“Perfect”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We have been back from Sardinia for over a month, and the kids are still talking about it, especially Hotel Mariposa, where we were made to feel very welcome. The hotel is spotlessly clean, and although we didn't have the best of views, the room was able to comfortably sleep the 5 of us, the 3 kids in the main room with the double and single bed, while we were able to sleep in in the double room at the back. Every single member of staff makes you feel welcome, and they did their best to help with any questions we might have, from checking the wind direction to recommend the best beach, ordering taxis and making restaurant suggestions. This a small, family run hotel and a wonderfully refreshing change from the anonymous large hotels which dominate the holiday market. Well done and thank you, we will be back.

A fabulous family run hotel. warm friendly helpful staff (with very good English I might add), beautiful gardens, clean comfortable rooms, brilliant location, excellent breakfasts. I can't speak highly enough of this hotel. The pictures of the gardens are real - it actually looks like that! Can't wait to return!

I am writing this review in response to the appalling treatment we had in booking this hotel. Having emailed in English and after we waited for 4 days for a response we asked one of our Italian friends to call and make a reservation as the English on the phone is just not understandable. The reservation was verbally agreed and confirmed for certain dates, us following with the card details to pay the deposit. No email was sent to us and when we called to pay we were told they are fully booked and nobody had processed our reservation.
I am really disappointed and now having this experience will be very reluctant to have any more dealings with this hotel!!!

Don't email them in English, you are wasting your time!!!

We spent great holidays in Hotel Mariposas. Service was excelent, rooms are light and spacious enough with great view. The garden and the pool area are just the oasis of calm and peace. breakfast was very good, not typical italian, vith big variety of everything, fresh pastry and very good coffee. it is only 5 minutes walk from the beach, close to good cafes and restaurants. Thank you for our holidays!

My wife and I stayed at hotel Mariposas for a week at end of July and had a relaxing time - just what the doctor ordered as a respite from working lives.

Selected hotel because of on-site dive centre, but found all the reviews to be true. In fact we walked to the beach once, and then spent the rest of the time (when I was not diving) relaxing in the gardens by the pool.

A short stroll into the town in the evening for dinner, and then back to a comfortable room for the night. However, although the hotel was excellent, we were disappointed with Villasimius as a vacation destination and so would be unlikely to revist.

Only down side was reversing rental car into low pillar at side of gate on way out back to the airport...

My husband and I have had yet another very relaxing holiday in this beautiful hotel. The family who own and run it are exceptionally nice and cannot do enough for you. Most of the rooms are overlooking the pool area though there are a few with the balconies/verandas at the back. The breakfast is very good with a varied choice of hot and cold food served in the very nice breakfast room with lovely views. The hotel does not offer evening meals but do offer snacks at lunch time, these are very reasonably priced and not skimped at all . The gardens surrounding the pool area are beautiful and well tended.

We flew into Cagliari and took the train into the centre of town, crossed the road to the bus station then took the bus to Villasimius. the train cost 1.25 euros and the bus to Villasimius was 6.50 euros return (a lot better than 100 euros each way by taxi!!)

The beach is approx. 10 mins. walk away and the town approx. 15 mins

This is our second holiday in the Mariposas but will definitely not be our last.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper level overlooking the pool. These have lovely sea views.
