Boring looking hotel with an antiquated interior design. Nothing special apart maybe from a nice looking pool. Breakfast was terrible. Over the top hysterical waiters who could not get an order right. Avoid hot beverages like tea because the water always arrives luke warm. Staff here have a very loud manner of greeting guests which sounded so fake and annoying.... More

It was our 5th time at this hotel, and as good as ever. Beautiful rooms, caring managment, nice breakfast (especially if Luca is performing and Tony is in charge). Beach lunch is very good. A lot of space on the beach.

About a 10 minute walk to the beach, the property was a bit disappointing for our expectations of a Relais Chateaux. Rooms were average in size and furnishings, hallways were long and dimly lit , and front desk service was average at best. Service however at breakfast was excellent.
