The grounds of the Verdura Spa and Golf resort are open, right at the sea, and seemingly always very windy. The resort is perfect if you want to enjoy sports such as golf, tennis, gym, watersports etc. Given the wind and closeness to the sea, I would strongly recommend that you go in the hot months of the year in order to enjoy it.
When we went early September, the resort was full of families with children, and felt more like a Robinson Club which was disappointing given the positioning of the resort. The Verdura provides bicycles to get around which is fun, and allow you to get to all the restaurants quite easily from the room. Be warned that restaurants outside the resort are a min.15km drive.
The rooms are spacious, but quite worn and the design is hideous in my view. It is not as luxurious as expected and therefore overpriced.
We liked the pool area and the beach. But overall, found the resort disappointing and soulless.
