This week was a great week with people commenting on the Top 50 of Algarve Hotels on Facebook throughout the various channels where the list was available.
It was brought to my attention, that (for now?) I had missed 2 hotels with a considerable number of fans; the Terrace Club in Porches (#23) and Hoteís Baia (#19) with 2 hotels in Albufeira and Carvoeiro. I have done my best to recognise every contender but a few are bound to have slipped through the net. If you think your hotel should be included on the list, please let me know by commenting below.
This week’s comments to the Top 50 Algarve Hotels on Facebook:
- Increase Fan base: Due to the inclusion of these 2 new hotels, some of the metrics have changed considerably. The list saw the total fanbase increase by 6.546. However, during this week I already had been registering the new stats including these entrants and on average the hotels saw their fanbase grow by 40. Having said this, a little more than a dozen hotels have actually increased by more than 40, the large majority increasing at a lower pace.
Again, most fans were added by Vila Galé (549) more than the double of runner up Lagrimas Hotels and then followed by Tivoli, Longevity and Adriana Club. Most increases are noticeable at the top 10 and so easing away from the rest – the Top 10 holds 54% of the total Fans, while Balaia Golf Village, relatively low ranked at #29, stands out positively by not trailing much and having increased by 89 fans, as well as Hotel Quinta do Lago at #46 with 41 new fans. Two hotels saw their number of Fans reduce; again, Monica Isabel Beach Club and Pedras d’ el Rei for having stopped with their one site which now has reached the maximum capacity of 5.000 friends, so having moved to their other fan page.
- Market share: The highest increase of relative market share was this week by Quinta do Lago Hotel which increased by 7%, followed Balaia Golf Village (5%), Vila Joya, Pestana and Vila Galé – all 3%.
- Ranking: Some hotels swapped places, whilst Dom Pedro Hotels caught up with Real Marina Hotel & Spa, both now having the same number of Fans, while the same occurred with Pestana and Vila Vita Parc and with Pine Cliffs and Vale de Lapa– some coincidence! Prainha jumps up 2 places to #22, the Hilton Vilamoura overtook Ponta Grande. The Holiday Inn Algarve surpassed Monte da Quinta and the same happened with Vale do Lobo, who itself now sees preceded by Hotel Quinta do Lago.
- Remark to last week’s Poll:
Last week’s Poll raised the question if e.g. Portobay Hotels, Lagrimas Hotels and Tivoli should be on the Top 50 of the Algarve, as they also have (several) hotels outside the Algarve. Currently, the result is a tie with 5 in favour of including and 5 votes wanting to exclude those and similar hotels. Keep voting!
