From the moment I checked in, my first impression of the hotel was that it has such a laid back, therapeutic, low key atmosphere, which is far from the noisy and fast paced 'rushing around style' a lot of hotels seem to have and I felt this was perfect and appropriate for the location and type of holiday. The young,... More

I would higly recommend this hotel. Fabulous food, buffet for breakfast and dinner (the freshly grilled fish) was delicious. Good choice of food. Staff is so nice and helpful. No problems with checking out later.

Me & my boyfriend spent 10 nights half board at the Balaia Mar Hotel, and had a really enjoyable stay. It provided a fantastic base for us to explore the Algarve. It is in a quiet, tranquil location, a little while out of the centre of Albufeira, but there is a bus stop on the main road outside the hotel... More

Have to admit as the season was still very early late April there were not many guests, so I guess we were spoilt. All four of us were on an all inclusive offer. The attraction of course is the drinks and it didn't take long to take in more than made the whole package a real bargain. The rooms although... More

Typical holiday hotel for clothes storage (limited) but room and bathroom very clean, with kettle, cups and saucers provided and small fridge. Bed was huge and very comfortable and free air conditioning and electric roller shutters as well as thick curtains is good for those who find it difficult to sleep when it is light. The staff are the best... More

Hotel very clean, rooms small but comfortable, good shower and large bathroom. Food was very good, meats were cooked in front of you, fresh every mealtime. The reception staff were great, very attentive, helpful and nothing was ever a bother. The beach is only 5 minutes walk from the hotel and its absolutely gorgeous with a beach bar. Nice meals...
