Stayed here for 1 week. Was apprehensive looking at reviews before departure. On arrival paid the €150 deposit as outlined in our booking, and which was returned to us no problem on departure. We were staying in a well maintained and well equipped apartment. Air conditioning is extra, but we were happy to go without, and survived 30+ degree heat... More

If you don´t pay when booking and if you want a/c on arrival it is normal to pay, here, to use it. About safe all over... More

We had an awful experience in Balai Sol. The location is not great, it is about a half an hour walk to the nearest shops and bars. To call a taxi they charge 1 euro each time. I would advise anyone to stay somewhere else and save money on the taxis you will be getting twice or three times a... More
