The epitome of Sardinian charm and style with pretty gardens, terracotta roofs, and a waterfront setting.

This resort captures quintessential island life with a laid-back vibe and views of Marinella Bay. A private section of the beach is reached via a short walk through landscaped gardens, and there’s a refreshing freeform pool overlooking the gardens and the sheltered turquoise waters of the Golfo di Marinella are ideal for swimming and watersports (available locally). The spa is a fantastic addition to the resort, featuring a Turkish steam bath, ice fountain, and relaxation room with salt wall. The lively Costa Smeralda town, Porto Rotondo, is just a short distance away and is well worth a visit if you like to explore your local surroundings while on holiday.

The most popular tables at Central Restaurant for the generous buffet breakfast are the ones on the terrace overlooking the gardens and the bay. Dinner is also served here with rich starter, side dish, fruit and dessert buffet offerings and a selection of show kitchens where pasta, meat and fish dishes are created. For beachside lunches look no further than Marinella Restaurant for quick snacks and a grilled buffet. For a taste of local food, head to the Tzia Maria & Bonaria which has indoors and al fresco seating.

The rooms are individually decorated with an calm island style with colour-washed furniture and tiled floors. The Standard Hill View Rooms feature a balcony that shows off the pretty hills behind the resort. We recommend the full sea view if you like having blue views.
