“The Best Holiday we have EVER had - perfect villa for families”
Reviewed June 28, 2011 for a stay in June 2011
person found this review helpful

We were very nervous of travelling with our two young children - but needn't have worried at all as this apartment has everything you could possibly need for a wonderful family holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean (even to my slight OCD standards) and had tons of storage space (even for my crazy overpacking)! The kitchen is equipped with every possible item you would need from making a quick snace to a full family 3 course dinner, with electric juice squeezers to coffee makers - it was much more like a home from home than I could have hoped for. The villa has great air conditioning - and the shutters meant that both of our children slept really well, it is very peaceful at night time too. The villa is stacked full of so many useful things, a great dishwasher, fab washing machine / tumble dryer, good hairdryer with diffuser, loads of kids games, stereos, dvd player, rubber rings, blow up pool toys etc - next time I could easily cut my packing by half. Location wise the villa is AMAZING - the Balaia Golf Village is beautiful - immaculately maintained, super helpful child friendly staff and loads of lovely clean pools. The great thing about the village is that no matter how busy or quiet you want your day to be - you can find a pool to match. The food at the Golf Course was really good - as were the snacks by the pool nearest to the villa. The villa itself is a 20 second walk to our favourite pool in the village - with a great seperate kids pool too. It is also 20 seconds from the kids club - which our friends used and loved. There are lots of other pools within a few minutes walk (nice flat easy walks with the kids - not power walking hikes) - you really are spoilt for choice. There are a couple of beautiful beaches nearby - one within easy walking distance - Maria Luisa was our favourite, the kids loved it and it has the most wonderful snack bar / restaurant on - so you can sit and eat dinner in peace while watching the kids play on the beach below. The food was amazing and the service great. I cannot explain quite how wonderful this villa is - for a couple or for families it has everything you could hope for and more. We were so sad to leave and booked another 2 week break within a week of returning. Balaia Golf Village is fabulous and this villa definitely the best we have seen and stayed in - and the owners are very helpful (and I promise are not friends of mine or related in any way - nor are they paying me for this review!!). We LOVED this holiday and we LOVED this villa and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a holiday in the Algarve.
