I came here with my daughter, son-in-law and small grandson, and we could not have been more welcomed. The hotel is family-run and we were made to feel part of the family. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable and anything extra we needed appeared immediately. The staff were very friendly and smiling, and as someone has said elsewhere nothing was...

We stayed for two weeks in a VIP room with our 5.5yo son. The hotel was super nice, with great service and nice food. The buffet varied every day, the room was very clean and comfortable and we were very well looked after. We loved being so close to the beach, about 2 minutes away, tops. The owner speaks fluent...

This hotel felt like we were visiting family. We were made so welcome. Food was plentiful with some great dishes on offer. The pasta & lemon sorbet were amazing. Roof top pool was really lovely, rooms large and drinks on the terrace was a great way to end the day. Beach so close too. We travelled to Bologna and got...

First of all I would like to thank Catia Battistelli once again for her immeasurable hospitality and dedication. This is a fine hotel with generously sized rooms, spotlessly clean and genuinely friendly, helpful staff who are more than willing to make you feel welcome. It's a traditional, family-run hotel and you can feel it. I thoroughly enjoyed the warm evenings...
