Just chill'in waiting to get to ...

We are catching our first flight tomorrow morning at 7:40am (so 2:40am at home) and will land in Halifax very late tomorrow night. Keep your fingers crossed for us that our luggage won't be overweight!! Luckily they have a scale in the lobby of our hotel, so we can check ahead of time.
Wish us luck on smooth travels and I'll see everyone when I get home :)
... colors. We arrived expecting to see a beautifully landscaped park but it was actually rather natural with long ponds and trails winding through. No fountains or gardens to see but for me this was a lot of fun. I loved exploring the park and finding different creatures from the birds flying over head (luckily nowhere near me) and the fish swimming down the creeks. I was slightly disappointed by the flamingoes, maybe they are just gone for the winter but there were only about ...
... We took the bus number PQ to lungomare poetto (the beach) which was very pretty although a bit dirty. There were plenty of windsurfers out in the sea enjoying the wind... At least someone was!! The flamingos are in the saline lakes of parco molentargius. They call salt the white gold and because of this salty water a lot of animals are attracted there specifically the pink flamingos which ...
We arrived a little before 1:00 p.m. today. This is the first time the World has been to Cagliari and we were greeted by musicians and dancing along with a tasting of local drinks such as Mirto a strong sweet red wine and limoncello. We walked straight uphill into the old town called the Castello surrounded by walls still today. We walked to the top and entered thru the gate near the Archeological Museum and then walked down the narrow streets to Via Santa ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pullman Timi Ama Sardegna Villasimius
Just back from a weeks stay in the Sofitel and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We were upgraded on arrival to a sea view room and shown to what was a very comfortable room which is air conditioned all day and night if you wish. Lovely big bed, nice bathroom, and spacey, all you'd really want for the room. Also nice big balcony with lovely views (see pics)
We picked up a good deal on lastminute for this place, and it was still the most expensive place we stayed. However, it was also the most luxurious that we found in Sardinia, and a very pleasant stay. Unlike previous reviewers we found the pool to be a pleasnt temperature, although it was a very hot week when we were there. The beach is lovely, with clear shallow waters and very soft sand.
Great location for relaxing
Just back from 1 week stay at Sofitel. Read all of the reviews before we went so am pleased to say agree with most. We were not disappointed - the hotel is fantastic for relaxing with just the right amount of activity if you want it. Without a doubt the best buffet we have ever come across- sea food in particular was fantastic , oysters, mussels and lobster on more than one night.
We spent most of our time on the beach which is one of the best we have been to in Europe and with the temperature in the 30's the breeze was welcoming.
There is not much to do in the area and most of the visitors appear to go for just a beach holiday . So if thats what your looking for plus a bit of luxury then this is the place for it.
We have just returned from one week in the Sofitel Thalassa Timi Ama in Villasimius.
The location of this place makes it really hard to find especially when you arrive at night. The hotel is located at the end of a dirt road with poorly marked signs along the way. We felt like we were in the Great Race and needed clue markers to find this place. The room was average size but the bed was really, really great. The ocean view room that is advertised is really a sea view in the far distance. The hotel pool is NOT heated and it was REALLY COLD - it was not used by anyone when the hotel was totally full. The food at this place was good - lots of different choices for both breakfast and dinner. One night sea food was featured and included fresh fish and giant prawns. We stayed here four days which may be a bit much since it was on the cooler side and not much to do in the area. This hotel caters to the masses and I would stay in a smaller hotel in the future where I can get more personalized service.
This resort was recommended by our travel agent in Australia. Initially we were shocked at the cost, but with a family of 4, 2 rooms and 2 fabulous meals a day it was worth every cent. We had been travelling around Spain and Italy for 4 weeks already and this was our place of leisure before flying home. Excellent choice! Rooms were very clean and spacious. Great showers, bath also. Service was first class at reception, activities desk, sports bar, restaurants and pool bar. Beach was superb, clean, warm water and no shortage of lounge chairs. Pool is huge and unheated, but certainly refreshes you! Tennis courts are very good and no problem getting a court. Food was unbelievable in quality, range and quantity. We highly recommend a stay of at least 4 nights and just laze at the resort. Getting there from airport is very expensive at 85 euro each way. We will return.
LOCATION: Stunning. Hills in the background. Beautiful pool and palms in the foreground.
We had high expectations of the Sofitel Thalassa Timi Ama (not least because of the reviews we had seen on Tripadvisor!), and we were not disappointed. I was wary when my wife became wistful for some Mediterranean sun and sea after our rather disappointing experience in Mexico in January (see my report on the Quinta Real, Puerto Vallarta). Our needs are simple enough - good service, pleasant surroundings, good food and a clean, comfortable and quiet room. And they were surely met at this resort.
Nice place and excellent service and food
I stayed in august and even if the month is very crowded, the hotel managed to keep quality standards very high. The hotel setting is nice, close to the beach which is beautiful. Rooms are spacious and level of service is what you expect from a 4 stars hotel. What was really valuable was the food: lot of choice, high quallity and variety. Sardinia in august is very expensive, but the money was well spent.
This hotel was fantastic. Beautiful island stunning scenery, hired a car, fantastic beaches all around, food was definately 5*, you could have anything oysters my favourite. Got upgraded to a suite which was huge, The spa facilties were great, they do a superb massage.
