Reviewed 23 May 2013 via mobile

Spent a week here in may its location is good 2 minutes from all the bars/ restarants an prom
The staff are very helpfull
Breakfast is continatal which is not to my liking but you can have toast to fill the gap
Overall good hotel will go back here if stopping in Monto gardo
Just one thing take plenty off euros with you as it's hard to change your cash

Stayed in the Alba for 1 week in May, the hotel was good value for what we paid, clean and tidy. The staff were excellent, the reception staff spoke very good english and were very very helpful. Don't expect a full fry up breakfast it is only a cold buffet, eggs, cereal, fruit etc.. but the hotel is in a good location for eating out if you prefer. There is a bus top quite near where you can travel to the resorts near by or take the bus to villa real and get the ferry over to Spain, it cost's next to nothing.
Note! make sure you have plenty of Euro as changing cash to euro's prove's difficult unless you use the bank's where you get charged.
Great stay in Monte gordo had by all.

We stayed over Christmas and I must say for 3 star apartments they were good, the rooms were cleaned every day, and sheets and towels every two days,the staff were very frendly and could'nt do enough to help you. Did't find the beds hard and we slept well, some good places to eat near by and great coffee places all along the sea front, coffe and brandy for 2 euros over looking the sea what value, all in all good value for money.

The Alba is a reasonable hotel ,however beds are hard as nails so dont expect a great nights sleep.situated in a decent part of Monte Gordo with several restaurants and an excellent local coffee place around the corner...try the coffee and toast and watch the locals for abourt 3 euros.
Try the walk to Villareal through the trees as opposed to the main road.,and go to the market there on a Friday night.

Room Tip: go for an upper floor room

Stayed for 2 weeks in mid October. Although we arrived late we were given a warm welcome. I had asked for a high floor apartment and was given one but were also upgraded to a one bedroom instead of a studio. Room was clean and comfortable with climate control, large balcony and modern bathroom. TV had BBC1, ITV1 and CNN in English. Room cleaned every day with fresh towels. Only criticism would be tht the furniture was a bit tired although there is refurbishments going on. Brekfast was 4.5 euros and well worth it. Nice swimming pool and lounge although no one used the bar. Resort nice and flat with a fine sand beach which is very large. Prices are very inexpensive and you would pay no more than 2 euros for a large beer and bike hire was only 5 euros a day. Great bar near by called Club 80 run by Geronimo, 'call me Jerry'. Worth trecking to the railway Station to visit places along the coast. Timetable downloadable from the internet.
