This Villa is beautiful on first viewing. There are four bedrooms, containing 2 x twin beds, one double (very very hard mattress!) a single room with cabin bed beneath and a king size suite with bathroom. The outside of the villa has a lovely big pool with mature trees and flowers surrounding. There are plenty of areas to eat out... More

We stayed with friends in their villa for a week. The place is not luxurious but comfortable. I have no idea what the rented villas or apartments are like but the villa owned by our friends was well looked after, clean and comfortable. The restaurant on the Quinta serves simple food. A good sign is that it seems to attract... More

This summer we went to Quinta da Balaia to spend a holliday week and it turned into a holliday nightmare. Cleanness was almost inexistent. There were pencils, pens and papers under the sofas when we arrived there. The kitchen stank. The toilett, the bath and the sink were clogged and «sewer was the perfume». There were several cobwebs on the... More

Last weekend I wanted to use a "Smart Box" and checked Quinta da Balaia's website where they had this special offer for 4 nights paying only 3 with breakfast. I called them and asked if it would be possible to use the "Smart Box" with the special offer. They told me that it would be fine. However, using the "SmartBox"... More

I read the other reviews and my experience is totally different. Last year my husband and I stayed at Quinta da Balaia and had a wonderful time! The bungalow was great, much bigger than we expected and the garden was very beautiful. The staff was very nice and the cleaning ladies were very nice as well. The only thing that... More

On arrival at this resort we were told that our villa did not have its own private pool, something that we specified in our booking and paid for. The staff were very unhelpful and unwilling to even try to accomodate us, telling us point blankly that most villas did not have their own pools - basically tough luck to us,... More

When staying at this resort, we had our possesions stolen. We all had Cash taken from our Suitcases, there was no sign of a break in, but someone was able to get in. Only cash was stolen, everything was put back exactly as it was left. We would have had a Safety Deposit box but was told at reception that... More
