Stayed at the original Inatel (not the one on the beach) for 10 days H/B in August with family of 3 young children. We really enjoyed our stay, the hotel is in a fabulous location, across the road from the beach and a 10 minute walk max to the vibrant old town. Our room was a standard size, we were... More

We arrived very excited for out stay but inatel very quickly put a dampner on everything. We were told we were staying in a back building, the room was terribly small and on top of that had no balcony, no cooking facilities, no cutlery and only a portable fridge that was soo small a 1L bottle wouldnt fit. I asked... More

Be aware if you book this place that they have two buildings. The one in the blurb with lovely sea beach views and the one you are stuck with when you arrive. Which has no views and pokey rooms with no facilities as promised. Also don't bother going to the reception to complain, breath wasted. By the way we paid... More

Stopped in the Inatel, Albufeira for 7 nights B and B in May. Spotted this hotel on a trip last October and thought it was a good location. The location is excellent for Albufeira old town 5 - 10min walk, there is a shuttle road train that runs to the strip and a public bus stop at the entrance to... More

Having just read a recent review I'd agree with most of the comments. We booked a sea view room with balcony, however the sun was right above the hotel and the balcony had no sun whatsoever all day. We paid €37 a night to upgrade to a suite which had partial sun until 5.30pm - sea view. The rooms are... More

I'd like to take exception with the review 'rude cleaners', written by someone who hadn't even stayed there!!! We did stay 28 days HB with Mercury Direct. This was our first time in Portugal, our first impression of the hotel was excellent, the receptionist was friendly, knew our name and quickly checked us in despite the fact we arrived before...

Our second visit to the INATEL - not the renovated one on the beach. Whether it is because we are "well known" at this hotel (we have been using the cafe on the beach for 19 years) but our welcome is always warm and friendly. The staff are excellent, Manager Sr. Fernando and his wife always kind and ready to... More

I've been delaying this review in the hopes of reading what changes have been made since our visit last October. Since there have been so few reviews, however, I decided it was time to go ahead and add our experience to help others who might be interested in this hotel. First, contrary to what some others have discussed on this... More
