The service in the hotel was great and the staff really nice. The hotel itself is in a great location with stunning views but is in need of re modernization its a bit 80's. The drinks prices and food are high and as a result its virtually empty at night time. The shuttle bus into town was good.

I have never been so disappointed in a hotel and the service in my life! I have traveled world wide and this has to be the worst. There is air conditioning in the rooms only. And that is mediocre No restaurants or lounge areas are air conditioned. When it is 97 out that is rough. You cannot get food or... More

We've just stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon around Italy and the hotel  was perfect. Staff were friendly, always welcoming and kind (we received a small bottle of prosecco on arrival). The hotel is clean and decorated well. The pool is lovely, but don't go too late as it the sun goes over the mountain after 5 pm.... More

The main attraction of this hotel in summertime is obviously the beach - but unfortunately, although the hotel has its own private beach, access to it and its usage is a horrible experience! The hotel guests are harassed by Maurizio, the beach tzar, who is more eager to sell the beds and umbrellas to people that are not clients of... More

This hotel is advertised as a 5 star hotel. I would rate it at a 3 star hotel in the best case. The views are 5 star, but all the accommodations were definitely not. The elevators were very slow and inaccurate. I feared getting stuck many times. The hallways smelled musty and old. The service was mediocre and less than... More

5 sleepless nights.The rooms are below ground level,long corridors which echo.Each night I jumped up from my bed dozens times when neighbours shut their doors. it was so loud as if it were in your own room. Breakfast was very ordinary - no fresh fruit only tinned. Eggs & other "hot" food was pre cooked, sitting in a warmer. If... More

We spent 10 days at the Il Saraceno for our honeymoon. Before going I read all the reviews but as the majority of reviews were good I went with an open mind. I have staid in many 4 and 5 Star hotels throughout the world and I was very pleased with the hotel. The hotel is lovely with antique furnishings... More

We spent 5 nights in this hotel, it started out great but when we left it was with mixed feelings. First the good, the setting is great, staying in the saracen castle is a great experience. The staff at the reception and also the restaurant is very friendly and efficient. The food is also excellent. The rooms are very clean... More
