This hotel was perfect for us. It is set up on the hill with stunning views. When we arrived, unfortunately our room was not available, which was a bit of a shock. However, the staff were very apologetic and quickly shipped us to a nearby hotel just for one night, where we benefited the next morning from using their beach. On our return to Gran Paradiso we were delighted with our room. It was clean, simple and modern with a balcony and the most amazing views over the sea, the mountains and, in the distance, Mount Vesuvius.
We enjoyed the breakfasts, although they got a bit 'samey' by the end of the week. The one meal we had at the hotel was excellent.
What really made the stay, though, was the staff. Not sure if it is the Italian people in general or the Gran Paradiso staff in particular, but they really went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The reception girls were always cheerful and really knew the area if you needed information about excursions. The shuttle bus was regular and easy to plan around and it was well worth the inconvenience of being out of easy walking distance to the main town for the fabulous views alone. I would highly recommend this hotel, especially if you want a quiet poolside free from young children. There were always sun loungers available, although sometimes you had to get in there early with your towels and there was usually parasols free even though they could probably do with a few more. The only change I would make would be some king of tea and coffee making facility in the room for us Brits - I think it is a continental thing but I really missed this. I would highly recommend this beautiful place.
