My husband and I adored this place!
Yes the room was old fashioned, the shower was small and English was not widely spoken, but the staff are incredibly friendly, the pools are truly amazing and the restaurant is fabulous.
There are some inconveniences; the resort is surrounded by main roads, and it is extremely difficult to walk to anywhere outside. Taxis can be easily booked from the hotel, but they are very difficult to find once you are out - you must pre book.
The restaurant is good, hearty Italian food. Pizzas are great! But it is closed on Mondays, and on the week we went, it was closed on Saturday for a wedding. On the Saturday, they sat us down, before the wedding party arrived and made us Pizza, and on the Monday, one of the staff drove us to another local restaurant and gave us his number so that we could call him to pick us up after dinner!
The only breakfast we found was croissants and muffins in the bar, and similarly lunch was mini pizza or pastries from the bar. At weekend, there was a lunch buffet served al fresco.
This is a busy country club with great facilities for the active amongst you! On Tuesday night as we were eating our dinner, the tennis courts and gym were full, the basketball court was hosting dozens of rollerskating youngsters, and there was a very well attended salsa dance class in the downstairs studio which we could watch whilst we were eating.
This is not a glossy chain hotel - far from it. But if you want a slice of the real Italy, and are prepared to put up with a couple of inconveniences, then I can't recommend it highly enough.
