the view, the beach the rooms and the food, could be a lot better
On arriving at the hotel, we were stunned by how beautiful it is! The rooms were typically sardinian and really beautful, and the pool and private beach couldn't have been better. The food - wasn't much choice at breakfast and although more choice at dinner it was quite bland and tasteless. Would highly recommend eating out in nearby Porto Quato or Porto Cervo.
The way the hotel has been designed to take advantage of its great location (e.g patio bar looking out over the sea etc) The running machine in the gym needs to be replaced with a more robust machine.
Breakfast was a poor for the price no basic items like toast or bacon tomatoes ect
Location is excellent, nice private beach. Sea facing rooms have fabulous view Front desk staff need to be more friendly and less aloof. Smaller pools needed cleaning to remove algae.
the view and the position too expensive, even if it's Costa Smeralda
hotel staff friendly and efficient gym facilities very poor
Very nice location,plenty of room and numerous facilities for use in hotel plus a short walk to multiple restaurants and bars
Nice enough little place, and great setting. Reception staff not overly helpful at times.
The staff was very accomodating, they provided exceptional service and were very friendly. The rooms were new and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
Nice setting, very friendly staff and managers Rooms are a bit small, no space for a table where you can work a bit
Good sized rooms with very comfortable surroundings. Friendly staff always available to help you. Some really good restaurants in area excellent Brazilian evening only a short walk away. A good walk to town center down a steep hill not really a option for a evening out.Air conditioning could have been more efficient.
Clean, nice, good personnel, friendly, good location None
It's not a four star, but it's a igood small hotel. For what you pay it's quite reasonable. The staff was good, except for one particular member that was sometimes rude and inconvenient. Breakfast is poor.
Kind, helpful staff, offered assistance but were "not in your face". n/a
Very nice, clean, good staff, free internet small swiming pool
The staff was very friendly, room very nice and clean plus we got lucky to get a room right next to the pool. The water in the pool could have been warmer, but we have seen this as a very minor issue.
Personnel really friendly It is a 3 star hotel - do not need the pool
The staff, always very attentive, helped much on booking tours for the beaches. The breakfast is wonderful, good food, fruits, juices, pleasant ambience next to the swimming pool. Free internet access very good. Good parking outside. The lighting is poor in the bedroom. Lights could have more kW to be brighter. The location is not Porto Cervo, but actually Baja Sardinia. If you have a car OK, if not, will be a little complicated to reach the best places, to have dinner for instance.
Great location. Beautiful view of the Marina. Romantic and stylish (classic example of Porto Cervo architecture). Food is great, service impeccable. Dinner is served on one of the nicest terraces in whole town. Excellent value for money, especially having in mind exclusivity of the location! The hotel was built in 1966, so don't expect anything cyber and design-hotel like. Furniture is a bit dated, but in good condition and perfectly in line with the hotel's style and atmosphere. If you like variety of dishes for breakfast, keep in mind you're staying in Italy and 4 or 5 products for salties and sweets is considered more than enough (cooked ham, salumi, cheese, croissants, jam, butter, Nuttella...), but everything is of a premium quality. Excellent selection of home made breads!
The veiw of the marina
The staff were really wonderful, I love the view, the food was great and my room was clean and comfortable. Great location too. I would have liked tea/coffee making facitlies in my room.
Proximity to cebtre oif Porto Cervo. Comfortable lounge and bar. Helpful staff. Room not up to four star standard very basic and smal
The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was attractive and clean. Bottled water was 4 Euro!
Location, views, staff and dinner. The older manager guy is a bit aloof and obnoxious.
The location in Porto Cervo excelent. Very near of luxury shops and restorants and of Porto cervo marinas (minutes walking) very nice swiming pool. Parking available. Very nice staff. Room are very very small. Almost no space even for luggage. Very poor amenities
It was very clean and comfortable staff spoke good English and were very helpful and friendly. Beautiful surroundings, wonderful views. The choice and standard of the food in respect of the cost was not good. Poorly prepared, ie overcooked stale looking vegetables.
Excellent level of Service, Location, Friendliness of the staff shower - extremely small
The staff by the pool. One of the questions i asked when serching for a hotel was the possibility to play golf. It was possible but had nothing to do with the hotel. the hotel did not have any connections to the golfclub even thoug it was indicated in the material related to the hotel selection. I would not have booked the hotel if I knew this.
The surroundings are nice service, prices, hidden extras everywhere, i.e. 6 euro to change your towel for a clean one, 5 euro for an ice cream at the bar, 5 euro for a coke at the bar
The hotel is funky but cool. I would recomend going during the high season, august, because otherwise the hotel lacks atmosphere. It was quiet in May but pleasant. The hotel restaurant is good, but expensive. The hotel staff were all very friendly, but did not speak english very well. Location is great, but a car is needed to see the real Sardinia. Some lights were out in our room when we arrived, but they were fixed promptly.
The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The rooms needed a bit of updating and the bath needed fixing
The staff were very friendly, the room was great and the pool was very clean and large. Great location, we found some nice restaurants within 15 mins walking distance - the Clipper which has pizzas for 10 Euros or alternatively fish etc for around 20 Euros (reservations needed) and its neighbouring sandwich bar which is good for a beer and music. Also the Haiva (or something) pizzeria which is even closer. The Orange restaurant within the hotel is a must - its very reasonably priced, we paid 170 Euros for 3 courses plus wine. Also book the boat trip with the hotel. We went out on Valentina II with Enrico and it was a brilliant day. There is also Nikki beach bar which is a bit souless but good music. Better off going to the 4 poster opium beds in the grounds of the hotel. It is touted as a business hotel however there was no Wi-Fi. We paid 5 Euros for 15 mins of the hotel internet and it was so slow that we only managed to get onto one website. We complained but they were not interested. Also this is a 4 star hotel and although the sunbeds on the beach are free to hotel guests we had to pay 10 Euros for an umbrella. It is disappointing that they could not also give us an umbrella. There was a definite feeling that they would make money out of you if they possibly could.
The beach bar and good service staff, decent size pool for swimming, good outdoor ambience 1. Poor service by reception staff, who were not very helpful. We lost our bags and the reception provided very little support eg. they could not supply basic toiletries like a toothbrush and expected us to go out to get it. Hotel rigid with regards to meals, ie only 1 expensive set menu each night. Should offer a la carte. 3. Hosted noisy event up till 11pm
The differnet Views from anywhere in te Hotel The Lunges were wonderfull & "Spiffy". Receptiosn did not knwo the guests. Also, I did not like th fact I was asked to pay for all my stay at check in- Indicating a No Trust in the guests!
The garden and the pool area are very nice, good access to the beach, excellent view on the bay. The toilet was smelling very bad, poor breakfast and waiters service in the Orange restaurant. Furiously overpriced, food and drinks at the pool, very poor menu at the pool area. The staff has difficulties with English.
The towels were changed twice a day and the bedding was changed daily. The room was always very tidy and clean. The superior rooms had a great view of the sea. Nothing
the position was good and the beach was near.The reception were helpful. I thought for a four star there should have been tea/coffee facilities or an iron. The iron wasn't available to use
Everything was perfect .... I would highly recommend this hotel to stay in!
Terrific view from the room terrace, exellent restaurant service, gourmet dinner. Exellent beach and complimentary beach facilities (free towels without any stupid deposits, free beach chairs and beach umbrellas are very rare joys not only in this area but in the whole Italy!). It is a unique hotel! Hotel private beach is a little bit too far away for small kids or seniors to reach by foot especially in summertime. Beach shuttle must be available any time by request.
Air conditioning. Electric car (transportation to the beach and inside the facility). Reserved seats at the beach. Telephone and TV out of order. Garden not watered. Small swimming pool.
Very pleasant and quiet place. Great cleaning service. Mostly German tourists which is nice sign. Breakfast is ok.
Friendly staff speaking English, French, Spanish, German and of course Italian. Good quality of food and good variation. The hotel is showing some signs of wear and could use some paint at different places. An international news channel on the TV would be welcome. We had to do with 6 Italian and 6 German channels. Somewhat poor for a 4 star hotel.
Great facilities, great staff, close to a wonderful beach
The location is very good with stunning scenary and views from the hotel. It is close enough to Porta Cervo but not in the center so you feel you are not getting completely ripped off. It was described as luxurious but the service was poor and didn't give it a feeling of luxury, I felt like I was imposing on them when asking questions. It is not a 5 star hotel in my view.
Good swimming pools awful service, expensive extras, not English speaking stuff, small old fashion rooms, problems with hot water, poor breakfast, far from Porto Cervo
Peace, clean, good atmosphere, eatuiful place The distances to different places were complitely different from those mentioned in the hotel description in the internet.
First of all I liked very much during our stay at Colonna Resort was friendly atmosphere created by the personnel of the hotel. The second thing I liked was splendid swimming pools, hotel's beach. And also sardinian style of the building it's interior, exclusiveness of the location and stunning see view. Definitely, it is one of the best hotels in the world!
Great location near Porto Cervo (by car). WiFi free access. Room are cleaned and confortable. Gardens. Food (Breakfast; lunch; diner) bad and expensive. Restaurant staff. Beach and some rust around swimming pools (sea water).
The swimming pools The restaurant's staff was very rude,the answer me very bad in particular the METRE.They must work to much to worth the 5 stars they have,at least a 3 star service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cute, simple, but kind of local inrerior awful breakfast. very dry, cheap toeast, most things ready packed, low taste, low quality
we asked for a late check-out so our 9-month old baby could sleep after lunch and it was no problem at all nice hotel with friendly staff, but with 3* facilities instead of 4*
Very convenient location. With a rental car we were able to drive all beaches and places of the costa smeralda within 30 min. Porto Cervo 10 min. Baia Sardinia + beach only a few minutes walk. Very clean, mordern and nice views. The rooms are modern and clean, but have rather small windows. A little bit New York Style. For a stay of a few days the right place to be. For a few weeks a bit to small.
service was friendly and breakfast buffet was excellent. very good experience when staying there. no swimming pool and walls thin.
The views from the seating area on the top floor. The clean rooms and communication of the staff In the photos you show a pool, which there was not one.
The staff were extremely helpful and pleasent. The food was very good, the room cleaned very well with fresh sheets and towels every day. The location was perfect. The room was a bit small and basic. There was no private balcony. These were not major problems though.
Great Location, Charming Atmosphere, Great Views, Luxurious Marina Atmosphere.. Grossly overcharged for location because the service, the condition of the facilities, food and drinks variety offerings are not upto level with comparable luxury hotels around the mediterrenean....
The location, view service just every thing piece of heaven
It's closemess to the marina We had the misfortune to eat in the hotel on the first night. The hotel room smelled.
The location is good. The pool area is splendid and the people in the restaurant area have a good knowledge of english and are service minded. Our room was very nice with a small balcony. Half of the personnel in the reception do not know english and this might also be the reason why I did not perceive them as service minded. What needs to be improved is information about services available, like the shuttle bus, some flexibility and overall information about how to get to town center, the marina etc, restaurants close by, that you need to reserve a table in the hotel restautrant etc. It is expensive but so is everything in Porto Cervo.
I was given a nicer room when I asked for one. I would have liked to be offered the half board option at check in, I only heard about it from other guests later.
very pleasant staff, pool area very clean, though quite small sun bathing area when more than 10 people around charge for use of internet connection in the lobby, noise from surrounding rooms on the tiled floors, quite expensive bar prices, breakfast was quite limited so not tempted to try evening meal
Sleeping on a foam mattress in a 4 star facility is not acceptable. The noise level is extremely high
nice resort like environment; very poor value for the money; not to say that the rooms were not clean and the staff helpful, but I have paid a lot less and have gotten a lot more
Fabulous hotel ! Beautiful room and bathroom. Staff very attentive. We would certainly stay there again We liked everything but only disappointment hotel restaurant was closed and although we had breakfast provided, use of pool and gardens, we had not realised that it was the end of the season.
The hotel was lovely. The amenities were excellent. The pool area was charming with nice loungers. The pool was however frezing. The breakfast was good with a good selection of fruit and the usual continal rolls, cereal, assorted meat and cheese. The staff in the hotel were helpful, polite and friendly. The hotel bar was good with a lovely view over the harbour. There is no resturant in the hotel so it means going out to the local resturants in the evening. There is a nice one across the road, but the best are up a steep hill about 5 - 10 minutes away. It was the end of the season and so some local facilities had already closed.
The view The swimming pool and area There is no restaurant which can make things a little difficult
The fantastic view over the harbour of Porto Cervo. The beautiful exotic garden with the nice pool.
Excellent hotel room, friendly staff and great location
nice design no
A beautiful location with great views.Friendly relaxed helpful staff. It was out of season when we were there so there were few guests and it was very quiet. The entrance to the car park has an old and badly painted sign - not a good first impression! However once in the hotel it was great.
good service, nice well english speaking staff, nice view on porto cervo, very quiet, big comfortable room, very good restaurant Spinaker in walking distance
very friendly staff; excellent location the pillow - 2 would be nice - and the 1 was v uncomfortable. Also the showers could be heard from 2 or 3 rooms down - v noisy.
The hotel is on great location, just a few minutes from Porto Cervo! It is very romantic. The rooms have a big terrace. It also has a outside small pool. It is very beautiful. Me and my boyfriend stayed at the hotel during Easter break. When we got up on Easter morning and went to breakfast we got coffe, 5 days old bread that I could hardly chew, butter and marmelade! And that's it!!! I was so mas beacuse it was Easter! Than I asked if I could at least eat their egg decoration and they let me. So at least I had my Easter egg (without salt)!! Horibile!!!
Good value, nice area.
nothing, it was dirty, expensive and uncomfortable. The worst Hotel in which I have been on Sardegna everything
It was in a very good posoition. They make you check out at 11am.
I didn't like all the rules at the hotel (one was not allowed to eat or drink on the room or at the pool.It was a 6€/day fee for using the fridge...). The staff that we met did not speek english. The breakfast was very poor, have to pay extra for ham or chees for the white bread. The bed was a little bit hard so I would rekommend the hotel to invest in what we in sweden call bed mattress (5-8 cm think). It will make the bed little more soft and comfortable.
I liked the terrace area on my ground floor room, we were nice a close to the pool and it was ideal for my children. Initially I didn't have a rental car but when I realised there was nothing within walking distance from the hotel apart from one pizza restaurant I decided to hire a car which added to the cost of my stay.
Good hotel for seaside vacation, nice swimming pool. It was rather difficult to find the hotel; you will need a car to get to Porto Cervo.
A good base for exploring the area. If you don't have a car you need to stay nearer the front at Bahja Sardinia although there is a shuttle bus. Value for money would have been better but this could be reflective of the area i.e. it is expensive everywhere. Rooms upstairs would be a much better experience.
We stayed at Li Graniti for 4 days to see the costa Smeralda, location is beautifull. What we liked was the fact that there was a bus connection to and from the beach arranged by the hotel(5 min drive)
excellent food, also service in ding room ws excellent no
View, particular sunset was very nice, but hotel is too far from beach, more than the map and description let me believe. It should be clearer in the description that hotel is frequently used by German travel groups (Neckerman) to manage expectations that this is not a business hotel. Beakfast: each table has the room number pre-allocated, you cannot choose your seat, ie a matter of luck. Breakfast was buffet but not very nice considering what you get in a restaurant in Sardinia, 10min by car away.
You will need a car to stay here
the food was excellent, the staff very nice and helpfull, the hotel is very romantic and offers a beautyful panoramic view of the coast
Close to Porto Cervo, calm environment The room (220) was in front of the bar where music is played until 11pm and then people stayed talking. Two rooms are literally in the bar, so you should avoid booking last minute or where rooms are running out. If you can, book floor 1 instead of 2.
Lovely view from room, nice location of hotel (albeit v far away from beaches, village etc.) We stayed here close to the time when the hotels closes for winter (which we did not know beforehand), so v few facilities available and general feeling of closing down was obvious. Food and room mediocre.
Being up amongst the large granite rocks and boulders, with interesting natural vegetation that could be viewed from the balcony and the so called 'relax area'. Also stunning views across the coast from the hotel terrace.
Everything was great. The hotel was well situated and close to a number of small towns, places to eat, beaches and beautiful coastline. The staff were excellent and more than helpful. The hotel has beautiful grounds and around the swimming pool is peaceful and tranquil. no..
Good location, good view from the room, nice surroundings and close to Porto Cervo. Rooms a bit small and furnished like a 3 star hotel. Quality of the breakfast a bit poor. Hotel need to renew a bit outside and inside infrastructure.
I chose this hotel because its location, close to Porto Cervo and to some of the most beautiful beaches. I liked its position, in the middle of lush green pines and bushes, with a nice, although small private beach. The breakfast was fair, but not with the choice expected for an hotel of such category, served in a restaurant with very small tables, almost children size. The bar food was cheap in quality, but with expensive prices. Same unjustified high prices we found for the fridge bar, even for items as essential as water. In my booking I had specified that we were a couple in a romantic trip, but to our surprise we found the room with twin beds, with a balcony hidden in a corner, without any view at all. To our request to change the room, the concierge told us that he had no rooms available and the rooms they place on booking.com were the worst ones, those that normally they are unable to sell otherwise. We had booked the pre-paid non-refundable offer, so be careful when you make your choice! Consider indispensable a car to move around.
i Iiked the good corresponding of quality and price, because Porto cervo area is very expensive, and this is the only one hotel in this price range that has it's access to the beach where it is possible to swim and so close to Porto cervo. at my next trip to Porto cervo I will stay in hotel le Ginestre again.
location staff quiet cleanliness etc No
Simple booking system made very good value for money booking on the web. The price we paid was a lot less than the rack rate. Nice hotel, nautical atmosphere.
Nice decor in the rooms and pool area had great views. Easy to find and close to the clubs in Porto Cervo. a long walk to the hotel beach which was quite small and the water seemed less nice than at the beaches
nice view, and nice meals Temperature of the pool, it was colder then the sea
concierge had good restaurant recommendations. beach was relaxing. you could take a 10Euro taxi to clubs billionaire and the other big one. A taxi to town in 20 Euro. spa had the absolute worst massage of my entire life. avoid it at all costs. If you go to the carribean you get spoiled with the drinks/food on the beach-not here.
Staff was pleasant and professional, prompt service from reception to waitresses; a quite relaxing experience, food was excellent, hotel very clean, room was cared for several times during the day Hotel might consider providing transport from/to Olbia, and to/from Porto Cervo, obvioulsy against reasonable payment, which undoubtedly would be cheaper compared to the unbelievably expensive taxi fares - from/to Olbia airport 80EUR one way; from Hotel to Porto Cervo 20EUR one way (my most expensive only 1 km transport ever); or advice in its website that hiring a car would a better option which would aslo allow to visit around the worth seeing Palau, Baia Sardignia, Porto Rotondo etc
Excellent hotel.We booked Cala Bitta Hotel for 2 nights and ended up staying 10 nights.The hotel has unique and welcoming atmosphere, very clean with all the facilities you need and even more.Note that one thing you should definitelly know is that the price is inclusive of breakfast and dinner which you can't see unless proceed to book.The food is so tasty, sardinian style, 4 courses with a choice of 3 dishes per course.The staff is extremely helpful and friendly.Our very best compliments to Pier Carlo and Allesandra in the restaurant and Federica at reception who were always cento percento. The hotel is situated on Cala Bitta beach and has free shuttle to Baja Sardinia and Porto Cervo.We strongly recommend this place. Irina & Julian None
Nice rooms, good location, good value for money. Since we were in preseason, there was not much selection of food at meals, we had 3 courses instead of buffet.
sunny weather, handy for beach, easy parking, booked as only one room left then found only 10 people in 150 room hotel.only time you see staff is when they are eating. bar and dining room unattended. food dreadful. same breakfast put out daily, one day no bread, cutlery, cups for orange and no staff!
Private beach, good location, large appartments, free wind surfing lessons. Restaurant in 3 botti hotel which is 3 minutes away by car is highly recommended. We were the only non-Italian guests in the hotel, staff does not speak English, which was a typical problem in Costa Smeralda
The athmosphere, the staff, the location
The hotel's structure and restaurant. It was a little difficult to find by car. The parking was a little far and there was no porter to carry the luggage at night. The parking was not cheap (around 20 EUR per night).
Relaxing no hassle do as you like hotel with a view to die for Could benefit from a greter variety of food
Excellent location, very friendly and attentive staff. Great food, great pool. The room was large and clean with a private terrace overlooking the sea.
The friendly staff is exceptional. Good location and good price. Everything was perfect
The Hotel was very good rated, but I had some doubts from the pictures. However, it is a versy nice hotel, which is build on the hill in a kind of bungalow style, but all bungalow's are connected. So you feel like having a own appartment/house, but are in a complex. nice. very nice view, ok breakfast, big rooms, big balcony, friendly personal. Good! The good beaches are a bit away, but there are some, so don't worry.
The food was very good with a variety of different menu's throughout the week and good local wines. Breakfast was also good. The waiting/bar staff were exceptionally helpful and accomodating. The hotel has nice views and is nicely decorated with a huge selection of information on places to visits in the library. You will definately need to hire a car to stay here as it really is quite isolated and roads are too dangerous to walk on. There are far too many steps - to get from the hotel to our room, we had to walk up 40 steps in total. We are young and fit but that would be difficult for anyone outside of this category. Just a silly thing, the maids tend to turn up at different times each day which is an inconvenience when you are trying to relax, they don't stop talking!!!!
staff, restaurant there is no beach in 100 meters as it was in the description.
The private boat was the only thing that makes this hotel comparable to other beautiful hotels on the island. The service was distant, cold, anything but welcoming, staff are not client savy. Never ever go to this hotel with kids, they are not welcome by staff or guests. By the way, the north of the island is overrated. They dont have a beach!!! The ones that are close are terrible and full of tar.
Great breakfast by the pool, really nice and romantic, very pleasant scenario. Few rooms, few people. The room had a gorgeous view. Although the hotel is closer from the village, it is more convenient to have a car if you want to explore the surrondings or go out for dinner.
