We stayed in Citta for a couple of weeks in July 2011, me, my husband and our three children (3, 6 and 10 yars old). The impressions of vocations have no dark spots. Everything was exellent.
We were settled in two connected rooms on the ground floor at the far end of the territory, near the flowers swimming pool. The rooms are OK, just a little timed. The big closed balcony (our smaller activator could not go out) was a plus, also the ground floor saved us from taking up and down the pram (we took for spare and were glad that we did.)
Vast and suitable for evening walking. Several swimming pools allow you the choice, they all differ. Flowers pool, the olympic pool and the pool near tennis courts are not salty, the pools with slides are salty.
We preferred the grill restaurant and liked the food very much. Fresh ricotta, vegetables and fresh beafsteak cooked on your eyes - what can be more healthy. The drinks were also suitable. Children liked the iceream and desserts.
Beach and slides
We liked the presence of different types of beaches - both super! Pontones with slides - I have never ever met such an ineteresting beach configuration :) One small disadvantage - the water in slides pools is quite cold, it is refreshing in hot times, but a little bit unpleasant at the evening. The sandy beach can be reached by a boat, starting form the pontone beach, and by the small shuttle bus that is no porblem. The beach is beautiful. Much better than maby other beaches we found out during our trips over the island.
Our kids loved trampoline organaized every evening in kids zone, as well as mini disco. But we did not see any kids activities during the day, boring anomators were just sitting in mini-club with boring children. Only one of 5 girls was more of less active trying to entertain the children. General animation near the main pool is OK. Aquagim, water polo and etc.
The main disadvantage of the hotel is its distance from civilisation. Rent a car in the hotel is too expensive. We booked the car for our second week in the internet yet at home and took it at the airport and than gave it back at the airport last day before our flight. The trip from hotel to airport (to take a car) was (if I have not forgotten) something about 30 euro. Taxi can be ordered at reception.
We liked the hotel. It is really good. We had to spend a week to use all the possible facilities at least once. So is it not boring to be there. Plenty of space and places to go. The second week is OK for discovering the island.
