before you book, An honest and fair review
Posted Jun 1, 2016
When booking this hotel, the pictures really sell you the room, and the location seems perfect. on landing (Olbia) we took a taxi to the hotel at a cost £140.0 this was not what i was expecting, so it would be cheaper if you hired a car.
When we booked in, the view is breath taking, i booked a Superior Double room. we were greeted by a friendly porter, when he showed us to our room, i was totally gobsmacked by the very poor standard of the room, it is a square filled with the cheapest of beds, and some very old furnishing. i felt if i was sold a lie. i immediately went to reception, to express my concern, and that i was not impressed with the standard of the room. as it was a booking that you can cancel, i exercised the right. however it was 9pm in the evening, and finding a new hotel at the time would of been difficult.
the manager suggested we stay one night and discussed the costs in the morning. to which i agreed. we asked if we could be booked in for dinner, to be told it was fully booked...! then at the last minute they found us a seat. at a cost of £45.PP the food was not brilliant, but it was not poor. i was shocked at the price. the next morning was another debacle, where the use of a language barrier was in full play, with the treat of police, i agreed to pay 50% of the cost of the room.
i am not saying you should not stay at the hotel, but i am saying it is not what is in the picture, . the hotel is rated as a 5 star. it truly is only a 2/3 start at best...!
