Let me preface this review by saying that our lack of Italian probably did not serve us well. While making reservations, I discovered the hotel books standard rooms and will provide upgrades on the spot. Because we wanted to be sure to get a suite with a sea-view, I asked for confirmation of such a room. I was even willing to pay for it but was told that wasn't done. Despite getting the confirmation, upon check-in we were provided a truly worthless room. They referred to it as a standard triple. The only room perhaps more worthless was the adjoining room. The bathroom window of the adjoining room opened up to the bar patio. After reminding them of what we had reserved, they then gave us a suite. No apologies for the mix-up. In fact, we got the distinct impression they didn't care what we thought. If we had been given the suite initially (perhaps with a smile), our whole impression of the hotel would have been different. The suite was however, very nice. Fairly new, roomy, and a great bathroom.
The grounds are very green. Overrun green. They need to mow the lawn, pull out some weeds, and trim the bushes. It would look truly nice.
Although the hotel claims it allows guests to use both the hotel pool and the beach pool, the beach pool belongs to a different beach club. And while one can use the pool, one has to pay extra to use the pool/beach chairs (you find this out when you get there). That being said, hotel guests do get a good price for the use of the facilities. The restaurant at the club is excellent. We went their twice for dinner.
The hotel has a lot of entertainment at the pool that goes on deep into the night. We aren't big fans but obviously a lot of people like that.
The beaches at Stintino are nice but small. If we could do it again, we would stay in Alghero and visit Stintino rather than stay in Stintino and visit Alghero.
