Everything was superb. Given the expensive taxi fares,wished the hotel extended a more frequent shuttle service to and from Porto Cervo center/marina (especially in the evening).
Very relaxing place to be. All staff extremely friendly and attentive. Orange restaurant food and service one of the best we've ever encountered. Would not hesitate to return.
“Perfect vacation place”
I think the photos posted on expedia do not quite reflect how beautiful is that hotel itself and the surrounding area. The hotel is located minutes away from the private beach, has a nice swimming pool, beautiful and well-kept park. The only thing that I did not like was the food at the hotel. I thought it could have been better, but there are two amazing restaurants walking distance: Rescador and some pizzeria, which are absolutely amazing. The hotel offers some good boat trips that I definitely recommend (they take you around pretty islands). Overall, the hotel was great, clean, but probably not best choice for young people who want to find nightlife, as there is none in the area.
“Purto Curvo Grand curvo hotel”
Very nice hotel bit remote very expensive Would go again as the island is so nice
“Our time at the Grand”
Arrived after 9.30pm and wasn't expecting to check in and be in time for dinner but reception phoned the restaurant and made a reservation. Overall the location is excellent , stunning views , beautifully kept grounds, various pools , apart from the main, dotted around the resort. It is within walking distance of the new marina and some local restaurants (uphill on return) . Hotel puts on a daily bus to and from old marina. Restaurant was good most of the time but was disappointed a few times . Breakfast was always excellent.We had a superior room which meant we had breakfast in upper restaurant whilst looking out to sea. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Bedrooms would benefit from updating but didn't spoil our time here.
“Beautiful hotel with artistic design and excellent value on the Costa Smeralda”
The Costa Smeralda is on the north east coast of Sardinia and was developed by the Aga Kahn in the 1960s. It is a place where many wealthy international people like to vacation. It has a town center complete with boutiques, a large harbor for yachts, great restaurants, and the area has ultra-deluxe hotels. A James Bond movie was filmed in one of these hotels. The scenery is stunningly beautiful, and although the area has grown enormously since its conception it has continued to be controlled by the Aga Kahn so that it is not spoiled. The Grand Hotel in Porto Cervo, is NOT in Porto Cervo, but about five minutes away by car. It is affordable and we were very pleased with our experience there. We loved the pool, and the openness of the scenery, the architecture and layout, and it has its own beach. A rental car is definitely a necessity to get around to the center of Porto Cervo and all the wonderful locales. I would recommend this area to people with sophisticated tastes.
Totally relaxing holiday. Staff very friendly except for the Head Waiter in the Upper Restaurant who struggled to smile. Hotel looks a little tired area beautiful. Pricy holiday if you are on a budget. Food very good standard.
“Grand Hotel in Porto Cervo - greatest food ever”
Fantastic food as part of superior room accomocation half board. HB inludes dinner and breakfast at the Orange restaurant which has incredible consistent high quality with daily changing specials. Even when not at the hotel I would recomment eating there. For beach lovers the situation is just OK, the beack is quite narrow and there is a noticeable sulphuric smell from the lagune. Beach service is EUR30 a day in August and EUR 25 in September. Having a car is mandatory to make excursions and go to other beaches. It's not a beach where you want to spend days and days. "Superior" rooms do not have much comfort and do not have a sea view. You can see the sea by stepping on the terrace. Even though the hotel is still listed on the Nikki beach website, Nikki beach does not exist at the hotel any more. The furniture is still there and makes a very relaxing extended bar area, perfect to chill out during the day or at night. Booking through Expedia made us good savings compared with the advertised list price. Other travel agents also serve this hotel.
“Grand Hotel in Porto Cervo”
Lovely hotel, great and friendly staff and close to a beautiful beach (Nikki). Would have no hesitation in going back. Not far from Porto Cervo Marina but hire a car if you can as Taxi's are extremely expensive, even in relation to Sardinia which is not cheap.
The hotel is quite good and I would recommend to anyone going to Sardinia. The staff (Alessio in particular) have been PHENOMENALLY helpful and friendly. It's got its own private beach but that's not necessarily an advantage because beach-hopping is THE way to experience Sardinia. Also, the public beaches are better than the hotel's. Location is quite close to all the attractions so that's a plus.
