“awesome place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

Hotel Pop is a great place with a great location! We stayed at the top floor and had an excellent sea view! The food is good and the staff is really friendly. Boat excursions leave literally from the doorstep. I would definitely go back. Cala Gonone is a fantastic holiday choice!

We stayed there for one night. Our room was simple, functional and clean with a nice balcony with view on the harbor and sea.

Pitty was the evening at the restaurant. The service was not really careful (wrong water, forgot to bring wine list..) after that we experienced a problem with some oysters, we went discretely in to the restaurant because we didn't want to scare other guests eating oysters next to us about the freshness... ( some time you just get a bad one... )

To our sober and polite complain the answer of the manager was simply: it's not possible! .. But it can be......
We did not get any apologise at all and we still had to wait almost 5 minutes to get some new oysters ( this time they where great an fresh ).

What to say: Just an unprofessional behavior form the manager and maitre as well that made our dinner there the worst experience in all Sardinia.

Also the price was really high, nearby you can eat cheaper and much better.!

we had no choice but to stay here as all other hotels we could find were shut. a walking holiday here is great and this is a good base. it met all our needs, hot water, beds, and a really nice view over the harbour out to sea. only one restaurant open so limited choice. price was really good and bearing everything in mind I would recommend it.

paid about €55 for a double which was average for the season.
Good friendly place, bit basic inside, but had a security safe and a great view.
Ample breakfast with a pleasant busy vibe to the hotel.
Really friendly and helpful staff.
Cala Gonone has loads of hotels but most are very expensive offering little value.
Hotel Pop makes its mark by being an honest busy working hotel.
Theres about a 1square metre of internet downstairs.

As a side point, hotels suggested by the tourist office were all wildly inaccurate in terms of price and contain newer 'hotel' types looking to take some the tourist cash but dont offer any quality in return.

Wasnt sure what to expect as mixed reviews, but was only staying a night here on 'road trip'. Booked due to the food reviews and the hotel run boat excursion. Unfortunately the weather put paid to the boat trip, but I can vouch the food was as excellent as previous reviews have stated - so much so that we came back the next day for another meal. The rooms were clean and a good size with a small balcony for views of the marina. Comfortable beds and powerful showers. Easy walking distance to the marina (right in front of the hotel) and beaches. Staff/owner very pleasant and helpful. there is limited free parking outside the hotel and a pay car park at the marina.

We stayed at Hotel Pop in July 2010 for 2 nights. We wanted to stay for additional nights, a decision we made very quickly after we arrived very late and had a smallish dinner (they actually kept the kitchen open for us as we didn’t arrive until after 11pm) but the place was booked solid.
The room we were given was actually the closest one to the lift on the first floor which was presumably the loudest. In saying that we were happy with the size and cleanliness of the room. All very acceptable. The free internet access was available in the room. There was also a small balcony however you could not see the sea from here even though this is literally across the street. Perhaps some of the other rooms on the next level can see a peek of this.
We also went on the Hotel speed boat trip. At under 40 Euros per person this is definitely worth doing as you get to go to all the remote beaches only accessible by boat and also a few small coves where we were the only people there. The lunch that you get is also massive, we were told to take some additional food as well just in case, but there was no need to – there was so much food and drink and also a nice glass of bubbly to be had at one of the secluded stop off places! We went on a day when there was one other couple, their daughter and the family of the owners. We felt like we were just on a family day out which was really special. Also after going on a number of other boat trips around Sardinia and Europe afterwards this was definitely the best value.
Like the other comments as well the restaurant is amazing. Food is superb. My wife had the lemon veal and after that she always compared others around Italy with this place. They never matched up.
All in all a great location, friendly staff and superb restaurant - definitely recommend.

I made a late online booking through the internet the night before a 3 night stay at Hotel Pop. When I arrived I was told that they were actually overbooked but had a good relationship with an adjacent hotel, which was actually a step above their hotel, but I would pay the same price. I was given a ride with my luggage to that hotel. However, this review is more about the restaurant. I had 3 meals at the RESTAURANT attached to Hotel Pop and the food was INCREDIBLE. The chef, Simone is truly gifted. The food was Sardinian fare but innovative with an Asian flare to it The service and staff were wonderful and friendly. The meal was always accompanied by a complimentary glass of prosecco and as I was a solo traveler and diner, I was made to feel like a princess there. The last day I asked to see their rooms and the room looked great.
