“A great place to just relax!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Just back from a week at the Hotel Mariposas and i have to say everything in previous reviews are correct. This is a fantastic small hotel where the friendly staff make all the difference! My wife and I were looking for a quiet week to do nothing but relax (didn't even want a car). This hotel met all expectations and then some. We had room 207 which had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and gardens with the sea (and the redundant building site) beyond. The breakfasts were lovely and the lunchtime snacks and salads were also very nice. The location is great as it was only a 10 minute walk into Villasimius and the beach was 5 mins walk in the opposite direction. Pretty quiet now as it is the end of the season but that meant empty beaches and little traffic noise. The pool area and gardens are lovely as is the terrace seating area. The only problem was the mosquito bites but a quick trip to the local pharmacy sorted that.

The best part of all was the staff who work tirelessly to make your stay as relaxed as possible. Nothing is too much trouble and many thanks to Roberto for all your help and advice. Their friendly, smiling attitudes were the best stress buster i have found! Will definitely go back and recommend to other friends and family.

Room Tip: Our room was big enough for two adults and a child (or even three adults) and had a large and sunny...

This little hotel is just great. Perfect location between the town of Villasimius and the beach!
The hotel is very clean and the hotel grounds with the swimming pool are just magnificent!
Very friendly staff, especially Ricardo is very charmful!
The breakfast selections are just very tasty and fresh. Especially the scrambled eggs and bacon are recommended!
The rooms are not over-luxury but they are very clean and offer all what you need: beautiful views into the garden and swimming pool with the sea at the far background, minibar, airconditioning, safe, hairdryer, ...
To be recommended for sure and will be back!

Trust all the wonderful reviews and go to this hotel, you won't be disappointed! It is beautifully maintained, the rooms are very well appointed and include a fridge, safety deposit box and air con (but sadly no kettle.) The staff couldn't be nicer and are always happy to help. While we were there it was my Mum's birthday and at breakfast they presented her with a lovely vase full of flowers from their beautiful garden. The hotel is ideally situated between the beach and the town, the beach is about a 5 minute walk, and town is about 10 minutes (which my Mum easily managed every day, and she was 77 whilst we were there.) It isn't often that a place lives up to its rave reviews but this one does.

Room Tip: We had a 'family room', which gave us a large sized double room (double and single bed) , an...

What makes this special as others have said is the very helpful advice and welcome from this family team (Roberto, Ricardo, the father and others). The rooms were perfect, breakfast (and staff) sweet, pool inviting (though we did not go in preferring to motor off to a range of little bays - some on Ricardo's Google Earth advice).

We had a seaview room for the first two nights (though, not thier fault, there is an ugly building site in between) and then had to move to one which was not but in fact enjoyed it just as much as had shady balcony but sun in the evening with a lovely mountain view. On the last 2 nights there was either a lively disco (or was in a rave) in some sort of Tanka Village nearby, until 2am - but if you shut the doors and turned the AC on, there was little disturbance!

Most restaurants - some 15 minutes walk away - are un-pretentious and modestly priced. We did not actually go a bomb on Stella D'Oro which comes up as best reviewed mainly as we had to wait so long for service but perhaps were unlucky that night. Surprisingly our best meal was a home made lasagne at the restaurant on the beach - looks a bit 'commercial' but we did well.

Room Tip: All good - but for differenet reasons - see above

Arrived back in the UK after a week stay with Roberto, Ricardo and the rest of the lovely staff at Hotel Mariposas. The location is superb, ideally located halfway between the main town and the beach. The whole place was excellently maintained, flowers were beautiful and the pool area was a really nice place to relax.

The staff were very outgoing and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were given great recommendations for food of which we managed to try 4 of the 6 restaurants suggested.

Breakfast was always top notch and I will miss the eggs - always perfect (should have got the recipe before we left as I've never been able to get my scrambled eggs tasting that good!)

One suggestion may be to have a welcome pack in the room with all the hotel info but this is easily obtained, it's just we were very tired when we arrived so didn't ask the right questions at the right times!

Thank you all for a very relaxing and enjoyable first trip to Sardinia - we will be back.

Well situated in villasimius 5 mins to the local beach or 15 mins to the town centre. The hotel is excellent because of the staff who are all very friendly, in particular Roberto who gave us great recommendations for local beaches and restaurants. A visit to Porto Ruix beach is a must. Breakfast very good served on a sunny terrace looking out to sea. Rooms a good size and well decorated All in all a lovely small family run hotel.

When I required a hotel close to Cagilari for a weeks holiday I stumbled across Hotel Mariposas with excellent reviews. After reading many reviews I was filled with trepidation to the authentication of them. Fear not they are all total authentic and perhaps don't do this establishment owners and staff justice. The hotels position is perfect between beach and town nestled in perfect gardens with beautiful views of the sea from the rooms balconies. The hotel is immaculate in cleanliness staff are attentive to all detail and helpful to a fault nothing is too much trouble. A excellent breakfast is provided over a three hour period each morning where you can sit and look over the garden with swimming pool to the sea.
Wifi is available at every point in the establishment and garden. Certainly intend to return very soon.
