Hotel Balocco

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Myself and partner stayed at the hotel as part of a last minute long weekend break away. The hotel is situated about 40 minute drive from Olbia airport and is fantastic. The staff were very friendly and welcoming (top marks to the wonderful Rossa on front desk, who was very helpful with our questions and went out of her way to assist us). Breakfast was included and was a great selection at the poolside restaurant. We had a 'comfort' room on the ground floor, more than suited our needs (especially as we were out and about most of the day) and had its own private terrace opening out to the pool. I would highly recommend this hotel and I would be exceptionally happy to return again. My only complaint is that we only booked for three nights!!

We recently enjoyed a lovely 5 night stay at the Balocco. On arrival the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The hotel itself is very 'Italian' looking, quaint, stylish and beautifully decorated. It was exactly what we wanted. We had a standard room which was basic and quite small but clean and had a gorgeous view. We had a few room issues which is why I haven't awarded the hotel 5 stars. The fridge in our room was broken, this was important as we had medicine that had to be kept chilled which the hotel were aware of. We reported this to staff but unfortunately was never fixed - they did offer us ice but this didn't solve our problem. The shower wasn't great and on one occasion the hot water completely ran out whilst I was in there and never came back on! The best part of the hotel is my opinion is the pool area - absolutely beautiful. As we stayed in October there was always plenty of space even though the weather was still mid 20s. Fabulous restaurant only 5 minutes away called La Briciola! PLEASE NOTE: The hotel is at the top of a very steep hill. We did a few walks to the marina which was fine but not for anyone who has difficulty with mobility. Most guests appeared to have hire cars to get about which is strongly recommended.

Had a wonderful time when we stayed....room was clean every day ....good variety for breakfast ....staff were friendly and attentive ....nothing was too much trouble ....Rosella and the other reception staff were full of local tips ..locations ...places to eat.....highly recommended....many thanx

Great location of the hotel; fantastic views overlooking the port. Nice quiet boutique hotel with breath taking views (our room was massive with a private terrace). Of course you have to pay a premium but it is worth it! The whole of the hotel was very clean and well maintained. Very nice pool area; sunny all day long. However, absolutely awful depressing music played at the pool all day long and the same album every single day of our 10 days stay :(! Reception staff extremely helpful; especialy Damiro and Franco and the porter! For a 4 star hotel the breakfasts were very poor, lacking any fresh vegetables and fruits; eggs made to order would be much better than already prepared scrambled eggs in a tray which were often cold.

My heavily pregnant fiancé and I stayed here for 4 nights in august 17. It is a very nice, boutique style hotel. There is a very nice man on front desk who helped us throughout the 4 days. Would definitely return. You definitely need a car. Not because of where the hotel is, but because everywhere on the costa smeralda is so far spread out

Hi I would to recommend Balocco hotel not because their staff had asked me to but because I felt the need to do it and share the beautiful experience my family and I had during our stay in the hotel and in the city of Porto Cervo. It was just magical . Everything was perfect from location of the hotel to the standard of the hotel as well as the 5 stars services we had. If I have one small details that need probably some improvement is the AC in the room where it was bit warm and the size of the bathroom which was bit small for 02 people Thank you to the staff who was very helpful and friendly and made our stay unforgettable We will come back again

We stayed here for 2 nights in August and had a fabulous experience. All of the hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was well appointed as was the whole hotel. The view from our room overlooking the pool and down towards Porto Cervo was stunning. Breakfast was a continental buffet and provided everything that we needed. There are a few restaurants within walking distance. I would recommend this hotel and will hopefully return for a second stay.

Staff helpful and competent, well located and good cost-benefit. Only point of improvment is the wi fi which only works in collective areas like reception, pool and restaurant. Near to good restaurants and beautiful beaches.

The hotel is small with a great feel and awesome front desk. They very helped full in booking a 1/2 day private boat trip and pointing us to the right beaches. Spot on food recommendations. We had a great room 105 that had a view and balcony. They A/C was not that strong in our room.

We had a very pleasant 4 night stay. We were a party of 3 and stayed in a junior suite which had a nice balcony area. The hotel is in a good location with simple decor, well maintained and clean. Service is generally very good and friendly. Everything we requested for the room was dealt with very well quickly and efficiently. Lovely pool area. Breakfast was good quality (delicious croissants!). However, given the prices, it would be nice if eggs could be made to order rather than just a tray of scrambled every day.
