We were here one week enjoying the all inclusive package wich we were satisfied with. Nice hotel, good rooms, very friendly and hard working personel in the restaurant and the bar. The island is a hidden pearl. Fantastic beach with lovely sand and clean fresh Atlanticwater, a challenging golfcourse and great walking and biking.

We had a fine week here in the apartment with a sea view. Housekeeping was lacking, actually only came in late in the afternoon, if so. No smiles from personnel apart from two guys in each of the bars. All inclusive concept rendered a noisy dinner hall, with 1-2 of 4 coffee machines constantly broken. Nobody seemed to bother repairing...

My wife and I visited this lovely island with a vennepar. The stay was very satisfactory and we enjoyed our acquired "all inclusive". Very interesting food with super service. Fine cleaning and in general a functioning hotel. Lovely golf course that we played every day during our week stay.

An excellent hotel with a good position close to the sea and the golf course. Buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner was very good. Hotel rooms perfect. Spa could have been more interesting. The golf course is excellent - challenging, impressive and in good condition.

Loved this spa hotel. The room was very nice with a side sea view, very clean and modern, and the staff were accommodating. The room didn't have a kettle or microwave, but it was not really needed as I took an all inclusive package for 2 nights. The food was excellent and buffets extremely varied and plentiful. The spa was...

Stayed for a week with my wife and teenage son. Nice spacious suite with good beds but sparse furniture. Staff is friendly and smiling - even at busy times. Allthough off-season in february the hotel was full of Danish guests. It did put a little pressure on the mainbar and the restaurant, but it was handled very well. The food...

My family and I spent the most relaxing and wonderful time at Vila Baleira. We were there for New Years. The hotel is exquisite, the staff is wonderful, the food is delicious and the location is beautiful. There's so much to do and that everyone will enjoy. We're definitely coming back during the summer holidays.
