Stayed at Hotel le Ginestre in September for our honeymoon. We were on a budget but still wanted to go somewhere a little bit luxurious so opted for Sardinia based on its beautiful beaches!! The hotel was probably one of the most reasonable in the area but was still fantastic in our eyes and was perfect for what we wanted, which was a nice week of relaxaion. We had two children at the time that were staying with family while we went for our honeymoon and this was a very rare opportunity to relax, which we certainly did! During the day the pool was very very quiet, usually with only one or two other people around the pool and a lifeguard. We spent most of our time by the pool. However, we did have car hire which I would certainly recommend as the hotel is fairly isolated. We ventured to some of the beautiful beaches and also to the harbour and into Porto Cervo, and also a few miles up the road to Baija Sardenga. Porto Cervo was definately out of our price range for eating out, with some restaraunts serving pizza etc for around 30 - 40 euros each, and the cheapest bottle of wine for about 150 euros! Was nice to see the gigantic yachts and how the other half live though! The food and drinks in the hotel were also pretty pricey but that was to be expected really while staying in this area of Sardinia. We found Baija Sardenga to be just as lovely but much more reasonable, so ate out here most of the time.
The private beach is a short walk away, and not as nice as the other beaches (a little bit sea weedy and stony) but it is still nice to have a stroll down to see it. The rooms are clean and spacious (I have OCD so have very high standards) and our superior room overlooked the pool and in the distance the sea. We stayed half board and the menu was varied every night and the continental breakfast was fresh every day. My only negative is that I was in the very early stages of pregnancy on our honeymoon and suffering morning (noon and night) sickness and did not fancy eating much of my evening meal at all. I felt as though the waiter didnt like us because I was hardly touching my four course meal and was not drinking the wine they were offering. Other than this, the staff were fantastic!
Would recommend this hotel to couples or families wanting a relaxing break with beautiful surroundings! Not for families with young children wanting a more lively holiday.
