We had a great week stay at this hotel. The hotel is on a peninsular and, you feel like you are on an island. The hotel is spotless and has a lovely open space feeling. It has a real tranquil feel to it. Wifi is available throughout the hotel for free. We had a room with a balcony which was... More

We managed to get this hotel at what I now consider to be a good, fair price. Not cheap but not ridiculous. On that basis we really liked it. We had a junior suite. The room was great. The breakfast was good but the best bit is the sun lounger positions scattered along the cliffs and the superb swimming conditions... More

We spent the last nights of our 2-week holiday in Sardinia at the El Faro Hotel. A 4-star hotel that used to be a 5-star hotel. We booked one of the 'cheaper' rooms of 99 euro per night, which is no bad deal regarding it's location and the fact it is including breakfast. The location of the hotel is brilliant.... More

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
