“Lacks finesse”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2011

Too far from anywhere to walk in the heat. 3-4 km to nearest restaurant or shop. Access both ways by unlit unmade track that is impossible to traverse at nigh, so you have to hire a car. Very quiet with lovely views but do you want to be in a hotel on your own?
No jacuzzi as mentioned.
Unadvertised bar and place to have a meal but, what are charges and what do they offer? - this info should be displayed, as should be room service details via phone in room.
Although looking clean and modern- the floor was already dirty with sand and dust which was not mopped the whole week we were there. Although, an insistence of coming into room to pull up bed and change towels everyday, which is unnecessary. Very sparcely furnished with no where to place clothes removed at night nor any shelf or cabinet in bathroom to place tolietries/make up etc.. If we hadnt asked for three extra chairs all this stuff would have had to be placed on dirty floor.
Pool side side chairs are badly stained and smelt of sweat. No info about trips/bike or car rental displayed. Wooden chairs on balcony in the rain mean their seats were splintered.
Very poor breakfast consisting only of sweet bread and biscuits with sweetened juice and stale burnt cold coffee. Continental usually means you are offered meat and cheese and some plain bread, along with decent filtered or espresso m/c coffee. A piece of lovely local fruit would be most welcome.

Its situated on a hill, 4 km away from the nearest shop!!! And the only way you can get there either walk or rent a car!!! but to rent a car you still got to get to the town that is 4 km away and the walk takes over 30 minutes in this red hot weather!!!
The Elevator/lift is NOT in use (there is a note that for some reason its broken!)
You CAN NOT buy there any tickets!
NO Internet access at all!!!
Multilingual staff (only 2 people out of 6 people staff speak english and no other languages than italian!)

Fax machine only for the staff to use
There is NO On-site car rental
NO children's swimming pool! only one joined swimming pool for everyone to be used

We spent a few nights at this hotel located in the upper part of a hill surrounding the turistic harbour of porto ottiolu. the localtion of this brand new hotel is very quite and has a great view. nice and clean swminning pool. Basic room with modern bathroom and balcony (very clean). although the place was really nice and we recommend to stay, breakfast should be improved : poor quality drinks (warmed coffe) and poor food choices. beware:no clear indicaiton to reach the place, just keep driving uphill
