My wife, our son (9 months) and myself went there for 10 days this summer (2011). We have to admit that the place it utterly bautiful and the hotel has all you can neeed and dream of in a nice relaxing hotel. The acomodation is great, the pool wonderful and the amenities to a 4 star level.
We hoever have to add that it is NOT a child friendly hotel, eventhough we were always welcome by the people, it is definitely not a child riendly hotel as nothing it thgought for parents with your children. We did not know this when booking the hotel. Our opinion is this hotel should be a adult only hotel. Because it is so relaxing and peaceful, if you bring a 9 months old child, evrytime he cries or wants to enjoy the pool for example by screaming and being loud you don't really feel comfortable as the rest of the people are here to relax and be away from all!.
Also we should mention the really early hour imposed by the owner for the evening dinner, you have to start dinner at 19:30 and they are also lacking flexibility on a couple of things such as : not being able to move your terrace furniture around, not being able to picnic on the premises (it is away from teh center and they offer no lunch service).
We found Giusepe the owner fairly friendly, his wife not quite friendly (we'll just blame it on her very basic English), however we found Alessandro the most helpful and friendly staff of the hotel.
We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for peac and quet and have a car to get out of the hotel when you want to, we woudl NOT recommend this hotel to families with children under 15 years old.
