0.6km from Ristorante il FollaroOur cousin who is a travel agent suggested this hotel to us for the first week of our trip to Italy. There were a couple of surprises, but overall it was a pleasant stay. The hotel is close to the beach, boasts a friendly staff and provides comfortable rooms. We chose to stay on a mezza-pensione plan, so our dinners were included. As an American, some of the dinner choices were not ones I was thrilled about (rabbit, octopus, etc.!) but there was an abundance of fresh vegetables, salads, fruits and other foods. We didn't starve. The colazione was set in a large room which opened up onto a terrazza overlooking the water. There were plenty of offerings for breakfast, too. There is a pool underneath an enormous clamshell cover, but we only used it once. Bathing caps are required! We were surprised to have to pay extra for a couple of things. We've stayed on these plans before and wine has been included with dinner--it isn't here. But again, we didn't go without! Beer, wine and bottled water are offered for extra. The other thing was that we had to pay a daily rate for beach chairs and an umbrella, which I guess is accepted in many places. However, we were not charged at another hotel we stayed in--our chairs and umbrella came with the room. I would recommend this hotel. The beach is what we went for and where we spent most of our time. The beach staff is helpful and conscientious and we were able to swim, sun and relax in well-tended surroundings.
