Reviewed August 1, 2013

Stayed here 20 July for four nights in room 222 room had small balcony with amazing sea views.
The balconies are very open and close to neighbouring guests, trees have been planted so when they are established the area will be a little more private. But we used the balcony with no issues throughout our stay.
The hotel is spotless good bedroom, large comfy bed, modern bathroom with complimentary toiletries, tv in room with Italian channels.
The breakfast was very good and was taken on the terrace next to the pool with the most amazing views.
Pool was great place to relax, pool side drink service available.
The staff were fantastic full of information and always willing to help.
Walk into town 5-10 mins and took 10-15 minutes on way back uphill. Anybody with walking difficulties would need to drive into town which is few minutes by car.
Loved everything about this place and had fantastic trip and will definitely return.

Room Tip: The rooms right at front overlooking pool have biggest balcony and view but not sure if they were of...

We spent considerable time trawling online to find a decent hotel. Without repeating the comments of other travellers I'll specifically mention our experience with a 3 year old.

Staff
The two ladies - Paola and Christina couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, everyone else was very pleasant too. The daily dose of sweets lead to my daughter standing by the desk and waiting

Pool
Perfect with 1/3 shallow and clearly divided, that was just perfect and we saw it being cleaned daily. Ideal for small children.

Going to the beach
They have two bins with umbrellas and toys in - again, an absolute must and good of them to provide them.


Food
Breakfast was simple with nice fresh fruit. Don't expect bacon and eggs, but you probably wouldn't want it anyway with the wonderful view. Evening was also good and no trouble just to have some simple pasta and cheese made up for our daughter.


Room
Quite simple for 4*, but everything was good. My only (tiny) criticism would be the shower needed a hook to hang it on, rather being hand held.

I'd recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in 305, it was a good size for the 3 of us

Modern hotel on the hillside overlooking Cala Gonome and the sea,
We stayed in a prestige room which was adequate, but nothing special. The 'balcony' was very small with a pleasant view over the garden and mountains behind the hotel. You could pay extra for a sea-view room, but there are plenty of places to sit and admire the sea and pool view so why pay extra unless you're planning to spend most of your holiday in your room? Overall we enjoyed our stay, the staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The organisation of breakfast, particularly the clearing/cleaning of tables was impressively prompt. We didn't eat at the hotel opting for the splendid range of restaurants in the town. Walking into town is ok, but the walk back is seriously steep and, in 30 degrees plus high humidity, isn't for everybody!
A couple of niggles: the shower temperature wasn't stable alternating between scalding and freezing. There is no wifi in the room which is disappointing for a hotel of this type and the wifi hot spot was unreliable not working for 2 of our 4 night stay.

The views from the pool, breakfast area, bar area are lovely and looking at these was a great way to start each day. The staff are very friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for them. They have plenty of beach equipment (towels, umbrellas, etc) for guests to borrow. A 15 min walk into town is pleasant (although the walk up the hill on the way home is steep). Poolside drinks service was appreciated, as well as the ability to use the facilities on the day of check out. Breakfast was simple, but nice produce, and the plates of breakfast were constantly replaced, even close to the end of the breakfast service.

Shower (water pressure) was not very good. The rooms are simple, yet comfortable.

Room Tip: If possible, I would book a room with a sea view. All sea rooms have a balcony and chairs to enjoy t...

This is a beautiful hotel in Cala Gonone...in my opinion the best in the area. We stayed in the Cala Goloritze room and the view was stunning. The hotel pretty much offers this stunning view from all it's communal areas. It's located on top of a hill a minutes drive and a few minutes walk to the town centre. We used a car so can't comment on the uphill climb back to the hotel but it is steep.
Rooms are very clean and the bathrooms spotless with good toiletries provided. The breakfast is varied and we really loved it. There are no hot choices available. This really wasnt a problem for us though.
The best part about this hotel are the staff. Paola, her husband and Christina are so friendly and nice. As soon as we arrived Paola gave us a map of the area and the beaches nearby. She also gave us directions on how to get to the beaches. We hassled her with the silliest of problems (Some not even hotel related) and she took care of them always with a smile. The reception can also organise tours if u want them to.
We ate dinner once at the hotel and the food though good was nothing extra ordinary. It was however the most expensive meal we had in Cala Gonone. I would suggest trying the various other eating places in the town centre.
We would definitely be recommending this hotel...wonderful experience.

Beautiful small, family-run hotel with unmatched location and views over Gulf of Orosei. Worth staying for the view alone. Rooms are simple but comfortable - but I highly recommend one of the deluxe Goloritze rooms with sea-view. Worth every penny! Staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Signora Paola. Breakfast is the usual "continental" with plenty of variety and fresh food. Dinner is good although there are plenty of alternatives in Cala Gonone and further afield. The short walk downhill to the marina is easy - coming back is harder but so useful to get rid of the extra calories you are bound to put on. Even for us (at 70) it is about 20 mins uphil, but hard work! Driving is simple but parking in the town not always easy during high season. Very highly recommended!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a full sea view - well worth the extra cost and you will not regret it.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at this wonderful property last spring, and I can't say enough good about Paola, Christina and the Villa Gustui Maris. The setting is perfect, with breathtaking views over the Gulf of Orosei. The rooms are comfortable and of above average size for hotels across Italy. I recommend one of the Deluxe Goloritze rooms for the fantastic views and wide balcony. Although we spent most evenings in other parts of the island, we did have a multi-course seafood dinner on property, and it was fantastic. As others have mentioned, there is a longer, steep walk into town- but just jump in the car for a minute or two and you're there. That certainly isn't a reason to stay anywhere else.

The staff recommended a number of restaurants and activities during our stay, and everything they pointed us towards was worth the time and money. A day spent on our own, piloting a small boat between the secluded cliff-side beaches on the gulf of Orosei is one of the most enjoyable memories we've ever had.

Sardinia is a stunning island, and when we return we will certainly pay another visit to Villa Gustui Maris.

Room Tip: Reserve one of the Deluxe Cala Goloritze rooms for extra space and an amazing blacony view.
