Suggest looking elsewhere
With the hotel being a 30 minute walk from the nearest amenities, it needs to have a fantastic beach. Unfortunately the beach very much lets this hotel down, being narrow, covered in seaweed and lined with fences/walls of adjacent houses. There is a nicer beach a short walk away but it feels wasteful to spend €35 on sunbeds that your hotel is providing for free around the corner. On the sunbeds, the hotel really needs to improve the beach beds as they are old and uncushioned. With regards to amenities, the town of Pula has a few decent restaurants. However by far the highlight of our holiday was a meal at Fradis Minoris, a fine dining fish restaurant within walking distance of the hotel. We didn't properly try the hotel restaurant - one night we stopped by for dessert which was disspointing. Now on to the positives. The hotel always feels very quiet despite being fully booked or close to it. Whether you want to spend time at the beach or one of the pools, the sunbeds are always less than 50% occupied. The main pool is the centrepiece of the hotel and is very well kept with beautiful gardens surrounding it. The staff here are always very friendly and made some awesome cocktails with freshly blended fruit. Overall, I didn't think this hotel was great value for money and if i was booking in this area of Sardinia again, I would look 30 mins further south where there is a cluster of world class beaches.

This property needs a renovation. Wear and tear is everywhere. The staff was friendly and housekeeping was excellent. They really don’t provide the amenities of a four star hotel. Room service had limited hours. We had to drag our luggage to the car after checkout. No one was a available to assist. We asked for ice in the room and they wanted to charge $15 euros to do so. We were getting nicked and dimed left and right. That’s unpleasant.

4/10 Fair

We stayed at the hotel last week and found the staff helpful and the room was as small but clean. However, only one restaurant in the hotel and choice of vegetarian options was very limited. We found breakfast very basic but the service was as very good. The hotel beech was not clean.

Beautiful setting! Menus & Service Overhaul Needed
Absolutely beauty setting and grounds. The property is nicely designed, it is clean and feels very tranquil. The gardens and pools are really beautiful. I like the eco ethos too. However, this place falls down on service. The staff are “nice” but it feels like you’re an inconvenience to them. Service moves at a GLACIAL pace. In the restaurant for example various people come to the table to drop cutlery, take orders etc and it all becomes very messy! NIGHT 1 was a mess. The order was wrong, which left me 20mins without my main course. When it finally arrived my partner had completed their dinner and all the side had gone cold (despite me specifically asking for the grilled veg to come with my pasta). NIGHT 2, we ordered and were told they had run out of items. So we had to look at the menu again and then reorder. About 30mins after we first sat down the staff told us that they could do our original order and asked if we wanted to change. We did, but it meant placing 3 orders for one main course which was just a lot of effort and didn’t create a relaxing experience. The lunch menu only runs for a set time period which we were not informed of upon check-in. This lead us to walking a 4km round trip to a supermarket to get food as there was only “white bread, cheese & ham toasties available for 10£”. I don’t eat ham or white bread. Overall too few veggie options. Breakfast was ok with nice fruits but again, very meat heavy!

What a gem or a hotel on the beachfront
This hotel was absolutely amazing! We stayed here in May 2022, originally a bit cautious due to the lack of reviews, but decided to go with it anyway and we were so glad we did. Talking to the hotel manager, this place only opened last summer hence the lack of reviews. But the renovation work performed on the hotel is a magnificent piece of work! Room size is standard (not as big as in the pics), but clean, comfy and well decorated with a spacious bathroom. It is a 35min taxi from Cag airport, taxi charges 80E from airport but the hotel can arrange transfer for 75E. Pula is a 25min walk away (or 10min cycle, rented from hotel) and is a beautiful little town with great restaurants and couple of bars. Breakfast was inc and was a great continental spread. The hotel has 1 restaurant with beautiful views overlooking the beach. The food is great quality and the service is excellent, there is a limited menu which is the same for both lunch + dinner. Theres 2 pools, well maintained and look absolutely beautiful with plenty of seating. There’s a beautiful path through a garden between the two pools which is pretty and well maintained with seating. The beach has its own private section and free to use loungers for all guests. The sand is silky smooth with beautiful green waters. Honestly best service ever experienced, from restaurant to bar staff, the reception and housekeeping, all very friendly and accommodating to any needs we had and always with a smile.
