Travellers' Choice
The Hotel Capo d’Orso is an elegant boutique hotel in Palau in the North of Sardinia, immersed in the unique nature of the Cala Capra park and with breathtaking views of the La Maddalena Archipelago and the Costa Smeralda. Perfect for a romantic and relaxing holiday, here guests can enjoy endless hours of tranquillity and privacy between the two beaches of Cala Capra and Cala Selvaggia, on the wooden platforms lying over the water or in the hammocks surrounded by juniper trees. Two restaurants, a snack bar and an exclusive location over the water to taste the chef's specialities, a Pitch & Putt golf course for those looking for a bit of leisure and the prestigious L'Incantu SPA specializing in thalassotherapy for total rejuvenation. The private marina at Cala Capra, which can accommodate yachts up to 100 m in length is the ideal starting point for exciting boat trips to discover the most beautiful beaches in Northern Sardinia and Corsica.

Gorgeous hotel in such a pretty setting. Hidden nooks and crannies for sunbathing, the most perfect terrace for supper and breakfast - couldn’t have been more perfect for a long awaited holiday. Some of the rooms are a little tired and the food could be raised a notch or two but neither detracted from a really lovely break. Will definitely be on the list for another visit.

You will be hard pressed to find better accommodations on the island of Sardinia! At once an eagle nest and a glamorous corner minutes away from everything that the Costa smeralda has to offer! Suites with a view of the sea are the best room choice and come with many amenities. The staff and services are simply superb, all carefully monitored by the omnipresent Direttore, a cross between magician and guardian angel. During my stay I fell ill with bronchitis and within minutes I was put in touch with a doctor and had a prescription brought to my room. One night our rental car was left with lights on and the next morning within minutes they jump started it and we were on our way to the beach. Noteworthy is the absence of dogs that elsewhere in Italy are allowed in the strangest venues ..thus potentially ruining any vacation meal or even theater show! The thalasso SPA is incredible and offers world class facials and expert treatments (such as Oxygen TM).

On the northeast sardinian coast is nestled capo d’orso hotel, a fab 5 star next to the ocean. Rooms are hidden in wild bush and the sea Is turquoise. Food is excellent in any restaurant but you should try ile flottant, a pieds dans l’eau restaurant to eat admiring the nature. Service is unbeatable!

The natural location is breathtaking and the resort takes it one step further with exquisite landscaping. The rooms are comfortable, and the restaurant meals are plentiful and delicious. We enjoyed three days of thalassotherapy spa treatments that left us thoroughly relaxed and we visited the beach every day. Golf and boating are also available but we did not have the time. The multilingual staff is very friendly and makes an effort to get to know you and your preferences. The general manager is especially charming; he is everywhere with a smile and witty comment. We hope to make a return visit in the not too distant future!

We visited the resort the first day they opened after the COVID 19 pandemia. It was our first visit to this beautiful place and our experience exceeded our expectations. The location is great, the resort facilities beautifully blend with the exuberant Mediterranean Sea nature. The service was very professional at every level. Our food was great with delicious gourmet 4 course dinners and beautiful sunsets. Thanks to the manager Mr Mario, to our waiters Angelo, Roberto, Rosa, Claudio for taking such a good care of us. We hope we can come back soon.
