If I could make any recommendations to the hotel it would just be that they could provide a bit more local information, especially in English, as we stumbled across things like the supermarket and bus stop half way through our stay, there wasn't any info about trips, or facilities that I could find in English, I think most guests are Italians, who all return year upon year, which is a recommendation in itself.
Booked our holiday to Sardinia as a last minute getaway & it surpassed expectations! Hotel was great, cleanest I've ever stayed in, lovely staff, fantastic location, really would recommend if you're looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy Sun, sand, sea and wine!
Hotel is 30 min journey from olbia airport, we booked a private transfer as the bus timetable is limited. It's ideally located in baia sardinia, minutes from the beach and restaurants as well as the supermarket and you can even walk to the water park, it's only 15minutes away. There is a bus stop near the tourist information point, which is 5minutes up the road, here you can get buses to nearby locations such as Porto cervo for 2euros so it's not essential to have a car.
We stayed at the hotel half board as we were concerned about Sardinia's reputation for being expensive. I think on the whole this offered great value for money, good breakfast choice and a 4 course meal every night. But you don't have to spend a fortune, there's a supermarket just 10 minute walk away, which offers fresh croissants, bread etc, and plenty of pizza/pasta restaurants that offer food for similar price to UK. In local restaurants you will pay more for meat and fish and alcohol isn't cheap, 6 euros for a beer, 10 for a cocktail. The hotel offered a good choice of local, affordable wines, starting at 12 euros a bottle.
The pool was nice, we had it pretty much to ourselves most days, even in the height of the season. The beach is fairly small but really nice and the water is so clear.
It is a great resort to relax for a week, and I can't imagine any of the other hotels could beat punta est, I would highly recommend.
