This hotel is a small family run hotel close to the beach in Alghero, Sardinia. It was a very quiet hotel, there is no entertainment, no childrens club and no noisey music. Which we loved. The staff are all so friendly and pleasent. My son did complain that there was no WiFi, but for me a week away from computers was bliss.I have read on TA that people complained about the food, for me the food was very good, it was an A la carte menu selected at breakfast, the food was pleasent and well presented, for my wife and son who are both vegetarian, the choice was not too good. The main course was Omlette every night. Breakfast time is continental style but was okay.
People need to understand they are not staying in the Ritz. Stop complaining about trivia.
We never had a problem getting a sun lounger around the pool and it was always quiet
The hotel is a Thomson hotel and it must be one of the smallest they use. The hotel choice in Sardinia is not massive.
The beach by the hotel was clean and the sea was beautiful, the beach is not groomed like they are in Spain. Which did mean there were lots of sea grass washed up on the sand. The snorkelling was good if you swam out to the rocks of the beach. The sea is very safe to swim in.
In the evening we went into the old town of Alghero, this is well worth a visit and not to be missed.
We did two trips one to Neptunes cave by boat, the caves were amazing. and the other was a day trip to the National Park of Asinara. This was well worth the money and we were so glad we did this. We did this excursion as a last minute outing as our thomson trip was cancelled due to lack of people.
We also did the Red Bus tour around Alghero, this was interesting as you are given headsets to listen to the commentary as they drive you around.
All I can say is we loved Sardinia and cannot understand why it not more popular with us Brits. Maybe the Italians like it that way.
Would we go back? Maybe. We would defiantely go back if there were flights from our local airport rather than drive all the way to Gatwick. For a two hour flight.
