... that they cancelled the rest of the trains for the night. We had already bought our tickets so I was really annoyed we wasted that money but luckily there were some taxis out front. We got to our flight on time and back safely and soundly to our apartment. I mention this because our taxi driver in Rome was crazy and I thought we were going to die multiple times throughout the trip. The driving here in so aggressive and fast down narrow winding streets its enough to give anyone ...

The plan for tomorrow is a short flight to Milan, followed by a train ride to Trieste in northeastern Italy. Let's hope this train journey works out better than the last one.
As for Sardinia, it will definitely be missed. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cruccuris Resort Villasimius
Cruccuris - posto tranquillo di livello superiore per una breve vacanza
Ci sono stato per una settimana a agosto 2006. Un albergo perfetto per un po' di riposo e relax, e per esplorare spiagge e ristoranti locali. Come altri utenti hanno scritto, l'albergo è costruito e arredato ad alti livelli (più 4 che 3 stelle), la colazione è molto buona e il personale disponibile. Ho prenotato direttamente presso di loro - ero già stato in Sardegna prima e sapevo quel che facevo e dove volevo andare. È stato un semplice scambio di email e ha funzionato bene. Se vi piacciono pace e quiete, un personale non invadente e un posto per stare per esplorare la zona, allora raccomando il Cruccuris.
Lovely hillside hotel
We rented a car and toured Sardinia.
Arrived in Villasimius and tried Hotel Stella Maris but no
rooms there and they advised us the Cruccuris which is their
sisterhotel on the hill. The hotel had just opened and is
lowrise, blends in with the landscape colourwise and the service
was very friendly. The rooms large and comfortable.
You need a car to go to the beach and village.
I would stay here again. A very good place for the individual
traveller who likes comfort and peace.
Ein herrliches Hotel am Hang
Wir hatten ein Auto gemietet und fuhren damit durch Sardinien.
Als wir in Villasimius ankamen, versuchten wir erst das Hotel Stella Maris, aber dort waren keine Zimmer frei. Man empfahl uns, es beim Cruccuris Resort, dem Schwesterhotel am Hang zu probieren. Das Hotel war gerade erst geöffnet worden und flach gebaut, fügt sich farblich in die Landschaft ein und der Service war sehr freundlich. Die Zimmer sind groß und gemütlich.
Um zum Strand und zum Ort zu kommen, braucht man ein Auto.
Ich würde hier wieder übernachten. Ein sehr gutes Hotel für Individualtouristen, die Komfort und Ruhe genießen möchten.
Bellissimo hotel in collina
Abbiamo noleggiato un'auto e girato la Sardegna.
Siamo arrivati a Villasimius e abbiamo provato ad entrare all'Hotel Stella Maris ma non c'erano camere disponibili e ci hanno consigliato il Cruccuris che era gemellato con loro e si trovava sulla collina. L'hotel aveva appena aperto, era circondato da panorami splendidi e il servizio era molto cordiale. Le camere erano grandi e comode.
E' necessaria una macchina per recarsi alla spiaggia e al villaggio.
Ci tornerò. E' un bel posto per i singoli viaggiatori che amano la comodità e la pace.
Cruccuris - upmarket peaceful hotel for R&R
Stayed here for a week in August 2006. A perfect hotel for rest & relaxation, and for exploring the local beaches and restaurants.
Like the other reviewers have said, the hotel is built and furnished to a very high standard (more like 4* than 3*), breakfast is very good, the pool area and sunloungers are very nice and staff helpful.
I booked directly with them - I had been to Sardinia before and knew what I was doing & where I wanted to go. It was a simple exchange of emails, and worked well.
If you like peace and quiet, unobtrusive staff and a place to stay so you can explore the area, then I would recommend Cruccuris.
Magnificent small resort tucked in the hills a couple of miles from the beaches. Perfect as long as 1) you have your own means of transport and 2) you prefer to dine out (as there's plainly no restaurant). In fact, it's one of the relatively few hotels that do not constrain you to half board, a luxury in a great cuisine area like Sardinia.
Lovely hotel, lovely location. Perfect.
We stayed here at the beginning of June and had a most special visit. We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time at this charming resort and city. We flew into Alghero, and drove down to Villasimus. The hotel itself is not actually on the beach, which we were kind of disappointed about, but the pools were so nice. The hotel was very quiet during our stay, but the staff were more than welcoming. The bartender was so friendly and we really enjoyed spending some time at the bar after dinner. The rooms are very spacious, and the balcony facing the ocean and the pools was spectacular! The bathroom was also large, and the whole room was incredibly clean. The breakfast was very good. A few glitches- it was advertised that there was a shuttle to the beach, but in fact there was not. This hotel shares a restaurant with Stella Maris hotel across the bay, but it closed at 9 p.m. (we were kind of looking forward to a late night dinner). So we took a taxi into the city (which cost 20Euros for a 4 minute ride!!) Overall, we would highly recommend this hotel and the whole visit to Sardinia.
My husband and I have just come back from 6 nights at the Cruccuris Resort and couldn't have wished for a more relaxing, friendly hotel to stay in. The hotel is very clean, airy and the rooms are very spacious with a sizeable balcony. Despite this being the hotel's first full season there was no evidence of teething issues, everything seems to be running very smoothly!
