“Genteel holidaying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Hotel Principe Palace, Jesolo, near Venice. A beautiful hotel, nice rooms and excellent cuisine (can't call it food, it's too good). Staff so nice, can't do enough for you. Rooms very nice, those at the front of the hotel have a small balcony, just enough room for two chairs and a table. These balconies overlook the town square of Jesolo, lots of people passing by and events held in the evening. Not noisy events you will be pleased to note. i.e. a parade of American cars. Every evening the Italians stroll through the square, sometimes with little ones. There are ground fountains and they have fun avoiding the sudden gush upwards of the water.
The beach is only a short stroll across the square and down a short side street. Each hotel has a section of beach with sunbeds and umbrellas. So civilised.
The beach is soft sand and the bathing is safe.
If you book with the hotel for your boat trip to Venice for the day (which is a most beautiful city), when you return there is a buffet evening - such a selection of wonderful food.
The hotel pool is on the roof, with a small pool too for children. Rooftop cafe/bar. It is slightly cooler up there, which is welcome on a hot day. We went in June.
I thoroughly recommend this hotel. And I would just like to extend a big thankyou to all the staff there. Very professional, but with the personal touch.

Room Tip: Try for one at the front for a balcony overlooking the square.

Staff very helpful, hotel is very clean and the food fabulous. Due to coeliac disease I was worried about what I would eat in Italy but was pleasantly suprised, the hotel catered very well for people on a gluten free diet, so would reccomend this hotel for people with coliac disease. Would definatley go here again.

The hotel itself is lovely, and exceptionally clean, the staff were all very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and catered to a wide range of ages and preferences, my only criticism would be location as it is positioned in the middle of a very busy and noisy strip of bars and restaurants, however the beach is merely a 5 minute walk out of the door which was perfect. We were able to visit Venice numerous times as the bus route and boat ride are very convenient and easy to navigate. Overall this was a great visit.

For a comfortable hotel and a relaxing stay this is a fantastic location.

Very friendly and most helpful staff.

Good central location,very clean and tidy.

Nice beach area but it is a short walk from the hotel.

Nice long shopping area just right for a stroll in the evening, miles & miles take comfortable shoes.

This hotel was amazing. Spent 1 week there in July and only wished it had been longer. The hotel is ideally situated right in the centre of jeslo with loads of gorgeous Italian bars and restaurants within a strolling distance of the hotel. The staff in the hotel are some of the friendliest we've ever met. The hotel is spotless with an amazing restaurant that is waiter service on an evening with a superb menu to pick from. The rooftop bar and pool area is spotless offering a wide range of meals, snacks and drinks. A must to try is an aperol spritzer which looks like iron brew but tastes
Very Italian. The hotel has a lovely seating area outside the main entrance where you can sit enjoy a drink and watch the world go by. I would definately recommend this hotel if you are in this area of italy

Room Tip: All rooms are good even though its in a popular area as the double glazing was totally sound Proof...

This hotel is very nice, ideally situated and relaxing, it is a good place for a holiday for ALL ages.The food and service was wonderful all the staff were very helpful. Our room was fine. The only downside was that there wasn't much time for breakfast on our last morning but that wasn't the hotel's fault, I feel Thomson holidays could pick up 15 minutes later!

We stayed at the Principe Palace for a week at the end of September. We hadn't realised that this was the last week of the season and that the hotel would close when we left. Also that quite so many other hotels would be closed already. It actually meant that the place was not heaving with people and there was no problem stopping off at one of the many cafes. Although it seemed a bit weird looking at the thousands of loungers and umbrellas on the beach just standing vacant. The hotel was more than welcoming and on our arrival (a coach load) we were pleased that our room was ready for us - many from the coach had to wait for theirs. We had emailed ahead and requested a high floor front facing room and that is what we got - room 402. As others have said the breakfast was very good, including egg, bacon, sausage etc., but the toast machine was oh so slow! Even after putting the bread through twice it still came out anaemic looking! Tea and coffee was served to the table as soon as you sat down, so no looking around for service and it was all done with a smile. The evening meal was on the whole very good. There was an extensive salad bar for pre starters which you helped yourself to, as were the desserts. The starter and main course were waiter service, which as people before have said you chose the day before. There is a pen and order form (plus menu) on your table and you chose from 4 starters and 4 main courses. There was only one day when I told the waiter there was nothing in the main courses that I liked, so he told me to put down something I would like (he suggested steak, which I duly put down). The next night I got a nice piece of steak! That is what I call service, you wont get that at many holiday hotels. All the drinks are put to your room and you pay on the day before leaving. It was so pleasant to sit on the hotel terrace in the evening watching the children in the fountains and generally people watching. The drinks were very reasonable - only 2 euros for a pot of tea!
The room wasn't huge, but it was very clean and included a free fridge and free safe. The bathroom was fine with some nice little toiletries replenished every day. One little problem with the shower - it sometimes went very hot and then cold which was a little disconcerting. The pool and surrounds were a little tired and could do with a face lift and the pool was freezing! It needs heating, as we didn't see anyone in there the whole time we were there and everybody was complaining about it.
We took two of the Thomsons trips. One was to Venice and the other Verona and Lake Garda. The Venice trip was 51 euros each, but it gave us the confidence to go back under our own steam. We also while on that trip had the opportunity to have a gondola ride for only 17.50 euros each and it also included a bottle of wine to share with the other 4 people (all from our trip).
Would we go back to this hotel? Yes I think we would if we wanted to do Venice again. The resort of Lido di Jesolo though is not pretty, just one long street of shops, cafes and hotels - ten miles long! And the same on the sea front, just miles of hotels and sunloungers. Very very easy to do Venice, Murano and Burano though from here and a nice comfortable hotel with some of the best staff we have come across.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor front facing
