“Classy hotel in Alghero”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

I recently stayed in this hotel for 6 nights and had an excellent experience. My room had a garden view, very pleasant and quiet, I slept perfectly well. The acoustic isolation from neighbouring rooms is also excellent. Nice swimming pool; lovely view onto the sea and lovely surroundings; the hotel is located along the walk by the sea that leads downtown in 15 minutes' walking and there are many bars and restaurants along this fascinating walk that borders the sea.

Room Tip: Rooms with a garden view are very quiet.

Just returned from a week in Alghero for the first time. We booked a family room with sea view for two adults and our 11 yr old son. The room we were allocated on arrival, although lovely, had a single bed very close to our double. We asked if there were any other room options available and the receptionists gave us three choices. One was room 101 which was available next morning, also a sea view with a separate bedroom for our son....perfect.....thank you.

The pool area was superb with lots of beds and full sun all day. The hotel is an easy 10 min stroll from the town centre which made it nice and quiet.

Breakfast was plentiful with every option one would expect in a big dining room with excellent omlettes made while you wait. Lunch and dinner were on a par with restaurants in town price wise so sometimes easier to eat in.

Our only constructive criticism was that although the staff were superbly efficient and very accommodating, they could all learn from Marco who runs the pool bar and was always smiling, very friendly and a great asset to the hotel. He even made the effort to say hello to us when we were out in town and he was with his family, he was great with kids around the hotel. The ladies who cleaned our room were also lovely and smiley. Proof were it needed that it's not always what you do but the way that you do it.

We would definitely revisit the Carlos V.

I have just got back from staying at this hotel for 3 nights. My stay at the hotel was very pleasant, the rooms are very clean, comfortable and spacious. The swimming pool is a nice size and the surrounding area is nice and clean and very relaxing. The stand out point about this hotel for me was the food, it was absolutely amazing and the staff are very polite and friendly. The hotel is also in a nice location, with beautiful scenery and is close to a lot of restaurants and bars. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Alghero.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 5 days recently and found it to be lovely. The staff were polite and did everything to accommodate us. There is a guy called Marcos (I think that's his name) in the bar area who was one of the nicest hotel staff I've met. He's a big beast of a man to look at but friendly as a puppy dog, always smiling and saying hello.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the old part of the city and there are some lovely restaurants there. On busy evenings (Thurs, Fri and Sat) and in particular at peak times it is best to ask the hotel to reserve a table at the better restaurants.

The hotel has a nice pool and the food was good. It deserves its 5 stars.

The only reason I haven't given it an 'Excellent' rating is because when compared to some of the more grander 5 star hotels in London and Dubai I don't think Carlos V is there.

BTW, the swimming pool area is eerily quiet, even when there are 30 or 40 people. My wife and I loved it!

Having taken my first package holiday in 1963 staying in many....many hotels since... both abroad and the UK for both pleasure and business I read reviews but don't normally write one.

My wife and I have been staying at the Carlos V every year since 2007 normally for 2 weeks but this year having persuaded my daughter husband and grandson to come we stayed for only 10 nights at the beginning of July..... What a 'Fantastic' 10 nights.

As per usual the rooms were excellent and kept spotlessly clean by the hard working chambermaids and it didn't matter how many times you passed them they all had a smile and a
buongiorno.

Breakfast choice as usual was extensive and what a way to start your day than having a very 'pretty chef' with a lovely smile to cook your fried eggs or an omelette.

We ate lunch and dinner every day in the restaurant and every meal was excellent.In fact my son-in-law a 'typical Brit' maintained his beef burger and chips at lunch was as good as any he could get at home!!!! Thank goodness the grandson loves pasta.

As for service it was once again 'Exceptional' and all performed with a smile from all in the restaurant, bar and reception...many thanks to you all especially the 'golden oldies' Alexandro, Daniella, Rita, Marco and Andreas and the 'young uns' Christina and Valentina.

Keep up the good work and all being well hope to see you all again next year but in the meantime 'Health and Happiness' to you all.

I highly recommend staying at Carlos V hotel! We visited for a week with four children ages 11-17 and we all had a great time! I would recommend this hotel for families or couples. Everything was within walking distance and the sea views were breathtaking! The hotel grounds were impeccable and the staff was very friendly and helpful! Be sure to say "ciao" to Marco at the outside bar! The ping pong table chess boards were a big hit with our kids! We look forward to returning in the future!

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are worth the extra $!

Stayed recently on our Honeymoon and a great position with views and a nice 10 minute walk down the promenade to all the amenities of the old town.
Decent sized room, huge balcony & great view, lovely pool, good gym, breakfast ok but repetitive.
The things we found odd for a 5 star hotel, having to pay for a special pillow, paying if you wanted tea & coffee yet cold soft drinks from the minibar are free! We ate lunch once and it was the worst meal we had all week, in a town where the food was amazing.There was some kind of disco coming from a beach bar on 3 of our 6 nights with music until 6am. The staff bar 1 lovely barman called Andreas & the cleaners practically ignore you. I've never stayed in a hotel where reception staff put their heads down to avoid eye contact! This for me was where the true 5 star experience comes from.

We are glad that you enjoyed our hotel and we are sorry that you did not appreciate our reception staff.
As you may have read from other comments and our responses, not every guest think like you but it is a personal impression, our staff is well trained and good working sometime they are mantaining the distances because not everyone appreciate a too warm and formal relation,
I think is a professional way to work, that is our policy.
Hopefully, however, you will want to choose us again during your next trip to our beautiful Alghero, you will be welcome!
Best regards
