We had a great stay here with our 18 month year old - the hotel is just beautiful and the staff were fantastic. The rooms we tidy and well equipped - we had one with a kitchenette which was a life saver as the restaurants around didn't open until 8 which was late for our little one. Breakfast had a huge range of choice. Only downsides were the beds were harder than I like! I would recommend a car hire - we managed to find a sandy beach at capitolo which was fab.
Having planned our nine day stay beforehand, the resort was ideally placed to visit a variety of fascinating locations: Alborobello, Castel del Monte, Matera and Lecce. It was disappointing that the resort had no sandy beach.
The hotel could be better signposted from the motorway. We have to say the standard of Italian driving was hair-raising at times, and we were lucky to survive when a lorry drove straight into our lane from the sliproad on the outskirts of Bari.
The Sicily by Car hire office at Bari Airport was a shambles, and it took a wait of 50 minutes to get the key. We reckon some people - several with young children - would have to wait up to three hours, such was the size of the ever-lengthening queue.
The travel itinerary worked out by Expedia featured three flights: Leeds/Bradford to Amsterdam, Amsterdam to Milan and Milan to Bari - but it all worked out very smoothly. One of our two cases arrived a day late.
While not situated in a sprawling city location, it is close enough to enjoy the town in a country side setting. Vineyards adorn the nearby country side! Impressed by the friendly staff, which you will find helpful and informative. They truly make you feel welcome and appreciated. The hotel offers excellent dining, cleanliness, and is very quiet and relaxing, and in a charming rustic setting. All of this as what I feel is a bargain price! The local population is also friendly and inviting! I would highly recommend to anyone! Enjoy your stay as I did, to experience the warm southern Italy! Fantastic!

Excellent if all you want is a quiet spa experience. There is not much else to do there and you definitely need a car as its a good 15 minutes from polignano a mare. Staff excellent....rooms need upgrading, maintenence. Free Breakfast great.
We chose this hotel because of other reviews. It's very clean and comfortable. Rooms similar in size to those in the U.S. The air conditioning works well, the bathroom is nice with the traditional small shower, the internet is fee-based, and parking is free and secure in a garage. We ate at the hotel restaurant twice as there were limited choices within walking distance. The prices were fair and the food is fine, but nothing special. Overall, we were satisfied with the choice. It's clearly one of the nice hotels in the area.
