“worst holiday ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2008

This hotel had no time for the English and were often rude. The Italian guests also had no time for the English and there ability to push, shove and be first for everything made the holiday stressful and not enjoyable. The hotel often ran out of food that was popular and the entertainment was good if you like Butlins in Italian, turned up as loud as the stereo could go from 9am till 2am if you were lucky enough to experience a beach party (we had two). The childrens club do not speak English hence there were no English children attending and the hotel does not have a Pizzeria, a la carte menu or a beachside Grill, it has three buffet restaurants all serving the same food , the beachside bar just has half the choice.You are 7km from anywhere and to get into town costs 16 euros using the bus from the hotel or 20 euros eachw way for a taxi. This sums up a small part of our holiday and although Sardinia itself was not too bad this hotel is to avoided if you are a family with children , day trip to Corsica was lovely though!!!

We booked this holiday last minute and had never been full board before so were not sure what to expect. The meals were breakfast, lunch and dinner with complimentary red & white wine. The choice of food was very good, roast chicken, roast beef, fish, pork & lamb. There are also pasta dishes and various salad options. The deserts were mouth watering cakes, gateauxs, trifles & ice-creams, plus there was a wide selection of fruits. We couldn't fault it. The service was a buffet/canteen style. It did get busy at times and was best to go at the start of the service.

The accomodation was fine and very clean, the shower could have been a little bigger though. The rooms are cleaned every day. There are a lot of steps to climb in order to reach reception and the restaurants, but this exercise helped to counteract all the food and wine we were enjoying ! There is a small train that goes right around the complex so if you didn't fancy the hike you could jump on the train.

Plenty going on for everyone old & young. There is an "animation team" of young lads & girls getting you to join in & take part. They were all very enthusiastic but you didn't feel forced into anything.
We visited the local town twice on the shuttle bus which broke up the week. But if you didn't want to leave the complex then everything was there for you.

Lovely sandy beach with free sun loungers and umbrellas. Lots of beach sellers offering anything from jeans to a full body massage!

We enjoyed the Marmorata but would like to see the other side of Sardinia if we visit again.
