My husband picked this hotel because it was close to the beach (50m or less walk) and the price was reasonable. We did not anticipate luxury, and found exactly what we expected given the 2 star rating; a pleasant small hotel, across the road from the beach (although he view was blocked by the outbuilding of the Excelsior hotel). A buffet breakfast included boiled eggs, plain or fruit yoghurt ham or salami, watered down juice, apricot filled croissants and a variety of biscuits and cheap cakes. There was little that felt genuinely welcoming, or thoughtful: inexplicably in a country with numerous regional cheeses, figs , grapes peaches and tomatoes, only apples were available in the hotel. The attractive light and airy dining room had an odd aura of purgatory, with mute couples staring silently into the distance. Staff were generally efficient, though without any great sense of warmth or human interest, and failed to inform us of the huge firework display for august 15th, which really was unmissable. No tea, coffee or drinks available on the terrace in the evening, and no meals available on site. Very far from the warm welcome and lavish breakfast celebrated in other reviews on this site; but reasonable small hotel, good as a base for visiting the Lido and Venice.
