originally took a bus from Cagliari however did not get off at the Santa Margherita stop as it was in the middle of nowhere; had to take a taxi from Chia (last stop on route, and a hefty €30 fare); unless you have your own car or taking a taxi walking from the main road isn't a good idea (long walk cobbled and dusty country road, not suitable for suitcases).
hotel is gorgeous, well kept and clean, staff lovely (especially Jonathan who was very helpful).
kids friendly (kids pool, swings, etc) but full of mainly 50+ guests (maybe because I was travelling in early September), 3x pools (one infinity pool with a fabulous sea view), menu a la carte (3 course dishes, menu in IT and EN, exquisite dishes, 3x to chose from), long wine list.
bus to Chia/Posada early AM, €4, bus €3.80 from Cagliari, taxi to Pula €17, €70 to Cagliari
no need to reserve sunbeds, a lot of space at every single one of the pools. very very nice hotel but there was no entertainment in the evenings and as you'd need to take a taxi to Pula to get to a bar, the night can prove rather costly.
wasps were a massive problem, maybe because of all these gorgeous flowers around. they particularly liked scrambled eggs. breakfast was a bit of a let down, not much choice offered.
towel €4 non refundable, €4 beer, €1.80 water from the bar.
overall it's a little bit boring yet lovely hotel. The plugs are different from other standard European two bolts, these have three but not unlike the English ones. In the end I used to use one in the bathroom.
