About El Faro Hotel & Spa

Hotel inspired by sunken ship, overlooking Baia delle Ninfe

Short drive to Alghero

The El Faro Hotel & Spa sits on a promontory in the Porto Conte nature reserve, looking across Baia delle Ninfe to Capo Caccia. It's a 20-minute drive to the narrow alleys of Alghero's old town, 15 minutes to the airport, and 55 minutes to Stintino and the beautiful beach at La Pelosa.

Boat to Neptune's Grotto

A 20-minute drive or boat ride from Alghero gets you to the vast caves of Neptune's Grotto on Capo Caccia, also a great spot for diving. A scenic 70-minute coastal drive south takes you to the picturesque cobbled streets of Bosa, watched over by medieval Castello Malaspina.

Free breakfast, sunset terrace dining

Start the morning with a free breakfast. After a massage, sauna, or salt scrub at Thalasso & Spa, the private bathing area is the ideal spot to pull up a sun lounger and while away the hours by the sea. A health club is also available. Sardinian specialties at sunset on the terrace at Baia delle Ninfe Restaurant are a great way to round off your day. There are also 2 outdoor pools for your convenience.

Tranquil feel, sea views

The air-conditioned guestrooms at El Faro Hotel & Spa have simple decor for an uncluttered, tranquil feel, and most have balconies, perfect for kicking back with a drink and soaking up the views of the Baia delle Ninfe. There's free WiFi so you can stay connected, an LCD satellite TV, and a minibar.
