“beautiful place, very quiet”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

A very relaxing 6 days in Northeastern Sardinia spent just after the high season. Airy, spacious hotel, good facilities, proximity to the beach (which was beautiful) and helpful, pleasant staff. The location of this hotel is ideal; however go with a car, as unless you want to just lie on the beach all day, there isn't much to do. Not much of a night life around, the hotel is full of older couples and youngish families (but not overwhelmingly so). Also I would suggest going full board, as there isn't much else available nearby.
This hotel is ideal if you want to disappear (limited WIFI) for a few days and lie on the beach, and go for the occasional swim-and are feeling particularly flush.

Very nice location, amazing sea side, great swimming pool, clean and nice rooms, but the best of the best is service! What a nice personnel, lovely and well-trained staff, very warm and welcoming! I would suggest more entertainment, although singers, piano, saxophone on terrace at nights is a very nice touch. Animation would be great, fun for adults and kids.

The hotel must have self assessed as a 5 star as it has nothing other than a lovely beach going for it. The reception staff are arrogant and rude with the exception of one man, wi-fi is charged for and does not work, food choice is limited and completely overpriced and the rooms are basic.
For the same money per night you can stay in a top London hotel which is ridiculous.

The hotel does not fit to a 5-star. Maximum 3-star. Some of the staff very unfriendly, especially in the restaurant. Just four meals to choose from, at the a la card restaurant. No vegetarian alternative. WiFi does not work at the room and the pool area. No service at pool area as-well. Housekeeping good and very friendly.

The hotel staff were magnificent, the food good. The beach is crowded but totally Italian a hive of activity and a reflection of all lifestyles that make up modern Italia. The pool is spacious and well kept as is the reserved beach area. Evening entertainment is a little dour but trips to Porto rondo and Baie Sardinia make up the difference. Given the economics of the EC Italy is surprisingly expensive so be prepared for the £10 pint of local beer... However there is no place like Sardinia to just relax.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty good. However the Beach lounger morning towel trip is a necessity always remind...

Not the Savoy but good nevertheless! Hotel, beach and grounds are well-presented and quiet when we stayed in early June. Friendly efficient staff in all areas. Food was excellent but Italian dinners are too generous for me. I cannot eat starters, two main courses one of which is pasta, and a sweet course. Quality was superb, especially the seafood. Breakfast was served from a well-stocked buffet catering for all tastes. Our room was clean and comfortable. Wifi access was erratic.

Room Tip: Request a sea view; rooms at the rear overlook hotel services and parking.

We arrived at hotel Abi d'Oru last summer around 6pm, opened our bags abd jumped into the sea which is about 100m from the hotel! The water is absolutely marvellous. Those were very nice days indeed. If you want to see the surroundings and look for other beaches, you have to rent a car. Sardinia is a lovely island and this hitel is well located, 20 km from Olbia. We rented a car at the airport.
The hotel itself is quite good for a beach hotel (although the prices are quite expensive, depending of course on the time of the year), nothing too fancy. On the negative side I would point out the terribly slow service in the restaurant.
Nothing to do with the hotel, of course, but be aware of the flight connections with Rome - it was a nightmare. Sardinia airlines is not to be trusted.
