Definitely not great and not worth it whatsoever. If not for the amenities, the hotel would be considered a 3 star or at best a 4 star. Room: View - sea view room, the best thing about the whole trip was the view (which I paid for of course) A tiny mini bar , no coffee no snacks hardly anything available. Size - the standard room was literally a hole in the wall with a tiny cupboard for clothes and hardly any drawers. Lighting - three tiny lights so the rooms are completely dim without sunshine. Toilet - the actual toilet would come off the floor(seriously!!) when you sat on it and had an old musty smell. Pool and Beach - Pools - another positive, 3 huge saltwater pools. Lifeguards don't even watch the beach or pool as they're busy keeping track of your towels. You have to return your towels and get sort of a credit note or they charge you at check out. Beach - TINY beach and the water isn't so great. Definitely NOT the Sardinian water you were Imagining. Food: Breakfast was ok. Lunch and pool bar was absolutely terrible. Seriously like a 3 star resort with microwaved food. Absolutely awful!!! Location: Good location , you need to rent a car though as everything is driving distance away (which seems to be the norm here). I definitely would stay at another resort when I visit again.
We got there and the grounds look amazing with a big pool and great gardens, but the room was so so small that we couldn't fit in with our luggage. The front desk manager, she was great and gave us an upgrade at no cost, she really did her best. Not luxury accommodations at all and a 50 euro taxi ride in to town. The restaurant was so bad they comp our meals twice. This hotel only opens 5 months a year so its vey hard to have a good team operating it. The spa was ok but looked old and tired.
Large hotel complex with beautiful terrace for sunset views. Swimming pools are excellent, as is the spa and the fitness center. The hotel is located quite far from Porto Cervo centre. They have a complimentary shuttle service, but it is somewhat unreliable. My room in the fourth floor was small, but very clean, with a sea view and a small terrace. The food quality varies; overall very good. The wifi is terrible! Please improve the wifi. A note to travellers during high season : taxis are difficult to book, and they will steal your € if they can . I asked the concierge several hours in advance for taxi bookings, and even then it was a struggle. I recommend hiring a car if you are staying more than two nights. Special thanks to Luisa at the front desk , and Franco (concierge) who assisted with bookings and sorting the taxi issues. Grazie!
Excelent resort The full board is recommended. The food is great at the resort, and other restaurants are a bit far from the resort. Free transportation is available from the resort to Porto Cervo. Booking at the reception is required. The rooms need a makeover. The pools are fantasic.
If you are looking for a big hotel this might work for you. Our feed back was this hotel feel was a 1980's Hilton Hotel big and large might be great for a family. We were on a romantic trip and decide not to stay and rebooked a smaller hotel in the area.
My wife and I stayed at the Colonna resort from July 16-20, and had an overall fantastic visit! Room: the room was very clean, and had a nice ocean view from the fourth floor. The room can maybe use some updating but overall was clean, and the beds were comfortable. Pool: Beautiful pools with salt water, always found a seat. The pool water can be slightly warmer however, but still very nice. Beach: small beach area and the water is a little rough. There are umbrellas with chairs but we did not go to the beach there.There are so many beaches around that i would recommend driving to. Food: The breakfast was plentiful with many options, better than many European hotels i've been to. Dinner was pretty good as well, and reasonably priced. Service: It's surprising reading some reviews but the service we received was outstanding. The staff at the front desk especially were very professional and accommodating with any questions/requests we had. We did not stay much by the pool therefore cannot comment on the service by the pool. Location: AMAZING!! We had a car during our stay, and drove to different beaches. There are multiple beaches to choose from that are less than 25-30 min away that are worth visiting. The hotel is less than 10 min away from downtown Porto Cervo, and also a short drive to the many restaurants in Porto Cervo, Liscia di Vacca, etc and to the various nightclubs. When we come back to the North of Sardinia we will definitely attempt to stay here again!! Thanks again for the amazing experience as part of our honeymoon!
I just cancelled my reservation with this hotel because they wanted me to pay EUR 721,- extra for my a baby bed for 6 nights. Have you ever heard of a so called 5 star hotel asking more than EUR 100,- for a toddler joining per day? I think not. To have a double room for one adult with 2 babies does not justify an extra 721,- for a baby bed. The responses I received by email were partially in bad English or unprofessional manner. Just booked next door at the Grand Hotel Porto Cervo which might be older and less fancy but friendly and forthcoming for travelling mothers
Stayed at the resort in late June 2017. Overall observations are as follows: Positives: - Truly beautiful grounds and pools overlooking the bay. You can see yachts on their way in and out of Porto Cervo - Very clean and well presented - Evening five course dinner and service is outstanding - Lovely view over the bay in the evening from the bar balcony, service there is good - Very quiet - Free safe and good wifi Negatives: - Sunbeds look fantastic, but are uncomfortable. They could do with a thin mattress - Breakfast was okay, but would benefit from freshly cooked eggs. You can order these, but it would be great to be able to get them direct from the chef - Getting a seat on the balcony for dinner was a problem. You got entered onto a waiting list before you could get a place outside. Our inside table was close to the kitchens and very noisy and busy with waiters rushing in and out - The lunchtime poolside menu was limited and service was erratic. But unless you want to go to Porto Cervo where do you go to get it? - Water was not freely available, you had to pay for it - Lots of people smoking outside the pool restaurant and bar. I know it's perfectly legal, but as a non-smoker I do not like tobacco smoke wafting in my direction. For what it was, it was very expensive, not helped by Brexit of course. Be prepared for expensive taxi fares. A taxi to the airport cost 90 euros for a 30 minute journey, and a short 10 minute trip to Porto Cervo cost 20 euros, which adds 40 euros to popping out for lunch or evening meal there. Porto Cervo is lovely - full of yachts, high end stores and even a Ross Royce dealership.
First of all the name of this place says it all! This is not a hotel, this is a resort! This means you get a feeling of being in an all-inclusive kind of place. The biggest problem i had was the sleeping issue. Couldnt sleep at all. Walls are so this that i can hear the neighbour talking to his wife. Cleaning ladies are noisy in the morning so its hard to sleep after 8 am. I just woke up again after 4 nights here and i feel like i want to leave.
This hotel has nothing to do with 5 star ratings , service is very bad , welcome experience nothing.. let me tel you about it Reached Sardinia was looking forward to this resort with my family . I had booked a connecting sea view room paid much higher as well unfortunately in reality things are different . I don't recommend this hotel to anyone. The room I got it's a family room not connected room and the view is garden view a little of the sea on the corner can be seen. Rooms are all outdated , the bed mattress cannot be cheaper and blankets are old . Complained to front office where they were nothing able to do . Asked to meet the GM of the hotel and nothing happened . The restaurants are nothing great and food is poor . The PDR in room dinning poor as well After no choice I had to take the room and my keys were not working and for 8 times they tried to fix it . Bellboys are cleaning hotel lobby early morning, lifeguards are cleaning pool floor area where they should be watching the people more as Safety is the most important . Finally reducing my stay and I advise people not to make this mistake
