The 1st time gave me a single room. that normally it would be a wharehouse and not a room. Room dim 3,5 x 2 ...aprox. TOO SMALL. After asking to change it with difficulty, they gave me a normal room. No TV, no pressure in the water, the cistern in the toilet didn't work. I opened the shower and for a couple of min the water was yellow like rust, and finally the room was not clean ! We went on Saturday night at the Port to eat. The traffic was tremendous and the road was blocked. Also the parking was full.We decided like many others that it could be better to parking in the main road like many many other cars. Same thing in many turistic places in the world. We walked by foot and eat ar 1999 restaurant. The only good thing. We walked again all the uphill and we saw to all cars including ours the ticket emitted at 23:37 p.m. they are amazing !!! Where was the Municipal Police o avoid the traffic jam ? Which genius send them at midnight?They only expel tourism. So , for sure I do not recommend the place.

What a find (not by us, but our production company). Built into the living rock, this hotel is built on a number of different levels it gives an old world charm to the place. The staff go out of their way to make you welcome. Not sure if it’s family run but has that feel about it. The restaurant menu changes each day and is different lunch time to dinner time. The hotel has its own private beach which is accessed via a lift ( there are still a large number of steps down to the beach). There is a pool below the restaurant on the same level as the hotel. If you have a mobility issue this is not the place for you.

I was there for an italian-french wedding. We had a beautiful big room, opening on the pool.The room was quite humid, but it's normal for a building on a cliff. The furniture is old, but it's the style of the hotel. The bed was confortable. The breakfast was very good, with fresh orange juice, cakes, fruits, ... Quite a big choice. And the view is stunning from the breakfast terrace, as well as the pool. The beach is small but beautiful, nestled in a beautiful creek. And there is a lift going to the beach! Beach beds are available for a fee, but that's absolutely normal in Italy, it's the same on every beach so don't be surprised. And it's always quite expensive. The food at the wedding was great, but also in the hotel's restaurant and the snack near the beach. There is not much to do around but the region is beautiful, it's very good for quiet resting holidays. The personnel was ok and they even drove us to the station in the nearby city. The swimming pool is very nice. For the downside, there might be some improvement. The window in our room did not close well. The bathroom was quite nice, with lemon soap, but it got wet everywhere too quickly. And yes, there are a lot of mosquitoes in the area, but that's quite normal in the south of Italy. I didn't try the spa, but we did a boat tour, wich was interesting but to avoid if you have seasickness, it moves a lot! In conclusion, it's more a 3 star than a 4, but again, they have different standards in Italy.

The attention to detail was fantastic. The delicious homemade pastry and fresh fruit for breakfast was a highlight. Staff spoke English and were very helpful to recommend places to visit or places to eat.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during the course of an Italian road trip. On arrival, we were impressed. Set back into the cliffs with dramatic views, we were hoping for good things. The car park is a little tricky to access but I'm sure if you're driven this far in Italy you'll manage it! We headed to reception to check in. My Italian is pretty poor so, like everywhere else we'd stayed, I was patient and offered to use translating apps to make communication easier. However I found the staff here to be particularly rude and surly. Not something I'd mind normally, but they then started to tell us that the terms of the booking were incorrect. We'd booked through booking.com, like we had for every other hotel along our trip. It clearly stated that breakfast was included but they insisted that this was not the case. €20 a day. In 1000 miles of travelling around Italy, this one the only instance that the terms of the booking were questioned. Moving on. The room was clean and pleasant, with a lovely view over the bay. Cleaning staff were thorough and punctual. Breakfast consisted of a cake buffet, coffee, some cold meats, hot dogs, scrambled eggs and fresh orange juice. Nothing special but not bad. Having been told we were paying for this on top of our booking, we filled our boots! Views with breakfast were stunning. We sat outside when the wind allowed and it was gorgeous in the sun with the views. We headed out into the local area for exploration for a few hours here and there but the majority of the time we stayed on the private beach. The water is beautiful and with the beach being set back into a bay there is next to no wind. The beach is very convenient to access, with a lift directly down just behind the bar and then a short walk down to the seaside. However, what we weren't told was that access to the beach is NOT included in the room rate. I was rather horrified to discover that access to the beach was charged at €18 a day. No mention of this was made anywhere on the terms of our booking, at check in, at the point of entry to our beach. The beach attendant asked us if we were staying at the hotel when we arrived, he took our name and room number and showed us to a beach bed. As you can access the beach as a non-hotel guest, people who weren't staying were paying for the access. In summary, the Hotel Spa Villa del Mare could be a fantastic place to stay. It has decent facilities, wonderful views and provides a blissful setting for relaxation. However, the bitter taste left with the extra, unexplained at point of sale charges has made it difficult to reflect on our stay with much a a sense of satisfaction. We were quoted €297 for 3 nights stay and ended up being charged €425 (which includes 2 rounds of drinks at the bar). The curtness of the reception staff did not make us feel welcome and will leave a lasting impression of the place.
