Stayed at the Albatros on a school trip (one of 5 teachers escorting 35 9-10-11 year olds on 5 day 4 night trip to Pompeii/Herculaneum etc.) Feel some of the reviews are somewhat unfair - the hotel was clean if shabby (holes in sheets and cigarette burns on blankets) and furniture is cheap and dated. However, rooms are reasonably spacious and everything worked - hot water for showers and reading lights etc. all fine. Hotel staff were reasonably helpful and efficient getting the group in and out each day and making sure we knew where out coach was. What really was not good, however, was the food. V. sad to be in Italy and surrounded by orange and lemon groves and only have reconstituted powdered orange juice for breakfast. Also watery instant coffee from a machine!!! Our 'packed lunches' involved 2 or 3 white bread rolls with procesed cheese or ham and a dried up apple - no other fruit and heaps of carbs. dinner was a generous dish of pasta - which was fine, all kids eat pasta - followed by a 'meat' course - meat obviously frozen chicken or pork based and then reconstitutes and potatoes - not a green vegetable for the whole time - and tiny, inedible 'erzatz' dessert. I understand that they are working on tiny budgets but surely they could have done better than this! Location poor for school group, too as no outside space at all. Would not be prepared to take a group there again unless I could be assured that the food was going to be better!
