Just back from a lovely week of sunshine at Da Balaia. We did have a great holiday but certain things have slipped since last year. . The baby corner was a disgrace. I wouldn't feed that food to my dog! Tough beef, dry pieces of chicken floating in water, tinned carrots, - really poor. They serve soup, cheese etc but no bread. Had to ask for bread and on one occasion got told there was none by the waitress. So dinner for my kids was a major let down. Clearly as a resort that specializes in under 4s they expect them to eat slop.
Bar staff were nothing short of rude - quite offensive actually!
Beach lovely! And plenty of lounge chairs. Pool great too and ample chairs. All and all we had a great holiday but its a shame the standards and service have slipped.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

It's a world to unwind in, perfumed by the woody scents of parasol pines, olive trees and eucalyptus. Comfort and cosiness are to be found everywhere, even in the reception area where marble floors and deep red walls set the tone. This is a Club Med Resort where families, golfers and Spa enthusiasts live together in harmony. ... more less
