I recently stayed at Hotel Universal. We were a group of 6 English people. The only English speaking in the hotel. We were treated with special attention, all the staff were so kind and charming.

This hotel felt like we were visiting family. We were made so welcome. Food was plentiful with some great dishes on offer. The pasta & lemon sorbet were amazing. Roof top pool was really lovely, rooms large and drinks on the terrace was a great way to end the day. Beach so close too. We travelled to Bologna and got... More

First of all I would like to thank Catia Battistelli once again for her immeasurable hospitality and dedication. This is a fine hotel with generously sized rooms, spotlessly clean and genuinely friendly, helpful staff who are more than willing to make you feel welcome. It's a traditional, family-run hotel and you can feel it. I thoroughly enjoyed the warm evenings... More

Booked hotel to stay whilst attending motogp. Very good location, a 10 minutes walk to main part of town, but that meant it was quiet and with a car, made it easier for parking. Hotel was probably 3 star, but very comfortable and good price. Room small but had nice view of sea (side view). Breakfast was basic but sufficient.... More
