Reviewed 8 October 2012

Badus is an amazing place, could not be cleaner, spotless - apts. lovely, great amenities...Loredena and "caretaker" both friendly, and working hard all day every day....There is nothing in Badesi, just a few supermarkets, cafes, Italian restrnts...BUT there are restrnts/beaches etc 5 mins drive...Perfect for families wanting peace and quiet and to relax....Strangely the pool is closed for siesta for a couple of hrs in the afternoon, we still swam, but you need to be quiet, other guests seemed to go back to bed(!).

We booked a week at Badus at pretty much the last minute as it offered some key facilities, children's pool, free wifi through out, playground and separate bedrooms. What we did not realise was there was no air conditioning.

In summary;

On the plus side:
- lovely clean pools and poolside area
- wifi worked in our appartments
- comfortable bed
- nice terrace/balcony
- small hotel with rooms nicely arranged around the pool
- limited extra costs compared to some other places. We only paid for cleaning
- reasonably quiet
- great communal bbq with picnic tables
- mainly Italians and young families who were not loud
- short walk to decent supermarket or short steep walk to town cafe and gelati etc

on the negative
- rooms not air conditioned
- some rooms at the back look onto garbage
- church bells every morning at 7am
- playground basic, bit run down and dusty but our 2yr old enjoyed it and made lots of friends
- kitchen area very small and no worktop area
- no water pressure in showers
- Badesi is not a characterful place
- Badesi beach is nice (clear water) but not characterful like some of the beaches in Sardinia
- The management could be more helpful in suggesting places to go. Some other guests did the boat tour from Santa Teresa de Gallura which they recommended

Room Tip: Suggest take a first floor room or a room on the high side (site slops down hill).

Reviewed 26 July 2011

After reading a review of the apartments here on Tripadvisor we booked a nine day stay at Badus. I can only agree with the other English review here: Great place! Parents (in our 30'es) and children (aged 3 and 6) loved it! Very nice people, nice and clean appartment and kitchen with microwave oven, tv , fridge and WIFI - and since 2009 towels for adults have come to Badus.

No party place, Badus and Badesi offers a great spot for relaxation. Quiet, beautiful surroundings, fabulous pool area, a supermarket 200 metres away and further away from Badus a great beach.

And in Badesi about 10 min walk from Badus a very important store is almost hiding itself on the main street: the Gelateria Artigianale; a fantastic little - well, room basically, with around 20 types of homemade icecream, different flavours from day to day. If you're going to Badesi, make sure to pay them af visit; we and the children completely loved it!

We booked six months in advance and got a 10-15% discount, ending up paying around 1000 dollars for nine great days.

Reviewed 18 June 2009

We stayed at the Badus self-catering apartments for the 1st week of June 2009 & were pleasantly surprised. We got a great price (£170) for a studio flat but ended up in a lovely 1 bedroom apartment with a large living/kitchen area, balcony, large bathroom & double bedroom with 2 wardrobes.

The apartments are in a small complex arranged around 2 pools (one shallow for children) with great views of surrounding hills, & about a mile from a long sandy beach. There’s a shuttle bus to the beach during the summer & plenty of car parking space there too. Other holidaymakers in the resort were mainly Italian, a mixture of couples & families with young children, but it was always very quiet around the pool.

What we enjoyed about staying at Badus
• Very clean – pool & gardens were cleaned daily
• Spacious apartments – clean & well decorated with big balconies
• Well equipped kitchen - hob, full size fridge/freezer, utensils etc
• Wide comfy beds
• Quiet & relaxing location
• Friendly staff
• Cable TV (but no British channels!)
• Free car parking
• Small childrens playpark
• Outdoor BBQ area for guests
• Wifi
• Well stocked supermarket 3 mins walk
• Other small shops & quiet bars 5mins walk into the village
• Good local restaurants
• Short drive to historic towns of Isola Rossa & Castelsardo

Things to consider
• Hire car required to reach the resort – it took us just over 2hrs from Olbia airport.
• Towels aren’t provided but bed linen is.
• Resort & complex are very quiet (not the place if you want nightlife)
• No bar or eating places on site.
• Only Italian restaurants nearby

The 1st week of June is out of season as far as Sardinia is concerned – which means you can get good accommodation deals but some restaurants & attractions on the island in general hadn’t opened. This didn’t bother us as it was still hot & we could relax by the pool or on the beach.

Badesi itself is a quiet resort with a few small shops, restaurants & bars (Italian bars – think more café with a license, than a British boozer!). Not much English spoken anywhere so take your phrase book, we found people patient & friendly if you made the effort to try & speak Italian! Loredana at reception is very friendly & speaks some English.

We would recommend this resort to couples or families who like relaxing, quiet holidays without noisy bars or nightclubs.

I’ve added some photos but there are more at the Badus website www.badus.it
