“fawlty towers a la Italia!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

my girlfriend and i ran into this hotel on a trip in Sardegna. The location of the hotel is splendid, rooms with seaview and 3 private beaches, although the best one was closed. The complex was built in the 80's, and since then, left unchanged. So if you want to relive the times you watched Miami Vice and the A-team, this is the place to be! The interior of the rooms is OK, execpt for the bed, which in our case was a little too much on the soft side.They gave us a reasonalbe deal from 80 euro's, 2 persons halfboard, but we dedided to leave after 2 days because we couldnt take it anymore. The real bummer in this hotel is the quality of the food and the service level of the staff.

Staff seems to be the same as in the 80's, including their clothing. One time we were having dinner with the TV on, the next time with a zooming refrigerator in the background. The lady who served us seemed to be working in routine mode for more than 40 years, and she bestood it to even serve the main plate while my girlfriend was still eating her starter!

The food also came straight out of the recipebooks of the 80's, with as most disappointingly main dish: squids that tasted like boiled condoms. Breakfast was equally terrible: a wide arrangement of chemical cookies and cakes was available, alternated with old bread.

No matter how beautiful the site is and how mesmerizing the view from the room, this hotel should seriously reconsider tearing down the whole place and starting from scratch again, with new staff.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Great help, and super friendly staff, big thanks to Marianna, Susanna, Christina and Paola which made our stay more enjoyable. We have enjoyed the nice big swimming pool during our 4 weeks stay at the Baia delle Ginestre.
The large variation of the dinner buffet have pleased all of our 50 group members, and also those with kids very appreciated the Baby dancing animated by Daniele and Francesca.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2008

The location of the hotel is excellent , and first impressions are very good - the landscaping and proximity to beach are excellent. However, the rooms are in a very poor state , and the breakfast is very disappointing. Like the complex next door, this set of buildings should be raised to the ground, and a modern complex , with comfortable beds and a good restaurant built in its place. The only four star feature are the room and bar prices !!
