'Accommodation was as expected ,staff at le dune went out of their way to help. Liked the fact that there were relatively few Brits and the resort and most of the guests were Italian.Though all the staff spoke excellent English the entertainment was largely in Italian though there was a lot of mime. It didn't seem to bother the children. The resort is very much geared for families with young children ( under 12)' Trusted Customer - September 2017
'Great family resort. Excellent value for money in a beautiful location. Staff were wonderful'. Trusted Customer - July 2016
'Beautiful facilities for people who like to stay in bungalows, spread out over a huge area with lots of green areas and plants, several pools, restaurants, access to a nice beach, a small market place and many activities for every one. Even if it is packed full, it does not feel like it, you always find a place at the pool or at the beach. The staff (all of them) are nice (in the genuine way), and truly professional, eager and empowered to answer any question or solve any issue that might come.' S. - August 2015
'This resort is delightful. The rooms are set in small apartment blocks hidden behind bamboo canes meaning you get a lot of privacy but it's only a short walk to a nice pool or bar or restaurant. We really enjoyed ourselves. The beach is excellent with soft sand and nice waves so the children found it very exciting. The seven restaurants were excellent with an absolutely stunning selection of food. Our children, who are usually the sausage chips and beans types, were happily munching away on delicious Sardinian seafood including muscles and shrimps! The staff were without exception charming.'
