Hotel Brancamaria is a four-star hotel just outside the Sardinian coastal town of Cala Gonone. With an understated elegance, it offers warm service and easy access to the majestic forests, mountains and beaches that surround it; a paradise for outdoor adventurers and beach junkies alike.
Dip in and out of the refreshing pool and indulge in an iced cocktail before dinner at Restaurant La Terrazza, with lovely country views and the sea peeking out in the distance. If you head down to the harbour, you can explore the restaurants there, or hire a boat to take you around the best local beaches.
How to Get There
We stayed here recently for 5 days as our home base to explore some of Sardinia. Flew into Olbia and rented a car to drive down, which was an easy 1.5 hour drive on some beautiful landscapes. Hotel itself is around a 20 minute walk from downtown Cala Gonone where the majority of shops, restaurants, and tourist excursions are. Good free parking at the hotel. Welcome staff was great, easy check in. Room was large, spacious, well lit and the jet tub was nice. Free breakfast every morning was varied and good. Hotel runs excursions themselves and the boat tour of all the beaches on the coast was very fun. Didn't eat at the hotel restaurant for dinner, but it looked good. Also had their own events, including a sardinian dinner, wine nights etc. And a great bartender, Marco, able to make any cocktail you can imagine. Pool was great as well, amazing view of the ocean.
No complaints at all. A fantastic base for exploring Dorgali, etc.
Very clean, spacious rooms, the hotel provides you with umbrellas for days out at beach with no charge, good free shuttle service from hotel to beach. Excellent staff that really go out of there way to help and look after you. There local knowledge of places to visit, and if they don’t no will find out for you. When returning to Sardinia next year going to stop here again for bed and breakfast, as service was outstanding and breakfast has everything you could ever ask for. Cocktails are good to ????
We arrived at Hotel Brancamaria late at night and assumed there would be no restaurant open but to our suprise the very helpful girl on the desk (so sorry i cant remember her name) informed us that food had been prepared for us!! Was a lovely suprise!!
