In Our View:
This is one of our favourite hotels in our entire programme, its seaside location, crystal clear seas, fantastic home-made pasta, professional friendly staff. The village, just 10mins walk, has a small selection of family restaurants and a couple of chic ones. All in all there is little more you need to make a fantastic holiday.
Official category: Four Star
This charming village is located on the north east corner of Sardinia looking across the straights towards the mountains of Corsica. The bay itself is small with a good sandy beach with loungers and parasols available to all for rent. There is a long promenade along the front where the locals with their families wander up and down in the evening heat, looking at the shops and visiting the restaurants. Our of the five restaurants along the promenade we would highly recommend three of them:-
Sole Mare. A pavement restaurant that serves the best of Italian pasta and pizza in authentic surroundings. Try the 'Warm Octopus' starter 10 euros and any of the pizzas 7 euros, a carafe of house wine is 10 euros per litre.
Ristorante L'Approdo is actually on the beach, again excellent Sardinian wine for 10 euros a litre and splendid Spaghetti Carbonara all at reasonable prices.
Foodie Eccellenze Italiane. Just outside the front door of the Grand Hotel Smeraldo Beach, this restaurant offers a wide range of local Sardinian dishes at reasonable prices
