We visited slightly before the season began the weather was nice but not overly hot. The guests of the hotel were predominantly pleasant German middle aged couples, who were friendly and willing to engage in conversation if an effort was made.
The hotel is in an idyllic location, with beautiful views (particularly in the hotel restaurant ) of the surrounding area looking down over the coastline of Sardinia. The hotel itself looks phenomenal, it's exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Equally the staff couldn't do more to try and help you; they're very well presented wearing very formal attire at all times which really serves to make it feel like a very upmarket hotel. The pool area is very well-kept and is a wonderful place to relax with staff constantly on hand and free towels to put down on the sunbeds.
The not so Good:
Though we knew Sardinia would be on the pricey side eating and particularly drinking at the hotel was not cheap. For example, you should not expect to receive any change back from a 10 euro note for two soft drinks. There are supermarkets nearby should you wish to get food and drinks for the room to overcome this.
There are some restaurants in the local area but you really need to have hired a car to reach them, as the island itself is not walking friendly.
Our largest issue was with the cost of taxis it was astronomically expensive. Ensure you discuss with hotel staff to guarantee you a firm price prior to going anywhere.
