El Faro is a beautiful hotel in an idyllic location, surrounded by a national park. On arrival we got upgraded to a sea view room with a balcony (amazing view), room was pretty average (no tea/coffee, just a shower, no bath). We never ate dinner at the hotel, preferring to travel into Alghero, but the breakfast was nice and exactly... More

We've just returned from a one week stay at El Faro Hotel with another couple and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a wonderful location overlooking Capo Caccia and the bay around it. It is set apart from Fertilia and Alghero and ideal for relaxing as a result. Although the hotel was full, it never felt overcrowded.... More

We just got back from a week at El Faro. We flew into Alghero so only a 15 min transfer. We were upgraded to a room with a sea view and balcony which was lovely. The view is just stunning, the sea was so calm when we were there, very hot (about 30-36) so the air conditioning was very welcome!... More

Overall, this property is nice, but with its foibles. We had a family room, which is quite large and sleeps four nicely. There is no privacy in the room, but it does boast two bathrooms. One of our showers was consistently backing up and the same bathroom had mold growing on the walls and mirror. I reported the situation to... More

El Faro is a terrific hotel. From the moment we entered the front desk was welcoming and friendly. We were very early and while we waited we were offered breakfast and allowed to use all the facilities. Great pool and fabulous rock beach with lots of beds and umbrellas . Well done and comfortable. They upgraded us to a room... More

We had an enjoyable stay at the hotel. The staff were friendly within their comfort zone as long as you don't ask for anything 'strange' like a smoothie for the kids even though they serve all kinds of cocktails - maybe just lost in translation. The setting of the hotel is amazing. The food was an absolute disaster. We love... More

We love this hotel from a very start. Hotel send a driver to collect us from Alghero airport. Very nice reception on the arrival. Hotel overlooking on bay what makes you relax immediately even after long flight. Room was fantastic with view on bay and it has big size terrace. There is much more good to said about this hotel....

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.
