“Good for Business and Pleasure”
Reviewed 23 April 2008

I stay here regularly on business. There is cable internet access in every room. It's a bit fiddly to set up but ask reception for their instruction sheet and a cable, follow the instructions to the letter and you'll be fine.

The rooms are spacious and clean with TV, Bath/Shower, Air Con and Mini Bar.

The hotel is easy to find from the autostrada and it has a good location opposite the beach. It has its own pool.

Breakfast is good - at least by Continental standards! Bacon and eggs plus an omelette chef, selection of pastries, fruit and juices - basically everything you need for a good hearty brekker.

Dinner at the hotel is good and there are also a variety of other good restaurants (as if any in Italy are actually bad!) nearby. The Bar (a Piano Bar) is very pleasant.

The staff speak reasonably good English and are helpful and friendly. I would certainly recommend the hotel for business travellers but would also be quite happy to spend a couple of nights here for leisure.

  • Liked — Ticks all the boxes
  • Disliked — The energy efficient lighting - know it's a great idea environmentally, but it's a lttle un-nerving when you are waiting for a lift!

Reviewed 9 September 2007

We stayed there for three nights. The hotel room (and bathroom) was very spacious with nice furniture and we had a nice view over the beach and sea (we did not have the direct seafront rooms with balcony). Breakfast was very good choice and quality (just refills of bread, eggs, etc. were not very quick).
Parking is available around the hotel, garage would have been 15 EUR extra. Internet access (in the hall) is free of charge.
Our package (with the German tour operator) included the beach service (1 parasol and 2 deckchairs) which was good as this is normally really expensive. We were surprised to see that the beach still has really old and uncomfortable deckchairs (sunbeds only at extra charge of approx. 6 EUR/day). I would not want to stay there in the high season when all deckchairs are occupied!
But for three days in the lower season it was ok. Same applies for the town, we missed atmosphere (and friendly staff) that we had found in other places.

Reviewed 17 March 2007

Stayed in this hotel for one night during March 2007. We traveled through the region and just walked in at 11PM and got a room for 160 EUR/night. This is a four-star hotel and we felt that the amenities and the hotel's breakfast could be described exactly like that. One big drawback: we arrived during an out-of-season period so the room was not ventilated well. We could smell mold and were both caughing really bad in the morning.
