“Still not quite clear on this place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Our experience differed in some details but the other recent English-language reviews a lot of the story. We stayed here for one night after arriving at Pescara airport very late. We were making our way south for vacation but did not want to drive much the first night. Booked this place on Expedia after seeing it was only about 45 minutes from the airport and its being the only 4 star property in the area. Upon arrival it just seemed strange. It’s motel-looking, but resort town motel, not highway motel. Tiny gated motor court, fake flowers and champagne at the entrance. Overall weird and extremely dated--circa 1960s. That said the staff was pleasant & welcoming and the restaurant was still open (though we were advised to hurry).
Our decently-for-southern Europe-sized room had a window that looked into what seemed to be a tiny former atrium with old baby cribs and cots in it. It was actually quite creepy and looked like a secret , forgotten orphanage. The beds were flat and uncomfortable, but overall everything seemed reasonably clean considering the age and wear-level of the property.
Dinner was a pleasant surprise. Having spotted the nicely stocked bar in the lobby, we started with more-than serviceable cocktails and then treated ourselves to an honest and well-prepared local meal in the house restaurant. The service and the small wine list had similar sensibilities and overall it was an enjoyable welcome. Breakfast was also decent and as much freshly squeezed OJ as you would like. Many locals frequented this restaurant by the way.

We only stayed here one night which we were both very thankful for. Whilst it has a lovely pool area we were unable to use it as they had a large group of local teenagers holding a party there with very load rave music on which lasted until 7pm. Guests were not prohibited from using the pool but it we would have felt very uncomfortable doing so and was not the relaxing day by the pool we had looked forward to.

The set lunch menu was limited, with several dishes not available (such as gnocchi) and only one flavour of ice cream left. They also only had one server staff who was rushing around catering to both the guests and the party outside.

Come the evening, they held a different event which took all available outside eating tables so we were left sat indoors eating in a small dark room with no natural light.

I can appreciate that this would be a lovely venue to hold a special occasion. That said, as a tourist you are not sen as a priority. We paid a substantial amount of money to spend the day in our room looking out into a brick wall!

This hotel looks like a motel from the street. It is conveniently accessed from the Auto- strada, but it really caters to the local event crowd (I.e. weddings, christenings etc.). It has a beautiful pool and deck area, which ate quite lovely. We happened to be there during the week when there were no events on. The service and food was quite good but I'm not sure the experience would have been the same had we been there on a weekend.
