My wife and I flew to Sardinia for some rest and relaxation, after a most interesting, albeit, hectic week, traveling through Umbria. We chose El Faro based on a recommendation in one of the guide books we consulted and subsequent cross-referencing. We could not have been more please. The hotel lies on the lovely Bay of Conte, with calm waters and hills in the distance. The hotel is about ten km. from Alghero, close enough to be able to drive into town at night for dinner and to partake in the nightlife, but far enough to enjoy the quiet and private relaxation the resort provides. The hotel is well run. The service is outstanding and the rooms and public ares are immaculate. The breakfast buffet is "to die for".

A special word for Giovanni. It was necessary that we be in contact with the Rome airport prior to our flight back to the US. We could not do this ourselves. Giovanni spent much time making calls for us. He and the rest of the staff were cheerful, helpful and made our stay most memorable. I wholeheartedly recommend El Faro and hope that you will be as pleased as we were.

Room tip: Choose a room with a view of the bay.
Date of stay: August 2013
Trip type: Traveled with family

Spent 3 days in September. Charming place - beatiful sea landscape, friendly non-agressive staff. Top relaxing.
Poor room accoustic insulation, so noisy neighbours might be a problem. Did not happen to us luckily :)

We had our wedding reception dinner party here & couldn't of asked for a more beautiful place, it literally is paradise, unspoilt views, clear blue sea, delicious food, a pool bar & tres chic pool parties! It's a 15 minute drive from the centre of Alghero & is on the bus route, but if your staying more than a couple of days, do invest in car hire as you'll get to enjoy the culture & romanticism of Alghero..winding cobbled streets, a laid back feel to life! Love it! & a big thank you to Mr. Greco the manager & his staff for the excellent service. :-)

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
