Apartments were lovely and clean we stayed in room 1 which was a 1 bed apartment and our room was cleaned nearly everyday. The decor of the apartments is...

Have just returned from these beautiful apartments in Albufeira, immaculately clean and tidy and a great size, lovely pool and sunbathing area, staff very helpful, and very peaceful but only a 10 minute stroll to the strip and an abundance of bars and resteraunts to choose from. Will definately be returning

Lovely, quiet and restful. Everything was clean and tidy with 4 cleans a week, suitable for most peoples needs I would assume as there seemed to be a fair mix of holiday makers here. Staff were professional and lovely, however we were charged 1 euro each phone call we wanted to make and the staff seemed embarrassed about this, seemed...

We have stayed at Balaia Sol several times and it is always wonderful there. Clean rooms, helpful staff, and lovely pool area. We usually go out of season and it is very peaceful and quiet. It is far enough away from the busy areas but close enough if you want to get a taxi there. We will continue to come...

Resort itself was fab but out of the way and if you wanted a taxi they asked for €1 to call one for you. It said the room was cleaned 4 times a week but we got there Mon and only got a new bin bag and toilet roll on Friday. Although it was self catering you are not allowed...

Had a lovely stay here. Rooms really clean if a little dated. It's a 15 min walk to the strip and approx 50 mins to old town... we walked from the beach at the bottom of the strip right across the rocks to old town.. was far nicer than the roads. Lovely little place though... only thing I would say...

Booked this in December 2016 and got a fabulous price, was a little put off by some of the negative reviews but have to say one of the most relaxing holidays I have had in recent years. Room 12 overlooked the pool (not heated) and gardens, the staff were efficient and friendly and explained everything we needed to know. Complex...

The Balaia Sol was the perfect location for our week in Portugal. It was so very peaceful and friendly, with all we needed for our holiday. Accommodation was superb - most clean and comfortable. Towels were changed and bathroom was cleaned regularly. Balaia Sol is conveniently located as it is just a short walk to local restaurants and supermarkets. There...
