Oh Dear,
Where do I start? HOTEL ORLANDO is the most amazing place I have ever been and such a surprise. Italians are famous for being friendly, gracious and kind BUT Pietrina Lecca and her family, staff brought that to a whole new level, you were family the moment you said BUONASERA.
We didn't want to leave, FYI, we are going to be back in June for Villa Grande festival, staying at our home away from home, HOTEL ORLANDO with Pietrina and family. HOTEL ORLAND is also hosting the conference and studies of the BLUE ZONES (regions where more centurions are living 100 + years) and are healthy . Including Dr.Gianni Pez, MD, one of founding experts in THE BLUE ZONE REGIONS. GET A NEW FAMILY - cozy yet modern hotel, the best spa is being built as I write, the whole place is beautifully done. The food outstanding and the property that HOTEL ORLANDO is a beautiful forest with Cinghiale (wild boar), cows walking on the nearby road, known for the best fungi procini EVER!

Room Tip: There isn't a bad one, facing the pool or inside over looking the stair case in the center of th...

We came to explore the people and vicinity of the Blue Zone in Sardegna Villagrande region. What we found at the Orlando Resort Hotel was the wonderful owner Petrina taking so much of her time to make our stay just as exciting relaxing stimulation health and wisdom filled as one could ever ask for. We can't wait to return in the Spring. Everyone at the Orlando Resort Hotel went the extra mile you look for and seldom find...but try it you must. We cam e for five nights and should of booked more time.

The Spa that is nearly complete will be the best in our opinion as we saw it and its size and design for high service is just perfect. We tried another Spa a long way from Orlando and know we understand why the Orlando Spa is being built, can't wait.

The food is so interesting but the people in the vicinity are the best.

The health we learned about here is wisdom.

I can't begin to describe how much we loved Hotel Orlando. We arrived in Sardinia on Saturday and stayed in Alghero our first night. We were not overly fond of that part of Sardinia so we were not quite sure what to expect when we arrived at Hotel Orlando. Needless to say the setting itself was magnificent; the colorful buildings, the infinity pool and majestic mountains....and that was before we got out of the car!! We were warmly greeted by Pietra and Manuela. Our room was quaint, clean and our balcony overlooked the courtyard and beautiful grounds. I was immediately drawn outside to photograph the flowers. Here my husband and I met Katerina and Maria and were treated to a botanical tour despite the language barrier! We were then treated to the most spectacular sunset we have ever seen!! I had the privilege of photographing this lovely place and fantastic hostesses. We were so enamored of our hostesses and what this part of Sardinia had to offer that with the help of the Hotel Orlando front desk, we changed our outbound ferry and stayed an extra night. They brought a snack to our room the first evening and we enjoyed steak and pasta in the hotel restaurant on night two. Wine and food was as good as any 5 star restaurant!!! I just can't say enough about this beautiful place and the ladies who own it. I hope to have the pleasure of coming back some day. Our connection to Katerina and Maria was so strong that they cried when we left....we knew we were truly wanted and had been given a special treat and made new friends!!

Having read all the magnificent reviews of the Orlando, I am afraid I could only just humbly re-confirm and support the highest rating of this place. Our (albeit, 1-night only) stay proved Orlando to be the best hotel we stayed in Sardinia, and it just beats anything else because it is just different, and incomparable with the rest of the crowd.

Hotel Orlando makes for a peaceful stay in a magnificent setting of mountains and natural beauty. The hotel itself is tastefully appointed and decorated with many pieces of artwork reflecting Sardinia's history and cultural traditions. The staff are diligent and friendly . The food is tasty and appetising with a wonderful waiter.
Although the weather was too cool for swimming in the pool, this area is very attractive with white furniture , hammocks and recliners. The bedrooms are very clean and attractive with wooden flooors and beamed ceilings. You can also go for walks in the surrounding woodland, hire bikes, go riding etc.,

Wonderful stay at the Hotel Orlando! We were there for one night and wish we had stayed longer. The hotel rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed our dinner and breakfast. The breakfast room especially had lovely decor, but the hotel in general is filled with art. They were also finishing their new pool and spa areas, which looked really nice. The grounds are beautiful, surrounded by large trees and trails that you can explore, and the drive up to Villagrande had scenic views of the mountains.The hotel owners and staff were incredibly nice, hospitable and helpful, and we had a great time chatting with them and learning more about Sardinia. Overall it was a wonderful and relaxing stay and we absolutely would go back. Strongly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Sardinia and we look forward to our return!
