We stayed at the Balaia Golf Village Resort from the 29th August to the 5th September. We had been to the Balaia area 11 years previously so had a good idea of the location. We arrived around 1 o'clock and the reception was quite busy but we were dealt with quickly and were given the keys and a brief overview... More

We stay here 3 night as our anniversary getaway in February 2014. We had 1 bed self catering apartment. Everything was very basic, tired,old, cheap. Wouldn't give more than 3*. From pots and plates in the kitchen to linen and blankets on the bed .Bed was uncomfortable.Great location. Just 5 min to the beach and 10 min to local restaurants/... More

I stayed in this resort during the summer with 2 good friends. It's more of a family resort but it had some nice pools with a couple of small bars. The bar itself was a bit pricey so better buy drinks at the local grocery shop near the entrance.

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 have just got back from spending 2 weeks at the resort. Stayed in apt. 273 with my wife and 2 children 8 and 1 yr old. First time away with family and can't fault anything. Upon arrival the reception staff were very welcoming and had put a cot in our room. As it was we didn't need it and... 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
