Stayed in October. Wonderful weather, clear blue skies, crystal clear water and balmy evenings. The hotel is a mix of interesting architectural features, all somewhat out of sync with each other. Lots of white and chrome. Bit isolated, tad expensive for what you get. 32 euros for the dinner menu, which looked good but for a family of four and...

If you want a taste of paradise you should do like my husband and I do every Summer since years back: spend a couple of weeks at El Faro! Far away from confusion, noise and stress, instead you get a beautiful, stunnig part of mother nature when it shows up it´s very best! A wonderful water to swim in where...

We chose the El Faro hotel as a venue for our wedding reception as the setting and hotel is second to none. The views across the bay are stunning and the hotel itself is beautiful. We, and all of our guests, had a truly amazing day and the staff were so helpful and polite. The location is great for holiday...

If you go to Alghero don't miss this magnificent hotel. A white palace though a rustic and simple one will await you. Impeccable service full of warmth, beautiful rooms (ask for one with a view), gorgeous sun-bathing in total privacy, exquisite food, and a staff with a built-in smile. I only offer one piece of advice. Freshen up the spa....

We booked this hotel at the last minute after a very disappointing experience in another part of Sardinia. We were so happy that we did. From the first moment we arrived, the staff couldn't do enough for us. Without even asking we were upgraded to a suite. The room itself was fantastic. It was large, had two bathrooms o(ne each)...

We had a fantastic visit to El Faro Hotel in Italy. The location is amazing on a cliff and the water is clear blue. We met very friendly staff that made our stay so nice. It is a bit outside Alghero, and it was very calm, which I think is great for relaxation and vaccation.

Pros: rooms clean (but relatively small). Cons: - no wireless or wired internet (although we had been promised that in advance). Just checking your emails on Blackberry will run you frightening roaming fees. - no beach - pool is not heated, hence 19°C (in October) - meal quality is unpredictable: sometimes decent, other times totally unacceptable (e.g. EUR for a...
