We pointed out a few issues, and some breakdowns of equipment and staff were prompt in addressing them. Very friendly and helpful also.
It felt understaffed though I believe it is not. Some of the standard services are a tad inefficient, and thus a bit slow. Bath linen all taken away in the morning and only replaced in the evening. But these are minor issues, and I’m professionally biased to spot supply-chain inefficiency. On the bigger issues, the response was excellent !
Amazing location, everything is smooth and well done, with options for everyone. The `rocky beach' is great for genuine sea swimming and the pool and sandy beach great for kids and relaxing. Fantastic place and very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was upgraded upon arrival to a junior suite with sea view (for no extra cost), and the suite was absolutely amazing, with a view on Ortigia. We had a great time.
The hotel restaurant, while very good, is massively overpriced for what you get.
The view, the location, the rock beach.. perfect in every way!
Should have more transfers to Ortigia
Location unique whit a gorgeous landscape and esclusive seaside , breakfast very good, bed and bathroom excellent, high quality of traditional food and beverage.
The facilities are great and there is so much open air space!
