    The area lacked things to do in the evenings, with not much to do in town other than the beach and walking the board walk. The shower stall was very small and If you are a larger person, it would be very difficult to get into.

    It was located in the core area and the beach was across the street from Hotel, with umbrella, chairs & towels all included with room. Grocery / Drug stores in immediate area. The board walk was across the road with easy walking along the coast line. The staff was great to deal with and very helpful.

    The hotel is a bit outdated and needs a renovation. Other hotels in the area seem to be offering an overall better lodge. Breakfast was their strong point but this year it seemed to us that it was not as good as in previous years.

    The cakes they offer on their breakfast are great, although this year the selection was not as big as in previous year. Service is good, especially on the breakfast room.

    Very old fashion hotel. Very poor competencies of communication with foreign clients (except at reception). Very poor service given on the beach, priority given to italian people for most confortable place. Difficulties to relax on the beach due to noisy tourist

    Good (modern) windows but still some disturbing street noise at night as the Lungomare street is really very busy, especially on Saturday.

    The seaview suite in the 5th floor was amazing: original interieur (historic style), large balcony, two rooms, three televisions (one in the bathroom),... Also excellent price in the low season and very kind and professional staff.

    Nothing!

    We were given an Ambassador Suite which had a larger room and smaller room within it. The bathroom had two bathrobes and a jacuzzi. The decoration of the room reminded me of the good old times when hotels were fancy experiences and not just a place to sleep. It was furnished with antiques, the walls were covered with cloth instead of paint or wallpaper. It was a delight. Breakfast was awesome and the view from the hotel as well. It has a sauna and a gym, and they are really nice. The personnel were super helpful and willing to provide the best experience. I simply loved it.

    private beach without bar; no drinks or snacks on the beach side, one has to bring himself water and snacks; selfcatered drinks become hot after one hour; the hotel bar is not open in the day, this means that in the day neither at the beach neither at hotel bar one can get cold drinks; by request at reception, some stuff from restaurant from 1st floor comes to the closed bar and offer the cold drink

    Very friendly and usefull stuff; location by the sea wonderfull; promenade great; a lot of good restaurants in vicinity; hotel restaurant : good service, very good food; breakfast reach enough; air conditioning really functional

    Very pure English, there is nothing in English, all information are only in Italian, but all, no English word nowhere in the hotel. Breakfast is pure, very pure for 4* hotel, most of the food is sweet. Beach is extra paid, but there is nothing to enjoy, no bar, no drink water, no attraction.

    great location next to the beach, supermarket next to the hotel and kind personal.

    The hotel is in a poor location for tourists, is stuck in a historical time warp, had poor wifi connectivity which dropped off repeatedly and had no English language news programming available on the hotel TV system. Parking is limited and lacking security. We left one day early largely as a result of the Customer experience of the hotel and lack of local facilities
