We only spent one night at the Dolce Vita B&B. Good value with an incredible rooftop patio with a view of the sea. Short walk from the beach on a neat street. Stairs are steep and narrow but the staff is happy to help you carry anything up/down. Room are nothing special, but have everything you need. Free breakfast is... More

Magnificent view from room window, direct out over the sea. Rooms are high up, so you get fantastic view. Some rooms have balcony in bedroom and living room. AC and fridge. It’s a terrace over the rooms that you can use, amazing view, both sunrise and sunset. They also have cheaper room with view towards the street, or by the... More

Had a spacious room with a balcony to the street. Great to sit on or look from with doors open but noisy until midnight. Room basic but had character. Useful table and chairs if you wanted to eat anything in the room but despite a fridge not even a glass to drink from. Had to ask for one which was... More

We stayed in double room with the sea view and terrace and enjoyed the place a lot! Building is old but cared and the room was clean and we got good service. The view from the terrace is fantastic from where you can see sunsets and sea waves! Location is just in the middle of the town, personnel is helpful.

There's not much wrong with this place. It's just not wonderful either. Perfectly fine, clean, comfortable and friendly. They have a nice shared terrace overlooking the sea, and the owner is friendly and helpful, but the door is open onto the street, so there's a feeling it's not too secure. They don't offer breakfast, but you can go to one... More

These rooms are right on the coast, most rooms have balcony's and all have access to a shared terrace overlooking the sea at the back. The room I had was clean, tidy and well presented and the staff are pleasant and helpful. There was a 'problem' with their card machine (that old chestnut!) so had to get cash but not... More

There is no security door between the street and your hotel door. At 5 am, I awoke to someone trying my door handle. I called to my friend next door and a man was at my door saying he was looking for reception for a room in broken Italian. He kept knocking on my door saying to let him in... More

Small but clean - thats important. You can use the spacious terrase, specially in the evening after long walking is really beautiful. Owner is nice and helpfull. Breakfast... More
