Just below a five-star rating overall, customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with some travelers commenting on how relaxing the experience is from start to finish, while others said they liked to escape from the busiest parts of Venice.

“Our island offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature just ten minutes by boat from the mainland. Additionally, we find ourselves isolated from the rest of civilization where phones, engagements, and Wi-Fi become redundant. The feedback that is mainly reported to us by our customers is that the island offers the opportunity to disconnect from the usual stressful life and the problems associated with it. Many customers want to come back before they even leave! ” Anna Sarzetto, one of the hostesses on the island told Lonely Planet.
