A super villa - spacious and o so comfortable
We thought this was a lovely villa - very spacious and although there were only 3 of us, thought there was plenty of space for 6-8 people . Good communication prior to visit and I must say very clean on arrival . Helen the manager was very good and took us round the villa to show us how everything worked etc.
Enjoyed the jacuzzi which we had heated - we didn't have the pool heated for our stay - although it was cold getting in , I must say it was lovely once in and for us glad we didn't pay for the heating - some others may have a different opinion ( we did visit July so it was hot ) . Enjoyed playing table tennis - decent table and bats, and also chaps enjoyed the games inside.
There was an issue with the light by the pool during our stay - maintenance chap came the same day and all fixed very quickly. Always a sign that they keep the villa maintained and keen to ensure everything is tip top.
Local area was nice , with some lovely restaurants in the village . We had a hire car and I must say I think you need one really. May have struggled re the shopping otherwise.
My only suggestion is that we bought a couple of floats for the pool - left them behind so hoping others enjoy their use - for the price of the villa I do think that perhaps this sort of item should be provided. Also a small welcome pack would be a nice touch.
We had a great time and if you book this villa it really is a super place to stay.

Very large property with lovely grounds
We found the property to be lovely. The rooms were huge and the grounds were amazing. It had everything you needed for your stay and it was really clean. We took 3 children with us and they loved all the extra games, like the table tennis and pool tables. We had a great pool competition one evening. Helen and the team were really nice. We took full advantage of their taxi service which was good value for money and flexible. I have taken one star away because it was a bit more remote than we are used to and took about 15 minutes to walk to the nearest shops and supermarket. If you like it quiet though this a really good villa.
Many thanks Clare for your review. We are very pleased to know that you all enjoyed your stay and found the villa clean with everything you needed. Good to know you all enjoyed the games too! Great to know that you also appreciated our services and used our mini bus as a taxi. From all the team here, Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back again one day.
Clean and spacious and a quiet location Would come back in a heartbeat
Helen our villa manager was always available for questions , giving us peace of mind throughout

The place to go for fantastic holiday
We spent two weeks in this great villa and we enjoyed every minutes there.
It offers everything you wish for and even more and all the team is really friendly and helpful.
The villa itself contains 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one on suite). All bedrooms are very good size and the beds are really comfortable. There are plenty of storages which is really helpful. The bathrooms are very good size too and there is a massive bath in the downstairs one.
The living area is amazing and we all enjoyed the pool table and the football table. The kids enjoyed the PS4 (keeping in mind that you need to pay to use it but not too expensive and it is a good way to manage the playing time). The kitchen is really nice and well equipped.
We also used the annex bedroom which is just perfect, well equipped and plenty of space.
The swimming pool is just perfect, very large, it gives lots of space to play or swim. The shallow part is in a shaded area which is great for the kids at the hottest hours. The Jacuzzi was a new addition this year and it was wonderful to have is after long days of visiting. Our advice is to ask for both the swimming pool and the Jacuzzi to be heated.
Sunbeds are really comfortable and it was nice to be able to have some shade from parasols or from the lovely palm trees.
It is really nice to have a dining area and BBQ near the pool as well as an extra shower room and toilets there. There is also a fridge which is really convenient to avoid going back to the villa each time.
We also really enjoyed the outside dining area near the villa at evening time when it is a bit more windy.
The garden is beautifully managed and the view is really nice.
One of the best thing about this villa as well is that it is located in an area which is almost the middle of the Algarve so you can easily access all villages and areas to visit. There are so much to do in the area, you can organise some very busy days but when you come back to the villa, you will enjoy a really peaceful and relaxing environment which is so nice to make your holiday just perfect.
The villa is close to lots of restaurants and shops, supermarket which is really convenient.
Thank you so much Nuno and Helen, we had an amazing time.
Wishing you all the best,
Emilie and family
Thank you so much for your detailed review of this villa. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay and all the facilities that the villa offered. We certainly think you are correct in recommending the pool and Jacuzzi to be heated – this does make a difference, particularly for families with children. This villa does have a great BBQ and exterior dining area and we really appreciate to know that you found the beds comfortable too. From all the team here, thank you again and we do hope to be able to welcome you back one day in the future.
We booked this villa for a short break with friends before christmas, it had an amazing open plan kitchen and living space with all the essensials, there was a pool table, table football, table tennis which kept people entertained. The pool area was really great complete with outdoor kitchen complete with BBQ and pizza oven. We had the pool heated which was warm anough to swim even in december. I would say that the listing for this villa does not do it justice and it exceeded our expectations. We would love to come back again. Thanks for a lovely stay.
Great Holiday - Great Villa!
We stayed at Villa Quintinha da Balaia from Saturday 19th September 2015 for one week.
When we read the review below we were a little bit nervous about the “warm algae”, “broken doors” and “30 minute walk to the beach” but we all left the villa convinced they must have stayed somewhere else!
The villa is fantastic and we had a great time experiencing no issues. Belita the Villa Manager was very helpful upon arrival giving us a tour of the grounds (we couldn’t believe it was all ours) and giving us some information on the villa along with a good pack with local information in it. Inside the villa all of the rooms are very spacious and we enjoyed a game of pool in the evening before heading out.
We spent most of our time by the fantastic pool using the outdoor kitchen and BBQ area for lunch and setup a net and court by the side of the pool for the bat and ball etc. The temperature of the pool was fine and the depth was ideal for perfecting our diving!
We were let down one evening by the local taxi company but found another local company called Expose who offer a taxi/shuttle service. Very friendly driver and reasonable prices, they are good for a big group as they have larger vehicles so we were all able to travel together. We also used them to book a day trip to the water park which was a great day out.
Our flight on home wasn’t until 8pm but we were fortunate to be able to use the pool area for the day because the next family weren’t due to arrive until later that evening, whilst I appreciate this was purely down to luck it was a nice touch and allowed us to have one final chilled out day by the pool.
I would recommend the villa for anyone that is looking to spend time together as a large group, the grounds are very safe and it has so much space.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are very happy to learn you have enjoyed your stay with us so much. It is great to receive this positive feedback.
Thank you once again for sharing your experience, and we look forward to welcome you back to Villa Quintinha.
