Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had an excellent stay there. The staff are very nice and friendly. The pool area is great. It will be a lot better when the pool bar and shop is open, which is due around June. We would definitely go again and always tell people how nice it and that they should visit there

We stayed start of October we where self catering. The pool is great! Easy enough to get a lounger. it’s very standard for self catering as we only had one cooking pot and no washing up utensils - we had to wait on the cleaner washing them for us..

Just going home after a 2 week stay at babalu. Il do good points first * The pool is absolutely beautiful and the area around pool is spotlessly clean. * Rooms got cleaned about 4 times a week and cleaners are lovely. * Not too good points are *No pool bar or shop. Knowhere to get an ice cream for kiddies. * Reception staff are not very pleasant. If you ask for something for room they are rude. * Wi fi is useless. Paid €32 for family WiFi but only one phone worked. * Residents at this apartment seem to rule the roost and think they own the whole apartments. Very rude people who think they are special. * Rules are set out but lifeguard chooses which rules to follow. * No music. No holiday atmosphere here at all. The center across the road has 2 big supermarkets and are stocked very well. However the europa center itself is very run down and scruffy. A basic apartment that is clean with lovely pool. However we won't be returning as there are so many other nice hotels in puerto rico.

100 euro deposit on check in. Checking out nobody on reception to get deposit back absolutely shocking. Still waiting on a reply from them. A row off security for chat at midnight on balcony but where were security at 5am when people were jumping in pool? Terry towelling mattress protector in that heat is this a joke? Loose handle in shower Have lovely big balconies but you have to pay 1 euro a day for. Grumpy and almost embarrassed reception staff Mixture of owned and rented apartments doesn't make for a good balance. Owners think they can do what they want Really poor sockets re plugs did not fill us with confidence at all Shower warm for seconds then freezing all times of day. Is like fort knox trying to get in front door. We won't be back and if the 100 euros aren't forthcoming we will be pay them a visit in January when we are stay different apartments. Please avoid

Not all is as it seems or you might expect at Apartmentos Babalu. Air conditioning is not included. Fans are not included. Umbrellas on the patio are not included. The 'pool bar' advertised has been derelict for 3 years. The 'shop' advertised has been derelict for 3 years. You have to pay extra to rent a portable air conditioning unit, or otherwise pay extra to rent a fan. You have to pay extra to rent an umbrella for the balcony of your apartment. I booked through Expedia and the information about the hotel still states 'Bar' and 'Grocery/convenience store'. This is false. I've included some screenshots of the advert, as it still is today. Checking with other online booking operators, I do notice the information has been updated there, so I will be worried about booking through Expedia in future, if information is not up to date on their site. The staff explained that the pool bar has been closed because of and since 'because of covid'. The area has an incredible amount of other hotels, I dare say all with pool bars, despite covid. The apartments have no air conditioning. A portable unit can be hired for EUR 15 per day. That's an incredible amount of money for something which is really needed in such a hot place. We had to hire a fan, and this cost around £40 for 2 weeks! I realised after that I could have purchased the same fan for about £20, in one of the nearby shops, and could have just left it in the apartment after my stay, while still being in pocket. It is pretty desparate to force guests to hire fans, and really takes advantage. There are different lifeguards through the week. On Wednesday and Thursday, the lifeguard sits away from the pool and spends all day looking at his phone. One one of the days, a child slipped out of her rubber ring into the deeper end of her pool. She could not swim. The girl's grandparents had to rush into the pool to save her. This was directly in front of the lifeguard, less than 10 metres away, but he didn't even notice. He sat there the whole time looking at his phone, and didn't notice a thing. On the Thursday the lifeguard would disappear for 2 or 3 hours at a time. I was curious to check where he was, and found him behind the derelict pool bar building, which is beside the pool. He was sitting on the opposite side of this derelict pool bar, facing in the opposite direction and listening to loud music on his phone. So, there was a large building between him and the pool and he was facing away in the opposite direction to the pool! There could have been an incident in the pool and it would not have been possible for him to have seen or heard any problem. If Babalu are employing a lifeguard, which presumably does not come for free (to them or inevitably their guests), then they really should take it seriously. Otherwise, I do fear there may be a serious incident in the pools at Babalu. The pools are very nice. Lovely and warm and a nice island to sit on and dry or relax between swims. There are 2 beaches nearby, which are a 20 minute walk down a very steep and winding road. It is not realistic for a family to walk to the beaches from the apartments, but the taxis are quick and very reasonable, at around EUR 5 per trip. There are lots of bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but we could only find one restaurant which was authentically Spanish! Most of the bars and restaurants have menus dominated by fried food, bacon and eggs, burgers, chips, pizzas etc. and there is wall to wall football on television screens in English and Irish pubs. If you like that sort of thing, that's great. If not, you will have to explore and take taxis to find other bars and restaurants which are authentically Spanish. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The apartments seem to be cleaned, every day.

After travelling most the day We turned up late at night on arrival we paid our €100 deposit which isnt advertised anywhere but at the hotel. We headed to the room walking down the corridor you could see it wasn't very well looked after. On opening the door using a choice of 2 keys one of which didn't even fit the door. We turned the light on and the apartment was filthy with hair's all over the floor and dirt around the fridge in the kitchen area. On going into the bathroom there were pubic hair's on the floor as well as grime around the toilet bowl and just felt horrid by this time my partner was in tears we had paid alot of money to be there we were truly disappointed. The next morning we decided we would have to find somewhere else to stay. after realising the shop was shut down. The pool bar was never open. After packing up ready to leave we checked out with a very arrogant man that shrugged the fact we were checking out not happy. I wouldn't ever stay again.

Came in June. Swimming pool closed the entire time we was there. The place was like a building site. We was not informed of this prior othetwise we would have changed apartments. On-site shop closed, on-site pool bar closed and onsite pool cafe closed. Reception not helpful at all & on checking out they lost our €100 deposit. Basically making out like we hadn’t paid it even though we had the receipt. She kept us there for 25 mins whilst she made several phone calls to god knows who whilst our transfer was waiting for us. Eventually she found it and gave it back to us, because we was not leaving without it! I would never come here again. We are not fussy people, but this was one of the worst places stayed

We came away for my 50th birthday the bar near the pool was closed we couldn’t get a sun lounger around the pool even though we went down at 10.30 as it say we cannot reserve then to find they had all been taken by Spanish family who had been aloud to reserve them even though most didn’t use them until after lunch. Rooms were not very clean and a deposit was taken when we arrived but this wasn’t advertised when I booked.

What a great little find. If you're worried about coming here because of the reviews.....don't be. The pools are open, clean and the place is clean and tidy. Will edit on return for more info.
