Being a well-travelled swede, living in Sardinia with my sardinian wife. I/we have several times visited Alghero. Always staying in Bed&Breakfasts. Recently(Oct 2013) in Aba Maya. As can be expected from a good B&B it offered (at a reasonable rate) scrupuluosly clean facilities and a friendly host/manager putting a tasty and filling breakfast on the kitchen- table. But what, to... More

We went for this after a trip of high accommodation prices, even off-season, around Sardinia. We booked Big Fish at 50 euros per room per night. As many seem to be, we got bumped along to Abu Maya B&B (owned by same proprietor) on arrival, although there is probably little to choose between the 2 places (we hear). The room... More

We stayed in the Big Fish B&B, which is on the second floor of an apartment block. Rooms are spacious and clean, and the beds are quite comfortable. Franca was very helpful and gave us quite a lot of information on the best restaurants in town and how to get to certain attractions. Breakfast is simple with pre-packed croissants and... More

We had a long weekend stay and it was lovely to stay in a African themed room, could have been in a Masai Mara lodge without the animals!!! Ylenia and Franca are very lovely and helpful. We had beach towels provided and the sea water was crystal clear. A kettle would have me more useful in the self service kitchen... More

After my first trip to Alghero in July 2008, I returned this fall to stay at the Big Fish B&B to enjoy the beatiful city of Alghero and its wonderful genuine rural outskirts. And again: It was much worth it to choose the Big Fish B&B to feel like living like a real Sardinian. My thanks go to Franca, who... More

We stayed at the Aba Maya Alghero for a long weekend in Alghero. Keeping things short and simple: - Ylenia (the owner) and her mom (the owner of Big Fish) are simply delightful. They explained everything as soon as we got there and were more than willing to let us rack their brains on everything from what to do and... More

Some friends and I stayed at Big Fish for 3 nights in October 2010. Upon arrival Ylenia (Franca's daughter) made us feel right at home. The highlight of the trip was the leopard decorated rooms. They really are one of a kind! The beds were very comfortable and the neighborhood is quiet at night so we all slept very well.... More

We had booked Big Fish months in advance and arrived, after an 11 hour boat ride, in Alghero to find we were put in the sister-hotel Aba Maya. This was no problem and it was actually round the corner from where we were when we contacted the owner. The room was nice, the self-service breakfast room meant you could help... More

I've never written a Tripadviser review before but this experience should be shared: After doing some careful research on places to stay in Alghero for the first leg of our honeymoon in Sardinia, the Big Fish B&B looked just the ticket, so I emailed the owner and confirmed our booking with her several months in advance (stating that this was...
