You get the best of both worlds at the family-friendly Baia di Conte, with a relaxing pool scene and a great activities line-up on offer.
This hotel – set to undergo a makeover for May 2015 – is backed by the protected natural park of Porto Conte. It’s got a private beach and, despite its rural setting, the hotel’s only a 20-minute drive from Alghero.
This place is really popular with families, especially in the summer months. That said, there's something for everyone, from a huge list of sports to a peaceful spa.

Great for families but could be improved
We spent two weeks here with our 9 month old son and it suited us for our first family holiday. As is stated on trip advisor - but not so obvious in the Thomson / First Choice brochure - it is definitely geared towards families. 80% of guests had children under 6. This was great for us as there were always plenty of high chairs at dinner, good changing facilities, baby food and nappies in the hotel shop and a good children's section at dinner. Older children can enjoy football, tennis, diving... I wouldn't say this was a platinum hotel - yes it's been refurbished but a lot of it is superficial. What does make it platinum is the service and the location on a gorgeous beach with shallow clear water. We hired a car (it's cheaper to hire it with the Scandinavian Thomson reps than at the hotel car hire kiosk)and explored la pelosa beach, castelsardo, porticciolo.. All well worth a visit. The selection of food was excellent (pizza pasta gluten free children's veggie and vegan) but the quality lacking. All the meat and fish was overdone. Worthy of note is the fantastic meal we had at agriturismo il porticciolo. Luigi kindly picked us up from the hotel and dropped us back after an incredible meal (the best meal we had during our stay - finally perfectly cooked meat and Sardinian specialities). My husband used the gym which had adequate facilities but not enough cardio equipment (no runner or cross trainer just one bike) The pools were lovely despite the usual holiday gripe of reserved sun beds. Also there are not enough umbrellas or sun beds. We often had to go to the beach to find shade for our son. The beach was stunning. Gorgeous views across the bay and lovely clear water. The entertainment was terrible and mostly geared towards the Scandinavian families though I hear there will be a Thomson kids club in 2016. We had a room facing the pool and the entertainment was very loud keeping our son awake but stopped at 10ish. All in all we had a great time at this hotel and the island is stunning! We will return again due to the location and facilities and hope that a few of the teething issues will be resolved. More

We were warned in that the brochure does say popular with families in Summer but we did not expect hordes of children in June which is outside of school holidays. Also, what we didn't realise is that you are never far from a crying baby or a toddler with a tantrum and forget having a swim as you will be surrounded by giant inflatables and kids ignoring every rule in the pool rule book. Similarly, if you want to relax on a sunbed forget that as well as there are not very many (mostly its deck chairs) and they will be covered in towels from dawn onwards. The dining area is pleasant although a bit cafeteriaish and the food is not bad at all and in some cases excellent, though you have to keep an eye open for strollers and high chairs. Our room was extremely pleasant, light and airy and surprisingly spacious with good storage and a nice balcony. The hotel is in a splendid position surrounded by hills inland with a very pleasant cove and private beach seaward. There is a shuttle bus for the short ride into Alghero which is well worth a visit with its narrow cobbled streets, winding alleys and piazzas full of charming cafes and bars. To sum up if you are a family with young children then this is the place for you if not its best that you look elsewhere.More
2nd time around little disappointed
6th of June 2015 returned to the Baia Di Conte Hotel for the 2nd year for two weeks on the understanding that it was upgraded to a Platinum Hotel by the Thompson holiday rep. The staff were as last year fantastic. The only thing that had changed was the dinning area. Instead of White plastic tables and chairs they had wood tables and chairs. The colour scheme was brighter. The food as last year was of good standard. The rooms where light coloured, clean. The air con was good. cleaners came six of the 7 days the hoovered but not mopped the floors. The dinning area had two drinks machine for tea and coffee and cold drinks. There is also two machines in the outside dinning area. They where only switched on breakfast, lunch and dinner. After 22:00 you had to get a coffee at the bar. The pool area was a nightmare if you wanted to have a swim. I tried once and had a floating crocodile hit me on my side and a child just missed my head from jumping in....stick to the beach. Only thing was hunt the sun loungers, loads of deckchairs not enough loungers. They have a gym....No they have a room with some gym equipment in it that hardly works. Last year the one treadmill did not work funny it still not working. Machines not maintained could cause an injury. They have built another eating place outside called the green and grill that was nice. On speaking to Jordan the Thomson with the difference between last year and this. I gave her a list of complaints with my email for feedback I got jack-...t back. Rude I know.... So for those who have children great place for those who want to relax forget it....Enjoy! More

Our second visit
We were recommended by our Thomson rep in June 2014 to re-visit due to a refurbishment of the hotel. Positives: The dining area has been extended and is lovely. That's as far as the "refurbishment " goes The bedrooms are no different apart from colour scheme Air con is very good Beach is lovely Cleaning staff are very nice Negatives: There are 3 hot drink machines that are only available when the dining hall is open (not 24 hours) one of which kept breaking down Insufficient sun beds on the beach to the point of having to get up at 06:00 to claim one! Hundreds of beds by the pool area....... Didn't use the pool as overtaken by majority of the hotel guests and very noisy The shop on site sold tobacco last year but not this year..... Nearest place to buy is a 20 minute bus journey Last year our luggage was taken to our room but not this year Increase of Â£400 in price from last year If you have small children this would work for you but if you want peace and quiet it wouldn'tMore

We travelled to this Hotel with my husband, Sister and Sister-in-law booked with Thomson and had a lovely holiday. The setting for this Hotel is in a Nature Park and it was just great to wake up in the morning to see the view of the bay, and surrounding area. You are not near the Town of Alghero but the Shuttle bus works well, the first one of the day is a little crowded but the bus driver does his best to try and get everyone on. The food and choice was the best I have ever had in an all inclusive and it seemed that ever diet was catered for. WELL DONE. Our waitress Maria was lovely and looked after us well. All the staff work hard to make sure you feel welcome and looked after, really friendly people. A very big thank you goes to our rep Jordyn who was so helpful to us three ladies every time we approached her with a question for help. Nothing was every to much trouble and Jordyn is a real credit to the company. This is a family hotel but there are places for Adults only if you choose. I found the Scandinavian children well behaved and their parents freindly. Have come back with some lovely memories from this holiday and would love to return to Sardinia to explore this lovely unspoilt Island.More
