Fantastically quiet resort in a large pine forest. Very well maintained (pool, rooms, reception and dining and terraces) with professional service. Permanent shuttle bus to 300 meters away 6km long sandy beach with nice hotel beach bar overlooking the sometimes wild sea. Unfortunately, neither before nor at our arrival; the tour operator or the hotel management informed us that the... More

We stayed here for a weeks honeymoon in mid September. The setting is absolutely beautiful and grounds clean, stylish and well looked after. Staff very helpful and friendly, Alvino really looked after is as did the lovely beach shuttle driver.

My first time in Sardinia on a beach with perfect surroundings, great services and a friendly staff attentive to each and every detail.

Waked to Is Arenas from our hotel (Is Benas Country Lodge - 6.5 miles round trip through forest) for a light lunch. The hotel itself is very nice new and well laid out. Extremely friendly & welcoming staff. We walked to the beach through the well laid out grounds with individual rooms & suites. The well maintained & equipped beach... More

This is lovely. Large clean rooms, helpful staff, fab pool, great surroundings, but completely let down by its restaurant which charges 5 star prices for food that is really poor quality, tiny portions and cold. Breakfast wasn't that great either.

The hotel has a huge nice territory. Rooms are good. Cleaning is done twice a day. Great little town Oristano is close by with charming restaurants serving good food. Disappointing factors: 1. golf court of the hotel was closed with no clear warning about it on their website. If not golf, we wouldn't choose this hotel from the start. 2.... More

At first sight and as per the pictures on the web, this hotel looks great. However, once you scratch a bit you discover a world of disappointment. From the reception to the staff, there is lack of professionalism at best or contempt in some instances. The main feature is a "wannabe" attitude stemming from every aspect. Best example is when...

Some example situations that we have experienced there: - We were only allowed to check in the room at 16.00 (3 hours of waiting) while the check-out is at 10.00 - Italian people are treated properly;...

This resort completely exceeded my expectations. It was a little hard to find at first but once I arrived, the place was an ultimate, secluded retreat.
