Hotel Scintilla
Ranked #10 of 27 Hotels in San Teodoro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Scintilla has an unbeatable location right next to the stunning beach La Cinta, the center of San Teodoro is a pleasant 10 min walk away. The hotel itself is a very nice looking building with pleasant green territory. Rooms are very basic, but spacious and very clean with sufficient closet space. The bathroom was very large and functional. Towels changed daily. Each room has a balcony. There is no air conditioning, but it's not a problem. The room was cool at night, I even used a warmer blanket a few times. The hotel is very quite, so the quality was sleep was good.
Their breakfast was enjoyable with good variety of baked goods, cold cuts, sweets, fruit and great coffee. There is also a daily dinner provided at Scintilla. We only had it once on the day of the arrival and looking back now, we should have had it at least one more time, as it was really good value for money (lasagne was fantastic!) and the service was super friendly. There is also a nice bar/lounge area.
Scintilla's staff is very attentive and helpful. Special thanks to the owners Piere and Valentina for their hospitality. Piere picked us up from the bus stop upon arrival and showed us the area and some restaurants, it was also very kind of him to give us a ride to one of the further located restaurants. Welcome drinks were also a very nice touch ). We had a wonderful holiday in Scintilla, would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: The balcony view variates greatly. I would choose a room on the second floor with either front yard...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the hotel, the owners were very helpful. Good location for exploring beautiful beaches in the area and the rooms were very clean. I would recommend staying at this hotel.

This is a nice hotel right next to one of the nicest beaches in the area, which is perfect for someone like me who is partial to a couple of beers down at the beach! The breakfast was lovely (my girlfriend said that it was the best fried egg that he has eaten) and they had good advice for nice resteraunts in the town, which are plentiful. Town is only a ten minute walk away.
The manager, Piere and his wife valentina were very friendly and Piere even drove us to a resteraunt on the first night we arrived. The room was nice and clean with a balcony, which was perfect! It was quiet at the hotel, which was probably because it was the beginning of the season, overall nice place to stay and would recommend.

Our experience at Hotel Scintilla was unforgettable. The hotel is beautiful, well maintained, and a minute walk to the nicest beach in Sardinia. The proprietor, Pierre Gradzciano and his family were very hospitable and made us feel like we were family. We shared many laughs and drinks, not to mention the most delicious cheese and wine on the planet. Even though my son did not speak Italian, he and Georgio 's boys became fast friends, sharing a common love for soccer (futball). The free breakfast buffet was a real treat. The food was delicious and Pierre Gradzciano' s son was a delightful young man who spoke excellent English and made us cappuccino and scrambled eggs when we showed up late to the buffet. We travel frequently and this was by and far the best vacation we ever had. We are definitely coming back.
