I am not sure what hotel these other reviewers have been to but it's not the same one we have just came home from. The air conditioning didnt work all week. We tried to complain but the hosts allegedly didnt speak English and were most unhelpful. The hotel is at the top of a very steep hill unsuitable for disabled... More

My husband and I cannot rate this hotel highly enough. Caterina and Carlo the owners along with their son Alessio could not be any nicer, welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. In fact we feel they are our friends. The hotel is spotlessly clean, our room was wonderful and the private beach is beautiful along with the clean... More

The owners, Caterina and Carlo are the best hoteliers ever. Despite it being off season, they prepared meals every day for us, and offered rides to various villages close by. The hotel room we stayed in was modern, very comfortable, clean, well appointed, and had a gorgeous view. We could hike or visit nearby villages, and then sit and sip... More
