I booked the Su Marmuri for the simple reason that is was the only affordable place I found on the web in Sardinia in high season one month before. The downside is its location, perhaps, as it is at least 30 minutes from the beach. But there are sights to see nearby, hiking, waterfalls( not in summer) and no restaurants except an excellent pizzeria.
We arrived in late afternoon and lo and behold the owner's wife did not notice that the people had not checked out of our room. We kept our calm and they proposed the owner's mom's apartment at 300 yards down the road . It turned out to be a super deal. The next two nights were at the hotel proper. Ok, the cable tv decoder had been stolen from our room along with the remote control and poor Tonino was lost. No big deal, but a shame for what he had to pay for the system no doubt. And the only pizzeria in town has but two tables, and a long wait at 8:30 so Tonino served us his local Cannonau and announced "self-service," sat and shot the s... with us outside, correcting our serviceable Italian. The next morning he took us on a one hour excursion to a nuraghe in HIS car that was unforgettable! No charge. The public caves SU MARMURI in Ulassai are well worth seeing. Eat lunch there. Do not eat in the only other restaurant nearby called Da Concetta in Jerzu as it was really bad, if vaunted as authentic.
