This is a nice place if you are happy to stay here permanently - if you want to travel anywhere outside Balaia, forget it. There are no taxis available in peak season and nowhere close by to walk to for evening meal/drinks. You'll wait at least 30-45 minutes until the taxi company answers the phone!

I have recently returned from a 10 night stay at the village with my partner. We arrived late at night with a friendly welcome from reception. Had a surprise when we got to our room as it was huge, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living area and two balconies. The rooms are large and are kept very clean,... More

Whilst the resort was pleasant with nice pool we were extremely disappointed with our accommodation. We arrived to find our apartment for 6 adults supposedly private for 4, was in fact a curtains across bunk beds! Despite our complaints to management due to it being full, there was no alternative and the management did not seem to think that it... More

I was told that I would get a telephone call... More

The Accommodation: Clean and very spacious. Air conditioning very helpful for warm nights. It had a washing machine, dishwasher and tumble drier. About a 2 minute walk to a very good supermarket.There are a couple of restaurants around the complex which we ate there and the food was very good. The beds were very comfortable. Wifi is available at €20... More

First of all I wish to compliment management and staff for their attention to detail in maintaining this complex. Though not as "modern", due to its age, it is beautifully maintained, including gardens, pool area, pathways, signage etc. However, I am astounded that such poor effort is made, and due respect shown to those who choose it as their holiday...

Balaia is a wonderful resort. I come here every year and love the place. My only niggle is the bridge pool bar. £4.30 for a beer must be the most expensive on the Algarve. Buy drinks at the veranda or the golf club where the prices are perfectly acceptable.
