The hotel is a 15 minutes drive away from Alghero 35 minutes by bus. The bus schedule to the hotel is not the greatest, I believe there are 4 or 5 buses a day to and from the hotel.The hotel is magnificent, big rooms, private terraces with excellent outdoor views, great salt water pool, clear sea. Friendly personal, very polite... More

The room we had a great terrace overlooking the bay but the bathroom was small and we had twin beds zipped together with hard pillows. The hotel advertises two pools however the second... More

My wife and I flew to Sardinia for some rest and relaxation, after a most interesting, albeit, hectic week, traveling through Umbria. We chose El Faro based on a recommendation in one of the guide books we consulted and subsequent cross-referencing. We could not have been more please. The hotel lies on the lovely Bay of Conte, with calm waters... More

Spent 3 days in September. Charming place - beatiful sea landscape, friendly non-agressive staff. Top relaxing. Poor room accoustic insulation, so noisy neighbours might be a problem. Did not happen to us luckily :)

We spent 4 nights at El Faro at the end of June. It is our 5th time to Alghero and we got married at El Faro last year. The hotel is looking great and the setting and view is still as beautiful as ever. You must opt for a sea view room, it really is worth paying the extra as... More
