We stayed at the San Pietro and had a lovely time. We had a junior suite with a balcony and a sea view that was beautiful. The rooms were bright, spacious and comfortable. Reading some of the negative reviews on TripAdvisor, it's hard to believe we stayed at the same hotel. Everyone who worked at the hotel who we interacted... More

We booked a sea view room for our honeymoon stay and imagined unobstructed sea view luxury. The view is nice when you can see it but what we received and what they do not tell you is that you will have a partial sea view, with a car park and derelict building to the left and obscured by trees and...

We stayed at the San Pietro from 4th-11th August 2014 and we really did have a wonderful time. The hotel is very lovely, and just a short walk into the town centre in a quiet street- I would say it’s more 4* then 5* as it lacks that very premium edge, but it's certainly very nice. I would recommend this... More

Stayed at the hotel in August 2014, can't really fault the hotel other than the dreadful wifi but it lacks something. There is no really special feeling of luxury that one would expect from a 5*L hotel. It was perfectly fine but it wasn't fantastic. In relation to the views, we paid extra for a sea view room with a... More

When we arrived we found that we had been allocated a front facing room with no balcony (not the hotel's fault). The staff were most obliging and able to find us an upgrade to a sea facing room with a balcony. This transformed our experience! The hotel is a short up hill walk into town, but a shuttle service is... More

We desperately looked for someone nice during our staying at the hotel...chou blanc...nobody, whaloo... Service is absolutely terrible...more than one can imagine... do not hope to get a "hello" or even a single smile it is probably too much to ask... They are slow and almost don't care about you...This is a shame because view is breath taking and you... More

They put on a stereo's radio and the signal isn't even clear! Ppl sure are nice but i dont find that enough. Nice view though. Italian peasants take care of you but they re nice.... More
