Reviewed 7 September 2010

A beautiful hotel, perfect for couples, a little gem. We'll definitely return, despite the slightly scary roads from the airport (not that scary when you get used to them!). Book a room leading onto the terrace if you can, having said that the ones with mountain views are probably just as nice! This was possibly the cleanest hotel either of us had stayed in, with lovely friendly staff and a great breakfast buffet. A slight shame there's no restaurant but only a 3 minute walk to a very reasonable place with a discount if you book a table via the hotel.
One tip; don't let the heat of the terrace put you off; it's scorching from morning until late afternoon but the pool isn't heated so perfect for a cooling dip! And because the hotel is so small this area is really quiet, if you're lucky with a room leading onto the terrace you can pop back in if you overheat, as the air-con was super efficient!
We highly and sincerely recommend this very reasonable (and beautifully decorated!) hotel, I would certainly consider it as a honeymoon destination.

Borgo Antico is a great place to stay and ideally located in San Pantaleo. The hotel is quiet, clean and a short drive to some of the nicest beaches in Costa Smeralda. All of the hotel staff was very nice & accomodating, especially IGNAZIA who answered our endless questions graciously :).
The rooms are simple, but very clean and spacious with a nice sized balcony. San Pantaleo itself is a charming and authentic Italian village. There is a supermarket, pharmacy, cafes, shops and a church well within walking distance. Parking was pretty simple too. For those of you who are in doubt, renting a car in Sardinia is an absolute MUST!
I would definetely stay in this hotel again and I highly recommend San Pantaleo too!

Reading the reviews there seemed to be only one option. 200 Euros a night seemed OK for what was undoubtably going to be a great hotel... except it really isn't.

It is a really fairly average "pensione". The room was a good size for 2 adults and 1 child, clean and cool. The bathroom was very poor - a cheap shower from the Itailan verion of B&Q - very flimsy and uninviting. The swimming pool is freezing and unheated. Very small and claustrophobic round the pool. The hotel is located up a residential back alley where you have to park and then lug your luggage up to the hotel.

All this for 200 euros - I really think this hotel is surviving on hot air generated by Tripadvisor. I would go elsewhere.

PS The recommened restaurant in the hotel virtually opposite was very good (approx 60 euros a head but we ate very well).

If you are looking for a good base to explore Sardinia, close (but not too close) to Olbia airport then this is your place! San Pantaleo itself is pretty and authentic and the hotel lives up to all the reviews you will find on this site. No restaurant but a very good (michelin starred) restaurant literally over the road and lots of other options a short drive away.

This hotel fully deserves the previous positive comments. It is a small hotel with no restaurant so you have to eat out in the day - not a problem in Italy. The staff are great, especially Simone who was very patient with my limited Italian but really wanted to help. The rooms are fairly basic but clean and modern. We had a balcony looking away from the pool. The view of the mountain was somewhat obscured by olive trees but it made it very private. The village is small but very friendly. There are a few restaurants - we would recommend Ichnos and Nico. For a true Italian experience eat at the Agrituristico Murualtavata (something like that) just outside the village. They serve evening meals from 20.30. Make sure you go starving if you want to do it justice. Go to the bars in the evening - the one at the petrol station is very friendly and the measures are generous. We were there for the World Cup - how we all laughed at the French - not so funny now.

The staff are lovely - very friendly and helpful. The hotel is attractive and clean. We probably didn't see it at it's best as we stayed in early April and the weather was not great. It was very cold in the dining room and several guests were eating breakfast in coats. The other problem was that there was only one restaurant within walking distance which was open. However there are a few other restaurants in the town and am sure that in warmer months these would be open and I could imagine sitting by the pool after a day out. We played golf at nearby Il Pevero which was a great course with excellent facilities.

The hotel is small but very nice. We went out of season so it was quiet with no children. That did mean that it lacked a bit of 'buzz' but the peace and quiet was lovely. It was a great base for exploring the northern part of the island.
The rooms are clean and adequate. A step above your average package holiday hotel room. The staff were very helpful and there was a great choice of coffee at breakfast.

San Pantaleo is a quiet town/village. The village square is lovely with a bar overlooking the square where you can watch all the comings and goings in the evening. Wine was great and they serve cured meats and local cheeses to quell your appetite. Restaurants in the village are limited.

Would recommend a car as the beach is a drive away as are the local towns. Porto Cervo gets all the acclaim but it was a bit too artificial for us. Porto Rotondo was nicer, with lots of little nooks and crannies to walk around and the marina perfect for strolling. Not an old port but sympathetically developed.

Look out for the "roadside caff" on the road to Olbia. Strong coffee and a fantastic view.
I would recommend but on the grounds that it is a quiet, out of the way hotel which, unless you have the means for getting out and exploring, might leave you feeling a bit claustrophobic after a while.
