PROS: Only 35-40 minutes drive from Cagliari Airport. The main building of hotel is full of character and the 2-storey room blocks blend in nicely. It is an extremely quiet and peaceful place, ideal for a relaxing break. It has extensive, well-maintained sub-tropical gardens which stretch down to the infinity pool by the beach. The rooms are adequate but not luxurious, and the beds comfortable - however, our bathroom was on the small side with a tiny shower cubicle with nowhere to put shower gel etc.
CONS: Lots of little niggles. The service was a bit erratic, especially at breakfast (considering this meal is self-service apart from tea and coffee!) They need more staff on Reception. Food was unexceptional and the set dinner was expensive if not part of a half-board deal. The phone socket in our room was hanging off the wall and the connection intermittent. This was pointed out to the maid but nothing was done. We only had one chair in our 'sitting area.' The minibar had disposable plastic beakers for drinks, no proper glasses. Pool towels cost €4 euros a week to hire. Wifi is payable, as has been mentioned many times (why don't they take the hint!) The shuttle bus to Pula and Chia beach is €4 per person each way. Private taxis into Pula (10 mins) were prohibitively expensive @ €15-20 EACH WAY. (Hire a car to get the best out of your stay.) Last but not least, the beach. Oh dear. Beyond the lovely infinity pool is a dirty, scrubby beach covered in seaweed and at times a none-too-pleasant smell wafts in on the on-shore breeze. Such a shame. And please, please, can they install a toilet here? It is a long walk to all rooms from here and it seems unbelievable that no sanitary provision has been made for this area.
