We have just returned from Da Balaia where we stayed for a week. We loved the holiday and had a great time. We stayed with out 2 & 3 year olds. We did not use the childrens club although others gave good reports. We could not fault this hotel - we found it to be stylish and chic , the food fantastic , a very civilized all inclusive service. Meal times were easy with children with an amazing selection of food and drinks. clean , pleasant dining areas with lots of high chairs.
The pool was a little chilly but our children were still in it lots and enjoyed it . The beach is directly in front of the hotel and is gorgeous - club med has its own area with loungers and shade. No need to pack beach towels as all provided as is cot bedding, hairdryers and there was even a bottle warmer and baby bath in our room. Great entertainment in the evening - our little ones loved the childrens dancing in the bar - very sweet. Great afternoon tea , crepes and ice creams in the afternoon! All in all a great place. We will be back!
