The hotel is not in the middle of town which is actually quite nice to get away and see another part of town. Poetto beach was easy to navigate to and was also within running distance. However, at the actual hotel, the accomodation was very basic and certainly had not been updated in years (at least on the top level). There were parties/weddings at the outdoor bar next door which was very lively, but if you are looking to relax, it could be disturbing. The "private beach" was rocky and a friend that we were with cut herself trying to take a dip. Water shoes are recommended. Further, we were delayed with check-in about 2hours than what was initially promised. An overall average to below average rating for accomodations.
BUT, the completely redeeming factor of the entire experience was the restaurant, Villasimias & the people of Sardinia! First, the food at the restaurant on the terrace was amazing! Especially the Pizzas! And prices that were completely reasonable. I would highly recommend a stop at the restaurant but would not recommend for the accomodation unless you are happy with the very basic conditions and are not sensitive to late night noise. Bus ride to Villasimis is around 10euro from main station downtown and was WELL WORTH the day trip. I would suggest going straight to Villasimis to any future travellers looking for a relaxing/beautiful beach experience and cutting the time in Cagliari to short stop in.
The people of Sardinia were amazingly friendly and very interested in helping to ensure we had a memorable time in their country. This was very much so appreciated and overall our experience outside of the rooms themselves was brilliant vacation and I'd do it all over again!
