Best Beach Hotels in Sardinia

Maria and I love beaches, hours spent snoozing in the sun and floating about in turquoise seas.

Once the hard work is done we like to return to a hotel where we can enjoy a sunset cocktail, a great dinner (is there any other in Italy) and then fall asleep, in a lovely comfortable bed, to the sound of the sea.

This page is all about our discoveries. It would be great if you too could share your experiences with us! See bottom of page for details.

My Favorite Hotels in Sardinia

The Hotel Bue Marino

Cala Gonone SardiniaHotel Bue Marino

This Hotel is one of the best beach hotels Sardinia can offer. It is right on the beach in Cala Gonone, facing onto the Gulf of Orosei. Nothing too fancy and expensive but warm and welcoming; frankly when I'm on a beach holiday with the family I prefer it that way.

The location makes it the perfect place to get a boat to one of the best beaches in Sardinia. Boats leave from the little port which is only 5 minutes away from the hotel and they've all the info you need on getting a boat or hiking to the nearer beaches.  If you need anything else then Paola, the owner, is a great source of information.

The whole hotel was completely refurbished a few years back and though it is only 3 stars very few 4 star hotels in Sardinia are as good. 

Rooms are modern and comfortable, many having spectacular sea views. The terrace restaurant and the terrace bar in particular have great views over the entire gulf, where you can enjoy traditional Sardinian cooking, or a cocktail, while watching the sunset. 

Try the fish dishes and the desserts, which are often traditional family recipes. They have a good wine list too with some lovely local wines which are worth trying.

After dinner go up to the roof and enjoy the view of the beach lit up, it is truly dreamy and so very romantic.

This hotel is definitely one of the best beach hotels in Sardinia - utterly charming. Click here for more reviews of this hotel. 

Tip: If you do visit make sure you try the Pescatore Restaurant, near the Cala Gonone port, for at least one lunch or dinner - we have always eaten really well there and the seafood is superb.

Hotel dei Pini in Alghero

Hotel Dei Pini

The Hotel dei Pini is situated on a private beach -  next to the stunning Porto Conte nature reserve.

The hotel is a great resort in Sardinia for those with kids.  Actually, it is great for everybody!

The rooms are very pleasant and spotlessly clean and everything about the place seems to fill your very soul with lightness, brightness and happiness.

I really like the food in the restaurant too. It is mostly traditional Sardinian with a few Italian dishes and the pasta is al dente so, if you like al soggy or prefer steak and chips, then perhaps this is not the ideal hotel.

I know that isn't you though and I know you'll love the wonderful local cuisine .

The hotel is about 5 or 6 miles from Alghero town and has shuttles to take you into town and back.

An ideal hotel for a relaxing holiday in magnificent surroundings.

Resort Le Dune Village The family and I had a fantastic time here. The kids, 5 and 8, were really in their element. We sent them off with the kid's club everyday and the result was perfect peace for us and happy children.

Al Saraceno A really serene and relaxing atmosphere. Not a big hotel but a lovely setting. Clean and modern with the most helpful and friendly staff. Great price too.

Hotel Su Barchile in Orosei Just a note to tell you that the Hotel/Restaurant Su Barchile in Orosei Sardinia should be at the top of your list of the beach hotels Sardinia offers. Click here to read more of this review.
