Definitely the ideal hotel in Lacco Amena with a superb waterside location, outstanding views from most rooms and all dining areas. The grandness of the many sitting rooms and bar areas remind one of olden days with a reasonable upgraded appearance and overall 'feel' to the place. Staff attentive and knowledgeable and good in many languages. We were very fortunate in our room location and had a massive balcony private to us only. Vistas were beyond amazing. Indaco gourmet restaurant on site which is superb. Main dining of high quality although less attentive staff but within normal expectations for Italy. The pools include outside and inside spa thermals etc. Definitely superior location for walking the beachside shops and local food joints. Air conditioning is not good on the negative side, and one has to expect older style Italian style, but overall this is the best choice in the area and close to travel to other Island spots which have amazing vistas and beaches given most Italian beaches are rocky - not here!
