“Its all about the beach!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Even the comically tiny shower stall, tiny elevator, mediocre restaurant, and somewhat small rooms were not enough to disuade us from returning to Dei Pini because of it's prized asset: Their own private white sandy beach on a crystal clear cove that also has their own little reef to snorkel on!

We were forced from our beachfront room because of a powerful smell apparently due to a faulty sewage vent system, which was seriously dissappointing since the remainder of our stay was facing the parking lot. Staff was accomodating and friendly, the location was great because it's a short drive to Alghero, and other sites.

Lots of people complained about the breakfast, but we found it excellent because of the super fresh fruit they served every day, and they had enough items to make it interesting each morning.

If you're handicapped, you need to know parking is on a dirt lot, and access to the beach is 2 flights of stairs with no elevator. It was difficult to find at first because it's not on the GPS, but there was a sign from the main road.

This is not a 4 star hotel in the U.S., but this seems to be par for the course in European hotel ratings. It's a good beach hotel!

Room Tip: Each room had a small balcony, but it's well worth getting the beach side! Families should ask...

I returned from one week stay in Hotel Dei Pini last Thursday. I traveled with my family consisting of two adults and two small children. We liked our vacation in hotel Dei Pini very much. Hotel itself would need a bit renovation. However the beach and sea are beautiful. Exactly as on advertising pictures. Access to the water is pleasant for children and elderly people. Sand is white and smooth. Water was clean and crystal clear. At the beginning of our stay staff showed us our sunbeds and we had them reserved for whole week. So there was no hurry for sunbeds in the morning. Even if you came in the afternoon you could be sure you have you place. Hotel does not charge anything extra for sunbeds and sunshades. Food was good. Morning buffet was still the same. But if you come only for a week there is still choice. We liked evening appetizers consisting mainly from vegetables, fishes, etc.. Main food was for me without taste. We went for this trip mainly because of the sea, and with this aim we were fully satisfied,

Room Tip: Choose seaview room.

The hotel has a great location and great view and the staff are friendly.
However, the rooms are quite old fashioned, but clean, and really need a refurb. The breakfast is quite boring and limited for a 4 star hotel.
Unfortunately all the services you expect to be included in a 4 star hotel are added extras- internet, bikes, beach towels and you get a nice little hotel credit card to charge everything to.
Just OK, a bit overpriced for what you get, you are definitely paying for the views

We had our daughters wedding at the hotel on june 4th 2012 and what a wonderful experience! The hotel staff were absolutely fantastic, the food was excellent, and everyone was so helpful. If we ever return to Alghero we would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: sea view with balcony

We have just returned from our second stay at this wonderful hotel and yet again have all enjoyed a superb holiday.
The location is perfect - far enough away from Alghero to enjoy quiet and peace - yet near enough to be able to drive in within 10 minutes - which we did most evenings after dinner.
The food was delicious and the staff very friendly making us feel relaxed and welcome from the moment we arrived.
The swimming pool is an excellent addition and well used by our daughters who flitted daily between beach and pool.

Room Tip: a room with a sea view is a must

Me and my husband stayed for a week in may at hotel dei pini. It is located on the most amazing private beach. Such beautiful scenary. There is the woods and the garden located at the front of the hotel and the beach at the back. And yes the water does look exactly like the pictures. An amazing bluey turqoise colour.

We had a wonderful stay here. However, as many have said before the location is not ideal. You need a car. We didnt bring ours but managed to walk to fertilia and took daily bus trips to alghero. However, at non season times buses do not arrive regulary.

The hotel service was great but we felt not all the information was given to us. For example, no one old us what the card with the chip was for. Also we had to ask about activities and services instead of being offered this info. We found the hotel to be quite expensive in terms of food and drink. In alghero you can have two or three meals instead of one at the hotel.

Everything else was good. Its very picturesque and peaceful with an excellent view. The beach was the highlight for us.

There is also a ping pong table hidden downstairs as you walk down to the beach. This was great fun. People were also very friendly here and in alghero.

We stayed at the hotel from 16-20 may 2012 and enjoyed our stay from the first minute to the last. The staff is very kind and helpsome. They speak every language at the reception.
Our stay made it more pleasant while we had a rental car and visited the surroundings. Alghero town, especially the old town is really worth a visit. Typical italian old town with narrow streets and lots and lots of restaurants with good food.
We had all our dinner meals at the hotel and were very pleased by it. They change the menu every day and have it available at the door of the restaurant from the morning, so you can decide if it's worth to have your dinner there. Prices range from 8-10 euro for starters and 10-12 euro for the main meal. In other words affordable.
We are definitly going there next year.
Regards
Henk & Sylvi

Room Tip: Get a room with a seaview. Hearing the waves in the morning while wakening is relaxing!!!
