The Hotel was great and really clean. We enjoyed to stay in the hotel. Unfortunately was the location of the hotel not really good. It's sorounded from dirty apartments, thought the beach is right in front of the hotel. We needed 30 min to get to a grocery store and a city wasn't there anywhere. The beach was full of... More

Absolutely fabulous hotel, it has the beach across the road and a large marina. There are a few lovely restaurants in the marina including steak and seafood. The staff were extremely professional and friendly (excellent English), any questions we asked were answered. The roof top bar was fantastic with amazing views of the ocean and marina, the bar tender made... More

After a long tour we came here because it was VERY near to the Airport. The street area to the rear of the hotel is a bit run-down, but it faces directly onto the beach, there are a couple of good beach bars withing 5-10mins walking distance and turning right gets you down to the harbour area, yachts, bars etc....

The hotel was nice. Not sure I'd visit the location again as it was abit run down, especially the street behind but it suited us after our cruise albeit the hotel was over priced in my opinion. A few nice restaurants were found in the harbour area tho.

The Restaurant is very uncomfortable, the Air-condition made sounds of a very loud alarm clock every half an hour all through the night and should be cleaned, the "Spa" was just 2 plastic Whirlpools and so dirty that after the slimy bath I had a rush on my skin and being on a busy street the ocean view could not...

We chose this hotel for some relaxation after spending a week in Rome, we were not disappointed, the hotel and marina area are lovely and very quiet. Unfortunately the area behind the hotel was not so good and even though I am sure it is very safe we did feel a little intimidated when trying to find the nearest supermarket,... More

It was my last night in Italy before flying home to the UK. The hotel and its service was good and I enjoyed the roof bar and my breakfast before heading off to the airport. They booked my cab and it turned up on time.

This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in (and I do 100+ hotel nights every year). Very professional staff, great room where you find everything where you expect it to be. The rooftop area is super. And the entire hotel runs like clockwork.

Gorgeous view. Comfy stay! Near the airport. Things to do places to dine in the evening. Afternoon was very quiet in July but the perfect time to hit the beach which is right out front. Excellent breakfast in the morning as well.
