This is a safe, secure and exclusive enclave about 10 kilometers south east of downtown Taranto, on the tip of Capo San Vito. The property is gated and fenced, and accessed only by lock and key 24 hours a day. It also offers a popular fitness center and several indoor pools (although no outdoor pool). Located across the street from an Italian naval base, it has a predictable number of guests associated with the military. It also shares, during the summer months, a private beach club owned by the navy, about a 400 meters from the property. In general, however, the beach in this part of the Bay of Taranto is rather grungy. Tursport represents good value for money, in my experience, as they provide small studio apartment with adequate kitchen facilities (two hot plates, no oven). The property is only a few years old, and most facilities seem to be modern, up to date, and fully functioning. One reviewer complained here about a constantly barking dog; that dog does exist, and it does indeed bark all night, every night; but it seems to be located off-property, so I don't think it is fair to ding the Tursport for it. I appreciated the secure, free parking, and the free internet in the lobby (but no signal in the rooms). I recommend a car, although the city bus has stops adjacent to the property. I did not try the restaurant but it seemed popular and attracted a good crowd from outside the facility. A small neighborhood with a supermercado, several restaurants, a bakery and a daily sidewalk fruit market are nearby.
