We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights following a week wine tasting in Tuscany and were not disappointed with its position in pretty Procchio. The hotel benefits from a lovely pool (although to cool to use in September) and nice private beach, both of which would pass as 5 star with a few customer service improvements. We arrived at the hotel on the early ferry and so approached reception at about 11AM not expecting to be able to check in, but to go through the paperwork and complete the booking process. We had a minor disagreement with reception at check in (a misunderstanding regarding our travel arrangements that was resolved to our satisfaction at the end of our stay) but other than this it was a smooth process and reception told us to avail of the hotels facilities and that they would contact us when the room was ready. About an hour later we were called back to reception to be shown our standard room (914) in the block overlooking the tennis courts and backing the car park and hotel storage area. Because we had not paid for a sea view we were not surprised to be on the 1st floor with a good view of the hotels storage area and part of the car park. The room itself was spacious, clean and comfortable with a practical bathroom with full size bath and overhead shower, however we were surprised that the bath panel was fixed at the tap end making it difficult to run a bath. There was a good selection of nice quality toiletries provided. The bed was comfortable and the furnishings which although a little worn, were practical. There was a small balcony with a not so good view which was adequate for our needs. Wardrobe space was good and a safe was available. Maid service was good and there was also a daily turn down service.
Breakfast was very good which was served in the terrace of the main hotel building about 5 minutes walk from our room. We also availed of lunch at the hotels beach restaurant which was also good and not too pricey. We ate out in the evenings and there are an handful of restaurants which are easily walkable from the hotel. The pool bar service was also excellent when available.
