Beautiful Hotel and Setting - Skip the Food
The location is absolutely peaceful and beautiful and the calm water in the bay meant easy paddleboarding and safe swimming. The hotel is also beautiful, and we loved sitting on our balcony watching the sunset. It would have been nice to sit there with tea and coffee in the morning, but unfortunately, there are no beverage facilities in the room. Sadly, the pool is barely heated and there is no hot tub, so we weren't able to get hang out in the pool very much. The real downside was the food. Breakfast was ok, but I wish the scrambled eggs hadn't been half raw. Dinner was medeocre, at best. It really made me wish there were other restaurants within walking distance.

Scenic location
Very nice, modern, comfortable hotel. Pristine condition throughout. Good sized bedroom with big balcony. Located about 15 minutes drive from Alghero. 2 smallish swimming pools but several access points to the sea. Parking a little limited but ok. Plenty of choice for breakfast.

Good 6.0
Nice building- service/restaurant poor
(1) Dinner in main restaurant very poor- No edible lobster in Chef’s recommended dish. Worst meal by far during stay of 7 nights in Alghero . (2) Service in restaurant very slow , and poor ( Manager of restaurant unapologetic, and unfriendly at end of meal ; Waiters generally friendly ). No desire to return after very poor experience. (3) Breakfast in Terrace disorganised on two morning out of five - No napkins, cutlery , and suchlike . (4) No tea/coffee- making facilities in bedroom. (5) No greeting at main door, particularly, assistance with heavy luggage. (6) No waiter service in sunbathing areas. (7) Staff courteous and friendly. (8) Room comfortable and clean.

Picture Postcard Perfect!
We arrived early afternoon and were told that check in is normally at 4pm. The hotel has rooms available the change in which, are well come equipped with towels, shower and toiletries. We changed and used the outdoor/indoor 'heated' pool and enjoyed a delightful lunch on the terrace overlooking a magnificent vista. Our room was ready around 330pm. The allocated room, 404 which is situated at the entrance overlooking the car park was in my opinion dated and not of an acceptable standard. It felt like you were detached from the main hub of the hotel. I pointed out my dissatisfaction and in all fairness the Receptionist quickly offered another room which, was acceptable and in line with my expectations. It was well appointed and impeccably clean. We ate in the main Restaurant on two evenings and the food was well presented. It doesn't come with a any set menu which is great . The A la Carte menu is varied and they also have Fresh Fish that you can choose and have cooked along with a selection of Daily Specials. Breakfast by Sardinian standards is good. It is buffet style with the usual line up of offerings. The main plus point of this hotel is its location. It is picture postcard perfect. If you are looking for an idyllic spot to re-charge then this place has all the attributes..... One note of caution though, make sure you have a car at your disposal as you will need new legs and feet if you are planning to explore the local area.

Fantastic location; the view across the bay was beautiful. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Good quality hangers which made a change from the motley collection one usually finds. Breakfast options must have covered most choices. Staff were very helpful and friendly; the head waiter exceptionally so. Downside? The hotel is away from the town, so if you do not want to eat in the restaurant every night (good food but static menu), you need to be able to drive. There is a mini bar in the room but if like me, you drink a lot of tea throughout the day, it has be be requested through either the bar or room service.

A nice spa option on the coast by Alghero
Got a slight rough start with slow check in and request to fill out a detailed privacy form, and they forgot our request for 2 twin beds and had to remake the large bed. But after that we had a nice stay really liking the property, its facilities and vantage point offering beautiful views.

Great place to stay but bring car
Bring a car or you will be ledt alone with only the hotel facilities. Good stay overall, breakfast could have more options

We really enjoyed the view !
We enjoyed an upgraded suite at the El Faro. It was spacious, clean, quiet, well appointed, with an outstanding balcony with view of the sea and the Capo Caccia. The staff were friendly and accomodating. The breakfast was spectacular buffet in a breakfast room overlooking the water. It was an amazing way to start each day ! A few notes to know: WiFi was provided but we found it inconsistent and only worked on our balcony. The issue was reported but not addressed during our stay. Also, there is a paid minibar provided in the room but no coffee/tea maker. The only way to get coffee or tea is from room service.
