6/10 Good

Fix the air conditioning
The air conditioning was not working well. Room was extremely hot, even at night. The rest of the hotel was fine - beach, parking, buffet breakfast, location.

2/10 Poor

This property feels incredibly old. The rooms have a strange musky smell, and the tiles in our bathroom even started falling down which could have led to injury.

10/10 Exceptional

Loved our stay in North Sardinia
Great place to stay! Room was large, clean, with a comfortable bed and plenty storage space. I loved the built in wardrobes. Decoration not ultra modern but it didn't feel antiquated either. Abundant breakfast that is organised as best as possible in covid times (I actually prefer for people not to be able to serve themselves). For Italy, I expected the pastry selection to be wider and of better quality! But overall good breakfast. The staff were all professionally friendly. I was very impressed with the cleaning team, they went out of their way to find us the perfect pillow! The area is good if you have a car to explore Sardinia, but also has many great restaurants nearby (Foodie and Sole Mare!) for when you want to have a drink with your dinner. The hotel has several smaller swimming pool, access to a nearly private beach, and a tiny beach, it's a great place to relax.

4/10 Fair

2 star. Pro - beautiful private beach. This was the only good aspect of our stay. Cons - terrible service, the staff is incredibly rude and unhelpful. Staff also had no concern for covid safety precautions. Horribly outdated rooms especially for the cost. Non functioning AC. No warm or hot water in the shower. Ancient bed possibly made of rocks. In a word - ripoff. You can find far better in the area, especially somewhere they actually care about their customers and have price appropriate amenities.

8/10 Very good

Paid additional fee to get a beach-front room -- which was well worth it. Lovely beach, and some of the best snorkeling I did during 3 weeks on the island! Lots of fish. - I agree with other reviewer comments that the hotel feels dated. Stains on the carpets, bit of a stale smell. The sitting areas around the lobby were not comfortable or inviting - with the exception of the bar /patio area. No nightlife or evening activities (which was ok for me). The on-site restaurant feels like a bad cruise ship - bad bright lighting, everyone eating at the same time, and felt rushed, not elegant or comfortable. Food was also not fresh local - though most people seemed to like it. I did like the breakfast buffet that was included in the room -- fantastic selection, including a whole table of gluten-free options. - Staff were wonderful and helpful.

A fantastic return to this lovely hotel
We stayed here 5 years ago for our 25th and returned to celebrate our 30th. Hotel is so relaxing, well appointed with stunning views. The local area is also so clean and has some quality restaurants if you choose not eat in the hotel. Totally relaxed

The private beach was fantastic. The concierge service to help arrange tours was very convenient. It was a short (5 to 15 minute) walk to shopomg and restaurants.
