We chose the hotel for it's location within easy striking distance of Brindisi Airport and yet with a beachfront location. The rooms had interesting modernist styling and the pool was lovely but the hotel itself is quite a long way back from the sea. When we were there we were in a small minority of independent travellers and the hotel was filled with several different package tours. Because there was a gala dinner for the package holidaymakers it was quite difficult to get dinner -- the hotel staff told us that the restaurant was closed and to eat in the hotel we needed to join the gala dinner but that turned out not to be true. 30 minutes later, we were allowed into the restaurant but the food was not great. Verdict: convenient location and nice pool but find somewhere else to eat.

We stayed for 2 nights at Borgo Ritella in a room for 3. The rooms are spacious with modern kitchens and bathrooms, comfy beds, and rustic touches to the decor. Very pretty. What is not shown on the pictures is the fabulous view over Fasano - lovely by day, and by night too. Although the hotel is in a quiet spot, it is only 5 mins drive from Fasano, and the guy at check in (who spoke about as much English as we did Italian! But we got by...) gave us some great recommendations for restaurants. Breakfast was good, staff friendly, decent speed wifi, clean rooms - and the on site pool was immaculately cared for - if a little bracing when you first get in! Overall, I would highly recommend and would not hesitate to return if in the area, perhaps to a 4 bed apartment as they come with a lounge area.
