Sehr schönes Hotel direkt am Meer
Sehr schönes Hotel mit guter Lage....tolle Meerblickzimmer und sehr gutes Frühstück mit grosser Auswahl. Einzige Problem sind die Parkplätze, da nur öffentliche Parkplätze zur Verfügung stehen.

8/10 Very good

Ottimo.... tranne un dettaglio colazione
Struttura nuova, ben organizzata e ottimo livello pulizia. La posizione è fantastica di fronte ai faraglioni, camere ampie..... tutto perfetto MA TROVO VERAMENTE POCO QUALIFICANTE che una struttura di questo tipo abbia per la colazione (peraltro variegata e molto valida) le infernali macchinette automatiche per la caffetteria. Come perdersi..... in un bicchier d'acqua....
