First visit to Sardinia. Chose Hotel Abi d'Oru because of proximity to Olbia Airport (25 min drive )
and location on Costa Smeralda.
Turned out to be a great choice. Hotel is a super location on a beautiful beach and surrounded with with well kept gardens. Large swimming pool with lots of brand new furniture although not heated. The beach also had plenty of brand new sun beds kept clean although lacked food and drink service out of season.
Very impressed with the Hotel management. Reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Agustino helped us sort out restaurants,excursions etc. The rest of the staff always with a " bonjourno " or a" bona sera "
Behind the bar Luca and Fabio helped us with places of interest to visit,local history, Language as well as served the drinks. Housekeeping was immaculate throughout and as good as anywhere we have experienced across the world and better than most.
Porto Rotondo ( 10 min by car ) is absolutely lovely.The walk ways around the Marina are well layed out and there are tasteful bars and restaurants interspersed.Plenty of restauarants in the town.We found that a restaurant called " TARTARUGHINO" in the centre of town,great quality food,fresh fish ( turbot) and shellfish plus superb steaks and chateaubriand, was the best. Expertly run by Riccardo who always makes you feel very welcome with a great team of very friendly staff.
Traditional Sadinian food was found at " Locanda Rudalza " What a feast! Fixed menu of around six starters,three pastas,suckling pig and home made wine all for an inclusive price of 30 euro when we visited in last week of April
One thing I did learn about Porto Rotondo. Be careful when choosing your holiday dates.Too early or late in the year lots of places and facilities are closed.
High Season everywhere is very busy.Beaches are packed,roads are busy etc.
