Nice enough hotel but I booked it because there was a pool - paying more than I would normally have paid & the pool wasn’t open for the season yet. The web site should state the opening dates. I also couldn’t get on the wifi which was also something I specifically searched for. Otherwise it was a nice hotel with... More

The hotel seems old and tired. Breakfast OK. Very simple bathroom, only soap in a dispenser, not anything else. Wifi free but didn t work at any time. Very good location to the airport, about 5 minutes. Staff friendly.

very disappointed by the quality of the room and the bathroom, the quality price is almost ok, the location is good for the summer because on the seaside. Very convenient for the airport that you can reach in 5 mins driving, they offer a shuttle as well/

we were disappointed - the first day we went to the pool after searching for non-broken deck chairs - 3 out of 4 collapsed on us. The pool attendant tried to charge us 2 euro for bathing caps - the pool isn't worth it. The sea area is cement! The desk would not give us change to use their water/soda... More

I belive this hotel was paradise once... like 15 years ago. It was probably beautiful 4* resort with many activities, bars, restaurants... Nowadays it is a bit like some horror hotel. We've visited Giovinazzo in high season, but the hotel looked like few hours before closing (closing forever). The lobby bar was closed, corridors were very dark, elevator looked scary.... More

Don't get me wrong, this place is ok. We paid for what we had. The problem is that this can't be a 4 stars standard. The owners / managers were very nice and the only thing I can complain about is the restaurant which doesn't show you prices and is extremely expensive for the food they serve. Hotel in general...

We took this hotel for one overnight stay before going to Bari airport. For this purpose the hotel was quite a good. Easy access, congestion-free road to airport. Otherwise the hotel made impression that it was built as a cozy hotel long time ago and then forgotten by its owners. The inner decorations were worn down, the bathroom has a... More
