Relaxing family holiday in the lovely surroundings
Just returned from our amazing family holiday in the Balaia residence, a fabulous duplex apartment in a private complex with lovely surroundings of a communal pool and well maintained gardens.
The apartment was surprisingly larger than we expected which was well equipped for a self catering accommodation including an outdoor BBQ.
The apartment was close to some fabulous resuraunts, attractions and supermarkets although we used the minimarket connected to the neighbouring hotel for the daily essentials.
We visited Aqualand, Vilamoura Marina and the Albufeira Old Town all around 15/20min journey and had a fantastic time on each occasion.
Overall we had a best holiday and already planning our return next year.
Many thanks to Tracey, Ralph and Simon for all your help.
Perfect family holiday. Gorgeous grounds, amazing pool and immaculate accommodation
Lovely villa, with everything we needed. Perfect, peaceful location with pretty gardens and amazing pool. Would recommend to friends and family. Lovely beaches close by. 19 month old daughter loved being able to run around in the garden and we enjoyed sitting outside having BBQ's in the evening
This was our 4th or 5th time back and yet again it didn't let down.... The house is fab, has everything you need for a great relaxing holiday. The redesign of the new balcony garden is wonderful, we made very good use of it every evening for dinner and watching sun go down. Pool and gardens are alwAys quiet enough that you feel you have it all to yourself. This house is a def must for anybody looking for a great relaxing getaway! Credit also to Simon and Marie (who manage it locally) for their help with anything and everything! We much prefer to have a car when staying here but there are enough shops etc locally to manage if not. Locally beach is fab too. Would never hesitate to return for another great break.
Perfect apartment with all that you need for a relaxing holiday. Well equipped, only 5 - 10 mins away from the restaurants, beach and supermarket. On the nights we didn't eat out, we would make use of the BBQ out on the patio.
The beach was clean and not over crowded but plenty of water sports available plus sunbeds and parasols to hire.
The pool at the apartment perfect to relax beside or have a gentle swim and quiet., most of the time only us were using it.
Would definitely rebook!
We absolutely loved this Apartment, very spacious, clean and well equipped. The complex was nice and quiet and most days we had the pool to ourselves, it was very relaxing. There was nice bars and restaurants a walk away, but if you wanted something more livelier it was only a taxi journey away into Alberfuria old town where there was lots of restaurants , bars and street entertainers. Owners Tracey & Ralph were very helpful with our booking and Simon & Marie who looked after the apartment were lovely. Would definetly recommend this to family and friends.
