We spent a couple of days in Santa Maria Navarrese (SMN) just before Easter. Whilst the village itself was not really ready for tourists (most restaurants were closed) and the weather was not the best (low cloud precluded visits to the mountains), Hotel Nascar more than made up for these shortcomings.

We travel quite a lot for leisure and never have we experienced such a genuine, friendly welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for Pierre, Claudia and Claudia's sister. They literaly went out of their way to help us make the most of our time in SMN, phoning 'round contacts to find us a boat trip (in the end the weather put paid to this idea), calling a restaurant to make sure that they would stay open when we arrived back in the vllage after normal lunch service had finished, and Pierre calling one of his archeologist colleagues to keep open one of the many Nuraghi for us to visit. This gives you an idea. However, the defining moment was when we decided to take the walk to Pedro Lungo (definitely recommended for wild mountain and coastal scenery). To avoid potential misunderstandings, Claudia's sister DROVE us to the starting point of the walk on the other side of the village - we would have struggled to find it otherwise! Definitely service beyond the call of duty....

Although Pierre speaks excellent English, few other people in SMN seemed to speak much English, so it is worth having some basic Italian skills to help you get by. I expect that during the season this would be less of a problem of course.

The hotel itself is immaculately kept. If we had a complaint it was a lack of heating in the bathroom and the time it took for water to heat (which Claudia did warn us about), but of course this would be less of an issue during the main season.

Pierre told us that he is trying to encourage his contacts to extend the season in SMN - more places need to open earlier in the year. He certainly deserves more business, and I hope that this review will encourage more people to stay at Hotel Nascar.

Nascar Hotel is one of the most lovely places I ever stayed at, and run by definitely the kindest, most helpful and passionate people I can imagine. Every room has a different theme and has been designed with a fine touch for detail. The food, mostly homemade and grown, is incredible. The owners Claudia and Pierre will set you up with their network of contacts who run trekkings, culinary experiences with shepherds in the mountains, pescatourismo, winetasting, archeological trips etc. Claudia's sister Loretta runs a beautiful boat, for small groups up to twelve people, for daytrips to the calas, which can only be reached by boat and of course, the best food and wine is served for lunch. It is almost impossible to leave and say goodbye.

Poor value for what it is. Little outside space, no pool, restaurant OK to good but ac didnt work and they didnt seem that concerned about it. Santa Maria quite nice but not exceptional. Over-priced now for what it is.

We spent only 2 days of our vacation in this hotel, but these 2 days contribute 90% to our impressions from Sardinia. We initially stayed in big dull 4 star in Cagliari area and were stunned by difference in quality and service when moved to this small and cozy hotel in S. Maria Navarrese.

Pros:
- first and foremost: absolutely fantastic staff - friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. Stefania and team - thank you!
- Excellent rooms - comfortable and stylish.
- Location. Good beach close to the hotel - no need to drive to spend the day by the sea. Lots of things to see - caves, rocks, small beaches. Amazing scenery from the boat.
- Good food.
- Excellent night bar in open air - good music, cozy atmosphere

Cons:
- little noisy
- no internet access

Overall: we absolutely loved this hotel, and can recommend it to anybody planning to spend holidays in Sardinia.
