This hotel has a beautiful location by the sea, small but clean rooms and a nice breakfast. I found some of the staff helpful, but in general the staff were a little more stand offish than elsewhere in Europe. Arriving back at the hotel late (but before midnight) one evening I found that the owner (?) sleeping on the couch,... More

Most beautiful location. Rooms basic European, towels very thin, no washcloths. Wifi is not free. 3 euros for 30 mins. Food good service good. Has own private beach, location worth every penny. Quite a walk from tour bus drop off area.

We stayed at this hotel during a school trip in June. We were all tired and glad to reach our destination. The charter bus had to drop us off at the top of the hill and we had to carry our luggage down to the hotel. The rooms were small, but clean and we had private bathrooms. Air conditioning cost...

Recently returned to find this hotel I stayed in in 1967 completely made over beautifully. Great family running it. Wonderful location as I remembered, sound of the waves. Enjoyed lunch with my husband on the terrace. Friendly, excellent service. Delightful to meet family members. Modern, airy, spacious hotel right on the beach. Yes, it's out of the way but there...

This place is right on the sea and offers direct access to the beach. They do charge 5 euros a night for air conditioning if you want it and they charge for towels for the beach. I paid 3 euros a towel, but kept them. They also charge for wifi, which I did not pay for. So it seemed everything... More

I read all the reviews complaining of the cleanliness but did not find that to be an issue for us during our recent March 2013 group visit. To be fair a couple positives: clean, some rooms have a view. Negatives: long walk up/down hill if you are traveling by bus from main road to hotel lobby. Shower is a tall... More

ok ok, the hotel is not the best hotel i've ever been to, the beds were not good and the shower was the size of a shoebox, but if you've been to several hotels in Europe/Italy you would find this normal. So back to why i loved this hotel, I still can not get over the amazing view we had.... More

This hotel was one of the nicest hotels I stayed in during my EF tour in Italy. The place was right on the beach, and was a quick walk to get ice cream. However the service was very poor. They charged us for extra towels, wi-fi, and pretty much anything else we needed. The food they served us wasn't very... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of an EF tour group. The hotel is down a hill and a tour bus cannot get right next to the hotel. This means you need to drag your suitcase down and up the hill--about a 5 min walk. It is not steep and I found the down trip was a little harder... More

This hotel is located almost right on top of the beautiful sea. There is a lovely beach about 100 meters from the hotel and the balconies look out over the water and you can hear the pounding waves at night. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel is kind of cool how it is built into the side of the... More
