About the location
Set near the northern tip of the island, Baia Sardinia is known for its wide sandy beach and crystal-clear waters. Located within a sheltered cove, this exclusive coastal town looks out to the spectacular Maddalena Archipelago – situated just a short boat ride from the town – and provides a great base from which to explore the Sardinian coastline.
Baia Sardinia’s attractions tend to revolve around the natural beauty of the area, with the beach taking centre stage. Watersports are popular, with sailing and diving among the town’s biggest draws for visitors.
For the young (or young at heart), the nearby Aquadream waterpark provides a good range of thrills, plus there are plenty of delights at Porto Cervo to be enjoyed, including a great museum and the local golf course.
Dining is generally local cuisine, although the luxury hotels dotted around the resort often offer more international fare, sometimes with great views to accompany. Expect to see seafood on most menus – it’s a local speciality thanks to the coastal location.
The hotel is 30 minutes from Olbia airport. We recommend hiring a car in your destination. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.

Just stayed 5 nights in this hotel and we want to raise a flag. Sure, the location is great and the staff is friendly. But there is a lot of maintenance to be done with the hotel to keep it up to standard. It felt like we were in a hotel that had not change anything since 1970.
The food is almost not eatable, we got a really bad creme caramel that was almost like a omelette instead and also made with eggs that had past the expire date with???2-4 weeks!
They are trying to hard to be a gourmet restaurant but they would need to change a lot to become that. To get a pasta with the leftovers tomatoes from the breakfast is not extravagant. Especially when the pasta tastes like nothing, bread was are saviour most of the nights. Also the location of the main restaurant is questionable. Inside, very close to the next table, no air conditioning (it was 35 degree outside) and lightning like an airport.
This hotel is okey to stay at due to the location and the pools. But to get a nice bed you have to fight over it. If you arrive after 0900am it will be very difficult to get a sunbed. Overall I would say, stay away! Sure it???s okey but you can get so much better else we???re in the region.
