“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this was not it. Its a lovely property that you feel as if you're a private guest. The location makes for a great base. The rooms were well appointed.
Letizia, the young lady at the front desk made me feel as if I were her only guest. She was extremely helpful in every way. Going well beyond the call of duty.
Letizia, grazie mille per la tua gentilezza, la consulenza e tua abilità medica.

The hotel is located near the beaches and restaurants of Arbatax. The interiors are beautiful and the atmosphere is peaceful. Very good service - you can for example borrow beach umbrellas free of charge from the reception. Good, fee wifi. Great breakfast. Areal pearl - tho this hotel we would return!

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. Small building with own small garden, tasty breakfast served at veranda, responsive personnel, good room - all these things make my stay unforgettable.
I enjoyed breakfast every day, and would recommend to get that, especially their sweets.-) Hotel does not have own cafe to go for lunch or dinner, but provides guests with the voucher to visit the nearest restaurant (discount 20% matters, as well as restaurant is worth visited!).
I'd draw a special attention to hotel's staff, which was always happy to meet any my needs. Particularly I like Emilia the most, as she is excellent in services and gorgeous by the way =)))
The nearest beach is just 3-5 min of walk away, the second one can be got by foot (around 1,5km away) or by bus. To keep other parts of Sardinia covered I recommend to use 'old railway' from Tortoli or pick up a daily boat from Arbatax port.
Finally I enjoyed being at this hotel, having seen beaches/streets/restaurants in Arbatax and getting tried Sardinia at first time. It's worth visited again!

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 later snoring next door, also the cleaner started early and could be heard crashing around outside the rooms.

DINING TIP - While you are here you MUST go to the nearby restaurant called Lucitta - it is STUNNINGLY good. I would recommend the seafood sampler menu of 5 courses (plus two bonus taster dishes), the €36 price is great value for the quality. The food is lovingly prepared to an exceptional standard and every course left me wanting more.

Hotel is close to the beach - you could walk to it from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor... ideally not next to anybody (if, like me, noise annoys you)!

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. The reception staff members were consistently helpful and friendly in dealing with any requests made of them. They spoke good English and had a pleasant demeanour throughout the day and evening. Breakfast buffet was very good too with most needs catered for. Our room was clean and spacious. The beach and local restaurants are within easy walking distance. It is also an easy drive to more lovely beaches. The 20% discount for meals at the Baia restaurant was a super bargain. They serve good Sardinian food at reasonable prices. Driving up into the hills is highly recommended with some amazing roads plus brilliant views back towards the coast from hilltop towns.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a similar good size and access to a balcony.

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. I did feel the staff could have made us more aware of the issue, and perhaps offered an apology.

All in all however, a great little hotel.
