4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I read with some surprise the criticism by some recent reviewers of the front desk team at this hotel. My wife and I stayed here in July - we must have overlapped with at least two of those reviewers - and our experience was quite different. We arrived in the early afternoon, before the formal check-in time. We were told... More

We spent 3 nights there in Mid-July. We had fairly basic small rooms, but this was for, what I gather was, a commensurately basic (by local standards!) rate. I didn't really care about the rooms as the setting of the hotel and layout of the property is among the best, if not the best, in Santa Margheurita. The terrace of... More

As always, we had a wonderful time here. My family has been coming here for years and has never been disappointed. Thank you, John, for your hospitality, recommendations, and attention! We always look forward to our time here and are always sad to leave!

This is an enigma of a hotel. On paper it has everything, and plenty of people have reviewed if favorably. Yet it is a story of lost opportunity. The good: the location, beautiful views, a five minute walk to the town (up hill on the way back), quiet (apart from the night -once a week- when they have a "special"... More

Stayed in room 21 in june 2015. For 3xx euro per night. Not only i was not impressed, i was disgusted. The room was tired. With cracks in the wall. Small tv located at the far corner. Balcony was dirty, untidy with leaves and dust all over. I requested John to change the room, and his reply was not friendly.... More

Dear Ms Viaviacho, Kuala Lumpur - Malesia, we are sorry to learn that you found some leaves on the terrace and that some birds have soiled your car ( if the garage attendant would have been told, he would have cleaned it immediately ) and to have heard about all your complaints regarding the hotel. But the room price you... More

We visited this hotel for four nights.We learned about this hotel from Trip Advisor and after finding out a bit more regarding the area decided to stay at this hotel. When we arrived a gorgeous view of the sea greeted us. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The hotel sits on a hilltop looking over the town of Santa Margherita... More

Spent a few days here, enjoyed the beach, the beach restaurant, the deck for drinks, and the great breakfast. Classic old hotel, the rooms a little on the small side - but we had our own terrace that made the room seem twice the size! And you definitely want to spend the time outside...

I am afraid that my wife and I didnt find this hotel as marvelous as some of the reviewers. Let me get all the bad points out of the way first. When we booked this hotel in January 2015, we sent an E Mail asking if we could have a sea view. This request was depicted on the booking form.... More

There is a lot to like about this hotel. It's well located, has gorgeous views and a terrific swimming area. But this is a hotel that squanders its assets. The decor is seriously dated. The lobby has a faintly soviet era air, a feeling carried into the sparsely furnished rooms. The bed was hard to the point of discomfort, likewise... More
