Opened in 1997 by an expatriate Italian businessman and actor, the hotel was seen as the best one in the area, however, since the original buyer passed away, very little of the hotel's glitzy hey-day remains. Today, the hotel is run by the owner's wife and daughter.
Mr Piergiorgio originally bought the land to build a holiday home; the original building - the Victorian style casa - is still intact, although apart from a couple of tacky souvenir shops, it is no longer in use.
The Piergiorgio may have been a labour of love for its original owner, and might still be a symbol of love for his wife and daughter, but the truth is that something needs to happen to inject a bit of life back into the hotel. It doesn't look quite abandoned, but it does need a complete makeover for it to appeal to today's clientele.
The hotel has two buildings - the original part of the hotel with its grand staircase, and the newer addition, a basic block of rooms around the main pool. There is a lovely restaurant and gazebo where weddings used to take place, and the raised promenade and balconies of the hotel line the crystal clear waters below.
In terms of facilities, there isn't much else to speak of apart from complimentary Wi-Fi internet access throughout the hotel and swimming pool.
