Recently had a week-end yoga retreat organised by docklandsyoga at the Villa Balbi, The hotel's location was very central - near to markets, restaurants and the sea. Accommodation and facilities were excellent. Reception staff, domestic staff and catering extremely helpful and friendly. Superb location.

Stayed here for the second time on a Great Rail Journeys holiday. Hotel is clean, food was good and the staff were wonderful. So friendly and helpful on both occasions. Private beach across the road and a nice garden by the pool.
