Location and cleanliness.
Disappointed that the outside restaurant and bar was closed. Could do with music outside .
Nice clean hotel room were cleaned every day
The only thing I would say about it is that it is a little to far away from anything need to get taxi every where.
Bed comfortable, friendly staff, food good, parking, pool, cleanliness and access other eating facilities.
Late room cleaning.
The hotel and facilities were excellent. Although it is a 3 star hotel it must be up there pushing for that 4th star. The pool was especially good, a good size and deep. Bar restaurant Staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you.
Although I appreciate it is very difficult to keep so much food continually hot, I felt more could have been done particularly by supplying warm plates. There was a heat lamp plate heater however this would only heat the top plates and only once did I witness it switched on.
The bed and pillows were comfortable. The whole bedroom was spotless cleaned. So was the bathroom. The maid services were actually perfect! Clean towels everyday, floor cleaned and trash removed without I even saw them. The location is also a plus. 400m from the beach. There is a mini market just crossing the street. The hotel restaurant was also pretty good great cost-benefit with a reasonable price and variety. I did not used the pool, but I saw the staff maintaining it and the whole area looks spotless clean.
I got a room that was straight at the top of stairs. So I could hear people talking loud and stomping at stairs steps for most of the time. The furniture looks so old and outdated that I thought I was still on 1992. The bed coverlet had hole in it from excessive wear. The AC had wires coming off from the bottom cover. Even though I scheduled my arrival from 14:00 to 15:00, the room was only ready at almost 16:00.
When you stay at Hotel Balaia Mar in Albufeira, you'll be near the beach, within a 5-minute drive of Oura Beach and Santa Eulalia Beach. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
