We stayed 4 nights too many.
The room: so small there was only space to walk around the 2 twin beds making a double and mattresses so old we were constantly sinking in the middle, dirty carpets, one prison cell window, tiny bathroom. We did not expected to get the huge bedroom on the website's pictures, nor this.
The breakfast: beautiful photos of sunny buffet with fresh fruits... Shame we can't eat the pictures because there was none of this, instead: water with cheap orange cordial, coffee that put the shame on italian coffee reputation, dry mini pastries, crackers and processed cheese, cheap cereals. We were there in July! Honestly, I didn't even wanted to have my breakfast there...
The restaurant: Too pricy for what you get...(a bowl of pasta with chorizo sauce was 20 euro), this was no fine cuisine but sold as such with fancy words.
The swimming pool: Nice surroundings, but the water was warm and dirty. As well they offer you to borrow swimming towel at reception and then charge you 2 euro each, to BORROW them! it's almost offending. Don't expect a jug of water in your room either, that too you have to pay for.
And to finish up on the day we were leaving, at 11:45, I had a rude phone call from reception telling me, not asking, to vacate the room immediately, we were just ready to leave and found this call quite irritating.
In brief, a low budget hotel sold for a hight standard one, I mean that the hotel is on a budget not you!...
Poor service (asking for things several times as staff constantly forgets), room as big and comfortable as a prison cell, low quality breakfast, and also that constant feeling that they will drag every penny they can out of you (like when they OFFER you a refreshment of something from a jug somebody made hours ago, and you accept as you do, then watch them write it down on your hotel tab).
The villa is beautiful and has historical values but stay in and you will leave disappointed and pocket emptied, felling like you've just been robbed.
