Il Pellicano

Il Pellicano is one of the oldest and most famous Relais&Chateaux in the world and it was a very easy decision to stay here for my project. After my stay I’m happy to conclude it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Extraordinary property.

A very warm welcome from the receptionists made my stay fantastic from the start. After a little chat I was escorted to the room. A lovely deluxe suite with separate sitting area and separate shower from the bath tub. Lovely local products in the bath room and a very beautiful sea view. I loved the design which gave a feeling of Tuscany. Another thing I loved was the fully stocked complimentary mini bar and wireless internet.

The service was really great, I was very impressed with the staff. Lovely, friendly and extremly helpful. The most important thing in a hotel is the service and the most important thing in service is the staff. The most important thing with staff is to find the right ones. Il Pellicano did that extraordinary well. Many Relais&Chateaux don’t have many facilities, but Il Pellicano both had swimming pool, spa and gym which was very nice. With Relais&Chateaux you can always count on extraordinary food. I had dinner in their 2 star Michelin restaurant and it was wonderful and worth it’s two stars. The breakfast was one of the best I’ve had in any hotel with a good buffet and eggs with salmon and mushroom made to perfection.

Overall a memorable experience in a beautiful location. It’s a perfect place to relax and enjoy life. It’s definitely one of my favorite hotels in Europe and I can’t recommend it enough.

My opinion: Fantastic experience.
