The only negative I can say about this place is that it's a little hard to find. The view is spectacular. Both bedrooms and the bathroom in our suite had gorgeous views. The rooms were nicely decorated with antiques. The beds were comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom was relatively large with nice towels and toiletries. But, the best thing about the resort was the people working there. As someone else mentioned, most of the staff speak very little English (and we speak very little Italian), but this was absolutely no problem. We were able to communicate and they went out of their way to meet our every request. For example, we came in late one evening and asked if we could get a snack - they prepared a lavish spread of prosciutto, bread, various local cheeses, and a couple warm appetizers (much more food than we expected or needed), then about half-way through eating they brought more food - Parma ham! All this was served by candle-light out on the upstairs veranda. What an unexpectedly great experience. We ate a full meal two other nights and the "real" food was equally as good. I, obviously, can't say enough good things about this place.
