“Fantastic Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2008

What an amazing hotel this was!
Ideal for a holiday to Italy located nearby to the beach and many other tourist attractions including Venice, Verona and Jesolo Village. If you wanted to travel a little further afield, there is always Lake Garda, with some absolutely fantastic scenery and views.

A quick walk from the hotel and you're at the beach. Each hotel in the area has its own designated area of the beach (which is approximately 11 miles long), Hotel Sheila has an area for its holiday makers to sunbathe down by the sea, or sit and relax!

The hotel was recently refurbished in 2006, and has been well looked after since. Each apartment has its own balcony area, perfect for sitting out on to watch the sunset after a busy day of touring!

Public transport is also very easy to get to. The bus stop is a short walk away although you have to buy your bus passes from the local newsagents. We used the buses to get to Punta Sabbioni (where the ferry docks from) and from there, the ferry takes you directly to Venice whereby you can tour St. Marcs Square, and the narrow alleyways of shops and restaurants; Or even over the bridges to watch Gondolas travelling below you. Venice is a place you must visit, if you have time!

If you booked Self Catering, then try out some of the nice restaurants in the surrounding area, there’s plenty of restaurants and snack bars along the main street for you to keep busy!
At night time, the main street opens up and becomes pedestrianised, so that no vehicles are allowed to pass through; all of the shops, restaurants and bars open so that you’re free to explore at your own pleasure!

Going back to the hotel, the rooms are very spacious, in the main room, the bed can be folded away to form a sofa, and the spare bed also pulls down from what looks like a cupboard!
The kitchen came fully equipped with all of the necessary utensils, a microwave, fridge-freezer, kettle, oven hobbs and a dishwasher (if you’re going to use the dishwasher, bring some tablets along, these can be difficult to locate in the Italian supermarkets!). Also equipped in both rooms were LCD TVs, with a wide selection of channels, including Sky News & BBC News and electric lockers, which are provided free of charge to keep any valuables safe during your stay.

Both rooms had separate balconies, which could be accessed via the rear of the rooms. The doors onto the balcony and windows all had electric shutters, enabling you to press a button to expand or retract them. When closed, they keep the room sound-proofed so you can’t hear anything that’s going on outside. The balconies both had tables and chairs, thus the main balcony included a washing maiden.
The pool in the hotel is relatively large and is open until midnight, allowing you to relax perfectly on a hot summer’s day in Jesolo – although be warned, it can be cold at night!

To sum up, Aparthotel Sheila is a very nice, modern, clean hotel, close to many tourist attractions and local amenities or areas of interest. All of the staff members were very friendly, polite and helpful throughout the course of our stay.
I’d recommend this hotel to any families wishing to travel to a part of Europe with nice weather (in the warmer months) and visit some local attractions.
Alternatively, if you’d just like a quiet holiday by the pool or on the beach, the Sheila Hotel is for you!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2008

Just returned from a weeks stay at the hotel, on arrival you have to pay a deposit of 100 euros which is refundable on checkout. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was clean and spacious, pool area was small and private and quiet throughout the day, the pool is not very deep and there is also a childrens section. The beach is less than 5 mins walk away and is very
clean and also gives you 2 chairs, parasol and table. The resort becomes very busy in the evening especially at weekends.
This hotel is in an ideal location and is rated fairly as a 4 star self catering. We only received maid service once which meant that we had to clean the apartment the rest of the time. The room will be inspected on your checkout so you have to make sure that this is left clean as the hotel staff are quite strict on their inspection, this will determine if they refund your deposit.
This is ideal for families and couples and everything you need is all within a 5 min walk

If you want to get away from the standard package holiday to Italy,this is the place to stay.
You have all the advantages of a hotel, private pool with loungers at no extra charge and the same on the beach front. Nice bar and breakfast area.
But have the advantage of being able to get up when you want to and eat when you want.
For two of us it was perfect, bedroom with ensuite bathroom and another separate bathroom off the living area. Two very large balconies and very very clean. The kitchenette was well stocked.
The local restaurants were all lovely and we were spoilt for choice.
Plenty of local shops at prices lower than home for better quality produce.

Venice was about an hour and a half away on public transport( two buses and a ferry)

Would I stay here again definately but take plenty of mosquito repellent

This hotel was nice and clean, staff were always friendly, only thing that happened was they didnt give us a key to the other part of our apartment so for the first 4 days we thought ours was a lot smaller than it actually was. Also the shower leaked quite alot we had to call the staff up but this seemed to be a problem with most of the apartments...

Would definatly stay in this hotel again if i went back to jesolo lido although i doubt i'd go back, didnt like the place at all. Just got a little bored.

We booked this a few weeks before we went & it was rated 3 star self catering. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived as it had been refurbished & was very clean & modern. The rooms weren't massive but there were2 bathrooms with showers, massive balcony area, both rooms had flat screen TV's. It was only 100 metres from the beach, it did have it's own small pool which was actually nice as it never got that busy. You could buy breakfast & lunch there. Breakfast was 8 euros for an adult, 4 euros for 6-12yr old & under 6's were free. You do have to pay a 100 euro retainer to them which you get back at the end so long as the room has been left as you found it. It was near to plenty of restaurants & other shops so you didn't have to go far for any thing. It was a nice quiet hotel & we did enjoy our stay there.

I have just returned from a two week break in Lido de Jesolo with my husband and two children(11 and 8) - we stayed at the recently refurbished Hotel Sheila on a self catering basis - the standard of the accomodation was fabulous ,and to quote my husband, the only accomodation better than this that we have stayed in is Claridges of London.

There were two spacious rooms with two en-suite shower rooms - perfect when four people are getting ready to go out. The two balconies and two flat screen televisions were also a bonus.
The staff were very friendly and we spent most days at the pool, which was very quiet and a section of it shaded over by mid afternoon which was perfect for us as we burn easily.The hotels section of the beach was also great our children spent a lot of time in the water while we enjoyed the sun loungers.The hotel bar was opened all day and it was very pleasant sitting there at night.

The self catering facilities were well eqipped and to my surprise there was even a dishwasher.- We didnt cook much but found out in the second week that most of the local restaurants supplied take aways so we ate in our lovely air conditioned room.

This holiday was so good we had no doubts about returning and have already booked for next year.

  • Liked — The pool
  • Disliked — Towel change was only once a week - I would have paid more for more frequent changes
