Grand Hotel Smeraldo Beach
Ranked #6 of 22 Hotels in Baia Sardinia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Just come back from a fantastic week at this hotel. It's perfect for relaxing, the food was delicious, staff very friendly and efficient, the views were magnificent. Its very worth getting a sea view room and the hotel interior is typical italian decor and offers a real Italian experience. The pools were lovely and refreshing. The town of baia has lovely restaurants and beach. Loved this hotel and the location would definitely come back.

This could be a great hotel. The location is superb. The food, service, gardens, pools and grounds are lovely. The local village with restaurants, bars and a great sandy beach is a short walk away. The only disappointment are the old fashioned bedrooms with worn out carpet and dated bathrooms.

Wonderful 2 weeks in excellent hotel:food-delicious, staff-friendly and efficient, cleanliness-perfect, towels changed daily & bedlinen alternate days. carpets keep the rooms quiet (no clacking heels above). The style of the hotel is 'Provencal' and suits the island, Added to that, the views were amazing, the sea pleasant to swim in and the sun shone all day, every day -AND we had wonderful sunsets! The many steps in the beautiful grounds could cause problems for people with walking difficulties.

Great views, fantastic food - food most likely the best part of this hotel, BUT, the hotel is really old fashioned, air con in rooms is a bit weak and the general decor in this hotel is frankly old -1970's style, really needs a refurbishment. The rooms look like something from an old film set,

Also, everything is an extra, so bottled water costs about 6 euros, even if you are half board. Wi fi is not included, about 4 euros for fifteen mins. For the cost of staying here, you'd expect wi fi to be included.

I want to be fair here, it might be the case that a lot of the above comments could equally apply to other hotels near to this one as they all looked a bit dated.

Food excellent beach Devine however rooms are shabby and in dire need of redecoration . Our family were given 4 rooms overlooking the Parking lot! This is not what you expect after traveling thousands of miles for a dream vacation. Rooms do not have tea or coffee making facilities. our carpet was dirty - and stained and cupboard musty. So think carefully before you book this hotel - and if you do be prepared to pay for a sea view room otherwise you will really be better off staying at home

A lovely beach hotel with a lovely garden and many splash pools. Plenty of secret corners to sunbathe and lots of space to relax. Good food and very nice and attentive staff. Short walk to small and beautiful village of Baia Sardinia. Wonderful terrace to finish the day with the most outstanding scenic sea views - sunsets to die for! Full amenities, but beds and pillows far to hard.

The location of this hotel is quite stunning with large well presented public areas and a series of beautiful pools terraced down to the private beach. Rooms are fairly basic, beds and pillows are very firm and a sea view is really essential. We were there mid May with variable weather and the season not really under way. Whole resort quiet and customers mainly coach touring groups.Staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast very "continental" and not a good standard. Evening menu limited but of decent quality. Anyway lots of good restaurants within walking distance.
Could do with a more varied pre and post dinner musical entertainment. However compared with the high priced five star hotels on the Costa Smeraldo this is good value. We will go back.

Room Tip: Sea view essential. As hotel is north facing balconies get little sun. Those in left wing (looking f...
