Stayed here for one night while visiting family nearby. Hotel was clean, rooms were large, and service was excellent. Would recommend requesting a room opposite the side where the pool is as this gets very noisy at night even in cool weather. Ate at the restaurant for dinner and the food was excellent.

We picked this hotel because it was near the sea and we wanted to spend the last days of our vacation on a beautiful beach, which we did! But this was not the only reason why we loved our stay here. First of all the beach is right across the street (there is a tunnel from the hotel parking lot to the beach) and it was perfect! Then they have a huge swimming pool (not kidding, you can actually swim laps) with a perfect view of the mountains. The restaurant next to the hotel is also amazing. We ate there almost every night (great seafood! The mussels in white wine sauce is definitely a must!!) and had a great time. The staff was very friendly.
Our room was spacious and modern with a balcony. The breakfast was ok, not continental, but typically Italian with lots of sweets, canned fruit and coffee. The croissants were warm out the oven, so if you don't know what to get, go for those! Oh, and there were a lot of weddings while we stayed there ( I think there was a wedding party every night), so you might want to get a room with a view to the street.

We loved our stay at the hotel! We arrived before check-in and enjoyed a delicious lunch at their outside restaurant. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the decor is kept up to date. The pool area was very nice but needed more chairs. There was a private poolside event that carried on late into the night, but our rooms were on the opposide side of the building so we did not hear much of the noise. The property is beautiful and easy to locate right off of a main road. Plenty of free parking on site. Great value and a great stay!!

If you want a quiet night and sleep, avoid this hotel. We were booked here for 4 nights and given a poolside room. The noise from the pool area carried on well into the early hours of the morning, keeping us awake for most of the night. When we did get to sleep, the lawn care staff woke us at 7 am by running their lawn mowers. We had the balcony doors open to let fresh air in the room because the A/C wouldn't work. When we asked the front desk about the A/C, we were told that it was 'being fixed'. No apologies, no concern for the uncomfortable and sickening heat in our room. On the second night of no A/C, we were once again kept awake by the constant noise from the pool area and from a large group of teenagers who were allowed to be noisy throughout the hotel well past midnight. At 1 am, after finally falling asleep, we were driven out of our bed by fireworks that the hotel had decided to set off. Startled, hot and angry by the continuing noise in the hotel, we never got back to sleep. We checked out of our hotel the next morning, furious that the hotel staff didn't care more about their guests. The breakfast wasn't that good, and their staff were to that friendly. We would never stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't stay here unless you like to be awake all night.

Hi i'm Rosario from conciergerie I'm sorry to tell you that we didn't receive complains about these problems , never with air conditioning never with noise loudly of kids in the floor in these last period . can you tell us who was at the reception when you did these complains?i'm really sorry and with my hotel manager we thought to offer you an holiday for four days when you prefer.
i have just a question why you did 5 reviews all togheter in the same day of different stay ? did you a tour or are you indipendent tourist ? if you came with a group can i speak with your agency?if you are indipendent can you give me your e-mail to send my offer? i 'm sorry for these questions but we cannot understand who you are! it's so strange for us!

Stayed for three nights this week and have stayed here before. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. The staff very friendly and welcoming. We have enjoyed a wonderful holiday here in the summer months too relaxing on their beautiful beach. Very highly recommended the Kennedy and it's also great value too!

Room Tip: All the rooms have a nice view but the pool view rooms are particularly nice in summer.

We stayed here for two nights. The room was large enough, we had a balcony with a nice view on the beach, but you can easily hear noises from the corridors. Good location, easy to find. Good breakfast, especially when they served fresh orange juice. Nice hotel for a good value.
