Good quality rooms; people at reception with small exceptions are bad speaker of English so sometimes it could be hard to interact; nice resort in the heart of a pine wood; fantastic long beach; fair food, fair wine prices; nice beach bar; good breakfast very friendly to families; would recommend

The hotel has a huge nice territory. Rooms are good. Cleaning is done twice a day. Great little town Oristano is close by with charming restaurants serving good food. Disappointing factors: 1. golf court of the hotel was closed with no clear warning about it on their website. If not golf, we wouldn't choose this hotel from the start. 2.... More

At first sight and as per the pictures on the web, this hotel looks great. However, once you scratch a bit you discover a world of disappointment. From the reception to the staff, there is lack of professionalism at best or contempt in some instances. The main feature is a "wannabe" attitude stemming from every aspect. Best example is when...

Our recent five-day break at the IS Arenas resort has turned into a serious disappointment. The attitude of the staff is below any level. Some example situations that we have experienced there: - We were only allowed to check in the room at 16.00 (3 hours of waiting) while the check-out is at 10.00 - Italian people are treated properly;...

This resort completely exceeded my expectations. It was a little hard to find at first but once I arrived, the place was an ultimate, secluded retreat. The beach bar was fantastic, the food was amazing and the staff were so friendly and helpful. It was great having a live piano playing during dinner and the buffet breakfast even had lactose-free...

1st. If you book this hotel expecting to play golf, DON'T!! The hotel does not own the course and the course decides to close the course often, when demand is low. The greens look watered but the rest of the course is left to grow. Hotel; negatives/show stopper. 5 star hotel except not! Loosely speaking, the bar menu is the... More

We booked the hotel about 2 month ago with the intention to play Golf at a Golf resort. Arriving there, we were told that "the Golf course is under maintenance and can't be used. Nobody knows how long. The Golf course does not belong to the hotel, hence the hotel can't do anything about it." Excuse me? We booked a... More
