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.

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!

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment far exceeded our expectations. It was clean, spacious and very well equipped. The air conditioning was efficient and the 2 large balconies were lovely. The whole golf resort and the swimming pools were excellent.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was better then we ever expected. The kids loved it and they had great fun playing in the swimming pool. We had everything we need to host dinners and It was a lovely place to wind down on the balcony at night. The apartment was very clean and we slept very well at night. The owner was very helpful in ensuring we had the best stay possible. We all loved the great restaurants and beautiful beeches. They were all in very close and we had a great time exploring the area. I would recommend staying here to anyone. We have already booked it again for June!
