We have stayed in Hotel La Playa on two separate occasions. When we went back the second time (which was two years after our first visit), the staff in the hotel remembered us! It was this personal touch which really endeared Hotel La Playa to us.

When you arrive at reception you are greeted by two sisters who are extremely friendly and helpful. It's a family ran own hotel and all of the staff make you feel very welcome and comfortable.

The rooms are a good size, with comfortable pillows and bed. There's a balcony looking out onto the pool area where you can sit out and relax. The pool area is so well kept with lots of loungers and there is a restaurant there which serves lunch and dinner daily. There's also a bar so you can enjoy a drink by the pool! The gardens are beautiful with fabulous different colour flowers and it's so well kept.

The hotel is located about a one minute walk from the beautiful beach. It's about a 20-25 minute walk to the old town. The walk is along the sea front and beach so it's a really lovely walk.

I'd definitely recommend this hotel and will look to stay here when we return to Alghero once again!

lovely place with helpfull staff.
Nice grounds around the pool with plenty of room for all the guests as well as well-kept garden areas.
The hotel is perfectly situated, close the fabulous Maria Pia Beach and a 10 minute beachside walk to the impresive Old Town.
There are loads of resturants in the town but it was a delight to eat at La Playa with its good old fashioned service.

Room Tip: choose a room with its balcony facing towards the pool. Better views all around.

Pros

This hotel is in a good location,very close to beach and around a 30 minute walk into the centre. The pool is a good size. We ate lunch here as we were short of time and they do great pizzas!

Cons

Very small balcony,no table-just two plastic chairs. Small rooms. Strong drain smell in bathroom.

A general feeling of 'penny pinching'. You are charged for absolutely everything extra that you may need during your stay. There are numerous signs stating that if any damage occurs to property (thankfully this didn't apply to us), you will be charged,e.g. damage to room towels. This does create a child like feeling of treading on eggshells and worrying that if a mistake is made,there will be consequences! You are also charged to hire beach towels at 5 euros per person, per week if you need to. These are just towels that other people have left behind,do they really need to be charged; can these not (at the very least) just be rented?

When we asked to use the Internet, we were given a wifi code for one week (no cost was discussed-just billed to our room,per person), this code then ran out after 6 days. We were then charged again for a one day code to use.

We also asked for a key for the safe,again this was billed to our room with no discussion.

You are also given a miniature bottle of shower gel at the beginning of your stay; however, this wasn't replaced once during our stay.

For our anniversary, we asked if we could borrow two glasses for a drink in our room and a plate for some food that we had bought. We were told 'no'. This deterred us from buying any further food/drink from the hotel as we simply didn't want to give any further custom to them. Customer service just wasn't apparent. There was always a feeling of 'we'll get as much out of you as we can'. I understand a hotel is a business but the things that keep people
returning to such places, are the feeling of being a valued customer and quite frankly, just the feeling of being welcomed. Both these things were significantly lacking.

These are all small incidences but the costs and feeling of unwelcomeness do significantly add up. Sardinia is beautiful and most people are so friendly and welcoming. This hotel, however, made us feel more like a pay cheque than a guest.

My husband and I have just returned from a week's stay at this lovely, family run hotel and we intend to return next year - so that in itself speaks volumes about Hotel La Playa. Our room was spacious, air-conditioned with a comfortable armchair, large bed, nice ensuite, balcony with two chairs over-looking the pool and ample room to unpack things. The pool was just heavenly with many sunbeds placed around it and enough space to find shade if required. The garden is tended with great, loving care and is simply beautiful - an oasis - with palms, vines and flowers. Breakfast is served in a bright room with many tables and there is a huge choice - all self-serve. There is as much as you could want to eat and drink - from cereals and croissants to fresh fruit, eggs, sausages, cold meats, cheese, gateaux - you name it - it's there. Evening meals are, if required, selected and booked from a wide choice at breakfast time. These are fantastic value, delicious and served (as is breakfast) by the nicest, most helpful and charming staff in the restaurant area beside the pool. The sea bass is wonderful - but so was everything else we tried. If you don't manage to tear yourself away from the pool by lunchtime - and if you have room after breakfast - you can indulge in pizza by the pool too. We hired a car for the week but it's really not necessary. The beach is within just a few minutes walk and the old town and port are just a stroll away beside the sea. I really can't speak highly enough of this place and its staff.

It is a pleasant experience to stay a week in this hotel at few steps from the beach. Everything you need in a holiday is inside or around the hotel pool, garden, restaurants, supermarket, beach, see, wonderful view of Alghera. The owners will offer you the reception or the inside restaurant service, affectionate, professional making a home atmosphere. Even old, the hotel is maintained is a good condition, very clean and all functionalities. A lovely place is the garden and the pool. For those who enjoy a good meal do not expect too much from the breakfast but instead try a lunch meal, especially a grilled fish. And finally the same recommendation I received from other clients, choose the third floor with pool view.

Room Tip: Best view third floor to the pool
