This hotel is set just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Portoscuso and is very much there for the holiday months. Typically I end up here in a cold wet February and probably didn’t see the hotel at its best. It is a standard looking holiday hotel but I guess the courtyard areas and nice oranges work well in the sun. The service was mostly very good and everyone was friendly and willing to help with any requests I had.
One of these requests was to please leave the heat on during the day – normally when you take the card out of the slot in the room, everything shuts down. The aircon heating wasn’t really up to the job and the first night the room was freezing and still cold in the morning despite running it as hard as possible all night. In the end I was allowed to leave the card in the room so that the heating continued and I managed to get it to a decent room temperature after a few days of doing this.
The location must be great in the summer but in the winter the proximity to the sea meant that the room seemed to smell of rotting seaweed – you get used to it within a few minutes and can’t smell it anymore but of all my colleagues in different rooms on different floors, we all had the same issue. The dining areas are pretty basic in terms of layout but the food is good – even the smaller menu (included in the room rate) was good and well served.
I didn’t really get the good of the hotel – it is not a place for the offseason and, while the people try hard, the hotel is not set up to be heated and the rooms, while OK, are really meant for sleeping in after a day in the sun seeing the area.
