We were staying for a wedding reception held in the hotel. We had booked into an apartment across the road, but when we arrived they felt it was not good enough, at least I think that was the problem. They took us to an apartment 5 minutes walk away, overlooking the bay and we stayed here. We had an amazing view with terrace, rocker swing, sun-loungers, etc. We had a large bedroom, a smaller bedroom area which we used for cases, a large kitchen-dining area fully equipped with cookers, fridge/freezer etc. Good bathroom. We were thrilled, especially when we paid and were charged the same room rate as the other guests.
The hotel staff speak limited English, but we managed to get bottles of wine, coffees etc. when required. The breakfast was adequate - I have had better, but we we got more than good value. Just eat another bread roll or croissant, there were plenty, and they were refilled. We needed to ask for extra coffee, but with the wedding guests being English speaking, I think the hotel were a bit overwhelmed, but they managed brilliantly.
The rooms where some of the guests were staying looked good. The hotel grounds had a swimming pool which was lovely for a swim around. Not Olympic size, but certainly big enough. Sunloungers and chairs around the pool area with parasols. Beautiful gardens, with lemon trees everywhere. Very peaceful pool and garden area.
We were staying for a wedding, which was wonderful. I think the caterers were from a restaurant on the island, but we recognised some of the waiting staff. They worked very hard and you could not fault the hotel or the staff.
The hotel is in the centre of the island. We walked to various restaurants at different ports - maybe 10/15 minute walk. We were expecting the island to be less touristy, and although this maybe the case, it is certainly not less busy. Be warned, scooters and cars chase around the narrow "streets" which are almost allleyways, at such speed. We had several taxi rides to the port area for dinner, you almost had to shut your eyes.
All in all we would recommend the Hotel Savoia - but take your phrase book.
