One of my favourite spot !

Very Good 8.0
We stayed here for 6 days! The hotel, really the whole property, is beautiful and very well maintained! Rooms are very clean spacious and comfortable. With beautiful sea view, very nice to wakeup to! Pool ++and water activities where nice. Canoe rent was fun for the kids. We did not use the spa. Staff was very nice and super. Breakfast was included in our stay with plenty of choice and good quality. Negatives food is slightly overpriced lunch/dinner. No ironing board in room and also not possible to borrow one at the front. Only laundry service available, so a quick iron after a trip isn't possible.

A nice spa option on the coast by Alghero
Got a slight rough start with slow check in and request to fill out a detailed privacy form, and they forgot our request for 2 twin beds and had to remake the large bed. But after that we had a nice stay really liking the property, its facilities and vantage point offering beautiful views.

Great hotel, nice beach
Hotel is located in Alghero, not Costa Smeralda. So, if you are coming to Sardinia, as I was to experience Costa Smeralda you are a 2 hour drive there. However, our stay was wonderful in Alghero, great hotel, beautiful beach. The hotel is not near anything so you really need to rent a car, which is reasonable and will let you explore the island. The capial is Cagliari, a little over 2 hr drive to the south and worth the ride. Sardinia is a gorgeous island and well worth the visit. The food is uniquely southern Italian. This is a great hotel and made for a wonderful experience as it is close to the Alghero airport. And prices much cheaper than Costa Smeralda.. Highly recommend.
