This hotel is a mixed bag. It is a very grand old hotel situated beautifully on perhaps one of the loveliest coastlines along the Italian Riviera with a very large garden behind the hotel. Some signs of age are apparent as well as the wear and tear from the salt air and humidity. We were given one very large and comfortable room and one tiny room that stunk of body odor and mildew. The saltwater pool is gorgeous and large with an attentive pool man. The breakfast, served on the terrace overlooking the sea, is ample and tasty. Housekeeping and the waitstaff are very attentive and hardworking. After arriving late to the hotel close to 11pm, we were hungry. The kitchen was closed and there was virtually no room service, so the concierge made us a reservation at a restaurant that turned out to be not so great. We saw that it was mostly empty the entire weekend, validating our experience of it. We enjoyed the older Italians playing cards on the terrace in the evening while a lovely duo entertained. It was a great vibe while enjoying the view and aperitivo. We had a lovely stay and would return making sure to request an updated room.
