The hotel is in a great position. You can hear the sound of the sea from your room. The road which takes to the hotel is a dead end, so there is almost no traffic.
The nearest ATM is 3km from Cavoli, so you want to make sure that you have enough cash before you start your holidays in Cavoli.
The hotel offers private parking (not covered, which can be a problem during summers).
The hotel does not provide Internet connection, but you can find a FON spot (www.fon.com) exactly on the beach in front of the hotel.
Cavoli is a small beach, half free, half private. It's really enjoyable. There is not much to do except for swimming and catching sun. It's good to get some relax.
La Conchiglia is a 2 star hotel: that means you won't get fresh towels everyday - as they kindly remind you on the front door of the bathroom - and you have limited choice in restaurant and bar.
Our room was very clean but had really poor furniture (as you can see from the pictures).
The towels were extremely poor quality.
Hotel staff in general were very nice with us, with the only exception of the woman at the reception. It looked like she had problem to understand me, even if I'm a native speaker! Good luck trying to communicate with her in English :)
Breakfast was italian-style, if you are looking for a continental breakfast you'll be deeply disappointed: tea, coffee, cappuccino, orange juice, cornflakes, croissant, 2 kinds of biscuits. That's it.
I'm italian and I like this kind of breakfast, but it may look strange for foreigners.
During breakfast, you are asked to choose what you'd like to have for lunch and/or dinner.
You can choose between 3 kinds of first course and 3 kinds of second course.
Even if the choice is limited, I must say that the quality of restaurant is definitely high. We really enjoyed our meals at the hotel.
We payed about 100eur per day for a double room with half-service. You can only choose between half-service and full-service.
In my opinion the price is quite high considering that it's a 2 star hotel. I accepted to pay this "premium" price only because it's located literally a few meters from the beach.
What I liked of this hotel: location and restaurant
What I didn't like: the towels, the furniture of the room, the price
