We are frequent travellers both for work and leasure. We were not very happy with our stay at L'approdo, a hotel that we would rate as 3 stars max, not as 4 stars.The asking price is too high for what the hotel actually is. The pictures shown on the website and on tripadvisor (perhaps put by the hotel staff?) are definetly missleading: the swimming pool is very small, probably 15 m by length or less and not nice; we stayed in a traditional room, very different from the pictures shown on the website.Traditional = dated. The room was clean and we slept well, but the price was a rip off. When we arrived we were told that there might be wifi connection in the room, but the receptionist was not sure???guess what? There was no wifi connection in the room.The service at the restaurant is appalling and it is a pity because the food is very good: at breakfast the waiters talk to each other instead of attending the guests, you have to get up from the table and approach them if you wish to get a cup of coffee; at dinner we asked to sit closer by the sea, but the waiters didn't understand our request and there were free tables.
After 8:00 there is no loung bar at the hotel. The swimming pool bar closes and there is no bar at the reception.
The best part of the reception is used as a 'trendy shop' therefore there is only one sofa left for the guests to sit on.
All and all we will not go back to this hotel.
