We have been visiting Alghero for several years but this is the first time we have stayed at Carlos V and we are so glad that we did.
The room was excellent, with a huge balcony overlooking the sea. We were very pleased with the standard of the room and with all the facilities. We even got tea & coffee making facitities (an extra £10 for the week but definitely well worth it for a tea lover). The only slight problem was with the air conditioning - it was very difficult to tell if it was actually working. We informed reception that we thought it was faulty so they used their computer to check the room temperature and said it was 15 degrees - this seemed to confirm to them that it must be working so nothing more was done about it. It was never too hot in the room, though some nights were a little uncomfortable and we were always a little suspicious as to whether the air con was actually on.
The service was very good - all of the staff were very friendly and polite and most of them spoke very good English. We arrived earlier than the official check in time, however this was not a problem at all - the room was ready and we were promptly attended to.
The breakfast was excellent - huge choice and all very good quality.
The bar & pool area were very good and well maintained.
We did not have any evening meals at the hotel (the restaurant always seemed rather quiet) but this was simply because Alghero boasts so many restaurants that we were always drawn to the town for dinner.
The town is a little walk away (10 minutes) but we knew this before we booked and we enjoyed the stroll in and out of town.
The vast majority of the hotel guests were English - we were very surprised by this as in our six trips to Alghero we have never encountered many English people at all!
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone and we will be returning!
