Everything was just perfect. Very quiet, clean and cosy room, very good smell all over the hotel - which is a rare thing; very friendly and helpful staff, genuine Sardenian furniture and other small home-like features. Very good location: a few minutes walk to the nearest beach and a 15-minute walk to another, much bigger one. Tortoli is a 5-minute... More

Nice three star hotel. Don't expect luxery, it's just good. A few things need to be fixed an updated. In our room (205) television didn't work and the toilet was nearly broken. Nothing major but it's the details that make the differnce between good or perfect. Beach is very near and restaurant la Baia is very nice. Also the bar... More

I've been in Hotel Vecchia Marina almost 4 months ago, but still can not forget these positive and romantic emotions it brought to me. While I was searching for a quiet place in Arbatax, I had to choose among a very few hotels this coast village had. Now I'm sure that was a truly right choice to get Vecchia Marina.... More

The room was pleasantly decorated and comfortable. The breakfast was superb, with a great choice, including fruit and locally made biscuit/cake specialities. The staff were very friendly and the receptionist's English exceptionally good. Alas the room walls are not thick enough for sound-insulation, and this is not helped by the tiled floors - I could hear the people talking and... More

Whilst Arbatax itself is not a great resort the location is perfect for beach or inland trips. This hotel was a very good stop while we were in the area.

A great little hotel with a true Sardinian feel. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, and the buffet breakfast was amazing. One of the staff even called up and helped us with booking a boat to hire (really recommend doing this by the way!). Only slight issue was the air-conditioning broke down on us for 2 days.

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely hotel close to the beach. The hotel is a good starting point to explore Sardinia. Staff very friendly. The breakfast was tasty. We went to Cala Goloritze for a trip which was also great. Arbatax is a small village but if you go to Tortoli you can find there shops and good restaurants... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This charming hotel, originally from the former village of Foresteria La Cartiera di Arbatax, the most important industry of the 60 present in Ogliastra. Following its renovation the Hotel La Vecchia Marina continues its important work in hospitality, offering its smart and simple rooms. Situated in a prime location, the hotel is just 5 minutes from the award winning beach of Porto Frailis, Blue Flag in 2015. Along the boulevard leading to the beach, with a short walk, you can reach various restaurants and clubs so you can relax in the evening. For your stay we recommend the use of a car, as an alternative to 100 meters from the hotel is the bus stop, to quickly reach the center of the town of Tortoli or Arbatax. During the summer season there is the line of public transport, which will take you in comfort to the beautiful beaches of Lido di Orri and the Lido di Cea. The hotel has free WiFi and free on-site parking. The cozy rooms are equipped with minibar, TV, air conditioning, heating, hairdryer, safe & toiletries. The hotel organizes transfers to / from airport, boat trips and to the discovery of territory. Our staff is on hand to recommend and book restaurants, laundry service, bicycle and dinghy. Always at your disposal in order to help you with your check in and print your ticket. ... more   less
