We stayed in this hotel for a couples break in July. The hotel is lovely and very old fashioned Italian.
Check in was very simple and the staff were really nice. Our room was on the second floor and we had a balcony with a sea view. The room was small but nicely decorated with airconditioning and a mini bar, the ensuite was spotlessly clean - but was small (my only complaint).
This hotel has the most fantastic outdoor pool but is also across the road from the beach. In this area of Italy you have to pay to get on the beach and rent a parasol and deck chair. The hotel had a deal with the facility opposite it for 2 deck chairs and a parasol for 20 Euros (if you want a sunbed it was another 15 Euros) you pay for this at the hotel. The pool is large with plenty of sun loungers and best of all there was no placing of towels allowed to reserve loungers as the pool opens at 9.30 when people are allowed in the area and not before.
Breakfast was included in our room rate and was served in what looked like a lovely old ballroom. It was good quality food. We never ate diner in the hotel as there are plenty of restaraunts along the sea front to chose from but expect to pay at least 50 Euros for a meal for 2 people.
This hotel was fantastic for a romantic break. It has a very relaxed atmosphere but also one of great elegance.
Having stayed in probably over a hundred hotels in my life. This hotel is one that I now rate in my top 3 favorites and I plan on returning there as soon as I can.
