This is a fabulous hotel set in a quiet fishing village with an eye for sustainability. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming and the food served in the restaurant is to die for. I am not a vegetarian but some of the vegetarian dishes are amazing.
If I had to choose one fault it would be lack of WIFI in the rooms but surely this is just a small problem that a trip to reception can solve.
Very relaxing and fantastic holiday.

Room tip: We had room 233 which was close to the road but it was very quiet.

We've just returned from a very relaxing week here.
Our room was lovely. Spotlessly clean and tidy. On arrival there were pool towels, towel robes and a handy beach bag on our beds. A lovely touch.
The only slight niggle was we were quite close to reception so could here the 'entertainment' that was on in that area every night. It stopped around 23:00 though so not too bad.
The restaurant was buffet style with a wide selection of local foods, freshly cooked pasta dishes each evening, some specialty cooking and an indulgent dessert station. All areas were staffed and the chefs very proud of their creations. Food intolerance notices were shown in all the eating areas and staff provided whatever guests needed so if you suffer - tell them and they'll accommodate your needs. They cook the food here not simply warm it up in a microwave.
Tip - if you love your coffee in the mornings ask for espresso, cappuccino or macchiato it will be made fresh and bought to your table. Otherwise there is endless black coffee at the drinks station on the buffet.
The pool area is gorgeous, stunning views across the bays but be warned- the pool isn't heated so you'll need to be brave!
We also found the secluded sun loungers in amongst the gardens just outside the pool area. These were basic but provided a welcome more private and natural area than the pool. It was lovely to lie and listen to the waves.
There are two beaches within walking distance both beautiful and safe to swim in. You can pay for sun loungers at both or take your towel, whichever you prefer.
Would we go back? Absolutely. When another week of R&R beckons I know where I'm heading.

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week at the Hotel Torreruja.
Food is excellent, buffet style so something for everyone. Beautifully presented and plentiful. I noted the comments further down the chain but this was truly Italian food served as Italians would eat, so primi piatti and secondi piatti, not piled high.
Staff were exemplary, very helpful and polite and friendly. Sardinians have their own identity and all areas of Italy the people have differing characteristics.
The hotel itself is lovely, set out in blocks of ground and first floor, each with patio or balcony. Rooms are spotless and cleaned every day. This is not set on the beach so there are not really sea views but this is not a problem. All rooms have shutters so a very good night sleep was guaranteed.
Plenty of local flora and fauna around the spacious grounds.
Views in the evening of beautiful sunsets. The staff in the spa were incredibly nice too.
Isola Rossa is a small typical Italian seaside town with a port and some lovely beaches and a very short stroll from the hotel.
The clientele included many Italians and other Europeans and were all very nice.
Sunbeds were available all day and I only saw one woman "reserving" before actually going to the pool.
Bags are taken to your room and collected on departure day.
A welcome drink and a soft drink brought to you at the pool each morning were a lovely bonus.
So if you want a relaxing holiday this is highly recommended.
The only minus was the woman and her daughter in the room above clackety clacked their heels on the tiled floor but a minor irritation and if I say she was the person who reserved the sunbeds as well perhaps that might explain.

This Hotel lives from its great team. They are very friendly, very helpfull and supportive. They always try to find a solution that fits to you and not the easiest solution for them, with less work.
We have some food intolerances, you tell them and they provide you every day a special meal - awsome!
The Pool is great and huge and the view is very nice. We'd like the fact that it is not one building with all the rooms inside, the rooms are in smal houses with terrace or balcony. A negative fact is out bed was over used, the mattress was shredded, but we found a solution with some pillows under the mattress. The Hotel is very clean and makes a very good impression.

My wife Catherine and I have just got back from a week stay at hotel
Relax Torreruja , hotel has a great position in Isola Rossa .

Very picturesque - but without the weather there is nothing to do here.

We have been to Italy many times in last 10 years , this is not a typical Italian hotel ! Although hotel is nice , some things need addressing !!
coffee is usually the best in Italy but here it was always warm or cold and tasteless disgusting! , food was warm and not appetising it was disgusting! , portions not big enough ?

This is the first time we have been to a hotel where the food is a buffet NEVER AGAIN!! Italy is all about quality and unfortunately this hotel was far from it. This has certainly put us off going back to Italy.

We have always advocated to friends and family that the Italians know how to cook and certainly always do the best coffee!!

Our room was very clean, but I did ask when I booked this holiday for a sea view , we didn't get this ?

Communication was appalling we had to second guest everything!

I thought prices for drinks in hotel were over priced , staff were OK but not much interaction which is certainly not like the Italians that we have come accustomed to on our previous. Trips to Italy.

We thought this hotel was very disappointing we have celebrated our anniversaries in Italy for the last ten years and have always had the best time
On the positive point we did meet some really nice people on this holiday staying at this hotel.
We also thought the payment card system was silly , surely better to charge to the room number ?
In all we were very disappointed ! Finally it takes 1 and half hours to get here from Alghero airport this is not clear as it stated 45minutes in brochure ?
