car rental needed
The staff were friendly and welcoming but professional. Balaia Sol is one of my favourite places because it is not too big and crowded and I feel completely relaxed there. It is situated about 10 to 15 minutes walk from the town of Albufeira and there is a regular bus service.
The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble we really enjoyed our stay and while there was plenty of peace and quiet wa were only a 20 min walk to the nightlife , which was ideal.
The apartments could benefit having Air-Conditioning installed. we were there in August and it was very hot. 38 degrees ave. This cis the only thing that would put us off going back.
Price was good. Grounds were lovely. Common areas were well kept. Location is good.
The room is dated, but considering the rate, it would not be fair to expect more.
The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the whole of the establishment is kept spotlessly clean. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Balaia Sol to anybody looking for a holiday in the Algarve.
nice quiet location, quaint gardens and surroundings, nice walk into town, about 20-30 mins, basic but clean apartments, good place for relaxing holiday, but still within easy reach of many bars, restaurants and nightlife. 3 nice beaches within easy reach
we arrived around midnight, checked and went straight to bed. due to our late arrival, it was around 9 before we got up next morning, and while showering and getting ready for the day, we thought we had heard the apartment phone ringing over the noise of showers and haridryers, but thought we must have imagined it as who would have been ringing us so early on our first morning. when passing reception on our way out for the day, someone on reception literally shouted "hey, number 15" at us to grab our attention and so we went into reception to see what the fuss was about. the staff member in question was extremely rude to us, and asked us why we had not answered our phone that morning, and demanded to know where we had been or what we had been doing. he then proceeded to demand payment for the room, even though we asked could we pay it on our return that evening, as our credit card was in the safe in our room, and we were just on our way out, but he insisted on being paid in full there and then. the staff member in question was really rude and ignorant, and could really do with learning some manners and some customer relations training. we had the booked the room for 10 nights, we were hardly going to run away and leave all of our belongings behind us. perhaps there has been an incident in the past when someone left without paying, but if this is the case, then they should maybe put a policy in place and let people know that they need to pay on arrival or as early as possible. its not a great first impression on your first day in a place to be yelled and demanded money from. towels were also only replaced 3 times in the 10 days that we were there, and the lighting outside some of the apartments was either very poor or non-existent
Dimensão do apartamento
A sanita estava avariada/entupida, motivo que impossibilitou a sua utilização. Cada vez que era necessário tinhamos que sair do hotel!!!
A tanquilidade do local e a sua envolvente, ali tão perto da movimentada e trepidante zona da Oura.
A limpeza do espaço, nomeadamente o exterior.
As comodidades, o quarto não tinha AC e o mobiliário era de qualidade inferior.
Um lugar bastante tranquilo ideal para descansar.
As condições da cozinha eram insuficientes, pouca loiça e artefactos para elaborar refeições. Os esgotos do apartamento eram de má qualidade.
Local calmo e sossegado suficientemente afastado do centro da cidade para se poder descansar sem grandes barulhos, e relativamente perto da praia mais próxima.
A quase inexistência de iluminação exterior a partir das 00.00h. Dos temporizadores da iluminação que nos deixamas às esturas a meio das escadas. Deveriam rever estas situações que colocam quetões de segurança.
Boa localização, aprox 1,5 km dos bares e discotecas de Areias de São João. Zona calma.
Ausência de ar condicional.
Limpeza muito cuidada não só nos apartamentos mas em todo o complexo. Grande simpatia, prestabilidade e profissionalismo dos funcionários e gerente. Cozinhas bem equipadas e com material em bom estado. Local muito calmo e óptimo para relaxar. Bem localizado. Sistema de vídeo vigilância.
Embora não tenha sido necessário, o quarto não tinha ar condicionado. (Mesmo com 38º cá fora, o apartamento no rés do chão manteve-se sempre muito fresco e abaixo dos 20º)
Local calmo, sossegado e tranquilo; excelente para descansar. Reservámos T0 e deram-nos um T1. Todos são simpáticos e disponiveis.
Embora sossegado, ouve-se um pouco a água a correr nas canalizações, mas nada de mais. Podiam pôr uma cobertura (como tem no pingo doce da rotunda das minhocas) no parque de estacionamento para os carros não ficarem tão quentes ao sol. A internet é cara, deveria ser grátis ou, pelo menos, bem mais barata.
