The hotel is isolated north of Bari on the Adriatic. There is no beach: just a rocky limestone shore. Off season everything is dead. The area is mixed resort and old derelict industry. Hotel transportation to airport is very limited. Taxi service is very expensive to anywhere including airport or Bari's cruise port. Hotel staff seem to call the most expensive taxis. Our taxis repeatedly charged us double the fare: there was always a pick up fee to this remote location. Hotel staff were courteous and spoke English well. The facility was marginally clean but showed a lot of signs of aging. If you have transportation this might be an OK base to explore the region north of Bari for a few days (if the price was right). There is nothing to do at the hotel or in the area. Definitely not the place for a family vacation. If you are just traveling through briefly this is not the place for you!
