If you are looking for the typical Italian beach vibe, then this hotel is a good choice. If you are looking for something more reserved, this is absolutely the wrong idea. Unfortunately, we were looking for the latter, booked last minute for one night and were quite dissapointed. The rooms are clean and, although not modern, in decent shape. The breakfast buffet is ok, not too many options but enough to fill your tummy. A definite plus was the omlet bar where you could create your own omlet, have it prepared fresh and served at the table. Generally the reception staff is very friendly, the staff is the breakfast room seems a little overworked but ok.
Regarding the beach, appartently there is a cooperation with one of the private beaches; so instead of paying 30EUR per day (umbrella, 2 chairs, one sunbed) you pay 25...not a big deal if you are there for a short stay. The beach is packed and overpacked, as a tourist you get the worst seat and if you try and lay next to the chairs you are kicked out.
All in all, decent hotel, horrible beach, overpacked town.
