... we were taken out, thinking we were going to the vegetable market at Lagoa, then back. But we went on to Portimao, then to the shrine of Señora da Rocha and then back around 4.30. So a longer trip out.. But very pleasant. This evening Bill and I went to the fish restaurant on the beach and had Sea Bass - delicious but a little pricey. But isn't that what holidays are ...
... rest of the evening was simply visiting with everyone and enjoying our last night in our hostel! We woke up this morning and sat around the breakfast table, packed up, and then got a ride back to the train station where we caught our train! We are now traveling north and heading towards Lisbon, which is the capital city of Portugal! We are looking forward to our time there, and afterwards we will be heading to Porto! We were kind of bummed ...
... and had cereal and toast. We decided to hike all along the coast with all the beaches along them. We did three of the five beaches on the second day which were the most amazing beaches I've ever seen. They had crazy cliffs surrounding white sand and blue blue ocean. It was breathtaking. You had to climb across cliffs and up broken steps and it was amazing. It felt like i was looking at the front of every amazing postcard. That evening we had supper and all had some drinks ...
... of any kind! Up ahead were some stairs ascenting high past the cliffs, which we slowly climbed. We had been at it for 3 hours. It turns out the stairs were private access to the Pine Hills Golf & Country Club. We slithered past the posh pool and grounds like thieves in the night towards the Clubhouse. Then we ducked in to the locker rooms for a much needed urinary extraction. After that, with some difficulty, we found an exit, then a bus stop, and made it ...
... all for 6 euros 50 per person! The shark was a tender white meat and lovely. After stocking up on some staples (beer, wine, snacks) we played tennis. Now some down time: reading shower etc Happy hour a bit later then a good walk to the Clay Oven, for East Indian fare. This will likely be my last blog for our Portugal holiday. This is what I want for my last week: more of the same! I promise to do another blog if I have anything new to report. See you all in Canada soon! ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Balaia Golf Village Resort Albufeira
We stayed in Balai Golf Village in September. We were really pleased with the apartment, it was spotlessly clean. Even had a dishwasher and freezer plus the usual microwave, full cooker and fridge. There was even a mini barbecue where we cooked out sardines. I loved the electric juicer, I'm sure it was a novelty, we used to buy 5 kilos of oranges on the road to juice up - great.
Stayed here last week in July/first week in August and had a very relaxing time. Appt was clean and had everything we needed. No air-con, but the way the appt was built meant it stayed cool enough anyway. We had a ground floor which was great - straight out on to the grass from either the terrace off the lounge or the bedroom and about 100yds to the pool.
Got back from a fantastic 2 week holiday and can't wait to go back. We stayed in a superior 2 bed apt near the driving range. Everything we could have possibly needed was there, including buckets and spades etc for the kids. The whole village is spotless, maid service is superb.
Just back from a 10 day trip to this place. I stayed near the driving range at the furthest place away from reception which was blissfully quiet every morning. This might not be the case if you got one near the pool or reception.
We stayed here in May 2006 and had a fantastic time. The apartments were equipped with everything you could want including dishwasher, freezer, tumble dryer and iron, and the resort is lovely. Maid service was excellent - they swept and washed all floors every day (except Sunday which they dont work) as well as making the beds, and linen was changed 3 times per week. Although they leave tea towels there are no dishcloths which is a pain when wshing up and wiping down, so I suggest you take one.
We have just returned from our second trip to Balaia Golf Village, having visited there last May also. We rented the same ground floor apartment as we had last year, overlooking the driving range as its nice and quiet there (we have a toddler) and the apartment (2 bedroom) was really spacious and generally well equipped (although no iron for some reason to go with the ironing board!).
I'm just back from here and we used the Village as our base for Golfing in Vilamoura and boozing in Albuferia, I have no real complaints about the place other than the apartment had a bit of a damp smell, which with a few hours light and air seemed to disappear. The place was very clean and tidy and the cleaners visited daily although the only changed linen, towels every other day.
I went there in September and have only just got round to adding a review (probably going again!).
Just got back from Balaia Golf resort, stayed end May/start June. Appartments are great, very clean and bright, fully equiped kitchen, and washer/drier. The Veranda restaurant on site is pretty good, all of the staff we came across were excellent, especially the lady at the pool bar. Loads of pools, all very clean, and never overcrowded, the gardens are really pretty and everything is well maintained.
i stayed at this resort in march of 2005 and would like to warn others not leave valuables in your room just keep them with you or at home other than that it was a nice resort
