For a gloriously chic set-up in Sardinia’s northeastern corner, this four-star gem has living la dolce vita down to a fine art. Not only will you be within easy distance of the billionaires’ super-yachts that make the Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) so famous, but you’ll be just steps from the heart of Olbia – the port town best known for its church and archaeological museum.
There’s a contemporary look in each of the 118 guest rooms, all of which maximise on living space and assure all the home-from-home comforts you’ll need during your stay. Nice touches include lovely bathrooms with showers and toiletries, comfortable beds (double or twins) dressed with crisp white linens, flatscreen TVs with satellite and cable channels, and Wi-Fi access.
Days here can be seeking out sun, sea and A-list glamour, working up a sweat in the fitness centre, and blissing out in the Zen-like spa – a sprawling space complete with Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi, hypnotherapy pool, and more. There’s also a café for all-day eats as well as a room service menu for when you’re feeling peckish in-between meals.
How to Get There
Excellent hotel in Sardinia which is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Very rich breakfast. Upgraded room had Lavazza coffee / tea machine and it was great for refreshment. Room and bed very comfortable. Outdoor pool very relaxing. Great hotel throughout. Staff is highly competent.
Lovely hotel, close to the train and bus stop. We stayed on a bed and breakfast bases. Breakfast was good tasty mushrooms and tomatoes along with scrambled eggs and bacon plus continental so would appeal to most tastes.We ate in the hotel three times in the evening the food was very good and reasonably price.Found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.Very impressed with the cleaners for our room, they changed the bed 3 times during the week we stayed which was lovely.Would without doubt if returning to Sardinia stay at this hotel.
Stayed here for a week. Chose the hotel based on mostly good reviews, great for the airport and thought Olbia would be a good base for a first visit to Sardinia which it was.
We were very happy with our choice. The staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are spacious and cleanliness throughout the hotel is excellent. Breakfast choices set us up for the day and unusually hotel coffee was good.
I went there for a week. The staff at the reception is lovely, smiling and very helpful special mention to Maria and the trainee who works with them. The hotel is fine. The room was nice and almost clean (I saw a Web in the corner). The spa is nice. The views wasn't the best. No far from the airport and the Olbia center (10 min walking distance).
I found every member of staff here fantastic, particularly the ladies in reception, who couldn't have been any more helpful.
The hotel has a good gym, which my wife used most days. I don't like the gym, so I used the golf simulator a few times. It costs 10 Euros per hour and was brilliant for getting a bit of practice in.
There is a really nice pool area outside of the hotel and we spent a few days there. The downside is that the drinks are quite expensive: A small bottle of the local beer is 4 Euros, but you can buy a large bottle at the local supermarket for 1.25 Euros.
The continental breakfast is brilliant and offers a huge choice. There is also bacon, sausages and scrambled eggs, but these were less appealing.
We had a lovely large room with a great shower and a massive bed. The room was cleaned every day and the standard was faultless.
The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the town centre, but there are also shops and restaurants within a couple of minutes.
We used the shuttle bus service to the beach a couple of times, but you need to book this in advance. Collection and drop-off was exactly at the times stated, so there was no waiting around.
They will also arrange a transfer to the airport which costs 20 Euros, this is actually about 7 Euros cheaper than the airport taxis.
All in all we really enjoyed our time here and wouldn't hesitate to return for another visit.
