This is a hotel for Italians and in June, but I think not only in June as nearly all staff can speak Russian - for Russians - a nice semi-detached apartments in typical sardegnian style seated in a wonderful garden. There were also some bikers - but not many. The rooms are spacious and clean. If quiet - it depends on the location of the room. The beach is OK - in a bay with rough sand, clean water - which is pleasing. I do not understand why the umbrellas are so cramped if the beach is so large. There is a lot of space where they could be placed and than the beach would reach much higher level. Yes, if you do not come to the beach earlier in the morning - which is about 7.40 - later there might be a problem to find an umbrella. As the first two rows are paid - we did not sea anybody to check it.
We missed a beach stuff to help us with opening the umb.-s - there was one boy only twice in 7 days.
The food is tasteful and anybody can find what they like - meat, sea-food, fish, vegetables, fruits and "dolce" - desserts and ice-cream. It is typical Sardegnian food - so If in Rome, do as Romans do - and we like it. There was no problem with quantity as I read in some reviews.
Yes it is a hotel for families - entertainment for children is well organized, we did not feel like in a children-camp. There is one part of the resort devoted to children, so if you are not a family, you are not bothered above the limit, even if there are many of them. The shows for kids are in Italian, Russian and German - if necessary.
The staff at the reception and in the dining hall were all very nice, helpful and willing to help. The hotel management - on the other hand - seem to be very busy, as we wanted to change the room which was in the corner - 104 - very dark and absolutely without privacy - it took 2 days.... as they did not know if there was any room for us - where is planning? - and we wanted to rent a car - the conditions for this were from last year in one case and 3 yrs. old in other case... The girls from the reception were ready to call to the rent-a-car, but we preferred to arrange it ourselves. No commnet.As I have said - staff yes, but the management?
In the evenings there is live music - slow Italian romantic songs. If you expect night club and disco - this is not the right place. At midnignt everything stops and its time to go to bed. A quiet holiday in a nice place with good food.

- Hotel Club Saraceno combines the appeal of a traditional hotel with that of a modern seaside resort and holiday club. The Saraceno sits directly on the beach of Arbatax, in the town of Tortolì, on Sardinia's east coast. This is where the warm sea of the Mediterranean and the wild nature of the Gennargentu mountain range meet, forming some of the island's most spectacular scenery. ... more less
