I have just returned from a 10-night stay at La Posada sul Golfo with my girlfriend and could not recommend it more highly. The room was great, clean, light and with fantastic views. The air con worked perfectly and the kitchenette was adequately stocked for all of our needs. Daniella is a great host, she welcomed us and took the time to highlight all of the restaurants/beaches/activities that she would recommend. She provided her WhatsApp and encouraged us to text her with any problems (there were none) or with any questions we had about Alghero. We stayed in the room that had the private terrace access and would highly recommend opting for the same. We had breakfast each morning on the terrace and would have a drink in the evening before heading out there too. In our experience, the terrace wasn't ever overly busy, and more often than not you'd have it to yourself, but having the dining table and chairs reserved for us was a real bonus. We will definitely return to Alghero, a wonderful city surrounded by incredible beaches (Mugoni & Lazaretto being our favourite) and we will undoubtedly stay at the Posada again when we do. Thanks Daniella for a wonderful holiday!
It makes a real difference when the owner really enjoys what they do, and with this little seafront establishment, you're made to feel very at home from the moment you arrive.
A selection of local biscuits on arrival, and a nice large seafront private terrace, all that's
required is a nice bottle of Cannonau.
The room is brightly decorated, very unlike traditional Italian decor, clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. A small kitchenette is provided, along with ensuite with shower.
The stairs up to the top floor can be hard work and possibly tedious if stopping more than a few days. I found the shared patio area for other guests to be a little obtrusive. The room lacks proper finishing and attention to detail, otherwise this would definitely achieve 5 stars. Very much enjoyed the visit, a well deserved 4 stars.
My boyfriend and I stayed at La Posada sul Golfo for 2 weeks in early July last year and we couldnt have stayed anywhere more perfect than here. Amazing location, everything within walking distance - the old town was beautiful and we had our own little rock beach right down the road to have a dip and sunbathe.
Brilliant food, we scouted out all the spectacular restaurants, which there are many of! Antonio and his wife were very welcoming and gave us some tips on where to go, the beaches as well and how to get there, the caves are spectacular, well worth a visit - we went by boat which was lovely.
Antonio's place is perfect for couples, we had the top room, with our own little private balcony - couldnt ask for more than that! we would definitely recommend this to anyone, you will not regret it! there are a lot of stairs to go up but if you dont mind that then its perfect and good exercise after all of the amazing food! loved every minute and will definitely visit again. - Christine & Liam
The apartments are located in an old building, in a very narrow street on the edge of the old town, right beside the old walls. The old town is closed for cars, so its a long walk if you have heavy bags as the streets are cobbled with pebbles and stones. The closest place where we could bring our car was here:https://firstname.lastname@example.org,8.313437,3a,75y,173.88h,88.66t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sBEtxEktMYLdVMLwvSXQ16Q!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
I would drive up to this point, unpack the bags, leave my wife with the bags, go back to the main street and park the car in the marina, leave the car and walk back to my wife and then carry the bags to the apartment.
You can park the car here or on the other side of the two lane street:
Spaces marked with white paint (AFAIR, double check with your host) are completely free.
So getting in and out takes time and planning, but once youre there you can enjoy the old town, because youre few meters away from restaurants and shops.
Like I said it is in an old building, on the second floor and the steps are quite steep, so you need to be quite fit and strong to be able to carry your stuff upstairs (if you managed to get here from your car). We booked the one with sea view and to be honest the whole seaview experience is let down a bit by the fact that the window is quite small (as in all old buildings). But nevertheless the view is there and it stretches to Capo Caccia and also provides a nice breeze on a hot day.
The bed is good, there is a small TV on the wall (mostly German and Italian channels, could use more English channels), there is a tiny bathroom with a shower.
The kitchenette has two gas fires, small microwave with the grill function. Plenty of pots, plates are available. Washing was the worst part as there is no dishwasher and the sink is badly constructed and the water doesnt run down the drain - it stays in the sink and all the dirt stays there too, annoying.
There are no wardrobes in the room, instead you have something that looks like a white medical hanger on which you can hang your clothes. This means all your bags are on the floor in front of you. There is a chest of drawers.
Because of all this both my wife and I felt as if we were staying in some big empty room, with high ceilings, with old terracotta tiles on the floor , without any rugs or carpets. It didnt feel like a cosy place unfortunately.
It was pretty quiet during our stay even though there are restaurants below it and loads of people pass below, walking on the old city wall.
Of course the upstairs terrace is great, there are tables and chairs available and plenty of room. We loved having our breakfasts there.
All in all a great stay!
PS Special mention goes to the owner who gave us some small local sweet cakes on arrival and who helped us print our flight tickets in his office upstairs - really nice guy!
Even though we didn't end up in the room we booked, we were still blown away by our 5 night stay in this beautiful location. The room was large and airy, with everything we normally need - a fridge for wine and beer normally suffices - and the piece de resistance was the view from the window - just great ! Although we were very close to bars and restaurants, there was no noise to affect our beauty sleep - when we eventually got to bed that is. Alghero is a beautiful town to explore - full of charm and character. It is also a foodies paradise and our host Antonio was extremely helpful with his recommendations throughout our stay. Highly recommended.
