Corte Fiorita - Albergho Diffuso: Bosa: The hotel-town of Sardinia
Corte Fiorita, the so-called Albergo Diffuso, is an interesting idea that matches very well with Bosa, a small beautiful town, 45 kms south of Alghero, Sardinia.
The rooms are apartments located in different buildings across Bosa's old town. There is one shared office working as a front-desk, where breakfast is served.
Don't miss the Malaspina Castle (12th century) and the frescoes (14th century) at the Regnos Altos church. The walk up the hill is worth it.
Nearest airport: Alghero
Corte Fiorita offers upper 3-star hotel standards. Every room is different from each other. Everything is within a walking distance.
Most locations have views over the Temo river.
Very convenient for couples and family parties.

Su Gologone: Sardu experience
A very good opportunity to discover the real, hidden Sardinia. This 4-star hotel is located in a secluded and quiet area in the Supramonte mountain, near Gennargentu National Park.
There is a nice beach, Cala Gonone, approx. 40 kms away of it.
Nearest airport: Olbia-Costa Smeralda
The building is an old Sardinian country house. Decoration is elegant, mixing nature elements and art with a very good taste.
The restaurant serves top-of-the-range Sardinian traditional food.
Good choice for honeymooners and couples looking for a different idea of romanticism.
There are meeting rooms for business purposes.

Il Girasole B&B in Cagliari
Sardegna is a huge island and there are many beautiful places to stay. There are also lots of websites with hotel informations, so each and every one has to find his/her suitable place to stay and to enjoy!
We based ourselves in Cagliari and stayed at a wonderful little bed & breakfast called Il Girasole - the Sunflower, a place that we will always return to and that we can wholeheartedly recommend!
Centrally located, friendly, spacious rooms, delicious breakfast and a host who goes out of his way to help you make your stay in Sardegna as enjoyable as possible!
Read more about it in my Cagliari accomodation tip!

Villa Las Tronas: A villa by the sea
The Villa Las Tronas has once been a resort of the Italian royal family and it is probably the most luxurious hotel Alghero can offer. The rooms are just gorgeous, the service was really good. The hotel has a small park and a seaside terrace with marvelous views on the Mediterranean. It is very conveniently located, you can reach the Old Town of Alghero in about 5 minutes on foot.
It is a bit "posh" yet you never feel out of place! The experience comes at a price (roughly 150,- to 280 € for a double), but if you want to give yourself a real treat (honeymoon), you should think of staying for a night or two. This 5-star-hotel feels just like the posh hotels in the old Agatha Christie-movies (meant as a compliment). Alghero is a very pretty city that should not be missed if you visit Sardegna.

Casa Speranza / Su Pasiu: Casa Speranza - Muravera
Casa Speranza is sometimes called Su Pasiu, I forgot why! . A wonderful accomodation in Muravera, close to beaches of the Costa Rei. The friendly Irish owner Declan offers diving courses and snorkeling tours, too (plus invaluable tips on local restaurants). The rooms are just marvelous, done in a rustic-country-style. Sensible price level.

Borgo Antico Hotel, San Pantaleo: And very nice it was too..
This modern hotel consists of only 27 rooms, attractively grouped around the outdoor swimming pool.
The setting is quite charming and well maintained by the relaxed staff.
Being such a small hotel the facilities are somewhat limited compared to bigger hotels, but it easily deserves a rating somewhere between three and four stars.
The village it is set in is up in the mountains and is very must the 'arty' village of Northern Sardinia, with many artist living around the village square.
This place provided an excellent base for us to explore the area .
Some of the rooms lead directly out onto the shady pool area...you can alomost imagine that you are in a private villa !

Le Meridien Chia Laguna: Paradise for kids
We stayed here in July of 2005-my wife and 3 kids. Good sized "Cottage Rooms", 4 swimming pools, kids club and a number of restaurants.
The food was excellent, especially in the evenings-try the Pizzeria or the Steak House.
Nice relaxing holiday for 2 weeks.
Do hire a car and explore this wild, rugged island.
As far as children go-this place is a mecca for them-food, entertainment....the whole resort seems to be geared towards them
Would definitely go back

Villaggio Club Porto Ainu: Full Board in the Oven
We spent a week in full board at this hotel. Everything was very good except two things:
1 - There was no conditioned air, and how we missed it... We had a rented car, and after lunch, we always went somewhere, basically to cool a bit.
2 - There is not much to see around, except nature, what becomes monotonous.
The beach was warm (with algae everywhere), the animation almost Spanish (and that is a compliment), and the week passed quickly.

Rent-Sardegna: Cheap and lovely apartments
We stayed for four nights in a great apratment on the Lido near Alghero. It was called
Trilo 8 Residenza 2 AL T8 on their website. It was across the road to the beach.
Amazing views of the sea and very handy to the old town and food shops.
There were 4 of us for 7 days and the total cost for 400 euros - you can have up to 8 people in the apartment so it is a bargain.
Naturally you have to pay extra for bedding/cleaning et al it was still cheap at half the price.
Pool and across the road from the beach - although it was early season and so didn't get a lot of use.

Ca La Somara: Relaxing Accommodation close to Porto Cervo
This place is what Sardinians describe as an Agri-tourismo. Basically a B&B in a quiet country setting that used to be a farm house. This place was an old donkey sanctuary I think. There are different rates of accommodation but we stayed in the old stables area. The room was nicely decorated in a kind of rustic Italian country style. Comfy bed, decent ensuite and a view over to the swimming pool. The breakfast was the best we had had all holiday with homemade jams, a vast array of pastries as well as fruit, cheese, local honey etc etc. The hosts Laura and Alberto are lovely. In the part where we stayed there was a small guest kitchen with a dining area so it meant you could self cater, and there was a fridge to store things in. There is an area called Zona Relax which has comfy chairs and hammocks for you to sleep in. This is a totally relaxing place to stay and we would return without hesitation.
Apart from the hammock area this is one of the few agri-tourismo's that have a pool and it is a lovely one too. There are also donkeys in the nearby field. It is well located for driving around the Costa Smerelda and to places like Porto Cervo and the surrounding area. We had a wonderful time here and recommend it to anyone.

Hotel San Francesco: Stay in Alghero Old Town
The only place to stay when you are in Alghero is in the old town. From what we saw of the new part when you drive in from the airport this is by far the better option. You can stay by the beach amongst all the other beach front hotels, but if you prefer to be in the middle of the higgledy piggledy old town then this is for you. Hotel San Francesco is actually part of the San Francecso Cattedrale, and the rooms are all part of the cloisters. Rooms are basic, simply furnished and clean with an ensuite. It is all you need really, as you will want to get out and about. Breakfast is served in the cloister area looking down onto the courtyard, which is framed with brightly coloured geraniums. It is very, very peaceful and a different type of place to stay. Breakfast is bog standard Italian style, choice of pastries and peach melba type toast things, but good coffee.
Staff were very friendly and obviously the location in the old town, as well as it being part of a cathedral are what sets it apart. There is parking in the garage next door, but one word of advice, the hotel is located down a very narrow road, with just enough room to drive one car down. Manouvering the car into the garage can be quite amusing! Alternatively if you are only staying one night you can park up in the car park by the marina and carry your overnight bags if they are not too heavy.

Silvestrino: Stintino Hotel
On our trip we were only looking for basic B&B style accommodation but this was the most comfortable of the three places we stayed. The room was clean with ensuite, TV and mini bar - not usually standard for just B&B. We opted for the superior room and it came with our own private roof terrace with sea views. The breakfast was nice enough...Italian's don't tend to go to town on these, but the coffee was good. Staff were very friendly.
This hotel is also a restaurant, and according to Rough Guides it is the best in the area. We dined here and had a great meal....one tip though, don't bother with anything other than fresh fruit and local cheese for dessert. It's a real shame but quite a few Italian restaurants seem to rely on manufactured frozen desserts which is disappointing. Other than that it was delicious and worth the money.
Also, Stintino is about a 5 minute drive from the stunning La Pelosa beach!!

sa peschedda: Basic Accomodation
The hotel is a one star hotel located beside a bridge that leads into the main town . Our room had a large balcony that over looked the riverside which looked lovely at night.
The rooms were very basic but are clean and comfortable. The shower was excellent !!
There was no lift ( 84 steps ) to the third floor.
Staff were friendly enough but had poor understanding of english.
I would recommend the hotel for its location.Its close to the sea and the town .
There was free parking onsite.
Just 35 minute drive from Alghero airport.
The restaurant attached to the hotel was busy and popular with the locals. The pizzas are to die for. They are cooked in front of you in an old fashioned oven . Try the pizza italian (Yum Yum)

www.torredelporticciolo.it/: Great value at excellent camp site 'Alghero'
BONUS-it was so hot here late last August, I've never been so brown in my whole life, 'feel the heat'.
Please contact me if you want more helpful and comprehensive information, this has been rushed a bit
I would reccomend this camp site to any person looking for very pleasant, hot and relaxing accomodation. You can camp or stay in log cabbins.
I have left the camp sites web site details here so you can see photos and find out more information on the location.
Staff are very friendly though I found I had to make a little effort to engage in conversation but I enjoyed the challenge and I think I gained a bit of respect for walking over two hours in the blistering heat to the middle of nowhere to get cigarettes (they dont sell on site).
Some of the older staff are a little less reluctant to be friendly but all in all we met some amazing and friendly people at the camp and got a real sense of camping community spirit. The word pikey has no relevance here.
This place is very iscolated if you do not have a vechile, though it would only be 20 minutes drive to the town of Alghero I saw no buses or public transport and cabs were expensive.
On my next trip to Sardinia, I plan to rent a car and start my holiday off at porticciolo then if I find anywhere as nice on my day trips, I'll move on.
Please note there is a resident dog called Hugo who may seem like the friendliest mutt on the island but infact will do anything for a biscuit, dont be fooled.
We moved to a camp site called 'Kalik' nearer Alghero, whatever you do, don't go here, it was not very clean, it was overcrowded and best described as a post slaughter battle ground from Lord of The Rings (proper Orksville).
*We camped during our stay at torre del porticciolo, it was set in a pine forest which kept our tent very cool in the afternoons.
*The shower and toilet facilities were very clean.
*The is a large swimming pool and smaller one for children.
*Small shop and restaraunt and bar
* The beach is a minutes walk and very nice indeed, although very rocky in the water so you may want some sandals or something?
about 10 euro a day to camp and 70 euro to be in a cabin.
Needed a car!
