Club Cala Blu, Sardinia Italy
★ ★ ★
While it is true that this property stands in an isolated location, it commands spectacular coastal views. It also has an air of tranquillity despite having a lively animation team. Activities are geared specifically towards the younger members of a party but retain in mind that Italians of all ages enjoy the activities organised by the management company. A tranquil location and lively ambience is the order of the day.
Standing in a somewhat isolated position atop a hill overlooking other properties 700m away, the 2-storey modern property stands off the road reached by a 100m paved driveway bordered by low hedges shielding neatly tendered lawns. A large portico covers the set down area in front of the floor to ceiling glass door entrance.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
The square eaved foyer has brown tile flooring and, apart from a few 2-seater sofas, only houses a large reception counter. The restaurant is located at the furthest end of a long open-sided colonnaded walkway and is furnished with sturdy wooden framed wicker chairs and predominantly square tables with panoramic views out over the coast. Between here and the reception, leading off from the passage, is a games area with pool table and large video screens and a separate bar with both indoor and terrace seating.
The large pool deck is overlooked both by the restaurant and the 2nd floor main-building balconied rooms and is furnished with sunloungers and parasols with a separate terrace area set a little further back. Neat lawns and tidy flowerbeds and boxes surround the property where further rooms, some with balconies, are located in blocks towards the rear of the property.
