Just back from a week on half board staying in room 405 with fluctuating views of the place.
Picked up in a fantastic S Class Mercedes for the hour long transfer in luxury.
No welcome drink, though registration was very efficient and weirdly no c/c imprint taken!
Spacious light and airy room with a large balcony overlooking the bay was great with a super shower but no bath.
We had a kettle (though other smaller rooms don't) but milk often not renewed and they charge 2 euros for water and no fruit, tv had just 2 English speaking channels, this isn't our experience of 5 star hotel features.

Grounds are great, superb views close to the sea, with private nooks and shade everywhere, loads of sunbathing beds, a small private beachy cove, a huge picturesque and under used swimming pool over the small road.

The 9 hole pitch n putt is prohibitively over priced at 40 Euros, not too well tended, with a useless putting green and 20 yd netted driving range, didn't see anyone playing and I don't blame them.
It is a remote location with nowhere to walk to and we were quoted 150 Euros for a return taxi to Porto Cervo, though a car is recommended by all sources, and the shuttle to Palau (8 euros return) is well used and worthwhile for a change.

The staff are mostly efficient, friendly, smart, and add value.

The food offering is on the whole very good, and on half board you choose which restaurant to use in the evening. We used all 3.
We ate our first 5 breakfasts on the terrace but eventually were worn down by the wasps and moved inside. The breakfast was perhaps a bit disappointing, no fish, french toast, beans, burgers, hash browns, corned beef hash, the same fayre throughout our stay, and although a buffet, any egg products have to be ordered and delivered by waiter which you then go and add to yourself...delays and irritating.
The terrace in the evening is buffet with a wide choice and quantity no issue.

The Pizza place was vastly over hyped, basic pizza's and not notable in quality
.
The main restaurant is fantastic. Service tremendous, quality and choice of food brilliant, marvellous setting. Wine expensive and 16 euros a pint of beer!!

Looked at the Spa but didn't seem to be good value for money or anything special so gave it a miss, like most, we saw only 4 people in the outdoor pools throughout.

There was live music which we heard but didn't support apart from the breakfast harpist, ok, not intrusive apart from one night in the restaurant...screechy.

Wifi was good, and our final holiday barometer of many years is how much is a Ice Cream Magnum...all self serve ice creams from the freezer cost 4 euro's!!

Room Tip: Sea view worthwhile

Hotel Capo D’Orso is set in a beautiful and very peaceful location. The grounds are immaculate with many different locations to spend restful days. We chose to spend our days on the lovely beach where the sea is just beautiful to swim in. We were looked after all day to the extent every time we left our loungers the beach staff came and swept the sand off our lounger. The food was excellent at all of the restaurants and it was nice having the choice of the different restaurants. The room was a little dated but spotlessly clean and the view spectacular. I would highly recommend a room with a sea view. We hired a car for the day from the hotel and with recommendations from the reception staff we discovered the inland Sardinia which is well worth seeing. But what really makes this hotel outstanding are the amazing staff, from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you are made to feel welcome and part of the family. Nothing is too much trouble and we very much hope to return to this lovely relaxing hotel.

Room Tip: Have a room with a sea view

We have just come back from our best holiday ever. The Hotel Capo D’Orsa is the most beautiful and welcoming hotel I have ever been to. The staff go out of their way for you. The service is fantastic nothing is too much for them, they were always one step ahead. As for the location on the beach so beautiful even the staff on the beach look after you.
The food in the restaurants was amazing a huge variety of food on offer and delicious.
My husband and I will be booking to come back most definitely. First holiday I actually felt sad to leave.
The staff come out to say goodbye and see you off that is most definitely a first for me.
So thank you for making our 10 year anniversary an amazing experience.xxx

The hotel is great, in a spectacular location, but the best bit about it was the staff who were all charming.
It is right on its own bit of coast, you can dip into the mediterranean for some snorkelling from its own beach or from the decks or diving platform. Olive trees everywhere, little paths down to the pool and sea, immaculate gardens.
The food was amazing and there was always live music - harp at breakfast (yes really) and a variety of musicians at dinner - all great. The waiters were wonderful - knowledgable but friendly and fun.
