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.
