Nice but not worth the money
Posted Aug 18, 2016
Relatively new and nice hotel with a semi-modern design, but lacks that Italian charm we were expecting.
Hotel staff and housekeeping are all very nice and friendly!
Overall, it's not quite a $500/night hotel. From a business perspective, the hotel management is trying to save and squeeze every cent out of the visitors pocket:
-housekeeping folds up wet towels back on the rack, instead of replacing with fresh clean towels (unless you specifically ask for new ones);
-in our room: the toilet tank water was running the entire time, which became a nuisance every night. And, the TV and jacuzzi shower didn't work. All of which remained that way even after a repair visit.
-the (3 story) building has a decent rooftop, but, while showing off their amenities during the grand tour, they don't tell you using the rooftop costs *90 euros* per day for just one section (partial day is less);
-pretty overpriced food/drinks (even more than Capri's tourist traps). A chicken club sandwich while relaxing on the poolside sounds really good, until the sandwich arrives with literally only 4 very small pieces of chicken (not breast, dark meat), filled with tomatoes;
-they will happily book a boat tour upon request, but, it will also happily be *60 euros* more expensive than any other place;
-there's a nice turkish bath and steam room downstairs, BUT, they won't tell you during the glorious tour that it costs *50 euros*;
