Bue Marino Hotel
Ranked #10 of 20 Hotels in Cala Gonone
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Hotel is in a great spot in centre of Cala Gonone overokking the harbour and one of the beaches. The open air hotel bar is the top spot in town for an early evening or late night drink. The rooms were adequate, but cramped compared to what we experienced elsewhere in Sardinia. The breakfast was acceptable, but again the poorest of the three places we stayed in Sardinia.

So, in summary, everything was ok, the bar & location were really good, but breakfast and service could be improved.

before I start, I did have fairly low expectations knowing that this was a 3 star hotel.

I think I must have stayed at a different hotel to other people here who have given positive reviews, the only positive thing about the hotel is the view and the staff at reception are quite friendly.

The rooms are basic and small, more aligned with a 2 star hotel. The hotel is very noisy at night, there is a bar which plays music 2 doors down, and on one night we were unlucky to have noisy drunk people screaming outside until 3.30am

the breakfast I had was included in our room rate ( you would not pay for what we received), it has to be one of the worst breakfasts I have ever seen, I think there was a few croissants, coffee in a thermos (which was cold), some cartons of yoghurt, boiled eggs.....it really looked like they couldn't be bothered. You would never dream of eating in their restaurant after this.
our room did have a balcony, which I don't think had been cleaned (floor) for some time, as it was very dirty
Cala Gonone is a nice town, but it must be possible to do better than this.

We stayed here to enjoy the nearby beaches and it was really pretty perfect. We took one of the more expensive rooms in order to have a bath in the bathroom and a view. The rooftop restaurant was lovely and the breakfast served there was good. The bar was in a perfect location above the beach and felt very chic. The staff were friendly and all in all we enjoyed our stay there. We would definitely go back.

The hotel overlooks the harbour at Cala Gonone. The rooms are clean, but a little on the small size. It is worth paying extra to have a room with a sea view. The breakfast room overlooked the harbour and the beach. The staff were all very friendly.

My husband and I enjoyed everything about our stay at Bue Marino, from the beautiful sea view to the rooftop restaurant. We got what we expected from the room, and more--comfortable conditions, a great little terrace, and an air conditioner that kept us cool when the weather outside was balmy.

If you're looking for over-the-top service, lovely food, and a wonderful atmosphere for your stay in Cala Gonone, this is the place to book! The hotel owner and the desk staff couldn't have been more accommodating (their impeccable English was a treat!) and the outdoor bar across the street, which served snacks during happy hour, was one of our favorite places to relax after a trek and before dinner. A quick walk to Il Pescatore restaurant for lunch or dinner, and you're in for a perfect vacation! And when you want to take in the views, dine on the fourth floor in the hotel restaurant for delicious local food with a full view of town and the coastline.

Room Tip: Choose the second or third floors for the best views.

My husband and I stayed at Bue Marino for 2 nights in early July 2012. The location of the hotel couldn't be better! The rooms themselves were modest yet clean. Despite the location, in town, the hotel was quiet. But like I stated before, the location of the hotel makes up for the lack of luxury. Bue Marino is situated near the local beach, next to the marina, and surrounded by delicious restaurants. You are able to walk to everything you need. Breakfast was standard, but the view at breakfast on the 4th floor is reason enough to wake up early and enjoy the water. The staff was cordial and very helpful. I recommend eating at the restaurant next to the hotel. The owner, Paola, is very talkative and full of great information!

Room Tip: There is only one elevator so I would recommend staying on the 2nd or 3rd floor.
