We booked into the Locanda based on photos and Tripadvisor recommendations. When we arrived, I thought we must have been at the wrong location. Apart from the front facade, nothing was as was pictured. Our apartment smelled musty and wasn't very clean. There was a kitchen table but no chairs. No towels. We had to request them and what we got were old scratchy dull from wear towels, one each and no face cloths or hand towels. Beds consisted of a foam slab with mismatched, well worn linens. Both kitchen and bathroom had a single handle faucet with one temperature-lukewarm.
Our apartment faced the courtyard which seemed to have a constant stream of delivery trucks idling during the day so a siesta was out of the question and during the night the campgrounds in behind kept us awake.
We checked out the next morning forfeiting our 50% deposit for the week. Could not bear another moment there. Found a much better hotel further down the beach at a similar rate.
