... La Schizzula didn't let us down, we went the whole hog along with a number of carafes of the local vino, fish great, pasta great, desserts great, people great. Next time you are in town recommend you pay a visit. Then time for a siesta at home then town beach late arvo, the Don decided to get in some early kip whilst we made our other purchases, Maddie had her fix of gelato as well. Home to pack, fix up the place as the wild ...
... long. Packed up late arvo did a reccie of the town and nicked off home for a Piera and a Spritz. A casual feed at a local,pizzeria called Sa Pananda - the lads looked up the form guide and took up the challenge and ordered horse. Ney good, tasted like off meat, hope there is no galloping to the pan tonight. Trotted home to the stables and bedded down on the straw for the ...
... and wonder for some time. A whole new world here compared to the standard Castelsardo life. In many ways the streets and sights in the old town are the same as they would have been a long time ago. Down hill run home for a spell and a few Pieras. We then go and vist Piera, have a chat then have another Piera then across to another Trattoria to engage the nose bag. All in all a wonderful day right in the mainly hidden backyard. Castelsardo has much to reveal to those that peel back the ...
... Anyway off to the beach, it is called Li Cossi, it's ok but when you hear screams each time a person enters the water. They are from feet on rocks and I think the words M-L used were invigorating and shock as ones breath is taken away, the Don said once you get used to the numbness it's fine. Not for this little black duck. Another sight that I am sure you will appreciate, here we are on a beach where the majority of the women ...
Lazy day to catch up, Don, M-L and I went exploring in the morning, if Vicopisano was mountain goat territory then this place is where their parents live, talk about up and down country. The weather overcast in the arvo but this has not stopped the girls going to the town beach which is a down hill walk in the new part of town some five minutes away. Donny and I are guarding the view plus ensuring no boats enter or leave the harbour without ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Carlos V Hotel Alghero
Have read the reviews of this hotel and having looked at both types of room I can understand why people are not happy with the "old" rooms. The "old" rooms are basic, bare and have a 1970's feel about them. Some have balconies and view over the pool, others not. If you get them cheap and are not too fussed then they are ok. The new rooms are lovely. Very high standard of decor, all wood, fabrics etc and huge marble bathroom with deep bath, double shower etc. Our room had balcony overlooking pool and the sea beyond - lovely view. Seems others may not have that view so check in advance. Basic breakfast and communal areas bit bland. Staff very friendly. Old Town is 15 mins walk along sea front. Car hire available from the hotel (Smart car) for about £30 a day. Overall, nice hotel, "new" rooms lovely, stunning view and good location. Good size pool overlooking the Sea. Will need to travel a bit to get to a beach though as its rocky around the hotel. Would recommend.
We visited Carlos V on 16th Sept 2004 and stayed there for 1 week. The communal areas of the hotel were 4 star , our room was not!! It was , at best, 3 star. Furniture was old and the room was very bare . The hotel is currently going through a refurbishment and half of the rooms have already been updated to a very high standard . If you are lucky enough to get one of these rooms great, if like us you had a much older room you will feel disappointed that it is offered as 4 star accomodation .
Location is good , right by the sea but no direct access to the beach (hotel do supply a courtesy bus to the nearest beach). If you've booked a 2/3 star room than fine , if not I am sure you can do better
We thought we had booked into a 4 star hotel - but unfortunately this was unlike any 4 star hotel I have stayed in before. It is more like a 3 star - fine if that is what you have booked. It looks lovely on the outside but on the inside...the facilities are very basic - our room was bare - with very old furniture, as was the bathroom. Overall not somewhere I consider to be relaxing. We checked out on the same day. I didn't expect luxury but a bit more than a 'hostel'.
Good solid choice
Good solid 3 / 4 star , rooms 3 star , pool is 4 star , good choice for Alghero , good view from rooms , Alghero is great town to wander around .
Enjoyed a fabulous week at Carlos V Hotel at Alghero on B&B basis. Room good, continental breakfast average, service and friendliness very good. Excellent outdoor pool with very good supervision with towels available. Gardens and pool area excellent. Has mini golf and play area, tennis courts. Bus stop outside. 15 mins walk to good quality restaurants in town with fine variety of shops. Beaches small and rocky. Better beaches within couple of miles. Recommend Ryanair to Alghero Airport - 30 mins from hotel. Taxis's not cheap! Buses very cheap but not so convenient. Take the land train for a trip through the narrow streets of old town - keep your hands inside!
We had jsut booked a last minute flight to Sardinia and looked for a suitable hotel once we got there. The first hotel we found in Alghero was a 3* and it was appauling.
We booked a room with sea view for two nights for myself, my husband and our three year old daughter. We arrived at the hotel at 2.45 pm in June 2003, and were shown to our room. It was very hot and we discovered the airconditioning was not going. At once we went to reception to enquire as to how we could activate the airconditioning.
