We privately rented a 2 bed apartment in Balaia in Jul'15 and could not have been happier. The apartment had all the comforts of home, although I believe this may vary depending on the apartment owners. The complex is in a quiet area of the Algarve, close to Albufeira and Vilamoura. Set on a 9 hole par 3 golf course... More

I've stayed in this hotel for years, on family vacations. It's a great place, makes you feel like you're really on vacations. Close to many beautiful beaches, to the center of Albufeira and has a great variety of great swimming pools to choose from. The apartments are nice.

We had a great time here. A few recommendations..... Great tennis pro and well worth a lesson. The kids tennis club was great too. For food the restaurant on site is good and the three marias at the top if the hill is great value. Also good is ó manjar in the old town. Only complaint about the apartment we... More

This was our second time to stay at the BGV, we returned because we loved the first trip so much, you can't fault the facilities or the staff here it has everything you need for a great family break, plenty of swimming pools, sun loungers and lots of green space for the little ones to run about. The facilities are... More

Balaia golf village is a great destination for both couples and families. The grounds are very well kept, and our apartment was lovely. There is a good selection of swimming pools with plenty of sun loungers. It is under-rated at only 4 stars! Don't assume that your apartment is air conditioned as standard! Also, when booking a taxi, ensure it... More

We have just come back from this resort and loved it, our apartment faced pool 1 which was beautifully groomed and never over crowded. Receptionist was very efficient and helpful, she confirmed our return airport transfer with our provider as we were unable to get through. All in all just what we needed a completely relaxing holiday, would definitely go... More

We had an amazing week in Balaia. The apartment was huge and so well equipped the kitchen had a full size freezer, dishwasher, microwave and the list goes on. We were overlooking one of the 6 amazing pools. It was exactly what we were looking for, no noisy pool bar, no nightly entertainment with loud music playing late into the... More
