“WONDERFUL LOCATION A BIT EXPENSIVE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

The residence is directly on the beach with a very nice outside pool and a private parking.
Each studio has his own big balcony facing the sea a nd the "Gallinara"so you'll can enjoy unforgettable sunsets just outside your room.
Buffet breakfast is very good but you have to find some discounted price cause their pricelist is in my opinion, expensive ( I mean you don't get wath you pay for ).
Try to avoid "standard studios" and book the "superior" if you don't wanna sleep in old, unconfortable sofa bed !!!

Big studio with many comforts and daily cleaning, all with a breathtaking seaview ( most of them on "Gallinara Island").
Perfect for a short break far from the city life, directly on the secluded private beach and with a very nice outdoor pool directly on the beach.
Good breakfast, but pretty expensive restaurant.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2010

We've stayed in this hotel in July, 2009. The weather was amazing, so we enjoyed our stay very much, as long as we relaxed on a beach. The view is absolutely romantic and hotel is direct on beach. Location is very good if you want to enjoy beach and sun, but not very good if you want to explore surroundings without vehicle. It was about 10-15 min on foot to the old city centre (which is amazing), 5 min by car.
As to hotel.. there was no air conditioner (1st floor room), room very spacios, but outdated. You have to pay extra if you want to use kitchen.
Bed was very (VERY) soft and uncomfortable.
I would not recommend this hotel.

We only stayed 1 night as a stopover on our way to Florence. The rooms were very spacious but very basic. They could use some renovation. Tip: The triple room can easily sleep 6 and the double 4. The best part was waking up to the view from the balcony. The rooms were a bit overpriced compared to comparable 3 star hotels.

Hotel has fantastic view of beach and great pool, but the cheaper rooms are drab having not been touched since the fifties. Parking costs extra as does use of the kitchen (€30) which is poorly equipped. Located in scrub-lands outside of town, it's a 15 minute walk to the medieval old town. If you're just looking to lie on the beach it's perfect, but if you're looking for a taste of Italy go elsewhere.
