No beach- in the sense of sand, beach service, toilet, etc.
The food is really average - if you travel a lot - I would even say - disappointing

All inclusive starts at 10.30 and finishes at 10.30pm - no food, ice cream only from 4pm-5pm ONLY for children!!!???
Some really lousy sandwiches only after 4pm
No bottled water in the room
Changing pool towels costs 3euro every time - otherwise you have to use a sweaty dirty one all week - even though you paid for all inclusive
Summing up- the hotel itself nice and clean , nice big clean pool, not overcrowded
Do not go for all inclusive - doesn’t pay off
You can eat sth Italian in a nearby cafe/restaurant and order some decent drinks

Dolcestate is a very good hotel with a very good staff, an animation team awesome with Eduardo and Gabriel.

Dolcestate Hotel is the worst hotel I stayed in the last 5 years.

The only positive side is the fact that we had a large and spacious apartment that was renovated not long ago. However, they forgot to renovate the bathroom floor. There was a bad odour in the bathroom that they tried to fix with a perfumed spray.

The hotel lies in the middle of nowhere. Shuttle busses are only offered on request. When you don’t have a car, you’re stuck at the hotel.

I do understand that a hotel owner does not like the principle of all-inclusive, that’s fine with me. In that case don’t offer it !
We had an all-inclusive bracelet and on top an all-inclusive card. You always had to show the all-inclusive card, even for 20 ml of water in a disposable cup. Water is a basic need, more, when temperatures are climbing to 40°C, it is necessary to keep your hotel guests healthy. You can’t get a bottle of water to get through the night unless you pay for it.
No pool towels includes in the all-inclusive.

We also received another card to put money on to buy things not included. You could load it from 5 euro. On departure the management will not refund the balance.

I did not like the meals. At breakfast only 2 sorts of bread, every day the same cheese and meat. Fruit salad out of a tin. At noon corn out of a tin. In the evening squid out of a tin. No variation at all. The kitchen could never not follow the needs of the restaurant especially with meat and fish. This is also a way to reduce costs.

We arrived at 11 pm and had to leave our room the day of departure at 10 am. There is no shower room available, but you can keep your room longer when you pay 50 euro.
I even had to discuss about having lunch and drinks the day of departure. This is not a holiday .

Discussion with the staff is very difficult as they speak poor English and French. The hotel manager only speak Italian !

How on earth did this hotel got a 4 star rating ?
