After a very negative experience in a nearby 4-star hotel in the Ostuni area of Puglia, we discovered this true gem near Ostuni, adjacent to the beach. RMR is a 4 year old villagio resort with two story villas and a central client area including a large and well prepared buffet room, entertainment center, pool and spa area, wellness center, and two beach areas. The beaches are sand, not rock; they require a brief 'trenino' ride (shuttle) and the beach has lifeguards and a nice bar. Staff assistance is outstanding with real attention to detail. We were also happy to see very active management involvement with several of their senior staff coming personally to resolve issues, including delivery of meals and check-out times. The barista and other support staff could not have been nicer. Best overall is pricing. For a new and well kept resort, with great landscaping, the price includes 3 meals and all services. This is a 5-star resort at 4 star prices.

Room Tip: All rooms with full options. No preferences.

The Resort is only 10-15 minutes from Brindisi and Ostuni. Very near to Fasano Zoo and Alberobello.
The place itself is gorgeous! The accomodation is organized in hotel rooms (with air conditioning) but each room has a litthe poarch and chairs and tables so it looks like you have a little house for the holiday. There is a huge swimming pool for adults and 2 swimming pools for children (one for toddlers and one for bigger children); there is also a play area and kids club for different ages. For the grown-ups there is yoga, pilates and acqua-gym twice a day!
The breakfast is ok (lots of cake, yougurt anf fruit) but the coffee is not good; but you can buy your expresso in the coffe shop for nothing. The lunch and dinner are glorious: there is a big buffet of different pasta, meats, fish, salads and . Dessert only for dinner. Plenty of wine (red and white) and everything is part of the full board. After 8-9 pm there is entertainment for all ages: baby disco, pantos, stand-up commedy (of course if you do not speak Italian you can still enjoy the party!)
The only negative side is the beach: it is quite far and you cannot reach it on foot (particularly with the heat!). there is a little bus that brings you to the beach (there is one every 15 mins) but before luch time could be very busy and you have to wait in the heat. The beach is not great anyway with very little space for sunbathing.
