4-star hotels on the island of Sardinia (Sardegna) are a good compromise between the level of comfort and the price of 5-star hotels. The average cost of a double room in season is from 150 to 250 EUR per day.
Based on the reviews of my friends, clients, and readers of our site, I have compiled a selection of the best 4-star hotels in Sardinia with their own beaches. Most options include a swimming pool, a restaurant, and spa treatments.
