Expedia disappointed my wife and I

Posted 22-Sep-2016
Pros: The quiteness, seeing olive trees reputed to be upwards of 3000 years planted during the Roman Empire
Cons: The ability to have and evening meal without travelling. The place looked tired in need of some TLC, grass cut, flower beds tended, weeds removed
Location: Its was about 3km from the sea and leisure facilities. Surrounded by olive trees. One supermarket 3 km away. One very good restruant 3km.
Your advert was misleading. It showed rooms with a view through windows. Based on this and with previous experience of hotels whatever grade hotel room choosen it had a door and a window you could look through. Unfortunately the standard room we had booked was a box about 8 foot wide and about 12 foot long which contained a double bed a wardrobe and a toilet and shower cubicle smaller than a telephone box. There was a glass framed door which was the only source of day light so I assume would be classed as a window/door. Certainly ok for a one night stay but certainly not suitable for a 10 day stay which we had booked. Because of this misrepresentation by your advert we had to negotiate an upgrade to a small suite at an extra cost of 20 euros per night. This was a discounted rate of 50% of 40 euro per day extra. This experience certainly put a dampener on our hotel experience. It also was advertised with having a resturant this was closed. We were told was it was out of season. Again a disappointment. This entailed us travelling to 6 km every night to have meal. Again a disappiontment when one felt tired.
Comment from Hotel Management
30-Sep-2016 by Antonia Ayroldi - Masseria Tutosa, Hotel Management
Dear Mr. Shaw, we regret very much that you have not appreciated the stay in our masseria. Anyway, allow us to clarify that you have booked a standard room, that is composed of one door/window on one side and one window on the other side. The room despite being small has got air conditioning, one double bed, one wardrobe, one TV, mini bar, one little boudoir, one safe and one bathroom with shower cabin. We realized that the room was not to your liking, so we proceeded immediately to assign to you a junior suite at a special price. We hope that we will have you again as our guest. We will find a more appropriate arrangement for your needs. Best regards

Lovely, relaxing hotel

Posted 06-Aug-2016
Pros: Lovely breakfast, friendly staff, nice location!
Cons: Wifi wasn't great.
Location: We visited Ostuni, a hill town; Alberobello, the trulli village; and some gorgeous seaside towns.
This hotel was as beautiful as the pictures suggest; a really calm and tranquil place to stay. The pool is well provisioned with sun loungers and had a lifeguard on the weekend. The room had a fridge and some basic cooking implements, so we were able to make our own lunches after visiting a nearby supermarket. A car really is necessary here, as you are at least 10 minutes from Ostuni, but there are so many gorgeous towns to visit- we tried a new place every day. The room is spacious and the bathroom is lovely- the AC was strong and much appreciated in July/ August. The Wifi didn't work for us, but we were the furthest room from the reception which might be the cause. We also found the bed very firm, which wasn't a huge problem for us but towards the end of our stay it was getting a little uncomfortable. Plenty of pillows and cushions though! Altogether, a really gorgeous hotel, very romantic, very peaceful, but with plenty to do in the surrounding area.

Beautiful setting; but room a bit dated

Posted 22-Sep-2014 on Hotels
The masseria is stunning with a beautiful courtyard, pool and gardens. Would be great for a family! Bikes Availiable for hire too. I would have to say however our room was rather dated, and small but I'm not sure whether there was a choice to upgrade, of which I would have if given the choice Only breakfast was offered, and the lady was very hospitable and accommodating A car is a must

beautiful oasis of tranquility

Posted 15-Jun-2014
Cons: You do need a car as this is about 7km from Ostuni.
This is a fantastic place to stay. I totally recommend it having spent four wonderful nights there. I recommend to see if you can get a poolside view room as the grounds are lovely.

Quiet relaxing stay

Posted 30-Sep-2012 on Hotels
Very friendly staff. Lovely setting amid ancient olive trees. The swimming pool was very clean, in a lovely garden area with grass and olive trees. The hotel was a bit isolated, reached by a long driveway, but this meant it was secluded and peaceful. Unfortunately the hotel did not offer meals other than breakfast, so a car was essential for getting to a restaurant for an evening meal. Also, it would have been nice to have had tea/coffee making facilities in the room.

After Spending several days at Tutosa, we've continued exploring the region and spent another ten days in two masseria's. Also about 200 euro per night, but a way less quiet, friendly and none of them don't have such a gorgeous garden. Tutosa is recommended, but wifi works is only on reception.)

Very relaxing

We had a very pleasant stay. Staff were courteous and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. I am only sorry that it was not warm enough to use the pool. I would certainly return.

Un très beau cadre

Posted 16-Aug-2015
Pros: La piscine. Les petits déjeuners avec les figues fraîches, les confitures "maison" et les tomates dans l'huile d'olive ("maison" aussi, l'huile)
Cons: Les plages publiques sont à quelques kilomètres mais elles ne sont pas très belles ni très propres...
Location: Près d'Ostuni, très animée le soir. A 30 minutes des villages de trulli et des grottes de Castellana (exceptionnelles ! )
La masseria (ancienne ferme fortifiée) est magnifique et très bien entretenue. Le cadre (les oliviers à perte de vue...) est splendide. Le personnel est charmant. La piscine est belle et l'appartement pour 4/5 personnes spacieux et confortable. Nous y avons passé à 4 (2 adultes et 2 enfants) une semaine de vacances excellente.

Sicher nicht ein 2. Mal !

Posted 31-May-2015 on Hotels
Swimmingpool war noch nicht instand gestellt worden und konnte nicht benutzt werden (Aufenthalt mitte Mai!), keine Sonnenliegen etc. im Garten vorhanden. Einzig einige Liegestuehle vor dem Zimmer standen zur Verfuegung. Internet funktionierte mit den Iphones icht, und das sei ein bekanntes Problem im Hotel. Warum wird das Problem dann nicht angegangen? Da ich unser Missfallen kundtat musste ich am Schluss sogar im Voraus ! bezahlen - am Tag vor der Abreise. Auch wurde nach einem Problem mit dem Safe unser Zimmer betreten, ohne uns vorher zu informieren, geschweige denn in unserer Anwesenheit. Von 4*-Hotels bin ich eindeutig anderes gewoehnt! Das Fruehstuck musste entweder draussen eingenommen werden (war aber sehr windig), ansonsten in einer Art Besenkammer ohne Fenster und natuerlichem Licht. Einziger positiver Punkt war das Fruehstueck, zwar sehr Klein aber fein mit Hausgemachten Produkten. Die Bedienung beim Fruehstuck war 1A. Aber alles in Allem, Nein, von einer 4-Sterne-Masseria erwarte ich ganz eindeutig etwas anderes. Wuerde ganz sicher nicht mehr dort uebernachten.
