“Small Rooms, Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We had initially booked here for several nights however it rained heavily and everything the hotel offered that we would use (pool, bocce, courts, beach) was closed; so we left after only one night.

However the rooms are very small and no interconnecting available, they were clean and tidy.

The hotel's private beach was rocks, not sand (we are spoilt in Australia) however it would be lovely in warm weather. I would recommend swimming shoes or at least thick socks for children on the beach and for entering the water. The walk down is either via steps (to the right) or a road track (to the left). There is a 4wheel drive that can take you down and back if desired and runs most of the day.

The pool was closed very early, too early as we would have gone for a swim upon arrival and were all ready to go in when told it was closed. We headed to the beach (it is an interesting walk down).

As it was now off season, it was quiet and it appeared that none of the beach eatery area would be open (although not sure on this as mentioned we arrived late and didn't stay on due to bad weather). Breakfast was a typical Italian breakfast of sweet breads and some cold meats - nothing hot except a coffee or tea.

There is very minimal service at this hotel, we took all our bags up and down to the room and there wasn't much information provided on check in about the amenities. People must come for the location as the area itself and the township just a short stroll back up the road from the hotel carpark is absolutely lovely.

I cannot stress enough how magnificent is this hotel location. It has the hills of a full bay, and is the only beach service on the bay beach. This means that its beach is not over-packed with umbrellas and chairs like many other Italian beaches, and is much more quiet. The beach is not private (anyone can access it from Numana Alta beach, right next to it), but since the front row of umbrellas and chairs is reserved for hotel guests, and there is only one other row behind for everyone else, it doesn't get too crowded. Actually, in a June Monday it was heaven on Earth, with very few people on the beach...

The location also means that there is a steep hill to go from the hotel to the beach, but this was not a problem for me and my girlfriend. The hotel offers a Land Rover to pick-up and drop guests from the beach, but it does not run all day (and also not on request). We did end up using it anyway, once around lunch time and another late afternoon.

Another important point to mention is that we were the only young couple at the hotel during our stay (and it was quite crowded in the weekend). This is more of a family/old couples hotel, but actually this didn't bother us at all.

Now, for the food, since they mandate at least half-board during summer: go for the lunch at the beach. If you just want to relax and rest for a few days, don't having to leave the beach to eat is marvelous. They bring large portions of very reasonable food (not excellent). For a lighter lunch at the beach (we always choose the lighter foods, like salad for starters and then the fish), it is more than enough. However, we did ate dinner once (we arrived too late on the first day to have lunch), and it was a bit of a disappointment. I mean, it was the same food, but in a restaurant I think we automatically expected a bit more.

Finally, for the service: most of the people are very friendly, but we did have two "not so nice" encounters. Nothing that detracted too much from the full experience, but a bit annoying anyway. One was exactly at our first dinner, when we were received not in the best of ways. The other one was when asking for information about nearby cities and beaches... one other thing: I speak Italian, so language was not a problem for me, but I suspect that many of the staff speaks very little English (or not at all; but it is only a suspicion). Very friendly Ilaria at the reception (who also takes care of reservations) definitely speaks though (and very well by the way).

Overall: memorable experience, that once we learned who to ask information to and where to eat (did I say: the beach!!!), was really perfect.

Room Tip: For the relatively small cost difference, I think that they "sea view" rooms are definitel...

whe have stayed for 5 days, 1/2 pension that cost € 120 per person, its €240 a room a day! We would have a breakfast and a diner.
The breakfast was such hard bread that you could throw it thrue a window! And onely jam on it!
The diner was a big light room with a lot of people and cold vegetables and pizza.
We did go to out for diner to a little restaurant for 2 times because the food in the hotel was so bad!
The pool was salty and the walk to the beach too long!!
In this hotel the don´t speak any English nore German, onely Italian!.
We are Dutch and could not communicate that is a bad thing for a hotel € 240 a Room!!! I come in a lot of hotels in the world this was the baddest. My girlfriend and i did have a nice time in Italy because we are madly in love but the stay in the hotel has noting to do with that.

We stayed 5 days and loved it. The first day on the beach the management brought down wonderful antipasta. Yum. Our rate included 3 meals a day and they were great. Spent time at the pool and the beach. Played bocce ball in the afternoon. Would go back in flash.
