- Rob Andrews, Sardinia expert
Almost surrounded by sea, it’s a delightful 10-minute seafront promenade from the centre, yet once within the gates, total seclusion.
Style & character
Old-style elegance is the keynote here, with antique furnishings and an aristocratic ambience.
Service & facilities
Graciously attentive personnel, but without any airs. There’s a spa, a gym, a luscious saltwater indoor pool, an outdoor pool, and massages and other treatments available – oh, and a billiards room.
- Fitness centre
- Room service
- Steam room/hammam
Nice old-fashioned furnishings enhance the sense of being a guest in some old marchese’s manor house by the sea. Bathrooms can be small, though, with antiquated fittings, and there are no tea/coffee-making facilities.
Your passport to a better trip
Food & drink
The restaurant, complete with live piano music in the evenings, is big on seafood, exquisitely prepared and enjoys stunning views, but it’s steeply priced and a bit stuffy. Breakfast is a fantastic spread, with cooked options.
Value for money
Satisfactory for most, though the five-star rating isn’t always reflected in the rooms and restaurant. Rates include breakfast and Wi-Fi usage.
Access for guests with disabilities?
There are adapted rooms and a lift, but steps leading down to the pool and sea may present problems
Very much so, with staff going out of their way to keep the little ones happy, though the atmosphere is somewhat hushed.
