8/10 Very good

The dinner and breakfast spread was delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful even though most didn't really speak English but again, this is Italy, so I don't expect many to speak English.

Great apartment.
Nice apartment, sadly the kitchen lacked an oven. Incredible value for money although there was little to do in the area and a hired car was needed.

4/10 Fair

The front desk greeted us and immediately shouted our room # by hand I f us the key. If this would happen in the US, the clerk would have been fired in the spot. You never ever Disclose a room # in public. This hotel is NOT a 4 star hotel. Get your facts right Expedia

8/10 Very good

Friendly and good value
The Califfo is a little dated in the bedrooms and basic but value for money. All of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and speak good English. The plumbing seems to be struggling as the toilets keep refilling unless the flush is forced back into position. We had a TV, safe and fridge in the room which was useful as there's a couple of supermarkets within walking distance and the food and drinks are very cheap. We just had breakfast at the hotel, which was continental and fresh coffees could be ordered from the bar as the urn option wasn't great. I'm Gluten free, so was provided with a basket with a variety of GF crackers, toasts and muffins each morning. To see the better parts of Sardinia you'll need a car if staying here or use the bus system which is actually simple to negotiate, particularly with the use of Google Maps and the hotel staff, as well as being excellent value. Short trips need a ticket buying in advance from the kiosk near the pharmacy across the road from the hotel, but longer trip tickets can be purchased directly from the driver. The pool area is lovely. Unfortunately the jacuzzi wasn't in action when we were there. Wifi was provided, but not great.

6/10 Good

Good hotel and staff - poor location.
The hotel itself was fine and the staff were very good and very helpful, it's biggest problem was it's location. It wasn't near the beach or the town, in fact it was near nowhere. The only plus part about it's location was the fact it had a bus stop right outside the hotel to take you somewhere where the was something to do. The menu was limited and quite expensive and only one restuarant across the (busy) road to eat. Pool and surround nice, wi-fi very good, bar area- not too good. Although a very nice hotel, we wouldn't stay there again - sorry :(
