This is a beautifully situated hotel, right on the sea with view on a large bay and the 'skyline' of Alghero in the far distance. The hotel is sparklingly clean. My room had regular size by US standards, large by European. Free internet in room, lobby and terrace! There is a flatscreen TV in the room with satellite reception (I think; I just switched it on once and flipped through the channels but then never used it). There is a pool which looks very nice but it was too cool (for me) to swim, in early May. The hotel rents various boats, sail and pedalo which I have not tried (yet).
We have full board and the food is excellent! All meals are served buffet-style, with a rich assortment of great antipasti (lots of seafood but also other stuff). I barely touch the main course after that; it is very good, too, but I just like the variety of the antipasti. Wine (a decent local red) and mineral water is included with lunch and dinner.
The staff is unobtrusive and friendly.
I read the comment about the horrible music. No idea what happened there. It must have come from the hotel itself since there is nothing for a mile or two in the surroundings, except two houses a few hundred feet away that look residential (and empty; maybe vacation homes?) and a beach bar, mabye 500 yards away. There was absolutely no music outside the bar area, and that was either some guest playing the grand piano there, or some 'smooth jazz' type bar music. I doubt that either of these could be heard in any of the rooms.
I can't comment on the spa since I did not use it, nor on the value since someone pre-paid the bill for me and I never saw the bill (business trip).
All in all, a great place!
