After reading the reviews on this site I was really excited to be going to this hotel, but I was sadly disappointed. In my opinion this is not a four star hotel. I have stayed at many four star hotels around the world and this is not one.
The reception area and bar are indeed very nice, traditional and well kept so I have no complaints there. My main complaint was our room, tiny, scruffy, dark and dated, the room had seen better days in the 80s! I went to complain at the reception and asked to be moved but they where full so we had to stay put. Also, this seemed to be a hotel full of elderly and inferim people the average age to the clientele was 70+. Made us seem very young and we are in are 40s and 50s...
One of the things I was looking forward to was the food as I was expecting it to be very good, yet again I was disappointed. The salad buffet was ok but the starters and main course where mediocre at best, arriving cold or luke warm. Desert buffet was ok with plenty fruit but cakes/tarts weren't that good. I'm not a snob but, if your best experience of good food is your local Harvester than you'll think you're being very adventurous eating here!
Only went to pool area once as the water was freezing, I preferred the beach.
Location was good, and we travelled to Venice and the islands several times which was easy and straight forward. You buy a ticket from across the road at the tabacchi for either 19 euros or 23 euros which includes the vaperettos. You can also get there by coach from the bus station for 7.60 euros and a its a lot less packed. We as went to Treviso which is a nice town to visit.
