Not knowing anything about sardinia, I really stressed about which area to stay in as we needed a family room and the majority of hotels required us to take 2 rooms. Hotel Sant' Andrea looked beautiful on the website and I recieved a warm emailed back instantly.
The location of san Pantaleo was perfect. An easy 20 min drive from Olbia airport and no more than 10 min drive to stunning white sand beaches. I had Arzachena booked originally as on the map it looks quite close, however it is a long way uphill and really quite barren whereas San Pantaleo is a charming artists village with a beautiful square where the locals sit in the evening surrounded by pink bougainvillea trees and a very relaxed wine bar serving local cheeses and honey... Really memorable!
The hotel itself is like a little quiet boutique hideaway. They offered us two rooms that were accessed by one door, however it had 2 double beds and our children are too old to share a bed. This was no issue, within 10 minutes they had removed the bed and even the wardrobe, to return with 2 single beds. Both rooms had power showers and large mini fridges. They even left homemade biscuit treats as a welcome. It is run by a family however the service from all of the staff was amazing. Breakfast was the nicest in the 10 days in sardinia, with an abundance of homemade goods, in such a beautiful setting.
We ate in the hotel restaurant and the food was divine,from steaks, chicken, fish and pasta. The wine was chilled to perfection, local white tasting like 'amber nectar', worth every penny.
Without a doubt, San Pantaleo and the hotel sant'Andrea was a perfect choice. Both Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo were great to see, with the luxury boats and cars, but returning each evening to sit either in the square or at the side of the pool with a glass of wine really made this holiday for us. We plan to return again for longer and wouldn't look anywhere else. Make sure you take a boat to La maddalena island, the crystal clear water I doubt can be beaten!
