Hotel Una Versillia is a hotel that delivers at almost every level, it is well located at the north end of Lido Di Camaorie on the way to Forti Di Marmi. Even though its set back just 30 metres or so from the beach road it's still easy to miss if you're not familiar with the area, our taxi driver didn't find it until the 3rd attempt which was very frustrating.
First impression on driving into the complex is one of modernity and immaculately kept grounds, bearing in mind that this was pre holiday season being the end of May we were not at all surprised to find the hotel relatively empty. Based on this assumption it would have been nice to have some hotel assistance with the unloading of our cases but this wasn't to be so we had to do it ourselves.
The reception area is airy and bright with a mass of glass and shades of beige, grey and white with wicker furniture scattered around giving a very spacious feel. Unfortunately the staff did not offer the warm Italian welcome we were hoping for instead being very professional and matter of fact. In fairness we had arrived early at around 11.30am and check-in was not before 2am that said we feel that they are geared primarily for the home market as there were very few other British vacationers on site.
We had requested superior rooms on a high level and they were just fine albeit without the provision of drawers, instead making do with open plan shelving which for a week wasn't too bad. The furnishings are fine, the linens of a good quality and the towels pristine white and soft. There are towelling robes and slippers and excellent soaps etc. The balcony is large and ours had a side sea view which was OK as we didn't spend that much time on it.
The bathrooms are small but well lit and well equipped.
Breakfast is the nowadays common place buffet style but with an accent on fresh produce be it hot or cold and you would find it hard not to find something tasty amongst the selection of Cheeses, Meats, Eggs, Breads, Cakes and Fruit etc.
We had lunch by the pool on several days and although relatively expensive (Euros 40+ for two) the quality couldn't be faulted and the portions were generous. On sunny days the bar staff would come around the pool offering tasty titbits.
As for the pool well its large and very inviting, we weren't sure whether it was heated but never the less we swam daily. The beds are new and easy to adjust but they don't come with mattresses, for those you have to use the indoor pool at the Spa which although pleasant was very small and somewhat superfluous. The Gym is well equipped and there are tennis courts and free bikes on site for use along the cycling routes on the promenade.
We didn't have a car to start with instead planning to rely on the buses and taxis but the taxis are so expensive and the buses not regular enough so we hired a small vehicle for the week which proved invaluable.
If there were any faults its only that the reception is lacking a knowledgeable concierge and we were often misinformed regarding local information, particularly the fact that many of the local restaurants close on a Tuesday.
There is a great supermarket just a 15 minute walk from the hotel and many people seem to stock up the small but useful refrigerators from here.
Other than that this is a great real 4 star hotel offering all you could want from an Italian vacation spot.
