Good location and our spacious and comfortable room had an excellent view of the sea. Bed was good but when we asked for down pillows they could not offer this. Bathroom was good with shower in the tub but still OK. Breakfast was better than usual in Italy with a good choice of eggs and bread. Turn down at night could be better as one of our shoes had left a pile of sand on the carpet which was still there when we came home at night. Top floor had a breakfast and snack restaurant with magnificent views but it could certainly benefit from a slightly more comprehensive menu for those who did not feel for going up to town every day. Ground floor bar was gloomy and not very inviting and the Internet system of giving guests codes with 1 hour duration seems cumbersome and unneccessary. Finallly the staff was friendly and great and I would gladly recommend this hotel.
