It was a perfect base to explore the east coast of sardinia.Good restaurants and the peace and quiet in the evening.Shower excellent Overpriced for what it is.The superior rooms are in my opinion not superior and you only get a small port view and without any seating for the balcony as it is impossible to get 2 chairs on it.Overall I was disappointed as I didn't feel I got what I had expected from the pictures and description of the rooms from the hotel.Breakfast was from 7.45 but you must then wait 15 mins while they go and buy the bread for the breakfast.If the reason for this is the shop is not open until this time then they should make the time for breakfast from 8am or later.
The staff was very friendly. Please be aware that this hotel is located in the town Palou. Although this facility is located in the harbor where you see the boats, it has no swimming pool and no sunbathing facilities. We had made a reservation for 5 days but when we saw the location wanted to reduce this. The next day all of the money was taken of the account and no reduction was given. Therefore we needed to pay 2 hotels. The restaurants next to the hotel were not great and very expensive. Absolutely not value for money. I would not go back! We went to residence il mirto at Capo d’ orso. I can recommend this.
the location to facilities and area. very good no pool, even a small cool off tub would have been usefull
the amability of the personal trying to solve any problem. the views of the room
Location, interior, room (we had asked for double room with bath tub), staff, presentation, breakfast, all wonderful. It would be great if the price was not so high, so that we could have stayed longer, but it is understood that hotels are never inexpensive. It certainly deserves 4 star, as nowadays it is difficult to see the quality in 4 star hotels.
The staff and facilities at La Vecchia Fonte are excellent and everyone speaks adequate English and is patient with broken Italian. Everyone was pleasant and helpful at all times. The facility is very nice for Palau and meticulously clean - so it is a perfect match for the professional staff. There is a street market in front of the hotel that starts at 9 pm each evening and all day on Fridays. Probably should be disclosed so that guests who are light sleepers can stay in a room not on the street side.
The location of the hotel in the center of Palau was excellent, also the rooms were very cosy and the staff very helpful and friendly.
Great location Rather noisy TV at breakfast, shame bar was never open as not high season
that palau was central to a lot of good locations if you had a car the car park in front of it . as we had paid for sea view
Close to the port, the city center, and the ferry.
The room had a good view and was clean. The bar area was relaxing (though see comments below). The location is good - close to a good beach and the town of Santa Maria. The dining room in the evening resembled a canteen. It was brightly lit and the waiters brought food and removed plates without paying attention to the thought that a group at a table wanted to have a meal together. The aim seemed to be to push the diners through ASAP. This was in contrast to the bar area which encouraged the thought that the dining room would be like a restaurant. It is not. The menu was also limited, and one of the three main courses was off on the only night we ate there. The reception staff were friendly, though lacked local knowledge. As an e.g. I asked for the location of a tourist activity and was sent to the wrong part of the island.
Ideally situated close to beach and town with bonus of a car park The room was clean and spacious . The dinning room was well appointed and staff attentive. However the food was processed and diner reminicent of packaged holiday food from the 1970's
The position,near the beach and not too far from the town. Average room was supposed to be the best in the hotel.No beach towels.Poor food and regimental seating plan.Uninformed staff gave us wrong ferry details.
Staff were very friendly throughout. Location is excellent, pretty much on the beach and close to everything (even though you do have to walk up the steep hill to get to the square). Rooms / bathrooms were great and very comfortable and the poolside / bar area were brilliant for chilling out. Not really a 4-star hotel. More of a 3-star. But having said that, the location was great so it makes up for it.
The staff is very helpful and always smiling. The hotel is located very close to the beach and at walking distance from the town centre. Big, free parking available to hotel guests. Poor breakfast and rooms a bit noisy. Quite expensive for the standard offered but I'd recommend to pay the supplement for balcony and seaview, as the other rooms are not very big and overlook the back. This is an old fashioned Italian beach resort. Good if you look for a beach holiday in full board - although the food was not impressive. Guests in bed and breakfast are treated 'differently'.
Our room had a 'sittinig area' with partial view on the sea. Our bedroom area had a view on a parkinglot and a piece of fallow land. The style was very oldfashioned. The bathroom was sad. The pool was much smaller than it looks like on the pictures. There were plenty of stairs and no elevator. Anybody with any type of walking isue would not be comfortable. There was a bus going and coming from the beach, 2x a day, and the beach was far away. The breakfast was a bit sad.
Comfortable, clean, good pool, frinedly staff. We enjoyed our stay Quite a walk from the town centre.
Nice layout of rooms around the small pools. A small "terrace" on our room, though not all rooms had this. A nice view over Palau and the smaller islands. Good location above Palau. Clean, average sized-room. Bed & pillows very hard. The person on reception when I tried to check out did not seem to know what he was doing. Hard to find - even with a sat-nav. (Not a problem in April, but) very limited parking.
The view from the terrace is breathtaking, simply great and location is quite and relaxing! It is at most 3*** standard: Rooms are very dark and have no balcony but a hallway where people always pass in front of your room. Reception staff was not helpful and very uninformed about everything (e.g. transportation). Breakfast was terrible and only refilled on request, staff seemed not to care and you make you feel uncomfortable. Beach is far, approx. 20min walk down the hill.
good views too loud music around the pool for no reason, lack of pool bar or coffe facilities/snacks round the day.
Location - nice, convenient small town with choice of restaurants. Nice port.Great beach. Perfect place for a relaxing break at an affordable price. View from the restaurant is sublime. Mateo at reception way exceeded all our expectations in terms of customer service. This hotel has so much potential, and although fairly new - I doubt it will ever reach it. Situated a 10 - 15 minutes walk uphill from the town this hotel has the perfect space to be a relaxing haven overlooking the town below - however - the management try to extend the town into their hotel by playing loud music morning and night. NO soundproofing whatsoever in the bedrooms & furniture oversized for the space.
gret view from the top of the hill over the islands and the snow covered peaks of Corsica
Friendly staff at desk and restaurant. Very good value for the evening dinner with a good selection of food. Breakfast very good. Pool area was very clean and relaxing. Pillows in the bedrooms were were flat and hard. Only had one per person in the room. Better information on local amenities and activities.
Fantastic view from the upstairs balcony. Friendly helpful staff. Free bus to the beach every day. Good quality beds and very clean. Plentiful breakfast in mornings. Overpriced for what is effectively a 3 star hotel. Dated decor in general. Lots of noise in the mornings from firstly the cleaners (8am) and then by some builders using powertools below the hotel at around the same time. Food stuff, although plentiful was ok but not especially good enough quality for a hotel in this price category.
The location is good - only a 10 minute stroll to the town centre or the beach. Parking is easy and close by. English was spoken by a couple of staff, who weren't overly friendly but did help when asked. Basic (but adequate) room - no sockets for recharging mobile etc but aircon very efficient and having a full size fridge a bonus. The room was clean - apart from a large number of long black hairs on the floors, particularly in the bathroom - where they were also on the shower walls/curtain/base, floor mat, etc.
From the reception to the breakfast the next day all around excellent customer service.
Simple,clean, and ideally located near the port for our ferry departure to Corsica. The owner and family very accommodting and personable.
located 300 m away from port and the beach, welcoming personnel, the owner speaks good english and helped me with some things, nice breakfast with delicious cakes, free wifi in lobby, free LAN internet in the room (cable is provided), big bathroom, a/c works fine, fridge in the room, balcony with cord and clothespins... just nice friendly hotel!!!
The rooms seemed to have been renovated recently; they are quite clean. A refrigerator is very useful. The room size is decent for the price we paid. The location is not too bad; the beach is not far, and the town squre is even closer.
Easy parking on street, only short walk to ferry point to Bonifacio Lack of staff available in evening
Very friendly, attentive staff. Easy access to restaurants and beach area. Good selection of food at breakfast, especially for off-season. Central heat was not on, so heating was with the single AC/heat unit in the room, which made for a cold bathroom. I'm not a big fan of showers that are unenclosed at the base.
Nice welcome and good location from the city centre. Very good price for value.
The comfort of the room - we received a big room with 4 beds for the price of a double room; the modern facilities, arranged on an intelligent way, in the bathroom. The helpfulness of the staff - kind, giving very useful information without prior demand (maps, timetables), speaking English.
We had a very comfortable room, but I think its possible to get not such comfortable rooms, too! for tv freaks, they have nearly 1000 tv channels, and the situating of the hotel is very good. santa teresa is a nice place to stay, beach, centre and harbour only a short walk away
The service is a joke. Not a 5 Star hotel The rooms are very noisy. The food is not up to the standart. Very windy place too.
The position of your Hotel is fantastic, right on the beach, however you need a car. The rooms have a beautiful balcony to enjoy the view and the swimming pools are stunning but shallow. The standard of our room was not 5 star. There was a very strong and distinct smell of cigarette smoke in our room. Overall we thought it was too expensive for the standard of our room.
Perfect resort hotel for families with children. The outside pools are especially for children suitable whereas adults can enjoy the hotel own beach access which merges directly with the public sand beach of Capo Testa. The hotel own facilities and the rooms themselves are a bit old, but still everything worked. Dinner was overpriced for the quality with EUR 60.00 per person. Limited parking lots in peak times.
Nice location right at the beach, and free hotel transport to Santa theresa di Gallura. We found the majority of the staff kind of unfriendly.. It's a 5 star hotel, so they are very "correct" in a way, but they come out as hostile and unfriendly. Not good.
seaside location uncomfortable beds, mildewy smells
proximity of the beach several things: smoking area near the Bedroom, we can not open windows - Toilets are was not clean (yellow colors) :-( - Shower and Bathroom is not modern and does not correspond to a 5 stars hotel - there are not enough place in the car park
Location of the hotel, and service & preparation at the beach.
Very clean and nice room, nice and not crowded pool, for Italy good breakfast, 5 min. driving to the beaches, free parking a little bit expencive but this is a general sardinian problem, so in compare it´s ok
The hotel was lovely and clean and looking far superior than the others we saw in town. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very modern and close to the town centre which is a 5 minute walk away. Breakfast was usual continental and evening meal was available but we ate out every evening. I would definatley recommend this hotel and would not hesitate returning.
Very nice hotel close to the city center and the beach.Typical italian breakfast with croissant and cappuchino.Nice pool area and good parking facilities.
staff very helpful; a good pool and comfortable rooms. Breafast was fine and served outside on the terrace. Sadly there is a large building being constructed next door. It was not unduly noisy when we were there but does spoil the view over the pool from some of the rooms.
we were only there for 6 hours due to flight delay. that didn't keep them from charging us an extra E40 to share a bed with my 8 year old. other than that, they were very personable and helpful. see above
Decor, friendly staff and made to feel confortable. The location of Hotel was at the top of a slightly steep hill. Wonderful views made up for that, though.
Nice pool, modern and clean interior, close to beautiful town centre, short walk to town beach and short drive to several beaches outside town Pillows very big and high, wifi only in reception area, only breakfast available, building site next to hotel however not too loud
hotel was spotlessly clean, very nice decor, friendly staff The breakfast was certainly not 4* quality - extremely limited choice: 1 type of cheese, tinned fruit - the 'fresh' fruit did not look particularly fresh, white rolls or croissant - very disappointing. I didn't see the restaurant open at all in the evening. Although the rooms were clean the shower was the smallest imaginable - not enough room to turn round in.
Please write at least 15 words Hotel is good but definitely not luxurious. Also there is NO private beach and the hotel stays at least 1 mile uphill downtown.
Very friendly stuff and good location Hotel.
touring the islands! no :)
I arrived by ferry and, on my request, they picked me up by car at the port (we had no car). The location is definitely not so great (Palau itself is not very nice among other nearby places in Sardinia), a bit old fashioned. No fresh food for breakfast.
breakfast was brilliant, lots of choices and fresh croissants coffee at breakfast wasn't very nice, also we had an odd arrangement in the bedroom as the window/door looked out onto a blank wall. It was a triple
We were in the room with a veranda on the 4th floor. It was very nice with a view of the town and valley although it was too hazy to see the ocean. The room and bathroom were big and comfortable The stafff were helpfull and kind and spoke English. There is an incredible supermarket 5 minutes away (SuperPan) if you want picnic items or cold beverages for the room. The breakfast was good with the best made-to-order cofffee of our month long stay in Sardinia. I will stay here again when I return. No safe. We did not have a car so walking to Bosa Marina took 35 minutes instead of the advertised 20 minutes. A long way to haul beach gear although we did it. The buses or tourist train run infrequently to the beach.
Everything ok. Non
Helpful staff. Good accommodation. None.
Request a room with a view as the rooms higher up have wonderful views. The hotel staff are very helpful and the room was very clean. Overall a very nice stay.
Nice staff, very well situated in Palau (near the town center and the port). Very nice view of the sea form a private terrass. Room very clean. Nothing...
Very friendly staff, went out of their way to help us.
Service and location were great, breakfast was fresh, sea view was imasing. it is a bit old furnished, but with the great service it does not matter. It is the best hotel you can get for the price.
Excellent location for ferry access to Corsica. One international news channel available.
Good location to visit Bonifacio (Corsica), Ferry even within walking distance. Very friendly owner. Poor breakfast buffet, Breakfast room has a very simple look. No place to get together after returning back to hotel from dinner. Had to sit on the stormy corridor in front of the rooms with our friends to enjoy some red-wine ...
The friendly, helpful staff A bit out of town - pavements were not good for walking in.
De geranten van het hotel zijn een charmant koppel dat voor alles klaar staat om te bedienen of te helpen. Het hotel is gemakkelijk te vinden en alles is in de kamer is wat minder sjiek maar wel keurig in orde. Airco doet het ook heel erg goed. Geen slechte punten hier. Ik zou de regio gewoon niet aanraden.
Staff were very helpful and friendly
Nice and clean little hotel close to the ferry to Corsica if you know the way. Big supermarked just 150 meters away. A bit of a long walk to the center of the town. In spite of my booking "double-room for single-use" I got a single-room for the fuld amount, 65€ without breakfast, which is to much for this place. But ok, I stayed only one night because of I´d to reach the ferry next morning.
thw whole nice and safe feeling we had, it has a supermarket just in front of the hotel and the walk to the centre is quick and nice! everything was ok :) no breakfast though...
Nice spacious comfy room. Lack of sound proof.
It should be noted that this is a motel not a hotel which should be reflected in the description
Staff were very friendly. A great location catching the ferry to Corsica! N/A
The hotel is located close to the city center. Rooms are clean; however, lighting is less then romantic; the furnishings look a bit worn. Still ok, for a couple of days
Nice and quiet hotel within short walking distance from lovely Rena Bianca beach. Great personnel. Very friendly atmosphere.
very nice, cosy hotel, friendly atmosphere (Saridinian hospitality), great location (close to the beach and the city centre), tasty cappucino, possibility to park a car in near-by streets
We had an exellent and very comfortable room in this hotel. It also had a balcony with a view across the town. The owner of the hotel was most helpful. Altogether it was exceptionally good value for money.
Clean room, great bathroom. Very welcoming personnel make you feel home. Free hot drinks are available in the evening. And nice breakfast. Definitely great hotel no internet access
As it was originally a monastery it was an extremely unusual building. We were facinated by the layout and enjoyed exploring it. It was much further from Cagliari airport than I had realised.
God location and god price: The breakfast is very limited. Should be greatly improved.
that it was easy to get into the town and the local beach staff not overly friendly, breakfast very poor compared to other hotels, booked via booking .com, poor restaurant staff,charge to have mini bar in room, dormant building site on ther side of pool.
Good location, close to old town. Overpriced
The room was nice and clean. They have a computer with internet access for guests to use. All in al, the hotel has a nice atmosphere to it. Breakfest is not very consistent. It is not on the beach.
Peaceful, Closeness to habour No safe in room
Staff is very good. The hotel is clean. Breakfast is ok. Location is good. Price is ok. I liked staying there. Tv is very little, no russian channels on it :(. When I booked the hotel there was the information about wi-fi in the hotel, but during my stay in the hotel there was no wi-fi, it didn't function. Maybe they do not have it at all???
The location, nice friendly staff, very clean not much of a breakfast, hotel controled air con which worked well but only on at limited times of the day.
Friendly service. Beautiful building in quiet and interesting streets. Good location for access to port, ferry to Corsica. Santa Teresa itself was a pleasant stop.
very friendly staff, good location with an excellent breakfast
Friendly staff, conveniently situated close to center and beaches, all new, good value for money
Small family run hotel. Staff were very helpful with many suggestions and advice for things to do in the area.
nice big bed. no fresh coffee at breakfast - Italian breakfasts are based around the coffee so machine coffee was disappointing.
We felt very at ease at this hotel - we stayed for one night at the start of our holiday and it was a good experience which we feel is crucial for the start of a holiday. Good generous breakfast too. We did not like the co;our of the paint in the bedrooms - we would have prefered something less bright!
Easy to find and to park outside. Easy walk into town, the port or the beach. Clean comfortable room.
