With over 1,000 miles of unspoilt coastline, Sardinia is one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean. Marked by its warm lagoons, white sands and wide secluded bays, Italy’s sleepiest island is a traveller’s paradise. Comparatively untouched by modern tourism, it offers up tranquillity and beaches characterised by pretty coves and crystal-clear waters. Stay close to the sugar-white sand, gorgeous inlets and glacier-blue water, or, alternatively, explore the island’s rugged inland hikes and the Bronze Age ruins known as “nuraghi”.
Resort Capo Boi is new to the island’s hotel scene, having opened just last summer. This refreshing resort is set within a conservation area and consequently offers unspoilt surroundings. It boasts its own private sandy bay, an impressive infinity pool with breathtaking Capo Carbonara Bay views and five-star amenities. Facilities include a small amphitheatre and activities such as snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding and tennis. Find even deeper relaxation in the expansive spa, or during yoga and Pilates classes before spending evenings on the open-air terrace bar with live DJ acts.
How to Get There
My family and I had a wonderful time at this hotel. Despite being fairly full (around 80% according to the duty manager) there was so much space you would have thought it was almost empty! The kids loved the pools, playing on the beach and especially the Falky disco. The restaurant is a buffet but the standard is excellent and the chefs take pride in their work. We stayed in a family villa which was perfect for the 5 of us.
Some very minor things that would have made it even better: the pizza restaurant only opened on our last day (1st June) and until then it was a choice between a fairly expensive, relatively formal lunch at the beach restaurant; a poolside burger; or a cheese and ham toastie from the bar. We weren't informed this restaurant would be closed before travelling. The service is also a bit patchy at breakfast and dinner - no doubt everyone is working hard and willing to help, probably just not enough staff.
We were staying in this hotel 5 days. We had a quite large room sizing 30m2, with a view on the garden and a large terrasse where resting or having breakfast. The room was clean and the bed confortable. The bathroom was beautiful with marble. We ate at the restaurant which is more a buffet than a real restaurant. But the food was quite good, especially seafood... we could ask cookers for fresh fish cooking. The breakfast was quite good and it was amazing taking eat in front of the sea. The plus of the hotel is the private beach with fine sand. If you don t like swimming in the sea, you have 2 swimmingpools. The hosts are very kind and careful to the clients. So i recommand this hotel, especially if you have family...
I can’t recommend this hotel highly enough if you’re travelling with children. It is so nice to stay in a five star resort where children are welcome and catered for so well. Our toddler loved the Falky Club and the staff there are wonderful. The private beach is perfect and there’s a great playground too. General atmosphere of the hotel is very relaxing and in a beautiful setting. We stayed in a sea view junior suite which was a great size with a big balcony and of course a great view. Overall a wonderful week and I hope to return soon!
Beautiful hotel with the best Italian staff who go to great lengths to please and accommodate. Would not return however because it is too German! Felt like being in Germany on the med. if the hotel wishes to accommodate other nationalities then it MUST cater for all not just the Germans. The first language used by all the staff is German, all TV channels mainly in German, kids club mainly German the list goes on and on and on. The only TV channel in English was BBCworld news. When you go to Sardinia you want to feel you are on an Italian Island not Germany. Plus no small print tells you that there is only one restaurant open until June! So no pizzas sadly, plenty of strudel however!
We were on a budget this time and had been to the Forte Village before. This was a pale shadow in every sense. Being frogmarched to reception to prove we were half board was a low point. Then they insisted we provide evidence again a day or so later (which we did). Anyone would think we were trying to steal the food. The food was quite good - but but not worth stealing. Do not infer your customers are lying. Twice.
