          Hi,I'm thinking of staying here in September. I would like to know is there any difference between booking All Inclusive at Balaia Mar Hotel compared to All Inclusive at Balaia Apartments. Would there be access to same restaurants, bars,pools etc. We would still be able to book day trips? Also what is the weather like in late September? Thanks
