Back in August Piccola and I decided that a break on the sea was needed, we couldn't wait for the long holiday in Cuba at the end of November (watch this space...!) so after quite some search we settled for the hotel La Bitta near Arbatax. We've been to Sardinia several times but never to this Ogliastra region which is wonderful, an interesting combination of beautiful beaches and rugged mountains with some quite spectacular views. Unlike in other parts of the island, we felt very welcome everywhere we went.
Hotel La Bitta overlooks a small quaint bay which is partly open to the public. The private section is very well kept. The hotel is quintessentially classic Italian: a slightly retro style (it celebrates its 50th anniversary this year); well appointed rooms; everything spotlessly clean; very professional staff, most helpful and with that touch of formality which is typical of these places. We had only two dinners but one was excellent. The starter was very sophisticated: a mini tuna burger on a mash of purple potato; a small mozzarella with thin slices of bottarga; smoked salmon on fillets of fennel and courgette; closed by a small soup of mussels and clams - all to die for! The main course was a classic seabream (orata) with grilled chicory, courgette and aubergine - delicious. All accompanied by one of the hundreds variations of Vermentino, one of my favourite Italian whites.
La Bitta is not cheap but it was a classic, relaxing, head clearing break to remember. Recommended.
Until next time...

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a sufficiently spacious balcony.

We spent 3 weeks in Italy for our honeymoon and La Bitta was by far our favorite hotel of the trip. We chose it for the location as it's right on the beach and in a small cove. We couldn't have been happier with the service. The restaurant staff were great, the reception staff were very helpful, and the spa staff were incredible, not to mention the spa location/ view! The turndown service was a nice touch. We opted to not do the meal package as we read reviews that the buffet restaurant was further back in the hotel. The full service restaurant had better views and a larger menu and we were happy with our choice.

If you stay here we highly recommend renting a boat and going to the beach Cala Goloritze.

Thanks La Bitta!

This is not a review of the hotel as we unfortunately had to postpone our booking at the last minute due to ill-health, but I need to commend the response we got. The staff were so very understanding and sympathetic and they have held on to our deposit for us to use any time next year. It was so good to have a swift and positive response and as soon as my problems are sorted out we will re-book.

My family and I stayed at La Bitta for a week in August, half board. Our ground floor room - facing the sea, over looking the pool - was quiet, spacious and very clean. All the staff we encountered - from house keeping to front desk and restaurant staff - were friendly and professional with the wait staff in the restaurant working particularly hard to meet the needs of guests. The hotel is well situated on the bay in Arbatax with a private beach just a few steps from the hotel and a swimming pool over looking the sea. At around 4pm each day staff offered hotel guests by the pool and beach a slice of watermelon which I thought was a nice touch.

If you are a couple looking for a quiet, comfortable, mid-level hotel on the water in which to just relax and take in the sea, sun and pool then La Bitta is a good choice. If you are looking for a more activity filled holiday, with or without children, then La Bitta's sister hotel, Hotel Sacareno, ten minutes up the road might be a better choice. Hotel Sacareno is a larger resort type of hotel offering sailing, boating, children's club, tennis, larger lap pool and other fitness activities as well as a private beach. We took a very enjoyable half day dingy boat trip from Hotel Sacareno, booked through the front desk at La Bitta, exploring the beaches of Costa di Baunei which are only accessible by boat.

I found the food at La Bitta to be mixed and on a couple of occasions disappointing - when the dishes were local or Italian cuisine then they were very good but when the restaurant tried to do dishes from other parts of the world they were lacking in flavour and consistency - just stick to what you do best which is Italian cuisine. The wait staff in the restaurant deserve a special mention - they worked exceptionally hard.

A few suggestions for the management - the air conditioning in the restaurant needs attention: it offered inadequate cooling in the evening, consider allowing guest to responsibly use the small fridge in their rooms for their own small water bottles, fruit etc. - I have stayed in hotels all over the world and never seen had a 4 star hotel charge guests to use the fridges in their rooms, consider removing the sign in the bathroom that asks guests not to wipe their shoes or motorbikes with the hotel towels - surely this isn't necessary and doesn't add to the otherwise pleasant ambience of the room!

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at La Bitta and would recommend the hotel for a couple looking for a sun and sea break in a quiet, comfortable 4 star hotel with good service.

We stayed for a week here and felt very comfortable. Rooms are small (fine for single occupancy but a bit cramped for double) but spotlessly clean. Shower rooms are small and functional. Breakfast is good - buffet-style and plenty of choice. The pool area is lovely and views spectacular - the piped music was the only spoiler here although this was turned off for our last couple of days. Staff were friendly and helpful although service generally was a bit patchy. The one huge criticism I have is that the allocated beach towel was changed only once during the week - I would have expected these to be changed on demand as with most other hotels.

Dear DaisyHen
thank you for choosing the Bitta for your holidays! Let me remind you that the beach towel is changed once a week but upon request you can change it whenever you want. This information is contained in the book in every room, maybe not noticed because of a lapse!
