Reviewed 9 June 2017

Second stay at this lovely hotel and it is just as good. The owner Nikki is so helpful, friendly and happy to help in any way he can. Booking resturants, boat trips anything you want he can do. The three ladies who clean and look after the hotel do an amazing job. In fact I can say it is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are are all great but if you want a view to remember book one on the first floor.

Am sure we will be back, again and again.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a great view.

Everything others have written in praise of this place is accurate. Against all the odds the Costa Smeralda is exactly as I hoped and expected. The hotel is in a great location, peaceful, beautiful, close to a good beach. It’s immaculately turned out, there’s a pleasant pool and we are perched above the bay and the owner is very helpful. He booked us into restaurants and ferried us there in his car. He also arranged us a boat trip round the Maddalena national park (archipelago of islands with stunning scenery). And he took us to the port down the road and picked us up.
Our bay is very pretty with views across extraordinary curly rock formations. The beach is ‘white sand’ with plenty of sunbeds, though not too many people and the water is exceptionally clear. It’s cobalt blue rather than emerald though, so I’m not entirely sure why this is called the Emerald Coast. The area was first developed by the Aga Khan in the sixties and he wanted to keep it all up market. This is the most expensive real estate in Europe. The guide books say that before the development began this area was only frequented by shepherds and their flocks. The buildings are therefore mostly relatively modern but they have all been designed to meld in with the wild mountain scenery and the pine and tufty chamomile. The roofs are charmingly red rustic with curved tiles and the chimney pots all have triangular stone caps, some even have arches, echoing Gaudi. Sprays of bougainvillea and oleander in full exotic bloom scramble up the walls and along all the roads and the air is scented with jasmine. The roads are wide and modern except where they teeter over the mountains to quaint villages. It’s difficult to fault it.

We stayed for a week at the end of the season and were greeted by Nico and his english wife, Marion. Nico is very helpful in suggesting places to visit, walk or just relax on the beach and always ready to help with anything in the hotel. It is comfy and clean and we enjoyed a swim in the pool every morning. You can sometimes hear the night club which is about 200 metres away but this was not very intrusive. The nearest lovely beach is a few minutes walk away and there are nearby walks around the coast and the Tre Monte and up onto a ridge, Monte Maro. The area is made of up well designed holiday resorts, so you have to travel to get to a real village or town, which we did. But the resorts are full of good restaurants, shops and people watching and Baia Sardinia is a ten minute walk away.

Room Tip: Sea view with balcony definitely worth it for the sunsets and changing sea view and the space

We spent 2 weeks touring round Sardinia with the grand finale being at villa Gemella . It's a fabulous hotel with a charming owner, super rooms ,great breakfast (fab coffee!) and a lovely position! Niko the owner is great - when you get to know him - and even had sky sports on tap for the Manchester derby - and even beer to celebrate when City won! We'll be back!

I was staying there 8 nights to get some rest. Pick up from the airport was also fixed with the owner Nico who speaks also English and gave me also some Italian lessons. Nico is of great help and I could choose between a room close to the pool or a double bedroom closer to the reception. Despite the close to the parking and reception it was a quiet room and big enough with chairs in front and a fridge inside. You can hear louder neighbours when showering however all fine. Breakfast is more than general Italian style with fresh fruits and handmade coffee made by Nico and his crew. I loved the place. The beds are good and not too soft. Bathroom only for one person. Shower small. All in all a tidy and clean place. Nico and his staff are friendly and helpful.

Nico got me on a boat trip to the area isla maddalena (not more than 12 people) and also recommended where to eat or which beachside would be more suitable linked to the wind etc. some of the beaches are in 5 minutes walking distance. Across the street a supermarket. Parking space available.
I need to come back.
Only thing I realised was the the towels are cleaned every day even when not put on the floor for exchange. At home we don't exchange them every day...

Thank you Nico for having me and bring a great host. Keep on smiling.
