What a mistake...the car in the carpark should have warned me! Bovalino Marina is a shabby, crumbling, rubbish strewn no-where with unfinished buildings, refuse, cracked pavements and weeds! The Hotel is a vast dying edifice (nowhere remotely near the 5 star they claim! We waited 4 hrs for them to (unsuccessfully) try and fix the tv and internet. No hot...

We made a mistake on the reservation from one to two and we were charged an extra 40 euro. Would be fine if it was offering a good selection of amenities but nothing. The breakfast was the worst I've encountered in any Italian hotel. It's also not directly on the water as it portrays. If you order in the restaurant...

The pictures are great but the reality hits home when you drive up to it. It is located a couple blocks from the beach (reached by walking down an alley/stormdrain) and is isolated in a pretty desolate area. The facility itself was probably once a grand hotel with high quality materials used throughout. Unfortunately, it has suffered a bit in...

We apologize if the way to the beach is not so comfortable, but we do our best to change things in a town, which has to be to deal with a tainted mentality. We are working to improve services in a small town which wants to have the chance to be known worldwide, that’s the reason why we need time...

The best part of arriving at the hotel was the welcome: I was immediately greeted & offered a drink (I did have one after freshening up). Like a previous reviewer, it did feel a little like a ghost hotel: where were the other guests? Why weren't any of the public areas 'open'? However, I wasn't on holiday so wasn't put...

After arrival at the hotel in the afternoon the receptionist told us our rooms weren't prepared yet. He asked us to wait for 15 minutes in the lounge and offered us some drinks while waiting. When we got to our rooms we noticed that the hotel was not really that well maintained and was a little bit derelict, both from...

We stayed here for five days. One can not say enough about how the staff treated us like royalty. Everyone had a smile & couldn't do enough for us. Made us feel happy every day! Breakfast buffet was a delight every morning with many selections too numerous to list. We had fresh scrambled eggs and cappochino served hot to the...

The staff could not do enough for us. They were friendly, professional and courteous. Our room and ensuite bathroom were both spacious, and we had a very large balcony which was made private with plants and flowers. Even though the beach was "closed" because we were out of season they went out of their way to arrange for an umbrella...

From 1 to 16 July we had a delightful stay at the Hotel Villa Afrodite in the small coastal town of Bolvalino Marina. The hotel is a family run enterprise and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. After warning the hotel that my wife was a coeliac (and I only had to do this once), the staff made sure she...
