              Terrific location and views across Porto Conte. Sunbathing areas cleverly designed. Staff friendly and helpful. Spacious lounge and bar areas.

              For a 4 star hotel the facilities were disappointing. Some points :- Sauna not in use. Little choice of bar food during the day. Received a toasted ham and cheese sandwich using a crust of bread. Lunch in the dining room priced at €32 - the same price as for dinner. Very low occupancy during our stay ( less than 20% ) so little atmosphere and consequently went elsewhere for dinner. Extra charge for scrambled eggs at breakfast time. Luke warm water for tea. Little general information available about the area. No recreation room E.G. for table tennis, snooker. Virtually nothing to occupy couples with children. Overall impression was of a hotel gaining maximum mileage from its superb location and well designed building and sunbathing areas but almost complacent about its facilities. In a difficult global tourist market management need to improve their offering and pricing. Otherwise occupancy levels will be low.

              The view of the Hotel

              No big bed available. They offered to single bed side by side.

            • Couple

              The hotel is 20 min drive from Alghero. People who want to have à very quit stay, this hotel is good. Because it is a very big hotel,you have the feeling you're alone in the hotel. It's a hotel with a lot of potential but they do not use it. The prices in Sardinia for the hotels are over rated!!! Paying 250 for a night in 4stars hotels is not the same you get in other countries.

            • Single
              9.6

              The peaceful location. The weather! The sea.

              Sandwiches at the bar at lunch were a bit disappointing.

            • Couple
              7.4

              The view of the bay from the room balcony is stunning. The direct access to the sea via the cliff and to the swimming pool are added values.

              The service could be better, being a 4 stars Hotel. The food is good, but we were especting something more given the mention in the Michelin 2012. Facilities are amazing, but the staff is not always helpful or prepared (maybe it was just the beginning of the peak season)

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Very good views from elevated position. Terraces and restaurant all have views 'to die for'. The restaurant had a very good but different menu each day and the standard of cuisine was impeccable. There were choices for each course but even so the menus would not have suited people who did not care for sea food and fish. We liked it.

              A car is essential because the hotel is in an isolated position and there is not much of interest within walking distance. There is a bus service from the hotel but the times were not regular all day. We have no complaints about the hotel itself.

              the position

              nothing was open, we arrived in June and expected all facilities to be operational. even the restaurant was not properly available
