Excelsior Hotel La Fonte
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Portonovo
Reviewed 21 July 2016

We stayed on a B and B basis as we were visiting friends. The breakfast was buffet style and suited everyone. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and English was spoken by mos, although we were the only English people there. The pool was beautiful and there were plenty of sun beds. It is only a short, flat walk to the beach, which is very scenic. I particularly liked walking past the small lake to see the turtles and dragonflies. You will probably need a car to visit the Marche sights as there aren't any easy ways of getting around otherwise.

My partner and I spent 10 days travelling around Italy, and this hotel was by far the most spectacular.

It is set against the most beautiful backdrop of mountains, with the ocean just a short walk away.

The staff were friendly, rooms clean and furbished with airconditioning and balconies overlooking the terraces and mountains.

We lounged by the most beautiful pool while sipping on cocktails.

The nearby beaches are fantastic and the restaurants great.

I will definitely return to this hotel - only for much longer next time.

A must-visit!!

Helpful service and good breakfast . But the room , 222, was very noisy , roadside and some kind of generator directly outside the window working all the time. Irritating! On the positive side, beach just 5 minutes walk and conero bus linea 94 stops just 50 meters from the hotel, final destination Portonovo baia.

we found ourselves with an extra day in Ancona without any accommodation booked. Found this hotel on last minute bookings had no real idea what it was going to be like so thought we would give it a try.
Initially it was like being a faulty towers episode with a receptionist that spoke no English, a hotel room that had the smallest shower I have ever seen let alone used and I could hear my neighbours talking for most of the night.
The beach was nice and handy only a few minuets walk
Loved the swimming pool and lounge chairs, but make sure you get you ticket at reception for your swim cap and towel prior to going to the pool otherwise it can be a very long conversation to explain the situation.
