3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2010

This hotel was very difficult to find and quite out of the way. The rooms needed work though they were clean. As it was a very hot day we were looking forward to a swim but the pool was unavailable as work was being carried out. We had dinner at the hotel and were told the cost would be 15 euros each by the waiter who spoke English, there was no menu offered we were just told what was available. We also had wine at a cost of 10 euros. When we checked out the following morning we were presented with a bill for 50 euros for dinner (10 euros overcharge). The man on reception spoke not one word of English and though we tried to explain the problem to him we could not make him understand and had to pay the full amount. It was a very disappointing stay in what looked like a nice hotel on the internet.

We have escaped from this hotel in the first night !

Our trip: romantic in young couple - partially spoiled by this hotel

-swimming pool
-restaurant and panorama terrase was Ok

-very old rooms, cracks everywhere, super old and not accurate
-dirty bath-room, very dirty douche cabine
-no english, very unfriendly people
-they invite external discos to the swimming pool area at night so as the guests can not sleep - nobody takes care about guest complaints - we had to pack our things and to escape to the different hotel middle in the first night. Nobody has compensated us the money we have payd for it - they just do not answer us. We lost 280 EUR. We travel very often - that never happened to us before - nowhere !
-very bad up-road to the hotel - through city slums of awful cava de tirreni

Avoid this hotel !
