“What a ripoff !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We arrived at this hotel with my wife at 8am. Of course the room was not ready, which was not a surprise.

We have been offered to have breakfast in the hotel. It was average at best with decent food and plastic glasses.

We then have been offered to use the swimming pool. They took us to change in the… toilets. No kidding, 1’200 Euros per night and they take you to change in the toilets!

On a general note, the hotel looks like big beach resort, low quality, and no charm.
The beach is a crowded public beach with no service what so ever and plastic chairs.
We had the matrimonial room which was small and the bathroom was minuscule and very dirty.

Stay away from this hotel…

Was the first stop on our honeymoon (July 2010) and was so disappointing that we checked out the same night. We were given a room the size of a cupboard practically. 2 people plus our 2 medium suitcases couldn't fit! Room was very very dark with a loft ceiling that dropped down quite steeply so you only had a tiny bit of high ceiling. Maybe we got unlucky, but since they knew we were honeymooners they really should have accommodated us better. We found this place to be extremely extremely overrated! Don't be fooled by their pics, websites and ads.

Had a sea facing room for 9 nights and enjoyed every moment. Perfect location to access places like Palau, Santa Teresa di Gallura, Romazzino, and others (note: Sardinia requires a rental car). The hotel staff was always helpful in making our dinner reservations and assisting in our excursion planning. Don't bother with the hotel's private beach area; the beach on the opposite side is fantastic and the pool staff will gladly provide a lift to it in a golf cart. It wraps around a cove with plenty of room for beachgoers and is probably only about 5 feet deep of crystal clear water 75 yards out to sea. Pools are amazing; the hotel restaurant was surprisingly excellent; breakfast and lunch buffets are extremely convenient.

If I had to knit-pick, the hot water heater was unpredictable and didn't make for pleasant showers (going from your desired temperature to burning hot every few minutes). The general manager was aware of the issue and had maintenance working on it though. Also, wasps nest in the downstairs dining area columns and made for some nervous breakfasts while dodging their flight paths. Neither of these would deter me from returning.

Hotel architecture is simple like all buildings at Porto Cervo but it is really a luxury hotel.
We had breakfast and lunch at the hotel , those were perfect . Swimming pools are very good.
Hotel has a private section at the beach,thats is very good as well. Hotel personal were very professional. We are very satisfied with this Hotel . I absolutely recommend this hotel to everyone.

We were at the Colonna Pevero Hotel and we loved the place. We had a great time, the beach was clean and uncrowded, staff was cooperative and sincere, and management was interested in making sure everyone had a good stay. You have to walk to the beach to find restaurants other than the hotel buffet. Free hot breakfast was great and the hotel was conveniently located and a shuttle get you to downtown in few minutes. Best buy at the Piazzetta shops

We stayed in july at at colonna pevero ,looking after 5 star hotel and services and the great Sardinian sea at an affordable price(compared with romazzino for example) .On the web the beach was depicted as ''close'' but was quite a walk through a parking lot and a dirt road.The beach was public even if they stated is private,just few lines with chairs for the hotel ;no services ,no water ,towels ,nothing.The sea water is very shallow long distance from the shore is not that sardinian blue and in july was full of algae.
The other beach realy public in pevero golf has a wonderful cristaline water but is owercrowded with all kind of people and of course no services at all for the hotel.
Breakfast
Was on the cheap side not a really 5 star hotel breakfast.
lunch
was included as halfboard ,again cheap and limited as options.
service
the waiters bored to death by us ''tourists'' and sometimes with a rude attitude
Pools
anyway it is stupid to have a seaside holiday and spend time at the pool but whe did due to the fact that the beach was a deception.
So the pools not heated and cold for my taste 22 degrees C ,full of chlorine .
Rooms
Whe had a suite, nice and clean but very poorly sound proofed, whe could hear every moves from the hallway and from the neighbours .
They claim they offer wifi but was really slow and unreliable.
Spa
nice and cosy, I payed around 120 eur for a massage and a lady barely touched me for this money .
As a conclusion ,nice and clean hotel ,whithout charm and warmth;you need a car to move arround and visit Porto Cervo.For me, waist of money better stayed at a 4 star hotel and spend the rest of the money renting a boat to enjoy the sea.
