We came mid September so it was a lot quieter. Reception staff are friendly.
We were going to get a taxi from the airport (Alghero) to the hotel but the cost of the taxi (approx 75 euros each way) was the same as hiring a car so we decided to get a car instead. However reception were very helpful in booking a taxi for us initially. Our flight to Alghero was delayed, and once we landed we called the hotel as we knew check in closed at 11pm and we weren't due to arrive until about 11.30pm. The receptionist Simona very kindly waited for us to arrive at the hotel, excellent customer service.
The drive from the airport to the hotel is easy. Good roads, majority are well lit. And I'm very glad we hired a car as we really enjoyed the freedom.
Breakfast at the hotel is very good, great coffee. The rooms are very nice, we paid extra for a sea view which to be honest probably wasn't worth it as we were on the ground floor and you sort of had to stand on your toes to look at the sea. Our little balcony didn't get any sun either.
Stintino town itself isn't great. Its about a 15 min walk to the town from the hotel. It's pretty but there isn't anything to do other than go to the beaches. We walked round the town on our first night and saw everything there was to see. There wasn't really much life in Stintino centre, was really quiet. Also we had quite bad weather when we were there so the car was vital for us! The internet was touch and go. Occasionally worked in our room. We played tennis once (costs 5 euros for an hour with rackets and balls) at the hotel next door which was fun.
To be honest, I think the hotels website is quite misleading. It says the hotel has two pools and tennis courts.. firstly, yes there are two pools but they're adjoined and one is shallow and for children. Secondly, both the pool(s) and tennis courts belong to the neighbouring hotel, which you can use but you have to walk out the hotel and onto the main road to get there.
We actually checked out early and booked a hotel in Alghero as we craved a bit of life. If you're looking for total peace and quiet then this is the place for you, but sadly it wasn't right for us.
