Visited in Late April booked for 7 nights and were located in a small villa close to the reception, it was reasonably clean inside but the patio area was awful, old dirty table and broken chairs, with only two chairs for 4 people with walls on 3 sides so little chance of any sun breaking through. We had breakfast included...

Dropped off whilst waiting for our transfer as we had to leave the villa at 11.00. Dropped off at the restaurant which is very nice but is more of a snack bar. Caters in the restaurant for locals which is a good sign that it is good. No where 'safe' to leave cases we left them in the restaurant, which...

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...

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...

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...

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"...
