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.

My partner and I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Baia di Conte set in a stunning location. The hotel upon arrival is unattractive but once you enter it is a different story. The bar, reception and dinning area is spacious and the hotel is very clean. Housekeeping are like little fairies, you hardly see them but everywhere is always spotless. The staff are all very friendly and happy to help. The General Manager, Paolo was very hands on which is always good to see and he made a point of asking how I was after feeling poorly and said if there was anything I needed then to let him know. which we appreciated. The gardens of the hotel are immaculate and beautiful as is the setting that awaits you on the beach. White powder sands and the view of National park is all you could ask for a beach fronted location. The Taverna and the Green and Grill offer exceedingly high quality food but as Brits, you are only allowed 1 visit per stay (even if you are here for 2 weeks) extra visits are charged at 20 Euros each. Other nationalities however are allowed 2 visits to each. Shuttle bus to Alghero - excellent! Unfortunately there were downsides to the hotel, flies in the buffet restaurant are a continuous problem at any time of day and yes they do land of the food as they is nothing in place to stop this. Free Wifi, this worked once in 14 nights of our stay. Hairdryer in bathroom, broke (but reception replaced this with a proper dryer for me for the whole of the stay which I appreciated with long hair!) The extractor fan in the bathroom did not work (neither did it for a few other guests that we asked). We asked 3 times at reception for someone to take a look and as far as we know this never happened as it was never fixed. The bathroom door had to be left open at all times. The rooms are very small and the balcony ridiculously narrow. However you got use to the size and they were kept clean. Our room faced a type of loading bay which there was noise from early every morning. The buffet restaurant closes a 9.30pm and a 9.20pm you are asked to make your last selection as they are closing in 10 mins. Not what you really want on holiday. I have read a few people have complained about the children, we were there as a couple but the children were not a problem for us as we expected it in August at a family hotel. We also stayed in the adult area by the pool. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, for the location and the people/staff, but Thomsons/First choice should not have this hotel under their Platinum range. Although the hotel was supposed to have recently been refurbished, we could not tell that from our room. I always travel with Thomson/First Choice and feel this time it did not live up to my normal expectations.More

Great For Families and yes there are other nationalities !
Just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks @ Baia Di Conte. A lovely family resort as advertised, maybe people without children should take note. It was a safe environment for children, who could be allowed some freedom (we did not witness any children running riot). Food was of a high standard for a buffet style restaurant and varied enough to serve most tastes over 1-2 weeks. Pool and surrounding areas were constantly kept clean and were not over busy considering size of hotel and it being the height of the summer season. Rooms were a good size and cleaned daily, but could be improved beyond the current refurbishment, but we didn't spend much time in there anyway. Beach was excellent, brilliant for kids as calm and very safe . Entertainment was great for kids and the team worked really hard to keep everyone entertained. This hotel is a Blue Village and this is mainly for the Scandinavian market and shock horror there is a lot of Scandinavians there, they do have a right to be on holiday too! We would agree with many of the positive reviews that have been made and would certainly recommend this hotel to others.More

Excellent Family Holiday
We are a couple with two children aged 9 and 12 and visited the first two weeks of August. Wasn't sure what to expect after the refurbishment and other traveller reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Not sure what others are complaining about at this price level and is a family resort so of course there are loads of kids! The hotel itself is large and airy although it is still a little dated. All areas are clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the manager Paolo was available and always ready to help. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds, powerful shower, good air con, free safe and are kept clean. Free beach towels provided. No iron in the room. The buffet area was large and kept spotlessly clean. The food was excellent, couldn't fault the choices provided and don't know how anyone could complain. It was a nice change to visit the Green & Grill and the Taverna too. The pool area was spacious and having the beach so close was fantastic too. There is definitely a shortage of sunbeds and you do have to get up early to snag one - one of the downsides which hopefully will be rectified by next year. We didn't sit out on the beach, tended to stay by the pool but the amount of beach sellers was quite intrusive on such a small area, walking past every two minutes. The entertainment was great for children, quite cheesy but that's fine - you're on holiday! We booked a car through Thomson before we went and visited Alghero, Neptune's Caves and a waterpark in Isola Rossa called AquaFantasy which was small but great for the kids. We went snorkelling for an afternoon, also through Thomson, which is worth a go and we hired a pedalo too. The Wifi is not great, don't know if this is something which can be improved...maybe Thomson could say 'intermittent wifi' instead of 'free wifi' Overall we had an excellent holiday and there is no greater compliment than the fact that we have already booked for next year. People who have complained need to remember the price point of this 'family' holiday but I think some people will always find fault,More

Has to be one of the best hols ever
I have just returned from a fabulous hol, 2 brill weeks at the hotel. Sunbeds are an issue, but trust me the hotel is going to be resolving this issue for next season. The food was amazing, best ever , with michelin star chef over seeing the cooking/menu. Lots for children and adults to choose from. Thompson have placed this in the platinum section, this is mainly a family/children holiday, lots of things for children/teenagers to do and the hotel staff as so helpful. But as an adult with one teenager and in a party of 8 with 2 younger children it was ok. We sat by the pool everyday and the children having fun did not bother me at all. The best trip is def the day trip on Andrea Jensen sail boat, thro the thompson rep and the neptune caves is a must. I loved it that much, I wanted to stay another 1 week, the 2 weeks went by in a flash. I personally can not faulty the hotel, staff and management etc. The hotel thro thompson does not have alot of rooms on hold for uk travellers, I do think thompson needs to re look at this. Rooms an hotel has to been the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at. xMore

I came back a few days ago from this hotel, and I'm truly glad I'm back home. I don't know where to start, I'm going to make it at short as possible. Firstly the staff at this hotel are so miserable, every time I walked passed them they didn't bother smiling or anything, they gave me a blank stare which wasn't welcoming at all. The only staff that was actually nice were the maids. This hotel is definitely not platinum, it's a dated building, with hardly any view (unless you're on the top floor) the pool is nice and deep, but it's full of Scandinavian kids and the bottom of the pool is all green. The food is basically the same, every day myself and my family lived off the same thing! I was expecting to be blown away with the Pasta and Pizza, but it was awful, the Pasta was hard and cold, the Pizza was Cold and they didn't have much choice of toppings. I didn't enjoy my meals, everything at the buffet was cold, and didn't look appetising whatsoever! The only positive thing about this hotel was the beach (which isn't really the hotel..) the sea was lovely and clear, however it still had its negatives, sun beads were limited, if you wanted one you have to get up at 6:30am. Myself and Family were all inclusive, but we still had to pay for certain drinks on the menu, which in my opinion is cheeky. The animation team (entertainers) didn't seem to smile at anyone besides children under 5. This hotel is awful, we only stayed for one week and experienced a lot of bad things, I will certainly NEVER be returning to this hotel and I advise you don't even bother trying it, as I imagine you also will have a terrible experience. This hotel really needs to up its game, I would've rather camped out for a week than stay in this place, worst vacation ever!! More
