Hotel Club Saraceno
Ranked #2 of 12 Hotels in Arbatax
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2012

My wife and I came across the Saraceno in the most roundabout way possible and at around 2am! Still the staff memeber even at that ungodly hour was helpful and friendly. the room we were offered was large, very clean, had the world's most comfortable bed and was perfectly quiet. we ended up staying four nights. throughout the staff were helpful and friendly, the grounds were a delight to walk through and the beach + pool well looked after. the price was good, and i would say it is a great place to use a base for exploring the surrounding area or for a full on family holiday. The Saraceno has an excellent breakfast spread, but in the evening there is only a buffet style meal to choose from, no a la carte menu. when we stayed the evening buffet cost 25 Euro per person. so not really the place for that romantic meal... i think it is worth mentioning restaurant La Baia, a few minutes away by car, which has a very down to earth feel and great cooking (especially the seafood). however, this is also not the place for your romantic meal. just a very good, well priced one.To conclude, we loved the Saraceno. it met our needs, the grounds were lovely and the staff friendly.

It was just amazing! Everything was really like in the pictures, I was just starring at all the green, the kid's area, restaurant, beach and the beautiful sea view. I loved it there, there was nothing I would change. Room was cleaned everyday, air conditioning working well, staff was speaking several languages (GER, ENG, RUS, FRA, ITA, ...), there always was an answer for your question. As we were in need to stay in touch with the rest of the world we paid for internet a few times (2eur / hour, 30 / week). The restaurant was big, cooks were nice and always smiling, giving information to whatever you wanted. A lot of salads, fruit, appetizers, cheeses, always fishes, pasta, meat and lovely desserts. We got a bottle of wine and water to every lunch and dinner. The only thing I would change was the time of the dinner, it started a bit too late for me. But we got used to it, we had time to visit the town or drink a cocktail before. :) The breakfast was 8 - 10, lunch 13 - 14:30 and dinner 20 - 21:30. We had the possibility to see, how nice they care for children, there always was a program prepared not only for them, but for us too. Aqua gym, tennis, table tennis, petanque, wolleyball, games, beach joga, etc. And what really surprised me was the care for disabled. They we're just ready for everything! I'm in love with the place! :)

Room Tip: It actually does not have a sense to have a room with sea view for the money, because you're in...

Clean Rooms but very cold, was not able to change the air conditioning system is linked to a main central system. Tiny bathrooms, shower about one step away from the toilet and flooded bathroom floor when used.

Lovely quiet beach just outside of hotel

Lots of families and children around, not a great place for couples looking for a quiet time. Great for families lots of activities to keep the kids busy.

Evenings could get a little loud from the hotel entertainment but only til set time.

Slightly disorganised reception. Wifi only works in reception area. Did not like the extra charges for everything…extra charge for internet, extra charge for use of sun loungers, etc.

Restaurant overpriced. Snack bar under stocked, most of food we wanted to try was always never available. Though this seemed to be a common problem in Sardinia…always expect half of the items on the menu to be not available.

One needs a car to get there.

Arbatax nice little town, found an excellent patisserie there and had our first good meal in Sardinia at Da Lenin Restaurant.

Would go back to Arbatax but not to the hotel

I visited Saraceno in June 2012 with my wife, her daughter and family with husband and two small children. We stayed for a week with full pension.

It was excellent. Great location right on the beach. Room with sea view - a little far away - but sea view. Breakfast overloking the bay. Lovely pool (25m) + childrens pool with play ground. Tennis courts.

Everything is nice and clean.

Food is great!!

Entertainment at night for children and then music. I would rather be without the music, and it is difficult to find a "quiet spot" at night except for the terrasse in the room.

You can walk to another bay in 10 minuttes with a hotels and a bar. Otherwise very quiet area.

Greatly recommended for families.

Visited Hotel Club Saraceno while driving around Sardinia, stayed 2 nights. Large room, nice balcony, dirty bathroom and cheap beds. Resort was OK, but it is a family hotel, so expect children everywhere. While we were there, Ill guess we were the only one at the place not being German. Buffe restaurant was a bit of a mess and chaotic, like eating in a school cantine - very loud, no place for romantic dinners.
If German family - go and enjoy, else find a romantic hotel.
