Built in 1978, the Lu Nibareddu is not a standard hotel but a residence consisting of rented apartments spread out over a vast property and overlooking the surrounding area. As a result, guests can be completely independent, and are sure to appreciate the fact they are not packed in like sardines. However, you soon realize that the general level of maintenance of the facilities and the complex as a whole leaves much to be desired. For example, the apartments are positioned in the middle of a lush garden that is so overgrown, you might wonder - and with reason - whether the gardener himself has packed up and gone on holiday! All that we can really say is that the ambience and pace of life here are pretty laidback and relaxed. You are left to get on with your own thing at the Lu Nibareddu, where nothing disturbs the peace and quiet of the surroundings, with mountains stretching away until they drop down into the unbelievably beautiful turquoise sea. It is a sight you will not tire of, especially as 90% of the rooms have views of the sea, making it easy to forgive the rather outdated facilities. You can even go one better if you book into one of the apartments next to the beach, a 20 minute walk from the main property. Of course, if you stay at the main complex, you will be some distance from the beach, and will either have to walk or take the shuttle, the latter shortening the journey time to 5 minutes. This option might be an especially good idea on your way back to the complex, as the walk up the gentle slope from the sea can be quite tiring. At the same time, you cannot help but appreciate the size of the property and the beautiful walks that drive home the fact you are truly on holiday.
