“"Incredible Staff"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2009

This is a very good hotel. Value for money/quality - the best. The magnificent view from the room at Salerno. Good beach. We rested here a week. What didn't like - the hotel staff. On the beach (a boy doesn't even know "hello" and towels he gave after 10 minutes!), in a restaurant (you need 10 times beckon a waiter, but once we put only one-third portion of spaghetti with caviar! - unheard of) and especially the reception - very angry and ungracious womans . From the hotel experience is as enjoyable, as disgusting experience of its staff.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2009

The rooms and facilities are ok, the view is magnificant. 2 of the staff are friendly. But when we left, not a single friendly word was uttered. Important: there is safe parking space and often a guard who is helpful and friendly. The beautiful restaurant was for weddings only. Dinner was served in the breakfast room, which is good for breakfast, but lacks a nice atmosphere for dinner. None of the guests come out for a drinks on the terrace in the evening or afternoon. There is no music, no happy hour, no fun, no atmosphere. The lads at the beach supply a towel and have a lazy day - no drinks offered if you don't go and ask. There is a very limited choice of drinks anyway at the beach bar. e.g. no cola light, no capuchino, etc.... and they don't care.
The balcony was not clean when we arrived.
Wedding guests dropped cigarette butts on our balcony table almost in my glass - disgusting!
The railing of the above situated terrace is used contantly used as an ashtray for - daily ashes on table and chairs. The dripping of the airco (broken hose) and the noise of two aircons made our balcony an even more unpleasant place to enjoy the beautiful view.
