First impressions were good - the location is great with amazing views of the valle dei templi. But from thereon nothing stood out. The hotel restaurant is a dull pastiche of five star clichés - with one a wall covered by bottles of big name champagne (what about the prosecco, guys?). Our room is nice enough - we had a suite (202) with nice views but nothing in particular to stay in the memory. The biggest disappointment was the bland and disinterested service - you'd be much better off staying at the wonderful Mandranova and visiting the valle dei templi on a day trip.
