Just returned from the Balaia apartments. it was a very enjoyable stay. The apartments were spotless clean and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. We had lovely breakfasts and the evening meals got better as the week went on with more variations.

After having such a good time last year my husband and I decided for the first time ever to return to the same place. And we weren't disappointed! The hotel is very clean although the bathrooms could do with a freshening up. The rooms are serviced everyday and the towels replaced. The restaurant and pool areas are exceptionally clean. The...

The apartment was lovely couldn't fault the cleanliness of the whole resort. Our apartment was cleaned every day and clean towels left on a daily basis too. The reception staff were very helpful and informative. The food was always fresh, occasionally wasn't too hot but apart from that it was plentiful and varied everyday. The waiters were friendly and taught... More

I took my two sons back here again summer '14 and had a great time...again. I've never EVER been back to the same place for a holiday but this place just does the job for us. Great apartment, top floor this year so no ear plugs needed to hide the road noise (see my review from last year). Had a... More

Amazing stay in this hotel - my partner and I went with our three children (7,6 & 4) all inclusive - the staff couldn't do enough for you - nothing was too much trouble. The reception staff were lovely also and when we got there late on the first night (about 11pm) they rang the bar and asked them to... More

My boyfriend and I booked this last minute and only actually stayed in the hotel for three nights on a self catering basis. The staff were fantastic and could not do enough for you. Our room was cleaned daily, towels replaced and the free toiletries replenished. The double bed was huge and extremely comfortable. We both commented upon the amazing... More

My boyfriend and I are just back from a lovely week in albufeira. We arrived at the hotel near one in the morning and although the kitchen had been finished for an hour, the staff were still happy to make us burgers. We stayed on a b&b basis. The breakfast was great. Including cereal, fresh fruit, croissants and cooked breakfast... More
