Masseria San Domenico is situated 500 metres from the Adriatic Sea and housed in a whitewashed, XVth century watch-tower set against a backdrop of olive groves, orchards and Apulian seascapes. An impressive free-form seawater pool flows its way through the grounds and the 2 exclusive beaches (one sandy one rocky) allows guests to soak up some sun without the crowds. The SPA and Thalasso centre relies on the same salty seawater to fuel thalassotherapy and balneotherapy-focused offerings, in addition to providing a full menu of massages, facials and body treatments. The more actives can tee-off at the 18-hole golf course overlooking the Adriatic or burn off calories in the gym. To refuel, dinners don't get more romantic than at San Domenico Restaurant, with its 18th-century vaulted ceiling, or at La Nassa, a very fine dining seafood restaurant on the water edge. At the end of the day, elegantly furnished rooms and suites make a restful sanctuary with rich fabrics, colours and textures

Stayed here for a week booked as a last minute much needed break and it was not cheap..... At just an hour from the airport (Bari- believe Brindisi is closer we just too late to book) and situated in amazingly beautiful grounds it was the ideal place for a weeks R&R. The accommodation is excellent. We had a suite with huge amounts of space, two bathrooms; enormous and comfortable bed and a lovely view out onto courtyard. Serviced twice a day beautifully. The bathroom products made from olive oil from the Masseria itself - my hair and skin has never felt so healthy. So far so good. The grounds too are stunning. Lots of space. Despite the hotel being full you never felt crowded. None of this bagging sunbeds nonsense- everyone very respectful. Guests from all nationalities but mainly French, German, Australian and British. We stayed by (the fabulous) pool most days as were put off going to the beach (hotel has access to 2 beach clubs) due to the main road on access to hotel being strewn with plastic, litter etc. Hotel, whilst not directly responsible, should be aware of how this looks (and smells) to the visitor. Service from pool chaps very indifferent unless you are a regular. Two days I had to fetch own towels, put up brolly etc. Sounds highly trivial but in other 5 star properties this is a given, as well as checking for drinks etc. Pool bar service better, led by Ricardo and assisted by Lea and Ella. The food at the pool bar is limited. Salads and panini but fine for lunch time and some lovely 1000 year olive trees to sit under. Pizza only avail on Thursday and Saturday for some reason. We didn’t want to big buffet for lunch so we were bored after a few days. The real let down is the food at both breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is very average and as others have mentioned you have to bizarrely pay for an omelette but can have bacon and eggs for free. We paid nearly £1000 a night ..... Dinner was poor. We ate there twice, first night as could not be bothered to go out and again on a rainy evening. For this area it should be so much better and indeed they were the least enjoyable meals of the trip (try locanda di felisciano - delicious both times we went and full of locals. - worth the cab ride ) The bar in the evening is good fun. A very jolly pianist and nice cocktails. Rico looked after us well. WiFi in the grounds is poor and they should be a bit stricter on guests loudly on their phones (one main culprit who happily left 3 days into our trip) If you are looking for a rest in beautiful and well maintained property then this is a good place to be. We are in our mid 40s and were certainly in the younger 10% of guests which didn’t worry us but there is not a lot of life after 10pm. Would return but maybe for a long weekend rather than a whole week. Feel well slept and relaxed. Just sort the food out!

We were not staying here but went for dinner. It was a really wonderful setting, out in the garden on the terrace for drinks first with lovely live music at just the right level. Dinner was overlooking the pool and garden. We had a superb meal, service was exemplary and very friendly. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here from 29 June to 6 July this year. The hotel has about 40 rooms. Our suite was very comfortable. The staff are very efficient and very friendly. We will definitely stay here again. The gardens and swimming pool are beautiful. If you want a quiet holiday with no young children in sight then this is the place for you.

Gorgeous hotel that belongs to the same owner of Borgo Egnazia, but much authentic, but both hotels are first rate. Service is friendly and excellent. Beautifully decorated with an eye to detail. Bikes are available whenever you want them. Beautiful rooms that open up to a patio with jasmine and beautiful flowers. The landscaping of the whole property is sensational. There's perfume in the air from the flowers wherever you go. Unbelievable pool, but not heated. Excellent service at breakfast. Super comfortable. A place to stay for a week easy. On the negative side - No coffee machine in the room. Omeletes incur an extra charge at breakfast, but scrambled eggs do not, which is sort of silly. Plus being that rates are high it's also silly to charge for an omelete. Salmon also only available at an extra cost. (At the Borgo both are part of the buffet). Other than that, breakfast is complete and very generous, with a vast array of cakes, pastries, cheeses, cereals, fruit etc etc.

We spent a night here during Easter holidays. We two rooms, one for me and husband and the other for our 12 years old boy as it wasn't possible to have a room for the 3 of us. The only good thing about this place is that is close enough to Borgo Egnazia so that you can have a cocktail or dinner there. The waiter looked me with a wondering face when, after the fixed menu poor dinner, I asked for a dessert. The only thing that they were able to give me was an iced slice of Cassata that was impossible to cut. The gardens haven't seen the the gardener since months and overall you could feel the lack of details cure in everything. It was sunny and warm so we asked to have breakfast outside: not possible!
