We arrived by bus on a Sunday afternoon the first week in September and stayed for 5 nights. When we first arrived, Marco was at the front desk and he was very nice and helpful. He had our luggage taken to our room and gave us recommendations to grab a snack at International Bar to hold us over until dinner. He made reservations for us for that evening at Il Ritrovo (one of the best meals of our trip) and arranged for us to be picked up for dinner. He continued to be very helpful and sweet for the rest of our stay there. We were in room 202 - small view of the sea, tennis courts, and pool area. Although the hotel is a bit of a maze due to it's location on a mountain, it's not difficult to figure out if you can read signs IMO. The carpets are dingy but the room we had was nice and clean. The annoying thing was that we requested to not receive housekeeping and the room was cleaned anyway. Also, we are a healthy young couple and can handle steps and this place has a lot of them and there are a lot of steps in order to get down to the town center as well. Certain staff there are indifferent but there are others who really do go out of their way to remember your name and room number and try to be helpful. Colombo, for example, walked us up to the main road to meet the driver who was to pick us up for another dinner reservation, La Tagliata, another great meal. BTW, swim caps for the pool cost 3.50 euro per person and they tell you when you check in that you will be charged if you get them (and so we did not). All in all, I think it's a worthwhile place because we got a decent deal (170 USD/night) for a spectacular and convenient location (near the bus stop) and breakfast with a view was included. OH, one last thing, they need to fix their WiFi set up. It's a mess - it does not work throughout their hotel. The best thing is to do all your WiFi use at breakfast if you can. Call the front desk to get the code, sign in, and use your ipad or device while eating breakfast.
