8/10 Very good

Week end say
Hotel is clean and confortable. But over all ambiance look more like a group Holliday hotel rather than a 4stars hotel. No bar at the beach or swimming pool… a bit disapointing.

Nice getaway
Hotel room was comfortable. Balcony is small and you can barely see the sea. Dinner was good with different set of choices per night. Parking was easy and secure. Pools and the area were nice and comfortable.

Totally relaxing seaside holiday
Exceptional service, clean and comfortable room, large pool, well laid out and attractive garden. Breakfast selection large and good quality, eaten on terrace with sea view, coffee freshly made. Lack of a balcony compensated by exclusive use of clothes dryer on a separate balcony opposite our room. One suggestion for the beach platforms would be to extend them beyond the the rocks, giving access to the sea directly by ladder - we found it slippery clambering over the rocks to get out.

We had a wonderful time. Lovley rooms, lovely accomodation, great service, Anna on the reception was extremly nice and helping. Some points for approvements: the pool should be cleaned more, and the breakfast lack salads. Overall it was good value for money and I reccomend.

8/10 Very good

We stayed four nights here and were lucky to have a room at the front with a sea view. The bed was extremely comfy and the room and bathroom spotlessly clean and aircon very efficient. The private “beach” (actually man-made platforms on the rocks with sun loungers) across the road is lovely with friendly lifeguards and great access to the crystal clear water. Top tip: bring rock shoes as the going is rather tough getting into the water! We borrowed free bikes from reception staff(very helpful and friendly) and rode each night to Santa Catarina al Bagno where there’s a small number of excellent restaurants to chose from. (Favourite: Art Nouveau). Only took off one star because of the lack of any extraction in the bathroom (there is a windows least) and the strange playing of music all night in the corridors outside rooms.
