We had done no research about Durres and thought that it was perhaps a quiet little fishing village, but rather it's like a low rise Waikiki. We walked up and down the beach looking at the exteriors of other properties and the Dolce Vita has by far the nicest grounds and pool area with plenty of seating, coffee and drinks... More

This hotel is great for any venue! We enjoyed a fantastic 4 day Wedding with all our guests from Europe and especially from Scandinavia and they all loved the hotel, the staff and the great location. We can warmly recommend this hotel for a great stay in Durres, Albania.

The place is good if you are in Durres, the pool is small but clean. The food is tasty and the service was ok. the prices are average for the area there. parking secure, in the same time you can use the sea (because it is close to the hotel)

If you don't mind terrible loud music mixing with some albanian rhytms from surrounding hotels, this is a great place to stay. However the music was so terrible that it ruined every night. The hotel was sometimes literally shivering from the beats, windows offer almost no soundproofing. If you do not mind lack of good sleep, this hotel is probably... More

Should you be in Durres then this hotel is extremely comfortable and all the staff do their best to help. The food is good and the hotel very clean and well maintained, with a lovely garden onto the beach. We stayed in May before the season really began so there was no loud music at all. Very good value and... More

The hotel is very nice and comfortable, make sure to get rooms overlooking the sea! The view is amazing!. All rooms have a balcony. The service is courteous and they speak English and German as well. The breakfast is a bit bland (and the omlette is cold), but their restaurant serves excellent meals and you can sit in their beautiful,... More

The hotel is very clean and the food is great. But apart from that it has many, many disadvantages. First of all, the TOO LOUD MUSIC that goes on and on till 1h in the morning. This is great for people who came to dance and have fun, but can't they put soundproof windows or something to protect other guests,... More
