Just stayed their last night. Reasonably sized, clean rooms...although the beds were rather hard. Location is great...the night we were there, there was a market happening, and the next morning was even a bigger market. Breakfast was good too. If you want a comfortable, well located, hotel, (I mean, it's not the Ritz) you probably can't go wrong here.

This is a 4 star hotel fitted out in a traditional/old fashioned way Perhaps it may look like a 3 star but the attentiveness, service, cleanliness and professionality is beyond any 4 star I've ever been in Great buffet breakfast btw!

We stayed at this hotel 7 nights and everything was wonderful. Is a small, coquette and very clean hotel with friendly stuff. The rooms are very clean and well decorated.

We loved this hotel. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. We had a small balcony on the back. The hotel served a good breakfast, it is located in the middle of the village, just by the port an all restaurants and stores. There are several nice beaches a few minutes’ drive away. I do not know if this is... More

We spent 6 days in La Vecchia Fonte and wished we could stay longer! The hotel is located perfectly: very close to the seafront with at least 2 nice beaches walking distance away. The room was clean, stylish and spacious, and we had an awesome balcony overlooking the marina. There are basic amenities, including a small cattle and variety of... More

My partner and I have just returned from a weeks stay at La Vecchia Fonte in Palau. We only have good things to say about it. Our room was a good size, it was cleaned everyday, bed made, towels changed. Ours backed onto the back of the Hotel, I would recommend staying at the back as opposed to the front... More

The hotel is located close to the harbor overlooking the harbor. There is a fine service, and the location is close to the ferry to Madelena. But the room balconies are micro in the regular classic rooms. Moreover, one can not eat breakfast outside - a shame, because there is a beautiful view. And finally, I missed a swimming pool....

Very nice and classy hotel right on the harbour. Rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. Service is very good and we got great advice concerning what to do and where to go best. The breakfast buffet was great. Would definitely got there again, strongly recommended!

Palau is a good starting point to explore the Costa Esmeralda. La Madalenna Island is nearby, interesting little town, beaches some kilometers away, not as expensive as Porto Cervo, and more typical of Sardegna. The hotel has comfortable rooms, well prepared for those who go to the beaches. Welcoming, friendly and very professional staff. Good breakfast. Very well situated. Lacks... More
