The largest disappointment was that there were no beaches there! The Monte Turry has ocean access, but not close to a beach. On the other side of the resort, they have filled sand in two mini-bays, but this is not at all, what you think about as a Sardinian beach. Tiny and poor. The main pool in this part of the resort was quite small, and there were fare from enough sun beds for all the guests. They also played VERY loud music for the whole day – hence not the right place to relax and enjoy a good book. This part of the resort only had one place for lunch, which only had buffet service – crowded and poor! From the images, we imagined this place to be a bit up scale, but it was fare from it. Noisy, busy, crowded, average rooms and poor food.
We had high expectations for Monte Turry, where we spent a few nights during out honeymoon. This is an OK hotel, but it did not meet our expectations 100%. We loved that the hotel is located in a natural reserve with several different animals that you can visit at any time. Monte Turry is a part of Arbatax Resort, and guests are welcome to use all the Resort Facilities. However, most of the resort is located on the other side of the animal-park (10-15 min walking). The hotel is located in a beautiful, downhill area, with a fantastic view from the upper part. Further down there are several small houses with the hotel rooms, surrounded by narrow paths and trees. The rooms were clean and large, but otherwise average. The breakfast buffet was also OK, served with a fantastic view.
