4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

We have spent a very good holiday staying at this hotel. It is a family-run hotel, and everyone was kind and helpful. They created an almost family-like atmosphere, yet respected the privacy of the guests.
We decided to take the all-inclusive option which proved to be very a good choice (44 EUR/person in low season). Breakfast was served on the terrace of the hotel, in a quite pleasant a setting. Meals (lunch and dinner) consisted of a salad-bar and pastry, followed by three (!) courses, - this was really more than enough. Courses included various Italian dishes. Guests could make their choice from a menu distributed the previous evening at dinner. Drinks were not included , but prices were good (a bottle of wine costs 7,70 EUR, a bottle of water of 1 l 1,80 EUR). Moreover, they kept your bottles in the fridge for the following meals until you finished them, so you did not have to drink the whole bottle of wine if you did not feel like. Coffee and drinks at the bar were unexpensive compared to restaurant prices (1 EUR a coffee, 2 EUR a drink). If one thinks of the price one pays for meals at restaurants, not to speak of the "coperto", it was an excellent choice.
The room was OK - not excessively nicely furbished (the desk was a bit worn, and not cleaned when we got there), yet it had all one needed - a large bed, Sky TV with plenty of free channels in many languages, free wireless internet with good speed, safe, airco , small fridge (actually an empty minibar, but drinks were available at the bar). The bathroom was rather basic, with no shower box. One simply stands on the floor under the shower, with a curtain that does not really prevent the bathroom from becoming all wet, but when one came from the beach it served its purpose.
The room had a balcony where you could sit outside, or dry your towels and swimwear.
The hotel is accessible from Rimini railway station with buses 4 and 8, the trip takes 12-15 minutes, but is entirely acceptable. Stops are numbered - one has to pay attention to the numbers marked on the shield at every bus stop. It depends how much one wants to travel to Rimini, - we first bought a 3-days ticket, but it was not worth. Better buy a 6-travels ticket or individual tickets at the Rimini station.
The hotel is very close to the beach. Beach services have to be paid separately (ca. 13 EUR for 2 deckchairs and an umbrella)
The beach is not as nice as in Rimini, but OK. Unlike in Rimini itself, stone barriers create little bays, where small crabs find shelter, yet, we could still enjoy the water.
The hotel seems popular with German(-speaking) guests.
All in all, we would probably return.
