Peaceful, convenient setting
Posted Aug 18, 2016
Located in a small but beautiful garden setting, Grand Hotel Smereldo is removed enough to feel private but close enough to restaurants and shops only a five minute walk away. The layout of pools on small, staggered levels allows everyone to find quiet space with a view and some privacy. The small but private beach is great for a dip in the gorgeous, clear and calm sea. The hotel highlights were efficient, friendly and helpful staff and a very accommodating chef who catered for four picky vegetarians by adding dishes to the menu each night or just adapted what was there so that we could eat well and amply. The hotel just needs to replace the back-punishing beds; even if you can adapt to them during the stay, the adjustment at home has been painful.
