Just a complete relaxing experience. Easy to find. Dominico sorted our car park, delivered baggage, organised centre map, planned dinner, book the free bike rentals, showed me where to swim tomorrow and finally a quick hotel tour. What else in 30 minutes.

My partner and I stayed at Giovi Relais in August 2016. The staff were really helpful about booking us trips and advising us places to go. If you book in advance you can also make use of the loungers at the beach, which is advised as the area gets very busy during the summer. The hotel is centrally located and... More

Great location in the center of a charming town. Rooms are spacious and bathroom is great. Very nice breakfast buffet. Walls are not soundproof so you are up when your neighbors are up. Concierges were helpful with restaurant suggestions and reservations.

The hotel was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was great with local focaccia bread. The staff was very helpful. Fabrizio, Elvira, Sarah, and Salvador all wonderful. We decided to extend by 1 day but the hotel managed to do some shuffling and moved us to another room so that we could stay a day longer.

Originally we had planned to stay only one night on our way to the Gargano but we loved both the hotel and the place so much that we decided to stay put for a further two nights. The hotel is immaculate, and the rooms are... More
