Pleasant stay , staff was nice and the room was rural but with powerful A/C , only thing if you want to keep it traditional it’s ok but at least fix the rattling door and unscrewed window . not so busy and pretty much close to everything. Hot breakfast could be better.

We had a standard room with 35 steps up and down and no view to speak of but ok The room was very sweet almost Mamma Mia like with shutters and paint The bathroom door would not close properly and had to slammed not good in the middle of the night Fridge was very useful for stocking up lunch ,evening snacks and beers etc The staff in the restaurant were very helpful and we loved the bottles of wine at dinner The food was good but oh please couldn't we have the condiments on the table and some flowers...it is meant to be a 4 star ...it was not but a few tweaks here and there it could be so improved The coffee machines nearly every day did not work properly and the fruit juice was just so sweet ..yuck The weather was amazing though for late September/October and we could still sit out in the evening in the reception area with all the Germans and Swiss we were the only English couple there ! The pool looked gorgeous but cold The walk to the beach was brilliant just 7 mins and a lovely beach warm and sunny but the breeze kept you cool ..Lovely x It was meant to be a chilled and relaxing holiday it was driving off everyday, taking the ferry to the island or going to the beach . We found some gorgeous restaurants for lunch x

My wife and I stayed whilst on a motorcycle trip through Sardinia. The hotel is great, but I’m not sure it is a four star establishment. The location is close to Palau, the amenities are very good, the food is good (buffet) and the hotel staff were absolutely lovely. It’s not a luxury place, but if I were visiting the island again I would stay here. The apartment rooms make a nice change from the usual hotel rooms and I enjoyed the rambling route to the dining area and pool. It’s fun, reasonably priced and with lovely staff. Michele was very helpful to us. Thank you!

I was disappointed to find that the hotel did not live up to its promise of a 4 star. It was definitely lacking a certain "je nas ce qoi". The room was quaint but didn't have any amenities or extra pillows and the blanket in the cupboard smelt like dog. The towels were stained and the beds were two singles pushed together ( pet hate!). The breakfast was nothing to be desired and the dinners were less than average. We were also told on arrival that the hotel closed on 28th and so we would be moved to a different hotel for the end of our stay. Although there was a few down sides, there was a lot to be said about the beautiful views and the how friendly and helpful the staff were.

Nice small independent houses climbing over a hill, with plenty of charming passageways and a sure fun for children. Some rooms too close to the oil-powered hot water generator, with occasional exhaust smell. Very quiet in the night, and the Sardinian breeze will make AC optional for some. You need a car not because the beach is really far, but rather because there are many others to explore within 10-30 mins driving. The restaurant service is really a strong point: Alberto, Antonello and all the team made dinner a pleasant rite for us, always offering to help also beyond what was on the menu (very good food for dinner, but bad self-service machines for breakfast coffees and juices). The restaurant hall itself is charming, facing the pool and a beautiful view on the islands. Children activities quieter than typical, less "military style" (e.g. no preset times, no loud songs to mark standard events every day) and more like a group of friends deciding what to do together. The comparatively small size of the hotel probably helps keep everything under control, and nobody shouts or makes too much noise (except my little daughter). We've been there in the first half of August but it felt like early September. Recommended for couples and quiet families.
