“Quiet, boutique hotel - good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2009

We stayed here for 5 nights in July. The hotel is small, but the rooms are clean and comfortable with a nice balcony. However, the bathroom was not brilliant, the shower tended to flood the bathroom floor. When we first arrived at the pool we thought it was nice and shaded with trees and a small bar. However, by the afternoon it was crowded with families from a nearby campsite. We drove to a nearby beach for the rest of the holiday. The restaurant in the hotel was closed in the evening but we could book into the restaurant of the sister hotel (Hotel Napoleana) which was absolutely amazing. We had a table overlooking the sea, wonderful fresh food, and reasonably priced. We went to this restaurant twice but wish we had gone more times! The Excelsior hotel is in a good location, a short walk from some lovely restaurants on the beach. Overall we had a nice relaxing break and I would always recommend Italy as it is the best for food and people!
