Amazing honeymoon stay
We visited Chia Laguna for the first half of our honeymoon and it was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble for them. The accommodation was beautiful and we received an upgrade to a beautiful garden room. The whole resort was clean and tidy, especially the pool which can always be a hard place to keep pristine but it was immaculate. The food was beautiful, not only in the main restaurant but also there was a brilliant selection at the buffet across in the other hotels too. We also arranged to do a cooking lesson through the hotel which was great fun, a visit to a local family's house to make 2 types of pasta followed by sitting down to eat lunch with the gamily - what a wonderful experience! A thoroughly enjoyable stay and would recommend the hotel to anyone!

Fabulous stay! This is our last day, but we’ve had a great time at Chia’s Laguna hotel. This part of Sardinia is very picturesque and the hotel is well situated, with some beautiful vistas of the coast (amazingly blue sea), lagoon and lovely looking valley. Well worth spending a bit extra and staying here. The staff members at the Laguna hotel are friendly, helpful and professional, but a special thanks to the manager Stefano, Elena in reception and sommelier Angelo at the Terraza restaurant for making our stay absolutely wonderful. Chia resort has a couple of hotels and restaurants, but the Terraza restaurant at the Laguna hotel is excellent and truly the best. You can choose the buffet for starters (instead of what is on offer), then there’s a choice for your second dish as well as the main course, and of course desert (there’s also some desert choices on the buffet table). Each night it has been a great selection of different dishes; we’ve enjoyed some excellent fish and seafood dishes thanks to very skilled chefs. There’s a very nice range of wines and we tried some excellent local wines. I came with my mother and we enjoyed going to the beach, which by the way is exactly like the website pictures, ie absolutely breathtaking. A section of the beach is reserved for hotel guests, and is well kept (as is the rest of the beach), but one thing to note is that if you want to be on the first or second row of sun loungers, you have to pay extra (unless you have booked a suite which is then free), ours came with the third row and it was fine, as we were not prepared to pay the daily going rate of circa 55 euros to be on the first row. There’s a beachside service for drinks and sandwiches etc, again very nice, but the Dune restaurant next to the beach has some great pizzas! The pool at the hotel is also lovely, again with amazing sea views. As for our room, we asked for one facing the pool and sea, and got one with a really lovely terrace. The hotel is impeccable, very nice furnishings, very clean and modern. Overall, this has been a very nice stay and one we would recommend to anyone looking for a luxurious beach holiday.
The website leads you to believe the hotel is on the beach and you will have beach views which is untrue. Also it seems to be that the people in Sardinia are extremely unwelcoming of American tourists. My husband and I were taken back by how rude they were, even some of the staff at the hotel. They would consistently check in on other guests during meals and by the pool and not us. During lunch we ordered a bottle of wine, our food came, we finished the meal and then the waiter came over, after several attempts to get his attention, to say that they were out of the wine we ordered. Giving us no opportunity to order something else to have with our meal. I even was laughed at when I order my coffee in Italian by another guest and the bartender. Furthermore, the hotel was not clear on explaining their amenities to us. You have two hours access to the hotel spa. We assumed that meant just steam showers or a sauna. Come to find out on our last day there in the late afternoon, this spa has 3-4 different pools with lounge chairs and beautiful scenery that we missed out on enjoying because of a lack of proper introduction and tour of the hotel. There is not much to explore in the surrounding area and the one beach club we ventured off to was rude to us as well. For a hotel in this price point we were extremely disappointed. American dollars and Euro are one in the same. We should have been treated with the same hospitality and respect as all the other visiting guests in the hotel and city alike. They had no problem swiping our credit card at the end of our stay to cover our cost but to be treated like we were is unacceptable.
Like coming home, but actually more beautiful!
Some of our friends and family probably think that we have no imagination and curiosity in life because we always spend our summer holidays at Chia Laguna Resort. It is a bit like going to visit good friends as the people who work there really make you feel like you belong, and do their best to make your vacation as perfect as possible. We have been there a total of 11 times and are already thinking about our next visit. There are a lot of returning guests, so many people seem to share our opinion. Food is absolutely fantastic, with Alessio (the maître) attentively coordinating the service. The hotel management changed this year and the new manager, Stefano, did a great job in providing both continuity and enhancements (the common areas were spic and span). The resort offers some interesting evening entertainment and this year they hired a magician who was simply a pleasure to watch. Of the staff, special thanks go to Steve, Ambra, Nicola, Daniele, Liliana, Daniela, Martina, Natalia, Tina, Alessandro and Davide for the outstanding service! This year we rented a car and explored the area a little (so we did show some curiosity after all), but I have to say that the beach at Chia was by far the best in the region. Still, having a car allows you to see some very interesting places such as Sant‘Antioco and the island of San Pietro, so I would recommend it if you have a bit of extra time.
