Wonderful place, wonderful people. You stay under beautiful pine trees and in one minute you are in the beach with the sea in front of you. We appreciate the possibility to have several contacts with the others but also to remain in quite places because here is possible also un August. We reccomend also to visit in June or September when you can appreciate the sounds and the silences of Sardinia. Better to have a car to visit different places- in one hour you can reach a lot of wonderful beaches and locations .

We were there for 1 night in early Oct so not massively crowded. We loved the trees giving shade and the walk to the beach area, sea was a bit rough so only stayed on beach whose facilities were not available. Bungalows and horse shoe shaped hotel blocks.Lovely swimming pool and pool bar with nice staff. Room was fine, little balcony and bathroom fine too. Dining room was more like a canteen but then they cater for masses in buffet style meals normally. It was warm enogh to have coffee outside after dinner listening to a singer.

Reception service can be better. The Dining Offers can be really improved, it is very needed. We literally had the same food options during two weeks (except the times we had the privilege to get out of there). I have never witnessed such a case, where there is such an eagerness and such ability to ruin and spoil the food. My husband is a chef, you have no idea what he endured. The staff of the dining room, not all of them, but some need to be either better trained to treat the clients. We did enjoy the animation and it's staff, from smaller to bigger. Although I have weakness for Mike (my beautiful Felicia), Paola (my talented gorgeous girl) and the sweetest Silvia, my 4 year-old son was in love with her and that is more than enough for me. I did not have a lot of direct conversations with the rest, but they were so nice and smily all the time that, it was really nice to have. A special mention to Davide& Yakobo, those two *very funny ones*need to be in the theatre industry, they are very talented, and the resort remains a very limited opportunity for their skills. Ending my comment by the reason why I chose this resort, The Horses, I love horses and would love to pass this passion to my son. In this case, mission accomplished. We came back a week ago and he is still talking about Donja (his pony, he this that it is his). A Big thank you to Roxanna, a very serious young lady with a big heart and the nicest smile. And a big thank you to Daniella, a very nice, helpful, polite and most importantly, smily girl. In a short time, she knew how to manage the three of us. Very skilled and talented with horses. Admin, needs to chill out. Don't wanna end without another special mention to that crêpe, they dare to call pizza. In Napoli, they teach how to make a good pizza dough. And please, let the people know that there is no steam room before letting them in the SPA. If I have to put the blame on someone about the negative things, I would blame the management. I also think that the key is in motivating your own employees, they seem to come there under pressure. Would I go back there? Never again, not even for the horses. But thank you for warning people about what they will find there. P.S About the all-inclusive: not true. You pay basically everything, given the awful food they offer. Nour's family.

If you come to this hotel for the amenities that it offers, you will probably enjoy it. We were part of a group, mainly middle aged or elderly and it had little appeal for that age group. The grounds are lovely, as is the pool area and probably the horses too, but... the place is basic, a tad rustic. Our room was clean but the air-con was very noisy. The en-suite was tatty, the bath had a crack in it, the shower worked but water still came out of the bath taps. We were moved to another room, the air-con worked of a fashion... it moved the warm air round a bit. The dining area had all the ambiance of a works canteen and the buffet food was poor, matched only by the service. Having said that, my problem is with the tour company we traveled with. Why did they choose such an unsuitable venue? I am still awaiting an answer from them...
