Stayed for 5 nights and today is our last day..... We landed very early in the morning and despite our room not being ready they let us use the courtesy room to change and relaxed by the pool until it was ready( a couple of hours later ). The view from the room was stunnning and it was really clean....

This hotel is 14 km from Alghero but the location on a headland is superb. Parking is in a free public car park next to the hotel. We stayed for two nights (in Sep.) and received a superior room (166) on the first floor (€ 184 / night), with a good sized balcony with a great view, and away from...

The location is blissful and our 'superior room' was quite simple, but had a balcony with spectacular views over the sea. The lack of beach, entertainment and isolation makes it unsuitable for children so it's wonderfully peaceful and very romantic. The sunloungers are perched along the rocks in charming bunches or 2 or 4, so you get some privacy, and...

After looking around many hotels in Alghero at Tripadvisor, we booked this hotel for 5 days 4 nights about a month ago and my husband (he is Itlaian) wrote to them (via booking.com) that this stay was for my 50th birthday and would expect the hotel to do something special (we had been offered phenomenal arrangements including BD cake and...

The three good things on the dinner menu have to be ordered 24 hr in advance. Ok so I did that ordered the roasted pig and what I got...

Came to relax after a particularly stressful summer and felt so welcomed and cared for! Not sure if the staff picked up on my needs, but from the wonderfully warm and helpful team at reception to the caring restaurant and bar staff (I have difficult dietary requirements and everyone was attentive and responded positively and graciously in trying to cater...

I spent two weeks at this hotel recently and was amazed by the service and property. The GM, Patrizia Sechi is a gem. I fell ill during my stay and she not only took me to the hospital and looked after my family while I was away but also had other staff members go to the pharmacy for me...truly a...

I have to say that for the first time in my life I am glad to be on the plane home. Except for a couple of staff (Elisa and Anna plus all the house keeping) I found them rude, unhelpful and couldn't care one jot for the guests. I didn't see a manager. The rooms are dated with limited storage...

The hotel is located on a rocky promontory with great views over the bay towards Capo Caccia. Very quiet, you can hear only the sea waves. The beach is rocky (there are various platforms with shaded areas on which the beach chairs are put) but nice for snorkelling. I guess it can get very busy in full season. We have...
