Given the difficult situation we were all in, a lot of our planned holiday for the year was cancelled. However, Sardinia, and more importantly, Cala Di Volpe made this a holiday to Treasure. From the amazing breakfast scenery overlooking the beautiful waters, to the scrumptious lunch bbq, this hotel made it very worthwhile. The staffs were all very pleasant, but we would like to thank in particular, Antonelli, Massimilliano, Paolo and Benjamin for their kindness. It was a real luxury hotel, and the private beach was also wonderful with their famous emerald yet crystal clear sea. The water sports activity was also within the hotel, accommodating for whatever sport we wanted to partake in. From both of us, thank you very much, and we look forward to our next visit!

This was my second time staying at this hotel and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Since last time there have been some renovations and the place looks stunning. The food, the staff and the service were all superb and I highly recommend staying here. The place looks like a postcard and the facilities are great. I have posted some pictures of the new rooms just to show some of the nice touches. We will definitely be back again and looking forward!

An one of a kind luxury resort. We rented a car and drove to the hotel with an ease arrival. From the check in counter to our room was less than 10 minutes. Our suite had a view of the harbor/sea view, spacious with a lovely balcony which most of the rooms have that view. They have a private pool and beach with restaurant that their boat takes you to which was so intimate. The restaurant was exceptional. It is a bit pricey but worth the dinner as a splurge is worth it. You will see yachts however, it is was congested at any time. The design of the hotel showcases Sardinia's beauty with outdoor feel and very inviting.

Dear Travelingwithdaisy We thank you very much for sharing your beautiful comments and positive feedback. Last winter we took a huge step forward in the renovation project started in 2018, with the completion of 58 more renovated rooms, the revamp of the bar terrace and the restyling of the magnificent Penthouse Suite by Harrods Design. We hope its enchanting view dominating the bay from the rooftop terrace left you with long lasting impressions. We are delighted to read you enjoyed at the best the pleasant and relaxing atmosphere of Cala di Volpe facilities and on site amenities, and appreciate you mentioning the culinary art works of our award winning Chef. We trust you will soon return to visit us again to renew your experience and relish in this Paradise on earth. Warm regards Guests Experience Team

I was traveling alone and I picked this hotel because it's not far from airport and has private beach so I don't need a car. I knew it was a highly rated hotel but I was not sure but I didn't want to make mistake to try a lower rated one. But I was glad I chose this hotel that now I understand why it's rated the best. - - The hotel has a long history with famous & rich people came to visit. For stay or for events. - - The hotel has very well maintained to keep its top service. - - Staff was very friendly and they remember the guests - - I met many nice couples that they come every year to stay for more than 10 years. - - The hotel has a beautiful pink design, beautiful garden and a private beach. - - The food in the hotel was amazing. - - When I checked-in, they upgraded me to try the new designed room. I was in room 240. - - The room is simple but I like the simplicity. - - The balcony was very comfortable. - - The sunrise was an amazing scene. - - The whole hotel was so beautiful and I couldn't stop taking pics. - - The private beach was amazing, clear water, quiet and relaxing. - - I tried one time in the pool but it's sea water, I didn't like much. I travelled alone but I met many nice people in the hotel and we became friends. I decided to come back again every September so I can meet then again. Recommendations: - wake-up early around 5:30am to see the sunrise from the balcony. - ask for breakfast at the balcony. I enjoyed it more this way. - go to the private beach. - definitely stay more than a week to enjoy Only complaint I have is the Japanese restaurant is over-priced. I had been to a lot of high-end Japanese restaurants outside of Japan but it really 2-3 times the normal high-end price.
