This Hotel is very misleading as it's not a resort or a beauty spa. It's a very small hotel run by a family. The receptionists are incredibly friendly and helpful.The hotel itself is a long way from Matera and you need to take the car in or get a taxi. This means if you want to eat out you can't have a drink of wine. The road is very busy and not suitable to walk along. The Hotel is essentially in the middle of a quarry so not too peaceful. We found our room very dusty with lots of cobwebs and someone else's hairs in our shower! There was pigeon poo all over the floor on our balcony and outside our room in the corridor. There was no attempt to clean this whilst we were there. If they upped their cleaning it would help, but the overall position of this hotel is far from ideal. The staff are lovely.

There are some advantages to the hotel's out of town location. There is a good car park on site and the drive into Matera is not difficult. If you are going to other towns it is conveniently located for the main access roads. However, the hotel is a couple of kilometres outside Matera but even if you enjoy a walk it is located on a busy main junction and the road to Matera is not really walkable. In the evening we didn't want to drive as we wanted to have wine with our dinner and taxis cost 30 euros for a round trip. As mentioned in many previous reviews the hotel is very friendly and the staff are extremely helpful. There is a nice small garden with some comfortable chairs and umbrellas but this is a small hotel, which suited us, although the Resort title could be somewhat misleading.

Upon arrival being greeted by a warm and helpful welcoming! A nice and modern room and there is a lovely outside gardenarea Parking is free and on the downside if you will, you need transportation to get to the city-center. The hotel is located a few km from the center

We chose an out of town location so we could easily park and handle our luggage. However the site was on a busy,noisy road so there was no possibility of opening a window.The evening we arrived we discovered our room air conditioning did not work and they told us we could not change rooms. They promised it would be repaired the next day and gave us a noisy fan which was not very effective.when we returned the following evening they said it would be fixed the next day. Pretty useless as we only stayed 2 nights! There was also supposed to be wi-fi in our room which did not work. Other problems: A cracked plastic toilet seat. Bathrooms light over the mirror not working. Dangerous bed surround which had very sharp protruding corners on which we knocked our ankles. When you select a hotel that has air con and WiFi in your room and they are apathetic about fixing it,it makes you complain! ,This could be a nice hotel but it is spoiled by poor management and needs a maintenance person.
