We stayed at the Cala la Volpe last week. We harbored with our yacht in the sea space in front of the hotel's beach, leaving our crew sleeping on board. The service was lovely and the food quite tasty, even for people used to private chef like us. Unfortunately we needed to rush to the airport and the hotel provided... More

Had lunch at the Cala di Volpe as I'd always wanted to visit, and what a disappointment it was for hotel of such repute. The barbeque on offer was simply too pricey for us. 165 euros (!!!) for what amounted to little more than a Sizzler buffet, so we opted for a lighter option at the outdoor bar. Still, 28... More

We regret that your lunch at our hotel bar was not satisfactory. At Cala di Volpe we pride ourselves on great food and prime quality products, local and fresh raw materials, no matter if these are served at the restaurant or at bar. We are really sorry if this was not perceived accordingly during your meal. The pool area, as... More

It is at a nice location with good service. The rooms are very old and the pipes do not run well. Noise and even smell came out of the bathroom. The views very nice and the food very good, but not as amazing as it used to be. In July and August is the most expensive hotel in Europe and... More

I stayed in this hotel for three nights and I loved it. The hotel's infrastructure is huge but respects the area's architecture, blending well with the landscape. Everything is very well maintained and curated. Staff was professional but not specially friendly. I had several meals at the hotel and even though I have no complains, I preferred the meals I...

We had the opportunity of experiencing the Cala di Volpe for a week end and had an amazing time. Great place and amazing Sardinia! the only negative side is that part of the staff tend to be a bit too pretentious... I suggest to make sure you have a car to drive around as there is not much around the... More

It is has an incredible structure and location. It might get a 10 out of 10 for that. But staff is class oriented. They aim to make a selection of their clients based on random criteria (needs, your origins, looks). Ice cream was sold with an extremely over-priced cost to people using the bar (people coming from the near beach.... More

Dear sixsi80, We are glad you liked our hotel and its location. However, we regret to learn that you had the impression that our team would treat clients differently based on some random class/status criteria, especially knowing that this idea was given by the “cornetto incident”. Please notice that our bar at the private beach does not serve any packaged... More

My wife and I spent a week at this very exclusive resort. The property is amazing and it has its own beach accessible by water taxi. The rooms were charming and the restaurant was fantastic.

I came here some years ago with my husband. The beautifully laid out reception seating area was the first thing I saw with the views of the sea. The decor is typically Sardinian with white walls and very colourful tiles in the room. All the rooms are different. Loved the private beach...the Sardinian sea is like no other. It is... More
