Guestbook comments from the owner

'Just a quick note to thank you for the use of your apartment at Balaia. We had a smashing two weeks, and kids had a great time at what is truly an amazing holiday venue. We will have no problem in recommending you and Balaia to anyone interested!'

'I just wanted to say that we had an absolutely fantastic week and were very impressed with Balaia. In fact we are quite interested in booking up for next year'

'Just to let you know that we had a great time at Balaia. The apartment was

perfect for our needs and the village was well managed and maintained and


Being outside the heaving Albufeira was great but close enough if needed to

visit. My only gripe (and it is very minor) was the lack of bars and

restaurants within easy walking distance for a young family.

We loved the location. Very quiet in Feb.-March

  • 4 of 5

The unit is dated but very comfortable and amazing location. Alan said it would be quiet and it was, which made sleeping great, wifi worked, rain or shine, we did not care. Weather was very cool this winter in Portugal and we did have to use all heaters unfortunately, but they worked very well!! For us, it was MUCH better than -30 at home!!! Would and probably will return to Balaia again as we looked around and the resort, however older, has more space and ameneties than many newer resorts, even for non golfers. We could not use the outdoor pools because of cold weather but they were ready 2nd week of March. We gladly paid the fee for the indoor pool and were alone nearly everytime!! GREAT, relaxing holiday, easy walk to beaches, and we are over 65. Plenty of restaurants at decent prices and suipermarket Intermarché nice and easy walk of 20 minutes as well as the local market with fresh and excellent butcher and local produce. The local delicious oranges were sold everywhere and there is an orchard on the resort with fruit covered trees.

The resort has great tours on offer at a discount to guests and we went to Seville. We had a rental a car for our 33 nights BUT for one or two weeks, would just do tours or stay in the area and forget about a car. We used our car on motorways to visit Tavira and Rio Formosa and the rest of the eastern Algarve. We had a blast at the Loule Festival and used toll roads when we wanted to move faster. We made Balaia home for 33 nights and with our vehicle, life was very easy and became home...we left the vehicle sitting many days.

We walked to Intermarché but used the local supermarket nearby at Balaia often as it was convenient and had a good choice, wih coffee shop and the delicious Portuguese Pastries. Thank you, Alan, for the use of your vacation rental. We hope to talk to you again. ENJOY THE BEACH!!! Nicole and Nick, Ottawa, Canada

Lovely apartment in a a great golf complex

  • 5 of 5

Balaia golf village is in a very good location, 10 mins walk in either direction to shops, bars and restaurants. Lovley beaches are also within walking distance. As it was February when we visited we did not make use of the 6 pools on the complex and the restaurant and pool bars were closed. It will be a great place to visit in the summer. My sons played golf on the complex on 2 occasion. Although only a par 3 course it is quite challenging and very well laid out.

The owner Alan has been very helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. The staff at reception were also very friendly and helpful. Just one less than positive comment is that it took maintenance 3 days to fix the bedroom heating at a time when it was very cold. Duvets would also be a great addition for the cold nights.

Clean, simple and comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a quiet location on the resort and benefits from air conditioning and wifi. The kitchen has all you need for a holiday and the decor although older in style than some other apartments is well looked after and comfortable. We love this resort and I would stay in this apartment again.

Super location, great venue for children

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our two children. They loved being close to the pool and having the freedom to play football and enjoy the playground near the pool. This meant that my wife and I had the opportunity to read our books, listen to music and enjoy drinks in the pool side bar.

A very enjoyable relaxing and reasonable holiday.

Winter Break at Balaia Golf Village

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious apartment in a quiet area of a golf resort with beautiful grounds. A well equipped kitchen plus 2 south facing sunny balconies. A short walk to the beautiful beaches, and only a 15 minutes walk to restaurants and shops either way in Oura or Olhos. A very helpful owner who quickly resolved any minor issues that arose during our stay. Recommended!
