Excellent value for money, 1 st class service
Planned a Venice city break along with a beach holiday over 6 days.
Found the hotel relatively easily (directions could be a bit better) two minutes walk from the bus stop. Hotel located in a very quiet area with only the church bells disturbing the peace 07.30 am and 19.30 pm each day. Bus service excellent running the length of the Lido every 10 minutes or so. Hotel staff at all levels were friendly and helpful, rooms and en suite bathroom spotless. Breakfast was as one would expect with a choice of cereals,yogurts,cheese and ham with croissants and rolls, choice of fruit juices finished off with a choice of coffees, more than ample to get the day started.
Service bus took 10 - 15 mins to get to S M Elizabeth (transfer port) and the water bus took 20 mins to get to St Marks Square. Journey from the airport to SME took 1 hour by water bus, it was more scenic and considerably cheaper than the speeding water taxis.Restaurants were considerable cheaper in SME compared to Venice but we ate well and prices compare favourably with the UK for food and beverages.
All in all a good enjoyable experience, but you do need the weather for a beach break as there is not a lot to do once you have explored Venice.
