We travelled with our 5 year old son for one week at the end of July. This place was absolutely fantastic on every level. We stayed in Le Palme in one room with a sofa bed, space was a bit tight and the shower does require you to rotate on the spot (god help you if you drop the shower gel!) but hey, who stays in their room much on holiday? It was spotlessly clean. Our pool was opposite and the restaurant for breakfast. Breakfast was ok, not the best I've had but perfectly ok. We had pizza lunch here every day which was excellent.

So to the reason we came...kids facilities. These were second to none. The staff in the kids club were absolutely fantastic, the best I've ever known. Enthusiastic, kind and in control. My son did sports, visits to the beach and even horse riding with them! He really loved it. Every evening they do "baby dance" and a show in the amphitheatre and if that's not enough they have live music in the square and the playground opens up at 9.30pm with bouncy castles, climbing wall and go kart racing. And circus training and acts some nights. Just amazing. And the staff recognised our son everywhere which I found extraordinary.

All the restaurants were very good indeed expect one iffy experience at Pomodoro. We particularly liked the restaurant by the beach and Il Leccio. The wine is free at most which is good and they don't hesitate to bring more!

It was very hot when we were there at 36c so we didn't do the sports other than getting our son on the windsurf board but there's plenty to do if you wish. The beach is beautifully clean and fairly quiet too.

Sardinia is mountainous so expect a windy drive of 1.5 hrs from either airport, we hired a car and visited Castelsardo, Stintino and Costa Smerelda, there are many stunning beaches to visit so get out and see them!

I cannot recommend this resort enough, it is perfect for young kids and with probably 90% of the guests being Italian with some French and very few Brits you do actually feel you're in Italy. Imagine being in restaurants brimming with young families and no errant kids running around and no drunk dads at 10pm at night and you get the idea why it's so fab! We never had a problem conversing in English with anyone and we found the staff overwhelmingly polite, the card system is actually a good way to never have to worry about bringing cash with you. Even arriving at 2am the staff got us checked in and to our room effortlessly with some dinner supplied for us, what a kind gesture! I don't recognise the negative reviews on here at all about the staff and wonder if there was a cultural barrier for some Brit visitors?

We've never returned anywhere before but we really think we will end up back here some time we loved the resort and the island so much! Well done Le Dune, you gave us an amazing week and we can't thank you enough. Please pass on our praise to your kids club staff.

Never felt the need to laeve a review before now. We (family of 3) had an absolutely fantastic time.

Relaxed from the moment we arrived. Resort just so welcoming. Felt like being back to nature with all the dunes and wild flowers.

Mini-club couldn't have been better. My Italian/English daughter was so looked after and Enrico, Davide, Riccardo and all the others were lovely and always smiling.

Pools - excellent
Food - excellent

Room tip: Fantastic mini-club

We had a brilliant family holiday with two children, aged 3 & 7.
We didn’t eat at the same restaurant on the resort more than once during the week we were there - there are so many options and delicious food. There are only 2 a la carte restaurants & constantly having buffets meant our conversations were often interrupted (& could also lead to overeating!)
There were also 3 bars offering lunch time food but the menu was the same at each & this meant eating the same thing almost daily for lunch.
Lots on offer for children and adults - there were several pools to choose from as well as the beach & really no need to leave the resort! There is a kids club during the day and also evening, offering meals and group babysitting which was all included in the overall price (as well as private but for a cost). The staff at the kids club were great with the children and also mindful of parents concerns.
The spa treatments were excellent & reasonably priced.
Rooms are basic, lots of concrete around the resort but we had a great holiday and I would highly recommend Le Dune!

Facilities: Beautiful, spacious, clean, great in all aspects
Apartment: Family room for 4 persons, well layout.
Bedroom: Spacious
Bad-room: Big, clean, however shower with poor water pressure
Internet: No internet in the room and quite poor outside, needs to be improved
Pools: Many options, clean. will be good to have a pool with a playground for kids, there is one but does not have slides, etc...
Restaurant & Food: Spot on, amazing variety and great and delicious food
Entertainment: Just fantastic, starting with the kid club, kids disco, show for all, and live music. Best entertainment I’ve ever seen, in addition, there is a great and safe playground for kids up to 12 I will say; really good.
Beach: Not bad comparing with other beaches in the island such as Cala Rena Bianca or El Príncipe ;-) fully recommended by the way.
Ice cream: Best in all Italy ;-)
Last but not least: The Staff: Could not be better, smiling all the time, great attention, make you feel great, fantastic, the best of the best ;-)

The only comment I would say is that the facilities are lacking of a mini Market, in addition the taxis offered from Olbia Airport to the Hotel is quite expensive so if come back again I will definitely rent a car.

We stayed a week in a family suit with a view of the mountains. Large rooms quiet although you can hear the outside entertainment Saturday night till past 2am. Excellent staff who always did their best to help in any way. Several pools to try all good although most very deep. Lifeguards on duty. Several restaurants the free ones come with free wine and water. We didn't try any of the pay ones. Entertainment was good. Beach is nice with free sunbeds after the first three rows. We went horse riding on the beach which was excellent I had not ridden before, privately family run. We stayed in room 277 but I noticed 278 for example the view was restricted by trees right in front of the balcony several rooms had the same.

Room tip: Ask for quiet high floor with an unrestricted view.
