Warm welcome, clean and tidy. problem is too far from nearest town. Did have free shuttle service which was great. one thing that did make us chuckle was translation from Italian to English in room information booklet in the room, almost offered to correct it.

Dear Marcus, Thank You for choosing our resort for your vacation and for writing this feedback about it. We are happy to read You appreciated service and kindness of the staff. Regarding the location of the hotel, being a resort in contact with a protected marine reserve and not a city hotel, the position is clearly indicated on our official website, as well as on all the main booking portals. We are sorry if this has been a surprise for You, but we are even more sorry to read that because of this, the score given to the structure is mediocre. We hope that, if You ever decide to come back for a next stay, You can also appreciate other aspects of life in the resort. With Regards, Customer Care Dpt.

Once again so fantastic - thank you. The view is the most beautiful in the world and the service is just as good. The rock cliff swimming is everything you can ever dream off. One little thing - the hotel could take a little more care of the feral cats that comes to the hotel.

Dear Sam, Thank You for contacting us. We would like to inform You that the area surrounding the resort is a residential one, close the Plemmirio protected marine area. So, there are some restaurants (especially fish and pizza), but no shops. To go to the city, we offer a free shuttle bus service, twice a day, at fixed times, to be reserved. Also, You could take a taxi-boat with special rates. If You don't want to hire a car, taxi is the alternative solution. Please, do not hesitate to contact us for further inquiries. Kind Regards, Customer Care Dpt.
