Sant'Elmo Beach Hotel - Blu Hotels
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Castiadas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 23, 2012

.... Not a great hotel. Even for people who love Club Med.... Not a great hotel. There is a free shuttle bringing you at night to Vilasimius... ( yeah) But the rooms are small and old, the pool is ok ( if you love children... From other people crying all the time) , the food ( with a pre paid card system or all inclusive) is cold and poor quality. There is a guy singing on a piano all night, but he would not make it through the first round of xfactor. The beach is proberbly the only not beautiful beach in sardegna ( and has "Napoli problems" with the waist). Just go here if you really dont know where to go, or if you are 15 and its your first time without parents.

The Sant'Elmo Beach is definitely a very nice hotel in itself : comfortable, very nicely designed and particularly well situated with a beautiful beach.
We had an absolutely wonderful holiday last year. So, we came back this year, but unfortunately it was a HUGE disappointment !
The company managing the hotel is -very sadly- a new one ("Tivigest", having replaced "Hotel Philosophy"), and have made it a different hotel now. ALL meals including breakfasts and dinners are now taken inside a closed dining room with air conditioning, instead of outside on the lovely terrace, warm and full of nice perfumes, as was the case last year. What a shame !
And this year, you have a public address system on the beach, diffusing music for aquatic gymnastics in the sea and for the "Happy Hour" bar at 5PM. How can they do that on such a lovely beach ?
That is so sad and frustrating to see what was just a perfect place being now spoilt by those changes.
Food is reasonably good, although less varied and altogether under par compared to last year.
The staff is efficient, although the wonderful atmosphere we felt last year, with everyone being so friendly and simply looking happy, is no more there.
In absolute terms, the Sant Elmo'Beach is not a bad place if you fancy dining with air conditioning when you have 28° outside, and if you like to hear music on the beach. But if you have known it before, you can only be disappointed. Either way, it does not deserves any more IMHO its four stars rating.

We booked a week at this hotel in early June through Sardatur Holidays for a family holiday with young kids. It was marred by having no hot water for 6 nights, barely functioning air con and food that was bland at best but at times totally unacceptable given the hotel's 4* rating (frozen pizza sqaures in Sardinia!). The hotel ownership had recenlty changed and had opened just two days before our arrival. It felt unprepared for guests and even the new management team freely admitted there were many problems that needed ironing out. Perhaps in time, things will improve. The location is beautiful and the beach and pool ideal for families. If you are thinking of booking through Sardatur Holidays our advice is don't. They have not responded to a single email or addressed any of our concerns.
