We stayed for 11 nights and from the start when we were greeted and our car parked, to when we left, we can only praise the attentiveness and professionalism of the staff. It is fair to say that WiFi not being available in the rooms is a very small negative, but you are welcome to use it in the common... More

We stayed at Capo d'Orso for 3 nights only, as part of a longer tour in Sardinia. PLUS The hotel is mainly in line with its rating (5 star) and with our expectations. Its main plus is, in my opinion, the fantastic location and the beautiful design of the entire resort. It is secluded among olive trees, in a beautiful... More

This hotel is lovely. We had a great room with a big porch and sitting room. The shower is quite small and dated. People mentioned that there are lots of stairs and there are so people who may have trouble walking up and down should be warned...but the stairs and paths all around the property lead to little remote places...

This is the perfect hotel for a relaxing vacation in Italy. Beautiful location, great food, very kind and professional staff. For visiting the near islands you can simply rent a boat at the port next to the hotel. A big compliment to the young employees!

Capo Dorso captured our hearts. Quiet elegant yet a bit rustic with breathtaking view of sea and blue sky. The food as we were half board, was one of the best we have ever eaten. And mostly is the staff. Kind and nice, mostly young, that helped in many ways and made our stay a true delight.

Capo d'Orso is a great place for a quiet, luxurious sea holiday. Many details about the place are just stunning and we left with an overall feeling of having been pampered. The landscaping of the grounds is beautiful (how do they manage? in a week we never saw a gardener!), the life harp music at breakfast a great idea, the... More

My Husband and I chose this hotel as we wanted a complete fortnights holiday and break from the world. The hotel is beautifully located, on a sweep of coast in Palau, with the beautiful Islands of the Sardinia-Corsica archipelagos on your doorstep and a boat trip away. (the most famous being La Maddalena and worth a little trip) The hotel... More

Just returned after a 10 night stay which we booked through Citalia. On arrival we were greeted warmly and informed we had been upgraded to a sea view deluxe room - great! Car parked for us and all luggage taken to our room whilst we had our welcome Prossecco sitting outside overlooking the sea - never got tired of this... More

This is our fourth visit to the Capo D'Orso. As usual, it was extremely relaxing. The hotel is perfectly located, just in front of the Maddalena Islands and off the busy area of Costa Smeralda. The surroundings are breathtaking, and the hotel is perfectly inserted into the macchia mediterranea, allowing privacy for its guests. With one busy serviced beach (better... More

On the north coast of Sardinia near Palau, this five star hotel has so much ambiance that one cannot supply enough praise. Most rooms overlook the sea, however, forget the usual tower block apparitions we see in Spain, this hotel's rooms all have access from outside and are in effect a terrace of one up or one down two storey...
