“Good place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Very good place to stay, to swim, neart the Lido, near the sea, the town, the train to Sassari, the bus. I felt independent.

We first stayed at the Picale 9 years ago and were impressed with the studio apartment's decor and its location. We booked it last minute as we got an excellent price on flights with Ryanair (£67 return each!). The rooms are just as nice (although Sardinians don't seem to have heard of kettles, toasters or microwaves). However, one copes with saucepans............

The worst thing about the apartment was the bed, very hard and uncomfortable with pillows like sacks of spuds...........

Be careful when you book because there are plenty of extras i.e. the car park is 45 Euros a week (even though you are a guest there), air conditioning is 6 Euros a day, the safety deposit box is 10 Euros a week.........bear in mind that this is situated in the reception which means you can't access it when the reception is closed so be careful of this (Reception open 8.30am -2.30 and 4.30pm -8.30pm). Checkout is very early (10 am) and if you can get a late checkout it is another 45 Euros. You can use the facilities at the Picale if you can't get a late checkout but the shower is locked and only accessible during reception opening hours........you will also have to pay 2.5 Euros if you want to use you dirty room towels........

Location is very good for the beach, no problems there.

The swimming pool is also good and well maintained/clean - It does have a lot of shade so that may suit some people better than full sun all day.

The buses to the town are a bit random and to get back in evening by taxi means another 9 -10 Euros, There are some restaurants nearby however so we only went up to town twice in the 7 days we were there.

All in all, nice apartment, good location but not a cheap holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool because there are plenty overlooking the road or just other apar...

Great location for the beach just across the road and a supermarket a few minutes walk away. The apartment was spacious and clean with plenty of storage, we had a one bedroom appartment for 4 people, we paid extra for the air conditioning after the first few nights due to both the heat and there was some noise from the restaurant below. The staff on reception were very helpful. The walk into the old town took us a good 20 minutes but the hotel was handy for the tourist bus. We caught the local bus from the airport which cost 1 euro each - this bus stop was about 5 mins away from the apartment. The tourist bus 7 euro's each goes to the old town only. The swimming pool closed at 6pm or earlier some days but there was never a problem with sunbeds. We stayed for 10 days and had the rooms cleaned and sheets and towels changed twice.

Really very clean and nicely located outside of the town and literally across the road from the beach, and if you're really very lazy there's a lovely pool there too and a supermarket nearby 2 mins away. Loved it was so clean and pretty spacious (for 4 adults in a 2-bed apartment). Shower floods randomly but aside from that, zero worries. We rented bikes and cycled to the town About 1km by the coast. I'd go back.
