Balocco Hotel
Ranked #6 of 21 Hotels in Porto Cervo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 November 2016

My daughter and I stayed in Hotel Balocco in early May 2016. It was not warm enough to full appreciate Porto Cervo, the Costa Smeralda or the wonderful pool at the hotel which was a shame. We had a spacious room with an outdoor area with the most amazing view of sea. Breakfast delicious and the wait staff were faultless. Very quiet. I was thrown a little when the concierge at the check in desk asked me if we were going to check out 'earlier' than checkout time which was 11am - why? The inference was that they needed the room, however, as guests of the hotel couldn't we stay until 11am?

Room Tip: Go in the warmer months

My sister and I stayed here for a week during the low season so not much open in Porto Cervo but that didn't matter as the hotel is great to just hang out and chill in. Amazing views out to sea and the marina and every room has a balcony with a nice table and a sun lounger. Breakfast was delicious and substantial. Staff were amazing, friendly and extremely helpful. Would recommend this hotel to anyone! Ask for an upper room if available so that you make the most of the views!

Just returned from a three night stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel for a relaxing, recharge mini break. Situated above Porto Cervo, the views are breathtaking. Our room (110 ) over looked the stunning gardens, which were incorporated back up through the balconies and pool area with a side view of the port. The rooms are well equipped with mini bar, tv, hairdryer and free wifi throughout the hotel and grounds. Patio furniture provided. The only downside, there were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The hotel is decorated in typical Italian style with hand painted murals and random niche seating areas with views of the landscape. The reception area incorporates a lounge, bar and outside patio with truly stunning views over Porto Cervo.
It's a quiet hotel in a quiet location, a car is a must if you want to explore further afield. The beach and port are within walking distance, however it is uphill and down dale so can be a little challenging for some. There is a larger beach a little further away where the hotel provides a shuttle bus to. Breakfast was served at the pool restaurant and was plentiful, cereals, hams, cheeses, eggs, cakes,pastries, yoghurts, fresh fruit salad.
Afternoon tea and evening snacks are served from here too.
There is a bus service with a stop outside the hotel which operates in the high season. There is a cafe/restaurant and supermarket within walking distance. Hotel has a lift.

Room Tip: Would recommend booking room with a view on the higher floors

We had four nights at this charming ,well appointed hotel with friendly staff .
In particular Rosella and Samantha on the reception desk made us feel very welcome and also gave helpful advice for sightseeing and excursions.
Giselle in the restaurant ,also deserves accolades for excellent and friendly service.
The hotel has lovely gardens ,swimming pool and public rooms.
I am happy to recommend it .
