Stayed here for ten days on half-board. Plenty of fresh produce at breakfast and dinner, but cooked food generally bland; also over-cooked pasta (in Italy!) one night and seriously over-cooked fish twice. Markups on even modest wines 500+% by comparison with Pula supermarket. Ground-floor room spacious; mattress past its best. Bathroom: sink, toilet, bidet and mini shower stall. Plumbing noise and footsteps from surrounding rooms. Minimal hotel information in room. Inquiry to front desk about absence of an allegedly available TV channel - we speak good Italian, a decided asset - led to 24 hours of assurances that the channel would be restored, culminating in an admission that the hotel satellite dish could not in fact receive it. No one on front desk at all when we returned to the hotel one night at midnight. Room well cleaned, although at times varying from during breakfast to late afternoon; maid left it unlocked one day. Bed linen changed twice, bath and beach towels daily. Three-section pool, feeble jacuzzi; no spa. Hotel fronts on narrowest part of the very clean beach; sunbeds on its patch are crowded together in three rows, not the two shown on the website, and cost 6 euros per day each. Check-out was slow: we had to ask for the bill to be altered because no account had been taken of the substantial deposit paid on booking and then two tries were needed to find a credit-card machine that worked. Oh, and the hotel offered, on booking, a taxi transfer from Cagliari at 70 euros each way, compared with "the 100 euros you will be charged at the airport"; we found, after a two-minute Web search, a transfer at 60 euros each way by a firm that the hotel itself advertises! The gardens are indeed beautifully kept, but overall the hotel shows insufficient concern for its guests and offers poor value for money.
