This hotel is situated right next to one of the Porto Conte national park parts (literally accessible by 5 minutes walking distance) so if you like a stride in nature, this is your hotel to visit Alghero and its surroundings. I do recommend being with a car in Sardinia in general (so as to be able to explore) but especially... More

3 day stay with family in a suite. The location of this hotel is great, although at a 16km distance from Alghero (nearest town). Its location with sea at 3 sides is just amazing. Swimming is predominantly in the sea by three access points. There is also a swimming pool, but we preferred the sea. The suite was nicely appointed,... More

it will be more easy to get any beach or city center if you rent a car in Alghero. Rooms are clean, breakfast buffet has many options but sometimes you need to wait for coffee or tea. Swimming pool is small. I would like to bring up to your attention that you need to check the sea before you get... More

The ambiance of the El Faro is magical and romantic with views of an emerald sea to match. Quiet and secluded not to far away from the more bustling streets in Alghero. I would make sure I had a sea view room with French doors and billowing white sheer curtains. I cannot say enough about Deborah who is a wonderful... More

Fantastic Location, friendly staff. Amazing sea view. Breakfast was great! Nice loungers by the sea. We have rented a car, so location was good for us. Close to the airport.Lots of parking spaces and the parking is free.

It was perfect . Beautiful situation, spacious rooms, breathtaking views, great staff and a good spa but you have to walk many stairs to get to the pool, and the sea is only accessible by narrow paths and over rocks. There are many beautiful platforms cut out in the rocks to sunbathe .What a lovely place.

The hotel location was perfect for a relaxing break. This was our last hotel on our Sardinian trip and really fantastic. The views were stunning of the bay and a relaxing hotel. The room was perfect and maintained to a high standard. All staff extremly attentive. Breakfast selection good, hot and cold. You should organise a car otherwise isolated, but... More

The hotel is just perfect to enjoy the maritim lifestyle of the Mediterrean. Build on a small rocky penisula, the hotel offers countless cozy and private places to enjoy sun and sea. Breathtaking views! Staff is very friendly and helpful. We only missed the same cozy and stylish atmosphere in their restaurants, where both food and design can't keep up... More

We ended a 5 week European adventure here, and couldn't be happier. Upon arriving, we were upgraded from a comfort to a superior and the view was sublime. We had plans to explore the surrounding area while we were here, but couldn't bring ourselves to leave, except for a dinner break in alghero, because, as other reviewers mentioned, the restaraunt...

Great location, right on the rocky foreshore on the Porto Conte peninsula, looking westwards across the bay to the fabulous Capo Caccia headland. Yes it is quite remote, a good 20 minutes by car from the delightful town of Alghero. A car is essential. The hotel is beautiful, spotlessly clean, modern, and taking full advantage of the great views. The... More
