We are a recently retired couple who live in the UK on the south coast near Southampton. We try to visit the lovely facilities that Balaia Golf Village and the surrounding areas have to offer as often as we can, spending about 6 weeks of the year in Portugal.

Well situated apartment
Just spent a week in this apartment and I cannot fault it in anyway. It is equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday and has a good satellite TV system. It is at the far end of the golf village so is quiet and secluded overlooking landscaped gardens and tree's. It has 2 balconies, one outside the lounge which has table and chairs and a parasol and a smaller one outside of the bedroom. Both catch the sun for most of the day. Enjoyed our stay and have re-booked for next year.
Well equipped, great position, very restful.
The property is very well equipped and in a quiet part of this beautiful complex. During our stay we experienced a minor problem with the hot water supply. Despite the owners being on holiday in Canada at the time, they responded immediately to our emails and the matter was resolved effortlessly. Highly recommended overall.
Great spot and wonderful service!

Balaia is situated near the coast with a host of sandy beaches and attractive coastal walks.
Balaia reception is open 24 hours a day and the staff speak good English and are able to answer most questions for you, book excursions, car hire or taxis, plus golf course visits and a range of other services.
Balaia is ideally positioned for short excursions to the fishing beach at Olhos de Agua and into old Albufeira town, or for excursions along the attractive Algarve coast to Lagos, Loule, Portimao, or Vilamoura with it’s attractive marina and surrounding golf courses. Also within easy reach are water-parks and a Zoomarine-park, both popular with children. To round off your visit, the Algarve Shopping Mall on the N125 provides a selection of fine shops in a very Portuguese style including a multi-screen cinema.
