Hotel Cala Di Volpe in Sardinia, Italy
Off the west coast of Italy, the island of Sardinia is a distinctive Costa Smeralda destination with expansive Mediterranean and mountain views, rich history, and is home to one of the most famous jet-setting destinations in the world, Porto Cervo. Here, Hotel Cala di Volpe was designed to recall an ancient island village. This member of The Luxury Collection of Starwood Hotels & Resorts welcomes with towers, poticoes and artfully adorned bedrooms with private balconies.
Its grounds dappled with rosemary bushes and rockroses, the hotel offers a stylish base from which to explore the area's vineyards and picturesque small towns. Play a round of golf at the adjacent Pevero Golf Club or take advantage of the hotel's onsite water-skiing school. If you're looking for history, nearby archeological ruins date back to 1700 B.C. For a peaceful day trip, visit the low-key Maddelana archipelago or the old Spanish town of Alghero.

Reviews for Hotel Cala Di Volpe
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 nicest beaches on the island. The hotel lobby, grounds and bars are gorgeous and unique. It costs a huge fortune to stay here, but you can fully tour and sample it for a dinner or lunch. Around 400 EUR for dinner for 2 with dancing on special summer party nights.

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
I stayed in this hotel twice . Last time in august. Still good , but isn't the most luxurious hotel anymore in Costa Esmeralda .The hotel is located in a wonderful place , they built the hotel around the fishing village preserving , the colors and style , what gives a special charm to the property The staff and service are perfect . You can take the hotel's boat and stay in theirs private beach .The water is clear , a great place to spend the morning .The pool restaurant is delicious ,they have a buffet until about 3:00 pm . The breakfast is more than complete , it is served in the same place , facing the beach .Comfortable rooms , and the amenities are Acqua di Parma. To go to Porto Principe , the shopping mall and restaurants , you need a car , it is about 2 or 3 km away from the hotel . I recommend .

While I could tell you about the beauty and charm of the hotel, its magnificent setting ; I really want to say, this hotel had the best beds we ever slept in. We love to travel. These beds enveloped you. Total luxury. The hotel is beautiful, the staff incredible.Breakfast out near the pool. We spent 40 minutes eating a wonderful breakfast, and 75 minutes people watching.Our stay was wonderful. A perfect spot to relax after 10 days touring Siciliy and before heading to Venice.

Donâ€™t get me wrong; this is a very nice hotel, just not my cup of tea. Itâ€™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, my girlfriend asking the receptionist in Italian if he had a nice room for us, the answer was â€śwell not really, itâ€™s okayâ€ť, we were like â€śexcuse me, what??â€ť. In the end the room was absolutely fine. But these old receptionists really need to attend a customer service/charm course. Apart from this the staff was very friendly and helpful throughout. In general the food was very good, even though the service, especially for lunch was on the slow side, 45 minutes seems to be the average wait, even for simple dishes. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Great facilities overall, good pool service, nice gym including a very nice outdoor gym, and free boat service to their private beach, which makes the stay good value for money. A spa would have been nice though. And charging paying guests for using the cabanas by the pool is just an insult, which is probably why we didnâ€™t see any of them used once during our 6 nights at the hotel. All together a nice and comfortable hotel, just not to my taste, and we would probably not return for a second stay.
