“An experience we would rather forget”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

The cranky owner made our stay unpleasant and uncomfortable. The miserable mentality is firmly implanted in every aspect of the day to day operations of the hotel. We left early as a result. If you enjoy being treated like an imbecile and accept third rate accomodation in a small and pokey room, then go ahead and treat yourself . The above sentiment was recounted by other guests during our stay. Not worthy of three stars.

Room Tip: Book another hotel.

Great hotel, will definitely be back , excellent location overlooking the beach, the restaurant food and service excellent, we had a side room with big open windows and a view, surprisingly quiet , will book a balcony room next time round, July of course is a extremely busy time of year, however the area copes well with the influx

I have stayed here twice. The hotel is simple but clean. Breakfast plentiful. The location is perfect. One block to train and right on a beautiful beach. The views are stunning. The staff is friendly.
This time we had a medical emergency and the staff was outstanding, compassionate, and kind.

Room Tip: Rooms in front have great views and sound of the ocean can lull you to sleep Can be a little noisy...

We spent three nights at this little piece of paradise in Monterossa and loved every second. What the Baia lacks in luxury, it makes up for in location. The rooms are small, but very clean and air-conditioned. The magnificent view from our balcony and the hospitality of this family owned hotel more than compensate for any luxury that is sacrificed. The train station, private beach, parking, and endless spread of café’s and restaurants provide the perfect setting for any traveller from listless wanderers to family affairs. The staff were incredibly helpful with recommendations for local attractions and hidden gems.

The location is great. Air Conditioning didn't work well but we had a balcony over looking the beach and the breeze was fine. Lot of rude comments but we only experienced that with the older woman who owns the place. She doesn't speak English and gets frustrated and nasty. The daughter and the other workers were fine. Internet only working in the lobby isn't very good it is 2013. Ok place.

I would stay at this place again. The breakfast buffet leaves a lot to be desired and the restaurant staff not overly friendly .however The location is perfect and our room was small but clean and quiet..Air conditioning worked just fine We stayed for two nights but wish we had stayed longer. The internet service only works in the lobby or the restraint but not in your room. top floor facing the water and you cant go wrong

Room Tip: we had the top floor facing the sea it was great. It was a drag the elevator didn't work to ge...

The simple room has a nice terrace with a wonderful view; however, the staff is rude, not very helpful, and the elevator is allowed only for baggage. The rate for a last minute booking is unfairly high.

Room Tip: The view from the third floor is great but there are many stairs to climb
