... view of the health system in Sardinia – no complaints – very well looked after. A course of antibiotics and some slow days will see her mended and ok to fly to Rome on Friday.

We have continued to explore Sardinia's beaches this week… Spiaggia Quartu San Elena, Spiaggia Castelsardo, Foxi Manna, Spiagga Barisone…all amazing with beautiful scenery, warm water, sandcastles to be built, and gelato to be eaten (Cioccolata for Abby and Fragola for Jackson) . Even when it rains, Jackson and Abby run up and down the long stretches of sand while Matt and I enjoy another Ichnusa, the local ...
... into their shop fronts which are part of their house. They show us how they do them and the different types, they are good at the sales pitch as well.

A road trip today, we saw a great postcard yesterday of the beach at Stintino, then Deb sent a message via viber to do the beach at Stintino, then Piera said we should do a day trip to the beach at Stintino so off we head.

... businesses to serve the old town population and tourists, we hunted down the Trattoria La Schizzula, Kim says is good and serves the best desserts, it is made up of a few tables in rooms either side of a lane way and also a few tables along the lane way.

Historical Traveler Reviews La Margherita Alghero
Booked over the telephone and had a faxed confirmation but they could not find our reservation.
Asked for a sea view and had to virtually stand on the bed to see the sea.
Reconstruction works in the hotel going on until 1800 hours - the noise was terrible.
If you like warm orange juice, warm milk and days old coffee for breakfast then this is the place for you. The tea was a very nice shade of grey.
The only good thing about the hotel is that it is centrally located to the old town.
We were very happy with our stay in this hotel towards the end of October. The location is excellent, very close to the old town, 5 minutes' walk from the main bus terminus and tourist office and there is a small supermarket right across the street. Maybe it was due to the great weather (27 degrees and lots of sunshine), or to the off-peak season: certainly the hotel staff, and indeed all the townspeople, were courteous and helpful at all times. If we get back to Alghero we will certainly stay at this hotel again.
Not the friendliest place
The first room we were given was old fashioned and cell like. We upgraded to one with a balcony for £5 a day and this was much better.
Staff were in general surly and unfriendly. They lost our key one day and had us going up and down trying out keys. When they found the right key, there wasn't even a sorry.
However the hotel is in a very good position right near the old town and will be ok if you just need somewhere to sleep.
Staff were always courteous and friendly if you made the effort to greet them and be friendly. The room was very clean, good linen, firm bed. Some of the furniture in the hotel lobby and the room was dated. Excellent bathroom and wardrobe. Small but sufficient balcony, window box could stand some attention. TV and Air Con worked OK+. Room was also cleaned daily.
during the stay at la margherita our party encountered some problems e.g., the hired mini fridge was not working. The proprietor was rude and unhelpful. This was going to be reapeated on more than one occassion, leaving us suprised at his lack of professional ability.
We stayed june 4-9th. The location is ideal being a 3/4 minute stroll to the seafront and the pleasent old town centre.
GIVE IT A MISS!
Apart from a good entrance hall, this hotel has nothing to offer. Compare: 80€ double room with very old furniture, outdated decor, unfriendly staff and a poor breakfast in an anonymous residential area quite far from the beach. If you go to Hotel Florida, for 76€ you get a very smart, modern double room with terrace, clean ensuite, helpful staff, lovely breakfast with swimming pool and bar right on the sea front.
This was our second time staying here. If we come to Alghero again, we will stay here again.
Dull but decent
If you are just looking for a place to lay your head and not worry about the 1960-70 decor, then this may be the one for you.The rooms were kept very clean and you do have access to a small balcony where you you can watch eveyone walk past , below you. The hotel is minutes away from the historico centro.There is even a supermarket on your doorstep if you don't want to take up the dull breakfast offering the hotel provides. Overall , the hotel has a past it sell by date feel but it provides all the basics, in a no fuss manner
Fabulous position, faultless hotel
As most of us do these days, I booked this on the internet, mainly because of its central position, close to the beautiful old town and within three minute walk of the sea front. The accommodation was certainly not the most expensive available, but the hotel; its rooms; linen; food; cleanliness, etc., could not be faulted. The handy sun terrace on the roof was useful, and its quiet position is possibly the best location of any hotels in the area, being within a short walk of numerous mouth watering restaurants, and close to all types of shops, with a supermarket across the road. I'll be back!
