Campioni Soccer Academy made the holiday for us
We chose to visit Chia Laguna as the British run football academy was highly recommended to us by friends. We were not disappointed. I have never written on here but when I read some negative reviews I felt the need to comment as I can’t recommend this place enough on what it has to offer! We signed our 12 year old son on to the Campioni Soccer Academy and booked our holiday through them (best price available on the internet). The week began on the Sunday evening with a very personable and friendly drinks reception hosted by the Campioni Soccer Academy who were so welcoming. The children were each presented with their personalised football kits by Liverpool FC ex player Emile Heskey who was to be their coach for the week. The training was top class and was lead by Dave who works at Fulham FC, our son plays regular football in the UK but what he learnt from this week was really recognisable on our return. He made so many friends (as did we) and he ended up spending more time with his new football friends than with us! Evenings were fun chatting to other parents and Emile and his family. The resort is safe and family friendly so the children enjoyed their freedom, the beach is stunning and the buffet food is very varied, we didn’t get bored. All in all a great holiday experience thanks to Campioni and the friendly and fun group we met!
My partner and I visited Chia Laguna in September to enjoy the serine and relaxing atmosphere when children are back to school and the place is ideal for couples. We got exactly what we wished for – beautiful Sardinia with its stonewashed slick-rocky narrow streets going up and down, lavish tropical gardens, gorgeous beach and an astonishing sea that gets panoramically stormy one day and mesmerizingly quiet and turquoise another. It was amazing that people who worked there always seemed to be happy – friendly, smiling, relaxed. They always made sure to greet you, it was very sweet. When you go the sea, there’s a choo-choo train that will take you from the Village to the beach (around a 5 min drive) – if you come to the station and see the train has just moved, don’t be distraught! The driver will be sure to look back and to stop for you if you wave! Our special regards to the chefs and the supporting staff of the Bouganville restaurant. The dinners there were fantastic – every evening there was a new menu of hot dishes; authentic Italian recipes, good varieties of salads and unrivalled Italian deserts. We would also really like to complement the reception staff. Any question or request I had for them they were attentive to. A couple of times I’d pop in and give them a task to work on for me. I would then go to the beach, and they’d sort everything out and call me back to report they’d completed it – every time polite and patient. We think that the management in Chia Laguna is nice and respectful to every one of their staff members, which is very important – people are happy to work there and it is visible in everything they do. I’ve never seen any staff member walking around without a purpose. Everyone looked busy with their job in hand yet they all felt as one well organised team. Overall, Chia Laguna is a beautiful resort and we are definitely planning to come back. However, these are some points for improvement: I didn’t particularly like the sauna – the atmosphere there was a little bland and cold, different from the rest of the resort. There were also no umbrellas on the roof above the sun beds next to the pools. It looked very bare, no flowers or anything to accessorise the place. Water in the pools should not have had any chlorine – nowadays there are many other reliable methods to disinfect. The bar in the sauna should be offering more than lemon water and not-so-fresh herbal tea, things like smoothies, organic yogurt ice-creams, fruit salads, variety of teas, as well as a must-have – some nice relaxing music which would elevate the mood. (the silence there seemed threatening!) Also, if it is possible, there should be a pool, or a couple of pools, with sea water anywhere on the territory of the resort for the days when the sea is too stormy to swim in. We do recommend this place to everyone with a need to rest and recover and especially to those with a positive attitude as to protect the lovely people working there for us all.
So disapointed- Not worth the money
The amount that is requested for the rooms, food is not at all worth the money. The quality is just not there, not in the rooms, not in the buffet. We shared our disappointment with manager and reception... both could not care less.
Totally disappointment from day one
We stayed at the Hotel Village from 31.08.2019 - 10.09.2019 ( 2 rooms incl half board - price approx 7500 € for 10 days ) Food is a big disappointment, do not pay for breakfast or half board. loss of money. Rooms are very used and needs renovation - big time. Daily cleaning is very poor. We experienced broken toiletseat, broken key, filthy floor by our first entrance to the room. After trying the buffet restaurant 2 days we had enough… food was awful and unpolite service. we wanted to try the other restaurant at the resort but again we should upgrade for entering meaning pay 50€ per adult and 25€ per child. For us meaning € 200 additional + beverages !!!!. We asked the reception for nearby restaurants..... but they did not no anyone. However the we found an very nice italian restaurant only 150 metes away. Care´r Luna. Excellent food and wine for good money. 5 persons incl 3 course and wine and coffee 160-190 €. We were recommend to go to La Bottega "Pula" 10-15 min by Taxi. We asked reception for transport... Price 76€ each way + 20 € if we needed retur after 2130hrs.... I asked for a "normal" Taxi but reception could not help with calling normal Taxi agency, they did not know were to call. Super service - NOT. One good thing is the miniclub and teenclub and of course the nearby beaches. Pay a vist at the beach kiosk ( Eta - Mauro ) very helpfull and friendly persons. All in all they write 4 star Hotel but it is only 2 star...…
Holiday - Adventure group
I was at Chia Laguna Resort from 4 to 8 September. The resort is very large, in fact it contains a 3, 4, 4s and 5 star hotel! I'm a 19 year old girl and I could still participate in various activities with the adventure group. The padventure is a group of guys from 13/14 to 17 (for me they could make an exception). I took part in their activities for 3 days and I had a lot of fun! Lorenzo Peirone the group leader of the animators is a very competent and capable guy. I had a great time with the group and I also met new people! For all the boys and girls who have from 13/14 to 17 years I highly recommend it, you will not regret it (the animator speaks Italian and English!) I would like to thank in particular the availability of the resort staff and the animators who have always been helpful and kind to me!
