I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. I was attending a conference held at the hotel. The hotel is high up in the mountains and so usually you get nice hot weather with breezes. However, most of the time was quite cold, rainy and with thunderstorms. There is a popular outdoor swimming pool. The hotel is fairly isolated and it is a long walk down hill (cca 5km). The view from the restaurant´s terrace at breakfast or lunch is superb.
Breakfast, lunches and dinners included a wide range of dishes (mainly Italian food: meat, pasta and a lot of salads) which I enjoyed trying. The desserts were delicious. The breads were tasty but bread crust was like a rock (a little bit dangerous for your gingivae). Otherwise there was a good range of fruit juices.
My room was away from the main hotel so you needed an umbrella when it rained. The room was air conditioned but was not working all the time because of the colder weather. There were a very good shower gel, shampoo and lotion. The conference facilities were very good, but for coffee breaks not enough snacks (mainly some sweets).
