I have mixed feelings about this hotel. I chose it looking in the web, and must say was up to my expectations. The absolute best is the location: 5 min to Porto Cervo, in fact you look onto the entrace of the port and the bay where the boats sail (it is closer to Porto Cervo Marina, an absolute place to visit), the views are stunning, and the grounds are big and beautiful. Private mini-beach and embarkment included. They even have an heliport ??
This said, better to have a car (free parking), taxis are expensive, walking to the village is quite far away and on a very bad road. The Hotel has a van service for the guests, that I did not try.
And it seems that as they are aware of having the best place, they do not take the effort to polish many other things. If they did, they still have a big potential to grow and become a big resort. Let´s say thay have the hardware, but do not use the software.
Price is ok, given porto Cervo's prices. But everything else you have (food, drinks,..), be prepared to pay at 5 * rate.
Room is ok , though not big. Cleaning is Ok. Food is expensive for me, specially at the pool bar. Breakfast is probably of better quality than its presentation, seems to be under-sold. It does not seem to be a 5 star breakfast.
The pool (well, 3 salted water beautiful pools not for swimming) and the mini-beach have a very good and expensive service. The lifeguards also give very good service, better than what you perceive, in fact.
I could say many other things, but you keep turning around. They have the potential, but do not top off. Anyway. I have to say that I would repeat.
