This hotel has a great infrastructure, location and personals. We were there with our 4-year old, and he loved it. The beach and the pool as well as the available facilities in the garden are very good. Taranto is just 10 min drive but the in-house restaurant is also very good. The beach was excellent.

On the plus side, the room was big with a lovely sea view, clean, good parking and very near to a the long sandy beach.

The best thing about the hotel was the pool! plenty of sunbeads and shade- the rooms were ok , clean but average.... definitely ask for a sea view otherwise you will overlook the carpark. The food was below average, and not what i would expect from a 4 star hotel......there was no way to control the air con unless you... More

As previous reviews, the rooms and hotel were clean and the housekeeping staff were very good and cleaned our room every day. The pool was of a good size and also clean, but this was pretty much the only entertainment. The food was poor, breakfast was awful - an English breakfast consisted of cold scrambled egg, cut up frankfurters and... More

Friendly staff, good breakfast. This hotel is by the seaside a few km. from Taranto. It is part of a seaside community (which was shut down when I was there) separated from Taranto by a container port, an oil refinery and a train station/bus depot. One thing to watch if you have a car. There are some trees in the... More
