This morning, after some breakfast ice cream we headed south, destination Cagliari. The drive was smooth, scenic, and filled with grazing sheep. I used some leftover points to get us a room at a Holiday Inn close to the airport.
We didn't research Cagliari too much, but it seems like a decent city. The food is alright, the old town is pretty, and the vibe is laid back. ...
... which made what she said easy to understand. She said she had come to Nuoro "for love" - love turns out to be "the cook with the big hat", she said. Ahh, the chef. She asked where we had travelled and obviously knew the winding roads only too well as she pretended to throw up mimicking car sickness. It was a good quality local meal and the night was made even more memorable by the owner.
We found our drive inland to be almost as enjoyable as the coast ...
... It was a pleasant although winding drive (can't get away from the mountains it seems) but also very quiet on the road. So it was nothing like Montenegro! The countryside so far seems to resemble a cross between Aus and Spain. In fact Porto Pinto itself reminds Paul of SA's Yorke Peninsula.
On the hills above the beach are the ruins of a fort from WWII which we weren't expecting to see. If you were in Spain there would ...
Cagliari, Sardinia. The morning greeted us with bright sunshine and pleasant temperatures, which made our approach to Cagliari even more beautiful due to the weather we had encountered in previous days. We stood out on deck marvelling at this Sardinian capital and bustling port city whose monuments date back to Phoenician and Roman beginnings. As we are eager to explore this new port we hit the gangplank as soon as we had clearance to leave the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Baia di Nora Pula
We've returned from the Baia di Nora and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a complete break. We did nothing for two weeks! But we needed it. Some may find it a bit boring, the only thing we had to think about was where to sit for dinner (until we had our table allocated for us for the remainder of our stay).
Have just returned from eight days at this hotel and really enjoyed the experience.Lovely hotel in spectacular gardens right on the beach.Good size rooms although the bathroom only had a somewhat cramped shower and no bath.Excellent staff in general although there is a somewhat authoritarian regime over the issue of extra towels for the beach/pool.However my complaint on this matter was personally and sympathetically dealt with by the manager.Stayed on a bed and breakfast basis so cannot comment on the lunch or dinner meals.Plenty to eat for breakfast from a comprehensive buffet.The nearby town of Pula is small and unpretentious in a charming way.There is a surprisingly wide selection of good ,reasonably priced restaurants in the town.I had hired a car from the airport and found this to be essential as the hotel is a bit out of town.Also it allowed several visits to the surrounding area including the city of Cagliari and excellent beaches at nearby Chia.Weather was excellent and it is somewhere that I would definately return to.
Arrived in mid September. Stepped off the plane into the middle of a thunder storm and it rained all day!!! Was really concerned that the weather was going to be disappointing at ths time of year but for the rest of the week, the sun shone and shone!!
My boyfriend and I have just got back from a week at the Baia di Nora. Whilst the hotel setting, pool and beach are faultless, the food was unbelievably bad, in fact it was probably the worst food I have ever been served in a hotel. I can only think that the food has gone significantly downhill since other people's reviews on this website, as there is absolutely no way that I would ever recommend anyone going to this hotel purely because the food was so bad. This is a shame, as we spent two weeks in Sardinia and all of the other restuarants we ate at had great food, and other than this, the hotel is good. Having paid for half board we ate in the Baia di Nora restaurant for 3 nights, and ended up going into Pula to local restaurants. Most of the other hotel guests did this, obviously showing that we were not alone in our thoughts on the incredibly poor food.
The hotel is set in the most idyllic location. It is set in a small bay with wonderful views of Nora on the right. The bedrooms were immaculately clean, amply proportioned with all the features you would require, air conditioning, comfortable beds, mini bar large bathroom which was suitable for disabled people as well. The whole complex was well designed in particular the bedrooms, in that the room attendants did not have to enter your room via the patio doors at the front, but by a rear entrance. The bedrooms overlooked the gardens and during our stay they were in full bloom and they were absolutely beautiful. The gardeners seemed to work everyday keeping them maintained and keeping them in fantastic condition.
My wife and I have just returned from staying at the Baia di Nora. The Hotel, its staff and especially the food and service was just incredible.
We stayed in a first floor standard room, with wonderful views across the gardens, very peaceful and relaxing.
We cannot thank all the hotel staff enough for making our holiday so enjoyable from the moment we arrived until ( sadly ) the end of our holiday.
Just a quick review for someone who wants a bit of class in an unspoilt area of sardinia. One of the friendliest hotels we have stayed in, the food is superb - really - and the mark-up on the wines not excessive (unlike some smart hotels). You need a car to explore and go past Chia for some stunning unspoilt wild beaches. The beach at the hotel is pleasant enough though. In seasoin I am sure the long beach becomes rather crowded but out of season it is almost empty except for families at weekends. We stayed a week and are definately going back next year before the mid/high season prices kick in. Great value then.
Fantastic food and nice beach
We are in our early thirties and were looking for a relazing beach holiday with good food. This hotel surpassed our expectations, especially with their food. Outstanding really!! The menu changes every day and the food is fresh and extremely tasty. It is not overcrowded and just soooooooooooo relaxing.
My friend and I went to the Baia Nora at the end of August 2004 for a chill out week. Neither of us had been to Sardinia before.
