Everything! All is new and nice decorated, bright colours in the room interior. Just few steps and you can reach a wonderful sandy beach! Very good breakfast! Good location.
Amazing staff and rooms
Too many stairs, but that’s ok
We really loved our stay here. Our highlights were: - The beach. Cava dell'Isola is beautiful and it's only 2 minutes walk (down a slope) from the hotel. In peak season, it got busy during the day (but still with a nice atmosphere) but it was super peaceful in the early mornings and evenings. We thought it was nicer than nearby Citara, which is supposed to be one of the best beaches on the island. - The breakfast and aperitivo - delicious food and great cocktails with stunning views of the ocean - The staff. Lovely family-run feel and really helpful staff. Mario was especially awesome! - The location. We really liked this part of the island. Cava dell'Isola has a couple lovely restaurants right on the doorstep so we didn't really feel the need to explore Forio for the two nights we were there, but it seemed like a great little town. The hotel is also near the Poseidon Thermal Spas, which are pretty pricey but a really relaxing day trip and walking distance from the hotel.
Nothing, it was all fantastic!
An outstanding location - close both to the city center (20-30 min walk) and Poseidon thermal park (15-20 min walk). Right below in 20 meters there are 2 excellent restaurants (comparing to a number of other options throughout Forio that are highly rated at the well-known restaurant review web-site) for lunch and dinner - definitely in our top 5 of Forio. Has a great beach right downstairs with an amazing view to the bay of Citara (the beautiful place where the Poseidon park is located), one can even have some fun swimming with a mask - there are some bigger and smaller stones around (with some huge ones standing well out of water) so the seabed has some nice landscape to watch, as well as occasional fishes. The hotel provides a decent breakfast and they were able to prepare some custom omelette for our baby upon request. The room (sea view) was stylish, spacey and clean. The view was excellent - one can enjoy it from the private terrace (that each sea view room has) relaxing in a chair. The child bed provided was good and spacey for our 2-years old baby. Sea view rooms are at a distance from the breakfast space (unlike some other rooms, esp. the standard ones) so we had no issues at all with the morning noise mentioned in some reviews. They have a rare great “door system” in the rooms - there is a usual glass door, then there is an extra shutter door with moving louvers, plus a sliding mosquito net for the whole door space. So one can close just the glass door to avoid noise but keep the view, or also close the louvers so that no one sees the room, or open the glass door but close the shutter door and mosquito net to let the air come in. Both the glass door and the shutter door are sturdy and can be locked separately with the same key, so one can safely lock the room in any of the mentioned set ups. They also have quite a powerful exhaust fan in the rooms, so there are no problems to keep the air fresh and have no insects at the same time.
The air conditioning was quite smelly in one of the rooms (we had two rooms as a bigger family) probably because of unchanged filters, so we didn’t want to use it. That is sea view room #2 (for the owners reference). Wasn’t a big deal for us but may be for someone else. One other thing was that our request to clean the blocked sink was probably forgotten on day 1 as it seemed, despite a second reminder, but was quite quickly fixed on day 2. Again wasn’t a big deal for us at all, though there is some space for improvement. The bigger issue is that smoking is prohibited in the rooms BUT allowed on the terrace which has half-open partitions between the rooms (at least for the sea view ones). So we had a few times when our smoking neighbors spoiled the air in our room when we had the door open to get fresh air (quite ironically). When you notice the smell it is usually too late to start closing the glass door. My recommendation would be prohibiting smoking everywhere around the rooms as otherwise the non-smoking rooms don’t make much sense, especially with the exhaust fan that sucks the outdoor air to the inside. Also some people smoke much more often than our neighbors did, so if someone gets such smoking neighbors I can imagine that it could seriously spoil the vacation.
The staff Mario is very helpful and he made wonderful cheese cake for breakfast which was very impressive. Overall the stay at the hotel is very enjoyable. The hotel is located at a very beautiful beach.
