About Beth Gevell
Mother of three and visit Balaia every year. It is what I would call "an easy" holiday with children and stress free. I love the place and know that you will too.
Beth Gevell purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Beth Gevell chose Albufeira
The property was purchased before it was even built "off plan" and we have visited many many times since. It is in a great central location, easy to get to some great spots. I love the fact that the reception staff speak English and are very friendly and happy to help. You can book any kind of excursion with them. There is a fantastic water park nearby and the children absolutely love it. Every day they can explore the six different swimming pools.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment is situated near the Reception, Restaurant, Beauty Salon and shop so it is easy to just pop out in the morning to get your hot freshly made croissant, chocolate brioche or bread as well as all the supplies you would need from a supermarket. The beach is just a 10 minute walk away and it is stunning. Taxi's are ordered via reception and take minutes to arrive... it is quick and simple and just 7 euros to the old town which has the most amazing restaurants and stunning beaches. This kids loved swimming with the dolphins last holiday, all booked up by reception and a time they will NEVER forget, my son loves the fishing and my daughters enjoyed the trip through the caves. We went on a absolutely fantastic trip on our last visit where the boat takes us looking for dolphins in the wild, we found them, they swam around our boat and then they let us jump in the sea and have a swim to cool us down, it was just heartwarming and incredible. We then visited one of the best beaches in the world through a little cave, it was so amazing, we didn't stop at the beach but were able to get some awesome photos, it really was a wonderful adventure for the whole family.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great find and would definitely recommend.
Little gem of a property. Extremely clean, beautiful surroundings in close proximity to restaurants and beach. Would definitely visit again.
Lovely apartment, perfect family holiday.
Very spacious and well equipped apartment on the immaculate Balaia golf village resort. Pool just a few steps away. Gorgeous beach and good selection of restaurants a 10 minute walk away. Beth was great to deal with. Thank you !
I am so so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, hope to hear from you again soon. Best wishes Beth
Great place to holiday
Lovely apartment, great complex. Six pools to choose from, one right by the apartment. Lots of children's activities to join in with. Really nice food at the restaurant and plenty of sangria by the pool! Easy taxi transfer from the airport and into town. Beach 10 minute walk away. Supermarket a couple of minutes walk away and everything you need in the apartment. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
Fabulous complex -ideal for a relaxing holiday (or more energetic if required!) in the sun
We stayed here in June and were very impressed by the complex- lovely to walk round, very pretty and relaxed. 6 pools to choose from which in June always had sunbeds free for us. The reception were very helpful and the property was ideally situated for when we wanted to go out to the beach and for visiting the local bars/cafes/restaurants etc (of which there were plenty) as it was close to the entrance.
Cannot fault it (apart from the charge for WIFI which we thought was steep so went to the local bars who had free WIFI)
So pleased you had a great time. I'm in conversation with them about the wifi so hopefully next year will be much less if not free. Best wishes and looking forward to booking you in next year. Beth :)
Excellent accomodation in Albufeira
The Balaia Golf Village has several swimming pools, well adapted for children. The apartments are surrounded by lovely trees and plants. This apartment is well located, at 5 minutes of walking distance from reception, mini market, tennis courts and 3 swimming pools. Kitchen is well equiped, found plenty of toys for the children to play in the water (I think this was an extra), also has laundry maschine. To come back if possible.
The nearest beach is about a 10 minute walk away, it has the most amazing restaurant there. The old town is a short taxi drive away (approx 7 euros). Here you will find stunning views and beaches to die for! At reception you can book all times of trips from swimming with the dolphins to big game fishing, boating through the caves to paragliding... it is so much fun for all the family.
The airport is 35 minutes from Balaia. I will be happy to arrange your taxi to collect you from the airport on your arrival (approx 45 euros). Such an easy holiday for the children as a short flight, short drive to villa and smooth transfers.
As an added service, we are able to arrange a taxi from your home to the airport (subject to area). Please contact us to check if you would qualify for 10% discount. Or contact directly on 07960 012839 for a quote.
The town is full of great restaurants along the sea front and some great shops and markets. I very rarely hire a car as the taxi is cheap (7 euros to the old town) and you don't have to worry about parking or having a drink. The strip, for the more adventurous and party goers is also nearby. Vilamoura Marina is a lovely place to visit and just a taxi ride away.
Two main huge supermarkets are local, from reception they will order any taxi's that you may require and the taxi ranks are outside the supermarkets to take you back home. There are plenty of activities you can book, from fishing to swimming with the dolphins, all available to book at reception from the fantastic English speaking staff who are there to help you.
