The staff were really pleasant and helpful - nothing was too much trouble and they always greeted you with a smile and "buongiorno". There were no tea making facilities in the room, but we asked for a kettle and they provided one straight away, no problem. The room was kept very clean and the sheets and towels changed frequently, even though we hadn't requested it. The grounds of the hotel are beautifully landscaped with masses of flowers, several different pools and beach areas, all with shower off facilities and plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas everywhere - again all very clean. The whole setting is delightful.
I went on one organised trip to the Costa Smeralda and the San Panteleo Market - I thought it poor value for money as there was too little time to really explore the market and too long in Porto Cervo, though I can understand that tourists being delivered by the coachload to a small village needs to be managed. The excursion to the Islands was much better, though I would have liked the opportunity to spend longer in La Maddalena. I think if they could offer a regular minibus service to/from some of the local villages/towns eg. Palau, Porto Cervo, Arzachena, San Panteleo, Olbia it would be a great alternative to packaged tours which rarely suit everyone. Many people prefer to explore a place in their own time, not be rushed on and off a coach with little time to appreciate the area and not everyone is confident enough to hire a car. Just one or two trips out/back per day, maybe different destinations on different days would give the guests an opportunity to explore the beautiful Sardinian countryside beyond the hotel in more leisure or even connect to the local bus service to other destinations.
Rooms were mediocre
Fantastic deep sea waters Great view to the sea - worthwhile booking a room with a view. No need to reserve a parking - plenty of free spaces next to hotel.
Food is a general problem. Limited choice of snacks at hotel beach bar Breakfast was very basic and mediocre.
The private beach of the hotel, location of the hotel as well and the view from our room ..
Most of the staff needs to be more trained in customer service and to be more professional
Beds were great. Property is lovely. Breakfast was very good.
Front desk staff were more like guards versus being friendly and client oriented. Had to ask or explain what help we needed rather than them being helpful from the onset. Other guests told us they felt the same. Eating on the premises was too expensive and people flocked across the street to local restaurant.
