & crowded complexes. Location wise it was ideal for us, 15 minute walk to the strip in one direction and... More

Absolutely loved these apartments! Ideally located for a quiet stay yet a mere 15min walk to the strip and a regular bus service provided too. Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful gardens and nice sized pool. Decent food served at the bar area and a mini market close by for essentials. My friend and I stayed in a studio garden view...

My husband and I spent 10 days at the Balaia-Sol. We had a very comfortable one bedroom apartment with all the facilities we needed. The staff were extremely pleasant and very helpful, particularly as we did encounter a problem with our transfers - she could not have done more for us. The pool area and bar were spotless and the...

This was our 4th stay at Balaia Sol, once again a wonderful relaxing holiday. A warm welcome after a mere 40 minute transfer from Faro from Ana. It really is like our second home and hope to stay here on many more occasions. Our studio room was spacious and comfortable with lovely views of the gardens, which are kept in... More
