We stayed here for 6 nights on the last leg of our honeymoon trip and I had been looking forward to it for ages, as it was recommended to us by someone who had stayed there the previous summer. What a beautiful place. The terrace bar and the pool are great, but rooftop jacuzzi area is amazing and seemed little used so we got it to ourselves a lot of the time. The clubhouse is fantastic, nothing better than being on the bathing platform and then popping up for a salad or pizza from the wood fired oven and a glass of wine.
Concierge service made trips to Pompeii and to the airport super easy via private car. A rather more pleasant way to travel than by local taxi - some scary driving on some seriously narrow roads!!!
Breakfast is worth a special mention, fantastic. Great fresh fruit and eggs to order.
On the slightly less positive note, I was slightly upset on arrival that, although we had advised them it was our honeymoon, they clearly hadn't noted it, or didn't mention it. The note in the room was addressed to my husband 'and guest.' Also our room was rather smaller than photos had led us to believe, and very thin walls meant we had the pleasure of not only listening to our own toilet constantly refilling throughout the night, but our neighbour's too! These things are all that stopped it getting a five for me. Stunning place.
