Great stay, and the staff were amazing. Big thanks and kudos to Orsula, she helped us translate and book reservations, and went above and beyond for us. Will definitely come back, grazie mille!

8/10 Very Good

The staff were very friendly, helpful, and hospitable - especially Anna and Alfonso. We really enjoyed the sea view from the room as well as the upstairs terrace. We would recommend that the breakfast be served on this terrace instead of on the lower dining area. The breakfast food was not of high quality, sometimes not fresh; perhaps the hotel should reduce the variety of breakfast food options in favour of better quality. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is centrally located with beautiful views of the ocean. The staff is super helpful and go above and beyond to ensure that your stay is pleasant. They helped arrange multiple trips and drivers and recommended great places to see. Breakfast is included and the spread was amazing with fresh fruit and pastries. We also ate at the restaurant for dinner and the food was delicious. We cannot recommend this hotel enough!

The staff are so wonderful! They really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We loved the breakfast, the free e-bikes and location (the town is quiet but there are great day trips to nearby beaches and towns). The rooms are spacious and the aircon is lovely!
