We thought it would be nice for a couple of nights to be away from the rush and noise of Cagliari, and be able to take a swim before breakfast. On the basis of TA and the Rough Guide we booked in here. The hotel is on a pretty bay about 20 minutes from downtown, views of the sea and a lighthouse from the balcony of our room. So far so good. The room, and indeed the whole hotel, was never built to a high spec, and is now very run down. Our bath was peeling its coating, the furniture is scuffed and very basic in any case. Much of the woodwork inside and out needs repainting as does much of the concrete, Dinner was served on a terrace overlooking the sea, and was full on Friday night by families from Cagliari. The food was dull, but the Cagliaresi could leave afterwards. We couldn't. A deafening disco started - dum, dum, dum - in the adjacent garden and continued until three in the morning (perhaps later, but by this time I was so exhausted, I fell asleep). Breakfast was minimal and more or less inedible - and uneaten. Not many people were staying, and it's not hard to understand why. We learned that there would be another disco that night, so we had absolutely no hesitation in cancelling our second night and leaving for a place in the centre of town that was sure to be quieter than here. And the swimming had little to recommend it either.
