My family stayed at Le Meridiane for a week before my mother's destination wedding took place in Vasto. This place is definitely not your normal beach resort. Upon arriving, we we're welcomed by the staff with open arms, and brought to our rooms which we had requested an extra cot to accommodate our larger family size. We had 3 rooms in total for our large family and friends, all of which we equipped with kitchen ware, a fridge, and a moka pot to make espresso in the room. The restaurant had a great selection of pizzas and pastas to choose from, although personally, I preferred the pizzas. With a mall about 2 minutes away, you could easily buy your own food and cook a meal yourself in your apartment, or even barbecue using the central fire-pits. As for lunch, I enjoyed the pastas with sugo di pomodoro (tomato sauce), while I found the sugo di burro (butter sauce) a little bland. The staff are absolutely terrific in service, enthusiasm, and friendliness. Although I do not speak Italian, I was able to communicate with many of the staff members, and they even tried to help me learn some Italian. The owner graciously allowed us to use the restaurant for space to accommodate the wedding guests after the ceremony before the dinner which took place in Vasto. The owner is extremely friendly, and I had many great conversations with him during my stay. The entertainment consisted of beach games, Zoomba for kids/adults, water aerobics, and shows/games that were put on every night. For adults they allowed dancing till around midnight every night as long as people are there to dance! They also have a large court that you can play tennis or soccer on, not to mention their large pool, and cart ride service to the beach.
Over all, I thought this place was a fanastic getaway for a family looking to explore the Pescara/Vasto region of Italy, with some need of down time to relax. I would definitely come back here to this not so normal Italian resort!
