“Fantastic hotel, wonderful staff, ideal location.”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

I have just returned home from a one week stay in Hotel Florida, Alghero. I stayed here with my best friend. This is simply a fantastic hotel, a solid 3 star. Rooms are spotless, we requested a sea view as it was our first time in Sardinia. We walked into the room and opened the blinds and we had the most perfect sea view. The breakfast is delicious with a fantastic variety of things, cereals, fruits, breads, bacon/eggs, juices/water, delicious cakes/ fresh croissants, tea/coffee.

The location of the hotel is perfect, walk-able distance to the old town of Alghero. Lido beach is across the road from the hotel. It's a lovely, clean beach with beautiful views, perfect for a swim. The hotel pool is also perfect but we chose to swim in the sea across the road daily due to how close it was to the hotel. A local man told me he swims there daily with his child and that the water is perfect. We booked an excursion out to Spiaggia Della Pelosa in Stintino. It was the most beautiful beach I have even seen in my life, pure paradise, white sands with crystal clear water. The hotel kindly booked this trip for us and it's only an hour away from Alghero, I would highly recommend booking this trip. The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful, really friendly and genuinely interested in talking to us and making our stay enjoyable. The rooms were cleaned daily, beds made, fresh towels and the house keeping staff don't normally do this until about 11 30am/12pm which I feel is a very decent time for guests.

I lost my credit card on the morning of check out and I would like to thank the lady at reception for her kindness, she even offered to help me look for it in the room. I found it of course in my suitcase when I returned home, typical! ;) I will definitely be recommending this hotel to family and friends and hope to return next year. I completely fell in love with the place and the people. Alghero is magical. I would like to thank all the hotel staff at Hotel Florida for making our holiday a relaxing and enjoyable one, hope to see you all soon! :)

I think it is expensive for what you get. Everything is just a little bit dated and old. The pool is not as nice as the photos.

The staff are really friendly, and very helpful.

Its not a bad hotel at all. location is very good, and overall its nice. clean - just not really amazing. I expected a little bit more.

our room overlooked the beach, but also the main road, so noisy at times.

Hotel is directly opposite the beach, within 10 minutes of large supermarket and 15 minutes walk of old town. A bus runs past the hotel to the old town. Opposite the hotel are three small pavement bars, but the hotel has its own bar.
Staff at reception were very friendly, helpful and spoke English; the same can be said of the restaurant staff.
We had a large room with a good-sized balcony that had two chairs and a little table. Our room faced to East but many have sea views. There was no wi-fi in the room, but there was free wi-fi in the hotel lobby. There was a medium size flat screen tv and air-conditioning. The room had two single beds, very large double wardrobe, two chairs, suitcase stand, two bedside tables, two chest of drawers, table/desk. It had tiled floor to room and bathroom, which had a shower but no bath, but it did have bidet. Both room and bathroom were kept spotlessly clean by cleaning staff.
Breakfast was buffet style with a choice of cereals, hot food or cold meats and cheese. The selection did not vary daily. There was more variety in the evening meal which was served by the waiting staff.
The lobby was quite large with chairs and a couple of sofas. There was an undercover outside area for snacks and drinking. There were two pools: a medium size one for adults and a small splash pool for young children.
Probably best suited to older couples travelling without children; I'd go back there again.

I am currently staying at Floridacasavacanze in Alghero, Sardinia. The apartment is clean and comfortable, not luxurious but adequate for our requirements. Alghero is a fantastic place to visit: vibrant, interesting; the old town is steeped in history and so much to do in the local area. The hotel reception staff have been fantastic as my travelling companions who had booked another apartment had to change plans/dates at the last minute, due to unfortunate family circumstances. Florida hotel and apartments were able to accommodate the changes and very kindly waived any additional fees. This was very generous at such short notice. If you want to explore this amazing part of the world, I would recommend this accommodation unreservedly. The pool is beautiful, all staff have been excellent, speak good English and make you feel very welcome. I have travelled extensively and find this is a really unique place to visit. Totally recommend it. Enjoy yourselves!!

Room Tip: Do yourself a favour and try this accommodation at Hotel Florida or Floridacasavacanze apartments...

Stayed at the Hotel Florida for a week from 21st Sept. It was our first time in Alghero and our expectations were surpassed in almost every respect. Firstly, the weather: 28c and blue skies every day. The hotel was great value and spotless with a comfortable room, nice pool with loads of sunbeds, good breakfast and friendly and helpful staff. People have said it's a little dated but this misses the point - it's very homely so if you're looking for room service, ice machines and business facilities then go somewhere else! The location was fantastic just across the road from a sandy beach and a promenade bar called Bar Maracaibo that had a great vibe with sofas, cool music, great cocktails and fantastic views of the sunsets. The Old Town was a 20 minute stroll past the marina and a hidden gem, think Dubrovnik without the cruise ships or a more relaxed Sorrento. It was great to explore the ramparts and back streets and discover some nice restaurants. Best for pizza was Casablanca and we liked Mirador for fish. We had a car and visited Bosa and Sassari, again good to explore. The beaches in Alghero were nice but the best we found was Mugoni, around 15 mins away beyond Fertilia, fringed by pine tress and in a bay with beautifully clear water. We had a great time and only had one small complaint that 10euros per day in the hotel car park was a lilttle steep but there was free parking around. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Sea views at the front are great but those at the back are quiter

Just back from a fantastic holiday in Alghlero and stayed at this hotel. We had a fabulous time. Yes the hotel is a bit dated decor wise but more than makes up for this with service. Rooms cleaned and towels changed daily. Breakfast was good - a little repetitive but fresh and the coffee was great. The pool area is spotless and very relaxing. Plenty of sun chairs for everyone. You can hire a beach towel for 3 euro but you are charged 3 euro every time you want to change it. The location is great-straight across the road from the beach. Sunbeds and umbrellas on beach range from €8-€12 euro so you could sunbathe by the pool and go for a swim in the sea no problem if you didn't want to pay for sunbeds.. There is a cocktail bar opposite which is a great spot-especially to watch the evening sun go down. Spectacular sunsets! All restaurants were great but La Romani in the Old Town was extra special. The Suckling Pig and Risotto were delicious. 15 minute walk to Old Town but you could hire a bike and go a little bit further on for great views and scenery. Average glass of wine and bottle beer 3 euro each. Most restaurants do Vino del Casa for 5 euro half litre. I've seen great reviews for OK Pizza but it is very difficult to find and yes the Pizzas were good but not worth the effort of finding it. 30 minute walk from hotel and all restaurants serve great Pizzas. Buses to Airport are 1.50 if you pay on the bus or 1 euro if you purchase ticket at a Tobacco shop. They are hourly on the half hour. Would highly recommend holiday here.
