overnight stop off in Bari

Posted 31-Aug-2013
Fairly easy access from airport in hire car, although central barrier means only accessible from one direction, and sign is easy to miss in the dark. Once through the locked gate it was lovely- very pleasant, helpful staff. Although the evening receptionist spoke no English, he did give us directions to a very reasonable locals restaurant 10 mins away. As we were very late to bed, they extended a light breakfast for us- don't know what the full breakfast was like, but ours was very nice.

Smart hotel if you can find it!

Posted 12-Apr-2013
Pros: Gardens, attractive villa.
Cons: Location in the suburbs and not being able to find the hotel.
Location: As before, a nightmare to find for first time travellers.
a pretty villa with impressive gardens including lemon trees and olives, and lovely-looking swimming pool, spa facilities available, parking in grounds. Large bedroom, very clean, some traffic noise but not much considering how close hotel is to major road. Breakfast adequate, staff very polite. BUT difficult to find if arriving from Bari airport for first time, despite printing out Google map before arriving, I could not find it, and had to stop at petrol station, where a charming local drove in front of me and delivered me to the door! Later that evening, drove into town, with instructions from receptionist, to try and have dinner. Parking is horrendous in centre, could not find anywhere to park in the port, parked illegally for few minutes and then spent an hour trying to get back to hotel ... should have taken 20 mins! Now I know where it is, could find it, but for first time to Bari travellers it can be difficult!

Overrated

Beautiful hotel but no personality. Wifi access not consistent. No actual restaurant and very out of the way. The only thing that saved my one night was the jacuzzi tub.

Beautiful but not for pedestrians

Posted 15-May-2012 on Hotels.com
The resort is lovely and the grounds are beautiful. Unfortunately, it's not a good choice if you have no car. Walking to the bus stop (if you can find it) to visit central Bari is very dangerous, I was almost obliterated by some idiot driver skidding out of control. My mistake, I should have realized how far away from la città vecchia the resort was located. However the staff were wonderful, so I would recommend Terranobile highly -- if you want to drive there.

Isolated from city; restaurant was not open

Posted 10-May-2012 on Hotels.com
We were disappointed with Terranobile Metaresort. The place has a lot of potential and the staff was friendly (though I don't know Italian and it was difficult for them to understand much English). However, the restaurant was not open during our 3-night stay, and there are no restaurants within safe walking distance--this means you need to take a taxi to the city (or nearby restaurants) which will cost between 12-20 euros. Breakfast was available in the morning, though. Terranobile has a nice pool area, but it was not clean--we sat by the pool but did not get in. The shower was uncomfortable because in our room (#11) the shower curtain rod kept sticking to us while we showered. The room was very dark and quiet, so that's a good thing.

Excellent holiday!

Posted 06-Nov-2011
Location: The main town in Bari was nice but the outer suburbs are very run down. Not a place for a lone female or even a group of women to walk alone especially at night.
A beautiful hotel set in its own compound with free parking and entry gate. Lovely food in the restaurant and good service. The rooms are clean, and well decorated. The hotel has lovely grounds and a swimming pool. The staff were very helpful although their English was not fluent and they didn't seem to know the local area very well - how to get to different restaurants or local bus services for example. It is set along a duel carriageway and if you want a night out and don't want to drive it can make life very difficult. The nearest restaurants and bars are about a fifteen minute walk away. You have to walk along the edge of the duel carriageway, down two alley ways and then cross a motorway!!!! (at least this was the only area that we found during our seven days there!!!!! However this did lead us to bars, restaurants and a couple of supermarkets. Very easy to get to and from the airport and get onto the motorway to head to other areas. We would stay there again and had a great time.

Terra Nobile Metaresort Bari, Italy

Posted 13-Feb-2011 on Hotels.com
Wow, what a beautiful hotel in an unexpected area. This property is set in an old villa surrounded by magnificent gardens, a true delight for the senses. Unfortunately I only stayed one night before flying out early the next morning. Room was very cozy and comfortable; very clean. Do not let the location throw you off, it is like an island of beauty... Excellent value for the price.

Absolutely gorgeous, private, impeccable service, lush garden, dream pool area and fabulous food!!!

Posted 14-Apr-2010
This is a fabulous hotel, very chic and the service is impeccable. The size of the room is huge compared to what you get elsewhere in Europe/Italy. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous boutique hotel to anyone who wants to enjoy the peace and quiet of a beautiful hotel set in a lish garden with a dream pool area! There are only about 15 rooms in the hotel, and that's a bonus in noisy Italy! The staff also spoke perfect English and French which was a bonus!
