Just came back from a week's stay at De Balaia, and found the experience relaxing and full of things to do at the same time. The staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant, and the food and dining arrangements beyond compare.
The room was spacious and exceptionally clean, and the separate toilet and bathroom facilities were very useful..There were a mix of people there from young children, young couples, middle age through to elderly. The surrounding areas were beautiful and easy to get to and the choice of shopping areas great, from gypsy markets to hypermarkets and modern shopping centres.
Taxis were cheap for short runs and virtually immediate. Really miss eating under the warm sun overlooking the white beach and blue Atlantic........ We are from Ireland, and only met one other Irish couple, and there was a lot of French language, but we got by very well.
