I very much enjoyed the luxury of this hotel. 1000ft above sea level upon a mountain. Best views and very pretty surroundings.
My review is mixed.
I was amazed by the gardens, the infinity pool, the food and also by the price!
The suites are quite special with great views from your balcony. Nice decor, clean modern yet in keeps with Italian style.
The food at the lunch buffet is so good. Fresh seafood and healthy food I did enjoy and endulge.
The staff round the pool are attentive and friendly.
However I was surprised by this hotel. I hope not to come accross rude but this is quite a romantic secluded special place, then you have very young children running around.
I wouldn't mind that if these particular kids were not such spolit brats!!
For the price per night you would spoil yourself to get away with your partner. We seemed to avoid the pool during the day because we couldn't relax and there was no peace and quiet.
I was also surprised our final bill was charged €600 euros extra for a dinner we never had. This took until I got home to realise and it was hard to resolve. The staff were not at their most helpful.
We got a refund back and no offer of an apology or anything. That's a lot of money!
Also the concierge was rude to us after we cancelled a trip before travelling, and this was not communicated. Not my fault but was angry at his attitude.
I used the spa services and had a massage but it was quite basic nothing special I would rave about.
It is lovely but it is also expensive.
The location is a taxi ride down the mountain to get to restaurants. We had a nice meal out but the food was average.
