We just returned from hotel Da Pipa. The view from the seaview rooms was really great! The rooms were cleaned well. The standard rooms were a disappointment. So I recommend to book the seaview rooms in advance. Out of the 3 weeks that we stayed at Pipa we had some cloudy weather for only 3 days. Besides that the days usually started/ended with a 10 minutes shower of rain and some clouds. That didn't bother us at all. At Trattoria di Francesco we had some nice meals several time. I definately recommend it if you want to have a nice meal. The food at the hotel was a bit of a disappointment. The breakfast was simple, yet good (fruit, fruit juice, bread, eggs, tea, coffee, buns, cheese and ham).
