I knew that it did not augur well when our bags were dumped unceremoniously at the bottom of the flight of steps leading up to our suite. It only got worse. Much worse.
The pool(the best thing about this hotel)is unmanned for a few hours over lunch when the staff has a siesta.No cool drinks then and no poolside meals at all thus driving you into the expensive and unattractive restaurant.
The place is run shambolically. Where else in Italy does breakfast stop on the dot of 10 and lunch on the dot of 2? Where else would you see a dead bird caught in some netting for it still to be there three days later? And it's expensive. This is a sham. A third rate hotel masquerading as a first.
If you do decide to take a visit,do yourself a favour and eat in Il Castello in Brucoli.
