While there seem to be mixed feelings on Fontelina our experience was great. That being said, we spent 3 days here in August, had the same spot each day which was in a prime location. My feelings would probably be different if this was not...More

Despite last summer being our third summer visiting La Fontellina, we were still shoved back against some rocks, nowhere near a view of the water, with a 12+ person family playing loud music and slowly inching their "beds" closer to ours until it was literally...More

It's all about reservations. Just tell them what you want and the staff will handle it. I wouldn't stress, the whole idea is to relax and the Fontelina staff will handle everything.
