We decided to visit CLR in Sardinia after the school holidays in UK. We were in the "Village" part of the large sprawling resort surrounded by lovely gardens of olive trees, hibiscus etc. Resort was a bit isolated from rest of island but we only wanted a quiet place to relax - so we were not too concern.
We were a bit astounded by the large number of children & parents at the resort; Italian children don't go back to school till mid Sept. Meal times were particularly noisy. We managed to locate a pool near our room, but were informed that it was reserved for hotel (5 star guests). The pool was not suitable for children and throughout our staff we saw only 6 bathers max (there were at least 14 deck loungers) at one time. We later managed to obtain "permission" from management to use this particular pool!
The beach was very busy and windy (which caused the sand to blow up in your face) so we use the pool most of the time.
The room was adequate but there were no tea/coffee making facilties - a common feature missing from almost all Italian hotels etc. - so bring a travel kettle if you want a cuppa in the morning.
We were on half board; there was a range of choices at the buffet dinners - with seafood the main fare - which we enjoyed throughly. Staff throughout the resort were quiet friendly.
We were not pleased when we had to pay a local tax, when we checked out. This was never mentioned by the tour guide or the travel company.
The resort is best suitable for parents with children & not for people who want a quiet environment.
