We stayed at L'Orso e Il Mare for 3 nights and thought the facilities and service was exceptional and the owners were very warm and welcoming.

We stayed here for a couple of nights, and it was just perfect. The room was lovely and had everything we needed, and the balcony was great for sitting out with a glass of wine. Breakfast was delicious, and we really appreciated being able to take what was left over away as a packed lunch - great for our day...

Spent 2 nights at L'Orso e Il Mare and loved the central location, walking distance to shops, restaurants, the port and water. Pietro helped out with some suggestions for places to see and visit as well as great spots to eat. Room was spotless, bathroom too and the little clothes line outside the window was a bonus - always handy...

A very nice B/B very clean, nicely decorated. Small touches like fresh fruit in the room , tea and coffee.Pietro went out of his way to give me breakfast, even though left very early every morning. Great place to stay in middle of Palau, would highly recommend it.

I stayed here in August and must say it was one of the best B&B I have ever stayed in! The host can not do enough for you. Pietro is the most wonderful host, makes you feel so welcome and he is very generous with his breakfast. Makes great cappuccinos and whatever you don't eat you can take with you...

We stayed here just for one night. Few steps away from the city centre, this B&B is perfect choice for Palau. The rooms are very nice, bathrooms big and new and impeccably clean. The owner is nice and helpful. The breakfast is so generous that you will not need lunch!

We stayed for 2 nights in September and couldn't find fault with anything- lovely room, great breakfast, friendly welcome and very close to the harbour from where we did a fantastic day trip to the Madellena Islands.

The welcomeing move of Pietro was to move his own car away for our benefit in an area with scant parking possiblilities. Next was his handout of folder material about all possible activities in and around Palau plus a map of town handwritten review with value for money restaurants, the best available boating trips etc. His breakfast table was the...

“Groundfloor appartment has doors opening to the street, good for getting luggage in and out. Street is very quiet. Hardly any traffic”
