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!
