Staff: Half do not speak anything but italian (somewhat ok and expected in Italy). However when one of the staff tells a client "I'm the boss here" when asked a question, this is beyond language barrier. 1/5 Room: Room ok, AC working however the bathroom is so small a weird gymnastic is needed around the door and the sink to access the toilets. Bed is rock hard (no problem for me but might be depending on what you like) 2/5 Service: Never ate at the restaurant in the evening because of the waiting staff so I cant comment. Nonetheless, our rooms were getting cleaned at around 14h. Seems weird. 3/5 Overall: Will not be coming back, a shame ! The hotel has some potential. Last unpleasant note: if you eat in the room, you'll be charged extra.
I start with the only positive thing: watching the sunset from the terrace .. and that's it Negative the much more: Bathing little in the toilet sitting in the foot in the shower because the place is so small the climate is loud and very dirty unhealthy every room on the terrace door loudly loud that we heard of the beach when a door opened in the hotel the chair that is on the patio with UV rays disintegrated on swimsuit and itched our skin WIFI did not work all week TV channel is only German language and bad signal the morning's awful sweet bakery and two kinds of ham and a cheese with no vegetable yogurt in cheap quality scrambled eggs to pay extra I do not recommend paying anyone so much money for the disadvantageous accommodation it is not worth it! at reception we reported the problem they lied they did not know about them. while people in front of us have already indicated these problems! Change, repair nothing! Outrageous!!…
When we arrived at the hotel we were told that there was a problem with the airco in our room. We were offered another room, normally for handicapped people. We accepted as no working airco was not acceptable with temps going to 40 degrees celsius. We went to have dinner and a walk and upon returning, we discovered the wifi did not work at all! The next day, we complained to the very friendly reception lady who arranged us a room at hotel boutique carolina... None of the outdoor suites had the view that was presented on the site. All these rooms had no windows. The window was the door...
The rooms are recently refurbished and look nice. The disappointment is the price when compared to the service. Rooms are very small, toiletries are minimal. The worst thing are the extras at breakfast... If you want a coffe or a cappuccino from the bar is extra! You have to live with the automatic coffe machine... This is ridiculous in Italia. In a nutshell, everything seems done to make money not for customers satisfaction, which is not what you expect from a small 15-room hotel. Ah.... Forget also to receive an offer or discount if you decide to have dinner at the hotel restaurant.
The hotel is situated at the beach, simply walk outside and enjoy the seaside. The beach itself has many 'private' sections, which simply means you have to pay for beds and an umbrella (hotel has no private section). However, there are also public sections in between those private areas. It is a sandy beach. The room was of a decent size, bathroom was rather small, but fine. The breakfast was somewhat limited to those who like some savoury stuff in the morning, sweets aplenty. Special 'egg'-stuff cost extra (soft boiled, scrambled to name a few). We did not eat at the hotel's restaurant, so no comments on that. There are plenty of restaurants around, varying from pizza to full-on seafood. Quality varies.
