We spent our last 2 days in Sardinia at this hotel. We had some low expectations from previous reviews but took the chance. Unfortunately our expectations were met. The superior room for 196Euro per night was poor. They were "full" so no option to change. It was a corner room at the back looking into other buildings, scruffy tree covered slope and what looked like a generator. No room to swing a cat in the en suite shower room and the toilet had to be negotiated sideways as it was about 6 inches from the shower. Very tired and needs refurbishment. Terrace door lock didn't work but was repaired within a few hours.
Rules are everywhere and must be observed- we were grumbled at for sitting down for breakfast at 7.53am when it starts at 8- we did have to be at the airport and time was tight. Checkout not available till after 8am either.
Prices are also high priority- if you want a clean pool/beach towel they charge 3 euro!
As a (handsomely) paying guest I would expect to have use of the hotel's private beach - but no, 15 to 25euro per person per day for use of a lounger and no option to just put a towel on the sand- we were asked to move to the public beach.
Location is good for the beach, but not much else. 15minute walk into town is pleasant and well lit at night.
This is at best a 3 star hotel and not the 4 they claim.
The only real saving grace is the bar area which is really comfortable and staff are friendly- this is the only reason I rated this place poor rather than terrible.
