This is an unusual and interesting property, built into sea cliffs and rocks, with gorgeous views and wonderful boating. The pool is huge and a fantastic and fancy barbeque restaurant serves the best meats, fish, salads and Sardinian specialties, like baby wild porc. Follow the road a little bit more and you find the Romazzino Hotel and many of the...

Talk about relaxation and pampering -- great large swimming pool, beach area, boats available for hire, enchanting recreated village style accommodation...nestled discretely south of Porto Cervo and away from the 'hype' of the Costa Smeralda....come here for the resort

Don’t get me wrong; this is a very nice hotel, just not my cup of tea. It’s old school, but well maintained and done in a style that mostly remind me of the clubhouse at a golf club in Florida. But if that is your thing then this is probably heaven. The cool factor though is non-excising. Check-in was odd,...

Dear HKexpat88, Thank you for sharing your experience. We are glad to know you liked our hotel, even if its style was not really up to your taste. Cala di Volpe is world-renowned for the design created in 1962 by Jacques Couëlle: a perfect fusion between landscape and architecture that perfectly represents Costa Smeralda’s iconic style. We are sorry to...

You'd think that if you shell out a lot of money per night you must be in for a treat. Wrong! Not here at least. My wife and I are in our early 30s and we checked into the hotel by someone who seemed to despise his job. The concierge is pretty pathetic and they do not want to assist....

Traveled with friends on a 10 day Amalfi coast vacation. This was the first stop and a great hotel to start our vacation. Beautiful grounds and attentive staff. Our rooms were very nice and spacious. Some rooms in other locations of the hotel were smaller. If you need to be on first floor level you should advise them. Large selection...

We loved our stay at the hotel. The staff at reception were great and went out of their way to allow us a late check out. The food at the main restaurant was amazing and all the staff were great and very pleasant. The beach was perfectly located, a bit of drag to walk there but there is a boat...

We only spent two nights at Cala di Volpe before being transfered to another SPG property. Check-in process was a bit chaotic. A cramped desk, the check-in attendant that handles us starts talking to someone else and then leaves to be replaced by another employee. Over the stay, reception and concierge staff proved consistently out of place for a 5*...

We had dinner at this hotel and was very disappointed in the service. All of the wait staff were disorganized, but the food eventually arrived and was impressive. The dining room was inside and they should have been using the outdoor area for dinner, as it was gorgeous. The grounds are nice, and the clientele is upscale, fun for people...
