My wive and I visited the hotel from 13th till the 22nd of June 2011. We were very pleased with the overall service of the hotel. We've booked an superior room and stayed in the anex building and had sea view. Very nice room and very quiet also. I may say a very high standard is followed for all the rooms. For the Dutch and Belgian customers there is a contact foreseen who speakes our language, Nathalie from the reception. Minor point for me, is that the bathtub is very small, especially for guy's who are a little bit bigger.
Once you've passed the reception hall you can enjoy the magnificant view from all the terrace's. Wonderful view, one of the most spectacular I have ever seen !
Restaurants are quite good, didn't have lunch here. Breakfast is outstanding !!!! If you go and have dinner in the hotel restaurant you can enjoy the magnificant views and good food, altough not cheap. I have paid once around 250€ and another time around 220€ for 2 people. Alternative is to eat in local restaurants in town (La Terazza, La Giara, Granduca, La Botte (very traditional). Nice beach when you go to the sister hotel Sant Andrea.
