I stayed at the Hotel Palazzo Papaleo for a 6-night stay in Otranto, Italy. Since I was traveling alone, I wanted a safe, relaxing place near the sea. My expectations were surpassed at the Hotel Palazzo Papaleo! This gorgeous, boutique hotel was once the summer home of the Papaleo family, renovated and opened in 2007. Located in the old town it was a stone's throw to the sea. What stands out about my stay at Hotel Palazzo Papaleo was the hotel staff. Dario, the manager, and his staff, treated me like a queen. Each and every hotel employee, from the front desk to the housekeepers, to chef Antonio, went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. Each morning I looked forward to the beautiful breakfast buffet with homemade italian cakes, as well as healthy selections, served in an elegant dining room. Morning cappuccinos were served by the wonderful staff. An added surprise was the tiny 5-star restaurant in the hotel serving dinner a few nights a week. One evening chef Antonio prepared, especially for me, a local fish dish with a side of legumes and chicory from the rich farming and fishing region of Salento. I cannot wait to visit Otranto again during spring or summer, to dine on the hotel's roof-top deck overlooking the sea. (Ps. The hotel does not have a pool as is marked below. But it does have a hot tub on the roof.)
