My fiance and I have recently returned from a fantastic 10 days at the Alba Royal Hotel and would love to be back there now!
We arrived at around 2am and were greeted at reception with a cold lemon drink and a selection of handmade macaroons. After a speedy check-in we were told that in the 24hr bar on the lower ground floor a snack was waiting for us along with a refreshing cold beer. We were then shown to our room, which was on the top floor over looking the pool with a balcony and a sea view. The room was more than adequate for us, with a good sized bathroom, ample storage space and a very large bed. We also had a mini-bar which was re-stocked daily with both local and branded soft drinks. The room was serviced daily with towels replaced whenever we requested. There were never any issues with cleanliness.
The hotel is immaculate and ideally situated just off of its own private beach. We spent one day at the beach, which is very clean and well stocked with overhead sunscreens and sunloungers. Just up from the beach is the beach bar, where there is a good choice of freshly cooked meals to choose from and the service is good. We would recommend the pizza and self service salad bar!
The Hotel is spacious and always immaculate. There are two inside bar areas to choose from, the first floor one was our fave as you could sit outside on a swinging chair, and overlook the pool whilst enjoying a drink. The buffet restaurants are good, we sat outside for every meal and there were never any issues with getting a table. The food choice was good and always varied. Whilst at the hotel, I had a massage in the spa, which was good value for money, though you do need to haggle! We also had some professional photos done with the hotels photographer, within the hotels gardens and on the private beach, which are a great reminder of our holiday.
The pool area and poolside bar is superb. Very clean, and never any issues with getting a sunbed. Afternoon waffles are a must as is iced coffee, with a drop of bailey's! There are a couple of local cats who seem to base themselves at the hotel, who happily wandered from guest to guest, making new friends.
I have left the best to last. The animation team.........I dont know where to start, we cant praise them enough. They work so hard to make sure that everyone has a good time at the hotel, whether it be rallying people for the poolside games, to putting on fantastic shows in the evening. One of which my fiance James was lucky enough to be heavily involved in, as he got to play the part of Jake Blue in the Blues Brothers. Hugo, Mickey, Oxana, Onur, Vedat (my other blues brother), Julia, Mischa , Anna, Christina, Melena and Ozzy, thank you for all your hard work and for being so kind, we really miss you guys!
All in all this was the best holiday we have been on and can understand why so many people return time and time again! We cannot wait to start planning our return trip, hopefuly with our Holiday BFF'S for a reuninon holiday!!!!!
