The Hotel had 50% good staff and 50% poor Staff were not always professional and helpful
Very quiet location, excellent sized rooms with balcony, good breakfasts and extremely helpful staff Need to have a car to go to the city center and anywhere else as public transports are not plenty around the island
The hotel is really nice and very well kept. Front Desk staff are very friendly and helpful. The welcome cookie is a nice idea! The pool and jacuzzi are great and the seating around the pool is great for relaxing.
The Hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, a good value for money, the cookies on the arrival, parking space. The breakfast recepcionist didn't speak anything but Italian, which i think is really bad when you work in a Hotel. We paid for a room with view, and the only possible view from the Hotel is the highway...
the swimming pool, gakuzzi, the matress and the pillows the personel
We stayed in July, relaxing holiday, pool large, plenty of sunbeds, staff were friendly and helpful. Fabulous beaches. Hotel was very clean. A very relaxing holiday, Food of a high standard however too much seafood for my family. No snack bar for lunch. You need to hire a car.
The pool The food was awful - frozen food from cheap supermarket is not what you expect in Italy!!! What made us leave the hotle was the fluorescent liquid supposed to be fruit juice served in plastic disposable cup for breakfast...
clean accomodation, friendly staff ,excellent restaurant i didnot like the cold breakfast although you were offered scrambled eggs a very small amount, and for two people they allowed 3 slices of cheese 3 slices of salami and 3 slices of ham i do not eat meat, no toaster whats the point of having jam etc, swimming pool was freezing
Their meal was excellent. Bath room is not clean.
Pretty unwelcoming reception staff. Hotel in general appeared to need major refurbishment. Our first room was very noisy - dance music coming from the bar below, which, bizarrely seemed to be full of middle aged people. Toilettries bag was crawling with ants by the first morning. Moved to a quieter room which was dark and uncomfortable. Taxis outrageous price - 90€ for 15km journey!!
Found the front desk personnel very helpful and honest. The pool was beautiful and a very good size. There was an area to do laps and more shallow areas for all ages of children to play. We were 2 females and the hotel was more geared for families.
The swimming pool is really good, the food is excellent, animation group very amusing. I also liked the outdoor fitness facilities and the beautiful garden. There are no shops and banks in the vicinity, but we were aware about that. What we didn't know was that for all the services at the hotel you can only pa by hotel card, which by the way is really practical, but you can only deposit cash as credit on your card. The customers should be notified about that on your website, so that they can bring enough cash. The nearest atm machine is 4km away.
Nice pool, great view Reception staff, poor breakfast, not easy to access unless you have a car, no service = food available unless lunch or dinner hours no information given about this before hand, no brieffing on available services when arrival or available in the room, when leaving they charge you extra for using the pool! Which naturally was not mentioned anywhere beforehand, hence definately not a 4 star hotel
Very basic hotel for the price. Not value for money Price
the location and the pool did not replace bath wash, and the breakfast was not amazing
Very quiet hotel with plenty of space around the large outdoor pool The restaurant was slightly disappointing and the lack of both a hotel bar and proper poolside bar.
staff was very helpful and kind I think you shouldn't lye that you beach is only in 700 metres from hotel, because there is no beach!!!! and hotel's location is not good everything is too far. Breakfast was the worst, I have never had such a bad experience. Dinner was so-so, choice was poor
Amazing staff, always ready to help with any request. An full breakfast buffet which is pretty rare these days. Very clean and attention to detail. Totally recommend this place for a short break with kids. Not the cheapest of places but then again you are on Costa Esmeralda!
There is Spacious room for staying my family (5 persons). And the hotel's site is wide, so we played in the pool and large garden with my kids every day. Friendly staff talked to me around the hotel, about good beach, nice restaurants etc. It was very helpfull. So, We could go several good beachs near the hotel . Everyday the room was cleaned up. And we could sleap on the clean sheets. We want to stay again. Sewage smell in the bus room.
hotel pool and surroundings were lovely
the pool being asked for 50 euro to stay few hours longer tan official checking out time
Very friendly staff. The best reception briefing on the local area and its attractions we have ever had. Food was good and service excellent. Super location near to attractive estuary. Swimmers pool and decent paddling pool. A good 9 out of 10. Hotel is not a beach centred venue but does provide a free shuttle bus to the main local resort. Great beaches nearby though if you have a car. Main pool was deep almost everywhere, which might put some people off
staff, rooms, pool, location
Best food in the world!!
The atmosphere, the location, the view, Daniel the Manager and the friendliness of the people! The road to´the hotel is pretty difficult to reach.
The location was idyllic, the room very comfortable and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Spa facilities were limited as out of season. The food was excellent although a little expensive. The 2km dirt track to the hotel became a chore. Although advertised as heated, the pool was freezing and therefore we were unable to swim which was disappointing.
Wonderful location and spa facilities. Staff were excellent, so friendly, cheerful and helpful. Room (junior suite) although small had 2 lovely terraces with magnificent views and 2 bathrooms! Restaurant menu was simple but food was very good and together with the lounge area had a lovely atmosphere. A perfect place for a relaxing break...feels more like a house party than a hotel.
Food was good and definitely worth spending the extra for half board. Good location for family retreat but not for friends fun. Language barrier is a big minus: Italian is a must for residents, as English lead to many misinterpretations. Cannigione is a small very quiet town, with no cash ATM (!) and you need a car to discover the region.
Very nice hotel, excellent design and quality! Very good!!! Very polite and professional staff. Staff was confused and did not know standard questions about internet etc. Internet was too expensive and should be 1) included in the room rate, 2) Wireless, and 3) maximum cost 10 € per night extra. Other, older hotels we visited in Sardinia during our holliday had already done this. Facilities were closed, without any information prior to checkin.
The staff were friendly and the rooms were modern and clean. The beach was nearby and within easy walking distance. The pool is great. There wasn't much to do in the hotel on days when it rained. They have WiFi but no computers with internet access.
Staff were very friendly and the room was clean. No facilities available. The wellness centre wasn't open, the jacuzzi was closed, our TV didn't work and wasn't fixed all week, and I think we were given a standard room rather than a superior.
Very nice pool and garden area Breakfast was disappointing given the rest of the hotel.
Hotel Baja is a contemporary style hotel which has recently had a refit and hence the decor and fittings are highly modern, clean etc. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food in the hotel was very good and we had excellent service in the hotel. If you are looking for a hotel as a base to explore the north eastern part of sardinia I would recommend hotel Baja. The town also has a number of good restaurants as well.
Good location and a nice pool There were severla things advertised which were not available. There was no wireless internet and the Spa was closed for refurbishment.
Clean, good reception staff and manager.... Beds and pillows were ridiculously hard and uncomfortable! Male hotel staff are too forward in asking English women to join them....for drinks, massages etc!!
The pool, how clean the place was, the little spa, the toilets very clean. The advert says 200 metres from the beach. This is just a bit of sand the beach is ac train ride away. They do not even serve fresh fuit juice at the beach bar, they have the same menu everday and the fish of the day was the same everyday. We asked for an ashtray when at the indoor bar, where there was no staff,so asked at reception and were told "get it yourself from the pool staff outside not a
Reception and general friendliness was excellent. Rooms were clean and there was a good attitude by most staff. Breakfast - my Italian is reasonable but the guy serving never got our order correct. All three mornings, he was hopeless. Breakfast is supposed to start at 7.30 but bread didn't arrive til 8 on the one occasion we needed to be early.
I liked the surrounding landscape (mountains), the swimming pool and the fact that it was very close to some very nice beaches in the Costa Smeralda I didn't think it was a proper 4-star hotel. The room has got the standard, i thought. It felt more like a 3-star. Having said that, the hotl had a warm feeling and was good value for money given it was half-board (the food was good, by the way).
friendly helpful staff; well located for walk into town/restaurants, free parking difficult to find; the hotel smelt of a mixture of tobacco smoke and air freshener, neither very nice
The mould in the mini bar, the musty old smell, the general cleanliness, the distance from the centre
The man at the fron desk was very helpful
The swimming pool area and proximity to the sea was excellent.
Proximity to town. Photo makes it look much better than it does when you arrive, because it is on a small side street adjacent other buildings.
Very good location to visit places and beaches of Costa Smeralda. Free parking. None.
nothing much to like, very ordinary and basic hotel we had room on the second flor with no view ( view to the wall of other side of hotel and part of swimingpool), there was no changeing of towels,
- nice location - none
Impeccably clean rooms, airy and cool. Nice swimming pool and good location - within 15 to 20 minute drive to fantastic beaches
Plenty of space in the hotelroom. The toilet had a bad smell
Convenient for my stay in the town of Azachina en route to the ferry for Corsica
Clean room. Good breakfast.Pleasant town. Good public transport service. Hotel is adjacent to stone masons yard where work starts at about 8am during the week. The noise is not continuous but it can be noisy.
The staff were very courteous and helpful. The hotel was ideally located for visiting the region's pre-historic sites, Palau, Maddelena and Costa Smeralda.
the breakfast was good and the pool was nice too. My friend left some things in her room and the staff were kind enough to post them all the way back to England. We had a room for 3 and it was huge with a big balcony the balcony door was hard to use, but this is only a minor point
Being closeby the main tourist attractions in Costa Smeralda was very nice. Free parking. Old hotel. Hotel standards do not match the qualification of 3 stars but rather 2 stars. Expensive given these standards.
pool and staff who were very obliging restaurant was a bit expensive and a table d'hote for residents may result in more people taking dinner there.
Staff were lovely and very welcoming. Our room was comfortable and well cleaned everyday. Large buffet spread everyday for breakfast which was excellent. Our flight home was in the evening and the hotel allowed us to have the use of the room for the day which was a huge help.
The staff were excellent and the food in the restaurant was superb. Probably the best in the village. A small hotel that made you feel at home and very welcome. Perfect for a quiet get away. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time which was a nice surprise. The room was very clean and the staff respected our privacy. If i return to Sardinia I would re book the same hotel again
The hotel and staff were a very pleasant surprise. We were given our choice of rooms and selected a 2-bedroom suite for the price of a 1-bedroom double. The suite is usually reserved for families as it has direct access to the swimming pool. Because it was off-season, the room was not in demand and they offered it to us with no increase in rate. In fact, we stayed 2 nights because of the hotel quality and location The hotel restaurant is the best in town offering quality meals and wines. We recommend this hotel to everyone. No.
Very friendly staff and a *great "italian style" breakfast*. Very good value for money in a location that's 15 minutes by car from all the best seashores. One over four night was a bit noisy and the cause was some music put by the young workers downstairs. It's a pity because otherwise it would have been 100% satisfaction.
A very friendly and family run hotel. Ideally situated for exploring the area. Sharing the pool with the extended family!
The room and the staff were lovely, as was the breakfast. Hard pillows.
LOvely spacious room opening out onto the pool. Great breakfast.
Quiet with very good restaurant Very small bedroom
Pool was dirty
great hotel. We felt at home when we walked in the door and the staff were all excellent from front desk to maid to restaurant staff. Also, lovely view. Great location too for anyone flying out
Wish to stay longer not just 1 night. Great room, food, wine, pool, staff, design...very close to airport. There should be another anotherone somewhere just on the beach
Swimming pool, restaurant, room, service, staff, luxury, cleaness, friendlyness no
The whole experience although only for one night was superb. We chose it because of proximity to the airport for an early morning flight but much appreciated the high standard of the restaurant, the comfort of the rooms and the smart pool and sun terrace. The staff were extremely helpful. And it represented excellent value for money No
Very modern, walking distance from airport, Sky TV, good breakfast
The hotel was very modern in design and facilities. Very comfortable
Great restaurant !!, easy access to the airport, friendly staff only relevant as airport hotel
The best hotel out of the 100 or so I have stayed in the past 2 years. Restaurant has amazing chef: almost the only hotel restaurant I would completely recommend. Free fast internet in all rooms, clean, nice pool, fitness centre, sauna, superb staff (allowed an 8pm checkout for no extra charge, and lots of other help), stylish, and has only been built 3 months ago. So good, we are making a trip to go back to the Jazz Hotel.
weather prices of food and beaverages
The Poltu Quatu complex and setting is outstanding. It is a joy to stay there this time of the year if you want a quiet relaxing time.
Large appartment with well equipped kitchenette. Nice view from the terasse, beautiful location and quiet area. Furnitures were very basic and in general the interior were not at all 5 star.
The beach is far and very bad!
I thought the location was very beautiful, the wait staff was extremely friendly I feel this should be only 4 star hotel-they skimped on the details-has the potential of being 5 star but not quite there.
The location of the Melia Poltu Quatu is stunning, set in a beautiful natural harbour. On entering the hotel, the splendour of the location is transported inside with the elegant reception, pool, and restaurant areas. The atmosphere was pleasant, yet relaxing and was perfect for the break we were looking for, with a couple of shops, bars and restaurants just outside to browse around. Nothing at all, except I was not there long enough
Nice location. Nice and clean rooms. Really for people who are well off. a bit too expensive for my taste (Bottle of water 25cl = 7 EUR) but I guess that goes with the Costa Smeralda
Location Not free car park. Maintenace of room facilities.
Quite and service
The proximity to the marina
Nice and spacious room, bathroom, nice buffet, the pool is nice and clean with its bar restaurant, large resort, good destination for relaxing. A nice hotel for familly and kids. Almost only italian channels, no international channels (one euronews, one german and one spanish). In the minibar, ONLY bottles of water...4 stars hotel. Almost 10 to 15 minutes from the center of Olbia, 20 euros each way. The spa and the fitness aeara do not belong to the hotel, it's private, so the access to the gym is not for free and it's not open everyday!!! Be careful. Almost 30 minutes to reach Porto Cervo, 100 Euros by taxi each way.
Everything is wonderfull! Room, breakfast, viewside...
There wa few issues with our room, such as electrical problem & friendliness of the hotel staff at the beginning, however, by day two everything just worked out fine and we had a good time.
rooms were clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was good and facilities were good very very difficult to find when driving and its so big that its like a mze
The staff were warm and friendly. Breakfast was really nice but take your own teabag if you need that cuppa to start your day. Try the spa, it's absolutely worth every euro. Excellent restaurants within very short walking distance and the streetscene in the evening is really laid back with most shops / boutiques opening late. The hotel has a rooftop terrace, which is very comfortable, but be careful as the sun gets very hot up there. It's not a criticism by any means, but the rooftop terrace would benefit from a refreshing shower and a little more shade so you could enjoy the afternoon sun. Sadly, by next year this hotel will have become extremely popular and we won't be able to get a room at such relatively short notice again.
Cleaningness, size and comfort of the room and bathroom. Perfect location, very central. Nice view on the roof top.
All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, well maintained and had a flat screen tv with a wide range of channels available. The sun deck on the roof was also great for the morning. The breakfast was also good. Difficult to unload and reload car at check in and check out because of hotel location on a narrow street. The flat screen tv needed to be larger.
Excellent staff, parking, terrace, all is clean and new, location - city center, I would visit this hotel again
Great location and service!
panoramic view, location, clean rooms, breakfast buffet
The hotel was lovely and comfortable and staff very friendly Great view from roof terrace No
This hotel was the best hotel i have ever stayed at, the hotel was beautiful the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpfull. Definently the best hotel in sardinia!
The room we stayed have a great view of old town and port of Olbia. Location was perfect for hanging around.
The reception staff were all great. So friendly, so helpful and loads of great advice on making the most of Olbia. The room was gorgeous and clean and beautifully decorated. The upstairs roof terrace had an amazing panoramic view and the fact that the spa (though not used used) was available and so reasonable was an absolute bonus. The breakfast staff were truly rude - a shame as they were the last thing we came across before leaving and after such a great stay previously. This applied not so much to the waiting staff but those setting up the buffet and in the kitchen. We also witnessed a barely concealed outburst between two of them. Unecessary at 7 in the morning.
We enjoyed the outside spaces, especially the pool areas as they were very scenic and well serviced. We found that although the hotel was good, it was not quite worth the money charged.
excellent very supportive Staff, Quiteness, Design of hotel, close to beautifull Porto Cervo 400 meters from beach ( 5-10 minute walk ), expensive ( size rooms versus $$$$$$$$$$$$ )
Great swimming pools, decent beach, good breakfasts, very friendly service at reception. Lunch menu is overpriced. The beach is about 10 minutes walk from the hotel and you have to cross a public parking lot.
The location and garden/pool area Hard bed
the swimming pool and the beach
The location, grounds and pools were superb. The ability to find a secluded sunny spot right next to a pool was fantastic, also the short walk to the beach was great. The decor of the hotel was wonderful, it was an oasis of quiet. The service from reception and bar staff was also very good. The service in the restaurant was haphazard - Fawlty Towers came to mind. It would have helped to have clearer pricing on the menus, we were not sure of the cost of the daily menu, which turned out to be the same as the a la carte menu. Also the pillows were made of hollowfibre and very uncomfortable.
the room, the service be4 hand, the food range could be better, as could the beach facilities, we could do away with all the peddlers of rubbish on the private beaches, they could have catered better be4 hand for celaics, otherwise, the general space was large n expansive, the restaurants, only 3.5 star quality food and service was as amenable as possible, but not what i m used to, which is almost military like precision for my meals. otherwise the hotel did try, but trying is not good enough these daus. the beach access was not immediate, the location, not perfect, n the facade needs a re work of paint, if it truly wants to have a 5 star standard, the concierge facilities should be more on the ball, eg like all starwood n relais n chateux properties, as an italian comparison, pronto, prestissimo, and tutto complaint!
The view was breath taking and every new day another beautiful picture was painted during the breakfast session. The staff was super friendly and very service oriented. The restaurant was really among the top restaurants, every day a different menu with fresh top ingredients. This hotel is rather a 5 than a 4 star hotel. I hope to visit them again.
The hotel is really top. Perfectly situated on a mountain with perfect view over Cala di Volpe. The hotel is even better than the Cala di Volpe Hotel. Perfect place for staying at Costa Smeralda. Absolutely super was the for free included shuttle service to the beach, where also beds and umbrellas are reserved for hotel guests. Nice pool, nicely designed room with balcony. The breakfast was good for Italy, however a small room for improvement from a German perspective.
Nice view. Very quiet. Good restaurant & bar. Very nice beach. Quite isolated. 20-30 min. to the beach with an 8 seat van on a dusty road. Nothing in walking distance - a car is a must.
Beautifull rooms and a free shutlle service to the beach. I was on business and it does not cater to the business traveller.
The genuine personal care and attention given to all guests by all the staff was outstanding. The setting was superb and the meals were very good. We shall certainly stay at this hotel again. We enjoyed it and did not have anything to dislike about our experience.
The friendliness of the man who controlled the beach was exceptional A rat that ran through the outside bar area.....
The hotel is lovely! It has a great location but you should definitely hire a car in sardinia! the room was really cosy and cute and the staff was great! It is a great choice of hotel in sardinia and we will definitely come back! Nothing
Amazing staff. Excelent welcome cocktail. Will return for sure. A little bit more variety on the breakast.
Beautiful views from the restaurant terrace Very overpriced, not even remotely in the same league as the Cala di Volpe mentioned in another review
Frendly and very clean. Good breakfast buffet. nothing
The hotel was exquisite-- it felt so luxurious and well-designed. It was also conveniently located to the town centre and so it was easy to walk to the main street as well as get to the train station or buses on foot. The showers in the rooms were amazing and the breakfast was delicious. Wish it had a swimming pool as there are no beaches in walking distance!
The room layout and furniture
Excellent position and very friendly and helpful reception staff
Everything! We were delighted with every aspect of this hotel, the staff being especially attentive and helpful. There was nothing we did not like - even the fact that a large choir caused the breakfast room to overflow made our visit even more interesting and enjoyable
La cortesia e disponibilità della segretaria di ricevimento (che ci ha gentilmente offerto la consumazione dal frigobar). La posizione centrale che ti consente di raggiungere le vie dello shopping a piedi. Al nostro arrivo, pur avendo richiesto una camera a letti separati ci viene assegnata una matrimoniale ma son riusciti nel giro di pochi minuti a cambiarci camera. Le camere sono molto piccole, non prevedono una coperta, i doppi cuscini nè l'accensione/spegnimento autonomo dell'aria condizionata (che viene regolata dal personale di ricevimento) che la notte è stata rumorosissima: si azionava ogni 5 minuti. I prodotti per il bagno sono essenziali (solo doccia/shampoo, saponette e cuffia). Non forniscono vanity set (con cottonfioc), lucidascarpe nè set cucito o crema corpo. Anche la colazione era essenziale con un buffet tutt'altro che ricco e che alle 9.20 del mattino presentava già i vassoi vuoti (che non sono stati rimpiazzati).
It's close to the city centre, has a friendly staff, the accomodation is nice and very clean.
Brand new hotel, multi-lingual staff, very friendly and helpful, good breakfast, mini bar prices are cheaper than the hotel bar :-), good location just a detail: too less storage room particularly in the bathroom (shelves, towel holder, ...)
New toilet and shower. Tv was way to small
Impressive in all aspects especially the staff. Staff were friendly, spoke good English and were very helpful. Room was modern, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. Hotel central to town centre where there was plenty of bars, restaurants & shops. I will return to this hotel when next in sardinia
Very pleasant staff to greet you on arrival.Very central to restaurants,bars etc.Near to the airport so you could stay like we did just for 1 night after a flight.Very delicious generous breakfast. Perhaps a bit noisy,but due to the location to be expected.
Fabulous Location, Very friendly staff, amazing buffet breakfast, great rooms which are very nicely appointed and excellent value for money
The staff is very friendly and kind. The location is good. The room is small. The shower curtain was not fit.
we had a room overlooking the main street and did not here any voices or noise. impressive soundproofing
The friendliness of the staff and the clean newly renovated decor of the hotel. It was also ina very convenient location either for the town and restaurants or for the beach and was only 10 mins from the airport. The breakfast was a continental style breakfast and well presented but there was nothing savoury which for me would have enhanced the options for breakfast.
The hotel is located right on the main street in the center of Olbia which was pretty convenient when looking for a place to eat late in the evening. We were only staying for one night to catch a flight early in the morning and they were pretty flexible with providing us with some breakfast before 7am. It is not possible to park directly on the hotel street and parking in the center is not easy to find.
Excellent position, friendly service, nice breakfast Room outlook disappointing
Friendly staff The air filters need to be cleaned in the air conditioning units. The filter in room 105 looks as if it has never been cleaned and was full of stuff.
very nice room and welcoming staff!
