We booked an apartment for 4 people which consisted of a main bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen / lounge which had a double sofa bed. The apartment itself was nice and clean and had everything we wanted. It was right next to one of the free swimming pools which again were clean and the free loungers were of a... More

We had an apartment with breakfast at Borgo la Fornace in August. The apartment was very modern and sleek, lovely comfortable bed. We had to make liberal use of the mosquito sprays at night and were quick to close the windows and doors in the evening. No air con meant a warm sleep. There's a mixture of property on site,...

Not going to discuss on wetter it is a four star location or not but I had a great vacation week. Besides the fact that I agree with the overall opinion that the showers in the rooms are too small, the rest of the apartment is great. Maybe management should think about the noise the people in the apartments 23-20... More

The room we had was among the best I ever had: modern, clean, nicely furnished and huge. The place is beautiful but it is a little bit in the middle of nowhere and differently from other places nearby the view is not great. The restaurant is good but a little pretentious. Overall a very good experience.

We stayed here for a week in Aug, in an apartment, on a bed and breakfast basis. The grounds and the hotel are attractive and there is plenty of space, even when the hotel is full. There is wifi in the reception and lounge/ bar. The apartment was lovely, smallish but very stylish and immaculately clean. There was a huge,... More

We stayed here for 5 days and first impressions were great; the complex is tastefully done and our room was nice. Breakfast was very poor, limited to croissants and breads as they'd ran out of cheese and ham! Breakfast was from 8am however what this really meant is that staff arrived at work for 8 and started to set up.... More

Stayed here for 10 days last summer. it's a bit of an odd set up. Seems like most of the complex (low rise, spread out, tasteful) is holiday homes, so at the weekend it got pretty busy. There are a couple of blocks apartments/ suites which is the hotel. There are 2 big pools- neither of which got busy (apart... More

Booked their prestige suite but was given a different suite (not nearly as nice). After a long conversation with the lady at reception we were told that the couple in our room had been granted a late check out (we arrived at 4pm - checkin starts at 2pm) so we couldn't get our room.

I booked this hotel for some R&R. Whilst it is beautiful, you would be disappointed if you are expecting a resort or spa. It was virtually a ghost town (great for me!) and I really only saw other guests at breakfast, which by the way was atrocious. It was like pulling teeth to get something as they only laid out...
