Just to start. Food on both nights was superb. The chef came out to greet us to find out likes/ dislikes. There is a spa but unfortunately we were not advised to reserve ahead so were unable to use the facilities. My friends had an issue with the decor which looks like late 60's. I did not think it was... More

First of all the positive: the staff was very friendly and helpfull. Arriving at 17.30h we still had to wait 1 hour before our room was ready. The "Villa" was a large building (a block) and NOT the Tuscan Villa seen on every photo and what you are expecting. Also the interior decoration of the corridor and rooms do remember... More

The friendliness and happiness of the entire staff at Villasanpaulo was superb! We particularly enjoyed how helpful Romina, Livia and Sara were when we had questions or needed reservations and recommendations. They went out of their way to insure we saw the best and ate at the best places. We don't spend much time in our hotel when traveling, so... More

Well we thought that since the hotel Villa San Paolo was so highly ranked on tripadvisor, the restaurant should be very good as well. We looked at the pictures online and saw that the place looked to be a very nice fine dining restaurant, and even the signage at the front of the restaurant looked modern and nice. So we... More

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon and could not have asked for anything more. On arrival we were greeted warmly and congratulated on our recent nuptials, before being shown to a room in the older, original part of the complex, as it was more romantic.

We are probably a bit biased in review terms as we spent almost out entire three days here lounging around the spa, which was heaven. Book treatments before you arrive or as soon as you arrive and spend as much time as you have in the spa. Rooms were fine but nothing too special. Views are lovely though we didn't... More
