8/10 Very good

Beautiful but with a room for more improvement
The place is beautiful and relaxing, I could stay there for 2 weeks or more because of how close it is to Praia Da Maria Luisa and to the other shops. The restaurants nearby are also cheap but offers good food - fresh fish and delicious kebabs. Though I’m not a fan of the resort’s restaurant which is the Varanda. Also there’s a lot of lovely pools to choose from. The indoor pool area definitely needs more cleaning and jacuzzi was not working. But overall I like it because of how simple but elegant it looks like. It was not too crowded as well when we got there. Also, I believe that the apartments are like a residential places to rent.

6/10 Good

The staff was amazing at the Balaia reception. The cleaning staff was okay, not great. The beds are terrible. Hard as rocks and the pillows are unacceptable. Time for the Balaia rentals to get decent beds and bed sheets and blankets. I will not stay there again .

4/10 Fair

The reception staff were fantastic, super friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. However, all the outdoor pools were unheated and freezing. The indoor pool was tiny and run down. The jacuzzi was lukewarm. The sauna & steak room were being used as a storage facility. The gym was very run down, tiny and did not resemble the photos on Expedia or resort website one bit! The food in the restaurant was appalling - do not put yourself through it! €18 for evening buffet is an absolute joke for what was served. Poor quality food, no labels saying what each item was, limited availability of food and it was cold. We stayed in a superior 1 bed apartment, this was also a great disappointment. Compared to photos online we were put in an older run down apartment that looked nothing like photos we made the booking based on. The bedroom was also damp as well. We asked to see another room and they deliberately showed us one that looked out onto main road that had a fly issue out the back so that we wouldn’t move. All in all, very disappointing - especially for the money we paid! Definitely expected better.
