“A real gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2008

We stayed at the Gallo Nero for four nights in June 2008 and wish we could have stayed longer.
Beautiful view of the coastline and the sea, short (albeit rather steep) walk down to the quiet beach through lovely well tended gardens.
We were a bit dubious about compulsory half board and expected to want to eat out but the food was amazing and offered a good choice every evening. Wine list was extensive.
Room very comfortable.
The staff were friendly and accomodating and proactively suggested activities and gave us information about walks in the national park. Limited English speaking on reception but managed to get by in German!
