Stayed at this hotel in july 2013 before leaving for Baia Sardinia. One of my best experiences on Sardinia. The city of Cala Gonone is a hidden gem on Orosei coast. Provides you with beautiful scenery, best wild beaches on Sardinia and a wide selection of restaurants for different tastes. Wild beaches around can be reached by boat (hop on-hop... More

Perfetto(!!) posizione, cordialità e servizio. First of all, you couldn't be in a better location in Cala Gonone. I was steps away from the harbor, in the middle of it all without the noise, hustle and bustle. While close to everything in town. All that with a free parking spot that I could see from my terrace.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon and we were very happy with the hotel and the staff. The room we had over looked the harbour and we happily sat on the balcony watching the world go by.

The best thing about Il Nuovo Gabbiano is certainly the staff. Without exception, each person working here was helpful and accommodating -- more than that, they were proactive, but not in any way overbearing. The front desk clerk checked in to make sure we were ok on our way in or out of the hotel, and helped us with all... More

The hotel has a great location right beside the harbor. We got upgraded to a sea view room. It's nice to sit on the balcony and feel the life around the harbor, travelers coming and boats leaving. Excursions take place at this harbor, great position if you want to visit the nearby beaches which can only be accessed with boats,... More

We stayed here for one night in April 2003. We followed our Sat\Nav and it brought us down the old road. Crazy descent that we will never forget. Obviously not used much any more as it's occupied by goats that are very reluctant to move. If you find yourself on this road don't panic - just keep going! The hotel... More
