The Apartment
The apartment is a beautiful 2 bedrooms air conditioned apartment on the top floor. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with bath and shower over as well as its own access to the terrace. All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes with plenty of hanging and drawer space. The bedrooms are well equipped with all you would expect of superior accommodation. There is a large flat screen television with all satellite channels and a dvd player.

In our apartment, the kitchen features all modern conveniences including full size oven and hob with extractor hood, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, electric juicer etc. There is a full size washing machine and separate tumble dryer located in a small utility room.

The lounge/dining room has a satellite equipped TV, typical portuguese seating for up to 6, a feature fireplace, dining table for 2 to 6 people, coffee table and access to a large fully equipped private terrace (loungers, table and chairs, sunshade, etc). The lounge sofa converts into a comfortable double bed.

The Complex
Imagine....tumbling out of bed and walking just a few yards to the clubhouse and first tee. When you've finished your round on this little gem of a 9 hole par 3 course, take a leisurely dip in one of the 6 outdoor pools close by.... or perhaps a workout in the gym followed by a few lengths of the indoor pool or laze in its corner Jacuzzi. Or perhaps even a session in the steam room and a relaxing massage. Later, take a little tennis or a bucket of balls on the 50 bay driving range. Want to improve your game?... at Balaia you can take lessons from the professional at the village's own golf school. and your family might prefer a quieter existence; taking a leisurely breakfast on the terrace listening to the 'thwack' of driver on ball as others work out their frustrations. Then a gentle walk to one of the beautiful nearby beaches - Sta Eulalia and Maria Luiza beaches are just a few hundred metres away - for an afternoon of sun, sea and siesta. Later, you can while the night away in one of the many bars, restaurants and clubs in the nearby bustling resort of Albufeira or take a stroll to the beautiful 'A Varanda' restaurant in the village. This village offers the perfect setting for a wonderful family holiday.

Family from Eastbourne, United Kingdom Jun 2022

Unbelievable place to stay. The location, the site facilities, on top of what we had in the apartment was way above our expectations. A huge thank you to Sean for his understanding and facilitating us through the very difficult lockdown periods and eventually giving us a perfect getaway. We will be trying to get back there ASAP as we love that special part of Portugal, and it was made so easy for us by the many coms we had with Sean who was so helpful and efficient.

Sean,,, that BBQ you have is amazing. It was put to good use and as a chef I could not believe how great it was to use. I want one!!

Thanks again Sean

Reply from Sean

Thanks Mark. Glad to be of service.


Family from Gorinchem, Netherlands Jun 2022

As before, we again enjoyed the apartment. All facilities are available. Quiet and nice view overlooking the golf practice field. Good BBQ. The sofa could use an update.


Family from Cheltenham, United Kingdom Jul 2019

Another great holiday here at Balaia and as usual Sean was a communicative owner who helped and was responsive - his place is great and clean and we were appreciative. The area is fantastic and we have been to the same place 5 years running now and will be back next year!!


Family from Cheltenham, United Kingdom Jul 2018

Fantastic stay here - 5th time on this resort but first time with this owner and very pleased with everything and good communication
Minor gripes: electric kept tripping out and could not get bed settee to open up but never spoilt our fantastic 16 night holiday
Thanks will come back!


Family from Canvey Island, United Kingdom Aug 2016

An excellent apartment that is ideally positioned if you want to play golf. Overlooking the driving range my teenage son was always entertained either hitting golf balls on the range or in the pool, which is a 2 minute walk. The surrounding area is very quiet and the staff very friendly. Whatever time of day I went to the pool I always got a sunbed. This is my 6th visit to the complex and I will definitely be visiting again.


Couple from Reading, United Kingdom Jun 2016

Wow....had a amazing holiday here everything you could want or need.
We loved it and would most definitely return.
Communication from the owner was brilliant.....thank you so much for a fantastic holiday.
