We just came back from 1 week in this hotel. The room was big and the price quite attractive (we had a combined package flight + hotel). The air conditionning and mini fridge were working fine. The pool area is very nice and there was always enough seats for everybody. People at the reception were always very friendly and happy... More

Me and my fiancée had an outstanding time in Cala Gonone thank to the Hotel Smeraldo; everybody has been so friendly and professional to us, from the lads at the Reception desk to the waiters/waitresses at the restaurant/bar. The swimming pool is tiny but clean and pretty, surrounded by a number of stunning trees; the closest beach is 10 mins... More

Nice and reasonable hotel. Friendly staff, good wifi and nice pool area. The only drawbacks were the breakfast and the 20 minute walk to get downtown. Would still stay there again. Cala Gonone was also a very nice location. Rent a boat and check out the caves and cliffs along the coast!

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. the hotel itself is a bit 80's decorated but well maintained. We booked for 1 night and decided to stay for another night specially because of the help of the receptionists who helped us with the local attractions. The rooms are big but not fancy. the breakfast was good, although it seemed... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comment and we are sorry that you did not enjoy some parts of your stay at Hotel Smeraldo. Unfortunately last year, one of the manager of the restaurant left us early on the season and we did not manage to find a suitable alternative, therefore the restaurant was without a manager, but this year...

I enjoyed staying at H.S. Location: not the heart of Cala Gonone, but it's o.k: just ~10 min of walking to downtown. Room: clean; I didn't ordered room with a see view, but I got it. Breakfast: really good.

We chose Sardinia for our honeymoon trip and it was great idea! Sardinia is the most beautiful island in Europe! Especially Cala Gonone coast! This hotel we chose for good price (100 EUR per night per room). The worst think is this hotel location...Cala Gonone resort is mountainous, so from the resort centre or beach You must go to the...

The hotel is situated 20 minutes walk from the harbour (centre). The staff is very accomodating and the pool is good. But the room was completely blue and poorly lit. Not romantic. Bathroom was poor.
