Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2009

Myself and my wife spent a weekend at the Light Blue Hotel and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The hotel and grounds are kept clean and tidy with the rooms being cleaned daily.
The reason I would not stay for a week is the breakfast is very basic, the location from the airport and Alghero.
It will cost you 15 euro either in a taxi or the shuttle service the hotel provides. As the hotel is situated under the take-off path for planes you will have a one going over every other hour on average during the day.
Getting back and forth from Alghero by the bus service will cost you 5 euro each, this covers you for the day, or a taxi will vary from 20-25 euro.
The only negative point I have about our stay was the lack of tennis equipment for hire, other than that we had a lovely stay.

We stayed the the Hotel Light Blue for a week and found the staff to be very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was simple but very clean and had all the ammenities we needed. We did not have a car which was not ideal as we were at the mercy of the buses, so hiring a car is highly recommended although taxis are widely available. The pool and outside area was very relaxing and we enjoyed playing tennis. Breakfast was of the basic variety and drinks could be brought from the bar in the lobby.

The hotel is clean and friendly. It is situated approx 4 minutes by car from the airport. Due to the location of the hotel, a car is essential, there are no restaurants/bars or anything
in reasonable walking distance, nor are there pavements. The hotel however is on a bus route.
The continental breakfast was very basic, not much choice and disappointing. There was a sign on the door in our room stating that no eating or drinking was allowed in the room, this I found quite off putting, as it's relaxing to have a glass of wine in your room. The swimming pool is ok, but was shut each day between 1.30 and 3.30pm, don't know why.
We stayed here for 7 nights, I would only use this hotel as a stop over.

This was our fourth visit to this hotel and it's the ideal location for short breaks as it's very close to the airport. The hotel is spotless and the owner takes pride in her presentation of her hotel. Iride is quite a charactor an makes you very welcome as does her lovely dog 'Argos'. He only adds to the atmospher of the place he is very friendly and not scarry as previously stated by other guests. We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to see lovely Sardinia however a car is a must. Tony and I will be going back again very soon hopefully well done Iride and thank you for some lovely meals and times spent together.

The stay was OK until the last day when we went back to pick up our bags. We thought we could take a swim in the pool before we left so we did. Then the lady came running and screamed to us "get out of the pool!" She was very angry and wanted us to pay for taking a swim!

This is a small 13 room spotlessly clean hotel set in a large garden with tennis courts and a good sized pool.
Proximity to the airport was a concern but with only a few flights per day and none after 11pm we should not have worried. The advantage of being close to the airport is a very short drive in the dark if you use Ryanair from EMA.
A car is essential not just for a stay at Light Blue but if you really want to see Sardinia it is the best way to see the sights. There are lovely coastal villages and beaches, and a drive inland reveals spectacular scenery.
On arrival you are confronted with an electric gate but a toot of the horn soon gains entry, you then have your own remote control for the duration of your stay.
The room we stayed in was comfortable with full en suite facilities. Air conditioning was available at an extra cost if you need it.
Iride, the owner, is a delightful host and speaks better English than she will admit to.
She made us most welcome and was very helpful.
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and the availability of an evening meal was a bit confusing. I suspect Iride would provide a meal any time if asked in advance. As it was she told us she would be preparing a fish dinner on one evening if we would like to book a place in advance at the cost of €30 per head. We booked 2 places and had the most superb meal and excellent value. Iride was only too happy to tell us what the various types of fish were and how she had prepared them. Don’t miss dinner at the Light Blue.
Argos the Doberman dog looks intimidating but is really a big softy – watch out for his escape bids as you return through the electric gate at night!
The Light Blue is ideal for a quiet relaxing holiday and is far enough away from the bars and clubs of Alghero. We loved it.
