Facts: The hotel is sited in the village of Cannigione so no car is required should you just want to chill and relax by the pool or beach. It's spread over 3 floors so isn't a high rise monstrosity. It's an Italian chain hotel so has a very Italian flavour (staff, food, attitudes etc.) - great if that's what you want (we loved it) but not so if you're after mini England (roast dinner, chips, cheap beer, Sky, Rose & Crown). There's a 2 Euro bus train from outside the hotel to a nice beach 20 minutes away - well worth it. Be aware that there is minimal shade there unless you hire the parasol and loungers. While we were there the clientele were mainly Italian, German and Belgians with very few English.
Good points: The grounds are nice and so is the pool. The food is particularly Mediterranean - olives, aubergines, courgettes, fish (you get the idea) with a small German concession (sausages, cooked meats). The staff were all brilliant (reception, cleaning, entertainment, restaurant, bar, pool) - most speaking, apart from Italian, at least one of English, German or French, so no language problems. The staff excelled in entertaining the kids - if you bring any, they won't want to leave. Evening entertainment at the hotel was family based - groups of guests were dancing, singing (in tune, not karoake), playing cards, watching football on TV - almost like a huge family eveing in. Don't take this the wrong way - it was all very low key and fun without it being over earnest like holiday camps. For those after a bit more action, there were bars and restaurants in the village / marina a couple of minutes walk away. Our room was large and perfectly acceptable - be warned that the air conditioning switches off automatically when you open the balcony door (no matter how little).
Bad points: Breakfast a bit repetative but perfectly edible. Air conditioning's coolest setting was 20 celsius - may not be cold enough for some, ok for us. Sardinia isn't cheap but that's not the hotel's fault.
Would I recommend it - definitely.
