The hotel was very clean, the rooms were spacious, cool and well maintained but it did feel a little souless at times. The hotel only opened this year and there were some teething problems. The hotel is situated about 2km from the centre of Lecce and we didn't have a car ( even if we did parking in Lecce is not easy without a permit) . The walk into town is not too far but the road is a main road, unlit and without pavements, so it didn't feel very safe after dark. Taxis in Lecce are very expensive and not overly reliable. When we asked about taxis we were told that they are currently looking into setting up a shuttle service for next summer to rectify this issue.
The outdoor pool was lovely, breakfast was generous and offered a wide choice of options. Staff were always friendly and willing to help, but not always able to answer our questions.
We would recommend the hotel, but only if you plan on driving yourself.
