Colonna Park Hotel, Sardinia Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
Standing equidistant from the main coast road above and the marina road, this property has the advantage of being within a short walking distance of some shops, restaurants and, for the more energetic, the marina some distance further. The property itself offers quiet lounge areas and a large pool, which, although there are no specific facilities for children, has an appeal to those content either with a pool based relaxation holiday or as a base for exploring the numerous beaches and attractions in the vicinity.
From the main road, the tidy red-tiled roof and white walls of this 3-storey property clearly demonstrate the U-shaped layout. The quiet lane, which continues to a junction off the marina road, passes the entrance where there is some semi-shaded parking. Walking through the gate and up the short brick pathway to a single-storey portico-style front entrance, the size of the property beyond is not apparent. Flowerbeds border the path and large potted plants mark the entrance. There are 2 and 3-storey blocks of balconied rooms.

Inside, the foyer has a relaxed charm with a small check-in counter to one side of the terracotta coloured tiled floor, white walls and wooden ceiling, while on the other a small well-stocked bar with conservatory-style furnishings. The foyer continues into a larger area furnished with deep soft sofas, rugs and a large TV screen. The restaurant, with study wooden furnishings, adjoins this area with a small-furnished terrace with distant views towards the marina.
A small door leads from the lounge onto the pool deck which has a narrow ledge between the pool and lounge although the main access to the rooms and grounds is from a corridor further into the foyer area. Neat shrubberies and tall trees separate the accommodation from the pool, which is surrounded by a tidy paved area furnished with sunloungers and parasols.
Area Type: Situated 300m downhill from the main coast between the exits for Liscia di Vacco and Porto Cervo. The resort centre is 4km away where there are shops, restaurants and bars although there are a few, also, at Cala Granu junction of the marina road 1km away. Transfer time from Olbia Airport 50 minutes, Alghero Airport 150 minutes.
