Concierge.com's insider take:
This 25-room, five-suite hotel is housed in a tastefully restored 18th-century convent. The decor pushes the nunnish parallels, with scraped and sponged pastel walls and post-medieval details. Yet the delightful swimming pool and restaurant terrace are anything but sisterly, and in a suite called La Vicaria, a basket of condoms beside the oversized sunken bathtub encourages visitors to break any vows of chastity. Both this and the Santavenere hotel are under the ownership of Mondo Maratea.
