“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

I have been at Torreruja for four times now on different occasions since 2009; initially to participate to a conference, then twice with my partner and finally just a week ago (May 2012) with a group of friend. I have also been in other Delphina resorts (Marinedda and Valle dell’Erica), but somehow I prefer the Torreruja.
In each occasion I have appreciated the continuous effort to make of a beautiful location an outstanding vacation, and this, no doubt, has to be credited to the Director and his staff. Everybody is very professional and friendly, with just the right touch of ‘warmness’ typical of Italians.
The food is very good, and particularly the served dinners are a refined cross-over of local ingredients and recipes with a stylish presentation. A complete wine menu is available (with a wide range of Sardinian wines).
The rooms are fine (I stayed on a master suite with the sea view which was absolutely breathtaking) and the surrounding green areas release Mediterranean scents everywhere, especially in early mornings and evenings. The sea is reachable either via a short path which lead to a series of timber platforms or from the beach (10 minutes away).
Absolutely unmissable is the evening ‘aperitivo’ either around the sea-water pool or in the terrace while admiring the sunset and the medieval tower.
The bar serves a wide range of wines and liqueurs, but to accompany my Cubans I particularly appreciated the nice selection of single malts.
I will definitely come back!

We stayed in a villa on the grounds of the Torreruja hotel last summer as part of our honeymoon. We had 4 nights in Palau and then a week in Isola Rossa, followed by 4 nights in Alghero.

I have to say that the week spent in Isola Rossa was our favourite part by far.
We really liked the location of the town on a small peninsula and it was the perfect size for us.
Both of the beaches were great and the bars and restaurants provided ample entertainment.

We picked up some fizz from the supermarket at 3 euros a bottle and polished these off each night watching the sun set from our balcony.

It is a great spot to explore from as it isn't actually that far away from the Costa Smeralda or Alghero but seemed quiet enough that it wouldn't be overcrowded.

The pool area and bar were nice but we didn't manage to eat at the hotel as the rroftop restaurant hadn't opened yet and the evening meals were set and the night we fancied popping in didn't have the greatest menu.

We recieved complemetary entry to the spa and enjoyed a few mornings and afternoons there. Althoug it wasn't massive we were often the only ones there.

All in all we thoroughtly enjoyed our stay.

Overall i would

We moved to this hotel after spending one night in a neighbouring hotel.
Beautiful location, lovely pool and a great rugged walk to the lovely marinedda beach.
Friendly staff and a good relaxing break.
May not suit independent travellers as it is geared to the package market.

Helpful tour rep on arrival at airport. Took about an hour and a half to transfer to hotel but this gave us a great introduction to the island. Coach driver (and drivers in general over there) were careful and drove safely. Made very welcome at hotel. Great pool which never had more than 5 or 6 people in it. Food was amazing; the hotel switches between a buffet type service one night to a more formal waitress service the next. The upstairs restaurant is an absolute must and worth the extra 10 euros each. Well maintained hotel, very clean, very helpful, friendly staff. The whole place feels very secure and the use of free safes in the rooms enhanced this. If you want a negative about the place then it could only be the drinks prices. A beer costing 5 euros and a half decent bottle of wine costing 28 euros seemed a bit steep but then hey we were on holiday and everyone is feeling the pinch.

Excursions: Thomson offered four. We took the day trip to Corsica and the half day boat trip around the local coast. Both were great. Corsica: hour long coach tour in another direction. Again, a good view of the island and the coastline. Ferry ride to Corscia (another hour) then the day wandering around Bonafacio; a fantastic picturesque little town with plenty to see and do. The Thomson arranged boat trip was great. 12 people plus our rep on a Rib slowly cruising around the little coves near our hotel. Several opportunities to snorkel and swim (take your own snorkels) and the owner of the boat puts on a small lunch as well. Four hours well worth the 30 euros.

A thoroughly enjoyable holiday

We stayed in one of the two bedroom villas offered by the Hotel Relax. Villa was excellent with lovely views and well equipped (although no microwave was a shame when wanting to heat baby milk/food). The hotel has a wonderful pool and pleasant staff and if you are happy to do very little and just lounge in the sun, eat and drink it may well be for you. However, we had two young children with us and very much wanted great beaches and a good variety of restaurants, which is not something Isola Rossa offers. It's two beaches are average at best for Sardinia and I was a little surprised having read many good comments on here about them. But just drive 45 minutes northeast along the coast towards Santa Teresa and there are lots of stunning beaches with finer sand, more gentle sloping (good for small kids) and aqua blue water. So after a few days of being disappointed by the beaches at Isola and nearby by Badesi we spent the rest of the holiday driving 30-60 minutes each day to get vastly better beaches (thank goodness for the hire car). In terms of restaurant there are one or two decent ones in Isola Rossa but on a two week self catering holiday we soon found the choice somewhat limiting. Overall, a good holiday but not great and that's probably my fault for not doing enough research and choosing a better resort. 4 stars for the Villa/hotel, 2 stars for Isola Rossa.

The rooms of the hotel are horrible, TV out of date, old and noisy AC, food really average, nothing to do in the hotel or in the town. And not too many choices for eating out also - there are 3 restaurants in the town I think. No beach, just rocks. Internet only at the reception and for a price - this is not acceptable for a 4 star hotel. Very expensive also.

My husband and I stayed here in Sept 2010. The hotel was lovely, conveniently located for local beaches and shops. The food in the restaurant was excellent. They have a large pool which was never overcrowded although was a little cold. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We went towards the end of season so the management were beginning to close things down, i.e. the evening entertainment and the roof top restaurant, however this wasn't a problem for us. The area of Isola Rossa is very quiet, ideal for relaxing and taking it easy, but not if nightlife is your thing. Also, another reviewer commented on the number of steps - they are right, there are steps to get everywhere, to rooms, to the pool, to the restaurant and some steep paths down to the rocks and the beaches. Definitely not for those with walking difficulties. Also, the hotel doesn't have its own beach, but there are 2 really good ones within about 10 minutes walk.
