Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

El Faro is in a wonderful location, looking over a secluded bay. It has its own patch of coast that is completely private. Access to the sea is by ladders and very easy even for those less confident about sea swimming. The water is crystal clear and lovely to swim in. The hotel itself is very clean and comfortable and the staff are fantastic - very kind and helpful. Breakfast and lunch were excellent, and for the most part dinner was very good as well. Perhaps, the restaurant is a bit expensive for what you get, but the setting is so beautiful it doesn't really matter. It's important to know that the hotel is about 20 minutes from Alghero and a taxi is 30 euros, so having your own car is probably a good idea if you want to eat away from the hotel. All in all, a wonderful place and they also take Covid precautions very seriously.

My husband I just just returned from visiting beautiful Sardinia. The best part of our visit was the three nights we spent at El Faro Resort. Check in was quick and friendly with the front desk employee walking us personally to our room and showing us in. We had a sea view room and the view was stunning. You are so close to the ocean you can hear the water lapping at the shore when you leave the door open (it has a screen). The room and the entire hotel were spotless! We enjoyed the breakfast everyday. It is buffet style but they will bring you coffee and teas to the table. There were eggs, bacon and sausage everyday as well as a large selection of breads, meats, yogurt, cereals, pastries and juices. Our favorite part was definitely the afternoon we spent by the beautiful pool. You can lie by the pool and have an ocean view at the same time. There is a pool bar that was never crowded and had great cocktails. We ate lunch poolside too and it was quite good! We never tried dinner there. It is about a 15 min drive from Alghero and we never had any trouble finding a free space for our rental car. It is also very close to Neptune's Grotto and Mugoni Beach, both of which we enjoyed visiting. The resort never felt overcrowded and the whole resort was so quiet and peaceful. We visited in early June so perhaps it gets busier. Overall our visit was amazing and I hope to go back one day. The rest of the week we spent and a more expensive resort in the Chia area of Sardinia and while it was nice - El Faro was perfection!

We have just finished a 4 night stay at this amazing hotel and we did not want to leave! All staff are extremely nice and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a deluxe room which had a terrace with 180 degree views of the gorgeous bay. There was barely anyone staying at the hotel and on one day we had the pool to ourselves. The beach area does not have sand, but has rocks with ladders which you use to get into the water. The water is unbelievably clear it is just beautiful. Great selection on the menu for breakfast and lunch, lunch was a reasonable price too. We hired a car from the airport which is definitely needed as the hotel is quite out the way. We will definitely be staying again if we return to Sardinia!

Unfortunately, as the titles says, this is an over priced mid-range hotel. The best part is the view and the location by the sea. Also, the pool is nice and the staff are very professional.

However, there is no value for money. When comparing it to many upscale or even mid-range hotels, this one doesn’t deliver on the very basic things any good hotel should offer.

Our superior sea view room was very small and very simply decorated. Although it had been renovated (I can’t believe they have rooms that are not renovated), the work has been sloppy.

There was a good amount of storage space, which was positive.

What I disliked were simple things that are very easy, and SHOULD be covered in a self-proclaimed luxury resort. The drinking “glasses” in the room were plastic. The cheapest plastic cups you can get. There were just two complimentary water bottles per stay. Usually most hotels give you new water every day. There was no iron in the room and the hair dryer was either very, very old or the worst on the market as it had extremely weak power.

The toiletries were of bad quality and there was no amenity set, no shower caps, basically nothing. The hotel directory also didn’t mention that they’d bring you those if you ask.

Although this is a spa hotel, there were no slippers nor bath robes. We visit several spa hotels a year and they always offer slippers and bath robes. We did get slippers when we asked for those but we’re told that bath robes are for “the better rooms”.

The breakfast was quite basic and the food they offer is low quality. There’s also very little traditional local foods. The coffee is good, though. The staff made nice cappuccinos.

The whole look and feel of the hotel is somehow very blank and needs a designer to bring out more Mediterranean vibes (or any vibes, for that matter). It’s just too simple and cheap.

The furniture on balconies and terraces are metal and don’t have any cushions which makes them very uncomfortable.

The outdoor areas are dirty, the garden is not well maintained and the outdoor gym is very dirty and should be cleaned.

All in all, this hotel is certainly not worth the money. Very underwhelming and the management should visit some actual good hotels to get inspiration on how to run a n upscale hotel because this one is a basic hotel with a nice view.

we have just returned from a fantastic holiday.
we were greeted at the reception by very friendly and smiling people.
the large room and also the view of the bay that will leave you breathless.
breakfast served on the plate, fast and has as much choice as in the hotels that present the classic buffet.
very fast lunch service and selection of fresh grilled fish.
the dinner with great surprise changes the menu every day so you never get bored, the portions are right and well cared for, in the other hotels around I don't think they can compete, since we visited the restaurant near ours and it was not for nothing good.
thanks Hotel el faro

The entertainment team here are the most fun here. They are very friendly and energetic! They always pull a crowd and make people laugh. They have something for everyone. Triplex has especially been great to see around, he makes you feel comfortable to participate in the group activities.

The building itself is an architectural wonder. It says comfort and style.
The room was very nice and large with a good bathroom. We had a balcony with a very nice view.
The staff were extremely helpful and spoke excellent English.

The hotel is close to many beaches and is beside one of the large historic round towers found on the coast of Sardinia. This tower was used as a museum of the writer of “the little prince“ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I was really tickled to find this unexpected museum adjacent to the hotel.

The restaurant’s food is not the usual Italian fare with pasta and red sauce, but delicious traditional Sardinian dishes The free breakfast was sumptuous.

I’d be happy to go back again , and recommend it.

The hotel has a fantastic location. We had a superior room with a balcony facing the sea. For those of us who like snorkeling, the beach is perfect. All open spaces are very nice and fruit cheese and dinner are enjoyed with a view of the sea. The restaurant is good, but maybe not world class.

My husband and I spent a week here celebrating a special birthday. What a treat it was to stay at the El Faro Hotel. From the spectacular views, food and service. My only complaint is that they do not offer free EV charging to their guests. (Most luxury hotels do not charge their guests 50€ per charge!) I would highly recommend this hotel.

We get a taxi from the airport to El Faro Hotel - the hotel has been able to sort it out for us and we pay the driver directly €50. There is a public bus from the nearby village of Maristella which goes to Alghero town.
