With the soft sands of Alghero Lido just opposite, the Florida Hotel is a great base for beach-lovers. You can also expect a sea-view pool area and a restaurant with Sardinian specialities on the menu.
Right on Alghero’s seafront, this place is just a hop across the road from Alghero Lido with its amazing sunsets. The town centre, meanwhile, is a 15-minute stroll along the Passeggiata Busquets. It’s a romantic stretch serving up nice views of the port and beach, with plenty of bars and restaurants lining the route.
Design-wise, the hotel works a retro Sixties look – think cubist-style balconies and flashes of funky orange. Step inside, meanwhile, and it’s a whole different ball game. The reception is spruced up with a classic yet contemporary combination of lemon-yellow walls, marble floors and spotlights.
The restaurant follows suit. It’s a light and airy eatery complete with smart wooden furniture and splashes of bordeaux. And it’s the perfect sea-view spot to tuck into Continental breakfasts or Sardinian specialities later in the day.
As for the bedrooms, you’ll find simple, smartly-dressed spaces. On the décor front, they all showcase a Med-style mix of terracotta floor tiles, neutral walls and wooden furnishings. And as for mod cons, air-conditioning comes as standard. All rooms have a private balcony, too, with a select few offering up seaviews.
Rounding things off is the pool area. There are two pools, both sea-facing, with one for adults and the other for children. With a pool bar, terrace with flatscreen satellite TV and plenty of loungers also thrown into the mix, you can easily while away the hours here.

Normal hotel with pool in front of the beach
The hotel is quite ok for the price off season (80â¬/doble room per night).it has a pool and the location is nice, in front of the beach and not too far from the center (15min walk). I wonder if when the hotel is full in the summer all people do fit in the pool (but i guess many will go to the beach too). we were quite disspointed arriving at the hotel and not getting a room with view to the sea,though we asked and were told it was full, but we did see some unoccupied rooms from the outside.we asked to get another room too because the glass of the balcony ledge was broken and they did immediately transfer us to the one next to it. To our misfortune we shouldnt have, as the wifi connection did reach the other room but not the one we got afterwards. So when wanted to check the internet i would have to go and stand next to the bathroom wall to get a very low connection. Nevertheless the pool was very nice and the stuff friendly. The breakfast was very tasteful and good quality but theree could have been a bit more choice of variety. In average i d say its a good hotel for your summer vacation.More
Book a sea view room if you want to enjoy balcony and views
A retro looking hotel with a lovely pool. Definitely book a sea view room though as the rooms facing out the back looked into the car park and didn't look inviting to sit on the balcony. We booked a sea view room even though it pushed the price up. Worth hiring a car to try out other better beaches on the island but the beach opposite hotel is still fine to do for a couple of days. The old town is the place to head to in the evening - a pleasant 20 min walk along sea front. More

Great Family Run Hotel
Great location..... White sandy beach across the road from the hotel entrance, fortified old town 15 minutes stroll along the promenade, pine fringed beach 20 minutes stroll in the other direction, 5 minute walk to the train station, train â¬3.8 euros return to the main town Sassari, well worth a day out. Local buses and coastal tour bus nearby. Relaxing cocktail bar Macaibo on the beach promenade outside the hotel. Boat and coach trips to the fantastic caves. We booked through Thompson and stayed in the first two weeks of September 2014. The family run hotel has a very unusual design, which gives it a unique feel. The restaurant is positioned to get the most out of the fabulous view of Capo Caccia cliffs on the horizon. The room faces West and we were treated to spectacular sunsets while we ate our evening meal. We stayed half board and really enjoyed the food. During the breakfast buffet you order food for the evening from a set menu which did not repeat for the two weeks we stayed. The evening meal starts with a cold buffet, followed by primo, secondo and dolce courses with waiter service. The staff, were really friendly. As few northern European tourists come with much Italian they really appreciate it if you have a go, however limited. One slight negative was the morning coffee machine, but once we found the espresso/hot water combination that was OK. There was no after dinner coffee included with the evening meal, but excellent coffee served in the bar. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Though on the side, rather than the front of the hotel, we still had great sea views from our balcony which had the sun from early evening onwards. There were several areas that seemed under-utilised. There was a lounge/library/pool room in the basement that was very quiet, though the weather was so good so we spent little time indoors. The pool was great, deep, long and quiet enough to have a proper swim, immaculately kept with poolside lifeguard supervising and keeping the area spotless. Around the pool, there was plenty of room and variety of sun/shade/breeze. Based on the official 3 star rating, I give the place full marks.More
