“Relaxing hotel in idyllic setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

Room was basic, but adequate for our short stay. Very peaceful, relaxed location with the added bonus of sharing the facilities of the Flamingo Hotel next door. Staff were very friendly and helpful and food was enjoyable, though not sure if menu was typically Italian? Beautiful beach and pools very clean. Great having free use of sunbeds and parasols! Car essential if wanting to visit shops and restaurants, due to remote situation of hotels. Would definitely revisit in the future.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2010

I can't complain about the rooms - they were clean, a fair size and the towels were changed daily. The shower door was broken and the bidet wobbled which was a little concerning! The location was amazing, the beach was gorgeous and the sea was beautiful. The hotels deckchairs (not sun loungers) on the beach are in a quieter part of the beach than the hotels sister resort, The Flamingo, which we found ideal. As a guest at the Mare Pineta you can use the facilities of The Flamingo which, as a four star is a lot nicer. To get there you walk through a wooded area over a bridge (3 minutes) past a rather unpleasant-smelling drain so hold your nose! Next to the Flamingo there is a campsite where you can eat in their small pizzeria. The pizza is great the beer is cheap and cold and much better value than the beer at either hotel and the service is quick! The food at Mare Pineta was distinctly average and was a big let down. I would have preferred a range of pasta dishes, pizzas etc - a simpler menu is needed not food that is trying to sound four-star but really, really isn't. My advice - go bed and breakfast, eat at the campsite for lunch, hire a car and find a good traditional restaurant elesewhere.
