Once you arrive at the hotel you get to appreciate just how stunning the views are. I say once you arrive because it is quite a trek both down and then up a mountain side, along very windy roads. We were lucky enough to have the only room with the jaw dropping view of the valley and the mountains but... More

We stayed for three nights as a base for part of our walking holiday. The room was spacious with a balcony and a view of the mountains. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was lovely, the packed lunches were brilliant and the evening meals served in the scenic restaurant on the terrace were obviously fresh and home cooked!... More

From the hotel we made three trips all in short driving distance: First the Goruppu gorge, an easy hike and stunning surrounding at the end of the deep gorge. The boat trip from Cala Gonone in the Golfo Orosei was priceless. We visited the spectacular coast, caves and secluded beaches with our own little motor boat. On the final day,... More

Hotel Sant’elene is a reasonable place as a base to explore the east central part of Sardinia. It appears to be a family run enterprise, and everyone is very friendly, although English is in short supply (but with a dictionary and ample gestures everything that really needs to gets done). The bedroom and bathroom are plain, but reasonably sized and... More

We stayed here one night and wish we had stayed for more. Wonderful small hotel with great views and more. We were two couples and our friends had stayed before. From the moment we arrived we were treated by Leeno with wonderful friendship akin to our being a member of the family. The rooms were spacious and the evening meal... More

we have stayed at this small hotel twice now during our visits to Sardinia and it is a very pleasant friendly hotel that makes you fell very relaxed after a day at the nearby beaches. Nice sounds of cow bells in the hills and of sheep being herded during the evening in the slopes around the hotel. Very rural but... More

Run by a great family. Rooms are clean. Great views from the deck. It is a little out of town so it is very quiet. We ate there all nights as we did not have a car. Pasta & Pizza were excellent along with the rest of the menu.

This is a wonderful place if you are looking for comfortable facilities, excellent food, great natural landscapes and easy access to the paradise beaches around Cala Gonone. I should say that staff was very friendly and helpful as well, we always received a great service over our stay. With no hesitation this Hotel is strongly recommended!! Héctor UK

Located just out of Dorgali, we arrived at Sant'Elene after a long days drive through the (great) Sardinian country side. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, who is very knowledgeable about the area and the history of Sardegna in general. The rooms are nice, big, clean and well kept. To top it off we enjoyed our dinner on the... More

This is a dream hotel set in the hills a little way out of Dorgali. The chef patron is charming and his passion for Sardianian language and culture makes him an absolute font of knowledge on the area although it helps if you can speak Italian (or French). The rooms are great, clean and comfortable and with your own loggia... More
