On Sardinia’s glamorous Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast), the Relais Villa del Golfo & Spa is a Mediterranean retreat with panoramic views over the sea. Laid-back lounging is the order of the day here: soak up the rays on the spacious sun terrace, take a dip in the pool or indulge in a treatment at the spa. The 59 guestrooms are typically Sardinian in style, with light wood furniture, ceramic floors and traditional fabrics. Many rooms feature original arches and beam ceilings. All rooms face the sea and come with balconies or terraces, and the bathrooms feature both a tub and a shower. Opt for a Suite for extra floor space (484 square feet) and a huge balcony, or splash out on a Senior Suite to kick back in a private pool set in a secluded garden. Fill up on grilled meats and fresh seafood at MiraLuna, or head to the nearby La Colti, a family-run farm-to-table restaurant that serves traditional Sardinian fare. The Harmony Wellness Center offers massages using essential oils made on the island, and there’s a small boutique that sells local handicrafts.
In the Area
Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) is a perfect spot for beach hopping. This is an island that insists on dolce far niente, but if you must do something active, the Pevero Golf Club and the Centro Ippico Shergan polo club are nearby, and the hotel staff can arrange sailing excursions, horseback riding and diving trips. Just off the northern tip, the La Maddalena archipelago is made up of seven main islands and more than 50 islets. La Maddelena is the largest, and it can be reached in around 20 minutes from the port of Palau. Spend the days swimming, sailing and strolling; the beaches are some of Italy’s best.
How to Get There
As the rooms are spread over a variety of levels thusit is important to point out that anyone with troublesome mobility problems will be at a distinct disadvantage here as there are very many steps to encounter. The hotel also does not cater for young children. Having said that the hotel has excellent accommodation and most rooms have terraces or balconies that make full use of the panorama view. The staff in reception are most pleasant and very helpful and the in-house restaurant is good. The buffet breakfast offers a wide choice and the waiters are efficient. For dinner ' MiraLuna' offers first class cuisine but is expensive and most people dine here a few times and then try the local restaurants in Cannigione itself which is just over 10 minutes away. The hotel will take your there with their shuttle bus but there will be a charge.The hotel also has a linked restaurant, La Colti, which is cheaper and presents good local Sardinian dishes
The hotel has a small spa with outstanding masseurs and a large gym with basic Techogym equipment together with a heated pool . There is also a far larger unheated pool on the first floor with sunbeds , for a fee. .
Nice hotel with some very nice staff but not great value for money.
Pros - Pretty hotel, nice people, good location, nice breakfast
Cons - Poor internet, poor communication between staff
Requested a late check-out and had to email four times before I got a response. The response was apologetic and I was happy with the result. We then got questioned about the late check-out on arrival and on our last night we got called again about the request and told it would cost 150 euros. It just left a bitter taste.
All the people working at the hotel were great but for 300 euros a night I didn't expect so much hassle.
Booked hotel about 4 weeks before we was due to visit , 2 weeks before arrival i emailed hotel regarding early check in and a later check in of 2 hours extra , no response, on arrival the hotel said they had no rooms ready but would try their best to give us room bit earlier , so 3 hours later room was ready at 3pm , we then mentioned late check out only extra couple of hours and they said they would let us know , 3 days later day before we are due to go home i ring reception about the later check out the reply was yes you can have extra 15 minutes , after all the money we spent to stay there and all the money we spent at the empty bar every night we found this very rude of them to let us down the night before , we have now found few other hotels closer to baja Sardinia that are nicer and more updated hotels for less cost,
Will Never go back to this hotel as was the customer service was ???????????????????????????????????????? if i could have gave in no rating i would of
