Parco Blu Club Hotel Resort
Ranked #1 of 20 Hotels in Cala Gonone
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2017

We have just returned home from spending 10 nights at the Parco Blu and had a fantastic time. The hotel management and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Mirella, Simone, Giorgia, Nanni and Federica were especially kind given our limited Italian. The food was lovely and there was plenty of choice. The room was a small family room with a balcony and our kids enjoyed the novelty of having bunk beds. We were rarely in our room as we spent most of our time at the beach and pool.
Visiting the Grotte del Blue Marino is a must-see and the accompanying mini-cruise took us to some beautiful secluded beaches with crystal clear waters and an abundance of fish to see whilst snorkelling.
The entertainment at the hotel wasn't for us but plenty of guests seemed to be enjoying it.
We also made the 2 1/2 hour trip to Aquadream which is a high-adrenalin water park in Costa Smerelda. Whilst the park is a little shabby the rides are great and our kids loved it there.
Another highlight was the Aquarium which is just round the corner from Parco Blu. It is small but the exhibits were all fascinating and the touch-pool proved to be a big hit with adults and children alike.
We rarely return to places but the Parco Blu and surrounding area may well prove too enticing to resist again.

Probably the first thing to mention about this hotel is the food, it's just fantastic. Buffet for all three meals, lots of sea food, something for every taste.

We had a family (triple) room. Kept very clean, everything worked. We faced the swimming pool, the entertainment show was rather loud in the evenings but without it the hotel's offer would be poorer. And if the window is closed you can hardly hear anything.

The one drawback I'll have to mention is that the swimming pool closes at 7 pm. And it really closes, as in someone ropes it off and starts stacking the beach chairs. It somehow makes sense, mind you: the pool is very close to the restaurant and as dinner starts at 7:30 pm the hotel wouldn't want some pool die-harders to provide extra entertainment for the diners.

The hotel is about 10' walk to the beach (there is shortcut at the back at the hotel, well quicker than the road). Alternatively, you can just take the bus provided by the hotel, it comes reasonably quickly. The beach is pebbles, there is no sand. The pebbles are small though and then you don't get sand in all your crevices so it's probably a positive.

Mind you: Cala Gonone is on the east side of some rather tall mountains. Most of the beach no longer sees the sun by 6 pm mid-July, I guess by end-August the sun would set even earlier. If you are into staying late on the beach basking in the sunset, Cala Gonone is not the place for you. If you would normally leave the beach by 6-6:30 to get ready for a fabulous dinner, this is certainly a great hotel for it.

All in all, a holiday we've immensely enjoyed.

We stayed at Parco Blu in the Last week of June.

We rented one of the new and larger "superior room" with a Jacuzzi on the balcony.

The room was excellent, brand new and very clean. Bathroom, beds, Jacuzzi, AC and a large TV mounted on the wall surpassed our expectations. View from the room was fantastic with the Sardinian sea and the Cala Gonone's mountains, we witnessed spectacular sunrises in the morning.

Giannina (the owner) and all personnel were very helpful with reservations for tours and transfers. Food at the buffet was very good (we chose "Pensione Completa"), and the Chef use to prepare a BBQ with fresh fish and meats for dinner.

Our son enjoyed the swimming pool and the Cala Gonone's beach. Gianfranco the Capo-Villaggio was very friendly. He is truly an artist, funny and entertaining with guests.

Location at Cala Gonone is very good, we recommend visiting the "Grotte del Bue Marino" and the small beaches: Cala Luna and Cala Goritze. They all can be visited via a boat leaving from "Porto di Cala Gonone". We also enjoyed a day trip to Barbagia, with delicious food (Porcetto and Pecorino) and Cannonau wine. There are also plenty of excellent restaurants, walking distance from the Hotel.

We live in the U.S. and visit Italy every year, we will definitively try to be back again :)

Room Tip: Superior Rooms are brand New, Jacuzzi on the balcony is great

Nothing but good things to say about our three nights here. Best example of the experience was when we had to leave a night earlier than planned because of a family issue, a non refundable night we had already paid for, they insisted that we have our money back before we left. There was also one instance of too much noise one night, and the manager took care of this immoderately as soon as we brought it to her attention. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone travelling with a small child especially. They were great to us, and what a beautiful area.

We have stayed there for a week in July. The hotel staff was super friendly and accommodated all our needs, including changing the room when we didn't like the one we were given initially (a bit too much noise from the entertainment by the pool). The room condition and amenities were very good, we've particularly appreciated the organized beach umbrellas, but the main highlight of the trip was of course Cala Gonone itself and the surroundings - amazing beaches with snorkeling opportunities, secluded beaches reachable only by boat or by foot, plenty of non-beach sights as well (for example a beautiful cave right on the city boundary, and super impressive canyon Gorropu is just a 40-minute drive plus a 2-hour hike away).

Room Tip: Consider rooms further away from the pool if you like to sleep before 23:00

We spent a week in this resort, we read all the reviews and that is why we decided to stay in Parco blu. Clearly the reviews were correct and very adjusted to the reality.
The room was spacious and very very clean as all the hotel, they clean the bedroom every day, which is great and not so common.
The personal was super friendly and always help us with a big smile to any requirement as for example a late check-out.

The pool was clean and the beach is amazing, cristal waters, you can see the fishes, very calm for kids, the resort provides you chairs and beach umbrellas, they even install them for you.
The animation team was friendly, although they did not speak any english, as we don't speak italian we never participate in anything but it's fine, we have a small child, but they have activies for kids from 6 years I would say.

The food was incredibly good, you have white, red wine included in lunch and dinner, also juices and waters, the breakfast is every day the same but it's enough: a lot of pastries, bread, cheese and eggs. The lunch was different every day, same as dinner, you have every day 4 options for pasta, they were delicious and also you have barbecue every dinner.
Personal at the restaurant are really nice and helpful.
We spent a wonderful week, we were very relaxed and we ate well at the amazing beach, we will back next year definetely.
