In many ways I can only echo the excellent comments that other reviewers have put about the Piccolo. It is the epitome of a family-run hotel with caring, helpful friendly staff treating you really as guests and providing high-quality, authentic local food. We have had a wonderful week-long family holiday at the Piccolo, and a word of praise in passing for the Crystal reps who were efficient in their organisation.
However, do realise
a) There is no air con - but the ceiling fans were fine despite 35 degree heat.
b) There's no pool or lounge - but since you're right on the waterfront, who needs it?
c) No pizza - but why worry about that?
d) Breakfast is fine - albeit limited to high quality 'continental' basics
If you want a soul-less international-style hotel that could be anywhere, Piccolo isn't it.
On the other hand, if you want an authentic, welcoming, local experience, and one in the words of Lord Coe that "does it right", then the Piccolo's the place to go!
