Visitors to Sardinia can experience its famed hospitality in Hotel Nettuno, in the scenic town of Cala Gonone in the middle of the Gulf of Orosei. It offers basic accommodation in clean, spotless rooms set in a chalet-style building. Hearty breakfasts, an excellent location, and thoughtful service give this rustic and cosy Sardinia budget hotel bonus points.
Also in the area is Hotel Miramare, where a romantic escape awaits. Couples can lounge on the shaded patio looking out into the sea, or just enjoy the panorama from their private balcony. A candlelit dinner under the boughs of fig trees is possible too, as well as an underwater date for two with Argonauta, a diving facility, where hotel guests are entitled to a discount. Great value has prompted satisfied customers to suggest that the three-star, low-cost lodging should’ve been given four stars instead.
In mountainous Ogliastra, by the shores of the Lago Alto del Flumendosa, Hotel Zia Maria proves that taking the road less travelled yields good results. A stately yet simple building with 18 guestrooms, its restaurant is the secret of its success, with homemade delicacies such as prosciutto, ravioli, and ricotta.
Hotel Corte le Palme welcomes the sea in Sant'Anna Arresi. Open windows, several balconies, and views of the sea are characteristic of this cheery yellow structure. Adult and children’s swimming pools are available, as well as two bars and a restaurant. The Sardinia low-cost hotel provides shuttle services to Porto Pino’s white sand coast.
Hotel Riviera in the tourist resort of Alghero offers a truly relaxing atmosphere. A guest even commented, “The pool was also spotless, I don’t think the man cleaning it ever stopped!” Although the rooms have only the most basic necessities, the bar, restaurant, and patio more than make up for it in this great value Sardinia hotel.
