Having had an excellent experience on our previous holiday in Tierrena, we decided to venture further north and try out Venice. We chose this hotel as it was out of the city and looked to be in a very nice location. The hotel itself is well maintained and well equipped. The rooms are also quite nice and sufficient, as you're only really there to sleep and wash for the most part, I mean really you're on holiday, you don't want to spend it completely in the room. Upsides of this hotel is the location in Jesolo Lido, you basically right in the centre, loads of shops (albeit most of them are touristy shops), but if you travel far enough down the road to you left coming out of the hotel, you will eventually find some nice shops. We never really found the either end of the road! It went on forever. There is a train that goes at night, we kept meaning to do that but didn't get around to it for some reason. The bar staff are great and very friendly. Although we did find it strange that you couldn't charge any drinks to your room ? Something about they're run as two seperate businesses. Don't know, just found that really odd. In food comparisons from Pisato this place in my own opinion, there is NO comparison.. Pisa wins hands down. Now that may be down to the area and the types of food they served, but I found the restaurant staff to be really not that friendly, they were there to do a job and that was about it, whereas in Pisa the restaurant staff couldn't do enough for you. This hotel, you were given a menu for the coming evening and had to chose your mean the night before. Personally I don't know what I may want to eat a day in advance. If you like squid, and octopus, lots of different fish, etc.. you'll love this place, but I prefer what most think of Italian food as your different types of pasta dishes and such. Breakfast is buffet style and was okay.. what can you really say about breakfast really. Also is you see a guy roaming the hotel in the evening is a blazer jacket, jeans and trainers, it'll be the owner.. I must say he was very hands on with his staff, but I think with him being around all the time, kept the staff moving. He was though very kind to take a couple of photographs of us and our friends so we could have one with everyone. The pool is located up on the roof and if you want a good lounger, get there early else you'll never get near the pool as it's limited space nearby. Summing it all up it's a nice hotel, nothing really wrong with it, but we just prefer further south. Our next journey is to the Amalfi Coast so watchout for that review.
