There are very few hotels I would return to but Hotel El Faro is one of a small minority that I would choose due to its location and attentive staff. We spent a week at this hotel and found it to be a very friendly place, without getting hit in the wallet for anything at all. This cannot be said... More

We flew into Olbia and hired a car. When we googled at home, journey time was approx 1 hour 10. It took over 2 hours to get to the hotel, our fault! First impressions were not that brilliant. Star rating of 4, probably because of mini bar and safe in room. First room which was apparently an upgrade was very... More

The hotel has a clean and tasteful decor and a stunning seafront location. Situated adjacent to a nature reserve and facing a magnificent vista. Although fully book the hotel nor the seaside and pool area never felt crowded.

Stayed for one week in this lovely, ocean front hotel. Quiet and peaceful with a dip in the ocean very close by. Great service and clean rooms. The hotel was fully booked the whole week but it never felt crowded. Excellent!

Was apprehensive after reading some of the reviews for this place. But on our arrival. . I loved it. We were pleased to find we'd been upgraded to a suite. What a beautiful setting. I took my girlfriend for the weekend, Fri morning - sun morning. The staff were pleasant, the hotel was clean, the bed was comfortable, bathroom was... More

We got a superior sea view room on the 2nd floor which was basic but clean and all we wanted. We loved the sea view and slept with the balcony doors open so we could listen to the gentle waves at night. The doors were fitted with fly screens so we didn't worry about flies/mosquitoes coming in - although we... More

Travelling around Sardinia we booked in for one night, as unfortunately they were fully booked for the remainder of the week. Wish we could have stayed longer. Seems to have been recently re-decorated so was very pristine and relaxing environment. The double bed was slightly on the small side in our standard room. Bathroom, lovely marble tiles, shower and all... More

Wonderful hotel with a beautiful view ! Very clean and comfortable rooms. Everything was perfect and the personal very kind. The terrace is a perfect place to have a relaxed breakfast or aperitive with view on the bay.

El faro is a lovely hotel on the Porto Conte, about 12km from Alghero centre. We really enjoyed our stay this week in this idyllic scenic setting. Upon arrival we were greeted quickly and informed our room would be 2 more hours which was fine as we arrived early, and a courtesy room was offered to get into our pool... More

It's difficult to find serious fault with this place. The view is genuinely excellent. The rooms are very very good indeed and don't fall far short of truly luxurious. The breakfast is great, the pool is pretty nice too and there are several places that you can jump into the sea from. The slight negatives (and these would not stop... More
