Top 50 of Algarve Hotels on Facebook – Week 1


Greetings!

Happy New Year to all Blog Readers and Followers!

Which hotels are the fastest movers? Did your hotel make the cut for this week’s Top 50?

It has been a while that I posted the last – Top 50 of Algarve Hotels on Facebook, dating back to 11th of December and I hoe you are as curious what happened within almost a month.

The last time I remarked that with the new facebook profiles recently introduced it is now also clearer that some hotels (e.g. Real Marina) are using a personal profile, instead of a company profile, which will allow then only a maximum of 5.000 fans – none seem to have acted upon this, bringing Hoteis Real now into “trouble” with 4.999 fans. If I really would be stringent, all those not being “Fan Pages” ought to be excluded, although this would take out some “household names” and about 10 hotels would not appear.

  • Fan Base Increase: The list saw the total fanbase increase by 4.505 fans or an average of 90. No surprises in the Top 5 Vila Galé adding 924 fans – 55% of the Top 10 fan increase. Then the most fans were not added in the Top 10, but by Vale do Lobo (+832 – and I suppose here I missed out on their real fan site in previous editions), CS Hotels (+246), Hoteis Baia (+221). Never before, the list saw so many hotels reduce their fans; again, for a 5th (!) week in a row, Monica Isabel Beach Club saw its fan base dwindle (-50 fans), Martinhal (-41 fans), Adriana Beach Club (-29) and Hotel Eva (-4).

 

  • Market Share: 15  hotels increased their relative market share with the largest increases for Vale do Lobo (+0,5%), Vila Galé (+0,2%) and 5 other hotels with 0,1%. 

 

  • Ranking: Unfortunately, I did not register any new entrants and a total of 12 hotels have moved up the table. Vila Galé remains unchallenged for the first spot on the table, holding that position firmly since the beginning. Fastest Mover of this week’s top 50 is CS Hotels Jumping 4 positions to 12th. Tivoli jumps from 7th to 5th, Pedras d’el Rei (#8th) overtakes Hoteis Real (#9), Dom Pedro Hotels climbs a spot to #14th, as well as Hoteis Baia (19th), Prainha 22nd, Hilton (34th), Brown’s (41st), Hotel Quinta do Lago (46th) Pestana climbing 2 spots to 25th, and the same accounts for Encosta do Lago (27th), Vila Joya (38th) when working down the list.

 

As with all lists, I have tried to include all hotels to my best knowledge. In case you feel I have missed out on a paricular hotel, feel free to comment or Tweet me with a DM at @marcsontag. Do not forget, comments appreciated underneath! Have a great read and check out the rank of your hotel!
