“English Honeymoon couple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We have just come back from staying at the Shardana for our honeymoon, which I have to say was a lovely experience. Without exception all the staff were very efficient and friendly and showed a real interest in ensuring our stay was as perfect as possible. A special mention has to be made to the gentleman and lady on the reception desk and to our chamber maid who was especially chirpy every morning and kept our room lovely and clean every day.
The rooms although not massive are all well appointed and maintained with nice clean linen, ample storage, ample shower rooms and mini bar at normal prices. The rooms are all well positioned within the hotel grounds with lovely views of the sea and swimming pool. The pool was cleaned everyday and there were plenty of loungers for everyone to sit on around the pool or on the lower terraces.
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis only as we like to be free during the day to explore the numerous beaches nearby and experience local restaurants. We did however eat a few times at the hotel, once in the evening and twice for lunch. We were very impressed with the standards of the meals we sampled. The lunch is a buffet style with a huge selection of cold dishes, a choice of three hot dishes followed by fruit. The evening was antipasto, primo, secondo, dolce. There was choice for primo and secondo. The breakfast buffet was well stocked with cereals, fruit, yoghurts, cheeses, cold meats, bread and pastries
We used trip advisor to view the reviews of this hotel, and chose to ignore all the early reports and we assumed a change of ownership had taken place as all the more recent reports seemed to reflect a better standard was being achieved. In fact this is not the case it is still under the same ownership, but they have undergone some refurbishments to the main hotel building and to all the rooms and have new chefs for the past three years. As a result of these changes they warrant a better average score to what is shown.
The Shadana is perfectly located to explore all the surrounding beaches, the local restaurants in Santa Teressa. Palau is only 25/30 mins away. You do need a car though to ensure you make the most of your stay. Try the restaurants Papa Satan, Da Thomas in Santa Teresa

We were a family group of 17 people, ranging from 5 to 86 years old, spending a full week, not an easy task to handle! All hotel staff were helpful, friendly and very comprehensive. Rooms are small and basic but with such great location you do not spend that much time inhouse. A car is recommended to make the most of the region.

With most things in life you get what you pay for so when booking the 'Shardana' I should have trusted my concerns that such a reasonably priced 4 star hotel (when compared to similar hotels in it's class on Sardinia) would be flawed in some way.
On arrival it had nothing to merit it's 4 stars, the hotel was in dire need of
updating and aside from the receptionist who was helpful the rest of the staff seemed none too happy to be there.
Our room was clean and quite pleasant but had no windows aside from one
in the bathroom, and our 'terrace' to the rear of the room was overlooked by a series of paths to various parts of the complex and barely large enough for two chairs.
I have stayed in some excellent hotels when booking through 'expedia' and this clearly was not one of them, and to their credit after just one phonecall
and a five minute wait I recieved a call back and all was resolved, we left the following morning with no penalties.
Great customer service but the hotel should be dropped from it's pages,the hotel is simply not up to grade, fortunately it did not ruin a great holiday once my girlfriend begun talking to me again when on our way to a new hotel!

In a few words "DO NOT GO HERE" unless you are willing to accept terrible service (all of whom did not have a word of English) and appalling rooms. Dreadful.
