Hotel Punta Negra, Sardinia Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
Being situated beyond the end of the lido away from the main spread, this property benefits from a prime location overlooking a large beach and adjacent to the national park. Most of the facilities are spread across the ground floor, one below reception and, although there is no lift, the grounds are generally on a level with the 2 pools on one large terraced area. The beach is accessed by a stairway and furnishings are provided making this a popular choice with families, couples and groups.
A wrought-iron double gated entrance opens onto a paved driveway bordered by a low tradional stone wall and heavily shaded neatly maintained lawns to a large car parking area in front of the staggered white main building. Some of the rooms overlook this area from wooden balustraded balconies. The main entrance is beside a set down area in a single-storey attached annex with large arched windows and double door.

A large reception counter dominates the brown-tiled floor and white-walled foyer where local works of art are on display. A stairway leads up to the higher floor and down to the main heart of the property where there is a large lounge bar which, internally, is sparsely furnished with comfortable clusters of chairs and sofas and, on the outdoor terrace, patio style furniture. Beyond this is the restaurant with a long buffet servery and high-backed sturdy wooden furnishings in both an internal arched section and adjoining conservatory.

At the opposite end, there is a tennis court and a narrow stairway leading down to the wide sandy beach.
