I have meant to submit a review for some time and so I am quite late, but never the less, better late than never. jr_hummel, a previous reviewer, called it a fortified farm turned luxury hotel and that it is. I was so impressed with the facilities, the rooms, restaurant and of course the first class personal service we received. I absolutely loved the all the amenities such as the spa services and pool. I found the food at the restaurant to be absolutely delicious. One night I ordered the salt-crusted fish (check the photo I added). What a treat! The fish is presented with the salt crust on. Then the server cracks the crust, removes the salt, filets the fish and serves it. It was so incredibly moist, scrumptious, and not salty at all. I have to also mention the lounge/bar located in the main building. It is the most charming bar that my husband and I enjoyed, especially for a drink before dinner or we would end the evening there before retiring to our rooms. We have two children and they loved it too. The pool and tennis court were a hit with them. We also went to Le Tamerici, Il Melograno private Beach Club which the children loved. The sea was so amazing. I could just float in the calm waters all day. And as the other review mentioned, La Peschiera restaurant, located at the beach was also a great place to eat, plus the view. We would watch the local kids fish while the sun was setting. We did a lot of site seeing and also stuff for the kids. There is an animal and amusement park in the area, and lots of unique towns to visit, such Ostuni , the white city. We did not have time to see everything, but then this gives us another reason to return and we will definitely be staying at the Il Melograno. Most of all I enjoyed the relaxing and comfortable ambiance the hotel creates. Even though it was fully booked, I hardly saw anyone, except at mealtime. Worth the journey! By the way we drove from the Amalfi coast (west coast) and it was a pleasant drive.
