“Beautiful location - but the premises are awful!”
Reviewed 24 July 2009

We recently stayed in this hotel on the beautiful island of Ponza. The location is spectacular as was the view from our room. Unfortunately, that's all that can be said for this hotel with the potential for being so much more. The rooms were less than clean the floor being particularly stained and downright dirty sometimes. The bathroom was tiny with a minuscule shower. It was difficult to fit two people in there at once. Closet and entry doors had such rusty and delapidated handles that they were difficult to open sometimes. Breakfast was also pretty bad albeit served on a terrace with a lovely view. The furniture was a mismatched mess of plastic and iron. The food was very basic with little choice of fresh bread or juice (don't drink the orange juice!). If you want to have a quiet drink on a spectacular terrace to watch the sunset - bring you own beer! The hotel serves nothing after 6 pm. The hotel cost €175 a night - certainly not a bargain for what you get and has a 3-star rating. Definitely a place I would not return to and what a pity! It could be an absolutely wonderful small hotel to stay in if only someone with professional experience would take it in hand.
