the staffs willingness to ensure a good time was had, they went out of their way to deliver great service. the beach facilities where perfect for us. the pool was great quite expensive for general food and beverage services
wonderful location, luxury hotel, well maintained and well run
The hotel has a very dramatic location and was of a high standard The bed was a little hard and the "suites" or family rooms makes the hotel a popular choice for families with young children.
Perfect - romantic location Great location Amazing views
We chose El Faro because of its location and that it had a fitness room.Very serviceminded staff! Quiet and peaceful. Very nice view. We are very satisfied with our stay there. It would be great if they played some music in the restaurant at nights. It was very quiet and it felt like we had to "wisper" to each other. The food in the restaurant was very good. If they had some music in the speakers it would feel more "welcome" and I'm sure we had used the restaurant more during our stay. The beds/madrasses were a little hard. There were lots of mosquitos in Sardinia these days and it would be great to be informed that we shouldn't keep the door open at night etc. and use mosquito prevention. We didn't know so we slept with the door open and next morning we had bites all over... The next day we asked in the reception and they gave us instructions about closing the door and the use of a small electrical device.
staff facilities advetised such as the gym were not available
The rocks - the wather - all around the hotel with the beautifull vue I could have prefere a buffe with salat, some small italian spciality and maby a littel beef or a fisch insted of the menucart at lunch
Very nice view from the room, very friendly people especially in the restaurant, very quiet and romantical place... Beach not so easy accessable by rocks, rather expensive,
couldn't eat or drink in certain areas outside
Stunning spot and amazing seaview. Beautifull rooms. The kindness of the staff The food quality at dinner is not to the average standard of the hotel.
location - about 10 mins walk from old town and about 10 mins walk to clean snady part of beach slightly expensive out ot season
i didnt like anything in this very bad hotel isnt a 4 stars, one star is enough
The view basically, however we didn't spend much time in the hotel as it was just somewhere to sleep after a long day exploring. The hotel staff were friendly and the room was clean, I would suggest that towels are replaced every day as there isn't the facility to dry them.
The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel at home from when we checked in. Also the location was great, it is located a short walk from the old town, port, and the beaches which was very convenient.
The hotel is well kept with large rooms comfortable rooms. It is ideally located half way between the old town and the beach. I also enjoyed the breakfast which had a wide selection of food.
Very nice friendly staff. Good location ... not right in the centre, but a short walk away from both beach & town centre. Nice weather. Coffee at breakfast wasn't great (tasted instant)
Sitting on the 3rd floor terrace in the sun
Location was very good. Friendly and helpful staff. In order to get breakfast you had to be there very early. Exchange of towels and linen could be more frequent.
the staff was very friendly, the location was convenient. The breakfast was good
Hotel is in a perfect location. Though in a quiet and otherwise uninteresting street, it is right in the middle between the historic centre and the lido, and just couple of blocks from bus station. It's clean and tidy, with neat Sardinian furnishing and mediteranean feel. The breakfast was very good, with lots of choice. If you are looking for seaside view or beach hotel, this won't be your choice. For anything else, go ahead.
Breakfast, location and parking Dinner was just ok
Room was really spacious, modern and bed was huge!!! room and hotel very clean and service very professional. hotel is very close to old town which is very important after massive seafood dinner in one of great restaurants:) we really enjoyed our stay!! bar could be open late night:))
Nice short break , The staff were friendly and very helpfull, Good location just 10 minutes walk to the old town. Rooms were kept very clean We Stayed for 3 nights and the cost was about 900 Euro's, Very dissapointed in the Hotel in relation to value for money.
The staff was friendly and helpful, the room comfortable, and the view stunning. Very nice breakfast with good service, too.
The freindliness of most of the staff. That is worth more than other factors considered in a hotel The bed is more rigid than I would prefer, but that is a personal preference.
Hotel is in a very good location within walking distance to the Old Town. Staff were very helpful with suggestions during our stay. Nothing of note.
Beautiful uninterrupted sea views from room and one of the best restaurant views in Alghero Rooms are a bit dated, bathrooms small and expensive for what it was (€340 per night) but then again Alghero in top season is.
The hotel is very nice, comfortable, with a good design, overlooking the sea. Rooms are big and comfortable. Good sound isolation in the rooms. The hotel should not be rated as a 5 star! This is no more than a 4 star hotel. The air conditioner can be switched off only by the staff, you cant ajust it in the room. No complimentary (even) water at arrival. Breakfast is a complete disaster: the choice is limited up to eggs and bacon. The nearest beach is 5 km from the hotel. Some of the staff is very nice and helpfull, some is not even saying "hello".
Nice bedroom and a good breakfast Prices for everything else, e.g. drinks, food, minibar was completely unreasonable and prohibitive
location to centre of town Breakfast Staff unfrienly
Location very close to lungomare and airport only 15 min drive Staff was not helpfull and not friendly. We arrived late saturday evening, o parking space available (hotel has no parking, even though this is a 4 star hotel) I have never had so bad value for money.
Perfect cituated with a wonderful view. The room smelled bad, probably due to the drain wich seemed to not work correctly.
In centre. Car Parking. Ease to find. Breakfast good.
Location was excellent!
room was comfortable
Breakfast was great, and location was very good also, staff where very helpful also. None at all.
The room service and cleaning was excellent. The hotel is probally the best in Algero. The rooftop bar is spectecular offering a view of the old town and bay. It is located opposite a park and within 3 mins walk to the bay and 5 mins to all the cafe bars and shopd. The bus to the airport is outside the hotel and only costs €1.oo. If you dont like Italian food Mc Donalds is three doors away from the Hotel.The continental breakfast was very good it had hot scrambelled eggs and toast as well as all types of cold cheeses, meats fruits, cereals, and sweet cakes the rolls and bread were lovely.Alghero is a great place for a quiet relaxing holiday not for teenage kids as there are no discos or loud pubs.Lovely cafe bars and winding streets. We stayed in the first week in November. This was out of season and the hotel restaurant was closed.Also the rooftop bar in the hotel closes at ten pm monday to Friday and 11pm at weekends.Looking at the phots of the hotel I thought there was a balcony in the rooms there is not. The only outdoor area is the sliding glass partition on the rooftop bar. In the summer there is no place in the hotel to sit outside. There is no swimming pool but that seems to be the case for most hotels in Sardinia.
The location is perfect, staff is friendly and the rooms are very clean. The views, the skybar and the breakfast are the selling points of this hotel. I was however disappointed with the room as from the pictures you expect something really spacious and luxurious and it was actually quite plain and small. I also expected a balcony, but we got a room with 2 small windows instead. We did have the nice view, but it didn't really meet up to my expectation after seeing the grand pictures online.
Very central with excellent views. The floor I was on [7th.] had very impressive views of the bay. Breakfast was taken on the top floor [but only because the dining room was being redecorated] That was great! don't change this idea. A pool would be welcome expecially after a day's sightseeing.
Beautiful, light and airy family room (with flat screen TV/Sky) with some of the friendliest staff we have come across. Hotel isnt pretty from the outside but is seconds from the beach and a 10 minute walk into the old town of Alghero. We would recommend this hotel and hope to stay again soon ourselves. Only small gripe, breakfasts are basic but fine.
The hotel was clean and comfortable but not luxurious. The staff especially the reception staff were excellent, helpful and friendly. THe room was spacious with a pleasant shower room and balcony which just about had a view of the sea. The seafront was 30 metres away. Breakfasts were plentiful. Sky TV was available but sometimes unpredictable. Poor soundproofing between rooms.
Helpful staff spoke good English, walking distance to the town. Good for short stay.
very friendly and extremely helpful staff,with excellent english,right in the centre of town,and across from beach.easy walking distance from old city. the walls in the rooms are very thin!!!so you can hear everything going on in next room.
Friendly and accommodating staff. Wonderful scenery within easy reach.Parking just outside the hotel ideal for my elderly mother. Nothing to do with the hotel but car hire via an internet link to Hertz was unsatisfactory due to the hidden cost of "extra" insurance. The hotel does provide a car hire service (although having payed a huge price I did not enquire as to the cost). People should be warned!
very conveinient,about 15 min walk into town,excellent value for money. not really as you get what you pay for, it is not a 5 star hotel,but for ashort break it is ideal.
Great location, right by the beach, with a lovely walk to the old city. Very nice breakfast selection The heating/AC unit wasn't very effective with heating (off-season visit).
The location was perfect, really close to the beach, few minutes walking to the city center. Silent. Room was really nice and confortable. Clean. TV (loats of chanels), climatisation working well. Everything seems to be renewed in the room. Nice furniture, hairdryer in bathroom. No seaside room, but it is not such a disadvantage, as the other seaside hotels might be really noisy during night (as there is a street between the sea and the hotels close to the sea),
the staff hospitality charge for motorcycle parking
friendly staff; location of the hotel
Great location, five minutes walk to the town. The pools were amazing & the rooms were quiet. Ideal for relaxing.
We thought it was wonderful, a real treat. The food was excellent and staff extremely courteous and helpful. The bedrooms where kept spotless. Ideal for us both. Whether swimming in the sea or pool, or using the free bicyles. Easy to walk into the main part of the town. The only small criticism was the contrast in 'luxury' of the concrete areas where one is able to swim in the sea. Perhaps more could be done to improve this area - it seemed very crude in comparison to the wonderful gardens. Also the indoor pool didn't appear to be available whilst we were there - which wasn't a problem of course as the weather was good.
the hotel setting a beautiful private beach and location
The hotel was very comfortable, staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Alles mattress slightly to hard
the whole experience was wonderful, the staff were very friendly and the location is idyllic
Location was amazing. It felt secluded perched on its promentory but was very accessible for the old town of Alghero - just a 10 minute stroll to all amenities. The view from the pool and sun terrace was enchanting and we were lucky enough to see dolphins at play in the sunset on our last night (from the hotel terrace). Service and attention to detail was first class and staff could not have been more helpful. The whole place had a feeling of old-fashioned ambience and style. We will be back!
This is an outstanding hotel, that is secluded and with friendly and helpful staff. The beds were extremely comfortable. At the height of the tourist season, this was like an oasis in a very busy seaside resort and we could relax and enjoy the pool and the sea in peace and comfort. There was a lack of information about facilities (such as a day changing and shower area outside) and brochures for outside activities.....the only very minor quibble!
Beautiful hotel; perfect location; friendly staff
the staff were very good, the relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, the grounds were fab. The bed was extremley hard it would be the only thing that would put me off going back.
Hotel staff were very helpful and had good english. The room was bright, a good size and very clean. The breakfast was good. The hotel is 10 minutes walk from the centre of Alghero and about 20 minutes to the beach. I like walking so this was not a problem but a car would be needed if you are staying for longer then a few days.
Great friendly staff Fair distance from town
Close to city center and a quite location. Easy to park
modern hotel, rooms have comfortable large bed
breakfast, cleanliness of room, staff thin walls
nice quiet area. staff friendly. no pool or restaurant at hotel. breakfast very basic. beds & pillows too hard. only 1 english speaking channell on tv.
breakfast! bad wine (bottle open too long?) at the bar
Very comfortable, clean hotel with good breakfast buffet.
Quiet residential area, 12 minute walk to city center.
The staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The breakfast was lovely with fresh coffees prepared to order Nothing - perfect
My stay was wonderful. Staff is very nice and accommodating. They'll go out of their way to help you. The hotel is very quirky. I'll advice everybody to stay there, either as a couple oras a family. Great location, for the river, the see and not far from the lovely town of Alghero. Great stay and great food. I will stay there again. Nothing was too much for the helpful staff. I wouldn't change anything.
I have stayed at the hotel before and the previous experience was so good, another trip was required. Overall I can easily describe my stay as fantastic! A beautiful hotel in an equally beautiful city. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was no different from the previos stay - delicious! The room was clean and luxurious. I will be recommending this hotel to family and best friends.
the young lady at reception was super friendly and forthcoming! The room was old fashioned and didn't match up with our expectations breakfast room is super narrow and unpleasant. No hot water in the shower in the morning
I loved the big spacious room and the big terracce! Staff spoke english well - except staff at the breakfast buffét.
Location of the hotel was excellent, staff very friendly, food in restaurant excellent, view from our terrace was the best we have ever seen. The town of Bosa was just beautiful all the colours guide books don't describle it well. And the castle overlooking the town was amazing. Highly recommend this hotel.
The restaurant in particular was fantastic
The restaurant in the hotel was excellent.
lovely building, italian ambiance, nice restaurant breakfast rather basic - however, garden was lovely
View from large balcony 89 stairs to bedroom. Poor breakfast facilities,
Quirky hotel - liked the cupboard full of board games for visitors. No lift so glad was not on top floor. Quite a few building bits and pieces not finished off - wires hanging from ceilings, plug sockets put on at a weird angle - nothing major but sloppy finishing off.
Location, cleanliness, nature reserves nearby, nice poll, tennis courses etc. Intact nature, absence of destructive developments in vincinity. Garbage in surounding areas,. AC units that were impossible to turn off. Super sterile artificial lighting.
- location, private beach, room design, Breakfasts were terrible with very little or actually no choice. Poor quality bread, meat and cheese (only one choice of each). Italy is famous for its food and at this hotel you could not feel that at all.
The view is amazing out into the bay, pool is great. Location is also good. As it was early October there weren't many people in the Hotel, and therefore hardly any staff. The bar wasn't open in the evening, nor did the restaurant look like it opened.
It is a nice resort-type hotel. The hotel has been around for a while, but they have re-done everything last winter. Anything you see is new and clean. The beach there is not one of the white-sand types, but it is truly beautiful. The marine life there is so rich--you don't have to do anything special to see different kinds of fish and other creatures. The restaurant looked decent, but we just couldn't get a reservation there at all (we stayed the hotel three nights). This may not be a problem if you don't mind driving a bit. Alghero is not far from where the hotel is.
It was clean and it was well kept. Staff were friendly The bar war a disaster, 15km to the next resturant, they looked at us as if we mad when we asked if we could have an evening meal there on our first evening there when we found out after 2.5hrs that there were no outer resturants anywhere between Algehero and the hotel. There is nothing in the advertisment for the hotel to tell you that a car is absolutely necessary and Taxi's are min €25 each way to the nearest resturant which were open
Staff very rude
View Complained every day about the water (hotel was having a problem with their water system which went on for 5 days), all staff said was for us to run the water for 10 minutes before using. Left the hotel early. We did get some compensation for the conditions but had to argue and haggle for this, to the point where my wife burst into tears. Not impressed at all!!!!! The room was disgusting, the couch was broken, there was mould in the bathroom, the corridor to the room was unbearably hot, smelt like stagment rusty water. It took days for the hotel to fix the lock on the door. I could go on.... in short we had a miserable holiday and would be recomending to our friends never to go there.
good pool - clean with adequate number of sun loungersalso access to roof was good for sunbathing away from the masses on the beach and for getting views of alghero town rooms very small with very large hallway
Ideal location for the town centre, a nice 15min stroll noisy plumbing, and uncomfortable chairs around swimming pool
The hotel is very well situated,practically on the beach and a short walk from the town.The only staff we had dealings with were the receptionists,breakfast ladies and cleaning ladies. The receptionists were very friendly,polite and helpful. The breakfast staff were also friendly as were the cleaning staff.We were pleasantly surprised.
across the street from the beach and had a pool also to choose from If taking a taxi to airportt make reservations at least 4 hours prior to leaving. Not fault of hotel, just a lesson learned.
Allowed to check in early(10.30am)
Some staff able to understand and speak english. In mid September parking was easy as we had a (cheap) rental car 7 days. Breakfast was basic, but OK, (coffee, juice (from machine), bread (3 types), yougurt, eggs, ham, cheese, simple fruit etc No warm course or other 'fancy') A/C did not work. 'Odd' if it broke down just the day before we arrived. Water 'leaked' from shower, toilet seat not screwed to toilet(!), some bulbs not working. (more or less minor 'end of season problems'?!) Poor/insufficinet lightning for reading books in bed. Quite noisy and heavy loaded street (Via Lido) just outside hotel (appr. 6-8000 cars /24h - including motorcycles etc. 'on ther way into town')
location is the only positive thing about this hotel I would not recommend this hotel as the hotel staff were very unhelpful and unfriendly. The hotel lacked any charm or ambiance. The pool is also very small and beside the main road so it is very noisy and far from relaxing.
Helpful staff, quiet, easy access to beach.
The staff, facilities and service accommodated all our needs and requirements. The location of the hotel, although out of town was quietly located within a short walk over sand dunes to the beach. The breakfast could be in proved.
The position, situation & pool No
Good breakfast. helpful staff Rooms a little dated.
Nice hotel near the beach. Friendly serviceminded staff. Nice breakfast and nice pool area and surroundings. It was easy to hear our neighbours through the walls. Italian couple made a lot of fighting sounds and screams during the weekend. From the opposite room we heard snoring, coughing all throuh the night. We missed a cover matress, the bed was hard.
good breakfast wide choice, free parking, friendly staff ,dinner excellent. a little bit noisy.
I liked my room with balcony facing the sea. I liked its accessibility to the sea and beach. The hotel pool was excellent. I stayed in mid October and had hoped to hire a bicycle at hotel, but this was not possible, due to end of season closure.
Very friendly and helpfull staff, extremely clean hotel, very good value for money, this hotel is worth more then 3 stars to italian standards (we would give it 3+). Rooms are basic but very clean and confy with a nice balcony. No realy bad point, only points for potential improvement: breakfast was not bad but it was the very same every morning, quite poor selection of fruits; no fridge in rooms but that would be probably too much to expect from a 3 star hotel.
Every aspect was pefect.....spacious rooms, huge choice of breakfast, decor immaculate, generally quiet at night, helpful staff....
very basic room but lovely and clean wit great balcony and view of pool.Just a short walk to beach and centre of city.Also a great breakfast spread. Dinner was not available in hotel on night of arrival so had to walk, only about 4 minutes though,down street for something to eat, which was grand really.
The terrace and the view none
Location was fantastic and staff helpful. Rooms relatively clean, but beds were a little spartan (hard beds, thin pillows) The hotel was very noisy, had to sleep with earplugs due to noise carrying from other guests in their rooms and walking down the halls
Great staff, good facilities (the pool is excellent), good room. For me it was ideally located about 8 km from Alghero. We could relax out of the hussle and bussle of the town, but were in easy reach of the best bits of Sardinia. Breakfast was good, didnt eat any main meals there. Its a bit cheeky to charge for using the tennis court.
Location Food not very good
Lovely setting and very polite and helpful staff
very friendly staff, good location, near Alghero ant the airport, good breakfast i didnt like the beach
Generally your staff were excellent, especially Bartelomeo and all the receptionists. We liked the view and the cleanliness of the pool. The dining room is as impersonal as a station waiting room and we are glad we booked only bed and breakfast. The chief waiter at breakfast was grumpy and rude - such a contrast to all your other staff. - The ventilation in our bathroom did not work and as there is no window this was rather unpleasant.
The beach was at the door and very beautiful. Alghero was 10 kms away, an easy drive and plenty of parking. The set menu and the German tourist buses, absolutely necessary but they were very loud.
Informal atmosphere and closeness to beach expensive
Good food and 95% of the staff where very helpfull and pleasant. Rooms very clean Directly under flight path of nearby Alghero airport making it fairly noisy. Block bookings of groups spending a few days in the hotel on conferences did not compliment the Family holiday atmosphere
Fine hotel (some recent refurbishments) with ditto, remarkeably well- humoured, personnel-good language skills-even nl and g, and private beach. The hotel is perfectly situated vis-a-vis Alghero airport (close: 10 min drive-not 5 min..) without noticeable noise. Downtown Alghero likewise in 10 min easy reach (even a separated bike track). Fresh fruit with continental-styled breakfast, perfect made-to-order espressos/ cappuccinos, just fresh orange juice (plus white beans in tomato sauce:- ) would have topped it off. Stable (yet: paid) wifi (plus one fixed pc) in the public environment. Additionial services relatively pricy: wifi: (1) not in the room-only downstairs, (2) not free, so that recurrent burden of logging in with the usual fixed codes, but also the charge in addition to the room price: e 2,50 for 60 user mins is not necessarily a rip-off, but not sympa either. bikes: e10 for 9 hours is not a bargain, especially not if not superbly well maintained/ basic built quality. food: equally the p/q ratio didn't come across as too convincing.
all the staff was simply great! kind, effective, fast, responsive...all what you would hope to find in a hotel! Facility is a bit old and not really up to a 4 star level. Room was small, very cheaply firnished, breakfast is very ordinary, some services are not available....a typical hotel of the '80s (but not updated)
very beutiful area, nice and relaxing
Proximity of hotel to beach was excellent as was provision for sun loungers and sun umbrellas. Courtesy room on leaving was an excellent idea 1. No food available in hotel (restaurant or bar) after 9pm which meant that on the day of arrival we could not have an evening meal on the day of arrival, despite arriving just before 9pm but reception staff not pointing this out. 2. Location of room (directly above delivery lorry drop unload area) was very poor.
The hotel was on the beach and perfect for a relaxing holiday. We went just before the main season started, so it was quiet, but this was what we wanted. There was a fairly regular bus service to Alghero town which you can buy tickets for at reception. Breakfast was basic but fine. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Staff were fantastic!
Particularly liked the staff in all areas who were helpful and very pleasant. Location was good and the beach area, although a bit squashed was nevertheless an ideal launchpad into the wonderful bay which was ideal for swimming. The tennis pro, Jose was particularly nice. The lunchtime menu was a little over the top. Most people prefer snacks at lunchtime but the menu was actually pretty limited. The watersports were also a bit limited - some nice racing catamarans would have been good. The decor is probably a bit tired and comparing it to El Faro which is another 4 Star Hotel, the rating is over ambitious. Walls very thin - almost as though people were in our room and we could clearly hear our neighbour's TV when it went on at about 7.45 in the morning.
the beautiful sea view the food at the evening meal
Relax in the sun. Bathing. Walking and cycling around in the nature. Visiting Alghero frequently. Two much noice from rooms next door. After 14 days the repeating music became quite annoying.
Location on the beach
The beaches are so beautiful and perfect for children. The staff is friendly and food is great. This is our second trip here and will return yearly. I wish there was a little store or outside restaurant so we didn't have to eat at the hotel all day. It would also be nice to have beach side service, but the beach is worth any of these desires. It is a must see!
The beachside location is the selling point! We stayed for just one night, a family of 5. Check out time is early, 10am, however, it's no problem to spend the day on the beach as the staff organise a courtesy room in which to shower etc and you can leave your luggage for the day. Really friendly & helpful staff on reception. check-out time is too early, 10am!! Breakfast is good & choice varied, however, dinner menu is limited, no options for children. The beachside bar for lunch is too expensive & choice is limited. As we are a family of 5, we had to book 2 rooms which proved to be expensive, though our double room was upgraded to a sea-view, which was lovely.
very nice staff very friendly and helpful.good location and good food Wi-fi is available just in public areas and you need to pay for it.
Good location and good breakfast buffet included in the price of the room. Hot drinks for breakfast were pretty bad. They should really think of getting a new machine. If you want to use the fridge in the room, they will charge you 15 Euros/week. I understand that the fridge is part of the minibar and not for personal use, however it goes without saying that everybody uses it now and then (not a big deal) Putting this sign in the room about the rental price of the fridge does not give a good impresion.
it was clean and nice, closed to the beach
Very comfortable, breakfast excellent lots of choices. Dinner menu was very good.
Nice hotel, at a nice location in a nice city, Lack of possibilities for hanging up beach towels etc in bathroom
Nice, helpful staff, good location breakfast until 9.00 am
Staff was very friendly and helpful. A little bit plain to be a four stars hotel.
The bar and the restaurant The rooms lacked soundproofing (noise attenuation) so snoring, noise, and voices from above, beside, and outside were very annoying
the staff were friendly. the location was amazing! one minute from the beach and a lovely 20 min walk along the beach to the old town! good restaurants around aswell and all food in hotel was good. needing to wear swimming hats in pool, and pool busy so maybe they could do with a few more sunbeds. Also on arrival we had 2 twin beds the first night but the next day they were converted into one double.
The staff at the reception.In general everything was ok, and the price was according the service you get. I was at the hotel at the end of October and it was cold during the nights. I miss a better heating system, it was not working properly. I also agree with previous comments about the four stars are too much for this hotel.
Felt the hotel was very over priced considering the general condition and facilities.
excellent hotel, 20 mins pleasant walk to town centre, quiet location,fantastic staff who went out of their way to be helpful.Nice quiet pool and small attached beach. cold buffet breakfast was ok but repetative-a few hot items would have been welcome
close to airport no
Location and facilities. proximity to the beach. Breackfast was excellent. Distance from the "Old town" was just a little far.
We loved the sea and beach being so close to the Hotel and the view from our lovely room was beautiful and so relaxing. Also we loved the walk into Alghero and all the bars and restaurants. No we loved it all.
Rooms basic but with great sea views, good location, 15 minute walk to old town along coast Quite expensive, not great value for money, however hotels in Alghero are generally on the pricey side. Beach very small and 2km walk to sandy beach
Very accomodating and nice staff, exellent sea view, lovely pool area and situated in a quiet part just outside the Alghero old town.
cleanliness,friendliness of staff,quality of food,excellent views, very quiet in the evenings ,no entertainment etc.
This is great hotel with it's own private beach. The pool is large, deep and beautiful. Breakfast was served in an outside marquee which was a real highlight of our stay. It is a good 10 - 15 minute walk into town but well worth it. There are great restaurants along the ocean front. Not quite up to the standard we expected for what we paid but it was peak time.
the proximity to the beach was fantastic, the pool was great also, the room kept very clean the room was a little small for a twin room and the air conditioning needs upgrade
The staff were courteous. The room was and the hotel were very clean. It was across the beach and a 15 minute walk to the city center so it was an ideal location. There was a pool, a restaurant, and a bar in the hotel. AC cost an extra 6 Euro per day. The checkout was very early at 10 am and the staff refused to extend that even by one hour. The beach across the hotel is not the nicest and cleanest of the beaches in the area. The breakfast is basic and mainly includes pastries, cereal, and boiled eggs and could use more variety.
The hotel is nicely situated near the beach just upside the beach street. I think the buffet breakfast was a bit too "thin" - I would reccomend a bit more continental style.
All staff always helpful and friendly. No difficulty finding sunbeds. Water in pool not too cold. Air-con in bedroom good. Some elements of breakfast : Boiled eggs were underboiled, whites of them not cooked enough. The option of totally hard-boiled eggs as well would have been nice. No British sausages available, just frankfurter types. Would have liked to have a refrigerator in bedroom.
Staff were pleasant and friendly. Hotel was clean. There was no fridge in the room or bath in the en-suite. Mosquitoes were a significant problem.
The location was good a lack of any english language tv at all in the room, though it was satellite tv. The entire area had a disagreeable aroma. The prices of drinks and coffees are rather expensive.
I liked the swimming pool area. We had a room with a sea view and the view was excellent. Location excellent and a lovely walk into the old town. The breakfast was very basic and the dining not very enticing. Would recommend this hotel with some reservations.
Most of all I liked the location of the hotel which was directly opposite the beach and just 15 minutes walk to the old town. Suggest the hotel has a shelf as a mini library so that guests may leave or borrow books free of charge.
it"s not 4 star hotel/
Nicely situated, serviceminded staff, excellent swimming pool, clean rooms Rooms a bit too small, only one chair for sitting
Room and cleaning staff, breakfast, distance to attractions Pool not open, front-desk man rather rude
The attitude of the staff, particularly the reception desk. Super location. I have no reason to fault the San Marco hotel and have no difficulty in recommending it. Small complaint. When leaving I booked a taxi thorugh the reception. The (female) taxi driver charged €23 to the airport which I thought was very expensive. The hotel should not use this taxi service again.
The excellent location-just across road from lovely beach and 10 minutes walk into old town or 10 minutes the other way to tree lined beach. The room looked out on unattractive residential area. There was an unpleasant odour from the bathroom consistently.
Room was very nicely decorated and it was very happy feelings to be in it. The break fast was really really crap , only one type of cereal and one type of fruit, peprony, cheese and tomato for the breakfast, no english tea was available. Staff for the breakfast area was not frindly and very poor english. There is not enough Sun beds around the pool area, Air conditioning in the room was not very good , i had to keep the window open which was more cooler than aircon, my flight was very late in the evening and i had to leave my room at 12 as hotel staff told me that they were fully booked and i have to be puncual. But my wife and i we spend all time in the waiting room and did not see not even one person checked in, not only us there was one another couple from Ireland was in same situation.
I liked the whole ambience of the hotel, the staff were very attentive and friendly, the rooms were very comfortable, and I thought the location of the hotel was great as it was right on the beachfront and a nice comfortable walk away from the main shopping and eating area of Alghero. We were upgraded from a Studio to a 1-Bedroom apartment at no extra charge which was a nice bonus. I had no negatives that I can think of about the Hotel.
mini refrigerator in the room. tv set in the room is very small, with limited programming choices. sat tv should be a must for this class of hotel. also a functional internet corner should be provided.
Nice room - cleanliness Menucard - not a gourmet-restaurant
location facing the beach it is really handy also the air-conditioning was good. It was called a two roomed apt but there was no door to seperate the rooms. My daughter was expected to sleep on a couch with springs sticking out. after much complaining they gave us a single bed.which was fine. we got a tiny balcony too small for two people
Proximity to the beach, also within walking distance of old town. Very clean. Rooms, incl bathroom are small with no tea/coffee making facilities. Restaurant was closed.
The people at the front desk were very friendly and helpsome. The breakfast was not much but satisfactury. Otherwise the hotel was rather dull since it closed down for the season the day we left. This may have been the reason. Overall - the hotel was a OK experience. The bugs/mosquitos and the bed. The bed had only thin sheets as cover and we Scandinavians usually do not like this arrangement very much.But for a week it wasOK.
