I had an extended family of seven, and we had a great 10 day stay last Xmas and New Year's. I don't know where these people who have written reviews were staying but they are full of it. A "sufficient breakfast" --what does she want. There was juice, tea/coffee (pots of it and as much as you want), cakes, fresh...

I spent two nights, December 4 and 5, 2014 in this hotel. It has several cottages, with standard single rooms and a suite. I put up in a standard single room, 702, on the ground floor. It was a nice room, with a cobbled floor that made for a unique design. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked...

I stayed for 5 days in May, 2014. I also stayed in 2010. The accommodations are ok. The positives: food, friendly and attentive staff. The negatives: Internet, towels, toilets, lack of hot water and water pressure Food is obviously prepared by someone who knows what they're doing. Breakfast was sparse but sufficient with eggs, toast, juices, cereal, beans and sausage....

Tamani Jua gave a mixed impression on both good/nice and really bad/not acceptable sides. In general it was OK, the lay out of the buildings, the pool area and the restaurant were nice. The staff was also helpful although it was sometimes difficult to made oneself understood in English! Italian is by no doubt the preferred language and Italians are...

Booked a so-called Junior Suite through Booking.com. The room was just 3m x 3m and tucked away under stairs. The shower was poor and the room was generally tired. This room is what the hotel's own website calls a Superior Room but they told us that that was what had been booked through Booking.com despite our paperwork describing the room...
