Stopped for three nights as a taste of Sardinia after touring Corsica. Wanted a base for La Maddalena islands and Palau is just that. Hotel is just a few yards from the car ferry for La Maddalena town and for the small tour boats that go round the islands. Ditto bus stop.
Hotel is good value (in October !) for a four star hotel. All staff very helpful and spoke good English. Room spacious and well appointed, bed very comfortable. Breakfast was very good and included in price (unlike Corsica hotels !) and held in a separate pleasant sunny room.
Unusually for a such a hotel they don't do full meals although they have a coffee bar. Plenty of choice of restaurants nearby though. Layout of Palau is rather strange in that the main restaurant & bar strip is separated from the harbour by a large car park - ambience suffers somewhat !
