We stayed here for 2 nights in early June. The place is in a nice location. They have a nice outdoor patio with bar. You can also rent bikes. I would go there again. It's not a luxury hotel, but it is a good value! We didn't try the restaurant of the hotel.

The only negative experience from my entire séjour throughout Sardinia. If you are looking for a hotel to stay in for one night before you fly home as a matter of convenience, this hotel fits the bill. Very well located also without doubt. Granted the sewage system in Sardinia is below average and rotten smells exist in certain streets, the... More

Starting with Luccia and Mauro at the front desk to Maria in the breakfast room the staff are great - helpful charming happy all the things you want in a hotel. We took one of the last rooms - as this was a vacation without pre-booking so we got what we got. It had a little balcony - peekaboo view... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. Fantastic Location over looking the sea with a great little bar right next door to it and a beach bar across the road. This is not the Ritz but it is defiantly great value for money! Staff were very friendly. Only tip I would give is ask for your air con rot... More

A group of us stayed in this hotel. We booked a mix of rooms double, twin, triple, single. All were perfect for us. Very clean and just what you need. Showers a little small but did the job. Staff very nice and helpful. Hotel Wifi you need to go to reception and get your pass and to note it is... More

The location is great: 5 mints walking distance from the old town with a large variety of bars and restaurants. The staff at the reception are friendly and welcoming. We were lucky to have a room with sea view which made all the difference. The room was cleaned but needed a full refurb (especially the bathroom). The breakfast is very... More

We had a wonderful stay at El Balear. The 5 stars are given mainly for the excellent service and for the view. Not all the rooms have sea view, so be sure to ask for one of these. Excellent location in easy walking distance of the old town and port. We were there with our 2 children, 2 and 4... More

We had a very small, basic and old-fashioned room on the 2nd floor, at the back of the hotel, with view on the back of a social housing block that was shielded with metal grilles and with barbed wire! If you're not depressed yet, you might become it here. We asked for an other room but the unfriendly clerk at... More

We stayed one night, the room was old but clean, the hotel is some 10 minutes walk to the old town. Low season price is reasonable, during high season it would be far too expensive for what you get. Breakfast could be better, e.g. with a real Italian coffee or a real fruit salad.

Very pleased that we chose to stay at the El Balear. Excellent location in easy walking distance of the old town and port. We would recommend hiring bikes from the hotel and cycling along the promenade. We also loved the Riservato beach bar just across the road where we got a good discount on sunbeds because we were guests at... More
