The final stop on our Italian island adventure was the 7Pines Resort Sardinia – Destination by Hyatt. After driving from La Villa del Re (full review here), we were excited for this new resort near Porto Cervo (the hotel opened in August 2022). The hotel delivered all we had hoped for and more.

Anthony’s Take: 7Pines Resort Sardinia – Destination by Hyatt is a jewel in the Hyatt portfolio. It offers several pools, a beach, impeccably manicured grounds, several restaurants, spa, tennis courts, basketball court, fitness center, kids club, and more. Elite recognition is great at this hotel and Hyatt Globalist status got us an upgrade (using a Suite Night Award certificate), a delicious breakfast, and late checkout.

7Pines Booking


I booked a 1 King Bed Garden View Room for 40,000 points per night. Then, I applied a Suite Night Award certificate (SNA) to upgrade to a Lagoon View Suite. If I were to pay the cash rate for this suite, it would have been €3,830 plus taxes per night. The standard room (1 King Bed Garden View Room) would have cost €1,521. This was a great redemption since the cash cost was so high. Rooms at the hotel range from 35,000 to 45,000 based on whether you’re booking an off-peak, standard, or peak rate). Suites can be booked between 56,000 and 90,000 points.

Transportation To/From the Hotel

We had our rental car and drove the 282 kilometers in around 3.5 hours from La Villa del Re. When we left, we were flying out of Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport (OLB) and it took us around 30 minutes to get there.

7Pines Check-In


We pulled up to the gate and were directed to the reception building. I do not like the pomp of luxury resort check-ins. I don’t want a tour, I don’t need help with figuring out the light switches, and I don’t want my bags touched. We kept our bags and were seated in reception for the check-in. The hotel has an app that they want you to download (we did not). They parked the car for us. I later learned that there was a choice of valet or self parking. Both are complimentary, so I held the keys after this initial time. We were driven to our suite in a golf cart and another employee was waiting to give us a tour. We opted out of that, collected the keys, and went into the suite ourselves. Some people like to have their things unpacked, to have someone help them with menial tasks, etc. I am not one of those people and really just want some quiet and privacy. During check-in the Globalist breakfast benefit was explained (full buffet), late checkout was offered (I requested and received 3:00 PM), and the Wi-Fi was explained (no password needed). Once we said goodbye to the trio of employees at our suite, we got to explore it on our own.

A 7Pines branded beach bag was found on the bed. It held two pool towels. We could get more anytime we wanted at the pool.

7Pines Suite Flip Flops

There were also two pairs of flip flops in the room. These were also branded 7Pines, but they were way too small for my husband or me to wear. This hotel branded everything from towels to pens to bags to anything else that could have a logo put on it.

There are two pools at 7Pines Resort Sardinia in addition to impeccably manicured grounds, beach, several restaurants, spa, tennis courts, basketball court, fitness center, a kids club known as Kio House of Kids, and more. The Lagoon Pool is adults only (even though this is not well enforced). The main pool has its own swim-up pool bar.

7Pines Grounds


7Pines Flowers

The main pool has a bridge connecting the two sides.

7Pines Pool 3

The swim-up bar is found here as well.

There is a tennis court.

7Pines Paddle Ball Court

Next door, you’ll find a smaller court. I thought it was for pickle ball, but the resort’s site says paddle ball.

7Pines Basketball Court

A basketball court is located behind these courts.

7Pines Cars

Almost everything at the 7Pines Resort Sardinia is branded. These Land Rover Defenders were parked near reception. I’m not sure if transfers can be booked or if they’re used for another purpose. They did not move during the three days of our visit.

7Pines Cone Club

The Cone Club restaurant is near the main pool. It serves Mediterranean for dinner. We did not try it while at the resort.

7Pines Cone Club Garden

When we were being escorted to our room, the staff told us that the chef likes to grow his own herbs. The garden was brimming with herbs and vegetables.

7Pines Spa 1


7Pines Spa 2

The Pure Seven spa is found near the main pool. We did not have the chance to visit on this trip.

7Pines Main Building

The 7Pines main building is where you’ll find the concierge, a small shop, Capogiro restaurant, many of the hotel’s rooms, and the entrance to the beach behind the building.

7Pines Shop

The shop is located on the ground floor near the concierge.

7Pines Seating

There is a small seating area here as well.

7Pines Beach 1

The beach is located behind the main building. It has plenty of open seating. It was windy during our visit and the beach remained empty.

7Pines Beach 2

As you walk down the path, you’ll get some great views of the water and the boats passing by throughout the day.

Overall Impression: 7Pines Sardinia Resort is a nice addition to the Hyatt portfolio. The suites, common areas, amenities, and service are all excellent. I like the aesthetic of the 7Pines brand and hope they open additional locations (there is currently only one other in Ibiza).

It’s Molton Brown, not Moulton Brown toiletries… 😎

What a wonderful write up. Our only trip to Sardinia was when our cruise ship could not make Livorno due to inclement weather. Barcelona was our final destination. I could tell tat Sardinia had a lot to offer. And now I know what Molton Brown is.

Trip looks amazing. How many days did you spend at each hotel besides the four points which was just 1 nite. Looking todo similar trip? Any hotel you would spend more or less time if you did it again?

Frankfurt Airport Lufthansa
Anthony Losanno October 29, 2023 - 10:26 am

Four Points – 1 Night
La Villa del Re – 2 Nights
7Pines Resort – 2 Nights

I would have stayed another day at each of them 🙂
