Awesome and unique location. We had the best Moscow Mule at the bar ever, made by a very nice guy called Andrea. Breakfast and rooms are OK, but you have to take a room with full seaview... Awesome view..

Excellent location with stunning view to Capo Caccia also known as “ The sleeping giant”. Super friendly and helpful service. Room was very nice, clean and with sea view from a large balcony. A preferred choice in this area!

El Faro is a unique place located in a bay of its own near one of the tips of the North West Sardinia. LOCATION Could not be better. SUNSETS Breathless. Romantic. Spectacular. SWIMMING A seawater pool is 18m long and usually empty, an unnecessary bit too much chlorine in it for my taste. But provides for a lovely morning swim. Sea tends to be calm in the mornings and evenings. Buoys mark a lovely stretch of 120 meters of sea swimming along the coast. KIDS Although not prohibited, they don’t seem to be encouraged. And that is how it should be. One comes here to find a tranquil quiet spot, not a noisy Italian sand beach with music and huge crowds. FOOD AND DRINKS Over five days, anything we ordered was good to superb. No fault, no mistake. If you are into cocktails, a gentleman named Andrea is ready to do his work and he is genuinely happy to bump into a client who knows his ABC about mixology and cocktails. Superb English, extremely courteous and ready to customize the drinks according to your taste. Old school, good school. ACCESS FROM ALGHERO AIRPORT 12 minutes drive SERVICE The staff really do try hard and do their best. Efficient, friendly, communicative and knowledgeable. From the front desk all the way to the pool guy. And you know this is fairly hard to find in Italy. ALL IN ALL This place has all the glamor of Hollywood movies happening in Italy without being pretentious or snobbish. Cool in all respects. Pricey but worth it. Please bring me back ASAP.

We have just finished a 4 night stay at this amazing hotel and we did not want to leave! All staff are extremely nice and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a deluxe room which had a terrace with 180 degree views of the gorgeous bay. There was barely anyone staying at the hotel and on one day we had the pool to ourselves. The beach area does not have sand, but has rocks with ladders which you use to get into the water. The water is unbelievably clear it is just beautiful. Great selection on the menu for breakfast and lunch, lunch was a reasonable price too. We hired a car from the airport which is definitely needed as the hotel is quite out the way. We will definitely be staying again if we return to Sardinia!

El Faro is in a wonderful location, looking over a secluded bay. It has its own patch of coast that is completely private. Access to the sea is by ladders and very easy even for those less confident about sea swimming. The water is crystal clear and lovely to swim in. The hotel itself is very clean and comfortable and the staff are fantastic - very kind and helpful. Breakfast and lunch were excellent, and for the most part dinner was very good as well. Perhaps, the restaurant is a bit expensive for what you get, but the setting is so beautiful it doesn't really matter. It's important to know that the hotel is about 20 minutes from Alghero and a taxi is 30 euros, so having your own car is probably a good idea if you want to eat away from the hotel. All in all, a wonderful place and they also take Covid precautions very seriously.
