Directly on the beach, the Hotel Don Diego rises on a ravishing cove facing the Marin Park of the islands of Tavolara and Molara. All the typical colors and scents of the lush Mediterranean vegetation grows all over the valley surrounding all the buildings. This discreet corner of paradise is the ideal place to go to relax, enjoy the emerald sea and admire romantic golden sunsets. It is a Hotel with immense Charm and a keen attention to detail. The Don Diego will welcome you in his complete quietness and restfulness.

The hotel rooms are very spacious and clean, the restaurant serves very nice food, the included breakfast has a good variety, staff is great and welcoming, beach is beautiful and there are many activities included. The location of the hotel is great, close to great restaurants, and only 20 min away from Olbia’s airport.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in September and loved everything about the Don Diego. Ok, it is rather pricy for what it is (a quirky 4*), but its beautiful location and charming lay-out and interiors ticked all the boxes for us. Staff at reception (Georgia), the restaurant (Paola) and the beach (sorry, I didn’t catch the gentleman’s name; he was there to assign sunbeds and help out with all things beachy) were extremely kind and helpful. Giuan (sorry for the spelling, it was the Sardinian version of Giovanni) was everywhere, always ready to help out with parking, bags and any other logistics. Parking was really easy, by the way, with numerous spaces available above and below reception. We had booked a junior suite and had requested a quiet location with a lovely view of Tavolara island. We were duly assigned suite 410 which had a great location with a gorgeous terrace from which I got stunning sunrise pictures. The village-style lay-out means that you can hear other guests walking past, as well as the cleaning ladies in the morning, but it wasn’t a big issue. Everything about the Don Diego is typically Italian – there are lots of beautiful touches everywhere, from the rustic looking rooms with some very stylish and arty touches, the stunning stain-glass windows and Tiffany lamps in the public areas, the waterfall in reception and the wonderfully well-kept plants and flowers everywhere. Yes, sometimes it is style over substance or functionality but the results are so aesthetically pleasing that they just gladden the heart! Apart from the rustic and slightly “cavy” feel, our room had all mod cons: safe, hairdryer, kettle, mini-bar, make-up mirror, slippers, complimentary water and toiletries and a well-functioning wi-fi. We found the breakfast buffet to be the best of all the hotels we stayed at in Sardinia – there was a large cold meat selection, fresh salmon and the most delicious selection of chocolate and custard-filled pastries. The views from the breakfast terrace were simply stunning and added to the laid-back, “spoil-yourself” experience. We enjoyed one dinner at the hotel restaurant and did not like the (indoor) setting as much. The food, however, was excellent (the service, on the other hand, was slightly disorganised). We had the Spaghetti aglio e vongole and the Culurgiones (local gnocchi) – both were excellent. My husband then enjoyed a very large T-bone steak which came medium rare, just as ordered. I had the seabass with a courgette crust which was both innovative and delicious! The white chocolate and salted almonds desert was an amazing contrast in flavours and simply to die for. We thought the cost of 110 Euro (including two glasses of wine, coffee and a large bottle of water) was justified for what we got. Alternatively, you can always walk along the drive to the main road and enjoy some of the best pizza in Sardinia at Lu Bagnu for a fraction of the price. Both the beach and pool areas were lovely with plenty of sun-loungers available at both (mid-September). There is also a large shower/toilet-changing room area available by the pool which I imagine would come in very useful for guests with late check-out. Given the hotel’s fabulous location only a few miles outside Olbia but within driving distance of some of the most stunning beaches on the island (Cala Brandinchi, la Cinta) we would highly recommend this charming place as a base for exploring the area. We would love to return sometime.

We’ve ‘known’ of this place for some years but always shunned it because of its somewhat ‘old fashioned’ reputation. Spent two nights here (20 minutes from OLB) and had a great time. Yes the layout and style do hark back to the early days of tourism in the north east, but it is now the more interesting for it. Main buildings are the place to stay and not the ‘block’. Stunning views and easy access to the beach and pool. Great breakfast but evening restaurant a bit pricey for the quality. Easy to hire a RHiB from their own harbour and not a rip off. Their BWA boats are ok. Great staff particularly Lucca on reception
