This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. We enjoyed our first visit but this time it was even better. Last year we stayed in a superior sea view room in the clean, stylish main hotel. We had a great view and no problems but this year opted for a Nidi Suite to allow for more space for ourlittle boy. This entirely lived up to our expectations.
The accommodation was airy, spacious with a hugh patio area. The only criticism i have is that the bathroom could have done with an upgrade. We had a beautiful view of the sea, gardens and mountains and it was peaceful and relaxing. There was a slight smell at times but this is not from sewage as some people believe but the nearby river and it didnt stop us enjoying a drink in the evening after dinner.
The food was excellent and varied and the staff in the Wild Duck Restaurant attentive and friendly- especially to our son. They were happy to provide him with a more child friendly meal option to those on the main menu. Even the much maligned Sandro was friendly and helpful but especial thanks go to Simone who was very kind and friendly. In fact, every staff member, from the entertainment staff to the receptionist s were most helpful and pleasant.
Although we stayed at the end of the high season, the entertainment wasn't obtrusive and the Sardinian night was particularly pleasant . The pool area and beach are excellent-very clean and child friendly. Yes, the front tier of beach recliners are charged for but the free deck chairs just behind are equally good.
As for comments about seaweed, that does appear after a stormy night at sea. I don't think the hotel can be held accountable for a natural phenomenon and the sea water is otherwise crystal clear.And although remote, a bus stops outside the hotel gates, allowing guests to reach nearby Pula and from there the beach and sights of Nola.
All in all, a well run, family friendly hotel that i highly recommend.
