il soggiorno è stato buono . il personale dell ' albergo era educato e gentile . purtroppo l ' unico grosso neo del soggiorno in sardegna sono state le spiagge che erano piene di alghe e spazzatura varia perchè pochi giorni prima c ' era stata una violenta perturbazione con forti mareggiate !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hotel in posizione ottima come base di partenza per visitare il sud della Sardegna sia ad ovest che ad est di Cagliari. In una settimana siamo riusciti a vedere le spiagge da Capo Teulada a Costa Rei. La suite per famiglie ha due camere.Lo consiglio come base di partenza per visitare il sud,non per vacanze "stanziali".

Posizione ottima per chi vuole visitare tutte le spiagge della costa sud! Il personale è estremamente gentile, disponibile e molto professionale. La pulizia è impeccabile. La colazione ottima e abbondante. Lo consiglierei a chiunque decidesse di trascorrere le vacanze in quei luoghi meravigliosi, con spiagge indimenticabili.

サルディーニャ最終日の前日に宿泊。翌日早朝便で出発であった為、価格と空港迄のアクセス、無料駐車場の3点からここに宿泊することに決めました。 カリアリ周辺では英語を使わないホテルスタッフも多い中、英語も可。E-Mailでの英語の問い合わせにも迅速に対応してくれました。 フロントは24時間対応。早朝出発でしたが、駐車場ゲートを空けてくれた。 スタッフの対応・ホテルの清潔度には満足。但し、築年数は結構経っており、徒歩圏にスーパー・レストラン有るものの、主な観光地に行くにはレンタカーが必要。

Soggiorno non molto felice, la struttura anche se molto pulita e con personale gentile ed accogliente, avrebbe bisogno di una forte rinfrescata, un 4 stelle rimasto allo stile anni 70 mi sembra un pò troppo. L'ascensore non ha funzionato per gran parte del giorno. La posizione comunque risulta buona e vicino a spiagge stupende. Buona mi è sembrata l'organizzazione e sufficiente anche la piscina, anche se si soffre un pò il caldo perchè molto riparata e chiusa tutta intorno.

Depende del tipo de vacaciones que eliges, seria de instalaciones insuficientes, pero para mi eleccion era perfecto. Cerdeña es tan grande y bonita que tenía claro que no iba de vacaciones al hotel. Viejecillo pero la amabilidad de sus empleados te hace sentir muy bien y su situación para moverte por el sur la encontre perfecta. Solo resaltar que el mapa y ubicación no es muy correcta. De acuerdo con la señalización de Cerdeña sería importante remarcar dirección Villasimius.

Davvero un ottimo Hotel, il personale è gentilissimo, disponibile e attento. La nostra stanza l'abbiamo sempre trovata pulita e in ordine(cosa fondamentale per un buon hotel) e di notte si dormiva con una tranquillità che non si trova ovunque. Al giorno della nostra partenza ci hanno permesso di depositare i bagagli per quasi tutto il pomeriggio e ci hanno fatto usare liberamente tutte le zone comuni dell'albergo compresa la piscina per un ultimo bagno prima di tornare a casa. :-)

I spent 4 night in the hotel with my husband and my 1 year old son. I booked a double-room with a cot. We travelled to the hotel by buses because the taxi fair was quiet expensive. The hotel was much better than I expected. However I booked a double-room, we got a two room suit with two balconies without extra charge. They did not charge for the baby cot either (however the cost should have been 6 euro for a night). It was great!Everything was clean. The cleaner did her job everyday and fix the TV channels and the air conditioner for us while we were on the beach. The breakfast was nice with a huge range. We could enjoy the swimmingpool in the afternoons and there was free tennis facility for the guests. The white sand was for 20 minutes walk. There is a small supermarket for about 5 minutes where we could buy food for the day. The only negative thing was the way to the beach. There was a house where 3 dogs were standing on the top of the fence every day. Nobody was supervising them. We had to be careful because they nearly offended us. We were really scared. There was no zebra-crossing there and the drivers did not stop where we wanted to pass (but obviously it is not the fault of the hotel). I can recommend the hotel. This is a great offer and a family-friend accomodation. The receptionist staff speak English but noone else, either in the hotel or in the shops, beach, etc. So an Italian dictionary can be useful.

08/31/14 veryspain Gijon, Spain
Is cheap and confortable but is not the best hotel. It is not 4 stars, maximum 3. Rooms not so big and small and old tv. Furnitures are old. They have bus service to closest beach. Also big parking very easy to park. Not so close to Cagliary center or to beach, you need car or bus.

"Tired and remote"
08/02/14 Barbara A Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
The price of this hotel made it attractive to me. Upon arrival I understood why it was so cheap! The area is very remote which in fairness it does say on their website. You definitely need a car here or (like us) will spend lot on taxis. It is approx €25 one way to any decent restaurants. There are none in the proximity of the hotel so we ventured out most evenings. We did not hire a car because we like to have a drink with our meal in the evening. We moved rooms after one night because we wanted a bigger room, for an extra €20 a night we upgraded to a room with a kitchenette and. Separate bedroom. This was definitely worth the extra. As mentioned in other reviews the shower is a joke and after every shower the bathroom is completely flooded. We tried to fix this but gave up and coped with mopping up every night! The lack of WiFi in the room was a Nuisance, it is only available in Reception area. The pool is not well maintained, the tiles above the water level are very greasy and dirty, the filter is virtually non existent and on one occasion we had a problem with the chlorine crystals sitting on the floor of the water. We informed reception of this problem in the morning but the hotel staff had still not cleaned them resulting in me having a skin irritation. Once we contacted the manger to advise the problem he arranged for the pool to be cleaned. This is a hotel that would benefit from having entertainment because currently there is absolutely no entertainment in the hotel. The sitting area of the bar overlooks the car park! There is no pool bar or food available for snacks, lunch Etc unless you wish to go into the restaurant for a proper meal. It is such a shame because there is so much potential for this hotel to improve. Some of the staff made our stay enjoyable with their help. Particularly Erica behind the reception. Gianluca behind the bar has a wealth of knowledge and contacts. His cousin took us out on a fantastic boat trip which was the highlight of our holiday and incredibly good value for money. Overall if you wish to stay here as a base for travels it is fine. Other than that It might not suit you!

"4 stars? Four fallen stars from the 1960s!"
04/24/14 esser Bruges, Belgium
Our room on the top floor was clean but was smelling like sewage, or rather rotting cadavers. It was impossible to stay there with closed windows. Our neighbors told us the same story. The wine was served in open bottles without labels at the very basic dinner. It was barely drinkable. Three out of ten bottles of white wine on the tables of our group even were cloudy. We returned them and asked for the wine list but they didn't have any and there was no other wine available. The breakfast consisted only of croissants and pastries filled with jam. No cheese, no ham, nothing else. So the second day we bought wine and cheese in the supermarket. However, on this second evening, a group of about 100 children between 8 and 16 years old was arrived. They had dinner at the same time and in the same room as the other guests. We heard them playing until 0:30 AM and at 5:30 AM, still half dark, the gardener started with his brush cutter. A terrible night! The grounds of the hotel were neglected. The area is in decline and there is nothing to do in the distant environment. Only suitable for large groups in transit with few money.

Beds was two singles put together which kept on coming apart, tennis court was out of order. Hotel is miles from town with an infrequent bus service. Pool is tiny. Have to also take the bus to get to the beach. Unless you have a car definitely don't go. Rest of the hotel is fine. Staff are ok.

11/28/13 martin l Corby, United Kingdom
A friendly hotel. I have no complaints about whatsoever considering the very reasonable rates. Perfectly clean, rooms cleaned thoroughly daily. Breakfast acceptable. Staff great. Bus service stops right outside hotel. My only *advice*.....is book this hotel.....but if your there for more than a couple of days- make sure you book a little car too.

"At least it was cheap"
07/26/13 nina b Fredensborg, Denmark
We stayed for 2 nights. A/C was not working and in a very small room that was jut horrible. We complained about that and the not working safety box, but not until we threatened to leave if it was not fixed, they moved us to another much bigger room. A/c was still not working but facility was much better so we stayed. Breakfast was ok, and pool was clean though small. Hotel facility is old and looks cheap - but so it is, so thereby it was ok. Would not go back though and cannot recommend this hotel to others.

"No AC & bad smell & unfriendly staff"
06/28/13 TellTheTruth2Friends Key West, Florida
The room had a musty/old smell once you opened the door. We opened the windows for air flow right away. This would not be a solution to the problem as there was road noise and you could hear the humming from the pool pump. The air conditioning did not seem to be working? We turned it on and went out for some sight seeing. We arrived back about 11pm the room was hot. We went to the front desk to ask. They said they know it is not working on that side of the building - only during the sunshine hours ??? We were offered to move to a smaller/older room in another section of the hotel where the a/c would be working right away. We have never experienced this in a 3 star OR any other place we have stayed in during our travel experience. They should make the guest aware of this situation upon they check-in. Plus... paper-thin towels, a useless hair-dryer.... this place should never deserve four stars. Do yourself a favor and stay some place else.

"One week stay in September"
10/08/12 Duncan K Farnham, United Kingdom
I stayed here with my partner for a week. On the positive sides - Decent, clean room with a nice view and en-suite - Nice pool area However: - The hotel location is poor; it is a 40 minute bus ride to Cagliari, the buses stop running at 11 and taxis are very pricey, so not very convenient in general and terrible for a night out. There was also no shuttle bus to the beach. You will need a hired car if you are staying here for more than one night. Also the hotel is not in walking distance to a decent beach - The activities the hotel claim to have snorkelling, cycling, etc don't exist Overall, I wouldn't go to the hotel Califfo again

"One Night Stay"
09/19/12 BondTM Stafford, United Kingdom
Myself and my parents stayed here for 1 night before we went onto stay in a villa for the rest of our stay. We chose it as we used to live behind the Bella Vista complex just opposite and my parents remembered it from when we were last here. We checked in about 10.30amish, which was fantastic. The people we spoke with did speak some English, which we did not expect as the last time in the country, not many people did. We stayed in a suit on the top floor, overlooking the pool and you could see the main beach in the back ground. It was fantastic. A large balcony in the double room and a small one in the twin room which was lovely on a warm evening. Breakfast. Give them credit, they had a very very large wedding party in for breakfast which was in a seperate room, as well as serving non wedding guests at the same time. They did a lovely selection of cakes and cereal for breakfast along with some ham, cheese and bread for those of us not used to such sweet cakes for breakfast. It was a good selection, though having the coffee in the main room with the wedding party was a bit awakward but it was ok. It is a little further from the city centre but that didn't bother us as you get to drive along side Poetto each time. And having the Bella Vista complex and a supermarket just opposite, which had a very good selection, was brilliant. We ate at the restaurant on the complex of Bella Vista and it was so cheap! But delicious food! Have already booked again for next year as a one night stop over.
