We have just returned from a week's holiday in Sardinia and stayed at La Vecchia Fonte Hotel for the middle two nights of our holiday. We had booked one of the hotel's classic rooms but were very kindly upgraded to a suite, which was a lovely treat, especially since it was my birthday. Our rooms were very nice, very tastefully...

Found the place fairly easily, but did have to contravene the one-way system to park-up. We were asked on check-in whether we wanted to a free mini-bar or free-parking - which otherwise would have cost 12Euro a day. Friendly and instructive concierge, who showed us to our room. Room was spacious, with soft furnishings to the minimum. Had most of... More

Dear Sirs, we thank you for your kind review. We are sorry you didn't appreciate the view. The touristic Harbour can be fascinating while the car parking, even if it's not the best view, is necessary to tourists but for the future there are some projects that foresee gardens. This could help to enhance the area. Our kindest regards More

Stayed two nights, classic room. Very nice hotel, and very central. Check in was quick, service perfect, good breakfast. Beach towel rental available. Nothing to complain about, for once... :-) Will recommend this to others.

I stayed here twice 2 nights, waiting for friends to arrive (we always rent a house if there are more people). Great place to get into the mood for Sardinia, also to catch some sleep in the day (had VERY early flights on both occasions). Internet worked as expected, parking was also very convenient (in-house for 12 Euros / day).... More

Loved it! Beautiful and spacious room by the port. Palau is a cute town with lots of shops and restaurants. There is a great market next door from the hotel. It is also located 2 minutes away from the bus station and the port which makes it easy for excursions to La Maddalena or to visit other towns.

We only stayed in the hotel for two nights and basically used this hotel as a base to explore northern Sardinia. I personally wouldn't stay for longer than 1-2 nights. It's conveniently located near the port and bus station. We caught a ferry to La Maddalena for the day and it's only half an hours drive to Santa Teresa port... More

I am a frequent traveler for outdoor sports (kite surfing and snowboarding). The north coast is fantastic during the right conditions for kiters and wind surfers, and this hotel was perfect for Palau. Everything you read here about the friendly staff is true. We were greeted by Giangiocomo (sp?), and he did far more than he should have to make... More

Had a very relaxing stay at La Vecchia Fonte in the middle of April. Staff at the hotel were always welcoming, friendly and helpful. In fact, when we had a problem with our car, the lady on the front desk was exceptionally helpful and offered some very useful translation! Rooms are an excellent size and very clean.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in early October when the weather was perfect and Sardinia less crowded. The hotel is lovely - go for a "classic plus" room with a balcony so that you can watch the harbour comings and goings while enjoying a sundowner! Our room was spotless and comfortable with a reasonaby sized bathroom. Breakfast... More
