We arrived for a four night stay in the middle of ferraagosto - European summer holidays centering on the traditional August 15 festive day. The hotel is situated conveniently opposite the beach and close to both the town conveniences such as the tourist office and the tabacchi as well as the bars, restaurants and beach areas in the other direction.
The staff, mostly young women, were friendly and glad to try speaking English, even when they didn't know it well, with at least one member speaking very good English. The hotel interior and exterior was nicely presented and even a little bit cool and funky with modern abstract art on the walls, nice high ceilings like most buildings in southern Europe and was clean and modern, with card access to rooms equipped with electronic do no disturb displays.
The breakfast was good too - delicious Italian cakes and cornetti (filled croissants), cereals, every flavour of yoghurt you could hope for - including coffee! - and preserved fruit to go with it, and English-style boiled and scrambled eggs and toast, as well as, certo! - Italian coffee made to order and brought to your table. The girls serving breakfast weren't quite as friendly as the front desk staff, but they were fine.
Unfortunately, there is no dedicated hole parking, and it is very difficult to get one of the free spaces in the side streets, but parking directly out the front was 6 euros a day, so not exorbitant, plus the reception staff will happily provide you with change for the machine.
You can also conveniently book a boat trip on the "puma" to the area's beaches at reception, and the price at 45 euros a head for the whole day compares well with the competitor companies situated at the port. The hotel will also provide a packed lunch, if requested, for 8 euros a head, comprising of two filled rolls - delicious! - fruit, cheese and lovely cold bottled water, in your choice of still or sparkling.
I would definitely return and recommend this hotel to others.
