Room was comfortable, location was good, maid service was excellent. However, management chose to not heat the lounge areas (cold) where wifi was available at no charge. No laundry facilities. Renovations were ongoing in main lounge area for the month of our stay. This was part of a reasonably-priced vacation package.

Spent a week there, on holiday. The room was a bit outdated, but cozy and spacious. The kitchen had every appliance we needed, the balcony was great. The closest beach, can be reached in a 5 minute hike. It has a gym (I did not use it because it was 5Eur per day), and has a nice indoor and outdoor... More

Myself and a friend booked a 2 night stay here via booking.com for the bargain price of €59 for 2 nights. Balaia Plaza is approx 40 mins from Faro airport, easily accessible by car. It's not in the heart of Albufeira but this is its appeal. We arrived late at night and were greeted by polite staff. We were thrilled... More

I am not a whinger and never written a bad review or had reason to previously, I believe everyone has the right to share their opinions and should not be called a whinger for doing so. We found the reception staff were unhelpful and rude. There was no information folder in the room regarding how to get to local beaches,... More

Just got back from a girls holiday after a week and had a great time with the people we met. In my opinion, the greatest part about this hotel is the pool area. The pool is not heated but we managed to stay in the water for hours anyway. The pool bar sells snacks and drinks at reasonably prices but... More

We booked this through BA as it was advertised as a 4* apartment. The building, although clean, is tatty and needs attention. We returned on 26th September and although we understood it was the end of the season, the bars were closed, the staff were minimal and the maid only came occasionally. The reception staff are miserable and unhelpful and... More

Classed as a four star. No way it's a four star. Don't stay on first floor. Room 109 has a hole in wardrobe which leads to top of bar and music starts first in morning. Ends around 1am. I reported it and nothing was done about it. Girl on reception is miserable. As the other staff. Older lady very nice.... More
