The location is stunningly beautiful with it's own private beach, which is perfect if you like a rocks over sand. The people are very nice and willing to help. The food in the restaurant was excellent quality, but a little pricey. Breakfast was very good. The lobbies and general areas are well maintained. The only problem is the sea view room that we had was very 'tired'. It had a beautiful view but the windows wouldn't close, the toilet seat was loose, the wall mounted lamps were loose and the air conditioning was almost non-existent. We felt the quiet location, private beach, nice staff and stunning views made up for the problems in the room and would probably try it again.

Stayed in October. Wonderful weather, clear blue skies, crystal clear water and balmy evenings. The hotel is a mix of interesting architectural features, all somewhat out of sync with each other. Lots of white and chrome. Bit isolated, tad expensive for what you get. 32 euros for the dinner menu, which looked good but for a family of four and wine, it's quite a lot. Like staying on a set for a 70's Bond film, including grotto!

If you want a taste of paradise you should do like my husband and I do every Summer since years back: spend a couple of weeks at El Faro! Far away from confusion, noise and stress,
instead you get a beautiful, stunnig part of mother nature when it shows up it´s very best!
A wonderful water to swim in where you manage to distinguise every type of sea-creature.
Great possiblities to relaxe on the deck prepared with sun-beds while whatching the sun go down. Rooms with a balcony are a must, you take the wonderful view with you and enjoy
the beatuy of the room preparing yourself for a fantastic dinner in the dining-room! The cooks have done there best to offer you all the tastes from the region, add to that a good wine from a wine-yard next by! The service is excellent, very helpful and pleasant personal who make evry effort to make you feel special. Closer like his to paradise you can not get!

Lovely hotel in a beautiful setting.

Positives:
- Amazing sea view, make sure you get a room with a sea view.
- we loved the 'beach' cut into the cliff face... Great if you are not a fan of sand
- very good customer service, friendly staff
- stylish terrace area, for drinks, also has free wifi access, which almost makes up for no Internet in the rooms

Negatives:
You need to have a car
I got stung by a jelly fish!
Dinner is too formal, but there is a great casual resaturant called Embarcador 2 mins down the road.
Rooms could be better, more 3 star than 4 star, but the sea view makes up for it.

We chose the El Faro hotel as a venue for our wedding reception as the setting and hotel is second to none. The views across the bay are stunning and the hotel itself is beautiful. We, and all of our guests, had a truly amazing day and the staff were so helpful and polite.

The location is great for holiday goers who prefer a tranquil setting but who still want to explore the town of Alghero. There are regular buses to and from Alghero right to the hotel door - the last of which returns just prior to midnight.

The hotel has just had a new bar installed on the terrace with all new, modern day beds and sofas - it looks very modern and chic.

The upper pool area is a fantastic spot for sun bathing and swimming still benefitting from views across the bay. There are loungers placed down on the rocky terraces leading down to the sea - a perfect spot to take advantage of the sea breeze on the warm summer days. You can swim in the sea out to a small bathing pontoon.

We visited the El Faro several times prior to our wedding and were very happy to recommend the hotel to our guests as a place to stay whilst in Sardinia. We had a total of 20 guests who booked rooms in the hotel and everyone was extremely impressed. So beautiful is the hotel and views that 2 of my friends were actually moved to tears!

We had a total of 34 guests who attended our drinks reception at the El Faro followed by a traditional 6 course Sardinian evening meal. Everyone thinks that their wedding day is the best - but thanks to the El Faro .... ours truly was!

For those thinking of getting married in Sardinia we would highly recommend the El Faro. We would also suggest contacting Colleen at Weddings In Sardinia www.weddingsinsardinia.com who helped arrange everything for our special day. She was an absolute star!
