I have stayed two times at the Caruso, and it really is a spectacular place. We stayed in the Greta Garbo Suite, and it was wonderfully spacious and comfortable, with a marvellous bathroom full of Penhaligon products. Service is not obsequious, but efficient, helpful and formal - I like it that way. The infinity pool is really the jewel in the crown, and there is a lovely bistro style restaurant next to it, for lunching with spectacular views to the sea below. That said, I do have to admit that I have never paid so much money for a pizza in all my life. We dined twice in the restaurant, food was delicious, and service was attentive. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the loud and klangy piano in the bar (perhaps Orient-Express would consider hiring a piano tuner or technician some afternoon in the not too distant future) I have stayed at a lot of 5 star hotels, and it would be difficult to find fault with this special, albeit very pricey hotel.
