This is a two star eco hotel, and one of the great things about it is that it does not pretend to be anything more than that. It offers a sustainable down-to-earth nature experience, as well as breathtaking views and amazingly beautiful sunsets. For what it is, I think Hotel Villaggio Sabbie d'Oro deserves top score. The staff is friendly, the home cooked meals are really tasty, and the hotel gardens are beautifully maintained. Good coffee, croissants and a few other options for breakfast. Travelers should know that it takes about five minutes to walk down to the beach, about ten minutes to where you can rent sunbeds and umbrellas.The walk is steep, but that is also why the view is so fantastic. There are a few decent restaurants that sell lunch and refreshments on the beach. The rooms are what one would expect from a hotel of this standard, fairly simple but clean. The beds are firm, but the magnificent views make up for it. There is no AC (because this is eco lodging), but there is a fan on the wall. It is also possible to tilt the door half way open so it lets air in but remains closed from the outside. For those who like sustainable traveling, and for those who like to do a morning run or yoga on the sand dunes, this is a perfect place to stay for a few days. We recommend it.

The location is lovely, set in the dunes and a short, but fairly steep, walk down to the beach. we had one of the rooms with additional bunk beds in, this means the main bedroom is at the back and its a bit dark. The rooms was a bit basic and it could do with a refresh. We stayed 2 nights and had dinner here the second night, at 25 Euro a head, which I think was overpriced. We had a better meal in the local village, but you need to drive there. So, its OK, but could be better

Villagio Sabbie D’oro is the worst owner/place combo we’ve ever experienced in the whole of Italy in our 20+ years of travelling. We’ve seen various places, but this is the one, where the owner's greed and disrespect towards clients shone through unhindered. The infrastructure was far below basic – cheap and worn. In fact this looked a homeless shelter, not a hotel. Surrounding dunes were littered with broken bottles, concrete etc., and the access road was plain dangerous. And the joy-stay was heavily overpriced. Though the hotelliers had learned the modern ways for cheating on clients, the clients came to senses pretty fast. We were booked for two nights (19–21 September 2016), but left after the first one in utter dissatisfaction. It began with colourful descriptions and a rather high price on the booking.com website. The reality came as a shock. At 80 euros per night (room Nr.10) one would expect a room slightly larger than a rabbit crate; WC doors that would: a) close properly, b) provide reasonable sound insulation, neither of which were present. Also the bed mattress would be expected to be nice and fluffy, not sagged with springs pushing through the cover. And at this price one would like to see a reasonable quality tableware at dinner, not knifes and forks of the very cheapest make (imo ~ 0,27 euro per item) and certainly not disposable plastic glasses, as we experienced at breakfast. In my opinion sum of the above not only proves the disrespect towards clients, but definitely disqualifies this place from a hotel status down to that of a shelter for homeless. The dinner deserves special mention – it was grossly overpriced at 25 euros per set menu, though we did not know this, when signing up to dinner. The language of the set menu fills you with great hopes, that do not come through, though, and then you wonder what are you paying for. The food quality seemed good, but the products so visibly from the cheapo EuroSpin supermarket... A simplistic product cost breakdown from the mercato in the nearest town, Oristano, showed how the hotelliers cheat their clients: spaghetti 1,60 euro/500g, cherry tomatoes 2,60 euro/500g, pork 6,50 euro/kg… In my calculation what we ate in that set menu did not cost more than 3,5 euros in products per person. The bill – 52 euros. Shall I remind you of a place in Austrian Tirol, where the set menu still costs from 8 to 15 euros? However, I give credit to the cook – her nice dessert cake persuaded us to stay the first night in this place. Yet, when the next morning at breakfast we were offered ugly disposable orange plastic glasses for drinks, we decided to cut short this homeless experience. Another special mention is deserved for the surroundings. The sea and dunes, of course, are pictured to impress. What the photos in the do not show are the surroundings of this place in detail. Approx. 20 metres from the property in the majestic dunes we were greeted by a combo of broken wine bottles. Further down the dunes we found an assortment of construction garbage: fragments of concrete blocks and steel strings. Since any nearest houses are at least 2 km’s away, there was strong suspicion that all those came from the property. Lastly, the bushes in the dunes were full of products of human activity, but this, of course, does not relate directly to the property. Anyways, this is what the photos do not show about the near surroundings. And finally about family friendliness – judge for yourselves! There are three points that I’d like to disclose in this regard: 1) SEA When the western wind blows, the sea becomes utterly dangerous. Nobody would want to see their kid washed into the sea with no real help available. Yeah, you’ll be on your own, as the guard station is approx. 1 km away towards Torre dei Corssari. 2) MOBILE COVERAGE God forbid, if anything happens and you would need an emergency help, you may find in horror, that mobile service is down. I experienced this “down" myself. 3) LITTER The dunes are littered like Sardinian roadsides. Please be informed! To conclude – the place does not deserve the status of a hotel, as it is far worse and shamelessly overpriced. The surrounding do not live up to the environmental hype as well. What we experienced there was in stark contrast with the sales texts and photos available on booking.com. I consider that cheating on clients. Go there at your own risk, if you want to experience how it is to be homeless and cheated out of your hard earned money. PS. The argument of a place being located in a poor and undeveloped region is not accepted.

Sabbie door offers you super clean rooms facing the beach in a magical atmosphere. This is not a high end place, but you really feel privileged staying here. Only 10 rooms in independent small houses, delicious home made dinner by Tania, a totally relaxed stay away from the crowd... we couldn't expect any better!
