“A solid 3!!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Myself and 3 friends went stayed here for a girls weekend and it was good for what we needed. It is a fairly large dated hotel that is kept clean. Rooms have what you need on a basic level with good air con. The food was fresh and had a good variety. My main gripe would be the silly 2 drinks rule at the bar which I can understand if you are ordering alcohol but this also applied to soft drinks. The beach is lovely too and there were a good amount of sundbeds. There are a free nice bars and space is very close as is bora bora. Pacha was 10 mins in a taxi as was the old town. All In all a good base.

We stayed at Hotel Algarb as a couple for a week from Thursday 29th of May to the 5th of June and it was a really enjoyable stay. The hotel was clean to begin with, the reception staff were quick to try fix and service any issues were had. The staff were friendly and i guess some were put of by some rude boozed up Brits as you would expect whenever you go on holiday! The hotel does have double beds for couples and they offered us a room change but we kept our room (614). Bed linen can be changed everyday if u want, there's a
safe in each room (28 euro/week) plus aircon, fresh food everyday and you can have some of it cooked fresh while you wait. Good food choice as well and anyone who complains about the food is just a hypocrite because they probably go to McDonalds and order the same big mac All the time anyway haha!! The location of the hotel is great and all rooms I'm told have got sea views, ours was brilliant. Get booking, go all-inclussive because the difference for going half-board or self catering is around 50euros!

I went here with a group of girls, was early June, nice hotel, very clean and staff very nice. I think food was very average, but hot and plenty of it. Can't knock location, right on nice beach, walking distance to bora bora, ushuia, space etc. Was a very multi cultural hotel. Was quiet noisy on night, so if hoping for early night this isn't great choice. Not somewhere I would go with children. Brilliant for short break with friends or couples etc.

Room Tip: Nice views from higher floors.

The room we were allocated 253 which should have been double for a couple was in fact a single room (single head board one bedside cabinet and a single light placed on the wall suitable for a single bed) we had a double bed placed in the middle of the room.We have been on ship cruises with bigger rooms.The food in the restaurant offered a good selection unfortunately the food was not hot which I am sure would not be up to British standards should a health inspector pay a visit. The plate racks had heating elements to help keep food warm on the plates we're not workingThe staff were generally very pleasant and helpfull I would like to say the Resturants manager could improve his rather dull attitude to customers.This particular week the hotel was full of students and not suitable for family's . They were from various counterys with some who could learn some manners and control their vocabulary a little better which could have been controlled by the staff a little better.The hotel could introduce a better dress code for evening dinner rather than allow any one to walk in just in vest.The hotel was right on the beach and very pleasant position

Room Tip: Don't expect a luxury room as this 3 star

Dear Dan,

Thank you for your review and thank you for kinds words regarding our staff which we will share with them.

Referring to the room is a double bed with one bed of 1.35 meters. If it was not like from reception he could have managed an up-grade

First of all we want to apologize about the problem with the buffet temperature, the buffet temperature is 90 ºC and plates are constantly heating, the maître attended your complaint and transmit to our technical service, however the client has the option to use the microwave.

About dress code for evenings, our company don't have dress code for the moment, but we do not allow entering in to the restaurant without t-shirt or shoes and with swimsuit wet.

We hope to see again next season.

Hi ..just spent 5 days at the algarb with hubby we got back on the 13th june ..cant really moan too much about the hotel itself as we didn't have much to moan about..we had a decent size twin room ..but overlooked the road side of the hotel which was a shame would have liked a sea view but heyho ..roons were cleaned every day if you wished but didn't feel the need for this ..you dont as home was wasn't too fused ..always lots of food choices at every settings ..the omlettes at breakfast were fab compliments to the chef..the food wasnt very warm at any of the settings and never saw a microwave so I chose to eat from the fresh cooking part ..pasta in evenings always nice ..the best part of the hotel is the location ..you walk about 50 steps and you are on the sand .The lookie men did get on my nerves and did congregate from this hotel at all times ...the beach was always quite tjis end but as you got nearer to bora bora it got louder and busier ..but didn't see any violence or bad things just people enjoying thereselves ..which is why everyone goes to that part of the island as the space club is up near there..we walked to figurettes from our hotel which took a couple of slow hours walk to get there and back along the beach which was nice .we also went into the ibiza old town which is a must . Bus stop is to the left of hotel and only cost us 8 euros there and back ..a good night as the gum ball rally was on the night we went ..would I go back to this hotel probably yes ..first two nights were very loud in the room next door as it seemed that there night was the after party room ..followed by a two hour session by the couple staying there ..obviously the perks of ibiza I guess ..we didnt watch any if the entertainment as we ate and went out round the shops etc ..loads of them in bossa ..restaurant s and bars. .plenty of boat trips hoibg from the beach etc ..jet ski bananna boats very expensive thou all the beach sports..there is free wifi in the reception if your obsessive to have to use it..but its not the best ..obviously being drained by all so its prob not the best signal ..we had a late flight back and wanted to extend our room but for 50 euros not a chance ..the drink system round the pool is pathetic is the smallest cups and only 2 allowed at a time ..not being greedy but that needs changing four mouthfuls and its gone . Therefore causing a never ending queues makes sense all round fir var staff and guests not good..apart from the tramp who walked blatantly off with my towel on the last day from my bed after walking to the sea to cool down ..hope your pleased with yourself as it was seen by another cheers for that ..I would go back to this hotel for sure as its only other guests that spoil things NOT the hotel although a few bits could be helped from the hotel side of thing's that have been mentioned ..

We went to Ibiza for four nights and stayed here. The hotel was functional - clean and did what it needed to. The rooms were ok - we had a twin room, but the beds were awful. The way the hotel is designed means that noise from doors closing and people talking in the corridors echoes and is magnified to much louder than it actually is, so I advise ear plugs if you are a light sleeper! Location-wise the hotel is pretty central in Playa d'en Bossa, so it's easy to get around. If you don't like eating 'British international' food (as in, 'traditional' English greasy fry-ups, pizzas and the like) then you'll need to travel further afield to find a decent restaurant for any of your meals. Here is not the place to find authentic Spanish cuisine! If you're going with a group of friends and don't really care then it's probably ideal. Around a 10-minute walk to Space.

Dear guest,

We appreciate your time taken to write your comments that help us to keep working hard.

We are very pleased to know that you enjoyed the location and the cleaning service.

However we deeply regret the inconvenience caused to you during your stay and we really would like to apologize for that.

Food is according to a three star establishment and has variety of courses, our restaurant have the show cooking during each service, for example, at breakfast time we are offering; crêpes, omelettes to taste and sandwiches to taste. The lunch services are adequate for the hotel category.

Finally we have three themed dinners, Monday Mexican dinner, Wednesday Asian dinner and Friday Spanish dinner; each special night ends with a professional show.

On Friday, the special Spanish dinner have a huge typical selections from Spain and typical specifically selections from Ibiza and Mallorca (cheese selections, desserts selections, etc..).

On the other hand, I deeply regret you were not satisfied with the beds from the room; our maintenance service could change your mattress if it was not comfortable for you if you had informed to our front desk 24 hours reception.

We would like to let you know that we will take your opinions into account and we try to do our best to avoid that kind of situations.

Once again let us to apologize and hopefully we could see you soon at any of our establishments.

Stayed here for 4 days! Definitely recommend for a cheap get away! Rooms were nice with lateral sea views. Food was very nice each day always with a different selection definitely one of the best all inclusive I have ate in. Hotel is right on the beach and everything is easily accessible eg all the clubs are easy to get to. Will definitely return in the future.
