Assuming you know what to expect I think this is a pretty great vacation hotel -- lovely room, good beach, great food. Excellently run and managed. The only warning is that the hotel is modern and some people clearly expected a more rustic/palatial experience. Punta Ala is a purpose built vacation community. Understand that and you will find Gallia Palace... More

Very old hotel! The rooms are shabby and old fashioned! The beach is very far from hotel. Every time you need to wait for shuttle bus that takes you to the beach. The food is a la buffet on the beach. Too expensive :50 euro per adult. Drinks are not included. Beach is crowded with people! I would never recommend... More

This is a superb hotel. The location is just lovely. The service was universally friendly and efficient. The food was of the highest order. We had just spent three full days in Rome. The drive will take at least two and a half hours on a clear run. Longer if there is traffic as we found out to our cost... More

We stayed in that hotel for a week with our two children. This is a very nice hotel in a fantastic location. The plus are clearly the beach and the swimming pool. The beach is extremely nice with beautiful pine trees and a very nice restaurant in some kind of a hut (the beach area is protected and it seems... More

Exellent Hotel, good Food, beautiful private beach with very good lunch buffet. Overall there is no complain. The Service is exellent and very friendly. Ideal time of the year is Juni, because there are few People in the area. We will certainly book for next june.

My family have just come back from our third visit to this wonderful hotel, and I expect there shall be a lot more. The fact that it is noted as a Relais & Chateaux hotel justifies a visit enough; and even though other reviewers may state that it is not a 'normal' R&C hotel, this is by no means a... More

We have just returned from our third visit to this wonderful hotel, and we cannot wait until our next visit. Beautiful beach, kind, courteous service, extremely comfortable accommodation and glorious food - we cannot fault it on any level.

Criteria to be a Relais Chateau is the basic 5C's. Comfort, Calm, Courtesy, Cuisine and Charm. I am sorry to say that it had only Cuisine and Courtesy as its major pluses . It was extremely noisy. The rooms lacked charm and had a hard bed. It was not comfortable. I expected so much more than what was offered. This... More

why fly hours and hours if one of the most beautiful, finest beaches at 6hours by car from home (switzerland). The hotel is located in the very Italian town of Punta Ala where a lot of Italians are on holidays too. Some call Punta Ala the St.Moritz of the beaches. The nearby porto - 10' from the hotel spreads a... More
