Authentic Sardinian hotel
Overnight stop in Palau, lovely authentic hotel, spotless room and communal areas, good breakfast service, nice atmosphere in bar area, super friendly and welcoming staff!

Staying in the presidential suite
We stayed in the presidential suite and were welcomed with a bottle of prosecco and some local cookies. The room was great and the jacuzzi was a very nice touch, even if not as big as from the pictures. Breakfast was an average self service, with both sweet and savoury dishes and a coffee machine. Perhaps one would expect more from a 4* hotel. It is conveniently located by the town harbour and centre, both reachable within 5min walk. The staff was always smiling and super efficient. Definitely a recommendable place to stay.

Tommi, us2 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Always a great place to stay as it’s close to area where there are shops, market, restaurants, etc. Breakfast was very nice. Stella is lovely and very helpful as was all staff. Only one issue was due to noise from restaurant/bar close by as there was a soccer game and it was very noisy one night.

This hotel had the elegance of an old fashioned Italian hotel with spacious bedroom and bathroom with the first functioning shower I encountered. The breakfast was excellent and it was good value for the cost of the room.
