Hotel Punta Negra
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Fertilia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2011

We had a great week and had a beautiful sea view from our room with the bonus of privacy due to the design of the balcony which made for a wonderful setting to enjoy a chilled glass of Vermentino in the evening as the sun went down! The infinity pool has great views and as the hotel was quiet during our stay we often had it to ourselves providing a great way to cool off after a day wandering through the old town or sightseeing. The food was varied and of a very good standard during our stay. Our room was of a good standard and was kept very clean and the hotel grounds were well maintained. Given that nearly all guests were Italian the staff spoke good English and we found them to be always very helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The hotel operates a card system which required you to add credit at reception for the bar rather than charging to your room, which was a bit odd but for those visiting from London it was a bit like an oyster card for drinks!

Yes the hotel is a bit outside the centre of Alghero but we found this was not a problem as we were happy to use the local bus service from nearby Fertilia which took about 20 minutes to get to the Old Town, although be advised that the timetable was rarely adhered to. The walk to the bus stop is only about 10 minutes but ask the way to avoid the main road outside the hotel.

All in all this hotel provided us with a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

We only stayed for one night. We didn't book a sea view as it was only one night but if you were staying longer make sure you do! The view is lovely on one side .... but really not very nice as you look back to the town on the other. What makes this hotel are the pools and the breakfast was the best we had in two weeks. A couple of things i found strange.... there was a sign on the fridge in the room saying that "due to health reasons" you could not leave food or your own drinks in the minibar and if you did they would confiscate them and you would have to demand them back (what......?? you don't treat guests like that! and the health reasons is an excuse for saying they only want you to use their expensive drinks)! Also to buy a drink or have lunch at the bar we had to go to reception and put money on a card first. (why don't you just let people charge to the room). Oh, and the money you put on to the card has to be in cash... all in all a nice hotel but I don't like having "silly rules" applied when i am paying to stay with you!

We (two couples) stayed for two weeks from 28th August until the 11th September and were very happy that we chose this hotel. We visited some of the other hotels that we had considered, and that had reasonable reviews on trip advisor, and we were so pleased we had settled on the Punta Negra. The rooms were spacious and very clean; the linen was changed every day; the hotel, grounds and pools were spotless. The food was excellent, there was an extensive starter buffet every night, and there were always at least four choices for the second/pasta course, mains and desserts. The only negative was that the shower had a curtain (the rooms and bathrooms are in the process of being renovated) but we were offered that we could move to a room with a new bathroom when one became available. Very relaxing holiday, close to the airport so no long transfers, and hotel staff were very accommodating. We would highly recommend this hotel and location, even for a shorter break. Half board is the best option if you do not have a car and we found it was excellent value for money. If you want to go to Alghero to eat/see the sights, the bus comes to the hotel reception and the cost is 5 euros for a day pass.

We stayed at the hotel for a weekend. Perfect location, 5 mins from the airport. Fantastic pool, beach not great. The town of Fertilia is a 10 min walk away with a few good restaurants. The main town of Alghero was a 15 min taxi ride.

If going to Alghero for a weeks holiday, then you may find this hotel a little out of the way and would probably prefer to be in the town. But perfect for a weekend break.

Small hotel located within a 10 minute walk from Fertilia. A Genuine authentic Italian town with no concessions to tourism. Best ice cream of the holiday - and pizza too! Hotel twenty minutes from Alghero - nice town, again not over touristy and interesting. Accessible by local bus 2euro return or coach service 'easy alghero' 8euro return or taxi 20euro return. The staff were competant and polite but not friendly. The restaurant staff had very little english. The hotel decor is dated including the room. The bathroom was terrible dark and claustrophobic. However, the sea view was fantastic. The rooms were kept very clean. The restaurant food was between average and terrible. The service on the first night was awful, 40 minutes between starter and main. The hotel was overstretched catering for a wedding and a youth group at the same time. The lunch menu was 10 things to do with ham & cheese, a bowl of fries at £6 was not good value. There was no food service after 2.30pm. Entertainment was average and planted outside our room and on one evening went on to 12.45 despite our pleas for peace and quiet. Lucky to have the world cup to watch. The pool area and pool guy were great as were our fellow guests during our week. Felt sorry for the couple who'd booked for two. Very disappointing not quite a total disaster, we both lost weight!

Pleasant staff and a clean hotel. However, 20 minute car journey from the town = 20euro. Tiny stony beach. Nice pools. Some rooms have sea view with nice sized balcony. Our room was next to the stairs and there was lots of noise from 7am. Not at all relaxing. Restaurant was more like a canteen.....poor quality food. Breakfast however was lovely. Would not recommend this hotel to a friend as it is overpriced and far away from the lovely town of Alghero. Would probably suit a family with young children as it is very secure

Hotel has great potential, and a few adjustments would have made a lot of difference. the food was good but very repetitive compared to the high standard of food in Alghero itself. The rooms need complete updating as they had a stale odour but were clean. the pool area was lovely and the sea view was out of this world. One of out party was vegan and the options were limited to say the least. Wine and drinks were very expensive and the wine was poor quality (house and average bottles). We complained about the wine but staff very unflexible. Tea and coffee part of full board deal but had to fight for it most nights. Very noisy in corridors from early, particularly on the ground floor. Asked staff to change but no chance and again very inflexible and denied any problems with noise. With such a spectacular view the hotel let themselves down with denying and sorting issues that would have made the difference. At breakfast and evening meals they ran out of food items particularly croissants and icecream and claimed that they had no access to kitchens after a certain time as they were locked. Occasionally service very slow but when Italian guests or family friends there it seemed to be spot on. Came away feeling a little cheated and definitely not worth 4 star status. Some of the staff however were nice but the managers were less than accommodating.
