Great location and accommodation
Posted Aug 5, 2010
Lovely location with beautiful grounds. Family rooms consist of a main room with separate room and ensuite. We went B&B only so the fridge was useful.Family rooms do lack a sea view but the patio areas are very private. Breakfast buffet was excellent but you were made to feel like a second class citizen if you hadn't booked all inclusive, which most people had. Everyone else had a specific table to sit in and we were made to feel quite awkward each morning whilst they found somewhere for us to sit. We had one evening meal. Again it is buffet style, but apart from the salads it was not enjoyable.
The large pool, situated down by the sea is salt water. We did miss having a pool up by the apartments. The beach and facilities are excellent - canoes and pedalos are avaialble to use for a separate weekly charge. Sunbeds are extra again, unless you get up early and find one by the pool rather than on the beach. Beach is fabulous, as are the beaches along the bay - although the hotel beach was much quieter. Try the restaurant on the beach. Exellent! Spend you money here rather than opt for all inclusive at the hotel!! Stintino town is very lovely, upmarket and with some good eateries. Try the pizzeria by the harbour. Most of the guests were Italian with young children and evening and daytime entertainment was provided for them. We went last week in July and did not find the area too busy.
