Our week-long stay at Hotel I Graniti was an absolute pleasure, and we have owner Marco and manager Valentina to thank for this. This is a small hotel, and Marco takes great pride and pleasure in running it, and he also goes to great lengths to ensure that his guests are comfortable, happy and have everything they need. He is always around in reception (in an unobtrusive manner, he certainly doesn't intrude on people's space) if you want to ask what beach he recommends, or restaurant etc, and he helped us out on a number of occasions with good suggestions (he even helped us pay off a parking fine that we inadvertently got, and helped us avoid being stung for too much, which we certainly couldn't have done on our own!).
Our room was No 3 on the ground floor, next to reception. We were initially worried that being so close to the road would be a problem, but it really wasn't and we barely heard the traffic going by (it is a quiet road anyway). The breakfast terrace is also outside the window, but again we were not interrupted by any noise and were able to enjoy long lie-ins without being aware of people eating outside.
Breakfast was very good. A choice of homemade cakes baked by Marco's mother (Marco even packed us off with a selection of cakes and pastries on the day we checked out, and he also rang his mother to ask her to make a cake I'd particularly enjoyed on our last day, which we really appreciated), pastries, fruit, yoghurts, etc etc.
Villasimius is a lovely town, with great restaurants (La Lanterna was our favourite, a 10 minute walk from the hotel) and many, many beaches to choose from (our favourite was at Notteri, a 10 minute drive from the hotel).
A car is a must when staying in Villasimus (the hotel has a car park) if you are to see all the beaches the area has to offer.
I would recommend Hotel I Graniti to anybody. We travelled as a couple, but also saw families withy lung children, and elderly couples here, and everybody seemed to be very happy. It should also be noted that this hotel is kept scrupulously clean - every single day, our room and all other areas of the hotel were in pristine, immaculate condition. Sadly, this isn't a given in many other hotels I've visited.
What really makes this hotel so successful is the fantastic service from the staff, which is second to none. I hope we have the chance to visit again, and for longer. A week flew by.
