Club Hotel Laconia, Sardinia Italy
★ ★ ★
This property benefits from being located on a quiet predominantly residential street a block away from the main coast road. It is also within a few minutes walk of the long stretch of sandy beach that fronts the resort. Although some of the decor is more reminiscent of a holiday camp, the furnishings and layout are attractive and the pool deck, tightly surrounded by some of the rooms and a high wall, provides a generally quieter ambience. With facilities for children, this is a popular choice for adults and families.
3-storey pastel-pink coloured property faces the quiet residential street overlooking a shaded car park and bordered by a traditional low stone wall and verdant gardens of shrubs, trees and flowerbeds. A set down area in front of the arched ground-floor facade leads up to a trestle style portico over a double fronted sliding glass door entrance. Some, mainly balconied, rooms with wooden shutter-style doors are located on the upper floors looking landwards.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
The foyer is sparsely furnished with polished off-white floors and pastel-shaded walls. Curiously, a rack of room keys is accessible to everyone with a long reception counter located a little further down. In an adjoining room, there is a lounge facility with comfortable cushioned sofas and a flat screen TV with a corridor leading on to a charming courtyard bedecked with pot and trailing plants. The bar is located here and offers bistro-style seating on the cobbled area. The restaurant also adjoins the courtyard with terrace seating a large indoor area with sturdy wooden furnishings.
A passage leads deeper into the grounds overlooked by rooms with either terraces or wooden balconies. Steps lead up to a large empty roof top patio from where the lawned grounds with children’s play area can be seen. Towards the extremity of the grounds is the pool deck, which has a wide tiled terrace, overlooked by some rooms and furnished with plastic, mattressed sunloungers and parasols. A small plunge pool is situated towards the back of this area.
Area Type: On the northern perimeter of the town standing one block back from the main coastal road and bordered by residential properties to the S and E and shaded car parking and fields to the other. The main resort beach is within a 5-minute stroll with some restaurants and bars a little further. The town centre is a 30-minute walk. Transfer time from Olbia Airport 50 minutes, Alghero Airport 150 minutes.
