What a disappointment, especially for the money. From the food, to the staff, to the accommodations, all 2nd class. More like military bunk beds and military cafeteria food. The beach front catalog photo is even photoshopped! The glamorous hotel video is just bait-don't fall for it. The management was absolutely useless, period. Unfortunately a pre-paid excursion with no way out. Nightmare stay. Many other options out there.

Disappointing:- 1) Room service charges were excessive. We arrived at the hotel at about 10pm and my boys were hungry so they ordered a pasta dish each to their room. The service charge was about 11 or 12 euros each despite being delivered to the same room and therefore the price of the two pasta dishes came to about 62 euros which personally was not worth it. 2) The pools are seriously too cold and that is why even in the height of summer hardly anyone uses them. Positives 1) Beautiful setting and views. 2) Staff were polite & the service was efficient.

Although it looks very nice and the decor is pretty nice too, it wasn't exactly what we had expected. We stayed there as it was my birthday and wanted somewhere special to end our trip away, and what better then Porto Cervo!! The hotel was a lot further from the centre of restaurants than we thought, and cost 25 euros each way for a taxi. The pools around the hotel were lovely and visiting late September meant that me and my boyfriend had one of the many pools to ourselves which was lovely, and right next to the beach was ideal and the scenery absolutely beautiful. The downsides to this place was that there wasn't a kettle in the room to make tea/coffee (but think that might be a English thing, I don't know), there also wasn't a iron and ironing board in the room. When by boyfriend asked about this they said that they couldn't provide one but would iron his shirt for 10 euros! We decided not to do this as would be dark when we went out anyway!! Nights sleep wasn't great as was two single beds pushed together and I spend most of my night trying to get myself out of that gap in the middle - to be fair this does seem to be what happens when you go away but staying here we did think we might get an actual double bed on how we were staying at a 'spa'. What really did make us think about our stay was the fact that we had paid a little bit more and wanted to stay at a 'spa' for my birthday, only to realise that to go in the spa you have to spend an extra 30 Euros per person! And it wasn't great! At all!! The pool was tiny, the water was lukewarm and the whole experience was a massive let down. When you are paying an extra 60 euros to attend the spa you thought you had already paid for, and then all you do is get a lukewarm bath with some strangers - it's not that relaxing or romantic! Although it has given us some giggles when we talk about it now. (Or grimacing from the other half as he has to pay for it 😂). Breakfast was good and you could have as much as you wanted (and the people next to us really did and I don't blame them! We all spend 30 euros on a spa which we would have created in our own homes!), but they tried to appease everyone as had cooked food (sauages, bacon etc), lots of other food such as ham, cheese, fruit, drinks - the only criticism would be that you weren't allowed to help yourself to hot drinks and when the lovely man came over the drinks were freezing cold (both times!). So all in all was a nice place to stay. Was very clean, I found the staff very courteous and polite but I wouldn't stay there again as if I'm paying to stay at a spa, I presume I'm going to be able to use the pool and sauna without being charged for it.

Colonna Resort was a fantastic place to visit and the resort is absolutely heavenly. The property is grand in size and the facilities exceeds all expectations. Multiple outdoor swimmingpools and sunbeds in all shapes and quantities. You feel completely alone on the resort due to the size and the number of visitors although the hotel was full. The resort has several eatingpossibilities and we chose the all-inclusive package where you choose from a buffet for lunch including your maincourse ala carte choice between vegetarian, meat or fish of the day. In the evening you had a salad-buffet before your three course meal which was gourmet class every evening. Staff was very welcoming and friendly to please the customers/visitors on the resort. Rooms were nicely decorated with mini-bar, spacious bathroom and cleaning twice a day with new towels and accessories. We loved the place and would definately come back at a later date and the place is not hard to recommend to other visitors. If you plan a visit to Porto Cervo - this is the place to stay!

The pictures speak for itself about this resort, it's beautifully located with amazing views and lovely areas to stay both by the poolside and by the sea. However, my overall experience was only average of this hotel. First of all, the staff seemed to be extremely busy and did not have time to give you the service you'd expect at a 5-star-resort. The lasagna we ordered to the room reminded me more about the kind of food you get on economy class on a long distance flight. It seemed to me that the people who got attention and service from the staff were the people staying in the suites and arriving by helicopter. Colonna resort is full of people who want to see and be seen, so if you're looking for something that is more casual I'm not sure if this is the right place.

Unfortunately we were here 2 weeks out of season so lacked a little buzz. That being said, the peace an quiet was an upside. Resort is amazing and the pool/beach area looking out over the ocean was spectacular. Sunset drinks on the deck outside reception is a must. Throw in a 2 hour spa treatment too and it was a very relaxing few days. Only downside is that it's a little way from shopping or restaurants. If you're happy enough to take taxis (can be expensive) or have your own car then its good. Don't expect to walk out of the Resort and just up the road to some atmosphere though. Definitely recommended.

Great spot, far enough from town to be quiet but in a very nice area. Really good pool area and activities if you are that way inclined! The food was both local and good, with plenty of it and the waiting staff very good!

Our room was a suite on the 5th floor with an outstanding view of the bay. We suggest you always request the ocean view. The staff was wonderful and the facilities very good. This is a great place for relaxing or exploring the Sardinia coast and a day trip to Corsica.

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week stay at the Colonna Resort Hotel in Porto Cervo. The hotel is set in a beautiful (if a little quiet) location on Sardinia’s famed Emerald Coast. On the subject of location the area around the hotel is exclusively holiday villas and is very quiet with nothing really in walking distance in terms of other bars or places to eat. If you want to get out and about you may wish to hire a car (we arranged one at the Hotel) The hotel itself is very well appointed; most rooms have a sea view. Ours was 2803 and towards the front of the large and well maintained grounds. We had great views of the sea and the yachts of the super rich as they anchored in our little bay. The large and numerous swimming pools look delightful but were a little on the cold side which may have explained the lack of bathers! However we preferred the little private beach and deck area where you could swim in the sea under the protective gaze of the life guards who took their jobs very seriously. One chap (whose name I didn't get) was always telling people off for swimming beyond the red safety buoys. It might help if the hotel posted some notices about this as it might make the life guard slightly less stressed! As regard the other hotel staff I have nothing but compliments. The concierge service was always helpful, maid service spot on with fresh bedding provided regularly, the restaurant staff worked extremely hard and were always pleasant cheerful and helpful when we had questions about the menu or the wines on offer. In particular I would like to pass on my compliment to Vanessa, Caria who always cheerful and Luca for helping us to order in Italian (if not always successfully!). The food and table service at this hotel was in our experience excellent with plenty of choice and always exceptionally well cooked and presented, so our compliments must also go to the Chef and kitchen staff. Something to note about the hotel and the area is everything is very expensive. We were on a half board basis and were prepared for this but even so it was quite a shock to be charged €10 euros for an Aperol Spritz, €6 euros for a small bottle of local beer and €5 euros for a bottle of still water in the restaurant! I should add however that with the exception of the water in the restaurant the costs for alcoholic drinks in a couple of other places we visited locally were comparable so I did not think the hotel was ripping us off, it is just a fact of that the area is considered to be so exclusive everybody has hiked their prices to reflect this! Given that we were on half board we took the opportunity to stock up on essentials in the local supermarket in Porto Cervo and limited our intake in the restaurant to a bottle of wine. The only slight disappointment was the fact that we had to leave a day early, apparently due to the water being shut off by the municipal authority. We were given notice of this before the holiday started so it didn’t really detracted from our stay apart from losing a morning to the logistics of the transfer for which we were compensated. Despite this I would recommend this hotel and in particular the staff who work there unreservedly.

We stayed in this hotel for the first four nights our honeymoon and everything was just perfect. When we arrived the tone was set by the concierge meeting us to bring in our luggage then being greeted by spumante in our room. The breakfast options were vast and catered for all needs and the dinner consisted of some of the best food I have ever had.There were so many little touches in this hotel which make it such a memorable experience.
