The positives of this hotel are the excellent service (although a couple of the receptionists could learn from the rest of the staff), the friendly atmosphere, the location, the cleanliness (this includes the pool area and the beach). The enthusiasm of the animations team who organised the children's activities was infectious and Davide, who spoke a little English, was very popular with my grandson. The pool is a bit deep for young children, but with armbands the non swimmers or novice swimmers were fine. I was impressed with the level of vigilance of the lifeguards (the salvataggio) round the pool and the beach, any overexuberance by youngsters was immediately stopped. They were also very good and finding the items I had invariably left round the pool or on the beach! A little knowledge of Italian is useful here, or a phrasebook. The last reviewer mentioned the standard of the food and complained of pasta appearing on the menu regularly. Pasta will always appear on all Italian menus in the "primi" part of the meal, and we enjoyed most of the dishes. My grandson is fussy about the type of sauce on his pasta but the staff were very obliging and produce pasta with his favourite sauce (cheese and tomato!) . I do agree, however, that the fish was often overcooked and the meat sometimes tough. I don't know if we were particularly lucky, but we certainly had a varied menu with different types of meat (including calves liver which was again unfortunately overcooked). We were on half board and it was good to have the choice of eating lunch or dinner. We found the breakfast offered a very good buffet selection, we enjoyed the beautifully presented plate of fresh fruit on our table of pineapple, fresh figs, different types of melon, cherries and strawberries. The downside was that the food was a little predictable, but having regard to the fact it is quite a large hotel it is quite acceptable. In fact, a lot better than a couple of the local restaurants we ate in, but that's another review! This was our second visit, and the first with a small child, but we would all certainly return.
