Hotel Scintilla has all of the basics but is lacking in some particular areas. Beware if you're staying in San Teodoro for the night life (or particularly Sun and Bass). The hotel is very basic, the wifi oscillates between frustrating and non-existent. The water from the taps smells badly of rust and we wouldn't drink it (made worse by the... More

After reading good reviews we finally chose this hotel despite it not having air condition. How this place gets good reviews is beyond my understanding. Nothing, and I mean nothing is good about this hotel! First of all this is NOT a hotel. This is barely B&B. And most definitely it is not 3 star. One of our main criteria... More

Waouw! I chose this hotel because I wanted one near the beach and it's almost ON the beach, La Cinta Beach! It's a family run hotel, and they are really welcoming. It's Sardinian way: cool, respectful, … wonderful! The breakfast is common but very good (croissant, cakes, ham, salami and cheese, fruit juices, coffee or tea, …). And it's only... More

Scintilla has an unbeatable location right next to the stunning beach La Cinta, the center of San Teodoro is a pleasant 10 min walk away. The hotel itself is a very nice looking building with pleasant green territory. Rooms are very basic, but spacious and very clean with sufficient closet space. The bathroom was very large and functional. Towels changed... More

This is a nice hotel right next to one of the nicest beaches in the area, which is perfect for someone like me who is partial to a couple of beers down at the beach!

Our experience at Hotel Scintilla was unforgettable. The hotel is beautiful, well maintained, and a minute walk to the nicest beach in Sardinia. The proprietor, Pierre Gradzciano and his family were very hospitable and made us feel like we were family. We shared many laughs and drinks, not to mention the most delicious cheese and wine on the planet. Even... More
