The El Faro is a luxurious 4-star hotel located in the enchanting bay of Porto Conte, one of the largest and most spectacular natural harbours in the Mediterranean. About 12 km away is the Sardinian tourist resort par excellence: Alghero. This beautiful town of origin (and culture) Catalan is visited every year by thousands of tourists who love it not only for the animated summer nights, but also quite simply for the beauty of the old town, (almost unchanged over the centuries) and the long promenade. A few minutes' drive from the Hotel you can find the Fertilia Airport.
The Hotel El Faro consists of three wings joined to form a single body. The far right is called the Old Wing, since it is the original center of the hotel, built in 1956 by the famous architect Antonio Simon Mossa. Recently, the hotel has been completely renovated and expanded. In the central wing, in addition to the rooms, there are the common areas such as the restaurant, the lobby and bar with a fantastic roof terrace.
