Join them when you check in at your Sardinia accommodation. Whatever your budget, TravelSupermarket has the ideal hotel for you...
It's not just the glitterati who feel at home in Sardinia: there are exclusive resorts where luxury hotels cater for the wealthy, but there are also plenty of family-friendly resorts, mid-range accommodation and even a few budget hotels, if you'd rather save your cash for the fantastic restaurants and cool bars.
Just like an ageing male A-lister, the island of Sardinia is handsome in a craggy and rugged way. You can spot Roman, Catalan and Genoan influences if history and architecture are your things, and you're never far away from a café, restaurant or family bar offering a mouth-watering array of temptations.
Of course many people visit for the island's gorgeous beaches, where clear waters are bathed in and sands are lounged on among the shade of wonderfully scented pine trees. Stay in beach resorts such as those on the Costa Smeralda, for example Porto Cervo, or in Cala Capra, Santa Margherita di Pula, Baia Sardinia and Chia. Hotels in Cagliari, the capital, are also popular, as are those in the Roman town of Nora and hotels in Catalan-influenced Alghero. Walkers after a quieter retreat will love Oliena, too.
Whether you’re after very cheap hotels in Sardinia or you want to enjoy top-class service at one of the island’s exclusive five-star resorts, we can help you to find the best deals. Save yourself the time and effort of comparing dozens of hotel websites and let TravelSupermarket do the hard work for you.
Whatever your budget, whatever your style, we’ve got a hotel in Sardinia for you...
Hotels in Sardinia are mostly found around the white-sand beaches of this beautiful island, which sits in the Mediterranean Sea, just off the “knee” of Italy's boot. Rooms are clean, often spacious, and their owners are keen to extend a welcome befitting their glorious setting.
Several well-known brands have hotels on the island including the exclusive Rocco Forte, Best Western, Sheraton, Mercure, DoubleTree by Hilton, Starwood and Holiday Inn.
If you’re looking for a budget break in Sardinia, hotels should be booked early, as the best bargains tend to be snapped up quickly at the height of the holiday season. If you're prepared to travel outside of the peak months of May to September you’ll be rewarded with cheaper prices – though keep in mind that big resorts might be partially closed and the smaller towns and villages will be very quiet, with some businesses closing for the entire winter season.
Much of Sardinia’s allure lies within its stunning coastal areas, though there are many other wonderful places to see...
