“Lovely place”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

I have to admit that this is a lovely place to stay, although a bit on the quiet side and I wished there was more round about, but if it's a quiet, relaxing, chilling out kinda holiday you're after, then you'll love this place! The food is average to good but by the end of the week it's the same as anywhere else as you get a bit sick of it, but they do try hard. The staff are fabulous and can't do enough for you, Berta is probably the hardest worker I've ever seen, and the rest of the staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you, it was made all the better as we met a lovely family from Wales and we plan to meet up with them again next year. Well worth a visit!

Room Tip: Rooms above reception get the sunlight better than the ones opposite for drying towels.

Just returned from a lovely weeks holiday (28th sept - 5th Oct) with family staying at the Balansat appartments.
After arriving quite late, reception was open and received a friendly greeting. Over the course of the week all of the staff were friendly and no task to help was a problem.
The a[ppartments, we chose to have a sea view was not disappointing although like other reviews commented can be noisy in the early hours . The appartment was quite spacious and basic but comfortable.
We had opted for self catering( due to smal fussy children) and the appartment was equipped to deal with. Some of the worktops and cuboards were worn, broken and could do with updates.
Aircon and TV with some English channels included
The reception were offering all incusive for 20 Euros and in hindsight this would have been a good offer.
There are 2 swimming pools and a water park ares for young children and an enthusiastic animator always looking to entertain everyone.
Ever wanted to try scuba diving, well a local dive center gives you a free chance in one of the pools.
A big attraction of this hotel is the close proximity to a lovely sandy beach- 100m.
For the sportsmen- Casey's Irish bar next door shows all the football

Overall - comfortable accomadation, friendly staff, good value for money, excellent location

Room Tip: Seaview rooms ( spacious) are above Casey's Irish Bar- can be alittle noisy in early hours

Been back home now a couple of weeks. We stayed at the appartments on an all inclusive basis. 9/9/13 - 21/9/13
First impressions are deceiving. Upon arrival received a warm reception, were given our key and directions to our appartment. On opening the door got that oh! feeling as the apartment was very basic a little dated. I had emailed the resort re a request for a sea view and location away from the Irish bar, brill it was done and we had a front sea view and people watching balcony which caught the morning sun until lunchtime.
The place definitely grows on you! The apartments as said are basic the bedding and towels are changed regularly, there's no fineries like toiletries or welcome back to get your holiday started. But that didn't really matter! The layout of the resort is just fine for all ages there's something for everyone from tiny tots to older folk and everything inbetween!
Kids splash pool great, well thought out /safe /secure/ fun.
The main pool ends up quite kid free and there's loads of sun bathing area around about pool/sun/bar and grassed area for chillin or games!
The inner courtyard pool area around reception and bar is a lovely first impression! Although the pools a bit chilly is a good hideaway during the day for quiet sun bathing.
Our first week was as we found out part of Spanish hols and so there were lots of Spanish families visiting. Even a local wedding on the beach was so beautiful. All in all a good thing to be part of. The second week was quieter and one of the entertainers finished their season went home. He was a big miss for his enthusiasm. The food / entertainment was varied and very local suiting all tastes.
The resort itself is small and perfectly formed enough to do if your looking for a relaxing time. However we did visit the Irish bar once was enough as the prices are extortionate! It kicks off every night after 11 until the wee small hours as does the Wild West across the bay!! So plenty party party if that's your thing too.
We liked the sports bar a little further up from the bay. Is more reasonably prices has free wifi and has football on regularly.
Sea food I love but didn't love the prices of the restaurants on the beach, just pop up the street to the restaurant that does the mini golf and you'll be pleasantly surprised!
Oh go on the little train trips!
Have a wander around the bay to other coves. Walk up to the caves. There's loads to do! Catch the boat trips and ride the banana boat or simply go fishing.
'Twas towards the end of the summer season and everything will be winding down now. To have a little rest ready for next season. Go and have some fun!
Thanks to all the staff especially Berta and Niño
Des and other barman. Oh and the dark chunky waiter who gave me the rose on tourist day, all the chefs and restaurant staff who all made such a happy stay possible.
Such a happy place even though a bit rough on the edges. See you again some day!!

We stayed for a week with our two boys aged 9 and a very fussy 13 year old. The boys had the 'best holiday ever' as the resort is full of sociable families (we hardly saw the boys to be honest, they made friends as soon as we arrived and were able to just be around the pools playing + hanging out). The resort was very relaxing, we met some great people, had some cracking evenings sat by the bar enjoying the all inclusive drinks. The food was very tasty, always fresh fish, fresh meat, fresh local dishes, lasagne etc, salads and coleslaws - The staff very all friendly. Couldn't have asked for more for the price - we'll definitely go back.

As a fusy individual who has worked in the hotel industry I expect good service, cleanliness and attention to detail.....all of which my partner and I got in abundance. If you want 1st class and luxury go and pay for it elsewhere, but if you want a pleasant holiday in a great place on a realistic budget, book here.
We went as a couple but there were alot of families too, this did not interfere with our peace and privacy, the separate childrens area/pool looked fantastic and appeared to keep the children happy, safe and entertained all day. The beach was wonderful too as well as the efficiency of the transfers/excusions. We did not go with a specific operator but we certainly did not feel left out at any stage of our holiday. The food / restaurant was well laid out, very clean, great choice, a wee bit processed on some things, but overall good. fresh and tasty meals.
I would go back anytime........

Room Tip: Try the prestige apts if you can afford it, if only for the view and position. However I stayed in t...

My husband and myself stayed at this hotel last week and I must say that we had the most wonderful time.

Location could not be better, the food was ample and varied and temperature checked on a number of occasions whilst we were dining to ensure that it was the correct heat.

The staff we encountered were always friendly and happy to help. We stayed in room 111 which overlooked the pool and was basic but clean and well presented, and was away from Casey's bar which would have been my worst nightmare to be near as it is very loud.

The entertainment was at the poolside stage and bar every evening and this ended by 11:00 pm promptly every evening which was ideal for us as we just wanted a really relaxing holiday.

When you walk out of the hotel you are right on the beach which is a beautiful little bay and the fish swim close to the shore so that you can feed them bread.

If you are a couple looking to get away from it all or have a young family who would love the splash pool, beach and early nights you'll love it here.

Room Tip: If you like quiet ask for a room on the Torremar side of the complex and be mindful that there are n...
