This is a great hotel, in a perfect Location. Less than a 5 minute walk to the square of Baia Sardinia (left out of the hotel drive entrance, first left and down the hill).
Great little beach area, and plenty of pools with various little sunbathing areas on various levels, which give you a lot more privacy than most hotel pools.
Hotel gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. The rooms are not 4 star by UK standards, but then we were in Italy. My past experiences of Italy has been similar. The rooms were probably slightly old fashioned, but in a nice sort of way. They were very clean with fresh towels and bedding every day. Yes the beds are a bit hard, but I like them this way.
My only real critism of the hotel was the breakfast - it was rubbish! Fine is you like croissants, fruit and yoghurt - but I am a traditional English person! We found the staff to be friendly and helpful the majority of the time.
The resort is a little on the quiet side. Only really a couple of places where you can just drink - the rest is restaurants, although plenty to keep you going for a week. Brilliant if you like fish as this is probably about 80% of each menu.
A night in Porto Cervo is a must, but make sure you take plenty of money. Fantastic Marina, Shop and Bar area to wander round. Although a round of 4 drinks cost us 85 Euro. The taxi there from the hotel cost 25 Euro and back was 35 Euro as it was after midnight.
