We wanted a break from the hurly burly and that is exactly what we had. The hotel is in a beautifully calm situation, nestled in the hills back from the coast and set in gloriously maintained gardens. It is small and intimate but our room was spacious and had a lovely covered patio area overlooking the gardens, where we enjoyed our afternoon tea -very English. The quirky layout of the rooms dotted about the gardens was like a little village. We found it a very well run hotel with exceptional and friendly staff who gave the impression that we and our comfort were of paramount concern. The food was excellent and we swapped to half board as there was no incentive to forage elsewhere -the dining room was charming, overlooking the main pool, with a view of the sea beyond the palm trees. The Cruccuris Resort is a fair distance from the village of Villasimius and would require a bicycle or car to access the village or beautiful beaches as the walk is along a main road but car hire is reasonable and bicycles are available to hire at the hotel. We spent our idle moments designing a pool heating system as the pools in May were disappointingly chilly! It is our only criticism of the hotel's facilities and doubtless a little further into the year the pools will be warmed by the sun. We would confidently recommend this charming hotel to anyone wishing a quiet retreat in the sun but it is definitely not for the raucous clubbers!

Hotel had huge bathroom and bed. All facilities were as expected and staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We used the hotel as a base to visit the south and south east beaches from Costa Rei to Chia. The beach kit offered by the hotel was great.

"Trendy, clever boutique hotel on the waterfront."
When we arrived, we were led to the comfortable breakfast room, and given coffee. This was to give the staff time to move luggage to our room, and make copies of our passports.
Each room is unique, they are certainly trendy, some have dodgy artwork (!), ours had a very comfy bed (and they put a small bed for our kid at no charge), our friends found their bed too soft, so suggest asking when making the booking if you have a preference.
Breakfast was the best we'd had in 2 weeks, and came with a panorama view of the bay.
The free parking actually refers to the fact that some of the spaces on the main street in front are free to non-residents. Fortunately there is high turnover on the street and you only have to wait 5-10 mins, but we'd imagined a private parking lot!
The apartments are facilities are well maintained and the pool was perfect offering sun for my wife and ample shade for me. Good choice for breakfast, food of high quality. We ate lunch and dinner at the hotel on a couple of occasions. For this holiday you need a car although the town centre is 15 min walk. Tip, avoid the restaurants on the main piazza they are poor, but just off the square there are some excellent ones that are very cheap.

Free diving event during our stay. Short walk to beach. You may need a car if you want to explore further afield. Check out the Basillica and castle. Staff at hotel very helpful. Restaurant and bar are next door at Setar hotel via covered walkway
We stayed in a seafront room, nice balcony, room very comfortable tho not really large...breakfast was tasty and abundant. This young staff is helpful, friendly, English-speaking and they go out of their way to accomodate any rquest. There is bus service within minutes, parking if you have a car. Highly recommend this new hotel.
Our stay was most enjoyable. The staff were helpful and welcoming. There was plenty of choice at breakfast. The buses stopped just a few yards outside the hotel and were very frequent. We would have no hesitation in staying there again if we were in the area.
A wonderful experience near end of season. The setting overlooking an extensive beautiful beachfront is delightful and complemented by spacious grounds with sunbathing and seating areas. Staff are very well trained and always friendly. Dining, in every respect, was a treat indeed. A lot of attention is given to establishing, throughout the resort, an ambiance of warm and inviting areas to relax to enjoy the amenities offered, Would definitely include this resort in a return visit to beautiful Sardinia.
The Rooms and Hotel itself were spotlessly clean , meticulously tidy , well decorated and set in beautiful grounds with an excellent pool . Reception Staff were outstanding - Simone, Lia and Francesca who all spoke good English were always cheerful and for whom nothing was too much trouble and used their initiative to sort out anything out of the ordinary. Domestic staff were always polite , considerate and always seemed to be working hard .Breakfast items were always fresh and consisted of a reasonable selection. Evening meal portions were too small . Room facilities were a little basic (no drink-making facilities, air-con not operable, bath towels poor quality and thus ineffective ) and certain items didnt always work (Eg TV- which Simone thankfully replaced -also 1 Coffee machine at breakfast was always out of action meaning the queue for the remaining one was consistently long ) Capoterra beach unfortunately suffers from huge backwash of marine plant debris and is generally run down in appearance .Hotel is set on edge of estate with shop area close by , and one-way system takes a bit of working out .
