This was the 3rd time we stayed at this property, this says it all! Absolutely fantastic, spacious apartment with everything that you need for a self catering holiday! Great location, in front of one of pools, yet, being a corner property, still peaceful. Lovely, friendly and helpful owners.

Resort located in quiet area with 2 beaches just a five minute drive, yet still close to the hussle and bussel of the Oura strip!

Most definitely recommend and will be going back for sure!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second successive year to stay in this property and we were again very happy. It is a real home from home and has all amenities and facilities. Successive tenants tend to leave bits and pieces behind, e.g. cleaning materials, spices, pool toys, etc. which is very convenient on arrival. (Some properties have a policy of throwing them out which is not good).

It is possibly the best located apartment in the complex, just beside the main pool (out of a total of 6 pool areas), as it is easy to come and go from the apartment to the pool without locking up.

The complex itself is immaculately maintained, with lots of green areas and plants, very pleasant to walk around.

There is a good shop in the complex, along with hairdressers and bank ATM.

Evening choices include cafe's /bars down the road, Olhos D'Agua or Albufeira.

A car is probably not necesary but would not be a bad idea.

Excellent apartment and complex!

Great week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week, the weather was atrocious, something really unusual for Portugal at this time of year, but the apartment is excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. It is ideally situated and very child friendly.

We stayed in this apartment towards the end of May 2015.

Booking the apartment was really easy as the owner provided us with all the information we required. He was very quick at responding to emails/queries and was very helpful. The apartment itself sleeps 6 comfortably. It was spacious and contained lots of towels and extra bedding. The kitchen had all the utensils/cutlery and crockery that we needed. The only issue we found was that the oven only had one shelf so cooking a meal for 6 proved to be a bit difficult. Apart from that we had no problems. The TV has English channels and a USB port if you want to watch movies. The location of this apartment was perfect as it is overlooking the pool. During the time that we were there, it was very quiet and we always managed to get a sunbed, all 6 of us! We would definitely stay here again! The golf resort itself is beautiful, there is a shop on site about a 5 minute walk from the apartment which has everything you need.

Best location in Balaia village

  • 4 of 5

Be assured, this ground floor end terraced villa is in one of the best postions in the entire village, located roughly mid-way between the restaurant and golf club-house. The lounge and 2 of the 3 bedrooms all have sliding patio doors out onto the grassy lawn and all directly overlook the swimming pool. And by the way the swimming pool is also one of the best having a shallow toddler pool and a very deep pool (2.4m) for the rest of us. There's also a licenced snack bar right next to the pool, open till around 9pm, a mere 20 yards from the apartment.

Back to the apartment, comfortably sleeps 6, although the third bedroom has no patio doors and is therefore less appealing. The kitchen and laundry room have everything you need for a fully self catered holiday and with two bathrooms, each with a warm shower, ideal all round.

Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was the dodgy fridge door and the old sun loungers, both of which have seen better days.

Overall though, we were delighted and would stay again if/when we go back
