Colonna Pevero Hotel5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Went here on holiday with a friend. Upon arrival we got a welcome drink, Prosecco, and after were shown to a very nice room, with separate beds as requested, and sea view. Both breakfast and lunch were included and involved a buffet with lots of choice as well as fresh cooked food. The dinner was nice, but nothing out of the ordinary, whereas the prizes were! Drinks are expensive, €7 for a bottle of water, €10 for a glass of wine. There are several less expensive good restaurants in the neighbourhood, such as Trattoria da Patrizia and Gastronomia Belvedere. At the pool we ordered a fruit punch (consisting of fresh seasonal fruit), €16 each!, and received what tasted like grapefruit juice with loads of ice cubes. However, after complaining they brought us another fruit drink with fresh pressed summer fruits.
There are many positives to Colonna Pevero, I don't like being negative, however there were a few for the money you pay for your stay. I really wanted to love the hotel the minute I saw it- it's set in beautiful grounds and the pools and restaurants are gorgeous. The gallery is also beautiful with some lovely contemporary art and the lobby is modern and fresh. We stayed on a full board basis for a weekend stay and I must say that food was great, particularly lunch and dinner. The waiting staff were generally, kind and attentive. Some members of staff, however, were pretty miserable to the point where it was a little uncomfortable. For the price paid I expected staff to show a little more decorum. The room was a little small and the decor very dated and tired, I was disappointed when I'd come from the lobby to the room. The shower was equally dated, and the water pressure was non existent. We had the weekend stay as a deal with welcome drinks also, which were not given upon arrival to the hotel. My partner also revealed that he requested a bottle of bubbly or wine to be placed in the hotel room as we were celebrating our anniversary for the weekend- this was completely ignored and no apology given. I love Sardinia and I liked many aspects of the hotel, but for the money you pay and the fact that the hotel is marketed as luxury, I felt it was pretty poor. I frequently visit Sardinia and have stayed in a variety of hotels around Porto Cervo, but as much as I want to love Colonna Pevero, I was pretty disappointed compared to other places I have stayed.
Nice hotel for a short vacation, a bit boring for longer staying so strongly recommend to rent a car for travelling moreover it's quite distant from marina in Porto Cervo. We are not really happy with the beach, since it's necessary to cross parking are to reach it and it's tiny. in addition the view was killed by the huge yacht across the bay. Also would like to note a poor equipped fitness studio.
Everything about this hotel is well thought out, particularly the pool area. There's one large swimming pool, with a series of smaller pools with planting around them. There are plenty of secluded spots. A short walk out of the hotel grounds takes you to the beach. All areas of the hotel are very clean, beautifully laundered bed sheets are changed daily. The staff are really good, the perfect blend between professional efficiency and friendliness. Breakfast is fantastic, really good choice. On the negative side, all extras are very expensive. We discovered that the whole area is very over priced. A taxi into Porto Cervo costs 20 euro, for a 3km trip. There is a courtesy bus from the hotel but the timings aren't very frequent or convenient. We ate at the hotel on our first night, 2 unmemorable courses and the least expensive bottle of wine, total cost 180 euros. I felt that there could have been more in the way of complimentary extras, for instance, one meagre half litre bottle of water is placed in the room at turndown service. There is no complimentary water around the pool area. A cup of coffee is 5 euros, glass of wine 10. There was one other night when we decided to eat in the hotel. There are two restaurants, one a la carte, the other a fixed price for 4 courses. We were told that there was no room in the fixed price restaurant so ended up spending another almost 200 euros for 2 courses in the a la carte. We did realise that we were in a very expensive area, restaurants in Porto Cervo are very costly - e.g. 59 euros for a sirloin steak, 15 euros for a glass of wine. All very well if you are an owner of one of the multi million pound yachts moored up. We didn't like Porto Cervo at all, an artificial, manufactured sort of place.
The best hotel in Porto Cervo if you are not looking to spend a fortune for good quality luxury holiday. Use public beaches in nearby areas - the Piccolo Pevero beach is not worth your time, although, if you don't care about the beach too much, the poolside is excellent.
We hadn't originally booked to stay at the CP but we weren't enjoying our stay in Baia down the road and wanted to finish our honeymoon in style having spent the first half in Ravello and Sorrento on the Amalfi coast. It ended up being a great decision to switch over to Porto Cervo. From the word go the Colonna Pevero oozes class, it's only 10 years old, relatively new for a hotel. We had a basic room but it was perfect, the balcony over looked the sea and was ideal for a pre meal drink to take in the views. The rooms are modern and have everything you need, nice touches include a bottle of water, towel changes and chocolates at turn down and the smart TV doubling as a mirror, not to mention the pillow menu. The breakfast was the best we had out of our 4 hotels on our trip, everything you can ask for..omelettes on request! Gym has everything you need to burn off the breakfast. The free shuttle only runs 4 times to Porto Cervo, but gave us a 3 hour window to explore the marina and bars (it isn't as expensive as everyone makes out), just choose wisely. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurants, they were quite expensive, as were all the hotel chargeables. But there are restaurants within walking distance to the hotel, we ate at Dante and Il Polcino, both very good and reasonably pricing. Also managed to sneak a cheeky 9 holes in at the Perevo golf club, the hotel has a discounted rate. Taxis anywhere cost a minimum of 20 euros which is steep for short trips to Porto Cervo or the Golf course. The highlight is definitely the pool area, towels provided and extremely comfy loungers, we are in early September but there was never a shortage. There are 5 private pools, the main one the only swimmable one, the other 5 are just wallowing areas, but it's a nice touch and you can vary your sunbathing spot each day. Highly recommend this hotel, the negative reviews are based on minor things. The staff were top class for us.
We visited Colonna Pevero as part of a work trip with 15 other couples. From the moment we arrived, attention to detail was immaculate. Staff were professional and friendly with no request being too much. Beautiful ocean views from the rooms, allowing you to watch the million dollar yachts dock for the night. The breakfast buffet was really something special, the chef made the most delicious omelette and all the staff make amazing coffee! Close to the local town of Porto Cervo; there is plenty to do for people who enjoying shopping, eating and drinking and tours into local villages can be arranged. An unforgettable stay, we sincerely hope to be back one day!!
Colonna Pevero Hotel This is my second time in Sardegna and my first at Costa Smeralda. When I got advice from Italian friends which hotel to choose, they told me to go to Cala di Volpe or Pevero. The first one was fully booked and then I went to the second one. The reality is that there are other Pevero(s) and other Colonna (s). I ended up at the Colonna Pevero thinking I made the right choice. I Booked a Deluxe Vista Mare with a terrace view to the sea, 100% paid In advance, as per the hotel request! When I arrived, I was given a room - just a room - not a separate space from the room itself - very limited space; the terrace had a view to the sea where there were more tiles than sea. The hotel itself is beautiful, seems new and well maintained. The service, though, is a disgrace. The front desk is unprepared and don't have the level of a five star hotel. The minimum you would ask seemed an impossible task. As an example, I was expecting a rental moto which came on time to give me the motorbike, looked for me at the reception desk and the hotel said I was not in the hotel. Confusion with my name! They called someone else in the hotel with my same family name who said they were not waiting a motorcycle and the hotel send the person away without checking if there was possibly another person with the same name at the hotel. I asked the same front desk to call the transfer to the airport and anticipate the pick up by one hour. When done, I asked the contact to know who should I call in case anything happens. The answer was: "I spoke to a girl"! The beach service is done through a golf cart which takes you from the hotel to the beach. Good service, works well. Over there you have the beds, umbrellas and towels. It was disappointing to have no bar service from the hotel on the beach. If you need a drink, you need to go to a separate bar, make the line for 10 minutes to have something to drink. After 2 days, I saw the hotel beach server to give water to another guest and that's how I found out that at least water I could buy from him without the need to go on line for a bottle of water. All pretty basic stuff that you would expect a little bit of more refinement in a hotel that is supposed to be of one the best in Porto Cervo! Wouldn't be nice to have a happy hour, a cocktail party around the beautiful swimming pool to make the guests socialize? The hotel didn't do anything; nothing planned during 8 days prior to Ferragosto. Isn't that incredible!? A little cocktail party with some music so that we can spend money with drinks... it doesn't seem appealing at all. The food is honest and you can eat reasonably well at breakfast and lunch! Despite this experience, Sardegna continues to be a magical place for the ones that love the beach life! Just chose the right hotel!
The north of Sardinia, in particular Porto Cervo, smells of the sea, perfumed herbs, and of course money...Those with copious amounts of the latter will undoubtedly choose to stay at Cala di Volpe, home for the summer for the excruciatingly rich, famous and those who aspire to be such. i suggest that you take another option, the Colonna Pervero Hotel, just minutes away from the need to be dressed up even for breakfast...Here you will be greeted by friendly staff, under the watchful eye of General Manager Luca Rombi (always pristine in his pinstripes) and you won't have to run and buy an overly priced kaftan to pop down to the hotel's bountiful breakfast buffet at the hotel's Le Piscine restaurant, which offers both indoor and outdoor seating, and which looks out onto the property's crowning glory, its multiple-level pools - a few of which allow for privacy for couples or families. The hotel is in a prime location which offers easy and quick access by car to some of the most exquisite locations in the north of the island - Porto Cervo itself, the beautiful village of San Pantaleo where you will find an excellent market every Thursday morning, and which is home to many of Sardinia's top artists, and one of the island's best beaches - Spiaggia del Principe (The Prince's Beach), which is more sheltered from the Mistral winds than many of the other beaches. The Colonna Pervero has access to its own beaches, the private Piccolo and Grande Pevero - a mere 500 metres from the hotel. In the evening, if you want peace, quiet and a respite from the glitzy restaurants of Porto Cervo, settle youself at a table at the hotel's Zafferano restaurant, which overlooks the stunning illuminated waterfalls which form part of the five pools, and enjoy an excellent a la carte dinner served by the enthusiastic and attentive staff. If you want to explore what is known as one of the most expensive islands in the world without completely destroying your bank account, then the Colonna Pevero is the place to do it from - luxurious yet affordable and with service of the highest level. Book a room or suite with a sunbathing terrace and an excellent view of the pool and the ocean beyond on the 5th floor for maximum enjoyment...
The hotel is nice , the room was ok , the managers of the hotel should be changed . (Unpolite , rude , never saying good morning or good evening when you pass by) not able to make a late check out with kids when the hotel was half empty!!!!! The beach far from the best. The only positive thing of this hotel is the restaurant, the staff is working night and day, always welcoming always nice and helpful. The breakfast could be better especially with serving a fresh orange juice instead of Minute Maid !!!! but for lunch and dinner the meals are really good ! So I would not go back and recommand only a dinner there !
