The area is stunning, and next time I would spent two nights, just to really rest and soak in the natural beauty. However, our experience here was a little disappointing. It could also be different cultural expectations that led to the disappointment, but when we saw a certain amount of stars to this hotel, we had an expectation in our minds that was not met. The restaurant for one, felt like a dining room facility in a retirement home. There was loud live music - a man playing a keyboard with demo drum sounds. When we entered the dining room, the entrance was at the front, and every table was facing the door, so all eyes were on us and it was so awkward. Breakfast portions were ridiculous. Bacon and eggs was a plate with maybe one scrambled egg and a quarter of a regular slice of bacon. I couldn’t believe it. The bacon was about the one of a thumb.
The spa was available for use for 140 euro per person for exclusive use for 90 minutes. I’ve been to much nicer spa areas that charged much less, though the saunas were great, but the overall ambiance felt like a public swimming pool. It honestly didn’t feel like a 140 euro experience. Not to mention, there were no cups for water in the room or things to eat. Maybe 30 or 40 each would be more appropriate.
So as I mentioned, next time I come to Saturnia, I would like to spend two nights, however, I would rather get a bnb of my own with a kitchen, or, go all in and stay at the luxury Saturnia resort down the road.
