“It was relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

I was staying at Stella Maris for 10 Days with my family. The location is very quiet, some 15 bike minutes out of Villasimius, has a beautiful garden, enough space to stay in privacy in the garden and a beautiful seaside.

The rooms are almost new. We had two seaside rooms. We tried to get two rooms next to each other, but the receptionist told us, this is not possible, even we booked 9 Month in advance and were asking then for those two rooms. There is definitely some room for improvement.

The restaurant is a highlight. We all very much enjoyed the time spending there in the morning and also in the evenings. The staff in the restaurant is doing an excellent job and was always friendly. Extras were provided if desired.

Throughout the day there is the bar with snacks. Loved that food. Very good quality but also expensive.

We also tried the bikes. They are ok. I know how hard it is to keep equipment clean and in good shape. For the price for this rental, we would expect a little more.

Overall a very nice and relaxing place. Very friendly staff. We consider a return to Stella Maris.
I can recommend this place for couples who love to stay in peace or for families with young adults.

Room Tip: In general, the room doors are let noise come in.

This is just one of the best beach places to stay and we stay here regularly. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly. The food is good, though on our previous visits it was better still.
You can be unlucky with the beach. The hotel is in a nature resort even though there is a Marina on the far side of the bay. Not sure whether the marine activity disturbs the seaweed and cause algie to be released, however the beach front gets covered with the stuff (up to eight inches and 4 foot wide). A good wind will clear it though the municipality could do more. Despite this we had a great holiday managed 2 daily swims and put on 3 kg!

Room Tip: A room at the rear will guarantee peace and quiet the front will give you a sea view.

I have travelled through all the South Sardinia, I have changed several hotels and resorts. And I can say for sure - this is the best spot for perfect vacations. The hotel is so nice, I can say its lovely. This hotel is better than some 5* hotels in South Sardinia for its room quality, place and views! If I come back, I will come for sure here.

Room Tip: sea view rooms are very recomended-the sea is so near :)

Dear Mr Joe,

we are pleased to thank you for your suggest and also for your comment.
Our location in directly to the sea and therefore is not in the Village instead bar is always open from 10 to 24 and we regret that it has not enjoyed the atmosphere that is one of our strengths.
We will however try to put into practice his valuable suggestions for improving the service and customer care that has always distinguished us.
We hope to have you soon as our dear Guest

My husband and I stayed here with our 17 month old daughter wk beg 27th oct. We booked through Charming Sardinia and got a fantastic deal with it being the last week of the season. We booked a deluxe sea view room and paid £1200 total for half board. Looking at the prices in the high season we know we got an excellent deal! The hotel was itself charming and as all the reviews state the quality of the food was fabulous. The hotel has no real children facilities and it is not children orientated but our daughter was made to feel very welcome by all and even had a few kisses for the waiters!
Our room was exactly the same as the deluxe rooms shown in the photos and we requested the big terrace which was perfect for afternoons in the sun away from the wind! The beds were huge and extremely comfortable and our daughter was v happy in the cot they provided.
The weather wasn't as good as we would have liked but we knew this would be the case. The hotel pool, beach and numerous nearby gorgeous beaches were brilliant for walks, a touch of sunbathing and kite flying. We would love to experience hot sunny days on them with their crystal clear waters and white sand. Sardinia was far less developed than we imagined and as previous reviewers said the hotel is in a very quiet small town. Don't go with high expectations for nightlife and loads of restaurants it's v small. Well worth paying half board not only for high quality but god knows where we would have eaten at this time of year.
I know lots of people have said that there are unnecessary charges such as the 25euros for 12 hours of Internet but we were given this free. The hotel charge 190euros for airport taxi so we hired a car and it has v secure parking behind locked gates. Beware of excessive charges on Sardinia for hire cars! The excess is the issue! If you are happy to walk upto 3km you can access 3/4 lush beaches . Don't think a car would be worth the hassle in high season the ride up there is pretty hairy particularly as we did it at 11pm
One key thing which we and a few other guests thought was lacking in the hotel was information. We would have liked a pack in our rooms about the services on offer such as the Internet/bike hire/tennis etc and even down to things like the different coffees available at breakfast and the fact you could have boiled/scrambled/fried eggs. You had to work this out for yourself which is not great for this standard of hotel.
Other visitors were right about the Internet not working in your rooms. We were glad we didn't pay as we could only get it in the downstairs sitting rooms.
Wine at dinner was v reasonable starting at 20euros and we really enjoyed the selection of both red and white. We loved the suckling pig/steaks and fish on offer and having langoustines as your first of 4 courses was a real luxury each night. Couldn't fault it: from our point of view we were concerned about taking a baby to dinner at 7.30pm when she was normally in bed but an afternoon nap and the iPad ensured we and the other diners had a peaceful meal each night.!
All in all a v relaxing, gorgeous hotel which was v Sardinian and in a beautiful setting. Go there if you want lovely food and a total relaxation.

We have just come back from a long weekend at the Stella Maris Hotel. Weather still warm however very cloudy. Staff were very friendly. Rooms very comfortable with lovely sea views. Hotel very traditional italian style. Food was excellent, especially evening meal with a four course dinner every night. Was very quiet in local areas. Some drinks quite expensive, paid 15 euros an hour for tennis. Overall would reccomend especially if your looking for a quiet time away.

The restaurant is amazing: 5 stars food. We had half board and we enjoyed any single dinner (and breakfast). The location is great (directly on a nice beach) and our room was comfortable.

The hotel is very relaxing and the staff very friendly. The light lunch served on the garden is a nice experience as well.

The hotel does not provide any entertainment in the evening and getting there by car may be a good advice to explore the near by beaches and easily go to villasimius in the evening for a walk.

This is definitely an hotel that I would suggest for a relaxing stay in a beautiful location with excellent food.
