this is the second time i've stayed here and still very disappointed with the restaurant - its definitely not 4 star - they had the same limited dinner menu every day - and even then various items were unavailable - very lacking in choice and most annoying that the wonderful local food of sardegna is not represented - chef here...

Fabulous location. A lovely hotel, well maintained and great layout. I didn’t have a sea view with my room so have to admit the room was just OK, but the rest of the hotel made up for it. There are one or two aspects lacking for a 4-star hotel but overall the experience will not disappoint. You are a little... More

A wonderful place to go for a long weekend. Just a short taxi ride from the airport and you can relax and unwind whilst the sea gently laps at your feet. Very clean hotel. Room with a sea view is worth it. Spa treatments were very good. Staff all friendly. Would definitely recommend and would go back and stay again.

This was one of the best hotel stays ever. The hotel itself is presented very nicely, common areas are large and nicely decorated with classic and modern furniture. We purchased a sea view room with balcony, and indeed we were able to see the sea from 3 directions:) The staff is really helpful, speaks good English and often smiling. The... More

This place is not only super nice, but it also has an amazing location. It is in the middle of the national park, away from everything, and still only a few minutes from Alghero by car. You are close to diving, sailing, and hiking, altogether really nice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at the El Faro and would highly recommend it. It suited our needs perfectly. It’s a small, quiet hotel with charming staff and in a beautiful location. It was great to wake up in the morning with a superb view over the Porto Conte bay. We found our room extremely comfortable, clean and... More

We came back after a couple of years - and the place is as good as we remembered it. It is still quiet and secluded in the nature reserve, the forest is better than ever (more information and signage). The sea is wonderful,as long as you are not expecting sandy beaches. There is plenty of life in the sea -... More

We stayed six nights in a junior suite, which was very comfortable, and spacious. It had a lovely, large terrace, perfect for all day sun, and stunning sunsets. The hotel is lovely, with amazing views situated on Porto Conte, with panoramic views across the bay to Capo Caccia and a warm welcome. Everybody who worked there made our visit special,... More

Great location, good food, excellent water, fairly good beach - although it is on rocks and concrete, but the overall experience is good. However: they are thieves. We asked for 3 soft boiled eggs for breakfast. On previous days, we never had to sign anything (meaning it was included). However during the middle of our stay, suddenly the hotel decided... More
