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

The village has very good grounds and six swimming pools. The gardens are kept in very good order. The apartment was very good spacious, clean and comfortable with all you need if self catering. The clubhouse is a nice spot for lunch. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful especially on reception. We took at walk to 'The Strip' which is about 15/20mins. The locals are...

When we left Balaia Golf Resort, we thought that we would someday return. We enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately, we left a red jacket and a black coverup in the closet of the second bedroom and when we questioned, the resort they indicated that it was not there. We were even willing to return to pick it up. Our fault that... More

We had booked for Christmas Dinner at the Golf resort Restaurant, the service was excellent and the food fantastic, coupled with music from the pianist, the 13 of us that were there had a great time. The drink prices were very good and considering the Christmas Dinner menu was only €30 per head including wine we could find no fault... More

The majority of these apartments are privately owned and rented out to holiday makers which means that although similar in size and furniture you can't guarantee the state of the inside of them. Our 2 bedroom superior apartment was huge with 2 bedrooms (1 en-suite), 2 bathrooms, kitchen (with all the mod cons you could wish for) and lounge /... More

We had a wonderful stay for a week here. The room is really nice and well equipped. Really no complaints to speak of. The cleaning staff was awesome. The front desk staff was very helpful and organized a tour to Lisbon, a holiday chart show and other great restaurant recommendations. We really enjoyed our first visit to Portugal. One thing...
