After reading many trip advisor reviews we were very sceptical about staying here. It sounded a bit like "Fawlty Towers".We had no choice as we had changed our travel plans and found that most accomodation in and around Cortina was already booked in what is the busiest week of the Italian Ski Season.
Maybe our expectations were low but we were very pleasantly surprised overall with our stay.
The positives are definitely the location and the view if you ask for a lake view room. We stayed as a family of four with teenage children. The room was basic but spacious and clean,the breakfast was ample and the faclilties like the pool,happy hour,nightly entertainment etc were adequate.The nightly menu left a little to be desired but it wasn't inedible.
The negatives are definitely that this place lacks strong management. So whilst the staff can be friendly or apologetic for not delivering on some issue the fact remains that without direction from the top the service can be lacking and jaded. My husband is an Italian speaker and this is a definite advantage.
Others may find it a disadvantage but we found that the remoteness of the location from Cortina (11km) meant that the place felt more like a guest house. We often played cards or sang along to the cheesy songs each evening and we throughly enjoyed ourselves. We have stayed in Cortina central previously in another 4 star and found that the proximity to the main street meant that our stay was less personal.
This place is not for everyone and is probably more like a good 2 star or 3 star but overall we really enjoyed our stay.
Overall though I think this place represents excellent value for your money in a town that is more expensive than most other resorts.
