Simple but nice Sardinian style rooms, good and fresh breakfast, close by Palau (shopping) and Porto Rafael, 30 minutes driving from Costa Smeralda, 10 minutes fromn Porto Pollo (water sports). Reception service is average, restaurant service good and professional.

The hotel was at first a quaint surprise compared to the usual white high rise hotels found in other countries. The room was basic but clean and tidy with 2 rooms for 2 people but spacious enough. On the plus side: The staff were lovely and helpful No mosquitoes, wasn't bitten at all Good shuttle hotel minibus to Palau The... More

This hotel dates from the 1980s and looks as if it was never really finished. At the top of the site there is a dumped car and builders materials left in the bushes. The gardens are untended and it all looks uncared for. Maybe it was the end of the season but it looked as if it had been like... More

The location was perfect for our family beach holiday. We had a car so access to Palau was easy. Palau was full of restaurants and a perfect base to explore the islands. The nearest beach was only 300m walk from the hotel along a path through the bush. The family room (105) had a great view overlooking the bay and... More

North Sardinia is a beautiful place but I hope this write up persuades anyone to visit without staying at the Hotel Altura because it is so very awful (ORRIBILE). In fact Hotel Altura is the worst hotel we have ever stayed at by far. The phrase ‘What do you expect it is the end of the season’ seemed to be... More

We had great views from our patio to the sea and to the mountains. The room was clean but basic. We made daily use of the fridge provided. We found the quality of the food varied from day to day. Fish good. Pasta bland. Portions huge. Staff friendly .Never found the bar open when we wanted a drink! Missing a... More

Just back from a week at Altura and previous comments about needing a car, helpful staff, steep steps to rooms are all valid. The beach walk is only for the fit, the path was virtually washed away in a rainstorm last week so it is a difficult decent, but this is the quick way into town where you can find... More

The rooms are basic. I can cope with that if I had a decent bed! The mattress was very thin and every time you turned over you got a spring in your side. The 'restaurant' was nothing of the sort. At breakfast the menu for lunch and dinner was on your table. It was a set menu of pasta for... More

A lovely hotel friendly helpfull staff from the the moment you arrive. The rooms are very clean well laid out with a good shower. The site is set on a hill side and access to the rooms are via external stairway which could be a problem for those who have difficulty using stairs. Fantastic food and wine. A good location...

Really excellent hotel from all point of view: confortable and nicely furnished room, clean, delicious food (fish every day), nice beach (La Sciumara) only 5 minutes away (on foot), helpful and kind personell. Only disadvantages: the hotel is not in town, therefore a car is necessary; no internet connection available.
