    Private oasis

    Enjoyed this charming hotel during my stay in Porto Rafael! I would probably consider this hotel more of a B & B as opposed to a hotel though. There are only 6 or 7 rooms which also adds to the privacy and intimate feeling of the place. The hotel staff were EXCELLENT (Laura the manager speaks English and was incredibly helpful with EVERYTHING) and the location is only 15 minutes out of Palau. You definitely need a car though if you plan to get around.

    Bellissimo soggiorno

    Premetto che Porto Rafael e’ un posto speciale, quindi l’ hotel sulla piazzetta ha un fascino unico. Sono stata fortunata perche’ la mia camera aveva il terrazzino con vista mare, sulla piazzetta il che non ha prezzo. Monica e’ il valore aggiunto dell’ hotel, disponibile e gentile. Per il resto non c e’ servizio. Visti i prezzi , investirei in una colazione, anche basica ( caffe’ e croissant)magari facendo un accordo col Gattovolpa, il bar sotto l hotel. Cambierebbe tutto. Comunque ci tornero’ con grande piacere.

    Zauberhaftes Hotel und Lage! Achtung, die angegebene Adresse in Expedia ist falsch, sie müssen ca. 2 Minuten den Berg weiter hoch rechts weiterfahren.

    Good hotel, but not for elderly or small kids

    Porto Rafael is a known location for its lovely surroundings. The hotel itself is located on a little square and is rather unconventional. To reach it, one need to leave the car on the nearby street, and roll/carry their bags down to the square for about 100m. The road down (and up) is not easy, paved with stones, and rather steep. At the square there are no hotel signs, ask the restaurant waiters for directions. To reach the rooms one has to then carry the bags 2 floors up, no elevator there. I would not recommend elderly people or families with small kids to live in this hotel just because going up and down that road and stairs, especially in warm weather could be quite a challenge. Hotel has 6-7 rooms in total, so not many guests, and in general it was quiet. However the walls are thin, so prepare to occasionally hear your neighbours talking, etc. We had a tiny room (6-7 sq m probably) and even tinier bathroom. Room is clean, very nicely furnished, and double bed is very comfortable. Our windows faced the "inner garden", that is just a wall to the next building. Rooms facing the square should have better view, but must be very noisy. Breakfast is good, but be there on time, as the food tend to run out well before the end of the breakfast time. The restaurant by the hotel is expensive, even for the Costa Smeralda. The beach is nearby, but lots of boats come and go, so choose beaches somewhere else. To sum up, a good hotel, great surroundings, but would not stay there again.
