Purchased a Groupon for one night with 3-course dinner for 69 Euros, supposedly worth 200. Even 69 euros was too high for what we got. The hotel claims 4 stars but I would rate it 2 at best. The rooms are clean but tiny; AT least we had working air conditioning. I went to swim in the pool and was told that everyone, even men, needed to wear bathing caps - which they sold for two euros. Service is awful. "Dinner" consisted of finding a table, then being scolded by a nasty waiter because we weren't at "our table", though nobody knew where that was. The appetizer buffet wouldn't have passed muster at Denny's, and the meal was a cattle-car get-in and get-out affair in a hot, crowded, violently noisy room. The only wine came from a serve-yourself spigot and was undrinkable. The food, tolerable but not great, came so fast we were being hustled out the door in under 30 minutes, and glad to leave. Breakfast was watery self-service machine coffee and stale pastries - we left and had our cornetti and cappuccini elsewhere. Too bad - it's a nice location right at the end of the shopping area of Forio and walking distance to the marina - but not, as advertised on their website, a "few steps" from the beaches, which are far away.
