A lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here twice - once with my family, and then again the year later with my friends (all in our 20's!). This apartment really is a home from home. It is clean, spacious and nicely decorated.... with sun loungers and a swimming pool only metres away! There is everything to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable including a golf course, restaurant, tennis courts, supermarket and numerous swimming pools! The beach is only a few minutes walk away and the resort is in a perfect location for easy trips to Albufeira Old Town and Vilamoura.

Would love to stay here again soon!

Fantastic Resort & Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days. The apartment was big, clean and spacious - accommodating our family of 5. The site was fantastic - 6 pools in total.(one at the end of the apartment block!) There were also facilities for table tennis, volleyball 4 tennis courts & a 9 hole golf course! The apartment had a rubber ring which my son made great use of, table tennis rackets and balls, bat & ball, a deck chair and spare umbrella which we used on the beach nearby.

We found a quicker walk to the beach through the Alfagar Apartments across the road. If you walk down through the "village" and take right at the tennis courts the view just appears - fantastic!! Follow the pathway which leads to the beach. The Alfagar has slides which we used too!! We also used the bbq a few times aswell. There were also two loungers & cushions which meant you could lie out at the apartment! I would advise hiring a car as there is so much to see. Praia da Rocha beach, Alvor, Portimao, Quarteria and Villamoura Marina - fabulous!!

Thanks Amanda for a great apartment!

Very Nice Apartment for Summer vacations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment in August 2011 with our two children. The apartment is very nice, clean and spacious. Our children just loved it. Specially the body boarder!!!

It is very close to the beach, restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities. It has a golf course very close by and several pools to choose from.

We definitely enjoyed our stay.

Our Summer Holiday - 2009

  • 5 of 5

For our 2009 summer holiday we (my husband and I ) rented A. Robinson's apartment in Albufeira where I can honestly say it was outstanding. The apartment was clean and spacious with lovely furnishing. It was close to all amenities ie supermarkets, several pools and sea. In the evenings if we did not want to stay and dine in the complex then it was just a short stroll to the local strip of varied restaraunts with thier delicious local delicacies.We found the complex itself was quiet ideal for couples or families alike.

Location

Nearest Beach
300 Metres
Car: not necessary

The Balaia Golf Village with its testing 9-hole Golf Course, sits between the pretty seaside fishing village of Olhos da Agua and the golden sandy beaches of Praia D'Oura. The low level layout of the resort includes extensive well maintained gardens, mature trees, and plenty of areas for both sun worshippers and those seeking some shade. Peace and quiet for those that want it; golf tennis and a choice of swimming pools for those who want to be more active. It is a comfortable ten minutes ride to lively Albufeira and within easy reach of Vilamoura, Vale de Lobo and many main Golf Courses in the Algrave. It is approximately a 2hr 45 min flight from UK airports to Faro and around a 35 minute drive from Faro Airport to Balaia Golf Village.

Golf: Balaia Golf Village has its own award winning, testing, executive 9 hole course, with distances ranging from 67 to 160 metres. You must wear proper golf shoes fitted with soft spikes to play this course. There is no handicap requirement. Once you have a confirmed reservation for the apartment, you can book tee times with the Golf Shop, in person or by phone (00351) 289 5700 442. There is a driving range, a practice bunker, chipping and putting greens. An impressive club house with a large terrace overlooking the first tee, has a restaurant, reception, pro shop, club hire, trolleys and lockers. Golfing lessons in a group or individually are available. There are several international standard courses within 15km of the village. Again you must wear proper golf shoes fitted with soft spikes to play these courses. They all have handicap requirements, generally (but not universally) 28 for men and 36 for ladies and you must present your authorised handicap card.
