Not as advertised by Expedia

This is not an hotel but an Italian holiday camp where Italians return to year after year. Few staff speak good English - German is the preferred second language as TUI (Thomsons) Germany send guests here. There is no restaurant but a self service buffet in a canteen - the food was okay but not great for vegetarians. The free wine with meals you are offered really is undrinkable - it comes pumped out a metal barrel! It is very isolated and if you don't have your own transport there is nowhere to go. You could order a very expensive taxi but there is no guarantee you'll get one to take you back. We arrived by train at Carovigno station - the most remote station I've ever seen and the holiday resort is over 7km away, We only made it after a kind local gave us a lift. Attempts to ring the hotel ahead of our arrival were met with no response.

Pros: The room was very clean. The private beach was beautiful and the swimming pool was really nice. No shortage of food including free pizza,

Cons: See above

Location: Nothing to do nearby - honestly! Location is awful without transport

Great hotel but could be better!

Overall very good but breakfast clear up is very prompt. Ended at 0930 but at 0910 the big clear up commmenced and instead of clearing dirty tables they cleared the food first. No not how it's done! Beach and pool excellent and great overall family holiday.

It's hotel not for turists but business meetings

Brand new hotel. Actually not whole territory is finished, a lot of workers are everywhere. Staff is very basic in English. Room (we had family room) is not so big as we expect. Food looks nice but was not tasty. The vine was horrible, it's shame on owners regarding the price for adequate vine in the shops (2-3 euro for the bottle). Beach is in 15 minutes walking distance, dirty and mostly rocky.
