    Great access to Maddalena

    The staff was exceptionally helpful, specifically Antonella and Federica. Great location and access to La Maddalena.

    A great getaway

    The service was wonderful! The Decour and the place is dated but the room with a hot tub and outdoor space was just what I needed!

    I loved this hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious. And the hotel is located right in the port area. There is a market at night right outside. It was great!

    Not really a 4 star hotel

    Twin bed room is reserved, however, when we arrived at 10pm, there is a double bed. And there is no house keeping so we have to make the bed ourselves. The hotel is old fashion design but the shower corner is newly built. However they built a very shallow basin with curtains not even make glass sliding doors so water is hardly control to flood everywhere. Besides, as a four star hotel, there is no kettle available in the room is quite unbelievable.

    Central location but not 4* standard

    Misleading photos suggesting breakfast is at outdoor roof. Reality was in a room with little light and weak air conditioning, gets warm when a few tables arrive to fill the room. Breakfast selection is limited but staff was helpful and tried get hold of the few 'Engligh Breakfast' tea bags left. The room was spacious, floor needs cleaning. Bed cover and sofer cover were dirty / stained, not of 4* standard. Beddings and towels were clean and fresh looking up to expectation. Good central location, there is a nightly market outside the hotel where the public carpark is. Public parking ends at 8pm when market vendors start arriving. Trading activities go on till around midnight. It could be noisy if you have a room facing the carpark/marina. There is no kettle in the room. Mini bar (and entire room) offers 1 plastic cup.

    Staying in the presidential suite

    We stayed in the presidential suite and were welcomed with a bottle of prosecco and some local cookies. The room was great and the jacuzzi was a very nice touch, even if not as big as from the pictures. Breakfast was an average self service, with both sweet and savoury dishes and a coffee machine. Perhaps one would expect more from a 4* hotel. It is conveniently located by the town harbour and centre, both reachable within 5min walk. The staff was always smiling and super efficient. Definitely a recommendable place to stay.

    Always a great place to stay as it’s close to area where there are shops, market, restaurants, etc. Breakfast was very nice. Stella is lovely and very helpful as was all staff. Only one issue was due to noise from restaurant/bar close by as there was a soccer game and it was very noisy one night.
