Played here on a recent visit. It's a mickey mouse course and is a bad pitch and putt course at best. €50 euro for golf, basic clubs and a trolley. Bring your own balls. €10 euro for 2 large beers. Crazy stuff. Nice enough setting but wouldn't be rushing back anytime soon.

Fun, challenging Par 3 course. €40 including push trolley for nine holes. The first hole is a bit daunting, tee off on hillock outside the clubhouse, get the ball over a small lake and onto the green - with maybe 30 spectators who all clap if you get over the lake. Then you settle down. Pleasant staff and friendly people...

Our second day (of 5) here and the complex and grounds are second to none, beautiful landscaping, many pools and other facilities I am yet to explore fully, but on day 2 I am suitably impressed. We have parking and the hotel is well located for touring the coast or staying local. The only 'almost' so far is the apartment....

This place have for sure been nice 10 years ago. Now it's running on fumes. Falling apart, and won't exist in 5 years. They are milking the final drops out of the establishment. Booked a room for two days. The room looked nice at first, except it was very cold. And had a smell like a used bath towel. When...

It's one of the best hotesl in Algarve. The only problem is it's distance from the beach, it's quiet and you can simply relax from your daily routine. It's great for families with children because it's full of green spaces.

Our family of 5 stayed at Balaia Golf Village during the Christmas of 2016. It is a perfect to relax with very friendly staff. The huge campus is well equipped with restaurant, supermarket, parlour, gym, swimming pool, golf course, etc. There are places nearby for adventure sports too. The nearest beach is just 20-30 mins by walk. Really a great...
