Nice resort some small things would make it perfect

Lovely resort, nice spacious apartments but beds and pillows terrible, difficult to get a decent nights sleep. Also resort should have golf buggies on hand to transport guests to and from rooms to resort entrance where breakfast was. Resort is huge and a good 15 mins walk each way. Breakfast was very average.

golf hoilday

A lovely apartment, the best so far. Well equipped, light and airy. Two balconies so we could get the sun all day. Dishwasher and washing machine include, though not always both in some apartments. Good small golf course on site. Lots of pools to choose from. Close to the beach and some lovely restaurants.

The best thing about my stay was...

The weather, golf and being with good friends.

This is our second time staying at the Balaia Golf Village . Love this place the first time we stayed here so decided to come back. This area suits us as it is not that far away from some really nice restaurants in Olhos de Água and the beach is not that far away.

Lovely and peaceful at this time of the year

6th stay at Balaia

6th visit, stayed in same apartment as 3 times previously so knew exactly what we were getting. 2 bed superior down by golf club house. All facilitiies inc dishwasher, washer & dryer, coffee machine, juice maker, full seperate freezer, etc I always forget that we need to bring a dish cloth and oven gloves though! Weather gorgeous, between 17 - 24 degrees over the last 2 weeks December. Even went in the sea on Christmas day (but it was a bit chilly) Outdoor pools not heated, but they let us use indoor for free, usually 4euros pp, so a bonus. It was cold at night, but air con also does heating up to 30deg so not a problem. Before Christmas there was no one around, absolutely dead, it was brilliant - millionaires golf almost as there was only us out on the Vilamoura 5 courses plus it was so much cheaper than in season. However by 27th everywhere was again full of people, from all around Europe - suprisingly busy. Will definitely visit again this time of year as the peace and quiet before Christmas suits us. We had Christmas dinner in the restaurant at Balaia GV and it was excellent, 5 courses plus unlimited wine, soft drinks, water, plus tea and coffee - plus accompanied by a singing pianist - really lovely, thoroughly enjoyed and excellent value for money.

The best thing about my stay was...

Beautiful Weather plus Christmas dinner at La Veranda - delicious!

Great complex.Immaculate grounds

We really enjoyed staying at the Balaia.The complex is superb. There is loads to do.So many pools to use.Staff were friendly but not overtly so. Very good location, close to both the new and old town. Our appartment was very spacious and great VFM, but one negative, was that it was very dated.(Ours was anyway) Another huge plus was the availability of TV channels. All sports channels which was nice, and FOX tv channels, meant there was always something to watch when you weren't out enjoying the sun.

Weather was absolutely superb for the time of year

Recently home

Late check in 4.00pm not good. Room 483 on main road really noisy. Rooms ok, lounge kitchen bathroom but bedroom really basic and bed very uncomfortable, thin mattress and doubled up with traffic noise outside I don't think I had 10 hours sleep in the four days we stayed.

The best thing about my stay was...

The golf course and grounds were nice, the rooms around them were very nice but our room was high up with a view of the main road

Absolutely amazing place to stay. The apartment was beautiful and the golf village was just lovely with well kept gardens and pool areas. We ate at the restaurant just the once but the buffet was lovely and would definitely eat there again.

Love this place!

This was our fifth time to stay in Balaia Golf Village - our first time without the children! We love the relaxed atmosphere in the resort. It's also within walking distance of Olhos d'Agua, which has lots of lovely restaurants and a few nice bars, or the Strip, if you want more lively nightlife!

The best thing about my stay was...

Relaxing atmosphere. Lovely staff.

Brilliant stay

Third time staying in the complex. The staff are brilliant so friendly and very accommodating. We looked for the same apartment we had stayed in previously and they were able to accommodate this. The courtesy bus is also a great bonus bringing you to the old town or trip twice a day.

The best thing about my stay was...

The variety of pools

Great family apartment

We are just back from a week here with 3 adults and 2 children under 4- we had a room only stay in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment - everything was clean / tidy and well maintained reception staff were polite and helpful ! We ate in the on site restaurant on last night using the set menu and was slightly disappointed it wasn't as tasty as hoped for but the buffet food which was for board customers looks gorgeous and smelt gorgeous and with plenty of choice . We ended up going to the old town a lot as the strip didn't really suit our group but there is a beach approx 10 mins walk away and a small supermarket which had a great variety of food and essentials available

The best thing about my stay was...

Portugal Holiday

Just returned from Balaia Golf village with our 4 year old. Chose this accommodation due to the choice of outdoor and indoor pools. The complex is large and very well kept with a golf course at the back. There are 6 outdoor pools dotted around the complex with 1 small heated pool near the main reception( however the heating is turned off on the 31/10!). When booking we had quite a confusing choice of options( bedrooms,sizes etc, all at different costs) We ended up with a 1 bedroom, 3rd floor apt which was very decent, had a separate kitchen, a double pull out bed in the living room which was pretty comfy compared to some we have used before. Really surprised that the TV had a full range of english Sky channels which came in very handy due to the weather we had!! Maid service was every day which was great. Would say you do need to hire a car as we did as the site is a little way out of albufeira( did walk it 1 evening to The Strip..about 20 mins). The weather was awful( no fault of the complex!!) so we went to use the indoor pool and found that there was a charge for this 12.50 euros for the 3 of us. No mention of this in the details..queried this at reception and was told that they tell all the 3rd party booking agents of this so feel it is Alpharooms who let us down as if we had booked direct with Balaia the indoor pool is included in the stay. The weather was so poor that we had to use the pool 4 days..so quite a bit if extra expense. The pool was decent though! Due to the storms we did have a problem with the boiler but this was sorted and dealt with really well. all staff really friendly and spoke good english!

Standard of accommodation varies

A dissapointing second visit to Balaia. Resort is great but apparently accommodation is down to luck. We booked a superior two bed as last time but this one was in need of a refurb. Washing machine didn't work, no plug for kitchen sink, no air con, freezer door didn't close due to ice build up. Only 1 breakfast bowl, again down to the owners.It didn't spoil our holiday but we will not return again. Reception staff have advised that they may bring in standards next year, so check what you are getting!

The best thing about my stay was...

Spacious site, great pools

Balaia golf village is a stunning complex, family friendly and wonderful location

This was our 5th stay at Balaia and we never get bored of the stunning location and views. We have always booked a private/friends apartment so this time we used Alpharooms and were a little disappointed with the lack of self catering facilities. Only two mugs and one wine glass. Lovely dinner service but not practical. No washing machine. Ants in the main bathroom always!! However this would not stop us returning as the location is the best.

Not as advertised

The complex itself was brilliant but our apartment was a disapointment. We booked it on the basis that the list of amenities given on this website was what we would get in our apartment. When we got there we discovered we had no washing machine or Iron. Our door looked like it had been kicked in & our 20 month toddler was able to open the door which was a worry as we were on the top floor. We booked a superior apartment and we also discovered when we got there it wasn't anything like what they showed in the photos, it was quiet dated and in need of a refurb. Also we had to pay for wifi & a babycot which I thought was abit far-fetched in this day & age.

The best thing about my stay was...
