“overall great hotel (with one problem)”
Reviewed 6 October 2011

The Cala Luna is a stylish and extremely comfortable hotel in a fabulous position right next to the sea. The beach outside is really good - great for snorkelling and swimming and nowhere near as crowded as the hotel's namesake. The restaurant is excellent. We took half board most nights and were extremely well fed. The room (78, the best in the hotel) was perfect, with a breathtaking view of the sea and two balconies, slightly shaded by bougainvillea. You could have a shower while looking over the ocean. The one problem: a couple of the breakfast waitresses are bad-tempered and sometimes actually rude. They can't stand it when you sit at the wrong table. Trouble is, it's not obvious where you are supposed to sit, so unless they change their arrangements or just lighten up a little, they are always going to be in a bad mood! It sounds a bit petty to mention this, but it does kind of ruin your day when you are trying to have a nice holiday and the staff are rude to you. I would give this hotel top marks if it wasn't for that.

Room Tip: Choose room 78 for two balconies and a fabulous sea view

We stayed at the Hotel for two nights and it was absolutely great! The room was quite small, but enough for two people, with the sea view on the side :)) There was room for all stuff, which you take with you on your holidays! It was clean, comfortable and very nice! Bathroom was big and clean. And what was the biggest advantage - LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!! Close to restaurants, beach and port! What would you want more?? I definitely recommend stay at Cala Luna.

Also there is nice restaurant at the Hotel and drink bar as well with the beach and sea view, and with very comfortable chairs.

I would only add a small airer for the towels, to dry. And maybe a small drawer or few shelves in the bathroom. To put your stuff... one small chair is not enough... especially for woman :)

Room Tip: Rooms from the side or front have a sea view! Definitely recommend to choose these!

Rooms are clean and with a great view of the sea. The staff is vey helpful. Try the boat trip arranged through the reception. Nice beaches and nice snorkling with only 12 passengers on board. Breakfast is good. Best recommendations. Only problem is parking...

Cala Gonone is a touristic spot with several hotels to stay in what can make it hard to decide which one to book since most of them are getting good ratings. With a super helpful and friendly service (one even gave us a mosquito coil when we asked how we could switch of the light of our balcony), clean rooms and a convenient location the hotel Cala Luna is definitely a good option among those. Based only a few meters from the beach, the rooms with sea view are superb and the balconies a great spot to relax after a day outdoor. You have a great view from the rooftop terrace and drinks can be ordered from the hotel's bar across the road. Never the less, the bathrooms are not from the same quality as the rooms since they are a bit small and the towels are surprisingly thin though effectively. They seemed a bit unhappy that we didn't book their boat trip as we decided to rent our own motor boat but no hassling at all. The breakfast is great and sitting outside enjoying the sea and the sun converts the morning into a great start into the day. Wlan is available for free, but you must pay a three Euro "installation fee" which seems a little bit odd nowadays - offering a service which is widely considered as standard but trying to get some money out of it?! Anyway: Great place and ah, did I mention it? Take a room with sea view & hire your own boat - you shouldn't miss it!

The hotel is elegantly furnished and the beds are comfortable. It is quiet - great for a good night's sleep, and opening the electric blinds in the morning lets in the sun and views of the sea and harbour. The breakfast would satisfy any except those looking for a eggs and bacon.
Across the road beside the beach here are tables and comfy chairs to sip your drinks.
The staff are helpful and some speak good English.
We managed to get free on-street parking right beside the hotel, but I guess this could be a problem during busy periods.

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view.

My wife and I stopped here on one of our five stops on our honeymoon. Things started ok for the first few days...the staff wasn't exactly friendly but they're weren't too bad either. Then my wife and I asked about a trip to the beaches since the hotel told us they have a zodiac tour that they share with another hotel. The said they had room for us but we had to leave right then...so we said yes and went up to the room to quickly grab our stuff. We quickly decided that we didn't want to rush and that we should just do it the next day. When I went to tell the hotel 5 minutes later, the woman yelled at me in the middle of the lobby even though I had only told them we wanted to go 5 minutes before. I know we were being indecisive, but in now way would I ever expect to be treated like this. From that point on we felt that the hotel was annoyed with us for being there, and that they didn't really want tourists there at all...a bad impression to make if you're in the tourism industry (even if truthfully that's the way you feel). I'll never recommend going here to anyone I know.

Stayed at this hotel for a few nights during my week in Sardinia.
Got the last room, small, with a view over the back yard - a bit disappointing. (Make sure you ask for a room with a sea view!)

Though that was made up by very friendly staff!
Also very nice breakfast with stunning views!
Price was alright - I would even dare to say good value for money!

Clean very quiet room, though as mentioned a bit small, without any view except kitchen entrance...
Offer your guests such basics as free Wifi and parking, and you would have had five stars from me...
