The only thing this hotel going for it are the gorgeous ocean view and pool area. Other than that, the room I stayed in smelled musty and the bed was hardly befitting a 4-star hotel. The walls between the rooms are paper thin. Why? Because on my second night, the loud snores from the next room which was a connecting... More

The location is fantastic, perfect for swimming and snorkelling, it's nice how they organised the outdoor space (pools and beach beds), however the level of the room is rather poor. I had a Deluxe double room with sea view, it's literally two separated rooms turned into one with a basic renovation plan, they just put down the wall that was... More

We enjoyed our shirt stay at Hotel El Faro in august 2014. The room view was breath-taking, nice decor and very spacious for us. Also the staff was really helpful and kind. The breakfast had a good and healthy variety of food. We could move easily by car in proximity to Alghero and Capo Caccia. We will surely come back... More

We stayed five days in August 2014. This is a nice, quiet hotel in a great location, in a national park, full of pine trees and great nature. Superb views, especially from the restaurant at sunset. Good rooms, well maintained. Good service, very helpful reception staff. About 30 minutes drive from the old city of Alghero, which is well worth... More

Three nights and four days with fine food, wonderful weather, sun and a beautiful clean sea. Excellent service, a beautiful room with plenty of space. Our second visit and it will not be our last. We felt no need to go anywhere else and did not. Thank you.

First thing to mention about this hotel is that if you are planning to stay here make sure to rent a car otherwise you will need a good amount of money for taxis as the area Porto Conte is really secluded. The resort itself is really nice with the most breathtaking views ever. Internet in rooms is NOT for free... More
