5/5 Excellent

Good for a break

It's an old hotel, clean, close to the beach, very friendly helpful staff and reasonable.

Stayed 3 nights in May 2019

5/5 Excellent

Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Lifts are slow and small. Restaurant is detached from the hotel. But overall, the hotel was saisfactory

Stayed 2 nights in May 2019

4/5 Good

A good mid-range option.

Staff were very friendly and helpful in a pro-active manner. We visited slightly out of season (April) so the local area seemed very quiet with nothing going on. However it is an easy journey to the center.

La spa non funzionava e non eravamo stai avvertiti

4/5 Good

Good Price for the location, friendly staff

Hotel had a few quirks (key didn't work on the second day, housekeeping entered my room without knocking). Breakfast was good, didn't try their fancy restaurant though. Free parking across the hotel. Pro: Staff in general was really nice and spoke good English. Location was right on the beach, my room included a veranda with view of the sea. Con: Pool was closed for renovation. Noisy bathroom piping.

Stayed 5 nights in Mar 2019
