“Great little hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2007

This is a great litle hotel that has a lot of charm and the feel of a nice little getaway, the grounds are a highlight of the hotel , all the gardens, isolated lounge areas , very private areas, good food, nice staff, This is a quite old hotel (I think built in the 1950's) but this is a plus, gives you the feeling of old Italy, I had a superior sea view room ,,it was rather small, but just fine, the grounds make up all the difference.The beach is very nice with restaurants, bars, Beds for rent. I would stay here again, but mabye get a larger room. My opinion of this hotel, just a charming, romanic hotel for all ages, the atmosphere it creates is its selling point

  • Liked — The grounds, isolated areas with beds
  • Disliked — Small room, but they have better
  • Stayed September 2007, traveled as a couple

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2006

We stayed at this fantastically located 3 star hotel in May this year. I have to say we were most impressed and it exceeded our expectations , we were a bit apprehensive as the year before we had had quite a disappointing stay at another hotel on the island that had been highly recommended by this web site. The Danila’s main asset is it’s location you literally walk out of your door and within a few steps your on to the powdery sand of the romantic Biodola bay. The hotel itself is very charming and although the room we stayed in was on the small side it was perfectly adequate and very clean with air-conditioning, satellite TV and safe. Another plus was the shaded car parking for the guests. My only slight disappointment was the food although the portions were good. I would have preferred to go just B&B however like with most Italian resort hotels it’s not encouraged to do just B&B as it’s nearly always as costly as doing half board I would suggest having lunch in the hotel and dinner at the wonderful restaurant right on the beach in front of the hotel ( Da Luciano) I will most definitely go to this hotel again however we were advised by the locals that the beach is extremely crowded in peak season from mid June through to August

Dolce relaxVentisette rooms, most with private entrance, on four terraces that express the solar atmosphere and Mediterranean Bay Scaglieri, squeezed between the wider gulf and the small inlet of the oven. The Hotel Danila is a discreet presence in the alchemy of a landscape that few other places in the island gives a handful of meters a sandy beach and lush bush of myrtle, arbutus and mastic.

And 'why each room type is a world unto itself, built around environments that express the warmth of a sober and authentic in the values ​​it expresses. The deeper meaning of hospitality management Stefania and Luisa, who have taken over the last decade to the mother Danila - an example of forward-looking woman and entrepreneur Elbe after World War II - is enclosed in their ability to accommodate guests in the desire to do the holiday experience to live in freedom. Discovering the heritage of the island nature through hiking, mountain biking and kayaking or simply in silence and sweetness of the vegetation that surrounds the entire structure, in a profusion of colors and fragrances from spring to late summer. From every room you can see the brush strokes of blue sea that flows into the emerald green shades along the shoreline and cliffs that surround the beaches of Scaglieri and Biodola. A conciliatory presence in an environment that still preserves intact the landscape on which first bet Danila and now Luisa and Stefania defend and reproduce through a run hotel attentive to the welfare of the soul and body, also certified by the prestigious European Ecolabel, according to a logic that rewards the use of renewable energy and biological materials, biodegradable and recyclable. ... more   less
