Great location right in the harbour. High quality rooms and fittings. Nice breakfast on the open terrace. Easy to get to (the ferries are every 20 mins) Tip - don't take your car accross to Maddalena, it costs an extra €20 and its difficult to park if you're staying in this hotel....if you want to tour the islands rent a scooter when you get there. Nothing
High quality accomodation in the downtown, superb beaches arround, a lot of excellent restaurants in the city. A little bit noicy on the terrace as it is just on the road and in front of the busy port, but over the time you feel it as a part of life.
Great location, extremely helpful staff, excellent breakfast, modern rooms No private parking, which is a problem given the central location. Rooms could be a big bigger.
Decoration of the room, the ocen view. Mattress was nor soft enough
The bed was too hard
Friendly staff, helped us with information about La Madalena and car rental. It's easy to park your car in the street in front of the hotel - very important when visiting Sardinia, since it's extremely difficult to get around without a car. Breakfast was very good. The room was pretty comfortable, and everything is brand new. Although it's in front of the pier for ferries to/from Palau, the location is not the ideal one if you plan to visit beaches on the main island of Sardinia. Roads from Palau are winding and it takes long to come and go, not to mention the costs of taking the ferry every day. I would recommend it for one or two nights only, just the time to see the beaches on La Madalena islands.
hotel design, excellent coffee, very friendly staff, great place for young single trendy - not for family room was quite a small, better variety for breakfast, no car park (off season is no problem to find a spot cross the strat, otherwise...?)
Proximity to the sea and the quality of the rooms no
Excellent room, completely renovated at high modern standard ( quality furnitures, elegant bathroom, flat screen and free internet connection). Staff friendly and helpfull. Brillant value for money. Really nothing, it has been an excellent holiday
Excellent location overlooking the port, wonderful view from breakfast terrace, the rooms were all beautifully furnished and equipped especially the bathrooms with spacious shower area, convenient free public parking and excellent breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit available, great restaurants in vicinity. We had problems with the air con system, it was very noisy at night compared to other hotels that we have stayed in. Poor recommendation from hotel for restaurant on the first night.
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 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
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.
Close to the port, the city center, and the ferry.
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.
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 amability of the personal trying to solve any problem. the views of the room
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Comfortable, clean, good pool, frinedly staff. We enjoyed our stay Quite a walk from the town centre.
gret view from the top of the hill over the islands and the snow covered peaks of Corsica
good views too loud music around the pool for no reason, lack of pool bar or coffe facilities/snacks round the day.
The views from the room were excellent over the harbour and the sound between the island and the mainland. The room was spacious with two balconies, and the bathroom was recently refurbished to a good standard.The position of the hotel near the town was also good, within easy walking distance. The air conditioning did not work and this made it rather uncomfortable as the temperatures were in the mid 30s C in the day and not much less at night. However, we were given a small reduction in the cost We felt that the furniture was a bit spartan and there were no chairs in either of the balconies so we could not really make the best use of them. The food in the restaurant was also quite basic, mostly from machines with a very limited range of fresh items. Although being refurbished it did have some way to go before we would be able to recommend it.
Large and light room with a spacious balcony with a splendid view of the ocean. breakfast could be better.
Everything ok. Non
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
Very friendly staff, went out of their way to help us.
Helpful staff. Good accommodation. None.
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.
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.
touring the islands! no :)
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...
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.
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.
location the bed unconfortable, old furniture and staff at reception not so willing to please and friendly to the customers. Expensive compared to the rest of accomodations/service level in Sardinia.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I didn't speak much Italian, but they were all pretty fluent in English and were very helpful giving directions and recommendations.
Location was perfect! 15 min walk to town and a 15 min drive to a beautiful beach. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.
Good location. Clean & spacious rooms. Very quiet. To charge extra for an Internet connection in a 4-Star hotel is rather small-minded and spoils the overall good impression of the hotel.
Wonderful, amazing, excellent place. Very nice people and service. The rooms are very neat. The hotel is far from the center. It is difficult to get there if you have no car.
Friendly & helpful staff, clean & comfortable hotel. Good location for exploring the islands (with a car) and walking distance to town (15 mins).
Nice new Hotel close to beach + town. You need a form of transport (car,scooter,motor-bike), brackfast is ok but not "outstanding"
Very quiet place
Very clean, spacy rooms. Nice breakfast for Italian standards. Many facilities and children friendly. Very friendly staff. During our stay it was quite empty (end of July), not a lot of staff either. No guests/staff at the bar, pool etc. Therefor did not give a lot of character and we only stayed 2 days.
The rooms were new, cleen and quiet. The breakfast was quite poor, for bread, only toast bread was available without a toaster. It was misleading that they have stated the distance to be 150 meteres to the beach since it was at least double of that. From good beaches it is quite far, without a car it takes 40-50 minutes to get to there by bus. With car it is about 15 minutes.
Nice cozy room, good swimming pool The breakfast was not so good for 3 stars, for example juice was mixed with water or syrop. We have also tried their pizza and past for evening snack, it was not very good.
The room was always impecably clean. The location is very convenient to visit different places in Sardegna. However, having a car is mandatory if you want to sleep in this hotel. The front-desk staff is very nice and helpful. When you get to San Pasquale, it's not very easy to find the hotel (just turn left after the main square), but a sign would help. The breakfast was good, but not very varied. The internet (which is not free, though not very expensive) was not always working well.
The triple bed room was of acceptable size, the outdoor pool was nice and clean. The receptionist was outstanding friendly. The bathroom was very small, the beds extremely hard, the staff - with exeption of the receptionist - invisible. The parking opportunity was doubtful, the hotel in that area only looked half-finished. I have no idea who got the idea to plant this **** hotel in the middle of nowhere, 10 miles from the nearest town.
Quality of room; availability of sports equipment - table tennis, tennis.
We discovered Borgo Saraceno last year, and we decided to come back this year. It is the perfect place for a great and relaxing holiday. Excellent staff, great location, we love it!
Comfortable bed, great view of the pool and surrounds, quiet, shuttle service to beach, food in restaurant ok. Possibly could be over run with kids because of apartment accommodation but the 'entertainment coordinators' did their best to keep them occupied with activities. Remote with no other restaurants in the actual hillside town you need to drive to other villages.
The indoor pool was off limits for children under 14. My children were told that the hotel sports ground did not belong to the hotel and could not be used. It was, however used by hotel staff daily.
Staff very nice. Very calm location. Clean and overall a very pleasant place.
The reception staff was very helpful. Even German and English TV in the room, was nice on the day that it rained. Near the hotel was a very nice local restauant with great food. The hotel is situated in a mountain village and not near the coast as it is situated on google earth. You need a car to get to the hotel and the beach. As we stayed in the last week of the season in the hotel, breakfast was limited. Even bread was not always available.
The abiance and the staff who were delightful It is well away from beaches,but we did know that.
Clean room, helpful staff. More Sky channels (bbc World etc) would have been useful!
The room was small, there was no space for two small suitcases. The door opened directly into the room, and you could fall directly into the bed (no little corridor at the entrance or something like that). The breakfast was not extremely exciting. Compared to other Sardinian hotels we visited, we were not very happy for the value for money.
