8/10 Very good

Nice hotel, awful music...
Most of the staff were nice. The hotel could do with a few improvements like most places but it's nice enough. The pool area is lovely and a nice place to spend the day. Wifi was patchy but good 4G signal so we used that instead. Overall pretty good. The only urgent area of improvement is the poolside music. They were playing Italian gangster rap music at full volume on patched together hi-fi set up. The sound quality is truly awful. You also literally can't hear yourself think when it's playing and there is absolutely no chance of having a conversation. The pool only had a couple of young families around it and nobody was enjoying it. All good apart from that.

Great stay!
I booked this hotel for my guests to stay during my wedding. They all loved it, especially the location and the swimming pool.

4/10 Fair

Shabby and overpriced!
We were firstly put in a very small room that barely saw the ocean, even though we paid a premium for a sea view room. There was no hot water throughout our 5 night stay. The airconditioning was externally controlled and no where near cool enough for sleeping. The staff were disinterested and dismissive. Do not stay here. Friendly staff make up for a few issues here and there, but unfriendliness just compounds problems!

8/10 Very good

Solitamente passiamo le vacanze estive in Puglia, e ci piace spendere qualche giorno visitando le bellezze di questa regione. Quest’anno abbiamo deciso di passare un paio di giorni nel “profondo sud” e abbiamo scelto questo hotel a Santa Cesarea Terme. La struttura è situata in alto rispetto al paese, quindi si gode di una bella vista, e grazie ad una breve scalinata si arriva sul lungo mare, dove poter già accedere alla struttura dei bagni termali. Altrimenti a pochi minuti con la macchina si raggiungono altri incantevoli posti dove il mare e la natura la fa da padrona. La stanza ampia e dotata di tutti i confort descritti, era pulita, ma avrebbe necessitato di qualche attenzione in più. Angoli di battiscopa staccati, alcune passate di vernice “molto rapide” e cornici del bagno da incollare, non sono passati inosservati, ma di sicuro non hanno reso il soggiorno meno piacevole. Di sicuro era in procinto di essere risistemata a fine stagione. Colazione abbondante e fornita sia di dolce che di salato. Personale sempre gentile, disponibile a dare suggerimenti e pronto a proporre i servizi addizionali offerti dalla struttura a prezzi competitivi. Bellissima piscina all’aperto dove rilassarsi e bere un piacevole e fresco caffè salentino. Purtroppo, non posso dire nulla della SPA non avendola visitata né provata. Suggerisco ai proprietari di introdurre una breve visita della SPA al momento del check-in, se l’ospite gradisce. Sicuramente da tenere presente per prossime vacanze.
