Nice looking place close to harbour. The staff here are mostly friendly and helpful and the bedrooms airy and nice but the beds rather too firm. Bar is okay and breakfast room nice but actual breakfast just average. Main gripe though s it is really noisy at night. To be fair they can't help loud partying to early hours nearby but the room we had near the bar was constantly noisy from bottles being thrown in bin just outside our window. Has potential to be a good hotel but a few issues make it just so so.

Dear Mrs MT48, we thank you for your review and we are pleased that you enjoyed our Staff and the location on the marina of our hotel. However, we were sorry to learn that your rest wasn't the best. For a next stay, as already suggested to you, we recommend to book one of the Classic rooms which undoubtedly remain very quiet even though they do not have a wonderful view of the marina. Thanks once again and warmest regards

We stayed at this hotel after a mishap with the booking of a rude hotel. We loved this place! Favorite hotel out of the three we stayed at! We only left because the booking agency moved us to a different hotel. The breakfast was great with a huge variety of options. Rooms were clean and the bathroom was modern with a nice shower! There was also a bar attached that sold paninis and offered room service. It was located in the center of all the action, which was very convenient. The only con was that the pools were private so in order to use them you have to reserve the suites. Other than that, it's close to the beach and very lovely.

Finally we managed to get some vacation and we visited Palau. This Hotel was one of the very few we could have chosen from and it was a great choice. Very nicely appointed room , very large bathroom , super comfortable bed all what we needed. The staff is very friendly and helpful , nothing is ever much trouble. Cherry on the cake is the wine bar where you can relax and if you wish have even a super breakfast in the morning. We have taken the time to rent a boat and go out in the archipelago of La Maddalena , what a place !!!

Wonderful location. The Hotel is walking distance from the Harbour, where you can book nice sailing boats to reach the Archipelago della Maddalena as well as few beaches behing the harbour. From the Hotel we drove and discover a lot of pristine clear beaches at maximum 20 min drive, an endless selection. This Hotel has very comfortable rooms , super clean with spacious bathrooms. Great breakfast too Highly recommended
