“Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We stayed here at the beginning of June and had an excellent time - couldn't fault the hotel at all.

First off the hotel allowed us a free upgrade to a suite, as we had originally booked a standard room. The suite was lovely - very spacious.

The hotel grounds are beautiful, very well kept, and the pool and spa were great. Despite the hotel being fairly full, we quite often had the pool and spa entirely to ourselves.

The food is absolutely delicious, and the restaurant very well run by the Maitre D'.

Part of why we chose this hotel was the shuttle service offered to the hotel's private beach (very nice) and the town of Baia Sardinia, as we were travelling without a car. This service was great, and the driver was available to transport us on demand.

All in all I cannot rate this hotel highly enough - we had a perfect holiday here and would definitely love to return.

Stayed here for a week last week of June and really enjoyed it. We enjoyed the pool and beach, cleanliness of the hotel and the restaurant. The excellent maitre D. really had a hand on everything and made us feel well taken care of. As a family with minor children, the location was fine, but understand that it is not made for those seeking entertainment, as there are none. The eating area in the basement was also a little dull. I believe that other hotels can provide some better value for money as it is rather expensive. We had a sea view Jr. Suite, but there wasn't much sea to see. Regardsless, we enjoyed our stay, as we got the tranquility we were looking for.

Disappointment....this is the girlfriend (who insisted on staying at a spa and paying for it and typing a review on a mac which is hideous in comparison to a PC) writing. First and foremost ladies if you book a spa hotel you expect a massage to be relaxing (rather than being herded in to a room without a word and told to don paper pants). The massage was rubbish (although 'Benjamin' obviously thoroughly enjoyed it as inexperienced in the world of 'spas'). Walking out without a word after a massage is, in my view, rude and leaves one somewhat confused as to what to do next....do you just get up and leave or wait until the return of the aloof masseuse?

The spa in itself is good fun...especially check out the bizarre series of shower 'experiences' - like walking over a cobbled street in a strangely lit red light district with varying degrees of hot and cold steam/shower arrangements!

The pool area was stunning (if a little chilly in October) but brings the star rating up substantially.

The room was disappointing. REALLY uncomfortable beds (seriously, I almost resorted to sleeping on the cold tiled floor or the inexplicably small shower!). No bath - what is going on in Sardinia...? Seriously, I expected a hot tub (or at least a bath). If you are a size 6 you will get in the shower (fairly) comfortably and be able to wash your hair. If you are a size 8 you will struggle.

The balcony was awesome and offered an amazing view. The beach was actually out of this world! Private beach with an AMAZING restaurant, fit for a queen. Windy in October but still stunning and very romantic.

BEWARE of the marvel of the accordion! Not sure whether this is a year round event or whether we were just unlucky but wherever it was, it was audible!!

No internet available outside of the reception area.

Prosecco in abundance.

Food good and forthcoming but have had better.

Altogether, I could have spent 2 nights in a 5* resort in the Maldives for the same price! Not impressed.

My views may have been softer (less angered) if the prices had not been so steep (and I am not tight!).....

Room Tip: Dont waste your money on spa treatments.

My wife and i spent 10 wonderful days at this fantastic hotel. We had a one bedroom suit to ourselves with a view to the sea. The service was just superb, we had breakfast in bed every day and it was brought by the Matre D and a waiter, they laid it all out on our little terrace outside, it was always hot and fresh. The pool is lovely to swim in and the service around the pool was first class. The hotels restaurant although buffet in style served some excellent food. The suckling pig one evening was mouth watering.

We loved our stay at Hotel La Rocca. I was very nervous booking this hotel because I strictly went off what people said about the hotel, needless to say we were sooooo satisfied! I will admit I am a very picky person when it comes to hotels, and I searched far and wide for the perfect stay for our honeymoon, and this was a perfect choice.Regardless, of any negative comments I have read about the hotel, the good reviews overpowered the bad. The customer service was great, they answered all of our questions and helped us with any request we needed. The private beach was great, the driver would pick you up and drop you off anytime which was a great plus. the beach was about a 5 min drive but walking would be alittle tough, plus it was very hot. Being of italian descent, the food was AWESOME!!!!! Everything we ate was sooo good and tasty!! I can still taste all the great pasta we had. We had a appetizer buffet, choice of 1st plate which is usual pasta and chioce of 2nd plate which would consist of a meat,fish or chicken. YummY!!! The waiters were all so very nice. We went to porto cervo one night and took the bus which was a 10 ride, very nice!! another day the hotel driver dropped us off at a near by beach Baja Sardinia which had shops and restaurants on the beach, very nice!! and when we were done they came to pick us up. Very Accomodating!! If you are thinking of staying here, please do, it was sooo nice and relaxing. The rooms were so clean!!! I am sooo particular when it comes to the cleaniness of a hotel room. Again we had an amazing time, I was soo sad to leave and i can't wait to go back to La Rocca!!! Fantastic!

Nice hotel to stay at the Costa Smeralda. The hotel itself is beautiful, rooms big and lovely. Good breakfast, although dinner is not great. We stayed at half board for 4 nights and regretted. However, lunch in the beach bar is a much better quality, but on the expensive side. The swimming pool is nice and big, with a good relaxation area, its 2m deep. There is also a spa.

The beach is nice - maybe not the most beautiful lagoon, but the water is clear, beach clean, people comfortably spaced out. The beach bar is just behind, with some sunbeds on the little terrace above the beach itself for those who find it too windy.

Good: lovely rooms, nice beach and swimming pool

Bad: food for dinner is average, beach not really accessible on foot (although only 2mins drive). Basement restarant for dinner - not so nice, however they told us there would be a big terrace next year

We chose this hotel for our 10th wedding anniversary. There are plenty of reasons to choose this hotel though there are a few things they need to work on for it to be rated "Excellent" and a true 4-start hotel.

First the hotel's garden exterior is a pure oasis in among Sardenia's many olive trees and cacti. The welcoming staff at reception were very warm and helpful. The restaurant staff went above and beyond the call of duty. The women in charge at the restaurant was extremely professional, appeared well-respected by her colleagues and went out of her way to make our anniversary extra special. They all worked incredibly hard (same team for the early-morning breakfast, lunch and dinner shifts for the weekdays and weekends).
The Spa was the best one we've ever been to. On the hottest days we sought refuge in the multiple temperature rooms (Sauna, Turkish bath, thalassotherapy room -- all with relaxing scents and music). The variety of scented showers was the ultimate highlight.
We paid extra for two massages, a foot massage and a facial. The talented masseuse, while she didn't speak English or French, was able to understand our broken Italian. She was very good and we recommend her services.
The beach was a short drive away and was clean with the sun-beds. The lunch service was as good as the hotel with a variety of excellent selections.
The rooms were clean and the early evening turn-down service (with new towels for the beach and the bathroom) was much appreciated.

There are a few, simple things the hotel needs to improve that we've seen in other 4-star hotels:
A vanity mirror in the bathroom, better storage area for toiletries, installing a full-length mirror in the room, providing different pillows with a variety of hardness and softness, better signage for the reception parking and the main parking lot.

Room Tip: The beach is still a small distance away so a sea view room, we felt, was as good as the mountain vi...
