Great place, away from tourist crowds. First impression after long travel - restaurant and bar all in white confirming great Italian style. Room (family room) was spacious and nicely decorated (lamps would need stronger fixing..). Great selection and fantastic view in the restaurant for breakfast.

The headland location by the old lighthouse is superb, and the swimming area by the rocks is better than a swimming pool. My only tip would be to avoid trying to find it in the dark unless you have satnav as roadsigns aren't English standard and can't be seen well at night.

We only stayed two nights but wished it were longer. The hotel was modern and clean with great facilities. We hired bikes and went cycling in the nearby park and hired snorkeling gear. Our room had a sea view and was clean and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant one night and although the food was good, the service was... More

Very nice hotel with excellent service and beautiful suroundings. Perfect for shorter hikes. The online less good thing was the food. It wasnt bad, just not as nice as the rest of the hotel. Would recommend to others!

I enjoy the stay at the El Faro Hotel very much. The food was really extraordinary. The Room service was great. We needed a more stiff mattress and we got immediately an other one to our demand. The hotel is beautifully situated and the area has several attractions. During our next stay at Sardinia we will stay again

The stay was simply amazing. We enjoyed the unique location of the hotel, in a natural park, with awesome views on the sea and sunset. The access to sea is perfect for snorkeling. It was easy to park a quick to drive at this time of the year. So we think the hotel is a perfect base for visiting Sardinia... More

The El Faro hotel is a great place to stay when looking for a holiday on the north-west side of Sardinia. The hotel is located directly at the sea and offers everything for relaxing with a very beautiful view. The only point is that the food for dinner I would not recommend instead of that we preferred to go into... More
