Great place to come and relax or party. Depends on what you wish to do. The days can start early or late and end early or very late. A typical day goes like this. Get up around 9 am for a light continental breakfast in the dinning room. Head to the lido (beach full of umbrellas and chairs for a... More

I have been many times to the Grand Hotel President in Siderno Italy. I have a great time when I come because i let whatever happens to be going on not bother me. I adapt and thrive. Nights are long and hot as those that still party go out around midnight and come back in time for primo colazioni. I... More

Can't really say a lot of negative about the hotel. However it is a three not a four star by any means possible. It is a motel six. Not even a holiday inn. It is the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff is friendly and the hotel is clean. The beach is great. But definitely more family... More

Perhaps this hotel is four stars by European standards, but not by American. Rooms are good size, but sparse in furnishings and amenities. This is the nicest hotel in the area. Beautiful pool & gardens. Breakfast was passable, but not great, even by European standards. Be ready for loud shows outside til near 12 at nite in summer. Very clean.... More

The staff in this attractive and comfortable hotel went out of their way to welcome us and be of assistance in any way needed. Views from the rooms with balconies were great!. . . . a lovely property with palms, shrubs, flowers, etc. or the Ionian Sea. We were with a group of 34 on a Seniors Tour vacation with... More

This is a nice hotel well situated on the main coastal road between Taranto and Villa San Giovanni. Staff were friendly and supportive, the hotel room was a reasonable but not overly large, bed was comfortable, wifi worked well, bathroom OK. It was a little more expensive than what we would normally have paid but, in late winter, not too... More

This hotel has passed its use-by date. It is shabby and tired, and seems like they haven't upgraded anything since 1975. The pool was dirty, and the grounds were generally overgrown. In the room, the control panel on the bedhead that was probably high-tech thirty years ago didn't work properly, so we couldn't control the air conditioning or use any... More

My wife and I traveled to Southern Italy in a group of 35 in search of our ancestors (and to visit a few select sights). This hotel was our third on the 2-week tour. The location was fine; the food was sub-par; the pool was above average and the walk to the beach was fine. However, THE ELEVATORS could only... More

I am from Montreal Canada and had the pleasure of staying at the Grand Hotel President for 2 weeks in August 2013. We have been to this region many times before, as my family is from the area, and I can say that the hotel and services offered exceeded any expectations we had before arriving.
