Stunning Sardinia is best known for its amazing beaches and intense turquoise seas. Ideally located on the north coast near the aptly named Rena Bianca, regarded as one of the best beaches in the region, the nautical themed Hotel Corallaro offers a home-from-home atmosphere on the edge of the quaint town of Santa Teresa di Gallura. Its low-rise dusky pink buildings encircle a charming palm-edged swimming pool, but with dazzling sands and clear warm waters only minutes away, many guests choose to spend their time down on the beach.
If you fancy a change of scene there are plenty of other lovely beaches close by including those of Capo Testa, reached by means of a winding path through the hills. Those with sea legs can take to the water and charter a boat from the hotel or take the ferry over to the isle of Corsica, which can be glimpsed in the distance. However you choose to spend your days, you can expect a genuinely warm welcome on your return from the super-helpful team of hotel staff. Make friends with the lovable well-behaved in-house Alsatian, who adds to the overall homely atmosphere. Hotel Corallaro boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
How to Get There
Friendly staff, comfortable room and good price.
We stayed two nights and enjoyed our time at the hotel. The location is close to a fantastic beach and the town centre is just 10 min walk away.
The decor of the hotel is bright and summery. However, if you want a view, make sure you specify as quite a few rooms overlook the car park. Admittedly, there was some building work going on during our stay, but this only happened during the day and didn't really interfere with our sleep. The room was large and modern and had a comfy bed.
The swimming pool is great and staff were very attentive by providing a map and recommendations as to where we should visit nearby. Parking is free and plentiful too.
We stayed here for one night on our tour of Sardinia.
We loved this hotel and wished we could have stayed here much longer. The hotel has a welcoming air about it and it was a pleasure to be in this hotel instead of the impersonal atmosphere of some other hotels.
The bedroom was light, airy and spacious with a good size wardrobe and lots of coat hangers. The room opened out onto a balcony area and, although not on the sea front, we had sea views. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had the best night’s sleep here than anywhere else on our tour. The cream and turquoise décor with the shell decorations gave the bedroom a sophisticated yet relaxing holiday atmosphere.
The continental breakfasts were as expected and good and plentiful. The evening meals were excellent in every way, the quality, quantity, and always served with a smile.
Snack lunches are available from the lounge bar.
This was definitely the best hotel on our tour for its clean, relaxed atmosphere and wished we could have stayed longer.
The hotel is situated in a quiet area with only a short walk to the beach and the village is a ten to fifteen minute walk up a steep hill.
Reception can arrange a shuttle bus to nearby beaches, airport transfers, taxis etc., in fact nothing is too much trouble and it is always service with a smile at this hotel.
Stayed for a week in late September. All the staff are helpful and charming from the owner down to the hotel dog.
Don't know why people gripe about no help with luggage, there's a lift and the staff would help if anyone has special needs. Pack less!
Beds are comfortable not the concrete one can come across in southern Europe, ask for more pillows if you like. Would have quite liked tea and coffee things in the room but maybe that's just an English thing. Lots of wardrobe space and hangers, well planned and light bathroom very fine linen and towels. (We had a 'superior' room with a view.)
Food is really good as you would expect in Italy. The breakfast spread is probably less than you'd get in northern Europe but then, eating habits are different.
Idyllic location about 100 yards from a superb, clean, safe beach - glorious sea -with a walk around the rocks to the tower. The climb to the village demands good lungs and legs.
The hotel can arrange transfers to and from airports, the marina etc., and there is a daily shuttle bus to other beaches in the area.
Lovely - would return.
The hotel is located not on the beach but not far. It is old style decorated. Breakfast was not very rich to say the least.
The reception is very kind and nice.
The pool outside is nice as well as the garden around.
A lot of parking place. There is no possibility to get help with the luggage.
The price is fair for what you get, I wold not stay there for long vacation
Stayed for 3 nights at Grand Hotel Corallaro and had an amazing time. We did make a last minute booking and the price was steep, but after concluding our stay, we decided it was well worth it and we would definitely book again. What most stood out to me about this hotel was the great customer service. We arrived Friday morning on an early am flight without having slept the night before and we were given early access to our room at no extra charge because it was available. This was a lifesaver for us. We were escorted to our room with a general tour of the hotel and grounds. Yes this hotel is older in style, but it is immaculately clean and very well kept. Staff was in general very friendly/helpful, and the owner can be seen walking the property (our cab driver pointed him out when he dropped us off and we then spotted him each day of our stay). Breakfast is included in the rate and includes and ample buffet with great coffee. We sat out near the pool area, which is lovely for eating, relaxing or having a drink. The main reason we had booked this hotel is that it is the closest to the Rena Bianca Beach, and it it just a short stroll down the street, very convenient. Also included in our rate was towel service and the use of beach chairs & umbrella. The hotel can't rent out the beach chairs on the beach (separate business), but they do keep a few beach chairs and umbrellas in a room near the front desk for guests to use on a first come, first serve basis. Another great service they provide is the Spiagga del dia/Beach of the day, where they give you free shuttle service to a nearby beach. Shuttles leave at 10am and you can choose a return of either 1 or 5pm (reserve your spot at desk beforehand). We went to Capo Testa but decided we liked Rena Bianca much better. They can also make boat tour reservations for you with the local operators to the Maddalena Islands. Lunch and dinner menus are multiple course, but we were allowed to pick a single plate off the lunch menu for dining ($12 for a first plate, $15 for a second plate, included mini salad bar). We also ate at the snack bar at the beach and the restaurant just next to the beach and both were good. Yes it is a steep walk into town, but that is part of the beauty of the area, and it's a short climb (10 minute walk tops). Cab from Olbia airport is $90 each way, you pay the driver directly, and takes about an hour to arrive.
