This is a charming hotel set in lovely gardens which slope gently down to a small cove with a private beach. Set on a peninsular, down a private road the only surrounding sound is from the sea. There are many sitting areas so guests are never on top of each other and the pool is large enough for loungers to... More

The location is great and really relaxing. Staff was excellent during our stay and very helpful with our little kid. Maybe few details could be improved but overall the price is right for such a high level hotel.

Just back from two week at Cala Caterina and I am very happy with the whole holiday. The Hotel is nice, restaurant very good and staff very attentive, although the bad reviews my room was actually nice and I can understand the décor here is not for every taste but as I love that mix of shabby chic/Sardinian style my...

We met friends here for dinner who were staying at the hotel. I cannot comment on the rooms, but I see what other reviewers are complaining about by judging the public areas. The grounds are without a doubt, spectacular! However, the hotel's public areas look shabby and in need of a little TLC. I was shocked to hear how much... More

Was my first time here and I was a bit scared as I didn't check the reviews before booking as was recommended from a friend of mine. I had a lovely stay and my rooms was nice, the staff was friendly and the restaurant offered a good range of fresh dishes. I understood by speaking with the General Manager (Mateo,... More

Big delusion for this hotel in Sardinia. Lets give them credit for the location, which is absolutely beautiful, and the hotel also does look good. But I'm afraid it stops here. The bathroom is small and not to the standard they claim they have and the price they make you pay for it. The shower is a small cubicle with... More

Absolutely over priced...550 Euro at night for a room that face the garden (not even the sea); bad service; i've had to bring the luggage in the room by myself!!!! for lunch we've had to wait 40 min to order a lunch and the menu wasn't having any tipical sardinian food!!! The view from the beach... More

It may not be the Ritz, but it has a wonderful cozy charm to it. The rooms are nice, the staff is friendly, and Daniel did a great job in setting us up in a nice room with comfortable beds! We didn't get a chance to swim or spend much time in the hotel over the week, but the time... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights at the end of May/ beginning of June. Pros:- Wonderful staff and lovely location. Cons:- Taster menu only; no a la carte. If you are a fussy eater you will have to ask what else they could prepare. We booked a 'superior room': It was rather shabby. see photos.

The hotel is small and attracts families with young children as well as singles and wrinklies like us; but few teenagers. They are mainly Italian, Swiss German or Austrian with a few Francophones. The hotel is well run with a manager, possibly the owner, always moving quietly around: no fuss. The hotel is in a small wooded valley about 120... More
