Walked past this Hotel last year while staying in Albufeira! This year I decided to book it for a 5 night stay , I booked with Alpharooms thinking I’d booked the beachfront hotel as that what the photos were indicating! On arrival we were told we had been allocated a room in the hotel across the road ! I wasn’t dissapointed as that hotel was equally as good if not better, Lovely pool, friendly staff, really clean , maid service everyday , What more could you ask for? The hotel mainly catered for French and Portuguese guests but every guest said hello and smiled at you as if to say they were enjoying their stay ! It was only a short stroll to the old town and less that €5 taxi ride to the lively strip ! Would I return to this hotel! Definitely! Infact I’m already saving my pennies ! Thankyou Inatel for a fabulous break

The Hotel is on the sea front, rooms are outstanding staff are very helpful food is nice could of done with more choice by what was there tasted good. a little stroll along the beach and your in the old town.

Stayed in the white inatel, rooms were spacious and cleaned everyday,great location,10min walk to old town.Breakfast was ok but could do with a better fruit bar, they just had some banaas oranges and apple whole.My only fault is reception staff, i encountered 3 and they were not welcoming on check in or out, I left back my keys and said I was checking out and I got ok , no how was ur stay or anything, check in was same, slow and no welcome.

Stayed here on my stag as in between old and new town. Was quiet and mostly occupied by older French tourists but a nice hotel. Don’t get fooled by the photos on booking sites they don’t make it clear it’s two totally different buildings. One the original is up the hill and has the pool the other is right on the beach. If you get a superior room you will be in the new one on the beach, standard or with solarium is in the older building. I stayed at both during our visit and both are very nice obviously the new one has modern decor and fittings. The standard rooms are fine though clean nice little balcony ample room. The old town is a leisurely 5 minute walk and down the escalator the new town is a 5 Euro taxi. Pool area is lovely and would definitely stay again this time with my family.

Far exceeded my expectations. After reading a few reviews i was expecting a very basic dated hotel. The view when you walk into the reception i s amazing we were staying in the hotel Praia on the beach, we stayed in a beach view room with a fantastic view. The breakfast was also brilliant something for everyone. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is immaculately clean. The only problem i had which is absolutely nothing to do with the hotel is the sunbeds directly outside the hotel on the beach, they do not belong to the hotel as i discovered whilst lying on one only for a man to approch me and ask for 12 euro!!! there is no sign to tell you this.

Good hotel on edge of old town, just a 5 minute stroll (Uphill, but not too difficult) sits directly facing its sister hotel 'Inatel Praia' on the Inatel beach which has a lovely beach terrace and snack bar,which is extremely cheap for a hotel!! 2 burger&chips meals plus half bottle wine a small bottle water 11 € for the main hotel, I think it is French hotel chain, as most of clientele were french , or maybe it is the time of year when they visit Algarve but, regardless they were also very polite &friendly in greeting us😆it was very quiet but it was mid April for our stay. Staff were lovely and very helpful and professional!! Rooms really comfortable and clean. Daily maid service, and were also very pleasant! Pool was excellent, one of the best pools ive seen in albufeira! Would definately recvomend this hotel for couples & families.

very clean hotel , excellent staff , should be 4 star rated . perfect location for old town and 20 mins walk to strip , right on the beach , all you need for a classy bed and breakfast , the main hotel and pool are across the road , set back from the beach , we stayed on the beachfront building having paid for the sea view and well worth it

Inatel Albufeira Praia is on the beach and has rooms on the sand. We originally booked and changed to the Praia with an ocean view. Great room cleaning. Room was fantastic. Loved the decor. The Cafe on the 1st floor was also great. Good prices and great food. Just a few minutes walk to old town.

We originally booked just Inatel Albufeira regular room, which we found upon arrival to be the hotel set back up the road. To get the hotel that is on the beach - Inatel Albufeira Praia - you must select higher grade room choices. Fortunately we were able to upgrade by paying about 25 Eu a night and had a lovely room with a balcony that overlooked the beach. Beautiful rooms that has been recently updated. Staff is kind and most speak English. A typical European hot breakfast is included.

Had a nice ten day break at the Inatel Praia Hotel in Albufeira. We booked a superior room which was comfortable and had plenty of storage space and the fridge and safe were free. We didn't have a balcony but had a large window and a beautiful view out to sea and along the beach. Stayed on B&B basis, the breakfast was basic but adequate. Unfortunately there was no bar to speak about, nor at the sister hotel across the road, which meant a trek into the old town every night which was uphill. I would however stay at this hotel again if staying in Albufeira.
