Rooms were clean however bed making staff needs to be retrained. Room was very simple. A/C is controlled by receptionist if you don't wanted ,other option was... More

On our third return to this hotel, we expected the welcome we had had the last time. Huge disappointment. We had booked a Sea View room in November for our stay in June. We arrived a day late (nightmare AlItalia journey) but had paid in advance so we knew that was a loss but despite having called to confirm the... More

We decided to return to this hotel and the room we got second time was fabulous. Lovely view of the sea, not very private as it also looked out onto the sun beds on the terrace, and people could see right into the room as they strolled past but we got used to it. Breakfast was lovely and the service... More

On arrival we were quite disappointed with the room, it was very small and next to the spa so very noisy. We moved to another room which was much more spacious. The rooms were cleaned every day, air conditioning was nice and cool, breakfast was good, small selection of salami, cheese and breads as well as pastries, fruits and cereals,... More

We booked the last minute cheap room. It turned out to be on the roof with the pool, very clean, very convenient. Small but enough for us. There was a door out to the town from the roof. We did not eat any meals there but there are plenty of restaurants nearby (La Bella Napoli being the best we ate... More
