“Not so impressed”
Reviewed 3 August 2011

The food was so-so when it was included in your stay. I got served fat. Just a piece of pure fat as one of the choices by the restaurant at the beach. Internet or wifi is not in your room you have to come to the reception and ask for a ticket or code to access it. If you want to have a better meal you need to pay 10 euro extra at certain restaurants. There is not a real choice of places to eat good food so you have to, without a a car eat at this village. If it rains there is not much to do at all. No DVD player to watch movies, and very few tv options in your room. So if it rains, the pool is cold, the beach is a wash, there's not tv and internet is not in your room. ( and you'll need to bring your own computer to use it) It rained for 3 days when we were here and one day it was over cast.

Room Tip: Go with the newer part of the hotel by the Le Sabine Reception

I recently stayed here in July and the minute i arrived the hotel the airconditioning broke and took a few hours to fix which was not a great start to the holiday, the rooms were very basic but breakfast was good. Dinner was included but at times felt like they were catering for mass groups and not focusing on quality. While I enjoyed myself here and it is a good location , I probably would not come back.

The beach was too far away and you had to walk miles to get where you wanted to go, most restaurants (4) where always booked out and you werent spoilt for choice.

I have just returned from a weeks holiday at this Resort with a family group. We had a fabulous time and the hotel is really brilliant for families and young kids. The food in the restaurants was amazing standard and the kids ate everything. We travelled with an 18 month old another older child, toddler and young baby and the facilities are second to none. The baby club has free snacks, milk juice pasta and fruit all day and night. Staff very friendly and helpful and good with kids. Overall the hotel is made for families excellent facilites for adults too with tennis, archery sea kayaking and soccer all free. The reosrt is spread over massive area so its a good walk in between pools but lovely. We lost lots of things including mobile phone and denim jacket and everything was handed in to lost property. Very good atmosphere and safe and nice to escape the typical brits abroad scene with italien culture at its best. WOuld go back in an instant. I've seen other comments about this hotel having meals late and im afraid this is just such an ignorant comment as this hotel is italien and when in Rome do as the Romans do they eat later so what is very good is that kids slept like logs after Italien food.

Visiting Sardinia for the second time we had high expectations and were not dissapointed. We stayed in the Sabine which offered excellent sized rooms and lovely aspects across the pool. There was a very standard of food and wine and the staff were charming. Cannot reccommend enough if you are looking for a getaway from the English crowds. Large choice of food with 7 restaurants and plenty of entertainment for children of all ages. We hired a car from Olbia, (roughly a 1hr 30 min trip through the hills) and there are more hairpin bends than I care to remember, but well worth it as there are some stunning local beaches nearby.

Room Tip: The Sabine is the quietest part of the resort

We had our wedding at this beach front resort, and It was magical. The beach is great... white sand , crystalline waters, and the weather was perfect for the eight days we spent there.
We corresponded with Ornella Tatti, the Hotels wedding planner, and were very impressed to find that she had arranged everything down to the last detail, along with the gracious hotel manager, and friendly hotel staff especially the photographer, Luca. We basically arrived, and enjoyed three blissful days before the wedding, taking in the sun, and surf , visiting the town of Badesi close by, and enjoying sumptuous dinners . Every resturaunt has a great and satisfying selection. My favorites were Carrimbanca, with every kind of meat, grilled to perfection, and pomodoro, where the individual brick oven pizzas are huge, and sublime.
The day of the wedding, the hotel manager, our planner, even the florist, came to personally ensure that our day was perfect. It was so wonderful to see how everyone at the hotel, came together, to help us plan our event, and were so kind and accomodating.
There were some great shows, and entertainment nightly, in various areas of the hotel, playing to all tastes, from italian ballads, to rock classics. There is something for everyone here, adults and children of all ages. The accomodations are clean and comfortable, and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. We cant wait to plan our next visit.... If you are looking for the perfect, beach wedding, but are apprehensive about planning a wedding in another country, just give Le Dune Resort and Spa a call....Then sit back and relax.....

We chose Resort Le Dune and Spa for its family friendly reputation, and within this the Sabine Hotel (the most modern, peaceful and attractive of the hotels on offer there). We travelled with a 3 month old child and a four year old child. As is our usual iexperience in Italy, the Hotel and Resort staff are very child friendly and tolerant; the nightly baby dance was enjoyed by our four year old , but was slightly grating by the last night for the parents. The Sabine hotel was very clean and the family room was attractive and spotlessly clean and of a very good size accomodating the four of us comfortably. The pool was very pretty and excellent with a sloping shallow access for smaller children to play in. We ate in all the restaurants except the one for couples only: all were of a generally good standard, although La Spiaggia was probably the poorest and the Pizza restaurant was OK but nothing special.
We generally enjoyed our stay, however with one gripe. Throughout the resort there is very poor access for pushchairs which is very curious given its family friendly image. There was negligible disabled or buggy access with endless stairs and steps pretty much all the restaurants, and in our case our family sized room. This was quite a hassle for us with a child who couldnt walk, and would be awkward for any adult with a difficulty walking. Lastly, please not the resort is a bit hilly, and is set a bit away from the beach, which wasnt made clear to us by the travel agent who recommended it. Not the end of the world, but better to know these things first.
