The room was clean, the bed was good.
All balconies were missing tables - strange!
The king-size bed was comfortable. The balcony was nice, as were the communal areas - the open quadrangle inside the hotel and the lounge, in particular, the latter being well air-conditioned and peaceful. The restaurant service was pleasant and efficient.
It was disappointing not to have a small fridge in the room to keep beer cold! Also, my wife complained about the absence of a hair dryer. I didn't mind the fact that there were no sandy beaches near the hotel, but it was a nuisance having to harzardously clamber over rocks and coral to reach a depth where it was safe to swim in the sea.
Close proximity to Alghero Old Town and sea front. Hb catering adequate and varied.
Slightly dated but very clean and staff very courteous.
Clean and tidy,pleasant surroundings,very helpful staff
Hotel El Balear has a very nice location and we were lucky to get a room with a wonderful seaside view and a fab balcony – room 67 if you wonder. The Hotel is clean and well kept, but could need a bit of refurbishment. Good service at the reception and good housecleaning.
The Hotel could need a bit of refurbishment; it looks a bit worn here and there. Your room door will shutter when the doors to the other rooms at your floor is shut and you will hear all other patrons leave to get the 06.00 flight to Rome. One morning there was a dreadful smell in the bathroom, I guess the pipes were dry and the sewer made the smell. A bit hard beds and pillows..
