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.

We have just returned from a week at the Baia Di Conte hotel and what a great week it was. The staff in the hotel couldn't do enough for you. The hotel as everybody seems to point out does look a bit tired from the outside but the inside is kept spotless. The rooms were cleaned daily and again were spotless. It does need an uplift and the AC needs updating but it did the job. The pool was lovely and the hotel has a great beach which was kept tidy and there were 3 lifeguards around everyday. The grounds of the hotel are very well kept. The food was good, breakfast had plenty of choice from cereal, cooked breakfast, pancakes and they would always cook you an omelette. Lunch you had the choice of the buffet or they had burgers, pizza, hot dogs and chips which were served by the pool which ok. Evenings there was a good choice and they always had pasta and chips to get by on. They have evening entertainment Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday which was ok and they even put it on again on our last night which was great. The hotel is very remote but on saying that it does tell you that, however, the bus stop was directly outside the hotel and you could get the beach bus into town which was 5 euros or you could get on the big red open top tour bus which was on a hop on hop off basis for 18 euros and it took you to the old town. All in all we had a great holiday and it will be interesting to see how it looks after the refurb.More

We were made aware by the travel agent that this hotel is due for a makeover before next season, it did from the outside look a little tired! This soon became unnoticed due to the lovely friendly staff ,nothing was too much trouble. Bearing in mind this was the last week of the season everyone put their heart and soul into making our holiday absolutely fantastic!! The rooms were cleaned daily,with fresh clean towels and sheets! Transfer from airport was 20 minutes maximum and Roberta the Thomson rep was so so helpful throughout our stay! The Sardinian trip we booked was also great value and so interesting! The guide and coach driver made it such a fun informative day! The private beach is perfect for everyone and well looked after by the staff with a lifeguard on duty all day. The gardens are beautifully kept too, We look forward to seeing the new look in the new brochure but hope nothing else deters from the fantastic friendly atmosphere inside!More

I've just returned from a week's holiday at Baia di Conte. I'm already missing the weather, but I sadly can't say the same for the resort. Perhaps I'm at fault for expecting a certain degree of quality from a resort which offers all-inclusive service. I feel misled by all of the positive reviews here. Maybe the owners decided to wind things down last week, as it was nearly the end of the season? As Baia di Conte is not within walking distance of anything significant, you'll likely spend most of your time on the premises, unless you have plenty of spending money. I wouldn't wish a single meal from the buffet on my worst enemy. Most of the meat is incredibly salty, as are several other foods. Don't get the salmon, as the chef makes no effort to remove the countless pin-bones. One day they had a salad with salmon flakes in it, and even that had bones! I could tell you about the few decent options available, but why bother? You're either eating the same foods day after day, meal after meal, or you're stepping into a culinary minefield. The rooms are clean-ish but seem far older than I am, right down to the separate beds, as God would have intended. Housekeeping was kind enough to push them together, though. ;) No washcloths, so bring a pouf/loofah/etc. if you're classy like that. Outlets are sparse, so prepare to unplug lamps and such if you have devices to charge. Oh, and maybe I'm just oblivious, but I don't think there's a handle/latch to open the balcony doors from the outside, so be careful not to lock yourself out if no one is on the other end to let you back in! You can get wi-fi credentials at â¬18 per device per week. Mine would log out every time I let my phone fall asleep. Still, it seems like the reception/"lounge" area is the only free zone, so it's worth it if you're looking to connect by the pool, beach, or in your room. You probably don't want to spend much time in reception anyway. The playlist ranges from smooth jazz to some freaky horror movie song I can't begin to reason through. The pool is great. Very clean. Grab a drink at the pool bar while you're at it, but again, avoid the food. The beach is swell, too, though a bit rocky. I tried swimming out a ways but there wasn't much to see in terms of sea life. You'll have to venture elsewhere on the island for that. Thomson offered some excursions for reasonable prices. The Costa Smerelda tour was scenic and relaxing, but maybe geared more towards the older folks! The Sardinian tour was more eventful, and we had a lovely guide and driver. I would have loved to have seen Corsica, but that one was rather expensive. Maybe another time (at another hotel)... There's no allure to the "tapas" "restaurant". It's joined to the buffet, and the food served was only a step above the buffet's. 75% of it could literally be assembled at the buffet. Same staff, after all. The other reviews lead me to believe there used to be more to it. It was only open my last night there, and it's your only option, as the buffet is mostly empty. It's dimly-lit, but there's no ambiance beyond that. Finally, the staff were all quite friendly and helpful. Everyone at the front desk speaks English well enough, and some of the restaurant staff do as well, but that's about it. They fit you with a wristband on arrival, and try as you might, you can't remove it without cutting it. Have fun looking like an obvious tourist wherever you go. All in all, I'm disappointed. Supposedly there will be significant changes in the future, but this place is a lost cause as far as I'm concerned. Sure, there were positives, but the often-inedible food mixed with the ancient rooms, gloomy facilities, and shoddy fitness centre makes for a pretty miserable experience. I was half-expecting a "you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave" deal a la "Hotel California" by the end. Save up your money and visit a resort that gives meaning to the concept of "all-inclusive". Or just find a hotel in Alghero and feel a bit more immersed in the Sardinian culture.More
Was very happy when I got to the room - there was a huge double balcony and with a sea view. I could even see the sea from the bath/shower! The beach was beautiful and the sea was great for swimming and snorkelling. My partner had some sailing lessons too which he organised from the beach. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The all inclusive restaurant had plenty of choice and the wine was good quality. The post dinner Sardinian digestive named "Mirto" was delicious! There was a lovely clothes shop on the premises and as the hotel was closing down for the winter I bought quite a few clothes at half price! We went into Alghero on the "beach bus" which was only 5 euros for the day. There was also a red open top tourist bus which was very reasonable and used this to go to the caves. As they are only 10 minutes from the hotel they are worth a visit if you can cope with the 656 steps down ( and then back up again!). The entrance to the national park is only 500 metres from the hotel and was an amazing afternoon. We hired bikes and cycled for an hour to the most amazing viewpoint of Isola Piana - a small island which you could see from the cliff face with a sheer drop to the sea. One the easy back we saw wild horses and fallow deer. The deer jumped out in front of us as we cycled back! The hotel was closing down for the winter and was very quiet when we were there, but we still had a great time and good service. There was entertainment every other night, and there were a couple of really good singers. The only downside was the poolside restaurant - the food was not very good quality compared to the main restaurant. The pool itself however was lovely. A great choice for a relaxing holiday. The flight is only 2 hours from the UK and the hotel only 20 minutes from the airport. There are plenty of things to do close to the hotel, so you don't have to travel too far for anything.More
We had the greatest time ever at Baia di Conte with our two teenagers+ friend and girlfriend. Nice beach beautiful setting and lots of food. Esecially the bread was fabulous, abosolutly world class, the wine nice, enough selection of drinks and a pleasant tapas-dinner. We had such pleasant meals, played tennis and boccia and after dinner cards. Just chilling and having a good time. The satff is very friendly and helpful. We also rented a car and went to NepuneÂ´s Grotto and walked the stairs from hell, you shouldnÂ´t go there if youÂ´re not fit. ThereÂ´s the option to go by boat but it looked terrifying as the wawes were so high the boat couldnÂ´t be tied when peolple had to go on and off. We also went to La Pelosa- Stintino. It might have been the most beatiful sand we ever have seen, and lovely turquise water, the problem was it was so crowded you could hardly se any sand. There is a lovly mountaintown futher north called Castelsardo, good for a lunchstop. But really, if you like us are at Baia di conte for just one week there is no need to go anywere else.More
