The location is perfect if the purpose of your trip is to visit the shrine. Ours was to explore the spectacular Gargano region. For this reason, the hotel was not convenient.
The 24 hour reception staff was friendly and excellent...offering advice for exploring the area, maps, limoncello as an evening drink to enjoy on the outdoor patio. The dining staff was equally excellent. The breakfast was fine with good choices, attentive service and delicious coffee. However we found the dinner both expensive and only adequate...some hits/ some misses. The restaurants in the immediate area of the hotel close quite early in conjunction with sanctuary hours. It proved much better for us to drive into the town of San Giovanni , partake in the most authentic passigiato we encountered in Italy and have pizza and ice cream.
The room itself,while spare, was large,immaculate and offered every convenience: AC,wi-fi,large closet,luggage rack, nicely appointed bathroom with well-functioning shower,hair dryer etc. Linens and towels were of excellent quality. We had very nice views from both bedroom and bathroom. In addition our room was surrounded by large sunny terraces but deck furniture ( chairs,table etc) are necessary to make this space usable.
There is a large parking area with immediate acess to the hotel. There is a lift.The entire property is light and airy and sparkling clean.
We drove from SGR along the coast to Vieste...the stunning scenery can not be imagined even if seen in pictures...it must be experienced.Our stop at the beach at Baia Di Vignantica was a high point of our trip. We circled back to SGR through the Foresta Umbra, driving along steep and windy roads and through beautiful valleys.
For the purpose of our trip, we would have done better to stay along the coast. Our goal to use SGR as a hub for hiking etc. did not prove to be convenient. However if you are visiting for the purpose of visiting the shrine, the location is perfect.
It was great to visit this somewhat off the beaten track area and do recommend it.
