I stayed at this hotel 2 nights only in May 2007. I did not select this hotel myself as I was traveling with a group and reservations were made for us. Not sure about the location and why they picked up this hotel as we were there to visit Venice and this hotel is not really close to Venice and quite frankly there is not much else to see there at all.

This hotel is located not too far from the beach; you just have to walk 5 minutes or so to get there. If the purpose of your trip is to relax and enjoy the beach it might be okay but the beach is ok but not fabulous I have seen better locations.

As for me given we were there only at night I guess it was OK but I would not have spent a week there. The personnel were courteous but not too helpful. We did have dinner there only one night and the food was ok but it was not fine cuisine and we were not served any specialities.

As for the room they were clean and rather large rooms but although you were requesting a room with see view you did not end up really having the view you were expecting because of the hotel orientation and his location.

Not sure if it is always the case but it was really quiet and the hotel was not fully booked. It gave me the impression that this hotel was accommodating more groups than individuals and when we were there we were probably only 2 groups as a result it creates a bizarre atmosphere.

Overall this hotel is OK but certainly not a 4 *

I read the 10/6 review just after we had booked the Brioni di Mare and was quite concerned, but I needn't have worried, in my opinion this hotel is justly rated as a 4 star.

I agree about the hotel's position, it is an ideal spot, quiet but close enough to both the beach and the main street. We did both the public bus and ferry journey and tour company tour of Venice, and although the tour company's is much dearer, you get the coach more or less door to door and are accompanied by a local guide who was absolutely full of information - our only quibble was each fact was given in both English and German, if the tours had been in English only we would have learned twice as much. The other advantage was being able to go on a gondola for 16 euros each, admittedly we had to share with another couple, but it was much cheaper than booking privately. The rep told us about the cheaper versions and she must have been the only rep we have had on a package holiday who wasn't pushing the trips - a refreshing change.

We were warned there were stairs up to the hotel, but I wouldn't recommend this holiday for anyone with mobility problems, it involves an awful lot of walking both in the resort and Venice, where there are numerous steps to climb.

The hotel pool was hardly used, the most people we saw around it was about half a dozen, probably because the beach is so near. There is no scrambling for sun loungers, there are more than enough for every guest on the private stretch of beach. We found it funny that the life guards go for lunch (as do all the Italians - the beach clears) for about two hours. The hot tub was working when we was there, but the same system where you have to collect the token from reception applies. As the sun terrace is next to the lift we didn't find that a problem. There is a small gym with equipment and a solarium in case the weather is bad - we didn't need it, the weather was glorious - we had about four thunderstorms, but most conveniently at night.

Our room was on the top floor and very comfortable and clean. My only quibble was the colour TV had multiple channels, but the only English Language one was CNN although the hotel literature states BBC is available.

I agree about the breakfast buffet, although the bowls were bigger when we went. The rep did tell us we could order what we wanted for breakfast and the kitchen would oblige, but I don't think anyone bothered. The lack of fruit was disappointing. We also ordered a packed lunch one day which was awful, two stale rolls with no butter filled with ham or cheese, a banana and apple and a bottle of water - most of it went in the bin.

It didn't bother us choosing our dinner 24 hours in advance as there were five different starter and main dishes. Some of the translations were very literal, one night we were offered Smooth Hound which turned out to be dog fish!! We didn't have the problem of being hurried through dinner at all. Most nights we were usually the last down for dinner and weren't rushed at all. I totally disagree with the first review we found the food at dinner excellent.

We found all the staff very friendly and polite, one of the receptionists was an absolute mine of local information and could reel off bus timetables at will. The Barman was a complete sweetie - we didn't use the bar during the day so I cannot comment on the daytime service.

There was no entertainment in the hotel at all, this suited us as we have had holidays where we have been kept awake by the in house entertainment. In fact one evening about six of us were sitting outside the bar on the verandah and the barman asked us to move inside for the sake of the other residents.The main street is two minutes away where there are numerous bars and clubs, the main squares also have some kind of free entertainment, whether organised or impromptu, most evenings.

The first week we were there the hotel was filled with mainly Italians, the second Russians, there are some Germans and other English, but I would say just 5% of the guests came from the UK. We found the staff very friendly and polite and the guests on the whole friendly. The hotel is of a high standard, they are towel mad though, the towels in the room are changed every morning and evening with plus a knock on the door to see if you want even more fresh towels!! The bed linen was changed every day and the beds turned down in the evening.

All in all we enjoyed Jesolo, but we would particularly recommend the Brion di Mare

Please note - Thomas Cook rate this hotel as a 4 Star with their Marque of Excellence and this is the basis it was booked on. The review that follows is based on this rating, had the hotel been rated as a 2 star+/3 star - the review would probably have been written in a much more positive manner.

The hotel itself is situated is a great position, off the main street so no noise unlike the ones on the main street and less than a minute walk to the beach. Please note to get to Venice from Ledo involves a 45-minute coach journey followed by a 20-minute ferry - we were told 20 mins when booking it. Also it is easy and cheaper to do this yourself rather than through the rep approx 14 euros each - travel company charge 39 euros. The coach station is easy to find and you can buy 1 ticket, which covers the whole journey, and they are frequent. Please note you might not be guaranteed a seat this way unless you behave like an Italian and get to the front of the queue the Italian way!

On arriving at the hotel there is a sweeping marble staircase, unfortunately this didn't help the family of 4 ladies grandma/daughter and grandchildren who were left to try and carry their cases up the stairs - I did it for them but there should have been hotel staff on hand as there is in other 4 stars.

The hotel has it's own pretty pool with sunloungers, a roof top sunbathing area with hot tub, however it didn't work and when one of the guests called down to reception to advise, they were asked to come down (six floors) to collect a new token rather than it be brought to them. The beach has a separate area for hotel guests to use although non-guests were using it also. Sunloungers are free. A beach side cafe is located just by it and conveniences. Good job really as if you choose to sunbathe by the pool you will have to use this cafe as the hotel bar doesn't open until 1900 so no poolside refreshments/snacks during the day.

The hotel rooms were clean and had colour TV, safety deposit for a daily fee, and a mini bar. It was an interestingly decorated room (bright turquoise) but on the whole it was ok, the bathroom was a little small, the cleaning staff were very good.

The restaurant facilities were not what we expected from a 4 star. Breakfast was a self service buffet but the food had obviously been put out early in the morning as the bread was usually stale, a choice of ham, cheese, spreads, cereals were available however you needed to fill your bowl several times owing to it's size - it also doubled up as the metal ice cream bowl at dinner. One of guests called the teaspoon on the table the 'universal tea spoon' as you had to use it for your tea, cereal and yoghurt - obviously you could ask for another one but that was the point - you shouldn't have to ask. There was also no fruit available.

Evening meals - you had an hour for dinner 1930 - 2030. You had to advise them what you wished to eat a day in advance and if you dawdled or took a breather, you were hurried along. One night we weren't quite quick enough going for our first course - salad and were therefore repeatedly prompted, and although once we had finished and the waiters had brought course 2 within 90 seconds of putting my fork down, honest I timed it because it was so laughable, the main course was on the table and was burnt as a result. Some nights the food was great, but the choice was limited and we ended up eating out for 3 nights.

There were only a few staff in the hotel, the cleaning staff excellent, reception weren't always as friendly as they could have been, restaurant - as long as you were in and out in the hour they were very polite. Barman - good just not open enough.

Evening entertainment - listening to the other Brits complaining about the hotel, however after the rep visited after receiving a number of complaints, the next night an impromptu disco was put on. We would have participated however we had neglected to pack our lederhosen and therefore didn't feel suitably dressed.

The hotel premises were of a really high standard however this isn't sufficient to warrant a 4 star rating. Food and service play a large part in that. That being said, it is much cheaper than other 4 star hotels therefore you could say you get what you pay for - just don't expect a 4 star hotel.
