“Great little resort, just a few glitches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Great, family oriented place with simple, but nice, Sardinian-style bungalowsoverlooking the water. The main building and pool area are beautiful.. The only shortcomings were the spotty internet availability (main building only), and need to get a login and code from the front desk every time you want to log on. The front desk coverage could be a bit thin. Also, the evening meal was a bit expensive if bought on a daily basis, in partly because it was formal, sit-down service. Buffet might work better, since the place loaded with kids.

Room Tip: Worth the price to get "sea view" even if not panaramic.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We stayed here for a week recently and found it to be a quiet, modern and well equipped hotel. The bedrooms was large, clean and well maintained with a good quality bathroom. The main rooms in the hotel were very clean and attractive and the staff all efficient and helpful. Breakfast was typically Italian but included a good range of fresh buffet style food.

The pool was in a lovely setting with plenty of sunbeds and shades and the whole garden area was immaculate.

The location was some distance (3 km?) from the town of San Teodoro so not really walking distance in the heat and the nearest beach about 1km. A car is essential and we felt slightly too far away from everything as there was nothing to walk to and had to drive everywhere. An excellent location if you want peace and quiet and don't mind driving.

We had a long weekend at Costa Caddu and enjoyed every moment of it. It's still a mystery to us why this hotel only has 3*, whereas it is definitely worth 4*.

For this part of Sardegna, Costa Caddu provides good value for money. Breakfast has a very good selection and is of good quality... much better than what would you normally expect in Italy. And more importantly, service at Costa Caddu is impeccable with all the staff constantly having a very friendly, professional, welcoming attitude.

Only negative is that it is a bit remote, so need a car to get there, but that also makes it a plus as it means it doesn't get noisy and you can really enjoy the beautiful nature all around the hotel.

Room Tip: Spend a little bit more and request a room with sea view.

We spent a night at the Costa Caddu and we had a very pleasant experience. The location is very 'Sardinian', a bit isolated, very quiet and absolutely gorgeous. You will need a car, but then again, to make the most of your time on the island you will need one anyway.

The room had a lovely view (sea-view is an extra 10 euros) and absolutely spotless. All room have a nice private patio.

All staff were incredibly friendly and professional, maybe the waitresses at the restaurant could try and smile a bit more. The staff at the reception (Maristella and Mousa) and Signor Pasquale at the bar are top notch.

To be picky, the internet 'procedure' is a bit outdated (you'll need to get a password every day and state how long you want to be connected for) and the hotel management may want to look into making it more straightforward.

The nearest beach is ok, but we preferred to do our sunbathing at the nice swimming pool (diving board!!!) and the local beaches (http://www.santeodoroturismo.it/index.php?module=gestGallery&idCategoria=3). They are among the best we've ever seen. worthy driving around and explore the area.

Be careful if you drive to town or some of the local beaches as the parking attendants are a bit trigger happy when it comes to fines (but then again, if you're a Londoner you'll be used to it) and if you do get a fine you'll have to queue for up to an hour at the local post office (we were told). Again, the staff at the reception and bar will be more than happy to tip you on how to avoid a fine.

San Teodoro is a lovely village, with plenty of shops and a nice feel to it, so well worthy few visit - and check out the night market.

the Costa Caddu is not cheap, but the location, the service and surroundings make it well worthy the price. Recommended.

Room Tip: pay the extra 10 euros for a sea view

We've watched this low-key, high-quality hotel being built from scratch over the years. It has minimal impact on its beautiful seaside surroundings with small, mainly one-bedroom apartments dotted around the complex. The owners - three businessmen from a town a few miles away - have spent an absolute fortune on it and have borne the losses as it slowly earns its reputation as a great, secluded hideaway.All the mini-villas are decorated with traditional and high-end Sardinian fixtures and fittings. At its centre is the building containing the bar and restaurant. A pool lies between the hotel centre and the sea. The food wins rave reviews from locals and visitors. The only downside is that you might have to watch achingly beautiful brides, grooms and guests enjoying themselves almost every weekend of the year as the Sardinians and mainland Italians regard this as one of the best places to get spliced and celebrate afterwards.

We stayed in the hotel only for 3 nights. I know Sardinia very well and the hotel is definitely in Sardinian style. Ground apartments, cute decoration, amazing nature and environment.
The furniture is of high quality, rooms are quite big, modern bathroom, terrace. It's intimate "kind of family" hotel with charming atmosphere and very nice restaurant and entrance hall.

If you want to stay right on the beach it's not hotel for you. There is a nice beach in walking distance but it's minimum 10-15 minutes. The beach near the hotel is not a nice sardinian beach. However, Sardinia is an island where we always go by car as there are so many beautiful beaches we travel around so it was not problem at all.

The only little minus is breakfast. Not big choice for non-muesli eaters, not big choice in general. BTW I had a warm in my muesli but it is not necessarily a fault of the hotel.

I definitely recommend this hotel for people who don't prefer staying in busy places and who like romantic family atmosphere in amazing nature. We usually go to other part of the island but if we happen go to this part we'll definitely chose this hotel again.
