Our flight was late getting into Bologna so we called the hotel, they provided train times and recommended the best train for us to get (having missed our first train). Stef from the hotel picked us up at Riccione train station and we were greeted at the hotel by a Saturday night cocktail.
The hotel itself was very comfortable, the spa area is great, very relaxing! We hired bikes from the hotel and the racing bikes are great, but the hybrids (which are hired in from elsewhere) are very heavy - best to take your own bike if you prefer a hybrid bike. I am not confident cycling but the panorama group was great, very patient and waited at the top and bottom of hills for me (thanks stef). My husband rode in all the groups and found every guide to be knowledgable and a great cyclists.
The food is great quality and there is lots of it! The sandwiches and bananas for cyclists are a nice touch. The hotel varied our meals and had special events we had a beach party, a bbq at a country house and a specialist pasta lunch as well.
The best thing about the hotel were the staff, so friendly and accommodating, we can't wait to go back,
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A white and immensly glamourous building. Just a hotel you say? But no, it's something more, as those who casually pass by, and randomly stop to look, understand. People look at the objects, shapes, and are drawn into the warmth of the place. Without knowing it they experience an atmosphere that comes straight to the heart.The Belvedere is a world apart, the world for you and your family, to make your summer traditional and special. In our hotel there are 48 rooms, 5 junior suites, a unique wellness centre, a swimming pool which is more like a blue lagoon, and a terrace solarium.Yet this is just the mere surface as there's so much more! So much that it is difficult for us to list everything without forgetting something; from room service to catering, from the baby club to the theme nights, from the atmosphere to the attention to detail. We strive to offer exclusive and unique services which harmoniously combine with one another and make your holiday one to remember. ... more less
