A family party of three, we chose the Diana Majestic because one of us needs gluten-free food. We didn’t use a travel agent, we booked directly with the hotel and we were impressed with the helpfulness of their response. The breakfasts and five-course dinners were wonderful. Coeliac and non-coeliac, we all enjoyed the imaginative, varied and high quality food. Everything in the starter salad buffet was really fresh and tasty – I think much of it came from the hotel’s own garden – and the choice was amazing. Service in the restaurant was first class and the surroundings were elegant. Our room was very comfortable and clean and we had a spacious, pleasant balcony with side sea view.
The hotel is recommended by the Italian Coeliac Society and I have to say that I felt very safe in their care. Almost everything on the dinner menu was either naturally gluten-free or could be adapted for me. The bread rolls were delicious. The only slight disappointment was in the gluten-free desserts – the fresh fruit salad, crème caramel and sorbet, although good, were not very exciting choices. (I have had gluten-free tiramisu, strawberry gateau, pastries, chocolate mousse and ice cream dishes in other Italian hotels and restaurants, so I had very high expectations – and dessert is my favourite part of the meal!) The hotel’s normal ice cream was probably gluten-free, but the waiters were really careful and would not let me have it because they were not certain about it. However, this is a very small criticism – I would highly recommend this hotel to any person on a gluten-free diet.
We had a thoroughly wonderful time for five nights at the Diana Majestic. We only wish we could have afforded to stay for a fortnight!
