Third time at BGV, first in this villa which is in a brilliant central location within the complex. Very well appointed with everything you need for a no hassle, relaxing holiday within a lush and well maintained resort.. Air-con very much appreciated at nights after 30+ degrees day. Owners very helpful and answered any questions very quickly - the whole process from making reservation to checking out was without any problems or hassle and staff on-site are always happy to assist with anything as well.

“WOW! A perfect holiday home in a stunning location”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This villa must rate among the best self-catering holiday accommodation I have ever experienced. From the moment you walk in the door it feels like a home rather than a holiday rental. The furnishings and decor are perfect and the villa contains everything you are ever going to need - the only thing you are asked to provide is beach towels. The villa having its own wi-fi connection included is a real bonus. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard with huge fridge/freezer and dishwasher as well as all the small appliances, and there is a washing machine in the utility cupboard. There is a modern TV in the lounge with all the English channels. The master bedroom has a beautiful en-suite bathroom and there is a second equally well-appointed bathroom adjoining the second bedroom. The lounge has a pull-out double sofa bed. There are books, magazines and games, and even things for the pool and beach. We travelled with two young children and the location is perfect for that, with a large grass area at the front to play, a small play area with swings and a slide just a short distance away and visible from the villa and one of the beautiful main pools just below. There are two small patios outside with a table, chairs and sun loungers provided. The pool has a nice snack bar. There is shaded parking right by the villa. The beach realistically is a good 15-minute walk but the road down to it has been upgraded in recent years and there is a very small car park at the bottom. There are other nice beaches nearby. There are also a good selection of restaurants within walking distance as well as the on-site main restaurant and at the Golf Club. We have been to Balaia Golf Village many times before and still find it quiet and restful, a real oasis away from the normal hustle and bustle. The booking process through TripAdvisor was very simple and effective and the owner of the property is extremely helpful, happy to answer any questions you may have.

“Fantastic apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Definately a home from home and very comfortable to stay in. The location is fab, set back slightly from the pool with a large green area which my daughter loved playing on. playground quite near by and the bar metres away (closes at 7pm so not noisy at night). The complex was not overly busy which was lovely. very quite and peaceful. The only downside is we only stayed for a week! we would definitely recommend and be looking at returning in the future!

“Mrs”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed here as a family of 6 for a week. Could not fault it in any way. Buckets,spades, inflatables for children a nice touch. EXCELLENT location within the resort, right by pool 2, pool bar, play park. 15/20 min walk into town with plenty of restaurants to choose from. 10 min walk to the beach. Owners very helpful and were more than happy to assist in booking our transfers from the airport (car seats were supplied so saved us a lot of hassle bringing our own).Have recommended to family/friends and would definitely return again.

“A fantastic week”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a simply fantastic week at Balaia with two teenagers. The resort was extremely well laid out and the staff friendly and helpful. The facilities were great and we were able to book tennis courts every day when we wanted,with very little problem.The villa was perfect both in its location and how well equipped it was. The local beach was very close and not too busy which was great. Mark organised an airport collection which just made everything very hassle free.
A wonderful spot to chill. Thank you.
