Just returned from a family vacation (kids: 10, 7,5) and had a fabulous time. Balaia golf village is perfect for families, with spacious (although slightly dated) 2 bedroom apartments, fully functioning kitchen and two bathrooms. Minimal bathroom supplies provided, although rooms cleaned daily. The grounds are gorgeous and all the pools are immaculately kept. The heated indoor pool is also great especially on cooler days - make sure this (and the gym) are included in the package price otherwise it's payment on single entry. Swimming caps are also required, although not for the outdoor pools. Pool towels provided only for the indoor pool. Breakfast is provided in the golf club - a little walk away within the grounds, but we enjoyed the additional fresh air before eating. We paid for half board - break is substantial enough, with yummy home
made jams!; dinner was not bad, for the first four nights, but after that we chose to eat out - wouldn't opt for half board again, although if you do eat out, you need a car.
Highly recommend hiring a car from faro airport (as transfer to hotel cost €60 single way,and car hire was €120 for 3 days including drop off at airport). We loved exploring the costal and inland towns - a car is essential for this; went to Lagos (amazing beaches), silves (great Moorish castle), portimao( great wooden walkway along beach) and Saturday market town (name??) great family vacation!
