TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Poseidonia Arbatax
Arbatax is a small place and the hotel was located about half a mile from the beach but felt like it was out of town. We had a huge balcony overlooking a local nature reserve. The room standard was very good and the pizza restaurant within the hotel is thoroughly recommended too.

... marked sign off the main road to see a Nuraghe. The road became increasingly rocky as we made our way down a narrower and narrower road.

Disappointed, we went back to the resort and I got him to drop me off at the ...
... terrible and we spent more time trying to find a connection than actually looking at the internet or talking to people.
Our last activity of the day before we hit the hay was a late night swim in the tropical pool across from our room. It was set up to look more like a beach and we thought for sure we would get kicked out, but we didn't. Eventually we went back to the room and crashed for the night - it's hard work being in the sun all day!

We waited in the main area of the ticket station for 4 hours before we were able to board the ship. I got caught up on my blog entires and Brittany read a lot of an e-book on her iPhone. There were definitely a lot of ...
