Amazing hotel. Excellent view. Great food. Hot in July, A/C in room 103 was weak but they offered to move us. They have a private entrance to visit the ruins. We’ll worth it. I’m only sorry we just planned one night. Should have been three.

10/10 Exceptional

It's probably the best place to visit the valley of the temples. It's amazing to arrive at night with the temple of Concordia lit up right in front of your room (we had 107 which is a delux room I think) and it was amazing to hang around the garden which are so nice. The room is not super big but good size and maybe a 9 overall; but service is fantastic all around and worth an 111! Cooked breakfast was great and super fast; the breakfast place is right in front of the temple and you feel so lucky to be there, very very special. Then the hotel has its private entrance to the valley (at the end of the carpark...) so you feel even more lucky. Thank you so much!

8/10 Very good

My husband and I had booked the Presidential Suite for two nights during our honeymoon. On arrival we were offered an upgrade to the Villa Suite, which was 80 euro more per night but worth it for a “splurge.” We enjoyed spending time on our large private terrace, but it should be noted that the terrace is frequented by some noisy doves. We like animals so it wasn’t a problem, even when one dove entered our room and needed some assistance finding her way out… the hot tub was a nice touch but it was difficult to operate (the instructions weren’t clear) and the tub itself wasn’t very clean. There was also a strange odor from the bathroom likely do to the age of the plumbing that was notable but not bothersome when we left the door closed. I enjoyed having access to a Dyson hairdryer because I do not have one at home ;) Some advice - the rooms could use a bottle opener for wine bottles and instructions for use of the Nespresso machine. All other aspects of our stay were wonderful! The staff has a great deal of respect for their work and take pride in making guests feel welcome. This was a “bucket list” excursion for us and we will not likely opt to return given the high cost of our stay, but it’s a worthwhile booking for special celebrations and I would recommend it for anyone who can afford it.
