4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

Lovely hotel in a bit of a random location in a very untouristy town. The room was simple but elegant and the pool was fantastic. My only criticism was the very overpriced restaurant and bar but you can walk into Guspini and get a better meal and wine at a third of the price. The service on arrival also could have been a bit more attentive although the waiting staff were very friendly and helpful.

Everything about this hotel is right.
The staff could not be better, the layout and setting are perfect, the pool is brilliant and this part of Sardinia is stunning.
We spent a very relaxing week here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a less touristy location but still with plenty to do.

Yes, you wonder how such a gem found its way to Guspini. It has a moorish feel toit from its building to its use of water on the property. The pool is spectacular and the service from the front desk to the dining room (al fresco) were superb, not to mention the food. We passed a large winery and windmill farm on the way to the hotel. The grounds are well maintained .There is also a super market just outside the grounds which came in very handy for snacks and happy hours needs. A great time was had by our party of six!

I have no idea why they decided to build a hotel in Guspini. Guspini is a town with virtually nothing to recommend it, other than it's in a fairly dramatic setting with surrounding mountains. True, there are allegedly some interesting basaltic columns, but you have to walk through a piece of wasteland with a neo-brutalist graffiti-ridden crack-house to get there, so we didn't bother. There are a couple of fairly well-stocked agricultural supplies outlets and plenty of places to buy 1970s style polyester fashions. It's the sort of place you only go to visit if your auntie lives there.

However, the Tarthesh is a little way out of town (about a twenty-minute walk - but don't bother - away) and conveniently located next to the Lidl (the hotel's room info pack makes it clear they have a strict no-buying-anything-from-the-Lidl-and-eating-it-in-your-room policy which we of course ignored by buying two litres of water and a packet of crisps).

Don't let the Lidl put you off - the hotel is in a reasonably tidy residential area. and in fact is very pleasantly situated in nicely tended grounds. It's also nice to know that extremely keenly priced jars of low-quality bratwurst are available so close by.

We went for a senior suite. I'm not sure if the extra was worth it, as it's really only one room with with a long internal corridor with fitted wardrobes, and a large bathroom leading to a jacuzzi (a real one). The view was over the car park and the Lidl.

Having said that, it was a very pleasant room. It was kept very clean, and the bed was supremely comfortable. It was in the main hotel block. It may well be worth investigating the garden rooms as they look very nice as well and I think that the junior suites actually have a proper sitting room, instead of the largely pointless jacuzzi.

We ate in the hotel both nights we were there, and the food was excellent, as was the service. We were recommended some very pleasant Sardinian wine, and they were happy to keep the bottle for us to bring out the subsequent night. Breakfast is great, as long as you can avoid the huge flapping sheets which make half of the tables in the breakfast terrace unusable in anything over a very light wind.

The pool is lovely. It's modern with one end that slopes into the water like a fake beach. It was quite magical to see the swallows swooping down over the water to pick off insects (which incidentally never bothered us) or scoop up some water to drink.

It would have been nice if the bar had been open, but occasionally a staff member would come out to the pool to take drinks orders.

The service was a little idiosyncratic, but generally fairly enthusiastic. The web-site is a bit optimistic. For example, the restaurant is described as being open for lunch, but it wasn't on either of the two days were there (a Sunday and Monday - but in July, so it should have been high season), although they were happy to rustle up a very tasty panino for me (and a nice tuna salad for Lucy). I couldn't for the life of me get the Wifi to work (despite rebooting the router) and the other guests were having problems as well. There was no internet access in our room, despite it being advertised. I was trying to get away from work, so this was not disastrous, but it it may be more of an issue for others!

As a place to slob out by the pool for a couple of days, or to use as a base to explore the pretty (if not gobsmacking) countryside, it's highly recommended. The food, the service and pool are the outstanding features. But I still can't for the life of me figure out what it's doing there.

Room Tip: Don't bother with a senior suite, unless you want a jacuzzi.

This hotel is a hidden gem in a small Sardinian town. The visionaries of this hotel put in much thought and effort into creating a classy retreat. We used this hotel as a base for hitting up the West shore beaches in Sardinia and were blown away by the service and set up. The food is excellent (ask for the Bresaola - I will be serving it at my dinners back in the USA). Wait staff is very knowledgeable of the region and of the food and will go out of their way to accomodate your requests.

We had a freak incident where one of the guests accidentally locked an entry foyer door - the response of the front desk staff was about as best as one could ask for. They apologized, offered us free coffee and dessert while we waited, procured the services of a local locksmith late into the night and made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. Five stars!!

This hotel is in a normal small town, and is therefore totally unexpected. It is quiet and refined and totally classy. Our room (actually a living room plus bedroom plus bathroom) was beautiful and spacious and very tastefully decorated. Dinner and breakfast were both served in the open air. And the pre dinner wine tasting session downstairs was really wonderful. The service too was excellent.

Room Tip: We stayed in Levante 3 on the first floor. We saw other rooms and they all looked really good!!
