I was given 2 nights at this resort as a birthday gift. Even though it was a groupon, it was an excellent choice of hotels. My friend paid a little extra to get us a suite which was a nice treat and well worth it. She had purchased half board and we were curious to see how the restaurant would do on that groupon plan. No regrets! Our waiter was absolutely friendly and though there were 'only' 2 choices of 1st and 2nd course each, food was exquisite. Plus they had an appetizer buffet which in itself would have sufficed as dinner since there was so much to choose from.
A large selection of cakes, cereals, breads also for breakfast. I am not a sweet tooth and for me there only was some ham and cheese and I ordered an egg overeasy. However, staff was very accommodating here as well and when I asked about sth else salty on the buffet, sth like salmon, she said Italians don't ask for that but she would see what she could do for me. The next morning she brought me a platter of smoked salmon!!! Thank you very much!
Really the only negative point I would have to make has nothing to do per se with the hotel. It's about sauna etiquette. I am originally German and used to going to the sauna covered up with a towel but basically naked. Never are any body parts supposed to come in contact with the wood you are sitting/ laying on or resting your feet on. Here the mostly Italian guests came in bathing suits; some even wearing bathing caps but putting their feet and sometimes more than that onto the benches, dripping sweat. I made a comment to the supervisor about that when I overheard a young apprentice giving a new couple a tour through the wellness area and her stating they would not have to use a towel whatsoever. At least the next day with another couple she told them to use a towel at all times. I think it would help to have towels readily available in the wellness area and not just that one they put in the rooms. Having mentioned that, I'd also like to add that bathrobes and slippers are in the room as well. Also nice selection of bathroom amenities available.
