Hotel Costa Dei Fiori is the ideal choice for an easy-going and relaxed holiday. Basing yourself here on Southern Sardinia's beautiful coast in Santa Margherita di Pula, you'll be surrounded by nature. The hotel's set in tropical, palm filled, gardens that edge the sea. There's enough space for it to feel quiet and private. The three pool areas are lovely - our favourite has to be the infinity pool that looks out over the clear blue sea. The main pool at the centre of the resort is nice too - treat yourself to a refreshing fruit smoothie from the bar while you relax beside it on a comfy sun lounger. If you're travelling with your little ones, the shallow kid's pool is just beside a nice grassy area - perfect for playing.
The rooms are in traditional Sardinian villas, dotted about the gardens. They're simple and spacious, decorated in crisp whites and blues, with cool tiled floors and artisan, hand crafted wooden furniture - it all feels very typically Sardinian. If you can, upgrade to on of the superior rooms - they have their own private patio or a terrace - lovely for sitting out in the evenings. If you choose to upgrade to half board or fancy dinner at the hotel, you'll dine at the restaurant beside the pool. The food is excellent - we'd definitely recommend attending the Sardinian dinner they hold once a week!
You'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to sandy beaches. The Sardinian coast is renowned for its beautiful white sand and Chia Bay, only a short drive away, won't disappoint. The hotel even run a shuttle service to get you there (payable locally). We do recommend hiring a car while you're here though, as there is so much to see in the surrounding area. Like the medieval monuments of Cagliari, the archaeological park at Nora and the natural grottos of Santadi - it's nice to have the freedom to see it all at your own pace.
Car hire is recommended for this hotel. Hotel Costa Dei Fiori is approx. 1 hour from Cagliari airport.
