A week in the sun
First time here would go back thats always a good sign, the hotel is a little dated but was staffed by some lovely people, friendly & attentative, we stayed half board and enjoyed their breakfast and dinner, some good wines also. Pool was lovely and clean the weather was unusually hot for time of year. The old town was nice of an evening 20 min stroll from hotel. Mia pia beach anther 20 min stroll other direction very nice slightly crowded. There are plenty of decent restaurants had some fantastic lunches. Bar across the road from hotel very nice lots of locals great sunset. Very enjoyable (bar first night snorer never heard anything like it) thankfully they left next day.More
Go for the beach not the room
Stayed 4 nights in July! Rooms were small, requested view was denied, AC worked some required a key to turn on! Hotel Could use an upgrade, still uses key, no fridge, no ice, no wifi in rooms! For the money spent know that you're paying for location not amenities!!More
Good relaxing holiday
Returned from this hotel this week having had a wonderful relaxing holiday. The hotel is a three star hotel so one should not expect four star services. However there were times that we experienced a higher standard than some four star hotels provide. Having read the one very negative response from crazydiamond we wondered if he had actually stayed here! All the staff we met be they reception, dining room, domestic were very polite, welcoming and above all, helpful. The life guard was hard working, taking a great pride in the excellent pool area. Spotlessly clean and tidy. He maintained the pool, the childrenâs pool, the Jacuzzi along with the surrounding gardens, always with a smile. Despite Italian school holidays having commenced for much of the day there was a very calm atmosphere and thankfully, no music. Despite the front of the hotel and the pool area being on the main promenade and thus the main road one has to cross to get to the sandy beach, the only external noise came from a beach side cafÃ© in the evenings. Hence we would recommend a sea view room on the northern side of the hotel. You get a clear view out to sea, south to the Old Town and north to the magnificent headland and sunset. The bedroom was not over large by more than adequate with air conditioning, a balcony and a very well appointed shower room/toilet. Toiletries consisted of soap, shampoo/shower gel and there was limited space for our own. The bed was a beautiful king size and, while all people like different softness/hardness this bed was ideal for us. There was plenty of Hanging and drawer space along with surfaces. Unusual for hotels the lighting was excellent. We stayed for a week when there was a heatwave (32oC) and the one thing we could have used was a fridge. The safe was really quite small. Breakfasts were adequate, you wonât starve, and consist of cereals, fruit both tinned and fresh, bread/toast, rolls, cakes/biscuits, limited hot meats, scrambled egg, just one variety of cheese, hot and cold drinks. Bread for toasting and crusty rolls, which can get stuck in the toasting machine if not cut well. It would have been nice to have a variety of cheeses and breads. We never experienced the evening meals as the menu was very limited. There are so many very good restaurants and pizzerias within walking distance. Lunches were also limited but if you like pasta, sandwiches or salads, you can get by. Drinks from the bar are very reasonably priced and can be delivered to the open covered terraced ort the poolside. To get to the Old Town means a 20 minute walk, a half hour stroll, a bus journey (â¬1 each) or taxi (â¬7 in total). The airport is 15 minutes away by taxi (â¬20) Alghero Old Town is compact and surrounded by medieval towers and a bastion wall. The streets within this area are mainly traffic free and contain surprises around every corner, Piazzas, churches, ballista and many restaurants with a large variety of menus, gelaterias and shops from mini general stores to some very up market outlets. If you are looking for Indian or Chinese food, forget it. Everything we ate out was freshly cooked including meter long pizzas â the best pizzas we have tasted anywhere. What we found interesting was that the majority of holiday makers were Italians from the mainland followed by the British and Scandinavians, the latter two thanks to Ryanair! Other activities include a 50 minute boat trip to |The Neptune Caves, a huge cavern in the cliffs. It takes about 40 minutes to get around the caves and then a 50 minute journey back along an interesting coastline. Within Alghero you can get an on the road tourist âtrainâ through the Old town or preferably a horse drawn carriage. Alghero has a terminus station and in 30 minut3s you can be in Sassari the second city of Sardinia. As you can see from the above why we just cannot understand the very negative response from crazydiamond both about the hotel and Alghero.More

When my dad was turning 70 years old this summer he wanted to celebrate it with us (my mum, myself and my boyfriend ) in Sardinia, and he chosed Hotel Florida. The first impression is wonderful. The hotel was placed a few meters from a lovely beach, 15 minutes from the old town and all it's facilities, and the pool area is lovely! We soon experienced that the staff is very polite and service minded. I've worked within the hotel business myself for some years, and the staff in the reception, household, bar, pool and restaurant was flawless. Thank you all for being like that! It's highly appreciated. Me and my boyfriend had a room facing the back, while my parents had seaside view. Our room was quite bigger, but our view was a huge lot, so I would rather have my parents room if I were to chose again. Our room was so hot, even with the aircondition at 16 degrees it felt like a sauna. Even during the night. You could easily see that the airconditions at the hotel really could need an upgrade. My parents had the same problem, just not nearly as bad as us. The biggest problem for us during our stay was that we had preordered breakfast and dinner at the hotels restaurant. The breakfast was okei, even though they did not have a good selection for bread. Me and mum who has a stomach disease did suffer from lack of whole grain food. But fair enough, we still enjoyed our breakfast. But really. What's up with the dinner? Either one of us is picky, but still, we left the restaurant at night hungry. Even though it's 3 courses (4 if you include the starters buffet). The meals we're so bad. Typically heated up in the microwave - bad! Often we're items at the plate cold. It had bad taste and it was too much olive oil. They sometimes served decent pasta at starter course, and the dessert (I had tiramisu almost every evening ) was lovely. Some nights we had to eat away from the hotel, even though we had paid for the dinner there. The dinner experience ruined our whole 2 weeks vacation, and because of that none of us want to come back to hotel Florida. If they upgrade their kitchen and their aircondition system, we would love to come back. Alghero is beautiful!! More
Susannen88, Bergen, Norway
I booked this hotel through Expedia, and emailed them direct to see if we could upgrade to a sea view. I got no reply, and on arrival was shown to a horrible, dark, small room behind reception overlooking a carpark. It honestly felt like a punishment to be there, my view from a north London semi-detached home is better. If I had wanted to reach out and touch the cars I could have done. The pool area was nice, breakfast was mediocre and the location was good. But it's all overshadowed by the awful room we had to stay in.More
