          This was our 4th time at the Balaia Mar - although the first time on all inclusive and in a studio apartment. We were very pleased with our choice. The only thing we would recommend is more English TV channels - and free WiFi.

          Hi,I'm thinking of staying here in September. I would like to know is there any difference between booking All Inclusive at Balaia Mar Hotel compared to All Inclusive at Balaia Apartments. Would there be access to same restaurants, bars,pools etc. We would still be able to book day trips? Also what is the weather like in late September? Thanks
