“Delicious Saraceno”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

This is a delicious hotel located nearby the sea, on the rocks, 2 minutes walk from the very center of Giglio Porto. The terrace, where breakfast and dinner are served, is fronting the sea: just beautiful. Very good cooking: fabouls at dinner, however better to have lunch elsewhere because they are not very well organized at 12. Take a room with sea view, unforgettable experience. The island is a small paradise, at least in May, when I went there. I'll return to Saraceno!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2011

The room was brilliant with a lovely view overlooking the breakwater and then the port beyond it. Shower, Air-conditioning Good, Bed comfortable, Swimming -from steps cut into the rocks was great, although there was no easy access freshwater shower after swimming other than in the room. Just round the corner is a tiny beach which was - 2000 years ago - a Roman fish trap. Living history.

It's wonderfully peaceful - no traffic front or back, the only possible irritation could be if the seagulls get bossy. It is quite incredibly relaxing.

The staff were wonderfully helpful. We were loaned a car by a friend on Giglio and when we arrived back late one night - and there was no car parking space, the night concierge took the keys and parked the car. Simple as that!

Breakfasts were good but our only disappointment was the evening meal - we only ate once and wished we hadn't - it was simply an uninspiring meal. Its the only thing that prevented me from giving the hotel an excellent rating. With the harbour with all its waterfront cafes and restaurants only a 100 yards or so away its not a big deal to stay B&B!

We stayed for four days - next time I'll stay longer.

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra for the superior room with views

Our first time on Giglio just for 3 nights in the shoulder season mid-Sept. This hotel in a very convenient position with great sea and town views from the rooms and the restaurant. Giglio Porto is the place to stay on the Island in our opinion-more going on there and the best beach just around the corner at Le Canelle. We only had breakfast tehre as too many other places to try in the town. You can swim straight off the rocks below the hotel -stairs down but the final steps test your agility-otherwise the little cove nearby or the proper beach. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms comfortable, clean and functional
