Reviewed 5 June 2013

this is our second time staying in alba would have no problem staying there again. the staff were really helpful and friendly. the beds i found comforable and clean . its only 3 mins to beach and shops. the place to eat a fine for breakfast would be moby's and a fine chicken or pork dinner with mash and roast spuds veg an gravy. toni and carl will make you feel v welcome. the bar which we went to was mobys and guadiana bar and angela and carlas make u feel v welcome and it also v confortable bar
thanks from pat and marie

we stayed in the Hotel Alba from 5 to 19 may 2013 which was a sunday on monday and every day there was building work as they are renovating the rooms top to bottom and installing a lift and so the noise was awful and had to complain as did the people next door so the previous people who have written on hear must not have heard all the drilling and jackhammering as did we and numerous guests we also had cockroaches in our room the manager moved us to another room but only after a lot of complaining it is a pitty as the hotel is in a good location but my advice is to check that the renovations are finnished!

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

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
