... 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. Lunch today we have been looking forward to, it is in a small lane way with tables, the kitchen out of a small door way and more tables opposite in through the other side of the lane way. Talk about high tech they also have wifi so some get their fix as they have maxed out ...
... 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 pulled out a Sardinian beer then whipped the top off, grabbed a glass and presented then to me on the bar and said - Biera !!! It is just prior to 11.00 am. Naturally we took the beer and went outside to tell the others this story, still none the wiser regarding Piera. After our drinks we went to another section of the hotel and asked, she starts her shift at 4.00 pm this afternoon. That sorted we wander up home and then pack for our picnic at the recommended spot as per the ...
... to stay away from the crowds will find some secluded little bays, but there are also large beaches to enjoy a swim. All sounds good but, picture this in your minds eye - a couple of Italian property developers sitting around after a long lunch and with plenty of vino under their belt discussing the most outrageous place that they could find, pick up the land for nothing in the middle of nowhere and develop an estate. Then find a whizz ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Punta Negra Alghero
Stayed here for two nights in the last week of September. Paid extra for a view of the sea which was well worth it. Room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Staff really friendly and helpful. Very quite and relaxing atmosphere. Did not eat in restaurant except for breakfast which was good. Too far from centre of Algerho but Fertilla a small town with a couple of nice restaurants is close by. The beach which looked on the website is very small however staff gave us directions to local beaches so it was not a problem. Definately recommend this hotel.
The best hotel in Alghero
We went to Punta Negra at the end of October and wos a fantastic time.
Everything about this hotel was superb. The rooms were spotless, comfortable and well equiped and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and the sea fantastic.
I highly recommend this hotel and we'll definitely be staying there again.
One of the best holidays we have had.
We were nearly put off from going here by two reviews, but we took a chance in early September
We had a great time. Very clean, great polite attentive staff. We commented that the room did not have a mirror for ladies to use for make up and dressing, when we came back, the room had aquired a full length dressing mirror, full marks.
The beach is small and private for the hotel, you dont need to rush down, space for all, sea water was crystal clear and fine white sand.
Can reccomend the sea water pool in the afternoon, a deck chair in the shade is idealic.
Food very good Italian style. This is a quiet hotel that is suitable for the family. Air conditioning works ok.
We are a middle aged couple and we thoroughly enjoyed it, We will return.
I had a lovely stay at Hotel Punta Negra from July 30th to August 18th. Beautiful beach, good weather, nice food... it was so relaxing. The hotel staff was always friendly, smiling. Although I do not speak Italian, we had no problem of communication, as the staff of the reception, animation and the restaurant speak English... I have already booked my stay for next year at Hotel Punta Negra. It's really a nice hotel and I will of course recommend it to all my friends and relatives.
I don't really know what the 2 bad reviews on this hotel were all about, but I can only think that these
It is the 3rd time we go to Punt Negra and we like it so much because in just 2 hours we can arrive in a beautiful city like Alghero and the wether is totaly different from London.
In the hotel the meals are excellent and the rooms are confortable but the best for us is the view, very romantic.
The staff is frindley and the rooms are very clean.
The Hotel looked great on the website, but once we arrived we found that the beach, dazzling white on the web, was a tiny piece of dirty hard wet sand next to a road, and the water filled with algae that bulldozers were removing! the pool much smaller than it looked, and the rooms, although clean and serviceable, were just that--serviceable. No hair dryer,one tiny soap, a toilet that had to be manually stopped or it ran all the time--also we were right over the covered vernda and could hear lots of noise till quite late. One day the room was never made up (one of four nights).
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and could not wait to leave. The days were hot (26 degres +) but the staff did not consider this when setting the Air conditioning. They still had it set for winter so the rooms were terrible at night, to hot to sleep and if you opened the doors you got attached by insects. We had to move rooms because it was too hot to keep the doors closed and when we oppened them our room filled up with insects. So you had a choice be eaten alive or live in a sauna.
The hospitality that you want to find in every hotel
I went there in a low season period with my girlfriend and I found very nice people always smiling and leting me fill at home. The beach is just amazing and the hotel is very close to the towncenter. We were in Alghero everynight and it was really funny.
If you have the chance to go, just go.
And if you want ask me more about.
