If you want to get away from it all and enjoy the sun, the crystal clear water, good food and a nice hotel in a beautiful location then El Faro is the right choice. We spent 10 nights there and did not miss the city life at all. One day we went by bus to Alghero and had a wonderful seafood lunch at Ristorante 10 metri in the Centro Storico. We also walked the track through the National Park to Punta Giglio; a fantastic view of the sea and the special mountain formations. The rest of the time we spent at the hotel enjoying some lazy days. Try to get a sea view room, it is worth it to be able to listen to the "music of the sea" in the morning when you get up and at night before you go to bed.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with full sea view

We have had a wonderful stay at the El Faro hotel. A true and proper get away .... pools, sea, bar, views... lovely in every sense. The regular bus servics is regular but sort of 2 hourly regular and is a 45 min ride, often standing into Algehro.... not a hotel service so not a relfection on El Faro in any sense. Car hire is essential to get into Algehro and beyond. But the hotel itself is wonderful for being away from it all. Bosa is a must both asa driveand destination,

Room Tip: Upgrade to exec to get a sea view.... totally worth it

We spent 4 nights at El Faro at the end of June. It is our 5th time to Alghero and we got married at El Faro last year. The hotel is looking great and the setting and view is still as beautiful as ever. You must opt for a sea view room, it really is worth paying the extra as the scenary is simply breathtaking. Many thanks again to Giovanni and all his staff at El Faro whose service ensured our stay was perfect. It really was lovely to see you all again and we look forward to seeing you all again next year! I would most definitely recommend this hotel, especailly if you want somewhere romantic, secluded and away from the crowds. Would recommend hiring a car as the hotel is about a 20mins drive outside of Alghero.

Room Tip: Opt for a seaview if possible as the view is breathtaking.

My son's wedding was held in July at this fantastic Hotel, set in one of the most beautiful and exclusive spots of Sardinia with amazing panoramic views of the sea and the surrounding natural park of Port Conte. My husband and myself together with a number of other guests stayed at the Hotel for a number of nights and were extremely happy with the room, the breakfast and the Service provided by friendly and professional staff. The Wedding Celebration was an absolute success from every point of view. The service was superb and the food exquisite and the message from a number of guests I spoke to is clear. We want to return to El Faro next year. My thanks to Giovanni, Patrizia, Antonello, Nadia, the Chef and all the staff at El Faro.

Room Tip: we stayed in a second floor in room with a sea view which is very spacious and airy and the bed very confortable. Going back I would choose the same type of room.

My (somewhat demanding) girlfriend and I were looking to recharge our proverbial batteries in a quiet and comfortable place, while enjoying sun, sea and food. El Faro ticked all the boxes.

The sea (in a bay) is directly accessible, crystal clear and safe. Due to 'pool' ladders dotted around the seafront, it feels more like the sea is a huge private pool, nicely topped off with a floating platform about 100 metres in the bay.

Hotel facilities are superb - definitely a higher-end four star. Giovanni and his team were very helpful as well.

Even though the hotel was probably fully booked in the high season, one does not have a crammed 'Spanish costa' feeling. At lunch time, though, the wait times at the pool bar were perhaps a bit long. However, that's a minor gripe.

The dinner is good value, but recommend as well the nearby marina restaurant. Going to Alghero for dinner is a bit hit and miss based on own experience and talking to other guests.

All in all, a very good experience. The proof is in the pudding - my girlfriend wants to go back.

Room Tip: Go for the sea view room. The view is stunning.
