I've stayed at Hotel Tropical in beautiful Lido di Jesolo as a member of a tourist group for one night only. The hotel is perfectly located, modern, clean and full of light. Staff is very pleasant and hospitable. All this definitively deserves three stars.
However, the food is definitively a two star business - our dinner consisted of an overcooked lasagne that beside meat ragout contained pieces of ham and just traces of parmiggiano cheese, two thin slices of meat that no one in our group could guess what it was and accompanied by some French beans, and a decent tiramisu cake. Breakfast was extremely poor - three transparent pieces of sausage, ham and toast cheese (what happened with all the lovely cheeses that are produced in Italy?), butter and jam (at least you can fill your stomach with these). Coffee/cappuccino was excellent.
I don't know how much the tourist agency paid for our half-board but I believe that this false economy will not work for the hotel in the long run (they could've at least put jugs with water on the table for dinner, or could've used proper meat). If I travelled solo/with family I would've either complained about the above mentioned issues or, most probably, would've chosen another hotel at which to spend my holiday. And hotels are plentiful in Lido.
