Ranked #5 of 12 Hotels in Arbatax
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2011

it was our second stay, the previous in summer of 2010, and again we appreciated the friendliness, cleanness and high standards of the premises. As a family of 4, this time we had a smaller room than the previous time but that was not a real problem. Breakfast is gorgeous and the home-made cakes superb. It's a pity there isn't a pool, it would just be perfect then. A must if you want to explore Arbatax and the Ogliastra beaches

Room Tip: ask for a family room if 4 in a party

We were there only for two nights (May) off season hence the hotel was quite. Hotel has nice breakfast, room is simple but clean and adequate. The staff was friendly and helpful.

After travelling around Sardinia where we stayed in sub standard acomodation the Mulino Vecchio was a wonderful relief. The hotel is clean, spacious and deserving of a higher star rating (we've stayed in five stars that are not as comfortable).The beds were extremely comfortable and the family room exceeded our expectations-spacious, air conditioning, lovely balcony, all mod cons in immaculate bathroom with a daily maid service). The breakfasts were delicious, a huge choice of beautiful home made cakes, pastries, croissants, rolls, ham, cheese, cereal, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, fruit juices etc. All presented to the highest standards of cleanliness and service. The staff spoke good english and were helpful regarding the best local beaches etc. Despite this, we would not holiday in Sardinia again and cannot recommend the island per se for families with children as the restaurants did not open until 19.00 hrs and even then the food was limited, very expensive and sometimes dreadful. Fresh fish does not appear to be available anywhere and it was almost impossible to find good places to eat for lunch (we shopped at the local supermarkets for picnic food). Also. the Sardinian drivers are disrespectful at best and dangerous at worst so take care.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and found the owners to be very good. However, the hotel itself is in the middle of a residential area and you must have a car to get anywhere. The breakfast has an excellent variety of sardinian cakes etc. The room we stayed in was small and on the ground floor. Because tall he flooring is plastic wood, we could hear people upstairs walking around all the time and like a lot of italian hotels, there were some plumbing problems that resulted in damp walls. Be sure to bring good insect repellant too because they have no insect screens so you have to sleep with the air conditioner on.
