We loved Hotel Carol and Rimini. We just got back from Italy a few days ago. I traveled with three children (ages 7,9 and 11) and three adults. We had two rooms on the third floor. Our rooms were very small but tidy and sunny with great storage. The room had one double bed and a set of bunk beds. I saw that someone else was upset with this layout but it was perfect for us. Our room was clean and smelled just fine. The hotel is located about a block and a half from Rivabella Beach #1. Now it is true that the heart of the "action" on the beaches in Rimini is about a mile away, but we enjoyed the quieter section of Rimini. The staff at the hotel was extremely friendly to us, we speak very little Italian and they spoke little English but we got along just fine. THEY COULD NOT HAVE BEEN NICER!!!
The pool was small but fine for our children. The beach was great and we rented three chairs and an umbrella for six days for about 90 E. The children's program was lots of fun and Anaais did a great job. She made our girls feel included in spite of a gigantic language barrier. We loved the family atmosphere on the beach as well. There was always something fun going on, games, dancing, water aerobics, etc. We found ourselves dancing on the beach with Grandmothers, Grandfathers, teenagers, kids, Moms and Dads from all over the world! We did not see any other American tourists.
Rimini is not an upscale beach resort by any means. We loved it for this. The food and wine were cheap and excellent. We went to the HUGE market on Saturday and shopped and haggled and had a great time. We walked on the beach and played on the playgrounds all along the back of the beach (free for all kids). We rode the "dragon" and slid on the waterslides. It was just an all around great time!
