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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Balaia Village - fabulous stay
We stayed in a lovely apartment at Balaia Golf Village. It was a perfect set up for myself, sister in law and three nephews, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The apartment has plenty of natural light and has a huge veranda with a view over the pool and fantastic pine trees all around. The pools were lovely, tennis courts on site, and it was a short walk to the beach, and there were local amenities nearby, spar shop, cafe and restaurants. Highly recommended

Relaxing experience all round.
As a UK based family of five staying at the Balaia Golf Village during the Covid 19 emergency we were treated to a fortnight of total relaxation. The resort is situated near gorgeous beaches and we were spoilt with the choice of either the 6 pools or the 2 beaches within easy walking distance. The apartment had two bedrooms and two bathrooms giving us plenty of space and privacy. The kitchen area was well equipped allowing us to eat in more than we did out as it was nice to just chill out on the veranda after eating. Everything was set up in such a way that we did not have to ask for assistance from reception or staff members during the stay and nor was there ever any disorder during the day or night from other guests considering the size of the resort to spoil the calm mood of the place. Our eldest is 18 years old and he spent a lot of time on the golf course whilst the younger children spent a lot of time in the pools or playing tennis, pool and going for walks in the beautifully kept gardens. All in all you will not be disappointed to stay at the Balaia golf resort and the beautiful Algarve weather allied to the warm welcome from the people there will only make it harder for you to leave. I once told my wife that I would find it hard to stay at the same place twice for a vacation and I had not been home more than a few hours when we agreed to book it again for next year as it ticked every single box. Enough said.

Great stay
The appartment is very spacious and has all the things you need for a perfect stay. Closest beach (Sta Eulalia) is just 1 minute by car. Balaia complex is large, nice, clean and quiet. The pools are perfect. My family had such a good time in this place that we'll definitely be back soon. Thanks to Ian for the attention.

great location
the appartment was large, light and airy. there was a dishwasher and laundry facilities. it had a really large balcony which meant it was a little more private than some of the other apartments. the pool was one of the quieter ones but all the pools in the resort were close for walking to. There is a supermarket just across the carpark which was handy for getting some supplies, especially first thing in the morning.

Best family holiday ever
My husband and I stayed at this apartment with our three children from 15 years old to nine years old. We had such a fantastic time and really enjoyed our holiday. This apartment is really lovely and spacious and it is in the most ideal location for a young family, with the balcony overlooking the lovely pool and close to the supermarket and reception. There are a further 5 pools (two with snack bars) within a five minute walk and all are very family friendly and safe. There is a beautiful golf course on the complex and also a tennis court and gym. The staff were always very helpful and friendly and offered a most convenient service of arranging transport and ticket booking for various water parks etc. and also organising taxis to and from locations. There is plenty for all to do with four brilliant water parks. There are cruises, safari's and shopping trips that can also be easily booked and arranged by reception with transport to and from activities. There is a little town about a 15 minute walk away with various shops, bars and restraunts and if preferred, the old town is an 8 euro taxi ride from the complex. The old town offers a variety of shops, bars and restraunts and comes alive at night with street markets, bands and lots of other entertainment. I would highly recommend this location and apartment and look forward to going back again.
