6/10 Good

not easy to access other restaurants, not walkable, beach was not very pretty or swimming area, was not a tourist area and not a lot of activities around hotel.

Sea Views
It was OK, nothing spectacular about this place but again nothing too bad. It was the end of the season, maybe everyone had had enough, the staff didn't really seem too interested and the breakfast was OK. Overall it just felt a bit mediocre. Average value for money.

Hotel is old and tired
Everything was Ok...just Ok. The pool was small but clean, you had to wear a cap. The beach was fine and quite private, but you were assigned beach chairs and there was definitely an honour system in place. The room was small and the mattress poor but typically Italian. The hotel was near nothing but a short drive to town. The parking situation was a little ugly. we got blocked in several times and had to wait 10 to 15 min.

Bellissima esperienza soprattutto per lo staff dell'animazione,straordinari

Verified guest review

8/10 Very good

Hotel accogliente con personale disponibile. Posizionato sul mare e dotato di piscina per bambini, ma piacevole anche per gli adulti. Struttura funzionale per persone con eventuali disabilità, grazie anche all’assistenza continua dei bagnini, sempre disponibili e attenti. Camera standard prenotata tramite expedia, comoda con balcone lato strada, ma bagno molto piccolo con doccia solo per persone “molto magre” e assenza di supporti per detergenti (ci si deve organizzare!). Nonostante un bel lungomare e la spiaggia molto ampia, la zona non offre attività di intrattenimento. Per tale motivo, un plauso speciale va allo Staff dell’animazione presente in Hotel, Federica, Francesca, Michele e Mario, che con gentilezza e simpatia riescono a coinvolgere tutti nelle loro attività, balli, giochi e sketch divertenti, rendendo piacevole la permanenza in hotel.

Et hotel primært for italienske familier
Udemærket hotel, men absolut kun til de 3 stjerner de har. Ikke mange muligheder i nærheden af hotellet. Kun front personalet kunne kommunikere på engelsk.

Unica nota positiva il mare di fronte l'hotel e la pulizia delle camere, tutto il resto è stata un esperienza da dimenticare,lido mal gestito e sporco

10/10 Exceptional

Un paradiso al mare
Personale molto gentile e disponibile. Ristorante ottimo con vista mare. Spaggia molto larga. Stanza pulitissima. Direttamente sul mare ma anche con piscina accogliente. Unica cosa non ottimale è stata la colazione un po' povera ma penso che migliorerà quando sarà possibile farla come buffet
