Grand Hotel in Porto Cervo

Grand Hotel in Porto Cervo,  Sardinia  Italy

★   ★   ★    ★

High above the marina at Porto Cervo, this property has the benefit of a secluded beach and extensive grounds. Much of the area around the large pool deck is furnished with soft seating to enjoy the spectacular views, which adds to the ambience. Rooms away from the main property are staggered over the lawns above the tennis court and guests here take their meals at the adjacent Orange Restaurant. Although there are no specific facilities for children and it is in a hillside location, this is a popular choice for both couples and families.

Exterior

Flagpoles stand atop the traditional low stonewalled entrance which slopes steeply down, past the privately managed Orange Restaurant to a large car-parking area. To one side, the 3-storey terracotta-coloured bougainvillea-draped main building has a white steeple-like structure, acting as a flume from the kitchen, above a picturesque pot-plant adorned cobbled-floor and tiled portico entrance.

Grounds

The grounds are dominated by a large pool deck around which there are sunloungers, parasols and a few double mattressed wicker patio beds on brick-coloured paving. Most of the rooms have balconies overlooking this area, which continues across neatly tendered lawns and shrubberies, to a large open lounge area with soft lighting and plenty of deep cushioned wicker based sofas and chairs served by a terrace bar with bistro-style seating. There is a small pool in this area with views along the coast. Away from the main building, across the car park and above the tennis court, is a wing of terraced 2-storey rooms each overlooking lawns where there is a third small dipping pool. A driveway leads 300m down from the forecourt to the Orange Beach where there is a restaurant and bar facility.

Location

Area Type: A small road from the Marina route gently slopes up passing residential properties towards Cala Granu where, 2km along, this property is located. The grounds border the Orange Beach. Although there is a privately operated restaurant at the entrance, further venues and shops can be found at the junction with the Marina a further 1km away. The resort centre is 6km away.
