Tomorrow morning at 7:30 am, we will be able to see land! Today, we did an early morning yoga class, lounged and sunbathed by the pool, ate lunch at the Mexican Cantina, did a stretch and relax class, ate a relaxing formal dinner and watched a show in the theater. Just chill'in waiting to get to ...
Well, our trip has come and gone and now we are in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy, waiting for our flights home tomorrow. We opted to stay in an American chain hotel near the airport, so there's not much for us to do today. We plan to just rest up and pack as we've got about 24 hours of travelling to do before we get home tomorrow night.
Photos from the last half of our trip will be added to the entires once I get ...
... was weird since we hadn't seen any people and decided to pursue the wild animal and try to make friends with it. I was pleasantly surprised to find 3 puppies around the corner! They were so adorable one was fluffy and tan and the other two were a pretty brown. It was really a dream come true to be at a castle and see puppies. What more could a girl ask for? The dogs had pans of food and water but I'm not sure if they were strays that someone was taking care of or maybe ...
... 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 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.
Soooo nice, relaxing and comfortable
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.
4 stars would perfectly describe this place (it's actually 3). Quiet rooms, immaculately clean, reasonably spacious and well appointed. The common areas are gorgeous - gardens, 2 pool areas and Sardinian style lounges and verandas. The breakfast buffet area by the pool is also such a great start to the day - and the breakfast food is quite all right. Staff are not intrusive and kind. If I need to be picky, the young ladies I interacted with did not appear exceptionally knowledgeable in terms of things to do and restaurants to visit; nevertheless I cannot see how anybody could be disappointed with this hotel - considering the price which is not cheap, but certainly within reason for the area.
Lovely hotel, lovely location. Perfect.
Lovely hotel, lovely location. Perfect.
This hotel was fantastic. It is in a lovely location, set off the main road that leads to Villasimius centre a few minutes drive away (you need a car - don't worry there's no traffic noise at night). The hotel is very very relaxing, we were there mid August and it was very quiet. You need a car due to the location, but don't let that put you off, we were so happy we stayed at this hotel and not in one right by the beach as there is no reason to go to any one beach more than once! We went to at least one different one every day, there are just loads of beautiful bays to discover, some practically empty, just look for them when you are driving here from the airport (you may need to climb through a few bushes/rocks to get to the smaller beaches but well worth it. The staff were very friendly, very helpful and very welcoming. The rooms are great, air conditioned, big bathroom etc, why does anyone need anymore! The 2 pools (and attached jacuzzi!) are lovely (but please check out the beaches!). Breakfast was great, croissants, fruit, cereal etc. You can also buy lunch between 12 and 4pm - a very lovely buffet. Eating out in the evening varies from place to place (prices that is, it all tastes great). Check out the pizzera (Max on Via Roma), about 7 euro for a whopper of a pizza!). We would definately be returning to this hotel in the future. Many thanks to the staff who made it a wonderful stay!
Also, don't just go to the main beach (Simius) - find the smaller ones (Porta Sa Ruxi and so on - just drive along the coastal road towards Cagliari and you won't miss them!)
ps - we booked through expedia, very easy!
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.
A great little resort!
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!
There are 2 swimming pools, both having plenty of room to sit around. The pool area is very relaxing and has great views overlooking the surrounding area and the coast line. The large pool is approximately 25metres in length so plenty big enough for laps if you like. It doesn't however have a shallow end that's geared towards children (I'm not sure about the smaller pool as didn't go into it).
I would definitely recommend hiring a car if you're staying at this resort as I don't think there's much public transport available. The nearest beach will be about a 15-20 minute walk away. Villasimius is approximately a 5 minute drive away.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Cruccuris Resort for your holiday - we had a great time there!
