The hotel is about 50m from the beach as stated. The beach is typical Italian style - you have to pay the daily rent of the umbrella,chairs (around 15eur/day). The sand is darker style, not the carribean white one. Just ok for the kids I would say, not much otherwise (no boat or scooter rental or anything like that nearby), no space enough for beach sports,...
The front door is however on the opposite side - facing mountains. The parking outside is small and the staff has to re-park the cars every time someone brings in or out their cars.
The rooms are clean, but completely outdated, paintings and furniture low class, even funny (painting of the Disney cartoon on the walls). The TV set is ridiculous as the provided channels and TV quality is poor, no pay per view or anything like that. No DVD player,.. no radio. Rooms do not have balcony. Only some rooms on the second floor have a sea view.
When it comes to the noise isolation - this is quite bad - you can hear disco from outside till about 2am or later. You can head people walking in the rooms above, speaking outside. The AC is not quiet either.
The continental breakfast is ok, the choices are quite good, even though oriented more into the sweet side. There are some good Italian restaurants nearby so eating is not a problem.
The staff is friendly, some speak some English and some German, French.
In overall, I would say this hotel is below average for the price and 3 star ranking.
