“Happy to be here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Well, I read many reviews about this hotel and sincerely I expected an old and sad "beach hotel". So I booked with no enthusiasm a room by booking.com.
But I was pleased to find a place a little old but confortable. The receptionists are professional (except for one not so good) and the facilities are on an avarage level.
The swimming pool is decent and the beach is small but nice enough. What I found very good is the fact that you can walk from you room to the beach in less than 1 min.
The rooms: the hotel is a 5 storey 70 building. One side looks at the sea, the other one faces the parking place. When You book you MUST ask for a room facing the sea because the view is very good and relaxing. All te rooms are "aged" but decent. The Air Conditioning works but ay high speed is noisy. The tv set is good and the bed was confortable.
The bathroom is aged too and a little bit sad but all works.
If you want to stay in a tipical hotel I suggest you to find one of the astonishing "masserie" in the country. If you love to be in front of the sea this hotel is good.

Room Tip: absolutely ask for a room facing the sea

On a positive note-the pool area and beach were very nice, and the reception and bar staff was very polite. That's where the positives end.

We found the restaurant staff and some of the housekeeping staff to be rude. One one occasion, we walked into the restaurant and were sat by a waitress. Then a waiter came over and very rudely told us we couldn't sit at that table because it was reserved and demanded that we moved. I told him that the waitress sat us down, and then he changed his tune. I have no issue with moving to another table, but I have an issue with his attitude and rudeness.All this, and the breakfast was not very good. On another occasion, the housekeeping staff came into our room very early on the day we were to check out. We told them (in Italian, no less) that we were checking out at 10am and asked them to clean the room after we left.Yet the same person unlocked out door a bit later to try and clean our room. They seemed to be keen on doing as they please. On another note- the "air conditioning" is Italian air conditioning, meaning it's not very strong at all.

Room Tip: close the bathroom door in your room- it will help with the "AC"

Its everything you could hope for in a seafront hotel. The pool was under-used as the beach was so nice. It is beautifully sandy and the sea is very shallow for quite a long way out. There are a few rocks but you can soon find the best way in and out. The public beach next door can get extremely crowded especially at weekends and its quite noisy with the chatter of people so don't go there if you are looking for peace and quiet!
Another reviewer stated that Torre Canne is better looked at from a distance, we did walk into the town one afternoon and there was little to recommend it. I understand that there are plans to redevelop some of the seafront around the tower which will make it quite a feature.
You need to hire a car as there are some lovely places to visit within half an hour.
The village of Alberobello with the small white trulli houses is a must see. There is also the huge cave complex of Grotte de Castellana. We spent 1 hour and 45 minutes on the 3km tour and the stalactites and stalagmites were quite incredible. There are also plenty of other towns like Cisternino, Ostuni and Martina Franca which are interesting to stroll around. A few miles up the coast from Torre Canne there are the roman ruins of Egnathia and an interesting museum to look around. There are also plenty of little rocky bays in which to go for a swim in this area.
Its a great place for a holiday, the staff are friendly and efficent.
During my stay I noticed that the guests were mostly older Italians though the hotel seems to able to cope well with a variety of nationalities.
The food was good and if you want to go out in the evening you can change over and have a lunch.
My tip would be pay more and have a room with a sea view, the sunrise in the morning and the lovely view will make for a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sea view.

Ok, the bad bits first:
# The hotels air conditioning was poor. We got the engineer out and he said it was fine but we boiled in our room every night, which to be honest was a real problem.
# Torre Canne is VERY POPULAR With Italians and so the beach gets really, really crowded and quite lively.
# The guests are 90% Italian Oldies, which we were fine about - but if you are a youngster, it could be an issue.
# Getting in and out of the sea can be a bit tricky because there are some rocks, but once you've figured your route out, it's fine.
# Rooms with a sea view get the extra benefit of loud music until 11:30pm each night
The good bits:
# The hotel is really clean and bright. It looks freshly done over and the staff are friendly with one or two English speaking.
# It's right on the beach, with plenty of sun beds and acres of blue sky and hot sun (fab!)
# The food is a curious mix - some of it (well most of it actually) was really good, with some lovely pasta dishes. The problem was that they couldn't seem to get a whole meal right. We had some very iffy dishes - a fish dish that was terrible. On the whole though it was great - all waiter served too, which is a nice touch.
# The rooms are 'ok'. They are clean and functional and the sea views are amazing, but they have this weird thing were some rooms don't have balconies and due to a mix up with Citalia, we had a room with a view, but no balcony - which just feels odd with a holiday hotel.
# We liked our stay at Del Levante, but it was marred some by the lack of air con (we actually left for four days!, because we got sick of not being able to sleep) and the mix up over our room allocation (which want the hotels fault in fact). Nice place but, unfortunately we wouldn't go back.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony

Just back from a 2 week stay in Del Levante (June 2012). It was all we thought it would be from reading previous reports. Rooms clean, tidy, beds good and firm. The view from our balcony was fantastic! The blue sea, The Port, The beach.
Pool great size and clean. Beach was good with warm water. Staff there to put up your loungers and parasol. The local windsurfing school next door, very friendly.
Dinning room. Excellent. All locally sourced ingredients, so a real treat and change. Be warned though, I never saw a Hamburger, Hot dog, French Fry or fish finger the entire time. There is a Pizza place next door though.
We will be going back

Room Tip: You need a car. You need to "Try some Italian". This is a real old Italian, unspoilt town...

We stayed three nights and really got well tanned as there was a good breeze to keep you cool. Very pleasant hotel and we upgraded ourselves to a room facing the sea with magnificent views of the coast and town of Torre Canne. Very efficiently run with masses of sun beds, deckchairs, umbrellas and very willing staff to help you to where you want to sit - by the beach, under the trees, by the pool (only 5 foot deep). Food was excellent locally prepared and dining staff also very efficient. There was an excellent pizza and light lunch area, overlooking the sea, but was underused - perhaps too breezey. This is a seaside hotel with not a lot else to do (see the Trulli houses and the extensive caves) apart from walking up and down the beach and having a lazy time. The village of Torre Canne has nothing special to offer - looks better from a distance.

Room Tip: The hotel has two sides - the sea and the 'garden', i.e.the carpark! So choose the sea ever...

We stayed for 3 days, the hotel was nice but our room was over the carpark and very dark indeed and had no balcony. If you need a cab try and order a local cab and not through the hotel as they quoted us Eur 49 to take us on a 10 minute journey with we got for Eur 20. The pool area is lovely but beware on the beach as the sea is full of rocks, but the lifeguard was very helpful and pointed out the best place to go into the sea. Overall a good hotel and staff very attentive.
