We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon from 9/30/13 to 10/5/13 and it was superb! The staff was always so quick to give us a recommendation, make a reservation or help in any way possible. Admittedly my Italian is not perfect, they were able to communicate in English and did so in a way that didn't make me feel bad.
The actual hotel was gorgeous. It was very clean and I loved the open atmosphere of the lobby and dining area. Our room was amazing, I am not sure if the hotel knew it was our honeymoon and we weren't upgraged to a suite or anything but we had a large room with a big window that gave us the perfect view of the beach/ocean/coastline. It was breathtaking to wake up to every morning and the sounds of the waves crashing as we fell asleep was a huge plus.
The staff came through and cleaned the room once a day in addition to turning down the room in the evening and leaving cute biscottis with new bottles of water.
The breakfast was great, somewhat disjointed, I think one AM I had a pasta and cheese dish with croissant and eggs but it was delicious. I believe the chef's name is Antonio and one morning when we came down to breakfast a little late, he still made us eggs! One of the waitors was particularly special (Irasimo (sp)) when we were surrdounded by 3-4 bees he came out wielding placemats to try and scare off the bees. He was so awesome and thoughtful. I still laugh when I think about him trying to get the bees away.
We also enjoyed the roof deck pool at the end of almost every day, it closes a little on the early side (6:30 PM) but the attendant, Leo was so awesome. Just a really friendly, sweet guy. We enjoyed spending an hour or so every day relaxing from whatever we did that day with a quick dip and a glass of white wine.
The location was almost perfect, set back away from the busy town but a very quick 5 minute walk to the ferrys/buses/town. The entrance to the hotel is located right on a pretty severe hairpin turn so that took some getting used to when we exited the hotel just as a tour bus was making that turn but something like this cannot be helped.
I cannot say enough about this place. We had an excellent time!
