The hotel is in a very nice location with view on the bay underneath. The rooms are spread either in the central structure or as small villas where each villa has 2-3 small apartments. Our apartment was nice and well clean. The garden and the pool, the sport and leisure infrastructures, serve well any need. The personell is very friendly.... More

Our plan was to stop for only one night, but decided to stay 2 more days. If you have a car this is one of the greatest areas in Italy.
