Booked this in December 2016 and got a fabulous price, was a little put off by some of the negative reviews but have to say one of the most relaxing holidays I have had in recent years. Room 12 overlooked the pool (not heated) and gardens, the staff were efficient and friendly and explained everything we needed to know. Complex...

The Balaia Sol was the perfect location for our week in Portugal. It was so very peaceful and friendly, with all we needed for our holiday. Accommodation was superb - most clean and comfortable. Towels were changed and bathroom was cleaned regularly. Balaia Sol is conveniently located as it is just a short walk to local restaurants and supermarkets. There...

Had a great week here. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the grounds and pool area immaculately kept. Our very spacious one-bedroomed apartment was spotless with housekeeping coming in two or three times during the week. The kitchen area was well stocked with plenty of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. As well as the hob area, a decent...

Our apartment was clean and housekeeping visited twice during our stay. Plenty of fresh towels and extra bed linen in the room. Pool bar was small and food was over priced and of poor quality. Drinks were more expensive than any other place we visited but not extortionate. Complex was immaculate with people constantly out doing the gardening and cleaning...

Rooms very basic, however do the job. Surroundings just lovely and scenic. Food and drink on the pricey side however strip only 10 min walk away with plenty of variety. Staff very helpful. If I ever visit Albaferia again would definitely consider returning to Balaia Sol Holiday Club.
