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

The clientèle is mainly of German origin. The owner is ever so present and can speak fluently Italian, German... More

Winter time in Denmark is time for dreaming about holidays and sunshine. In our family we dream about Hotel Costa Dorada – this genuine pearl in Cala Gonone which we found by chance in 2005. Ever since then we have spent one week there every summer. The hotel is owned and run by charismatic Alessio Mulas and his lovely sister... More

We have just returned from a wonderfull week at the Hotel Costa Dorada. We chose the half board option when booking and this proved to be an excellent choice with a very varied and good choice of food on offer. The Drinks were extra but all at a reasonable price for a hotel.The owner and his staff were always very... More

Very clean, service was great from the people there, but the breakfast was poor-considering the prices of course-, and there was a lousy disco that made sleep a difficult task. Beautiful view of the sea from the upper floor rooms, but again, for that price, one would expect a private balcony instead of a shared one. Overall very nice but... More

We spend the weekend with friends and family and celebrated our wedding. The team at Costa Dorada was excellent and we cannot thank everyone enough. Food and wine was just so good, and timing perfect!! We will keep coming back as we have been many times.
