This hotel is a refurbished 1000 yrs-old benedictine monastery, situated within hundreds of yards of a coast lined by pine trees. We liked it a lot - spacious rooms, sparseness of the decor, friendliness -even chumminess - of waiters and the reception team. WiFi and ethernet in every room. I did miss an extra (small) table in the room where I could do some work (on the laptop). We had great walks on the coast and the sunny hills above, where we tasted wine and olive oil with local farmers.
The kids liked bowling + swimming pool/sauna. We benefitted from visiting out of season - i can see that the hotel might be less enjoyable in the summer, surrounded by hordes of RVs and campers.
In a nutshell, probably one of the best places to visit when one is in the area.
