    The room was not soundproof. You could hear every noises from the corridor, like the dog's barking from somewhere another room.

    The bed and breakfast was great. Good coffee.

    One morning they ran out of butter and the eggs and bacon was missing for 20 minutes.

    Position right by sea. Beach bar was excellent value. Did not try restaurant as there were good value ones nearby.

    Disappointing and not worth the 4 star rating

    The hotel just doesn't meet 4 star expectations. There are no ironing boards available, which was a pain given an entire wedding party stayed there. Instead they provided charged for laundry service. In fact everything required a charge - they didn't provide towels either, they had to be paid for at the pool or at the beach. So did the showers on the beach? The breakfast is a strange choice of a dozen pies and sweets, but only one fruit a day. You can find so much better in italy.

    Not a four star hotel
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Standard Double Room with Hill View
    • Stayed 3 nights

    The room was clean and big, but nothing special. For a four star hotel I would expect more beatiful furniture. The staff wasn't very friendly, and the waiters in the restaurant hardly spoke English. I had to ask twice to get a cup of coffee. The first day we received a voucher to get "free" beach chairs, but finally we had to pay it when we did the check out, it's ridiculous!

    The room was clean, and the location is good, the hotel is next to the beach.

    This hotel is extortionately expensive for what you get. £180 got us one of the most basic rooms I've ever had the misfortune to stay in, the skirting boards were cracked or missing and the tv cupboard was falling apart. The room smelled unpleasantly musty and was very, very noisy as the walls were paper thin. The walls were orange and the safe looked like something from the dark ages. How this is a 4 star hotel is beyond me. The pool area is the only aspect of the hotel that looks vaguely 4 star. We asked to move the next day and were put into a marginally better room, but still not worthy of the price tag. The hotel said that the price was due to the season , however we have stayed in far nicer hotels for less money during our stay here. Avoid this Fawlty Towers like the plague!!!

    Staff at bar, beach, pool, housekeeping are very good. I extended my stay by one day with the front desk and I Thought everything was ok. I was confronted by the manager accusing me of not checking out on time. She was loud and unprofessional and realized her mistake without an apology. I Think she lambasted her staff after I left. I have stayed here for many years and I should have been treated better.

    This is hardly a 4 star hotel. They charge you for anything, even though you don't use it. 3,60 € per day for "service costs" and everyone has to wear a bathing cap. The only right one is the one they sell you for 3 euros. I will not reccomend families with chirldren to stay here. One out of five people working in the reseption spoke english. Overprized bar.
