We ended our tour of Italy with a wonderfully relaxing stay at this intimate hotel. We had a suite with a terrace that overlooked the sea and hotel gardens and the interior decoration was elegant. I think that what separates this hotel from others of a similar quality is the service, which is personal and helpful without being obsequious. Front of house are delightful and especially Simona and the man with the beautiful eyes whose name I didn't catch. Housekeeping staff are friendly and Mary who works on the terrace is delightful and genuinely cares about your needs. In a friendly and helpful island the staff here are still remarkable. We had dinner here and that was delicious, the sea views from the terrace are wonderful. The Byzantine bar has an unsettling ambience with the presence of the catacombs, but it all adds to the atmosphere and the silver huge heads are fantastic. I can't recommend this establishment enough and we luckily saved the best to last.
