“confidence trick - reassuringly expensive!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

I only normally comment when something positive to say (see my other reviews, also stayed at hotel catalunya alghero and smeralda beach baia sardinia on same trip)) but this dump requires negative comment. Very dilapidated, not very clean, altogether neglected. We paid 190 euros per night b&b and were sent to room in conference centre at the back. We insisted on sea view room in main hotel. Big mistake. All rooms have sea view but are north facing of necessity, thus no sun on balcony. Room shabby but ants in the bed really sorted us out. We moved next day to the annexe conference centre - very nice room. Except for the nearby open air rave drum and base disco pounding out until 4.00am - owned by the hotel apparently so this is a good indication of their interest in their guests' welfare.
In fairness the staff were excellent, showed us different rooms and tried to be helpful. They were exremely professional but you could tell they knew we were being ripped and were embarrassed. I'm pretty sure the place had been bought out by some sort of investment company for development but then put on the back-burner because of recession. Meanwhile, they try to milk top rates from mugs like us through Booking.com.
The place was full but with some sort of tour groups or clubs. Seemed a bit like a miners' welfare centre (no disrespect) but clearly weren't paying the hotel's published rates.
not possible to refurbish, just bull-doze.

Room Tip: beach fantastic but don't stay here!

While the outside looks a bit like an old Soviet building, rooms are comfortable and clean with good A/C. This is actually very important as the month of August is unbearably hot in Sardinia, especially from 1-6 PM each day. So you'll need a place to take some refuge from heat. Go for B&B deal and check out some of the great local restaurants for great dinner/lunch options.

Room Tip: As for room on the 3rd or 4th floor with an ocean view.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2009

The hotel was sold to us as a 4 star hotel. It is NOT. Maximum you can give 3 stars. The grounds are not taken care. We stayed in the room outside the main complex, and it was pitiful. Doors did not close properly. There was a terrace with broken chairs and the light outside was not working. Not very clean. As simple as you can find in a 2 or 3 star hotel. We only bought breakfast instead of the whole full meal package. For this reason, you could not seat in the nice tables. We were told to sit in a corner with no views. The coffee was instant coffee (never seen this in a country like Italy). The hotel beach is a joke. It was a waste of our money.

Our favourite beach in Europ with limited places to stay hotel isnt bad would stay again with the right deal. Nothing flash but nice staff on the beach has a bit of charm about the place. I don't think it's had a redec in yrs but go on the premise that's its a 3 star hotel we had a lovely holiday there so don't worry
