Plus points: Attencious staff at the reception, tennis court, golf areas, a lot of green areas to have a walk, nice gym and great swimming pools. The room we stayed was on the ground floor and had access to the pool. The view was amazing. Minus points: The first night we stayed we found a plastic bag of paper tissues...

What a wonderful place! We had a superior 2 bedroom apartment. It was really spacious, with 2 bathrooms, 2 balconies and a utility room. The kitchen was so well equipped, far better than any other self catering that I have experienced. It had every utensil you could possibly need and even the knives were sharp. The additional juicer and coffee...

Just returned from 10 days in the Balaia golf resort and had a very enjoyable time - we had a 1 yr old and a OAP in the group but the lovely surroundings and variety of pools kept everyone happy. Most of the staff were excellent but some of the reception staff may need to brush up on their smiling...

We stayed at the Balaia Golf Village Resort from the 29th August to the 5th September. We had been to the Balaia area 11 years previously so had a good idea of the location. We arrived around 1 o'clock and the reception was quite busy but we were dealt with quickly and were given the keys and a brief overview...

We stay here 3 night as our anniversary getaway in February 2014. We had 1 bed self catering apartment. Everything was very basic, tired,old, cheap. Wouldn't give more than 3*. From pots and plates in the kitchen to linen and blankets on the bed .Bed was uncomfortable.Great location. Just 5 min to the beach and 10 min to local restaurants/...

I stayed in this resort during the summer with 2 good friends. It's more of a family resort but it had some nice pools with a couple of small bars. The bar itself was a bit pricey so better buy drinks at the local grocery shop near the entrance.

This was our first trip to Balaia and it won't be our last! We were quite worried about what we would find after reading so many poor reviews from this site. We travelled for 2 weeks from 2nd to 16th August with 3 children aged 9, 8 and 6. As a family we have always booked our holidays through sites...
