Guestbook comments from the owner

We are an elderly couple in our seventies and have just spent 2 weeks here. The apartment was clean light and was supplied with everything we needed. My husband is a golfer and was in his element, having the driving range on one side and the golf course on the other. Although a little long for us we managed to walk to the local shops and the beaches. There is also plenty to do in the complex as well. We will be coming back to this apartment. Carole Redditch.

This was our first holiday that was not package deal and we loved it. The apartment was probably in one of the best positions in the village. The pool was 50m away and the golf club house was next door. The apartment was perfect and usually very quiet considering the time of year and the description was very good. There are many good restaurants within a 10 minute walk and Albufeira was close and had very good night life. I would recommend the apartment to anyone and we will probably return in the very near future!

The apartment was very well presented, bright clean and well furnished.On arrival a bottle of water in the fridge would have been appreciated, also a spare toilet roll and a bottle of cleaner for the sinks and toilets. The lack of the sun bed and mattresses was a disappointment, but still we enjoyed our holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and we are really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday staying in our apartment. Other than the roll in the dispenser we did supply an extra roll for each bathroom. As we explained to you, Balaia only ever supply 2 sunloungers with their apartments but we being conscientious Owner's supply 4. Unfortunately prior to your arrival one of them went "missing", it was reported to the office and they were going to check around for us.

I asked for a quiet relaxing holiday and I got just that.

  • 5 of 5

I asked for a quiet relaxing holiday and I got just that and it came with all the comforts of home. Apartment was lovely, it was clean and had lots to offer in terms of amenities and location. The apartment is located in the quiet part of the village by the Driving Range with a beautiful pool to use very close by there are also 5 more pools around the complex which we also used. The staff on the complex are very helpful and the owners of this apartment were great for local info, arranging a private transfer and returning messages. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed previously in Balaia Golf Village, so we knew that the area was beautiful and in a very good location. The apartment was very spacious and clean and it had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped, although we only had breakfast at the apartment.

Yvonne and Peter are a lovely couple and responded very quickly. We will hopefully return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. We were very pleased to here that you found it clean and well equipped. You were a little concerned about a lack of air conditioning and although it was unseasonably excessively hot I am glad to hear you agreed the apartment remained quite cool. We look forward to receiving you again.

The owners, Peter was extremely helpful in the booking procedure and Yvonne had cleaned and presented the apartment really nice. Sat next to the driving range and a nearby pool it was a quiet area. Couldn't fault it really and would definitely return. Thanks for making it such an enjoyable holiday.
