We were very excited about staying here. As no.1 of B and Bs in Ponza we were led to expect a quality experience. The good bit - the location with views over the sea. But the rest was very disappointing: the walk up each evening quite tough up steep hill - but we were there in a heatwave. Breakfast very poor , no juice, croissants or cereal as promised on website. No hot water for first eve and morning - owner forgot to switch it on! Breakfast served in owner's back patio with no view at all. Outside area very scruffy and dirty - didn't see anyone using area with view ever over the 3 days we were there. No shampoo or shower gel provided until we asked on third day and were provided with the remains of a family shampoo bottle. No beach towels or bathrobes provided. I raised these queries with the owner who was rather evasive about the promises contained in the English website. But as an Italian speaker, i knew the promises were also on the Italian version. I do suspect the italian reviews but just wish I had read the poor reviews as I would never choose this again - especially at 110 Euros - daylight robbery.
