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!
