Beautiful views, as mentioned by many previous reviews. This is really the reason to stay here. (Although note that beautiful views mean walking a pretty intense hill back up to the hotel!)
We were on the first floor, which meant a small balcony with only one chair. We were disappointed when we first saw but in reality we did not spend much time in the room. I did not find the rooms to small, as other have mentioned.
The service was excellent. We found the staff very helpful and they provided great restaurant recommendations in town. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant with the exception of the buffet breakfast, which I found to be the standard Italian breakfast buffet - good, but nothing over the top.
Others have mentioned that there was not a pool - we were there mid-May and they were re-doing the pool. It looked nearly complete.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would recommend to friends.
