This is a gorgeous little hotel. Clean and neat. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very clean rooms. Situated at the top of the hill but only a 10-15 to the strip. Shuttle service available or a taxi is 3-4 euros. Definitely go back

A brilliant wee hotel. The rooms were immaculate as was the pool and the area around the pool. The on site cafe did basic grub that was perfectly adequate. Just outside resort right of the roundabout was a great Italian, IL Vesuvio, 2 minutes walk. Great food. Its a 15 min walk to the strip and the old town was...

We stayed here after booking a last minute holiday at the beginning of May. We didn't know what to expect, but on arrival we were very glad we chose here. They are in a quiet location down a road and are set in very peaceful setting. Apartments are spotlessly clean, spacious with everything you need. The grounds of the apartments...

Great little find. Nice big apartments. Pool & pool bar very good for the size of the complex. Very friendly staff. 5 mins drive/25 min walk to Albufeira centre, but within a short walk you start to reach bars & restaurants on the way. There is a local beach 15 mins walk away, but will take longer if you have...

WOW !! Just returned from an absolutely perfect 10 day holiday here, 26/04/14-01/05/14. This holiday cost us £513 TOTAL for 2 adults including a large case in the hold AND the transfers !! (From Teletext Holidays). For us this was heaven, so quiet and tranquil a hotel. Having studied all previous reviews we followed someone else's advice and sent an...

We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Balaia Sol where we stayed in the self catering studio at the back of the hotel. We arrived late ( 1.30am) due to delayed flight but we were welcomed and showed into our room by the night porter who was friendly and helpful. The room itself was spacious, very clean...

Lovely setting - beautiful grounds and gardens. Very well kept. Cobbled courtyard. Most holidaymakers seemed to spen their time just relaxing - either by the pool or outside their apartments. Staff very friendly - in fact just about everyone I came across in Portugal are friendly. Balaia Sol is a little bit isolated - I travelled with elderly mother and...

Perfectly lovely hotel, basic but quaint. Our room had a small balcony but as we were ground floor and were not pool facing we had a gorg little garden area which was nice for sunbathing if the pool got too busy! Great little kitchen area with everything you need. Complex next door has a little campsite type shop with your...

A very nice, relaxing and quiet resort on the outskirts of the main town which suited us perfectly. The complex itself has a nice pool for cooling of, sundeck and bar/cafe for drinks and snacks (although we did not use this it seemed reasonable). The walk to the main high street with shops, bars and restaurants was about 10 minutes...

This is a lovely resort, I really enjoyed my week stay there. Balata Sol is very clean with attention paid to detail. The rooms are very clean I am fussy about bathrooms and I wasn't disappointed not a trace of dirt in the grouting area of the shower, fresh towels every two days and room cleaned also every two days...
