I don't ever recall staying in a hotel and being told what I can and can't do in my own room that we've paid to stay in. That was until staying here.
Stayed here as part of our honeymoon in May, the owner (as other people have stated) was creepy and I caught checking out my wife a few times. I let it go, no point getting upset over that, esp while we were guests and didn't want to risk anything being taken from our rooms. The hotel has numerous rules that contradict themselves to stop guests bringing in their own food and drink, one reason was because it brings in an influx of ants, another was because festivities go on too late and can get rowdy which bother other guests, but then go on to say that food and drink can be purchased from the hotel to consume in the room and that breakfast can be ordered to the room.
The room itself was large (we stayed in one of the suites) with a sofa and a balcony overlooking the water and partial view of Amalfi.
One thing that REALLY bothered us however was there was a window in the side of the room with blinds that did not shut without being held shut by something (I ended up using my suitcase to hold them shut). The MAJOR issue with this was that directly outside the room there was an unlit outside stairwell that had a direct view of anyone coming in or out of the bathroom. This was a massive invasion of our privacy.
The bathroom really was nothing special at all, the soap in the wash basin and shower being soap dispensers and there was mould growing above the shower.
Not one to be put off by the contradictory rules, the creepy hotel manager or the invasion of privacy we enjoyed quite a few drinks on the balcony and left the bottles and cans in the bin in the room when we checked out, our little way of flicking the bird to them.
Avoid at all costs.
