The Decameron is in a stunning location on a completely unspoiled and beautiful beach stretching for miles. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and nearly all of the one or two storey bungalow style rooms have sea views and being so close to the ocean you can hear the waves if you leave your door open - although that would be unwise at night for reason given below.
Things you need to know : 1) this is not all inclusive as your brochures would lead you to believe - you have to pay €2 for a bottle of water. 2). Get a safety deposit box - we were there 9 days and in that time there were 6 robberies ( that we knew about) and one of these involved a elderly couple in their 80s and the thieves burgled them while they were in bed. For that reason it is unwise to sleep with your patio doors open unless you are in a two story room.
3) the staff can b incredibly rude - we have had waiter suck his teeth at us, menu's thrown at us by the head waitress of the Ala Carte restaurant ( as we had the audacity to pick our own table instead of doing as we were told!!) and really bad service and attitude from another waiter in the dining halls who took real dislike to us for some reason
4). The food is average to poor , bland at best and a lot of It was over cooked and dry. Lunchtime menu was generally much better than the evenings we found.
5) I know this is important to some people which is why I mention it - this is a French speaking hotel and only about 10% of the guests are Brits with the rest being French along with some other European countries.
Basically this is a wannabe 4 star hotel but barely scrapes through as a 3 star. It lets itself down with rude staff, lack of security provision and mediocre food. Probably would not stay here again
