Not as advertised by Expedia
This is not an hotel but an Italian holiday camp where Italians return to year after year. Few staff speak good English - German is the preferred second language as TUI (Thomsons) Germany send guests here. There is no restaurant but a self service buffet in a canteen - the food was okay but not great for vegetarians. The free wine with meals you are offered really is undrinkable - it comes pumped out a metal barrel! It is very isolated and if you don't have your own transport there is nowhere to go. You could order a very expensive taxi but there is no guarantee you'll get one to take you back. We arrived by train at Carovigno station - the most remote station I've ever seen and the holiday resort is over 7km away, We only made it after a kind local gave us a lift. Attempts to ring the hotel ahead of our arrival were met with no response.

Great hotel but could be better!
Overall very good but breakfast clear up is very prompt. Ended at 0930 but at 0910 the big clear up commmenced and instead of clearing dirty tables they cleared the food first. No not how it's done! Beach and pool excellent and great overall family holiday.

It's hotel not for turists but business meetings
Brand new hotel. Actually not whole territory is finished, a lot of workers are everywhere. Staff is very basic in English. Room (we had family room) is not so big as we expect. Food looks nice but was not tasty. The vine was horrible, it's shame on owners regarding the price for adequate vine in the shops (2-3 euro for the bottle). Beach is in 15 minutes walking distance, dirty and mostly rocky.

Ottimo week-end
È stato tutto molto bello tranne che x la solita puzza di muffa nella stanza.

L’hotel vanta una buona posizione e un buon servizio navetta per la spiaggia. La camera non è pulitissima, le asciugamani sono in cotone sottilissimo come andavano di moda 50 anni fa.... il cibo è buono ma servito stile mensa operai e la sala da pranzo molto chiassosa. Il personale disponibile
