The pool is definitely the best part about this place. It's a dream. The room was humble but had everything you need. We went during the low-season so it wasn't too busy. The food was good but a little pricy. The staff were great. I would like to return during a bit warmer time maybe late June or early July.

The pool is nice, the breakfast is nice but that is pretty much it. Do not expect to have Internet connection in the room, when I was doing my check-in someone was complaining that the Internet didn't work in the room and the answer from the front desk was "your room is too far" so I asked if my room...

I want to point out that the staff were excellent, they tried as best they could to resolve the issues we had. The hotel rooms SHARE a balcony, so prepare to get up close and personal with your neighbours!! The music by the pool was verging on ridiculous, it was so loud all through the evening until 3 am.

I have to say that this was the best wedding wedding venue I have ever been to. Not only was the location great overlooking the sea, but the manager and the whole hotel staff were extremely professional from the minute we all arrived to the moment we left. I have to say I dislike attending weddings but this wedding changed... More

1) The pool is nice but that's all: it's always overcrowded and you need to book your seats early in the morning. Almost always loud and horrible music around the pool with the loudspeakers just in front of the babypool of our kids!! 2) The hotel staff is completely unfriendly especially in the restaurant where they refused to let us...

Leuca is a lovely little town right on the heel of the Salento peninsula. It has a nice number of restaurants, without being too large. The Messapia hotel complex is beautiful - the pool and view is amazing. Our apartment was very good, right near the pool, the restaurant was great (catering for coeliacs). The staff were very friendly and... More

Everything you need is in Santa Maria di Leuca and in the Messapia Resort. You have peace and quiet as the village is authentic Italian and there is no traffic or whatever noise sources. As for the Messapia resort, the pool is amazing, the food in the Pizzeria is delicious. The pizzas are heavenly and the fish is fresh and... More

This is a rather large complex with both apartments and hotel rooms. Our apartment was quite simple (as in most similar places) but clean and functional. The hotel pizzeria served very good pizzas. We liked that the pool has salt water but apart from that, being at the pool is not a very pleasant experience unless you like loud music... More

You need a hat to use the swimmingpool. Bought in the poolbar. Great sandwiches in the poolbar. No new towels in four nights. Sweet but quite good breakfast. The restaurant/pizzeria was ok, But no pizza for lunch.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Messapia Hotel and Resort, a four star hotel located in a panoramic position at only 800 metres from the sea, is harmoniously integrated in the natural scenery of the Mediterranean maquis. This seaside resort, which was in the past a Messapian site and later a little Roman town, overlooks the stunning area of Santa Maria of Leuca on the eastern coast of Salento peninsula called “finis terrae” or “the end of the world” because land seems to finish here, jutting into the waters of the Adriatic and Ionian seas. The hotel includes 110 units, comfortably divided into hotel rooms and different types of apartments in order to satisfy all necessities. The rooms are equipped with well-appreciated services as tv, minibar filled on request, air conditioning, telephone, a safe, en-suite bathroom with shower and hairdryer. Messapia Hotel’s architecture and furnishing aim at respecting the basic elements of Salento environment such as the “Pajare” the Mediterranean maquis, but also materials as the local stone called “carparo” and the rush, chosen to create an extremely simple and functional style and to show the dexterity of local craftsmen. In the hotel rooms, the decors on the bedhead refer to old Messapian symbols such as the sun, the sea and the wind. Distinctive and unusual is the building that houses the hall, the restaurant and the main facilities. Its structure perfectly reflects the motif of a fortified farm-house or “masseria fortificata” an old architectural structure complete with a tower which was used in the past as a defence system. The new management has continued improving already existing facilities but also introducing new ones, such as a beauty centre with pure relaxation treatments provided by skilled physiotherapists and body care ones made by qualified beauticians; a hairdresser; a green area among pajare and centuries- old olive trees to be used as a solarium and children play-area; a removed art gallery; a gift shop; a new panoramic lobby for aperitifs, well equipped with rhum and Cuban cigers; a pizzeria; a restaurant; a roof garden used for themed supper nights and special events or parties on request surrounded by a stunning view. ... more   less
