The complex is located on the outskirts of town. When we arrive and the reception staff were very friendly. The apartment we had was near the restaurant and the largest pool and was very big in size. The room was fantastic, very spacious, with everything you would need. I'd like to recommend the 3 Marias restaurant in Olhos d' Agua... More

Another lovely stay! Relaxing, quiet in may, nice pools, lovely staff, private and accessible grounds (great for sleepy baby walks!). We love staying in the 3 bedroom villas and think very good value if you are 4+ people. Comfortably sleeps 6 and could do 8 with sofa bed in lounge. Reception and house keeping perfectly attentive without been intruding!

After a short stop in Lisbon, we (2 adults+ 2 kids) drive down to Albufeira for the week late February. We had picked balaia village, as had been recommended by friends. Resort was pretty empty, which was actually good, as we could enjoy a quiet place, in a sunny and lovely area. We were by the "whale" pool, and I... More
