Mare Pineta Hotel, Sardinia Italy
★ ★ ★
Situated in a woodland setting bordering the beach, this property is surrounded by a high white wall with the reception area towards the middle of the grounds giving it an almost deserted ambience. The rooms are attractively positioned looking inward and the terrace areas in front provide a nice setting but it is much quieter than its neighbouring sister hotel. As there are no specific children facilities, this is popular with couples and individuals that seek a more intimate ambience.
The property is located on the beach side of the lane, after it turns to run parallel to the coast. The entrance is marked by a high white wall and wrought iron balustrade fencing with a short driveway to an ungated gap in to the grounds. The grounds are designed around the existing trees providing a woodland type ambience with a path leading past some of the single and 2-storey semi-detached rooms to a paved forecourt area in front of the double-doored main entrance.
Property type: Hotel
The main building has a small reception counter neatly tucked into an arched-alcove at the terracotta-coloured floor-tiled entrance. The restaurant leads off from a quiet bar area both of which are furnished with sturdy wooden furniture. There is a lounge with clusters of soft-cushioned wooden chairs and sofas and a sparsely furnished TV lounge at the end of the block.
Overlooked by both the restaurant and the lounge is a terrace with seating, under an awning, for outdoor dining. The pool deck is located to the side of the main building and has a tidy paved terrace area surrounded by trees and fencing and furnished with cushioned mattresses and parasols. Beyond this is a tennis court alongside which runs a footpath to the wide, sandy beach. Behind the property, between the reception and the lane, more rooms are located overlooking predominantly sandy gardens shaded by the trees. In season, an entertainment area is located between the property and the Flamingo 200m away.
Area Type: Located towards the end of a quiet lane that branches off from the main Pula to St Margherita coast road 6km from Pula. The property borders the beach and a shared enternment complex that separates it from the Flamingo. The nearest shopping and dining is to be found in Pula although there are some venues within walking distance. Transfer from Cagliari Airport 45 minutes.
Nearest beach: Borders (Santa Margherita)
