We have just arrived home from a weeks stay at the Alga and I have to say it is what it says on the tin, Three Star. After making preferences with Flight Line for a garden or Sea room, we ended up with a room with a view of the car park and a very noisy road. The room had just been refurbished and in fairness the shower and bed were very good. However the room was tiny with one chair no balcony and a small window. The smell of urine was overpowering at night in the shower/toilet area and when I asked for another room, I was told the hotel was full. There was no evidence of the hotel being full in fact at times it looked empty. Three days later I asked again to be moved because the smell was making me feel sick at night along with the noise of the traffic. We were given a room with a lovely view but with no fridge or safe on the condition that we moved back to the other room one day before we were leaving. We paid over £1400 for 1 week HB and had to pack and unpack 6 times. There are NO english speaking channels on the TV and the staff struggle to understand what you are saying so brush up on your spanish. The food in the evening is served luke warm and nothing to write home about. The positive things about this hotel are the lovely staff, waiters/ waitresses and maids who do their best to make you feel welcome. There is a nice garden area and the fresh fruit and bread at breakfast is delicious but no eggs unless you pay extra. The rooms are kept very clean but not so sure about the pool. No entertainment in the evening and very litle music is played throughout the hotel. This hotel is a steep walk up from the beach but so are most of the hotels in the area. Would I stay at the Alga again? I doubt it.
