Disappointing Balaia Golf Village
Our first apartment although renovated smelled of mould and mildew and had no sunlight. The second room was sunny but not renovated - that is OK but the level of cleanliness in the kitchen, on the headboards, on woodwork, etc. was terrible. The sofa was so bad it should have been thrown out long ago. And since we changed rooms, we were not allowed to have the basket with dish soap so I washed dishes with shampoo!

Loved it (mostly)
Beautiful property, apartments great size and super clean, staff were amazing ! Little bit of a let down was only one main bar which was a bit on the expensive side compared to other bars. addition of another bar with a better variety of menu would be a major selling point

Weekend away
Wonderful weekend with friends. We all have kids ranging from one year old up to 14 and it's perfect for all. The rooms are clean and spacious with everything provided. Golf course was a bonus. Swimming pools are great and staff at pool bar and clubhouse really friendly. Check in and check out was not so good. Queued up for ages outside in the hot sun before being allowed in. Then staff were not so helpful and friendly but they were clearly rushed off their feet. Overall a great place to stay. Definitely be back!
