The hotel is located in a small village called San Pantaleo which is a lovely place with old and typical Sardinian houses. The village is surrounded by rocky mountains and located approx. 5 km from the coast/beach. All the beautiful beaches of Northeastern Sardinia are easily reachable within 5-20 mins drive. The hotel itself is very calm and furnished with... More

We picked this hotel after the many positive recommendations on TripAdvisor and on the whole, they weren't wrong. We stayed for 7 nights for the price of 6 in September 2010 as part of our 2-week holiday in the north of Sardinia. We'd stayed in Olbia for the first 2 nights so the drive really wasn't far, but we still... More

We use tripadvisor.com a lot and every single decision we have made using it has panned out in spades. It was through tripadvisor that we happened upon Borgo Antico. First the town: San Pantaleo is mountain town about 4 km from the coast, nestled between beautiful rugged peaks that have stood guard for 10s of thousands of years. It's a... More

A beautiful hotel, perfect for couples, a little gem. We'll definitely return, despite the slightly scary roads from the airport (not that scary when you get used to them!). Book a room leading onto the terrace if you can, having said that the ones with mountain views are probably just as nice! This was possibly the cleanest hotel either of... More

Borgo Antico is a great place to stay and ideally located in San Pantaleo. The hotel is quiet, clean and a short drive to some of the nicest beaches in Costa Smeralda. All of the hotel staff was very nice & accomodating, especially IGNAZIA who answered our endless questions graciously :). The rooms are simple, but very clean and spacious... More

Reading the reviews there seemed to be only one option. 200 Euros a night seemed OK for what was undoubtably going to be a great hotel... except it really isn't. It is a really fairly average "pensione". The room was a good size for 2 adults and 1 child, clean and cool. The bathroom was very poor - a cheap... More

If you are looking for a good base to explore Sardinia, close (but not too close) to Olbia airport then this is your place! San Pantaleo itself is pretty and authentic and the hotel lives up to all the reviews you will find on this site. No restaurant but a very good (michelin starred) restaurant literally over the road and... More

This hotel fully deserves the previous positive comments. It is a small hotel with no restaurant so you have to eat out in the day - not a problem in Italy. The staff are great, especially Simone who was very patient with my limited Italian but really wanted to help. The rooms are fairly basic but clean and modern. We... More

The staff are lovely - very friendly and helpful. The hotel is attractive and clean. We probably didn't see it at it's best as we stayed in early April and the weather was not great. It was very cold in the dining room and several guests were eating breakfast in coats. The other problem was that there was only one... More

The hotel is small but very nice. We went out of season so it was quiet with no children. That did mean that it lacked a bit of 'buzz' but the peace and quiet was lovely. It was a great base for exploring the northern part of the island. The rooms are clean and adequate. A step above your average... More
