We were recommended by an Italian friend who usually stays there and we were very satisfied with our stay! The location is the best in Palau. Walking distance to everything! The staff went out of their way to help us! Huge room with a huge comfortable and modern bed!

Very spacious room with traditional furnishings. Staff were very welcoming and helpful with plenty of advice on places to eat and things to do. The breakfast offered plenty of choices although there was no opportunity to eat al fresco. The hotels location was great and offered easy access to the beaches and the ferry to La Madalenna. Would definitely recommend... More

Over all a nice experience as the hotel is very charming, located close to the harbour and the restaurants. It has a friendly atmosphere. We initially booked one of the suites, but as it was facing towards the parking lot and LOUD music was playing from the bar beside the hotel between 07.30 and 02.00 we asked to get another... More

Just stayed their last night. Reasonably sized, clean rooms...although the beds were rather hard. Location is great...the night we were there, there was a market happening, and the next morning was even a bigger market. Breakfast was good too. If you want a comfortable, well located, hotel, (I mean, it's not the Ritz) you probably can't go wrong here.

This is a 4 star hotel fitted out in a traditional/old fashioned way Perhaps it may look like a 3 star but the attentiveness, service, cleanliness and professionality is beyond any 4 star I've ever been in Great buffet breakfast btw!

We stayed at this hotel 7 nights and everything was wonderful. Is a small, coquette and very clean hotel with friendly stuff. The rooms are very clean and well decorated.

We loved this hotel. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. We had a small balcony on the back. The hotel served a good breakfast, it is located in the middle of the village, just by the port an all restaurants and stores. There are several nice beaches a few minutes’ drive away. I do not know if this is... More

Dear Guest, We thank you for your lovely review. It could be useful for all travellers to know that there is parking near the hotel. Years ago there wasn't any parking there and maybe in a near future there will be a park with flowers and gardens. Kindest regards. More

We spent 6 days in La Vecchia Fonte and wished we could stay longer! The hotel is located perfectly: very close to the seafront with at least 2 nice beaches walking distance away. The room was clean, stylish and spacious, and we had an awesome balcony overlooking the marina. There are basic amenities, including a small cattle and variety of... More

The hotel is located close to the harbor overlooking the harbor. There is a fine service, and the location is close to the ferry to Madelena. But the room balconies are micro in the regular classic rooms. Moreover, one can not eat breakfast outside - a shame, because there is a beautiful view. And finally, I missed a swimming pool....
