Our favourite rooms
We loved Room 205 for the terrific tiles in its bathroom: white but with bright blue splatterings only an angry person with a brush could produce. Its terrace isn’t bad, either – vast, with a spectacular view out to sea. The nautically styled classic rooms are smaller but their sea views just as impressive.
The tree encircled pool is at the heart of the hotel, with wooden decking and rocky path down to the sea. As well as a hot tub, there’s an assortment of terraces, both sun-drenched and shady. A heated pool awaits inside, too.
Deck shoes, striped things and an oversized straw hat.
Smoking is allowed in outdoor areas and small pets are welcome. Guests can book the hotel's own boats for two-day trips to Capri or Ischia.
