About the Owner

I live in Cornwall with my wife and a very old British blue.

We both work and enjoy sunshine, good food and golf (me mainly) and so Portugal seemed the ideal location to have a property.

Recent stay at Balaia

  • 5 of 5

The best equipped holiday appartment that I have stayed in, this beautiful appartment has everything you could need for a family holiday. The appartment was immaculate and in a perfect location within the resort, being close to one of the pools, the bar/restaurant and reception as well as being close to the shop and gate to the main road, ideal if you hae children or less able family members.

The resort itself is fabulous, was not overly busy during our stay and there was never a problem getting a seat at the many pools.

The owners communicated effectively following our booking and gave us many very useful tips and restaurant recommendations, all of which were really good.

The resort is within walking distance of New Town Albufeira, and taxi service to Old Town was reasonable, reliable but you need to book to avoid queuing, reception staff were very helpful in this respect.

There are some very reasonably priced but excellent restaurants close by without the need to go to the main towns, and there is a bus stop close to the resort.

Overall, an excellent appartment in a great resort , thank you Jim and Mel.

Our Portugal break

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment to be spacious and very well equipped. It is well laid out so we had plenty of room for three adults and two small children. The property was well maintained and clean. The resort itself has lots of facilities with six pools all different and was an enjoyable place to have a stroll around. There are some lovely beaches nearby with great resturants, also many resturants within walking distance. A special mention for the staff who after a disaster with a pushchar wheel were amazing with their help.

Reception will arrange for tranport into Albufeira or other local places. The owners provided us with all the help and information we needed. A recommended place to stay

Perfect facilities and base for us

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four including two teenagers (18 and 16). We don't usually do 'sun holidays' and are more used to taking three weeks to travel around some region of the world. However, this year we could only fit in a week when all of us were free and we all felt like we needed a more relaxed experience. Balaia Golf Village was perfect for us (and none of us are golfers so don't let the 'golf' put you off). The apartment had all we needed with space for four adults, a good kitchen (we always look for an oven as two are coeliacs and baking our own bread is very helpful), two bathrooms and plenty of space in the open lounge area/eating area. The centre staff were excellent. They were very attentive and responded quickly to any queries. We had a hire car and so were able to make short excursions to somewhere each day. Lying by a pool for an entire day would have been too much for us. The towns of Albufeira and Vilamoura are great for a visit especially in the late afternoon and evenings where there are a ridiculous number of restaurants to choose from. Albufeira is an older town with cobbled streets that oozes character and Vilamoura has its restaurants and more up-market shops located around a modern marina. We also visited Fiesa, the largest sand sculpture festival in the world (about half an hour away in car). Driving was very easy as the traffic was very light. The nearest beach is less than 10 minutes walk and there are numerous other ones a little further. All offer facilities for those spending an extended time on the beach e.g. sunbed hire, bar etc.. The Golf Village itself it very clean, beautiful and safe with a choice of a number of very good pools. We didn't really make use of other facilities but there is a 'well-being centre', golf and a small restaurant. All in all we had a great time, couldn't really fault anything and would highly recommend it.

From the Owner

We chose Balaia Golf Village due to the on site amenities and close proximity to Albufeira with its mix of relaxing areas or plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to amble around. By car the apartment is only 45 minutes from Faro airport, 5 minutes to Albufeira Old Town and 20 minutes to Vilamoura.
