This complex is now Residential with no facilities for Holidaymakers not suitable for holidays
as there are no staff available no reception no pool attendant no shop no bar ,you can have no complaints if you book with the owners of individual apartments, be warned.

Room Tip: Do not book with this Complex as it is now Private.

This apartment block has been taken over by new management in May 2007, and the improvements made have been fantastic. The view is second to none, and we found the people to be very friendly and helpful.

Quite a few of the apartments are owned privately and have been refurbished to a high standard.

The beach at Amadores is beautiful, with some lovely resteraunts and a newly opened beach house where you can rent double sunloungers with thick mattesses, and have your drinks served to you for just 17 euros a day.

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment block to anyone, the apartment we rented was basic, but clean and comfortable.

Stayed for 2 weeks at the hotel that I only can recommend for the wiev. First room we got where untidy, dirty water on the floor and a kitchen with no chance to cook. No pots or pans...
Just beside the rock wall made it unpleasant.
Second room we got where situated on the bottom floor just above the pool.
Things seemed OK until we got aware of that the hotel had sold out flats on our floor and the one next to us where a hippie flat with drugproblems.
After 3 night of noise and fights we finaly got the staff to quiet them down. But that had ruined the vacation night sleep. cos every time we heard any noice from them the feeling got unsafe. Even if it never became bad as in the start.
Untidy corridors, no service.
This was not expected.

Think twice before choosing Balcon.
This is always to be seen as the cheapest choice.

My wife and I stayed here in late November 2006.
Initially my wife wasn't too keen. As the one bedroom apartment we were allocated was pretty small, with a basic kitchen, which consisted of 2 electric rings. Having said that though, the apartment was clean and safe from what I saw.
We booked this holiday as a "last minute cheapie" - £500 for the both of us. The view from these apartments was worth that alone. It is absolutely stunning, I never tired of looking out over Amadores Bay for the entire week.
However bear in mind you only gain such a magnificent vantage point by being high up!!! Few hotels are higher, but we knew this before we booked, so it was not a shock. We managed to walk down the hill (20mins) and back up (40mins) via the road on a couple of occaisions, however our legs knew about it the next day!!!
There is a Taxi Rank Right outside the hotel and for a couple of Euros you can get down to the Harbour or to Amadores Bay, No Hassle!! This is what we did for the evening.
The Pool Area was in shade for the majority of the morning, however I would expect in summer with the sun being higher in the sky you would get areas of sun.
The staff were friendly enough after a couple days the guy behind reception knew us and always said "Hello" apart from this we didn't have any cause to require their assistance.
All in all - These apartments are quite basic, but as I have said Clean, and after all you do get what you pay for!!
If you go down to Amadores bay - Try "The Duke Of York" for food it is very reasonable and extremely good quality.
Steer Clear of the "Belice" both our meals were Disgraceful its a wonder they didn't kill me serving up tepid seafood!!!

We Booked Via "SUNSET" and this obviously is not a reflection against these apartments. But The Rep service was very poor. We had no rep from the airport and the driver couldn't find the Apts. No welcome meeting, no visits to the Apts and No times Displayed for "Pick Up"

Balcon De Amadores is a very nice quiet hotel. Rooms are very clean and staff are friendly. One problem though, you are stuck at the very top of the mountain.... Taxi's are always available right outside the hotel, they are really cheap and only take a few minutes to go to the botton of the Mountain (Commercial Centre)
Amadores Beach, is lovely, one of the best beaches ive been too, not too far from Balcom De Amadores Hotel....
The pool area in the hotel where much though, the whole week I was there the bar was'nt open and the hotel shop was always empty..... Not really much stock available!
The view from our balcony was gorgeous, one of the best views I have ever seen...
