    The beds. They are trying to make double bed from 2 separate ones so in the morning you wake up with 50 cm crack in the middle. Restaurant is old school and breakfast very average- we were not hungry but you only get packaged food- jams, cookies etc. We found amazing food optiond in Vieste nearby.

    The beach nearby is perfect, pool is amazing. Environment of the hotel seems nice. We got advanced for superior room for free.

    This is a resort type hotel, the beach is just across the road. Private parking, walk through to chalet rooms. Pleasant ground floor room with own terrace and seating, views onto garden area. The restaurant was quiet for evening meal, choice restricted, I suspect still out of season.

    Breakfast selection OK especially if you have a sweet tooth. There was a large sweet selection not too many savoury or cereal options.

    Great location opposite the beach. Quite a walk into town but all on the flat. The pool area was lovely a real bonus.

    Great location just a few kms out of Vieste. Great pool and lovely guest lounge with bar. Staff very pleasant. Provided information about the old town which encouraged us to stay another night. Unfortunately for us the accommodation was closing for the summer, otherwise we would have stayed extra nights as we loved the hotel and all of the amenities on offer.

    THE WONDERFUL STAY IN VIESTE
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Standard Double or Twin Room with Patio
    • Stayed 5 nights

    The matress protector in the beds which is made of plastic and it is impossible to sleep as it is too warm even if the AC is on! we removed it, but the cleaners put it on again! There are some rooms located too much close to the near Camping where the music is too loud and you can't sleep. Breakfast: Amazing cakes, but poor savery foods. I would recomend it anyway, hopefully these small defects will be only the old book and the management will improve in the future !!! :-)

    The hotel is located in a quiet part of Vieste, comparing with all the other facilities in the area and in the middle of a beautiful garden. The town centre is 2,5 km . Free private parking. private pool. The private beach of the hotel is amazing which has got all services even for special needs for a quality stay, and very close. We recomend the BB so you can then enjoy the meal from many different restaurants. We recomend Sciali Restaurant, which is near the hotel and if you choose a table at the beach side, you'll have an Amazing and romantic view. Then trattoria Il Paniere, in the town centre, book a table on the terrasse you can feel like Romeo&Juliet with the wonderful food and wine. There is a Shuttle bus, free, that will take you to the centre &back, but please remember it is not reliable. Many times is not there when you need and this negative experience was common also to other guests. Better to take it going to the centre (if you can get one) and come back with a pleasant walk ( that it is not imossible) that will take abt 30 minutes as from the Hotel till the old town is 2,5km.

    The pictures did not show an accurate description, the room was very small and uncomfortable. The wifi only worked outside and even then it was very weak. The staff at the reception were friendly but the restaurant staff were unwelcoming and rude. I would not stay here again.

    Not sure how this place was ever rated 4 stars. People were friendly but rooms were noisy - even in the off season - and tired looking. Cigarette burn on the bed spread was not a good sign.

    The brakfast for me was a disaster. Every day totally same choice. No vegetable. For a person who dont like a sweet breakfast the only possibility every day was same kind of salami, chees and ham. If you are in the italy with so many amazing cheese and salami, hams produsct i didnt understanded at all. The wi- fi conection was very slow and not good working. Anytime you left your romm all eletricity switch off so no change to recharged the electronic devices and room was always very hot when you arrived back. The rooms would need a few repairs at least some new colour on the doors, or repair the shower... At the last second ( leaving very early in the morning) we were asked some city fee - nobody told us before, no possibility to pay by card and no ticked got like a confirmation of payment... ants in the room - had to asked three times to get the ants out of our room - wasnt too much confortable having ats running over mee whole night

    Very nice was the privat beach and its equipment. Also the climatisation was very calm and well working. The room service was quite precise and everything was very well cleaned.
