Paying for proximity

Pros: Nicolette at the front desk was absolutely wonderful!
Location: The Valley of the Temples really is a treat. And if you can, make time to go down to Scala dei Turchi.
I was a solo 30 something traveler, so take that into account (I don't think there was anybody under 55 at the hotel while I was there…not that there was anything wrong with that!). But that said, I was underwhelmed by the experience there. The grounds were nice and well taken care of, and the setting is inspiring. Sitting at dinner looking out at the beautifully lit ruins in the Valley is amazing. The rooms, however, were just okay. I had a superior room that was an overwhelming kind of white that doesn't greet you softly as much as just smack you in the face. And that kind of white comes with a price - like the mud that room service tracked in and didn't bother to clean up when they left. I also had some issues with the restaurant. I thought the whole restaurant experience there was a bit pretentious and overpriced. Then I was ignored for a long time, then they got my order wrong. There was even more confusion the following night when I ordered room service from them…receiving the completely wrong thing, I just threw in the towel and accepted my fate. And the icing on the cake for me, though, was when I had members of the maid/valet staff just open my door one night without knocking or ringing…very surprising, to say the least. The front desk staff was incredibly pleasant, friendly, and helpful. But all in all I thought that they hotel was overpriced and underperformed. You're paying for the proximity and private entrance to the Valley of the Temples, I guess.
