    Bedroom a little small but very adequate. Sadly we had much rain but still very relaxing.

    Loved the terrace, cosy seating area, garden, jacuzzi, food and location. Cala Gonone had everything.

    Just some of the rooms are newly renovated - ask for one of the new rooms. we had older rooms with somewhat dated bathrooms etc Parking costs 6€ a day and the machine is tedious to handle - ask for one of the hotel vouchers for 4€ but apparently there are no sufficient quantities of vouchers (not an issue but we learned about this late) Beach service (umbrella etc) costs 10€ per day (not an issue but we were not aware)

    Location, staff, spacious rooms, the patron is a great and helpful guy and fluent in not only Italian but also German, English and French (and maybe more languages...:-)..); lots of restaurants along the promenade overall we had a real great time and can only recommend!!!

    The location was excellent, cross the road and you're at the beach and a short walk to great bars and restaurants. Breakfast each morning on the terrace overlooking the sea was beautiful and there was plenty of choice. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful - they arranged transfers to and from the airport so completely stress free for us. We will definitely choose Costa Dorada again if we return to Cala Gonone, thank you for a fabulous holiday!

    The facility is outdated with poor installations and steadily clodged sewage. After two repair attempts we had to change the room. I would reccomend a serious repair work and thoroughful rennovation or a downgrade to three stars status until the rennovation succeeds.. Poor breakfast like in a two stars hotel and quite unpracticable internet connection. The TV is set on German stations only. As a guest you feel a stingy and stressed management.

    The Location and the vegetation around are really enjoyable, with the exception of the quite close disco, which is loud until late in the night. The hotel has a generous and comfortable lounge with piano, generally empty. Who needs such a facility in a beach hotel ?

    Far from the port which is the most important place to visit in Cała Gonone. The air-conditioning was not working properly (25-26 degr C in the night, not effective AC for the size of the room). Sea-view room has a sea view from the balcony only (but directly over smoking area of the staff and trasy bins); the other windows were directed to the technical part. There were lots of ants in the bathroom and sleeping room. The room was located on two levels (internal staircase) and was suggested as a room for families with children. No night-light in the stairs what results in slipping of the stairs. We tried to ask for double room without staircase but it was "impossible" for the staff (double room is not proper for two people and a small child even if they want to sleep in one bed). The communication skills of the owner should be improved. The close proximity of the beach results that during check -in times there are no parking spaces in the area. It took us 1 hour to find a place to stop for unloading the lagguage. There are no extra facilities for children in the hotel.

    Good breakfast. Not so far to aquarium.

    We didn't like our room. It really needed to be restored. It had a smell of fungus which worried us a lot. We saw some other rooms that were restored and they seemed nice. So a good idea is to ask for that.

    Breakfast with the man making egg and bacon made the breakfast very good. The owner and the staff were nice. The garden was like the garden of Eden. Fantastic with the birds, trees and beautiful flowers. Nice restaurants in the neighbourhood, especially "Favorita." Very beautiful sunset and to walk by the sea.

    It's not a 4 star hotel. It's very expensive for what it actually is - a 2 star hotel. Parking is by the hotel but it costs 6 euros per day. The traffic wardens are always out. The hot tubs were cold and smelly. Our room was dark. The facilities are from the 80s. There was only a shower. Our bed was made up as twins with bedding tucked in - not great on our honeymoon! Lol.

    The scrambled eggs are delicious. The location is amazing.

    All staff of Costa Dorada was very welcoming, friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was amazing, a lot of variety and the omelet and scrambled egg were made on the spot, beautiful! Dinner was delicious as well. Access to beach is excellent as it is only a few steps, also beach chairs and umbrella were for hire on a private part ofvthe (pebble) beach. Great location, near shops and restaurants as well. Overall i would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Bed was hard, pillows were hard. The bathroom was a little dated, shower head could stand to be changed, toilet flusher seemed as though it were about to break and the shower door was missing a hinge. Very minor things.

    Great breakfast, delicious eggs, bacon, bread, lots of variety. The housekeeping staff work very hard and keep the place very clean. Location is great, right across the street from the beach. Cute, quaint small Italian hotel. A/C worked great and the windows really helped keep the cool in. Very hot while we were there.
