Been here since 2001 and every year it´s getting worst ! Same furniture since the first time. A ridiculous 26" LCL television, we can only see the subtitles using binoculars. The mattresses are to soft ad the pillows to hard, payed internet access, 25€ per week, The maintenance is poor, several little things were broken, door knobs, electric plugs, we... More

We had a great time as a family. The flat was big enough but the sofa wasn't comfortable to sleep on. The swimming pool was big and nice. People were nice in general... We really loved Maria Luisa Beach. It's only 5 minutes walk from the flat and it is a nice family beach.

Our family of 5 (kids 8, 6 and 4) visited the BGV from 2 to 16 August 2015. We stayed in a ground floor, 2 bedroom superior apartment (224). It had A/C in every room - but worth checking before you book as not all rooms have this. The kitchen and fittings were of high quality and it is close... More

We were a group of 12. Some of which stayed in a huge villa toward the top on the resort near golf course, while the other half of the party stayed in a "superior apartment" situated on the main road over looking the supermarket. No faults with the large villa, it was a great size with good facilities and over... More

I would definitely recommend this place! Before we travelled I was a bit concerned as there were a few negative reviews, I think the trick is to be very clear what you are getting in advance. We booked with Low cost holidays and after several calls to them prior to departure I knew that we were getting accommodation out by... More

It was completely full so i was only able to stay one night. Surprise: check in is at 16:00. Unbelievable. Especially for just one night. Thats probably not a problem for someone comming for one week, But with just one night? With the check in at 16:00 and check out at 12:00 its 20 hours. That means 10 euros per... More

When you come inside Balaia Golf Village you forget the tourist pressure and you can live a fantastic place with nice houses (2 or 3 bed rooms), restaurants, bars, 4 swimming pools, tennis courts, football camp, golf 9 holes and much more. Service is really outstanding, beach is just 5 minutes walking and if want to go to night live... More

We arrived at Balaia Golf Village quite late from the airport but the reception is open 24 hours (despite our itinerary stating that check in closed at midnight!). We had a superior one bedroom apartment (room 220), and it was very comfortable, a 5 minute walk from the reception, and very near one of the pools (the hotel has 6... More

We and our children really enjoyed staying here. The grounds and gardens are so pretty. Having a choice of pools was great for the kids. Our apartment (no. 383) was on the ground floor and the patio opened out onto a large shady garden space. It was an easy walk to reception, the small supermarket and the street. It was... More

It's pathetic place and pictures are very deceiving to say the least. Stayed 3 nights and the rooms look and are very tired need a complete renovation. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone and as said the pictures that you see prior to the booking is not what you get. The village itself is clean and all but the... More
