“Wonderful hospitality, food, wine, watersports and scenery ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2011

My wife and I have just returned from having spent a week at Le Dune and we absolutely loved it. It's a family run laid-back 3 star hotel with huge charm and high quality where it counts (i.e. service, food & wine). Rooms are not huge but are very clean and comfortable with and in our case offered incredible views over Porto Pollo. We are keen kitesurfers and windsurfers and loved being able to take a short walk from the hotel each day down through the dunes and on along the beach to where there are numerous places to rent equipment. This is a really special hotel over looking an extremely beautiful bay. The owners and staff were so warm and welcoming throughout our stay. Sea swimming was fantastic (for no-wind days). Wonderful holiday.

We were staying at a self-catering place nearby and Hotel "Le Dune" became our favourite place to eat out.

Their "Porto Pollo soup" was delicious - full of tasty seafood and the wine list was excellent and expertly served.

We would definitely recommend this as an eating place without hesitation - sorry I can't comment on the accommodation which is the only reason I haven't given it top marks.

Stayed there for a week. Friendly staff, great atmosphere.
The beach is not too busy which is quite a rarity for sardinia. Great spot for wind / kitesurfing.

Hotel Le Dune in Porto Pollo is a delighful family run hotel with friendly and polite staff and a most magnificent view over the bay of Porto Pollo. We spent twelve days at the hotel on Half board basis and our room was spacious, clean, with an extremely comfortable Kingsize bed and a beautiful view over the bay. During our stay we had several changes of linen and towels. Continental breakfast offered on the terrace consisted of a choice of tea, coffee, bread, cold meats, croissants, jam, marmalade, honey and a choice of muesli and cereals. Every morning during breakfast, we were shown the Half Board dinner menu and had to select our four courses, and each course had a choice of three dishes. Extras could be ordered from the main menu and we found the restaurant staff extremely helpful and polite. The restaurant also offers a fine wine list. A two minutes walk down a hill leads to the magnificent large and long sandy beach of Porto Pollo which is popular with wind surfers and also has a school of wind surfing for beginners. The boat trip which takes place every wednesday took us to some of the most spectacular beaches we'd ever seen and we were collected from the beach below the hotel.
A most enjoyable holiday which we will gladly repeat next year.

Great location, beside glorious beach and waves (with surfing sailing and diving schools etc). Super helpful & friendly hotel service + a great restaurant overlooking the sea.

Porto pollo is a fantastic site for wind and kite surfing enthusiasts with fantastic beaches.

Unfortunately rhere is little in the way of local accommodation other than that aimed at the surf community and travellers. Hotel Le Dune sits atop a hill overlooking th beaches, next to some apartments of similar standard.

The rooms were very small but clean, air con, microscopic tv which wasnt used. It brings to mind the sort of digs i had as a student in the 80's, except im no longer 18 and will put up with it. The restaurant was adequate but expensive.

We only stayed one night (180 euros in total with an a la carte evening meal) then moved on to a more pleasant enviroment then drove back to use the beach.

If you dont mind the rotten rooms and price, its a perfect location for the beach.
