If you are looking for a relaxing beach holiday then Hotel Cala Cuncheddi is the perfect place! Due to its remote location there isn't much choice when it comes to shopping or eating out but Olbia is only 20 mins away and it's within an easy reach of other coastal towns. With taxi prices in Sardinia being absolutely extortionate, I would strongly recommend hiring a car if you are planning on doing some sightseeing (parking in the hotel is free).
We thought the food in the hotel was superb and would definitely advise going half board (you can then choose whether to have lunch or dinner and can change your preference on a daily basis). Everything we tried was absolutely delicious and it was great to get an exposure to some traditional Sardinian dishes. The service was extremely efficient to the point of us having to ask for a small break in between the second and main courses!
We had a great time and would definitely go back.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for accommodations in Olbia. The staff were extremely helpful and kind, they offered us refreshments and snacks as soon as we arrived and waited for our room. They also arranged to have breakfast for us at the bar because we had an extremely early flight on our last day. The breakfast was very impressive! Full of fruit, yogurts, granola, eggs, etc. The location is superb, a short walk to all the restaurants and nightlife. We were only in Olbia for a couple of days so we took the bus to Pittulongu beach and had a wonderful day! Check out Mamabeach restaurant which is right on the beach when you arrive. I highly recommend this hotel!

This was the second time we have stayed here , the last being Sept 14. Rooms and facilities good. No evening entertainment during June /September. Television poor, only one English channel but that was not working.
Underground car park is extremely tight to manoeuvre in and often full, other car parks quite a walk away.
We were told by a member of staff that parking on the public road was ok. Many cars were always parked there.
Unfortunately one morning several cars were towed away - one being ours. We were charged 120 Euro's to the towing company and 30 Euro's to the local council and had to pay this in a post office in Olbia.. A whole morning of hassle and cost. Reception staff were not at all helpful in helping us with the language barrier and understanding bills we were presented with. We were grateful to a local tour rep in the hotel who helped us talk with police as they had no English.
We were very upset over this situation and immediately after cars had been towed away from in front of the hotel, a white van and hedge cutters arrived to trim the hedge so that the one and only TOW AWAY sign was visible.
We discussed the issue with staff but they were very unhelpful and just said it wasn't usually a problem.
This marred the holiday and we shall think very carefully about returning.
PLEASE BE WARNED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING TOWED AWAY - this should have been made clear to us when we asked about parking on the road as the car park was full.

Very nice hotel. Staff all very helpful, grounds clean, sunbeds comfortable with umbrellas of course but no pool towels supplied.
Did not eat in the hotel apart from breakfast which was quite extensive.
A pleasant hotel in the centre of Olbia. We stayed just one night after arriving at the airport. Our stay was on a Saturday night when the street that the hotel is in was closed off to traffic which meant that we had to find a parking place close by and walk to the hotel with our bags. There is only limited parking for this hotel in the street at the front of the hotel anyway. Room was clean, and the air con worked well even in the heat. Breakfast was acceptable.
The Costa Smeralda’s main arrival point, Olbia is one of Sardinia’s oldest towns, although much of it is now modern and sprawling. But the cobbled lanes in the old part of town around the Corso Umberto are full of good restaurants and some pretty piazzas to linger in over a drink. Olbia’s only real monument is the granite Romanesque church San Simplicio. Nearby are the prehistoric Nuraghi sites around Arzachena.
