The Florida is a lovely hotel, the staff are very friendly and the hotel is kept lovely and clean, with fresh towels daily.
Rooms are lovely with free safe wifi in all rooms and we had a fridge in ours to.
Opposite the hotel you have the beach, if you don't feel like getting all sandy the pool is a lovely place to relax.
We stayed half board breakfast was a continental buffet plus bacon sausages and scrambled eggs. the evening meal was ok you helped your self to a vegetable antipasti starter then you had your starter, main meal then a pudding.
Alghero as said by many on here is about a 15-20 min walk along the promenade, there are plenty of benches along there where you can have a sit down and watch the world go by. The old town is beautiful there you will find many shop bars and restaurant, don't forget to try the ice cream it's to die for.
A 20 min walk in the opposite direction from the old town through a small forest you will find the beautiful Maria Pia beach, if you go there for the day and feel peckish it has a restaurant on the beach.
The red bus panoramic tour is a good way to see some of the beautiful scenery you can just hop on and off it for the day, there is a little train that takes you on a guided
tour of the old town those who like history will enjoy this.
Near the old town you will find the bus stops the easiest way to find it is buy standing at the petrol station and look across the road, there's a beautiful park there too, and on the same side of the road just up the from the petrol station you will find the tourist information office, I tell you this because it will be really handy to know if you want to exchange some money like us, banks won't change it unless you have an account with them and no hotel or post office as the facility to exchange currency, there are only two places in Alghero where you can exchange money, if you pop into the tourist information they speak English they will give you a map of where to go.
Have a great holiday.More
a realy good location
this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in the staff where all happy and helpful restaurant was very good and a choice on the menu so you could chose what you wanted .rooms where cleaned every day .lovely view from our room overlooking the bay. walk along the beach to the old town about 15min could not fault the hotel first class well done everyone you made our holidayMore
Great hotel ,situated 15min stroll from main town Alghero,
This hotel is kept in great order throughout, the rooms are as shown and described in brochure,cleaned daily,the pool area is kept immaculate at all times and no need to reserve sun beds,
Recommend sea view worth paying the extra ,balcony has a great view.
The only thing that lets this Hotel down is the Food,
We stayed half board although the breakfast is ok,the evening meal was nothing to be desired it was a 3 star hotel and this was about all the food rated , I suppose you get what you pay for, child size portions and tasteless food, tough and little meat and repetitive desserts,
Wine 14â¬ bottle,
Bottle water 2â¬
Lunch in the bar (Bar Snacks) are better than the evening meals.4-6â¬.
Beach across the road ok ,
Best beaches are 1 mile up the road ,beyond the local Hospital,
2 large supermarkets behind hotel 2mins walk.
Hotel staff were very amicable unfortunately one waitress made you feel that you were a burden if you told her the coffee machine wasn't working properly she made a big deal about it, she just shoved food in front of you at the table,,,,
We would return to this hotel on a B&B basis only,
Restaurants in Alghero are great, average price for two 3 courses and coffees and bottle wine and beer 100â¬.
Great location for Beach and Old Town
This hotel is all about location!
Did lots of research before booking this place as wanted to stay in a nice hotel
- on the beach
- with a nice pool
- close enough to walk into the old town at night for dinner
Hotel Florida ticks all boxes and was full of like minded travellers (groups of friends, young couples). There is a supermarket around the corner to buy supplies (water, crisps, wine, Aperol!) and a bar across the road.
The hotel bar is also quite good and there is nothing better than an aperol spritz sundowner sitting in the front garden of the hotel looking out onto the beach and the sunset.
The beach is directly arcoss the road and is fab. However if you walk out of hotel and turn right, walk for 20 minutes down to Maria Pia beach where all the locals go you will have a much better day!
Old town is 15-20 minute (flat) walk in the evening.
In terms of getting to the hotel from the airport there is a bus (can't remember number now) but it drops you a 1 minute walk from the front of the hotel (near the supermarket) for â¬1.50. Don't bother with a taxi.
Only downside was that the free wifi only worked in reception but in reality when you are on holiday you should be switching off anyway! Shouldn't you??More
11th year and counting
Again an excellent short break at the Florida. Superb service from everyone as usual, Mariangela, Donnatella and everyone else. Only do B&B so cannot comment on evening meal. Pool area is kept spotless and there are always enough sun beds to use. Beautiful views from balcony, the old town to the left and Capo Caccia to the right to see the sunrises and sunsets. Hired a car again for 3 days for a drive around, visiting the lovely beach at Stintino which is about 40 minutes away. I normally fly with Ryanair from Stansted, (never had any problems with them) and 2 people have said that the flights may stop next year. Hope this is not true as we would then have to fly to Olbia and then 2-3 hours drive across the island to Alghero.More
