The staff here, especially the young ladies on reception, are amazingly helpful. Always happy to answer questions (and research bus and train timetables for us - thanks Martina!). The breakfasts are unusual for British visitors, but it is great to eat local food. Ratatouille,

Hi there! We love dogs, we exceptionally take only small size ones but never say no to Service dogs whatever size. If you came in Italy in summer season there are restrictions for the beach areas which maybe you should be aware of. Do not hesitate to contact us for any additional informations. Kind regards Paolo

You can arrange with the concierge to go to possibly two different beach clubs. My husband and I went to Lido Beach. A van from the beach club picked us up from the hotel and then other tourists from other hotels and drove us down to the beach. I think it was 10 euro per person for the ride there and back and a nice chair with umbrella. Beach is tiny pebbles, not sand. The weather was great when we went in mid/late October. They have waiter service for beverages and food. There are restrooms in the restaurant beachside as well.

"Room 18 was lovelyGreat view, perfect location, perfect bed and shower "
"We only saw our room and that was very good but because of the views I would think the best rooms would be those at the front."
