I spent two nights at S'Astore in the middle of August 2014. Like most of the Costa Smerelda, the hotel is set-up for holiday makers and couples on romantic get-a-ways. The views of the mountains and coast are fantastic! The breakfast room/restaurant has a panoramic view that shouldn't be missed.
I was staying at S'Astore because it was close to where I was having a business meeting. I wasn't surprised that the rooms weren't set-up for business (i.e. no desk) but I was surprised that there was no WiFi signal in the room. WiFi is only provided in the public areas (restaurant, lobby, pool area). The room I had (#3) was pretty basic but clean an functional. It had a nice private deck with two chaise lounges and two wicker chairs. From what I understand, the main portion of the hotel is going to be renovated before next summer.
I took a long walk from the hotel to the Golfo Aranci but this requires a walking on fairly dangerous stretch along the main road. There really isn't anywhere you can walk from the hotel so you'll definitely need a car.
Breakfast is included in the room rate and it's okay. However, the dinner menu is excellent (especially the seafood and the specialty pasta dishes).

Very impressed with this gem of a country retreat. After two weeks of travelling throughout Sardinia we were hoping to find exactly the kind of more quiet and serene ambience this fine establishment provides. Management and staff provide superb service and the rooms are spacious, spotless and well designed for comfort and relaxing. The restaurant provides a wonderful menu with daily specials and a fine selection of wines. The waiter ( in his 70s ) was the best I would rate of those in the five resorts we stayed at over the three weeks we spent on the island. Highly recommend.
