We have been staying in the hotel together with friends (all together 8 adults and 8 kids). We booked together and when we arrived we asked if it would be possible for us to sit together for breakfast and dinner. After the third day we gave up and at least tried to sit in two groups of 8. The owners are simply not interested in their guests. You clearly get the impression that the best guest should be - that is at least how we where treated - quiet and not asking for anything outside their "normal" hospitality (which is: "Hey you are lucky you got a room, man!" , "Any other thing - forget it".)
Can you believe that you have to pay your stay on the day before you leave either between 14:00 and 16:00 (when everyone is on the beach) or between 19:30 and 20:30 (which is the only time that you can get your dinner, which is strictly between 19:00 and 20:00).
But on the other hand. Don't try to stay in the "restaurant" longer than 20:10 because the staff will aggressively start cleaning your table (actually they will start "cleaning the table" at around 19:45 - so don't even consider to even get into the restaurant later than 19:30!!) and especially the tables around you while throwing looks at you that clearly state: "Get the f*** out of here". Regarding the food? If you think Italy always equals delicious food - well here you learn that obviously also standard german food can be prepared in an italian kitchen. So overall - maybe OK if you expect german "Ordnung" and strict and unfriendly staff. For everyone else - maybe consider going somewhere else.
P.S.: Thinking of leaving later than 10:00 am on the day you leave? - because an additional day on the beach would be cool for the kids. - No way - not here - you of course cannot use the hotel to get a shower before you leave or leave your luggage somewhere in the hotel. Departure Day means - for the owners at least - happy that these guys are gone, at least they left good money.
