I have taken school groups from New Zealand to this hotel on at least 8 occasions, beginning in the early nineties, my most recent visit being in July 2012. The hotel has improved in many ways over these years, at the same time retaining the charm of an unspoilt and family-run business. The town is safe and ideal for overseas students to get a taste of Italian life without being overwhelmed by it. Almost every visit, there has been a wedding or confirmation at the hotel, thus giving an excellent view of Italian traditions.The hotel personnel have hardly changed in all the years I have been going there, which indicates they have a real interest in how the hotel is run. They are always extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but have always been clean and comfortable and the students have been very happy there. As tour leader in recent years, my rooms have been very nice indeed. The pool is excellent and the proximity to Naples and classical sites make this hard to beat. I have recommended this hotel to a number of couples who have enjoyed their stay there and hope to stay there with my husband in 2014.
