The hotel itself is slightly strange. It's a four star so you do expect a certain standard, and the location and exterior of the building suggest a little more than what is delivered. It's a little shabby in places and could probably do with some renovation. Not without it's charm but our room was very small an the bed was hard as nails. I've very glad we got a deal on the nights we stayed because I would have been put out to pay full whack for it. The staff are accommodating, but, dare a say slightly snooty. It's a posh place and we felt like we were in the cheap seats. An interesting experience all the same.
Cala Lunga has a breathtaking location. The staff of the hotel are pleasant, but the guy running the bar 'il Mirto' is a legend. He really made us feel welcome, and all the other customers, in their native language too! The pool is lovely and the 'beaches' are great for snorkeling. Food wise, we had some lovely bites in the bar from the hotel menu, and ventured out one night to a nearby campsite with an surprisingly excellent restaurant on the grounds. Porto Massimo is quite an interesting place for people watching and yacht spotting!
