This 3-night stay was part of a 12-night trip to Sardinia, staying in 4 different hotels.
The Hotel Abi D’Oru is exactly what you would expect from a resort: good facilities, good restaurants, decent sized beach and lots of beach loungers / umbrellas. Staff were very professional and attentive.
The room (we chose a junior suite) was very large, spacious and bright. However, we do have one small problem: there is no heating (only Air Conditioning). Most of the year, this won’t matter. Even when we visited (mid October), it only became an issue in the evening... but it *was* an issue, so its something that potential visitors should be aware of & pack accordingly.
One other point to note: on-site prices to sit and have drink in the lobby. We paid €30 for a single glass of ‘house’ wine (ie not a special bottle €14) plus a Bourbon & Coke (standard drink, not ‘aged’ €16). This basically meant we went outside, bought our wine and drank it on the balcony instead. In this situation, everyone loses out (including the hotel). It’s worth pointing out that these prices are not unusual in the Costa Smeralda hotels.
