Let's start with the positives: the good news for Trip Advisor fans is that the surcharge for an extra breakfast coffee and the prohibition for storing items not purchased from the hotel in the room mini bar (criticised by previous Trippers) are things of the past. Further good news is that the hotel site inspires poetry; the hotel building, decor and furnishings (in classical Italianate style) justify the romantic epithet in the hotel's name and the staff are both efficient and friendly. The restaurant also offers a choice of dishes, freshly prepared, if unspectacular. What then is the problem? This is ostensibly a four star hotel with, however, neither pool nor sun-lounging area (there's a substitute shared pebble beach across the main road and some100 metres down a steep incline). Additionally, there's neither wellness nor other leisure facilities that are today commonly standard in this category of seaside hotel (and indeed available in neighbouring Acquafredda and Maratea properties). For the money (194 € for a double room with sea view, non-high season) we would also have expected, at a minimum, a complementary bowl of fruit and/or mineral water in the room and, ideally, something special rather than the saucer of tired sweets provided. We also paid 15 € per night for our dog with the request from the hotel management on arrival that he remain practically inaudible and invisible during our stay. There is, though,a hopeful postscript: we understand that this winter's extensive hotel renovation plans include construction of an outside 15m x 8m swimming pool offering the opportunity to correct the current pricing.Viator Coloniae
