“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2007

Chose this hotel after it being highlighted as one of the best hotels in Sardinia, as part of a week long touring the island. However, the stay was very disappointing. Whilst recognising that we went out of season, the hotel is open all year round, everything was disappointing. Unfriendly staff, terrible food, sparse room and no swimming pool. The location right on the beach is certainly unique, but so much more could have been done with the hotel building, rooms, such potential to be a very special hotel. Unfortunately it was not special. The road to the hotel is an experience (good) with numerous ghostly mining complexes deserted in the 1950's - you need a good car and some nerve however to discover these sights and stunning mountain scenery. With the hotel being so remote, you have no choice but to eat at the hotel restaurant, but the food was really terrible. Everything served luke warm by unfriendly staff. Very poor. Needless to say we won't be returning to the hotel - the beach and location are worth a return though.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2006

This is a beautiful hotel with a beautiful location. Their website (cited below) does not give them justice. Staff was great, and rooms were large and extremely clean. Hotel sits on a sandy beach. Water was a little rough, but definitely warm enough for a plunge in late September. Plenty to explore with the sand dunes and the nearby deserted mining town (1800s). The drawback was their dinner. Food was just okay, but for the price, dinner should have been much better. Unfortunately, the roads going to the hotel were a little narrow and rough so you probably wouldn't want to adventure out for dinner at night. I would definitely go back here even though food was below my expectations. Great for romantic getaway. Beautiful sunsets. This is not to be confused with Le Dune in northern Sardinia. Location is on west coast toward the south.

Website is in Italian but here's the translated version link: [--]
