For a break with family or as a couple this was a lovely hotel, we could not fault it.
Beautiful beaches within 10 mins drive, Oroesi itself was not that special but we found some nice restaurants and used the hotel as a base to explore.

We had a great time here. A nice spacious room and bathroom, large bed, we got upgraded to a sea view. The main thing that amazed me was the value for money we experienced. For a 4 star hotel at the rates we got I was really impressed.
The only things that I'd mark the hotel down on are the distance to the beach (it's a 20 minute walk up a hill back from the beach - which is fine at first but by the end of the holiday was a bit of a drag) and the breakfast (and breakfast staff) which was fairly average.
But I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I thought it was great.
" We loved this hotel. Its exactly what it says it "
This hotel is a great place to base yourself for a more quiet type of holiday, a car is required and really makes a great difference. The small town od Orosei is great and evening in different restaurant's was great. The hotel staff could not do enough to make our stay a great experience. 10 out 10 well done.

Nice and comfortable hotel, very friendly staff. Good location for starting a trips, a litle far the city center (but it does not mather). nice view, free parking and wifi.
Breakfast is not a good choice, you have to stay early morning - later you will be out of salami, cup, water, egg ... The staff do not manage to clean a table from previous guests.
The Santa Maria Resort is perfect if you want a relaxing break away from the stresses of modern work life.
You awake to the sound of birds singing, no traffic noise or pollusion and you are surrounded by nature.
The resort itself is lovely, very family orientated, we were there for two weeks and nothing was too much trouble for the Staff, who were so hard working and attended to all our needs, nothing was a bother for them.
The Hotel is situated ouside of the main town of Orosei, so transport is required, we walked into town in daytime but at night it is too dark and unlit to walk, so a taxi back at the very least, which we did and was an eye popping experience, as the staff called it a Ferrari but in truth it was a glorifed Golf Buggy, but great fun all the same!

Our room was 310 - views over the supermarket but it was really quiet at night. Self catering facilities and in the room were adequate and great if you really wanted to save money but we did not use them. We had a balcony with table and chairs. The bed was really firm (my only complaint) air con was available to control the temperature in the apartment. Everything was spotlessly clean and the staff were really helpful. Car park opposite, near the town and beaches a short drive away. Lovely restaurants and bars nearby.
Breakfast was what you'd expect in a budget European hotel and as it was included we took advantage every day, but it did get boring after a week.
Would recommend to families on a budget.
If you're looking for an authentic little B&B bursting with personality then look no further.
We were met with a friendly warm welcome and had our bags collected from our car by the hotel golf buggy as there is no parking at the hotel but can be found close by.
We were lucky enough to have a room in the main courtyard in the main house which I would request if possible as the hotel is spread over 3 different properties dotted around Orosei. The room was exactly as it looked in the pictures!
Although the property is a few kilometres from the beach you can use the hotel bikes (free) to get to the beach.
They provide sun beds and umbrellas on the beach which are also free!
The continental breakfast was fresh and plentiful and you can order fresh coffee and tea.
All in all this is a little Beauty which offers excellent value for money! I'd highly recommend it.

Pocket Guide: Costa Smeralda Gulf of Orosei Hotels
This is perhaps the most spectacular gulf on the whole island. Framed by towering cliffs, indented with countless coves, clear, emerald green waters lap long, sandy beaches. In the north, Orosei lies among lush citrus and olive groves. The central Piazza del Popolo is ringed with splendid buildings, including the white-stuccoed church of San Giacomo. Marina di Orosei beach is a long crescent of golden sands fringed by fragrant pines.
