The staff, the ladies who serve breakfast, the reception, the cleaning lady all fantastic. Position very good, close to port and bus stop, close to beaches. Larger beach 15 mins walk. Very lively resort with plenty of restaurants, night market, music etc Would recommend.

Lovely HotelPosted Oct 2, 2015
Was in Palau for a long weekend, and was ideal for a nice relaxing short break. Small beach only a few minutes away, just past the harbour. Madellena Island only 20 minutes away by ferry.

Lovely hotel, great location for all ages & needsPosted Jul 3, 2015
Pros: Very clean, furnished classic Sardinian style. Staff very helpful and friendly. Cool, quiet room. Continental breakfast good. Bar, relaxing. Great!
Cons: This was a great holiday - no improvements necessary! We long to go back again. We want to give special thanks to Anya, Alessandro, Elenor, Pierra (?)
Location: The nearby beaches are pleasant, but quieter, picturesque beaches only a short drive away and are beautiful. Do try a boat trip - 35 - 400 euros pp!
We booked Hotel Vecchia Fonte after reading guests ratings, and then had serious worries that we had got it wrong this time. We worried that Palau was a small town but not a quaint old Sardinian town, by a car park, busy port with ferry boats, but all of our worries were unfounded. Palau is easy to get to from Olbia airport, the hotel very easy to find. The town is a fairly basic small town, but there is some interesting typical Sardinian architecture. Palau is a happy place - there are restaurants, cafes, pizzerias to suit all tastes and budgets - the standard of food excellent. Try a different place most nights, but then find the one that you like best and go back there - the staff will remember you and welcome you as friends. On our second night there was dancing in the square by the hotel and the local people, young and old, all joined in with obviously traditional Sardinian style 'Strictly' dancing. Even the children stayed out with their families until very late. The market is every night, next to the hotel, great for browsing after a delicious meal finished off with a yummy ice cream.The Sardinian people are lovey, warm and welcoming and can't do enough to help you. Most speak a little or a lot of English, but if not,don't worry, hand gestures work just as well!
