Leuca is a lovely little town right on the heel of the Salento peninsula. It has a nice number of restaurants, without being too large. The Messapia hotel complex is beautiful - the pool and view is amazing. Our apartment was very good, right near the pool, the restaurant was great (catering for coeliacs). The staff were very friendly and... More

Everything you need is in Santa Maria di Leuca and in the Messapia Resort. You have peace and quiet as the village is authentic Italian and there is no traffic or whatever noise sources. As for the Messapia resort, the pool is amazing, the food in the Pizzeria is delicious. The pizzas are heavenly and the fish is fresh and... More

This is a rather large complex with both apartments and hotel rooms. Our apartment was quite simple (as in most similar places) but clean and functional. The hotel pizzeria served very good pizzas. We liked that the pool has salt water but apart from that, being at the pool is not a very pleasant experience unless you like loud music... More

You need a hat to use the swimmingpool. Bought in the poolbar. Great sandwiches in the poolbar. No new towels in four nights. Sweet but quite good breakfast. The restaurant/pizzeria was ok, But no pizza for lunch.

A large resort with decent parking, a big pool and large rooms. The pool is salt water which I really liked, it had an animation team and a reasonably priced bar. Our room was big with great AC but with some signs of wear and tear. The shower rail was disconnected from the stand the towels had holes and the... More

This hotel is a bit more then 10 years old and that is visible. The rooms or better appartments are spacious but the furniture is dated and used, so some parts risks to not work. They have a big and nice swimmingpool , but also here you can see that the paint from the bottom is coming loose. They love... More
