“What a view!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

Drove into Ciro Marina and had not had a chance to check Trip Advisor before hand but lucked into stopping at Il Gabbiano. Because it is December there are very few tourists and I believe that we were the only guests staying at this lovely hotel. It appeared to be fairly large with several dining rooms, swimming pool etc.
We had a nice dinner in the upper restaurant as the larger one was closed. Breakfast was a typical Italian buffet (the way things were set up I thought that in the high season they offered a larger buffet). Our room was quite large with a pretty balcony facing the sea. The bathroom was good size with the usual amenities. While the hotel and room looked very clean I was amazed that there was some visible mold in the shower. For a squirt or two of bleach the mold would have been taken care of - so easy a solution!

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

Reviewed 18 September 2013

My wife and I stayed 3 nights for a friend's wedding in Carfizzi a few miles down the road. The friend's parents booked the hotel and it was the best in the area.

When we arrived no one at the hotel spoke English, French or German, air-conditioned rooms are an extra, expensive option that doesn't work well or all night and we had to leave a deposit for the TV remote control. The room was small, basic, dusty and if you walked barefoot on the tiled floor you had other people's hair stuck on your feet. Our room was next to the pool where teenagers would party all night with boom boxes and the pool and beach areas aren't cleaned up the next morning. You are assigned a sunbathing area according to your room on a dark sand beach where there is slippery, slimy stones when you go into the water. We ate with the wedding party elsewhere and never at the hotel.

Room Tip: Learn Italian before arriving and bring shoes that you can wear in the water and your room.
