My gf and I this hotel from 21st to 28th of August, we booked a superior room with half board from an online booking agency for 960€ without the flights to and from Cagliari. When we arrived at the airport a air-conditioned mini-van was waiting for us who took us to the ferry about 1 hour away. Then ferry took us to Carloforte (approx. 30 min). The island is gorgeous, the air-conditioned room was gorgeous, with a sea view which we were not supposed to get at 1st so great surprise! Lovely and helpful staff, mostly young and professional Italian native but English speaking women doing their best to accomodate all the clients (and they were many!). Very good breakfast, scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, coffe, capucinos, bacon, pastries, fruits and juices, cakes, yogurts, jams, teas you name it they have it. Only regret the evening service which took place at restaurants nearby since hotel does not have its own kitchen. We ate from imposed menus which were far from regular menu dishes in terms of quality it seems. Only wish we could have had the opportunity to choose from regular menus, even if it meant paying extra.
But overall a great experience, highly recommended! Alice at the reception even took us to see the gorgeous sunset with her own car as we had handed our scooter in the day before. Sooo kind and helpful!
Go for it you won't regret! The rooms are superb and San Pietro is beautiful... Discover it! :-)
