Great beach location, luxurious gardens, and seriously good service. The owner takes pride in solving any potential problems tourist might have, and all the staff is very helpful, they all speak 2-3 foreign languages and they are better trained than hotel and restaurant staff we've seen anywhere else in Sardinia.

The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful flowering a garden. It is perfectly located a few steps from the beaches. The small road in front og the hotel is a one way road with little traffic and no traffic at night. Beautiful ocean view from the restaurant. Very good food for breakfast as well as dinner.

We have stayed at Costa Dorada 4 nights. The hotel is very clean and it's gardens are kept beautiful. Our room had great views of the sea and was very spacious (it was the suite). The reviews that helped us pick the hotel were excellent and the expectations met. The food at the restaurant very delicious. The weather was warm... More

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.

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
