“early season at nora bay”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

we went third week in May, so the hotel was 25% full...staff were very attentive. The food is excellent, a different menu every night. Our room overlooked the gardens and fountain. It was lovely, spacious and quiet. The gardens are lovingly tended. And the beach...fab! Shame the sun was somewhere else, but that didn't affect our stay. We walked into town, just a mile away, which has plenty going on. It's not at all touristy, thankfully. We are planning a return asap!

Room Tip: fountain rooms have great views of gardens

Reviewed 25 April 2014

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure to dine at Hotel Baia di Nora. After an unexpectedly sunny and wamr day spent on the beach of Chia, we had the perfect light fish dinner at the restaurant of this posh Italian resort. At sunset the garden full of spring flowers and the view on the swimming pool and the private beach were wonderful. Nearby you can also see some of the ancient ruins and a small church.
After a drink, we had a light smoked salmon appetizer, than the linguine Palermitana style, a tasty vegetable sauce, and the a white and black orata with mussels, light and tasty at the same time. But the perfect touch was the wine, a fruity vermentino from Sardegna recommended by the host, Federica, you must know her, the right mix of fun and professional.
Our kids fell asleep, but the staff was so kind to let them use the small sofas in the bar: we were lucky, out of season the hotel was quiet enough for them to sleep and us to enjoy the evening at full...defintely recommended!

Excellent hotel, right next to a beach with superb swimming. Well laid out with pleasant grounds. Very friendly and helpful staff. The food was very good, although there was some repetition. The room was not the most luxurious I have had, but was very clean with effective (and quiet!) air-con, a comfortable bed and a decent shower. We also had a secluded balcony which offered both sun and shade through most of the day. Tea and coffee making facilities would have been welcome and the neighbours' plumbing was intrusive at times. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the hotel very much, and would return there without hesitation.

Dear Mr David,
we are really very glad reading that you have a good memory of your first holiday at Hotel Baia di Nora.
It will be really a pleasure for us if we could mention you as our loyal customer: if you start you never stop! This is what really happens with many clients that are used to come every year since the hotel opened... it was in the 1995!

So, we hope to see you again next year: remember Sardinia is really nice also in May or June!

Best wishes,
The Management

we ended up at this hotel on a last minute deal. we stayed one week
Pros: the hotel is set up in a beautiful and green garden which is very pleasant; the rooms are quite spacious; the beach is just as amazing as everywhere else in Sardinia (cristal clear clear water; white thin sand; no noise....); the staff was nice and caring
Cons: the quality of the food was uneven during the week (we had some awesome dishes while some other were just average); you have to add an extra to have a lounge chair on the beach; if you're young, well it might not be the right place.

overall i would recommend this hotel if your goal is to be just on the beach and enjoy the beautiful sea

Room Tip: if you choose a room facing the garden you'll have to adapt to the frog singing in the fountain...

Dear Sirs,

First of all we want to thank you for your feedback. It seems that everything was good.

About the restaurant and our offer, it would be very kind and useful for us if you could send us an email to explain what you mean about “the uneven quality of the food during the week”, so that it could be easier to find out where and what we need to improve. We are certified CSQA, and we always try to prefer the local row materials as a guarantee of freshness and healthy food. Since our clients are very different for nationality and age we always try to meet all the needs, so it could happen that some days our proposal seems not to be up to the expectations of everyone: in any case at lunch time we have a rich buffet (hot and cold) with a very wide range of choice, fish and meat, vegetables and salad, pasta and other hot dishes and many desserts, while at dinner, the client can choose among a buffet of vegetables, a lot of variety of cheeses, fruit and desserts, and have a starter, a selection of 3 first courses and 3 second courses with side dishes.

We agree with you about the kind of holidays that we offer: a relaxing stop during while our clients feel free to build their vacation as they want. There are many kinds of excursions via sea or in the countryside that you can book, many water sports and outdoor activities to vitalize the stay and a soft music entertainment after dinner. Probably this is what seniors prefer more than young people, something that helps people to find themselves keeping in touch with nature…frogs included :).

We really hope to have you as our clients again.

Best regards,
The Staff

I have been to the hotel with my girlfriend in July 2013. The settings, landscape and atmosphere are all quite nice. It was however a surprise to see how average our room looked. Although really clean, the furniture was definitely "minimalist" without any sign of luxury nor character you might expect in a 4 stars hotel. Our room was looking over the car park.

I was also not impressed when I got asked to pay extra for a lounger, once we went to the beach. The gym did not feature many machines at all, and it does look quite abandoned. I must say that the rest of the hotel was lovely, and there are plenty of positive and enthusiastic reviews commenting on the swimming pools, Jacuzzi, private beach, breakfast and meals etc.

However, for the amount of money you pay, you are not getting that much. I guess this might also apply to the other hotels in the area but for 300 euros per night I would have probably expected something more.

P.S. Staff were lovely, as well.

Dear Mr Umberto,

first of all we want to thank you for the time you spent in writing a comment on our hotel Baia di Nora.
We are very grateful for the nice words you said about the resort and its staff.
I guess your reservation was for a "Classic Room": probably a "Panoramic Fountain" would have given you a different reminder. In any case, I agree with you in describing the style of the hotel, very linear and simply: we want the nature to be the protagonist even if we help it through the daily work of our gardeners.
The relaxing atmospher is the result of the colours of the flowers, of the sky and of the sea... the same colours that you can find in our "minimalist" decor, both in the Rooms and in the Restaurant.
About the Gym, we are working to make it more comfortable: it is a small room with all the machines necessary for a complete workout, exactly what the most of our clients needs after the outdoor sport, expecially during summer when acquatic sports, running and cycling are definetly preferred.

So we hope you will choose again the hotel Baia di Nora and we promise you that we will try to do our best to offer you the chance to get fit while relaxing!

Best wishes,

The Management

What a lovely hotel! Professional and helpful staff, clean and well maintained rooms and beautiful surroundings. Me and my partner went in June this year for 1 week and were treated to excellent service and a very relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent and we had the same waiter all week during dinner and he remembered what we had to drink. I got to practice my Italian a lot and the staff seemed pleased to help me when I stumbled over asking for things. The beach is stunning although sunbeds are chargeable it is comparable to other places we've visited in Europe. Pula is approx. 30 minute walk away or 10 mins by bus (This is very cheap 1 euro!). Pula has some lovely bars and restaurants and wonderful cosmopolitan atmosphere. Went with Thompson and transfers were very efficient and professional with lovely cars. We would definitely recommend the Miramar boat trip on a lovely old schooner. This was such a relaxed day it felt like we were out on a boat with friends, food on board was great and plenty of drinks with opportunity to visit some of the dream beaches and crystal clear waters around the coast. Even the drive to the boat was scenic! The hotel can be expensive for soft drinks but we walked to Pula most days and put drinks in the room fridge and the hotel did not seem to mind.Are there any downsides? Not really our bill at the end of the week was just over £500 (half board) so expect to spend some cash. There are lots of lucky men on the beach but they don't get too close and I would definitely take a phase book. One of the best holidays I've had in a while and made even more so by the fact we got engaged on the beach on the last evening :)))

Dear Mrs Wendy,

thank you very much for your nice words.
I think that most of the visitors of Tripadvisor will be happy to know what to visit in the surrondings, also by boat.

Since you got engaged during the last evening at the hotel Baia di Nora, we hope to have the pleasure to celebrate your marriage here.... in the best scenario of the South of Sardinia ;-) .

Best wishes,

This is definitely a hotel for chilling out with a lovely exclusive beach, attractive pool complex – complete with cushioned loungers – and games areas for young and old. But the first thing that strikes you – and impresses - as you pass through reception on arrival, are the beauty and vibrant colours of the gardens which form the centre piece of the various rooms and apartments. They are impeccably maintained as are the accommodation buildings.

The rooms are spacious, complete with ample cupboard and storage space, a ‘quiet’ fridge and effective black out curtains - all contributing to a good night's rest. The beds are large and comfortable and the rooms are thoroughly cleaned every day even to the extent of replacing the white bedside mats. Bathrooms are less spacious. The wi fi link was easily accessible.

You are given your own free position/umbrella on the beach which, if acceptable to you, you retain during your stay – which means you can come and go knowing the position is kept for you. Towels are supplied, deck chairs are free and beach sun loungers are six euro a day.

The restaurant staff are friendly and courteous and the food is fine. The only downside was the slowness on some days of replenishing buffets at breakfast and for the evening salad bar. It might be a good idea for the hotel to start putting tomatoes on the breakfast buffet too.

Another idea for the hotel would be to add a few more benches to the grassy bank above the beach for patrons, particularly older people, to sit and enjoy the sea and scenery (only one there at the moment and often occupied). It also wouldn't hurt to put the day's weather chart up in reception - a common practice in Italian hotels but not here.

The hotel is only a short walk from impressive Roman ruins and the medieval watch tower. The town of Pula is a good 20 minutes walk away or a local bus ride at two euro cost complete with friendly and helpful driver. Pula itself appears to have expanded in recent years and thus has newish suburb spread surrounding a smallish older town of any interest. The larger town of Cagliari is a half an hour (different) bus ride away (tickets from reception). With its cathedral and historical areas, the town is worth a visit.

The 'word on the street' in Pula was that this hotel is the best of the bunch when compared to the other resort hotels along the southern part of Sardinia. It certainly was ok for us.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear simiilar - but garden facing are probably best.

Dear Client,

First of all thank you very much indeed for the suggestion you gave us: we appreciate a lot when our customers help us in pointing out how we can improve our performance and make your holiday unforgettable.

So we all really hope to see you again: we have just made a reservation for benches above the beach so you will have again the chance to sit and enjoy the sea and scenery.
