Hotels in the same category, even in the same resort, can vary considerably in character, ambience, service and facilities and may not offer the same staffing levels and facilities, or be as well maintained. it must be bourne in mind that cost is a good indication of standards, particulary when comparing hotels in the same star rating.

"Sadly, we have reached the last day of our holiday at the Is Benas Country Lodge, it has been wonderful! From the moment we booked our holiday, Sardaturs' friendly and professional administration made the whole package more personal and free of any stress one feels when booking with a larger company. The Is Benas Country Lodge has proved to be a perfect hideaway delivering on all levels, be it food, comfort and wonderful staff! We wish you continued success and hope to use your services for future holidays. Hurrah to Sardatur Holidays! " Beverley - June 2016
"Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed Sardinia and the Is Benas hotel. It was a super experience made wonderful by the staff at Is Benas - what a lovely team of people they are...I am sure one day we will return to such a lovely island." Allan - September 2015
'Check in and all travel very smooth ( holiday agent was Satardur Holidays). All facilities in the hotel are good quality with breakfast and dinner taken outside (weather permitting). Our room was well equipped, bathroom with rain shower and whirlpool bath. Nice patio area with quality furniture , very private All of the hotel staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough. Given there are only 18 rooms you get to know the other guests and this was one of the highlights of staying at Is Benas Lodge.he chef (Carlo) only uses local produce and much of it from their own garden. All of the cooking was of high quality with delicate flavours. The food was very much an experience and you will find yourself eating things probably never tried before. We took part in the pasta making course which involved sampling three different pasta dishes ( with wine!) all delicious and a great experience. Summary, excellent experience, great food , good location and lovely facilities. The people in the hotel and Sardinia are incredible. The island, especially this region is very unspoilt with beautiful scenery. Highly recommended ( this was my third visit to Sardinia).' D. - September 2015
'We found Is Benas to be a perfect place for a relaxing week's break. The chef and waiting staff were able to accommodate a food allergy and I was even given my own personal printed menu each evening! The staff were always polite and helpful, our room was kept spotless and the grounds were beautifully kept. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice - we loved the fruit straight from the garden.' E. - August 2015
'We had a lovely relaxing week at Is Benas Country Lodge. Beautiful setting, excellent service and amazing food. The staff are all wonderful but special thanks to Alessandro, Marco and Carlo. We would highly recommend a visit to Is Benas.' Pauline - July 2015
'We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Is Benas. The food was superb, the service excellent, the surroundings beautiful, and the room comfortable and well equipped. Special mention must be made of the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, especially Alessandro, the Maître D. Nothing was too much trouble, and each guest was treated like a VIP. We could not fault the entire experience and cannot wait to return for another week at some point in the future.' Timothy - July 2015
