Based on reviews we selected Hotel Sport Village as a good place to base ourselves for exploring the south of Sardinia. On balance, it's probably just about OK for one night stopover when it doesn't matter too much, but could not recommend for a longer stay. We paid in advance for 14 nights but left after 5 as the accommodation was spoiling our holiday & first experience of Sardinia. I'm surprised at the higher ratings it has received.
First appearances are not favourable; poorly maintained grounds and a tired looking building. The dining room just off the entrance hall appeared to be closed down for the season. The rooms are small; a double bed with a tiny shelf on each side only just big enough for a paperback book, a wardrobe with one shelf, a table top and one chair. Space is extremely tight for 2 people and there is a distinct lack of places to put your things.
Breakfast is advertised as available until 10:00 but there was nothing left after 9:00 and a surly assistant begrudgingly answered requests to top up the bread or make a coffee as if an inconvenience. We ended up buying our own food from the supermarket. We asked about use of the safe which is advertised as a facility, but access is only available when the Manager is on site - clearly not convenient. A loud wedding party on Saturday night followed by Karaoke on Sunday evening was the final straw. The late noise of both events was overbearing followed by scraping & dragging of furniture during the clean up process. We moved out as soon as we could, swallowed the loss of the advance payment & found an alternative place to stay.
Strong wi-fi signal gave us web access to search for alternative accommodation
