“Best experience of my life.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2005

I cannot say enough about this hotel. It was my first experience in an extravagantly beautiful hotel, and although I have traveled fairly extensively since then I have not been able to find a place that begins to compare.

It really feels like you've escaped to Tuscany. The gardens are picturesque, the building is made to look aged on the outside, and there is a beautiful pool and fountain. It is quiet, peaceful, and incredibly romantic.

The rooms are extraordinary. The bathroom is luxurious, gleaming gold colours everywhere, and a shower that felt like rain (and big enough for a party, should you like to throw one). A nice special touch was a fresh rose that was placed in a vase by the sink. The beds were very comfortable, also important to note.

The staff were friendly and professional, and willing to help at a moment's notice. The breakfast buffet was the best I've ever had, everything freshly prepared and croissants to die for.

I have been dreaming about this place ever since I left it. I cannot wait to return. I've spent thousands trying to recreate the feeling it inspired within me, but this hotel, although much cheaper than others, beats them all hands down.

Wierd. Everything is done in faux italian. This matches Montecasino which is all italian as well. I am not sure why but it felt a bit strange. The room was gorgeous. Getting a taxi at the concierge was a bit wierd and expensive but asking the porters at the door was much better. The casino was typical casino tacky a la vegas. Not too big but fine. Also a cinema complex within.
