This was our first trip to Balaia and it won't be our last! We were quite worried about what we would find after reading so many poor reviews from this site. We travelled for 2 weeks from 2nd to 16th August with 3 children aged 9, 8 and 6. As a family we have always booked our holidays through sites... More

My family and I stayed at balaia golf village from the 6th- 20th of August. After reading some of the reviews I was a bit apprehensive about the type of welcome we would receive. Having worked in customer service for many years I found nothing wrong with any of the staff we dealt with. Though this complex has some 700+... More

Well we are just back from our family holiday to Portugal staying at the Balaia Golf Village Resort from 13th – 20th August. I'd read mixed reviews about the resort but decide to chance it as most were positive. I have to say it did not disappoint us. We booked the whole thing through OnTheBeach including the transfer. Transfer from... More

We visit here often & have never been disappointed. The villas & grounds are well maintained with good leisure facilities---golf, tennis, bowls & swimming. A Varanda restaurant has good sized portions & is value for money but for more informal eating there is a good choice at the golf club. All the staff on the complex are pleasant & helpful.We... More

I stayed at the Balaia Golf Village in August 2014 with my wife, 17 year old daughter and 3 year old son. It is a lovely resort. I checked these reviews before going and most are accurate. The complex is immaculately maintained and there are approx 6 pools, 4 tennis courts, a gym, an indoor pool and of course, golf.... More

We stayed here from 16th to 26th July 2014 and we couldn't fault the place. The reception staff, gardeners, maids etc were all lovely and helpful, especially when it came to helping with luggage as my husband is an amputee. We were a 5 second walk to one of the pools and we could sit on our veranda and watch... More

We were a family of 4- 2 adults, one 8 yr old and one 15 yr old. Stayed 18th July for one week. This resort was beautiful and perfect for all age groups. Yes it was a big resort which meant a bit of a walk to get anywhere on site but hey you're on holiday. Enjoy the walk and... More
