After having visited the cote d'azur, then Florence me and my family moved here to have some more sun. The place is really nice cozy and clean. Unfortunately the weather is not that great as it is windy. Anyway we recommend this hotel for those who want to have a lovely stay in such a lovely and adorable seaside place.

One of the extraordinary hotel experiences I have ever had. Stayed there in July for a far too short two nights. Small hotel with a level of personal service that is rare. The setting is magnificent and our room had a wonderful view of the ocean with a very private small deck on which to sun and read. Our favorite... More

For me, once I read a ton of raves, I get bored.. so let me enlighten you by giving you the good, and yes, the bad.. Firstly, the good.. and as you can see from the other reviews, there are many.. the hotel itself... More

A jewel of a hotel nestled into the Italian hillside, reminiscent of a 1950's movie. Tranquil, friendly, beautiful and delicious food and service. Sea water pool or a rocky descent to the bay Quaint bar overlooking the sea two very good restaurants (one Michelin starred) Excellent wine cellar with reasonably priced wines as well as expensive ones

We stayed for 2 nights on honeymoon and it is simply superb, with a unique atmosphere and charming history. Lovely food in both restaurants, fabulous location, great friendly staff...couldn't ask for anything more. Go if you can! The tasting menu in the Pellicano restaurant is also fantastic, but make sure you are hungry!

To me, its one of the best hotels in the world- I just love the elegance of the house, the attentive service, the amazing food for lunch and dinner, the smell of rosemary all over- in a world full of brand new hotels, this one stands out as one of those places with a soul.

We returned to Hotel Il Pelicano for our 10th wedding anniversary having first come here on Honeymoon. We had an amazing stay 10 years ago and had vowed to return but were worried that we didn't want to ruin our original memories of the hotel. Luckily it did not disappoint and was if anything better. We had previously stayed in... More

Went for lunch and got a tour of the facilities, it's beautiful very private and pricey. Lunch was excellent but 220 euros. Lovely beach with elevator access. Pool and dining room looks like you are inside a birdcage. This hotel/restaurant came highly recommended from a friend. Formerely a relais chateax hotel. Top marks
