Fodor's Review

Looking a little like a cheerful Fellini film set of a fantasy tropical village, this collection of bright yellow, conical huts is fun and affordable. Set on different levels around a small pool and tropical gardens, the huts have colorful, whimsical interiors, with unusual fabrics, furniture, and walls painted by co-owner Simone Daniele, who, along with husband Pino Trimarchi, provides Italian panache to the place. The ground floor of each hut holds a kitchenette, bathroom,

and queen bed. A steep, curving staircase leads to a wooden loft with two single beds—great for families. Bright double rooms on the second floor of the main building have queen-size beds, high ceilings, spacious bathrooms, and colorful, creative decor. There's a good Italian restaurant on-site, plus a bar by the pool. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the beach, in a relatively quiet area and has a sustainability rating of three (out of five) leaves.
