We have just returned from a lovely 8 day stay at the Hotel Victoria. We are a family of 4 - two adults and two older children.
The hotel is fairly small like most of the hotels in this area but it is well maintained and efficiently run. We stayed in the family room which is basically 2 adjoining rooms. Although this did work out a bit pricey- you are charged the rate for two rooms - it was an excellent choice for us as there was plenty of space and privacy plus having two bathrooms was great. The rooms were spotless and freshly decorated.
We were on a bed and breakfast basis and found there was plenty to eat at breakfast. The staff in the dining room were very attentive and all spoke good english. It was lovely in the morning sitting on the pool terrace looking out to sea having your breakfast. The hotel always had a fantastic range of cakes and pastries available at breakfast !
The pool area was very clean and during our stay we never found it any problem getting a sun lounger. This is probably because each room comes with its own 2 loungers and umbrella on the beach which is directly in front of the pool so think most guests went to the beach. The pool attendant was very attentive and went round regularly making sure everything was ok.
The staff on reception were also very helpful and spoke good english.The free bike hire was great for getting around Lido do Jesolo which is actually a huge resort - about 6 miles long. The hotel has 12 bikes which include a couple of older childrens bikes which is great because the area is very bike friendly with cycle lanes everywhere.
There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby for eating and although this hotel is stituately at the quiet end of the resort we never found it a problem. In fact one night we got the bus up to the centre and it was exceptionaly busy there so preferred where we were.
My only small complaint about the hotel was the price of the soft drinks at the pool bar during the day. 3.50 Euros for a coca cola was in my opinion way too pricey! However there is a small supermarket just round the corner selling chilled cans for 0.68 Euros so we just walked round there to get our refreshments.
This is the first time we have travelled to this area and we were unsure of how we would get from Marco Polo airport out to Lido di Jesolo. I did price a private transfer but was quoted 85 Euros each way!. However I would advise that having read a previous review we decided to get the bus. I just want to let everyone know how easy it was! There is a ATVO ticket desk when you come out of arrivals and it costs 3.50 Euros per person for a ticket to Lido do jesolo.( plus another 1.90 for 3 cases) There is a big screen up with the next bus times. We literally just walked out the front of the airport and the bus stands are there. It is clearly marked which stand is for Lido di jesolo plus there is someone there to ask if you are stuck. The buses are roughly every half an hour and it takes about 35 mins to get to Lido di jesolo. It takes you into the main bus station which is in the centre of the resort. The hotel is about 3 miles away and a taxi there cost 19 Euros which was expensive. However the cheaper was to do it is to go and get a ticket at the bus station and get the no 3 bus to Piazzo Faro. The hotel is only a 5 min walk from there.
Overall an excellent hotel and if I was travelling to this area again I would definately stay here.
