“DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

What ever you do, do not stay here. Rude staff, no wifi that works, old beat up small mattresses, security that bothers you for no reason, even opens your room and comes in without your permission, and to top it all off they only have 4 Irons that you can check out from the front desk to use even though they have a few hundred rooms! So do the math on what your chances are on getting one if you need it LOL.. I can go on forever but i think you get the point. Good luck if you stay here!

Don't take too much notice of the downside reviews.
This was a great break and well worth the money-booked with jet2holiday and had a great time.
Great location not too far from Ibiza town,10 mins.from airport and right on the beach.
Clubbing season had ended so no trouble or excess noise at night.
Food was good, staff very helpful, rooms clean, at the price a definite snip.
We were there for 7 nights last week in Oct.2013 and weather was also perfect.
Will be going back again and will be booking with the same travel company.

Room Tip: try for a room looking over the pool, sun there all day.

As with some of the other people on here, my husband and I didn't expect to be staying at this hotel. Arriving at our expected hotel to find the gates locked and it closed was a bit surprising to say the least. The poor communications and customer service from Grupo Playa Sol was easily the worst bit about our stay, however bad others may have found the hotel. The hotel looks a bit dated, and could do with a some paint throughout, and the furnishings looked dated. However, they were comfortable and didn't cause any issues. The hotel itself was nearly empty, so there were no problems with crowds round the pool or food times. The pool itself was ok, and the terrace has an exit which leads on the beach. We had no problems getting more than one drink, and the measures were a little jaw dropping at times. We also had no real issues with the food, pasta dishes were being cooked to order, as well as meat/fish being grilled, this was extra to the dishes that were pre-served, salads, desserts etc. Most of the staff we met were friendly and polite. All in all this was a very good venue for what was a required of it, a short break in the sun.

Room Tip: Get a higher level room with a sea view.

Myself and my mother stayed at the Hotel Algarb from the 15th to the 22nd October.If you are hoping to sleep or relax during the day you have no chance. From 11am to 7pm there is very loud music played in the pool area that can be heard in every part of the hotel.Even when your doors and windows are shut in your room its all you can hear.Some of the music contained very offensive language and there were children playing in the pools

In the restaurant there is dirty water leaking from the air conditioners onto food plates and food at the buffet , on our first night we discovered this half way through a meal and my mother spent four of our seven days in her room with sickness and diarrhea.

The internet is 40 euros for a week , what the hotel fails to tell you is that it does not work if you want to use Facebook or Skype to contact relatives back home.Most other applications do not work either.I complained to the hotel and was told that if i needed to use the internet i should do it in the middle of the night when all the other guests were asleep as there signal was no good.

The food was varied but we found the meat several times not cooked properly and cold, and the same food was repeated daily.

The nosiest hotel i have ever stayed in it was like sleeping in the middle of a shopping center , never again,

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.

We had a week at this hotel,October 11th - 18th, this wasn't our chosen hotel but was relocated due to end of season & other hotel closed early!
From the start off we was meeted by miserable faces on reception,bar staff (upper & lower bars) the maids was the politest! The rooms are ok,cleaned every day,sea view off balcony!!
The food is bland & doesn't change (same at lunch as is dinner) the "snacks" consist of 2 dry pieces of bread with slice of meat in a sealed bag, or a salad bowl or croissants
Drinks... Only allowed 2 drinks at a time unless All your party are near the bar!
The entertainment consisted of one person,Rossa, she works really hard doing exercise in morning,walking round poolside checking guests are ok & bring free drink tasters,in evening she puts on evening entertainment as best as she could! Rossa only member of hotel staff to smile & have a conversation with guests!
The good points of this hotel,Clean & tidy,hotel right on the beach,clear blue water & very tidy kept beach!! Small Pool but it's ok because the beach is few feet away!
Would I go back? Definitely Not!!!

Room Tip: The rooms have good Sea views, corner of hotel has best views

We stayed here for 5 days/nights. Wasn't sure what to expect as we booked it last minute and the reviews about the food were not good. This is not the case at all. My husband likes eating healthy where as I'm picky with my food. We both had lots to choose from and enjoyed the food with fresh pasta dishes and different meats cooked infront of you and a different variety of fish, chicken and meats in different sauces every day. Our whole stay was very enjoyable with friendly staff especially Rossa the entertainment lady who was very helpful and always trying to keep everyone happy and as she speaks various languages so involving everyone. We would stay here again even though there was not many places open at this time of year but the weather, hotel and staff were fantastic and we met some lovely people there xx
