I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this was not it. Its a lovely property that you feel as if you're a private guest. The location makes for a great base. The rooms were well appointed. Letizia, the young lady at the front desk made me feel as if I were her only guest. She was extremely helpful in... More

I've been in Hotel Vecchia Marina almost 4 months ago, but still can not forget these positive and romantic emotions it brought to me. While I was searching for a quiet place in Arbatax, I had to choose among a very few hotels this coast village had. Now I'm sure that was a truly right choice to get Vecchia Marina.... More

The room was pleasantly decorated and comfortable. The breakfast was superb, with a great choice, including fruit and locally made biscuit/cake specialities. The staff were very friendly and the receptionist's English exceptionally good. Alas the room walls are not thick enough for sound-insulation, and this is not helped by the tiled floors - I could hear the people talking and... More

Whilst Arbatax itself is not a great resort the location is perfect for beach or inland trips. This hotel was a very good stop while we were in the area. The reception staff members were consistently helpful and friendly in dealing with any requests made of them. They spoke good English and had a pleasant demeanour throughout the day and... More

A great little hotel with a true Sardinian feel. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, and the buffet breakfast was amazing. One of the staff even called up and helped us with booking a boat to hire (really recommend doing this by the way!). Only slight issue was the air-conditioning broke down on us for 2 days. I did feel... More

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely hotel close to the beach. The hotel is a good starting point to explore Sardinia. Staff very friendly. The breakfast was tasty. We went to Cala Goloritze for a trip which was also great. Arbatax is a small village but if you go to Tortoli you can find there shops and good restaurants... More

The hotel is easy to find, located near the beach in the quite countryside. We did not swim in the beach so I cannot comment on it. The hotel staff spoke English. Also, they gave us the discount to use at the nearby La Baia restaurant-pizzeria there we had delicious pizza. Breakfast in the hotel was rich and tasty, especially... More
