One of the nicest locations in the area. The once great hotel has come to age but is well maintained and everything is functioning. The food was at best average (admittedly at the end of the season). The own wines are simple but really worthy to be tasted. The wife of the owner is a very charming host. Our suite... More

We attended a wedding here September 2016, it was fantastic. The views from the veranda are unbelievable, there are vineyards, orchards, large grounds for walking. Beach is down a private elevator (wow), they grilled fresh fish and veggies every day we were there. Ornella the hostess was great, very friendly, all the staff spoke English very well, which was good... More

We attended a wedding at this beautiful resort last June. The hotel is perched on a hillside surrounded by a fantastic garden. You have three outdoor patios and one with a pool. A private beach accessible via an elevator. The food and service was simple amazing. What a wonderful place for a wedding.

I was there for a family destination wedding and had an amazing time. Never having been to resort in Europe I was not sure what to expect. The hotel is older but well kept and clean, reminds me a bit of a Wes Andersen film. Beautiful common rooms and terraces with outstanding views. The beach is quirky in that you... More

We stayed here recently and what a fabulous piece of heaven it is! The hotel itself has the most amazing common areas, lobbies, terraces etc, with views to the ocean that go on forever. The food was incredible all through the stay. The staff were great if sometimes needing better English, but we understood each other. The room we had... More

I can't say enough great things about this place. We arrived here for my sisters destination wedding at the end of September/beginning of October; a bit after the high season. Our room had a nice view of the ocean and hotel grounds. The room was also very clean and comfortable. There is a golf course that looked very nice, several... More

This was an absolutely wonderful hotel. Lovely location, very much to do on the property (golf, private beach, pool, bar, lounge), but what really made everything perfectwas the staff. I got to meet some really wonderful people. We got the pleasure of meeting the hotel manager and her husband, a incredibly beautiful and hospitable family. Amazing!

Perched on the cliffs overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea this stately hotel charmed us all.

Just recently stayed at the Grand Hotel San Michele, with a tour group; having visited many lovely hotels with my late husband, I found the Grand Hotel San Michele rated high among the very best! It is simply enchanting, straight out of a Henry James novel with its own fascinating history dating back to the early 1920's. Not having the... More
