Such a wonderful experience. The Hotel Arbatax team has been like a family to us. This place offer a nice balance of services and privacy, we felt more like in a villa than in an hotel. We spent there a wonderful week. Every breakfast was a joy, the express scrambled eggs with guanciale were really good and the fresh tasty fruits helped to kick the day! The room was clean, well furnished and really spaecy, huge bathroom offering good selection of beauty products. The bed was comfortable and the automating AC perfect. The little loggia was amazing to relax in the evening. The little goodbye gift was also really appreciated. We would for sure come back here. Strongly recommended
