We stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Staff are great and make you feel very welcome. Very enjoyable short coastal walk into town. We travelled with a group and meet each night in the bar where the owner "Pavarotti" would welcome us with champagne or wine and explain the nights specials. The hotel grounds are beautiful... More

A wonderful place. I stayed here for two nights ( sept. 2013 ). The staff were very helpful and made sure I was any request I made was taken care of. The location is great, the beach is right across the street, parking is close by, many eateries and stores are within way walking distance. The sun rises across the... More

Alessi (the big guy that looks a bit like Pavarotti) the owner makes you feel like he is welcoming you into his home. We had been recommended by some other travellers to stay at Costa Dorada. The decor is a bit old, but it's clean and maintained for it's age. The gardens around the hotel are beautiful. Location is great,... More

Coming to Costa Dorada every year now. I love it, the staff is helpful and kind. The whole environment is laid back and quiet, perfect for resting after a long riding day. The hotel is motorcycle friendly. I have to put special emphasis on the kitchen. Outstanding dinners and breakfast with sea view.

Having researched almost every hotel in Sardinia, regardless of cost, we chose Costa Dorada and Cala Gonone because we wanted a relaxing time in a rustic, laid back, pretty coastal town and to be close to the beach. I think our choice could not have been better. Cala Gonone is beautiful and in some ways very like Santorini (but less... More

I loved staying at the Costa Durada. The staff were so kind and so helpful and when, at the last moment, the hotel was able to book a mini-cruise up the coast and the owner of the hotel drove me to the port, I knew I was in a good place. Forget Villasmius and go here for your week's holiday:... More

The hotel is located at a magnificant place. Furniture and rooms are run down. Our first room (16) was small and we had almost no daylight, the a.c. was very loud and the phone did not work at all. In the morning we had lots of ants in our bathroom. The friendly manager fixed the ant-issue. Two days later we... More

Management response:

Room 16 is a double standard room, which size is 19 sq. mts., as the majority of standard rooms in Italian family runned hotels ( which have totally different standards from chain hotels ). Its window and door are exposed towards East-South-East, so we are a bit confused about what the guest means when he says “the room had almost... More

Stayed in this hotel as part of an organised motorcycle tour of Sardinia and it was a highlight. The room was beautiful, and the grounds lovely. The service from the owner and his staff was first rate. I'd definitely stay there again.

Hotel is good but not total luxury. It has everything else. Owner operated and he has style. He seems to speak most languages. Food is really good. Prices good and excellent value for money. The most beautiful place in beautiful Sardinia. Hotel organises a great boat trip.to Cala Luna and other beaches than can only be reached by boat. Easy... More
