We stayed at the hotel the second half of August 2013. The venue is nice but old. The view is stunning. Location wise, I found it perfect.
The breakfast was bland at best, with arguably the worst fresh juice i've tried in a while.
I know one doesn't go Baia Sardinia to check emails, but having the possibility to check work related stuff twice a week sounds like a reasonable request to me, particularly considering it's a 4 star hotel we are talking about. It took me 40 minutes to check one mail. Between the login and the system not working and the isp's speed, a 30 second task (checking one email and forwarding it) took me ages. Still, again, people don't come here to check emails, granted.
The thing that really threw me off was the service: appalling to say the least. I've seen better service at that backpacker's hostel in Khao San Road.
The bar on the beach has a big sign that says "Open till 6:30". Even with an empty bar, the hotel employees staunchly refused to prepare me a cocktail at 6:05, saying it would require, and, i quote, "too much work".
The experience wasn't bad, but i must say it was arguably the worst 4 star hotel i've ever been to.
