We stayed at Cantico della Natura for a week 7-13.August We booked two rooms one room was meant to be for a child we had a 14 year old with us.My fault because i put on the drop down when booking we have a child. They changed the bed for us within two days which was great.
Our room was overlooking the pool with the most amazing view.IT seemed as though everybody was crammed in.We opted to have dinner in the restaurant. We could only see two members of staff serving 40 people they were so busy flustered even:-( We were waiting an hour and half untill we got served because we had been forgotten, how ever we did not blame the member of staff we just felt there should have been more staff working to cater for the volume of people.It just reminded of us London where everyone is rushing around:-)The meals were some what small . Our 14year old was disappointed that they didn't do chips as this is a family place.We thought the menu was also limited, we asked how often the menu was changed and the member of staff said every 3 months but i think he meant every month.The desserts were lovely though.Breakfast the choice was ok however you had to get there before 8.30 am otherwise you would not get a place. We found that the eating area in side was far to small for the amount of people.It did rain whilst we were there and we had the same scenario where people wanted to eat but couldn't because there was no space.
We tried the Wellness centre for a full body massage with lavender and a back massage for my husband the total came to 90 euros he said it was mean to be 100 euros but gave us a reduction. Full body massage was great but wish i knew how much it was because the sign said 25 euros. please check first. Apart from the price it was ok..
My opinion of this place the positive points,
The view is breath taking
The staff Hamstill is a sweet warm person who goes out of his way to help.
Breakfast lots of choice.
Staff arranged horse riding for us which was 15mins away.
Good facilities for children
Well positioned for amenities .
Service around the pool. (Hamstill you are a star)
Wine choice is great.
More staff needed
Mini bar should be a lot cooler.
Check price of wellness centre first.
Choice of food is limited and does not taste hand made.
The restaurant is far to small they should have a back up plan should it rain.
Open up and fully stock the Pool bar in the evening
Stock Martini Rosso
Huge cobwebs in the bathroom, buy the cleaner an extendable feather duster.
include Chips on menu
INCLUDE Icecream ON MENU.
Pool needs to be bigger and the pool area.
Overall this place was ok we still enjoyed our time there
