With its three hotels and 600 rooms, the Marina Resort is a good place to stay in Orosei.
Well-organised and surrounded by gardens that give it a truly relaxing atmosphere, this resort is a good solution for older couples or for families with young children.
The resort is fully equipped with ramps to facilitate movement around the site and it has many sports facilities which are also used by non-residents. The swimming pool is one of the largest in Italy and will keep everyone entertained, regardless of their age.

    Location 6.5 /10

    The hotel is halfway between the centre of Orosei and the public beach. Orosei is the new centre of the province of Nuoro, recently reorganised into a smaller area (Ogliastra) which includes the municipalities of Dorgali, Orosei, Siniscola and Budoni.
    The region of Sosalinos is nearby with its pine forest that borders the coast.
    In late May, the hotel is the scene of the 'Festival of the Sea', a celebration of religious origin that runs through the village, from the cross to the river, and ends with a procession of flower-covered boats carrying the Virgin Mary.
    The deeply religious soul of Orosei (linked to its agricultural roots) has resulted in frequent celebrations and an impressive number of churches: there are 26 in the latter, in this village of only 6,000 inhabitants.

    Accommodation 7.25 /10

    Located on the various different floors of the main building, the 500 rooms of the largest hotel are set around a courtyard that separates the various areas of the establishment.
    Ramps on each floor and six lifts facilitate movement for elderly and guests with reduced mobility.
    The doors of the rooms are equipped with a very modern, certified security system (with electronic keys). The standard rooms (single, double, triple and family rooms) are spread across two distinct areas (usually separated by an arched opening) and decorated in light colours (sky blue dominates) with traditional fabrics (embroidered bedspreads). The floors are tiled however the rooms do not have a cold atmosphere as a result. They overlook the garden with a view of the sea or the pool and have a small balcony furnished with a table. The atmosphere is peaceful and they are rather airy and cool, which is much appreciated in summer.
    The rooms have wireless Internet connection (costs extra) which can only be accessed using the guests' own computers (There is no Internet Point in the hotel, ed.)
    Particular attention has been paid to the materials used in the bathroom (the shower is made from granite), but they are generally not very large. Nevertheless, they are neat and clean and a range of hospitality products is provided.

    Overview 7.50 /10

    A large staircase leads guests to the entrance of this establishment with its sparkling colours and marble surfaces. The multi-coloured façade, in shades of blue and pink, gives the entrance an especially bright and dramatic feel to it.
    A sort of 'Versailles' effect is especially evident in the layout of the gardens opposite the main entrance and, in particular, in the distribution of the spaces in different 'blocks' throughout the garden. The garden itself is very elegant, with well-maintained flower beds and pathways which are large enough for golf carts to get around.
    A more mature clientele was staying at the hotel at the time of our visit (late May), no doubt because of the milder weather and the relaxing atmosphere that emanates throughout the entire complex. Later, in mid to late June, the hotel accommodates families with children and school groups on summer trips.
    The main building is laid out in a circle, with ramps to facilitate access. Inside, a patio with a garden adds to the decor. There are pleasant views in all directions, especially towards the mountains.
    The hotel offers a range of sports and recreational facilities. Apart from the large theatre, 'La Marina', which is the centre for activities, sporting events and evening entertainment, the Marina Resort also provides designated areas for meetings and conferences; many companies (banks, organisations, universities) and private guests use these rooms for their professional meetings.
    There is also a wide selection of football pitches (grass!), mini-football pitches (synthetic), tennis courts (6 in total), a boules area and more. A large playground is available for younger guests while the small pathways are paved to facilitate getting around.
    A club card is required for guests staying at the other two hotels who wish to take advantage of the communal sporting and recreational facilities (entertainment, gym, beach) and costs £31 per week (children under 5 are free). The grounds are open from early June to late September and the rental of deckchairs and parasols on the beach is charged for the first two rows at a price of £95 per week (first row) and £71 per week (second row).

    Food and drink 6.50 /10

    The main restaurant at the Marina is one of the largest and most impressive we have seen in our reporting on the hotels of this island.
    A sea of tables extends out before you in this space, which can accommodate no less than 1200 people! In fact, the ambiance when full is unique, although it is a bit like eating in a large dining hall. Given the noise level, it is difficult to find this place truly relaxing.
    In addition to this huge hall which hosts buffets three times a day, the restaurant has a veranda that can accommodate up to 400 people, however do not expect a romantic atmosphere here either. In both areas, the tables are served by 600 waiters who are managed by 3-4 head waiters. However, apart from the noise, the restaurant is well organised and there is adequate space between tables. Each guest keeps the same table for the duration of their stay. The style is a bit old-fashioned but nonetheless charming: there is plenty of wood in light tones.
    As for menu, the restaurant offers a selection of typical and international dishes; theme nights are also organised based on products of the earth (Sardinian dinner) and of the sea (fisherman's dinner).
    The resort's second restaurant, La Pagoda, offers a more intimate atmosphere, with its veranda in shades of pale green. Located beside the pool, it offers a faster service which is much appreciated by guests who like to make the most of the beach.
    Mr. Gesuino also took us to visit the kitchens so we could see the extreme attention paid to the ingredients and to cleanliness. The menu has a number of special dishes (5 starters and 2 main courses) for diabetics and guests with gluten intolerance.
    Finally, near the main restaurant, there is a large room that is used for banquets and special occasions. Divided by a row of columns decorated with mosaics and a few round tables, this room can also put on film projections (a small cinema is organised during the low season). With its control room, capacity of up to 900 guests and indigo blue decor, this is the main location for indoor events.

    Beach 6.80 /10


    The nearest beach, which is just over 1 mi away, is accessible by the free shuttle service offered by the hotel.
    This is a public beach that stretches along the coast for miles, but there are no deckchairs or parasols provided.
    Frequented by locals and guests of neighbouring hotels, it can be very windy, but it has the advantage of being safe for children because the beach slopes gently into the water.
    Otherwise, you can always opt for the beach of Marina di Orosei, 4 mi away, which is also accessible via a bicycle path that circles the pine forest. This path runs along the beach that connects Orosei to Marina di Orosei and also constitutes a great place for some beautiful walks...
    Finally, a word about Biderrosa Park (7.5 mi away) which is particularly interesting: it is a protected natural park that includes at least five beaches. Every day, access (for a fee) is granted to a limited number of people, and it is therefore advisable to book in advance.
