A tranquil paradise just outside of the city limits in Martina Franca, Italy. Rooms beautiful, large for European standards. The restaurant on site is wonderful. The grounds a setting for beautiful weddings. Enjoy touring during the day and dinner with great wines on the terrace under the stars. Hotel is equipped with a restaurant, fitness room, outdoor pool and a... More

Too bad, because this could be a fantastic hotel and resort, but the service - even if the staff members are friendly and nice - is absolutely incompetent and can not meet the expectations of the guests. We saw a guest checking out because they just couldn't understand him (he was american and spoke very slowly and "basic" to the... More

1. Rooms. We had the Deluxe, it was good, large spacious, adequate cupboard space. 2. Food. Very poor standard and tiny portions for what you pay for and choice was very limited, not much of a breakfast, pies and cakes for breakfast, a bit of fruit and thats about it, anything extra like eggs had to be paid for.

The building, rooms, garden and restaurant were very tastefully decorated (in room 109 with balcony) but situated on a busy road This is not a five star hotel, service and amenities severely lacking! NO room service, after 2.30pm chef had gone home and no more food served till 8pm! Had to find a supermarket to get some food! Drinks service,... More

Stayed here for a week as a base for Martina Franca an the surrounding area and would be happy to stay again. Our room was large, with a balcony and with sufficient storage and hangers for two people on an extended holiday, which I find rare in hotels. One of the best items was the air con which was great.... More

Beautiful property with very nice rooms. We had a large room with a balcony overlooking the pool. The location outside of Martina Franca in Puglia is a good central location for touring. However, this hotel is lacking when it comes to the staff and the ambience they create. We have stayed in other Relais and Chateaux properties (Borgo San Felice... More

Relaid Villa San Martino was one of our overnight stops on a recent bike trip in Puglia. This hotel is considered a 5 star property and yes, there is a lovely lobby, beautiful dining room and awesome rose garden but that's about it! Slimy green swimming pool, hot rooms that are very small and ours had dirty handprints all over... More

The hotel is set in a lovely location with attractive gardens and grounds. However, our room had a strong odour of mildew. The telephone had no signal and the wifi access only worked if I took my Ipad to the main lobby. Also the electricity had a problem in the spa, so there was no hot water in the hot... More

This february we had the hotel almost just for ourself during 5 days. We could enjoy the beautifully decorated lobby and dining room, the tastefully furnished room with a large terrace and the charming park. An ideal location, just outside Martina Franca center, to visit Valle d'Itria's many places of interest

This Relais Chateux property is a perfect place to stay when visiting the Trulli in Alberobella. Very elegant and authentic. We only stayed one night while on a bike trip so I can't comment on prices or dinners. We ate at a fabulous little taverna in Locorotondo.
