Our first Neilson beach holiday and definitely to be repeated. Neilson staff and the activities were perfect! We all enjoyed cycling, sailing, SUP boarding, kayaking etc. including our 5 year old son who loved the kids club. This holiday is recommended for those wanting to be active and perhaps that’s why the hotel, the rooms and the food are not really 4 star. The rooms are very basic and I found them dirty in places (dusty bedside lampshades, mould in shower corners). The food is very basic and apart from the pizza, there’s hardly any local cuisine. The hotel caters for English guests who (judging by the selection of food) don’t want to venture out from their overcooked roast, potatoes and boiled broccoli. We will definitely return. Loved the whole experience despite the bad food. We just won’t expect Italian holiday. It will be English holiday but with nice weather and all the free activities.

This was our second consecutive visit to this Neilson site and we weren’t disappointed although we had to travel to London for flights and not Bristol as last year. All travelling between airports and site location was quick and simple. As it wasn’t the final week of the season as it had been previously we missed the battle of the bands and the usual end of season party. A complete change of staff were on site to welcome us except for the wonderful Frosty who was in charge and always on hand to sort any issue and offer helpful advice. The weather was a little colder and stormy than the year before so some events had to be put on hold / cancelled. Disappointingly a few sailing boats (darts )kept on failing and the lack of spares did become an issue. We were part of a large party this year and sadly didn’t think of booking a late check out so our children could easily shower and get dressed for the journey home. Showers could be booked through reception although it was a little bit of a nightmare trying to organise lots of children. I think we would of had to pay for a late check out which wouldn’t of gone down well as the cost of the holiday is already on the high side. There seemed to be more additional trips and events this year which were all at an extra cost. I’m hoping they are not finding their feet and seeing a more commercial enterprise to this site. The food was of good standard but became slightly repetitive. There was a Sardinia night that was an non inclusive night. It was amazing to see the traditional dancing and local foods. A great addition to the holiday. We also ventured out to two local recommended restaurants for two of the non inclusive evenings. If you decide to go you must book as not a lot is open due to the time of year. All very reasonably priced. The accommodation on site is varied in layout depending on your requirements. In our area there were problems with flooding and an issue with toilets smells due to the massive downpours we had. However once reported these were dealt with quickly. Cleaners were seen helping visitors who had experienced some Sardinian rain inside their villas. We used all the facilities between us and found them fun. Sadly the early morning tennis aerobics was not on the schedule this year! We tried to do most things but sadly can’t fit it all in so try to vary your plans as much as you can. We had more photographers on site this year and saw some cracking photos. They were very expensive and they don’t like doing a deal so it’s best take your own camera. Trying to view these professionals photographers pictures is very frustrating, in Croatia multiple iPads are in the hotel reception and you can view then create a file and add the photos to it on a daily basis. We don’t plan on visiting this site again as we believe a 3rd time would be a visit too many. On a sad note my sliders ( flip flops) went missing. Very unusual as we have in the past left things outside, near the pool or on the beach to find them again the next day.

We visited this resort on the last week of the season. Very impressed with the dedication and professionalism of the staff right up to the last minute. This feels like a smaller resort for Neilson and that had a few plus points. Also it was only about 2/3rds full during our stay. Activities were all good, tuition excellent and very well organised. Only gripe here is the bike guides clearly had no interest in running mountain biking and despite Neilson advertising the resort as having the best on and off road cycling of any of their centres the ‘challenging’ off road riding on this holiday was reduced to only one red ride, some days there was no mountain biking at all. Contrast that to Messini where rides left simultaneously for MTB and road each morning. That said a great holiday, accommodation here is basic, bar prices fierce and food just okay. Local staff excellent, transfer good. The centre sits on a lovely bit of coastline surrounded by an abundance of bird life. We saw flamingoes, egrets, owls, marsh harriers, redstarts, falcons, king fishers and more.

Accommodation is fine - basic but comfortable rooms clustered in villas. Only problem is that all the villas are identical and a bit of a rabbit warren - it takes a while to get to know the geography. Our particular room was quiet and private, but we would not have enjoyed being any nearer to the fitness area - many sessions were accompanied by a loud,throbbing disco-beat. The beach is in a stunning location, protected by a spit and with a long curving shoreline which extends to a wooded area leading to a long sandy beach in the next bay, where there is a beachfront café - perfect for a walk and a coffee. Coming back to the Neilson beach, the area for use by guests is somewhat limited, as the bulk of the beach is open for use by the general public. This means that the sunbed area is cramped and the sailing equipment area is also squashed up. For sailors, there is a generous selection of dinghies, cats, kayaks and sup's. The sailing area itself is vast - one of the largest we have experienced with Neilson. Unfortunately, the buoyed sailing channel from the beach is very narrow, and depending on the wind direction, this can cause problems with tacking. Not too bad with monohulls, but can cause difficulties for the cats and windsurfers. The wind direction varied considerably from all points during our two week stay, and an on shore wind brought in the seaweed, which remained piled up along the public sector of the beach. The standard of catering was our biggest disappointment, and this was shared by other guests with whom we spoke. Vast selection of salads was fine, but the presentation of hot food was unappealing. Plates were stone cold and food in the servers was luke warm or only partially cooked, so by the time the meal had reached the dining table, it was cold. This could actually constitute a health hazard. We brought this to the attention of the customer service rep and there was some improvement, but not really enough. Full marks however, for the coffee machines - brilliant. For cyclists, there is a huge range of bikes and escorted routes available. For occasional cyclists, such as ourselves, we found the steep hill out of the resort somewhat daunting. Not for nothing is it referred to as "The hill of pain". In summary, Baia dei Mori did not match up to previous stays at Neilson beachclubs in Greece and Turkey, and we are unlikely to make a return visit. The standard of catering is probably the biggest reason, and also funnily enough, the location. In itself, it's idylic, set amongst the trees adjacent to a stunning beach. But one of the joys is to enjoy an evening drink from a poolside or beach front bar, looking out on a vista, preferably watching the sun go down (such as view of Mt Athos from Lemnos). None of this is possible at B dei M as the shoreline is not visible from the resort, and the sun disappears behind the mountains long before sunset.

Fist Neilson holiday and will definitely go back. Hotel is well located with access to own beach. Good size rooms although bed not the most comfortable and rooms could be cleaner; bathroom was in need of refurbishment. Food included except for 3 evenings where there are a number of good restaurants in the local area and there was a Sardinian culture evening organised by the hotel on one of the nights. Food is buffet style and generally good although got a bit samey towards the end of the week. The Neilson staff were great from childcare teams to the activity teams. I would recommend and will definitely return!
