5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Some people have complained that it's not luxury. I disagree. It is not your usual swish 5 star hotel because it is built in the hillside and gives a rustic feel, but that's what is lively about it. Staff are lovely and the food is great . Kids love it.

We stayed at the Hermitage for 5 nights in May. The family room was very spacious and comfortable for our family of 4 (two adults and two toddlers). The views from the hotel are gorgeous and we had such a relaxing time there. The thing that makes this hotel so great is the wonderful service and amazing food. We chose... More

Location wonderful Hotel very nice Personnel extremely kind Food very accurately prepared and well presented. The only negative point was the somehow "mafia like" allocation of umbrella and chairs at the beach.

Instead of listing what is amazing about this hotel, it will be easier to say the bad points. There are no bad points, everything was outstanding. I came here as part of a business conference so the whole hotel was paid for. We got superb service, a real fine dining dinner, golf, swimming, volleyball, football, tennis. Absolutely everything you want,... More

I enjoyed a three days break at Hotel Hermitage with my family. Rooms are spacious, well cleaned and prepared. Food is amazing: from the breakfast buffet to the pool restaurant - whose pizzas reach the taste and quality of those you can get in Naples, to the dinner where starters, first and second courses are unbeatable. Not to mention the... More

The best holiday we've had so far. Costly, but worth it. Soldi ben spesi. A welcome gift from the local perfume company if booked on the website of the hotel. A charming place for weddings. A breath-taking view, excellent food, splendid service and facilities. A good kids' club and morning fitness classes. A rich farewell dinner at sunset. What else?!... More

We love this place however the rooms do need an upgrade. Compared to similar four and five star hotels on the island this is a very nice hotel. The staff was super friendly and we were greeted and treated with utmost respect. Don't go there in August though, the prices are insane and the crowds are overbearing. Best times of... More

Daily room clean-up and evening turndown were perfect. The amenities are top notch. We used the pool, pool bar, beach, beach bar, boat rental, spa (couple massage), golf, Salute trail,... More

One week at Hotel Hermitage and the one word that describes the experince is excellent. The one thing I missed was sunbed on the terrace at our room. The rest was just great, the location in Biodola bay, the hotel facilities, the breakfast , the lunch and the fantastic dinner through the week. We have been visiting hotels around the... More

I stayed here with my husband as we worked at a wedding which was being celebrated right at the hotel as I was the photographer. The structure is beautiful and immersed in the lush green of the garden overlooking the beautiful sandy beach. They also have a pool and jacuzzi and a pool bar, which was fun. It was great... More
