The Grand Hotel Palazzo is an old palace that was totally refurbished and brought into the 21st century a short while ago. The tasteful renovation was done a couple of years ago so not much to complain about the amenities. If you are lucky enough to get a room facing the sea you will not be disappointed with the views, simply stunning. The rooms are of pretty decent size and very comfortable. Where I see a problem is with cleanliness which in certain areas must be improved. The bathrooms could be cleaner, there are signs that since the renovation no repairs were done when things were broken. To state a few examples, the carpets need to be hoovered from time to time, or lightbulbs need to be replaced once broken - these are elementary things that need to be perfect in a so called 5 star hotel. That said, there isn't much that needs to be done in terms of upkeeping - yet! I regrettably predict that the maintenance of the hotel will be neglected which is a danger because things will then start falling apart very quickly. But I would for sure stay at the Grand Hotel Palazzo again, mainly also because of the breakfast which was great! Very nice buffet wide great variety and the little bonus is when its good weather and you can eat outside. The hotel restaurant on the top floor is fine, typical hotel restaurant with not much atmosphere but the food was good.
