“Lovely family hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

We spent a week here in July 2012 with our 14-month old son. A very comfortable hotel that suited our needs perfectly. Room very clean, with everything we needed and space to accommodate a cot. Staff very friendly; food perfectly adequate. Only slight complaints would be that the restaurant had a bit of a canteen atmosphere (though staff could not have been more helpful) and air con in room couldn't be turned to less than 22 degrees. But all in all, a great place for a family holiday

Stayed July 2012, traveled with family

Blu Hotel Morisco is a very nice 4-star hotel and a good place for the family vacation. The hotel was built in 2008 and still looks new and beautiful - and it is kept very clean. It is a safe and friendly environment with space for children to play. For us as Danes, it was very interesting to experience the very Italian style holiday. There is a strong time structure each day and schedules are kept, and so are the hotel’s rules. The 5-6 entertainers are very good and so motivated and we really enjoyed the Italian ballads/pop-songs before dinner and later in the evening. The restaurant at Blu Hotel Morisco serves delicious Italian food, which expanded our understanding of the Italian cuisine. We recommend having a rental car available; there is much to see on the Costa Smeralda. There is free parking inside the gate to the hotel.

My husband and I are a young couple looking for a quiet getaway. the hotel was great for families with young children, not really a romantic getaway. However, we hired a car at the airport and use to drive to the quieter areas.

There isn't much of a nightlife, there are a few bars nearby and a daily evening market which is great for a few little bits of jewellery etc. for a few more promenades etc you're better off going to nearby proto cervo.

The hotel is clean and spacious, the pool is big and has a great atmosphere in the daytime, there are a few staff nearby for entertainment who keep the kiddies busy. You have to wear a swimming cap if you're going to get into the water, these are available form reception for 1 euro. we stayed on a half board basis which included breakfast and dinner, both my husband and I are vegetarians so this is usually an issue. at Blu Morisco breakfast can be a little repetitive, the usual toast, cereal, yoghurt, no beans unfortunatleym which my other half wasnt too happy about! Dinner was a mix of mediterranean salad (olives, pickles, roast veg), there are plenty of options for non veg, we had to have pasta everyday (however we didnt stay in the hotel for dinner everyday so wasnt too bad). the hotel put on enetertainment in the evening whoch finished at about 10.30-11 for the kiddies and live singing.

Most of the tourists were from mainland Italy or Germany, not many of them spoke English apart from the reception staff who were very friendly (Particularly Sonya, Anna and Roberto). there is a daily traim that goes to the nearby beach every half hour and costs 2 euros per person. we used this on one day but found other beaches that were more beautiful. Of course costa esmerelda was beautiful but we [referred baia Sardinia beach with soft white sand and clear water, also there were nice outdoor cafes or lunch/dinner overlooking the beach which were good value for money and had great food.

Hiring a car was a good idea if you want to explore ther beaches, once you get use to driving on the opposite side of the road the directions are fairly easy and everything is sign posted quite well.

Room Tip: get a pool view room.

This hotel does deserve its four stars for the facilities it has on offer and the cleanliness of the entire place, including the immaculate grounds, but in terms of the location and food it's more 3 star than 4.
We arrived at the hotel last Monday afternoon after a two and a half hour transfer (beware deals like ours which incorporate a flight into Alghero instead of Olbia, as it's 180kms drive!) and at first we were disappointed with the hotel's location in a small town but away from any beach or harbour. However, we soon found that these are only a short walk away and easily reached.
The hotel has its sister Blu Baia hotel next door and this offers a much quieter pool area and grounds which give a blessed relief from the noise and bustle of the Morisco's pool whiich being high season had lots of children. The food at the Baia looks to be a level above the Morisco, which tries hard with its huge buffet array to cater for all nationalities, plus all of those kids - as a result the food in the main is ok but not particularly good or very Italian. Note, the restaurant staff start to clear away well in advance of the published closing time, so if you snooze, you loose!
All in all, a good hotel with excellent staff, in a smallish town on a beautiful island with hundreds of safe beaches.

Room Tip: Many rooms on the back of the buildings ovelook the noisy pool area - room 221 is a good bet!

AI have been back only few weeks from this 5 days break and must say I liked the hotel.
The only thing that needs improvement is the food, as quantity, quality, variety.
Found that the dishes were quite small and some of the dishes were not enough for all the guests, so some had to look while others were eating.
Also the staff doesn't try to speak another language, I was there while there were guests from other countres and the animators only connected with the italian speaking guest.

Just back from a one week stay and it was a lovely, relaxing break. As I'm due to have a baby in a couple of months we wanted something quite low key and chilled out (not the usual packed, sight seeing holidays we have) and this was perfect.

The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the port where you can buy boat tickets around some nearby islands. This is well worth it, 40 euros each for the whole day out and if you want lunch on the boat it's an extra 5 euros.

There's plenty of restaurants nearby for lunch (we were there half board) and a supermarket and bank close by too.

The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and only too happy to help. We had to leave at 6.30am and they opened the restaurant for us just so we could get a drink and some biscuits! They also helped book a car for us to hire for the day (we went to Arzachena and saw some archaeological sites).

The pool is very clean (although too cold to go in when we were there!) but take your own towel as you'll have to hire one from the hotel otherwise. They make you wear a cap too... These are available from reception for a euro.

Breakfast and dinner was pleasant enough. Buffets for both and whilst the breakfast menu was standard (toast, boiled/scrambled eggs, bacon, juice, pastries etc...) dinner was different each day we were there. My husband is vegetarian and there was something for him to choose from everyday.

The rooms were comfortable and the big enough.

I'd go back if I just wanted to relax. And we're going to look into where else there are other Blu hotels!

Facts: The hotel is sited in the village of Cannigione so no car is required should you just want to chill and relax by the pool or beach. It's spread over 3 floors so isn't a high rise monstrosity. It's an Italian chain hotel so has a very Italian flavour (staff, food, attitudes etc.) - great if that's what you want (we loved it) but not so if you're after mini England (roast dinner, chips, cheap beer, Sky, Rose & Crown). There's a 2 Euro bus train from outside the hotel to a nice beach 20 minutes away - well worth it. Be aware that there is minimal shade there unless you hire the parasol and loungers. While we were there the clientele were mainly Italian, German and Belgians with very few English.

Good points: The grounds are nice and so is the pool. The food is particularly Mediterranean - olives, aubergines, courgettes, fish (you get the idea) with a small German concession (sausages, cooked meats). The staff were all brilliant (reception, cleaning, entertainment, restaurant, bar, pool) - most speaking, apart from Italian, at least one of English, German or French, so no language problems. The staff excelled in entertaining the kids - if you bring any, they won't want to leave. Evening entertainment at the hotel was family based - groups of guests were dancing, singing (in tune, not karoake), playing cards, watching football on TV - almost like a huge family eveing in. Don't take this the wrong way - it was all very low key and fun without it being over earnest like holiday camps. For those after a bit more action, there were bars and restaurants in the village / marina a couple of minutes walk away. Our room was large and perfectly acceptable - be warned that the air conditioning switches off automatically when you open the balcony door (no matter how little).

Bad points: Breakfast a bit repetative but perfectly edible. Air conditioning's coolest setting was 20 celsius - may not be cold enough for some, ok for us. Sardinia isn't cheap but that's not the hotel's fault.

Would I recommend it - definitely.
