“From guests to friends...STAY HERE: Organic food, fair advice and relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2010

For Spring Break, my friend and I decided to book on Refugio Romano. It was one of the best decisions in our trip. Since our arrival, Lucio came to greeted us and helped us. Soon we met Mayra. We stayed with this wonderful couple for a long weekend.

Lucio is a fantastic cook, so we didn't need to go out for breakfast. The food was amazing since they grow their own eggs from a mini-farm in the backyard. We catch up with news from the region and learn a lot about life and history in Real. Our conversations went so well that we had a bonfire at night accompanied by good red wine we brought and shared. Splendid views from the yard and terrace made a unforgettable days and nights.

We can't wait to get back to visit our new friends.

it has to be the best place in town. mayra and lucio love what they do, and they do it well. the hotel is up above the city, but it is only a few steps down to the main street. when you get into town, don't ask where the hotel is by it's name, ask where mayra and lucio's hotel is! the hotel is more the an inn, with gardens, a place to play badmitton, the kitchen is huge and inviting. this is where you will eat the wonderful meals the couple prepares. you can eat elsewhere, but i certainly would not. we want to go back next year and stay longer. it is an oasis, a restful place, above a haunted town. we just loved it!

I loved my stay at Refugio Romano. I really felt that I was able to relax in the best atmosphere. Lucio and Mayra were so attentive it was as if they were related. I could not have had a better stay. The rooms were super clean and very comfortable. The food was outstanding. My children felt comfortable and safe. They had a great time! I also appreciate their commitment to a sustainable business and love their organic choices in food.

I will never stay anywhere else.
