We stayed there for 5 nights me and my wife during our Apulia tour. We felt at home since the beginning. Really pleasant young guys to welcome us at the reception, room very big and comfortable with a private terrace. We really enjoyed the big breakfast buffet included in the price and the dinners in their lovely terrace where you... More

This was part of a holiday on an organised cycling tour. The starter was fried cheese! No choices, no salad, no vegetables, served on a plank, what with this being a 4* hotel. The main course added to the artery clogging fest with fried meat, no salad, no vegetables, no sauce, just fried meat. Pasta was also on the menu... More

We stayed one night during a tour through Apulia. The man that checked us in was rude (acted very busy, no time to answer questions). Fortunately, the next morning he was gone and a very pleasant gentleman was at the reception. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. It could use better lighting. There were lamps... More

Contrary to some of the reviews, we really loved the place. It is not a palace, but is still worth its 4 stars, and this for many reasons: Our room was spacious, well equipped, very clean, very quiet & with a small balcony overlooking the port. Staff, without exception, extremely friendly and highly professional. 2 examples here, I needed an... More

Sometimes you look at reviews and wonder whether people have been staying at the same hotel. Our visit to the Approdo was just fine. We arrived tired after the last leg of a hiking holiday to find our luggage in the hall, and the owner/manager helped us take it up to our room. No sea view (but then we hadn't... More

We were looking forward to our stay in the quite expensive 4 star hotel. It started well with a very nice entrance with at the left a nice swimming pool. But then the terror started. The person at the reception was forgotten that our luggage was already delivered (we are on a bicycle trekking with transport of luggage). We waited... More

This hotel was arranged for an overnight stay on a cycling trip. Really liked it. The room was spacious and had a lovely balcony with a sea view. Although it was a bit cold to swim, it was very pleasant to relax at the pool. The hotel has interesting decor and a great ambience. Dinner outside on the large terrace... More

Family run hotel on th eastern end of the town. Easy walk into town. Spacious rooms with a great outdoor pool and a large patio overlooking the harbor. The restaurant in the hotel was one of the best in town. Would definitely stay there again

We visited this hotel as part of a cycling holiday having previously stayed at 3 wonderfully helpful and friendly establishments. Where the people could not do enough to help you. The check in seemed a bit chaotic and almost like the people had never had to check in a number of guests at the same time before. It didn't get... More

The room was big, but quite dark. We had a room with a sea view, but no balcony. The shower had no curtain, and after the shower the floor was all wet. The man in the reception could have been more friendly and welcoming. The outdoor area with the garden and swimming pool was very nice. Good breakfast. A 10... More
