We just came back from 1 week in this hotel. The room was big and the price quite attractive (we had a combined package flight + hotel). The air conditionning and mini fridge were working fine. The pool area is very nice and there was always enough seats for everybody. People at the reception were always very friendly and happy to help. The hotel offers a shuttle to access to the beach ( 1€ per person) another option is to walk downstairs (many steps) 10 - 15 minutes.

However the rooms are noisy and the strategy of the hotel is to clearly show low prices and charge all the extras at high rates :
- 30 € for a simple home made menu per person which is worth 15 € and does not include drinks (for that price you can really have high value food in the center)
- 70 € extra for a baby folding bed

So you need a car to drive to the center which is to far to go by foot.

Dear Mr Guest,

Thank your for your review. Yes rooms are big and spacious and we have different services for our guests. The hotel has a structural problem with insonorisation and it is impossible to fix it.
The 30,00 euro menu it is a that price because of the peak season, in fact, in August, all the prices go up, in June that menu can cost 15,00 euro, it depends from the season.
We will adjust the cost of the cot for next year, and it will change for longer stay.
Thanks and Regards. The management.

Me and my fiancée had an outstanding time in Cala Gonone thank to the Hotel Smeraldo; everybody has been so friendly and professional to us, from the lads at the Reception desk to the waiters/waitresses at the restaurant/bar. The swimming pool is tiny but clean and pretty, surrounded by a number of stunning trees; the closest beach is 10 mins walk away, so is the center of the village. It is possible to buy the tickets for the minicruises by boat or dinghy straight at the reception's till, so that there's no need to queue under the heat at the port down town. Food at Hotel Smeraldo is quality as well as the continental breakfast included. We recommend everybody to go there once to see it in person, it is definitely worth the price!

Nice and reasonable hotel. Friendly staff, good wifi and nice pool area. The only drawbacks were the breakfast and the 20 minute walk to get downtown. Would still stay there again.

Cala Gonone was also a very nice location. Rent a boat and check out the caves and cliffs along the coast!

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. the hotel itself is a bit 80's decorated but well maintained. We booked for 1 night and decided to stay for another night specially because of the help of the receptionists who helped us with the local attractions. The rooms are big but not fancy. the breakfast was good, although it seemed that the food was running out fast in the morning and they didn't rush to refill it. location is 5 minute walk from the center which was really ok.
