Lovely staff and the cleanest rooms

Posted Aug 30, 2014
I don't usually write reviews but I have felt compelled to do so regarding this hotel. The staff couldn't have been more helpful if they tried and the room was completely spotless everyday. I loved the location and the little private beach. A lovely restaurant is just a short walk away overlooking the sea. And it's about a 10-15 minute walk into the old town with everything you would want and need for the evening. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Really enjoyed our stay and holiday here and I would go back

A Great simple hotel right by the beach

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Quiet location
Cons: Medium hard beds
Location: This hotel is at the very end of the town, there isn't anything after it, but there is a little bar and restaurant just up the hill
This hotel is a perfect place if you are looking for piece and quiet away from the hussle of the town, the walk is about a mile and half into the centre and is a nice stroll along the coast. Great facilities, great pool. We have a fantastic 360degree view from our room of the sea and our room had been renovated. The only thing I didn't like is that the bed was too hard for us and I had to use the duvet underneath me to get a good nights sleep. The staff are very friendly, good great and the little private beach is cute although not sandy and the sea is great to get it as long as you don't mind rocks under your feet.

pleasant hotel but not really 4 stars, more like 3. very small rooms, old fashioned decor. Meals are served at a very limited time only and dinner is served very late. The beach is tinny and across the street. Overall the ratio of expense to what you get for it is not really attractive to an experienced traveler

Lovely setting especially the private beach

Posted Jul 25, 2014
Pros: Pool beach breakfast
Cons: Willingness to correct problems
Location: Alghero old town picturesque plenty of opportunities to do water sports or hire a boat for the day. Vineyards close by
Lovely hotel superb views and not far to the old town and restaurants. When we arrived we had a lovely welcome, room spotless, pool and beach great. Very relaxing to eat breakfast outside After a couple of days our bathroom wasn't cleaned properly and our bedspreads were taken away for some reason. The floor ended up getting very dusty too! Reception staff very reluctant to put matters right. Apart from these hiccups (which were annoying) it was a lovely stay

Hotel OK, but our 'superior' room was tiny

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Cons: Sound proofing in rooms, quality of food.
Hotel OK but not really 4 star in terms of quality. Our 'superior' room did have a sea view as promised, but was tiny. Generally the hotel was noisy - not because people staying there were ill-behaved, but because sound carried. We had one lunch there, which was poor for the amount of money it cost. Hotel staff polite and helpful

Lovely, quiet and clean hotel.

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Very unhappy that Expedia booked our flights to Olbia airport that is about 150k away when Alghero airport is on the doorstep. The cost of a taxi transfer is approximately £140 either way that we weren't notified of prior to our booking only to contact the hotel to arrange tranfers!

Lovely hotel, excellent service

Posted Oct 23, 2013
Pros: location; quiet street and sea directly over road. Staff - service all round was excellent.
Cons: providing tea and coffee - really frustrating to have kettle and not be able to have coffee in bed!
Location: Small private beach across road (quite sea-weedy). can walk to town - 15 mins tho there are hills.
Hotel was lovely, quiet area but near enough to walk to town (15 mins). the staff were wonderful, always cheerful and willing to help. rooms were comfortable and our balcony (superior room) was fantastic - we could have stayed there the whole time! Only issue we had was that tea and coffee facilities evidently means a kettle and not the tea and coffee! i have never come across this before and the amount of bad feeling its generating compared to the small cost (to the hotel company) of providing a couple of sachets each day - cost cutting gone mad! so take tea & coffee with you! Otherwise we had a great time.
