When we arrived at the Oleandri we weren't sure what to expect, but the Reception staff were very welcoming, even if we weren't offered our welcome cocktail. The apartment we stayed in was a good standard, there was plenty of space for us and our 2 children and it was clean. The pool area was really lovely and we spent a lot of time here with the children. The beach was also wonderful and we were pleased we had reserved a front line spot as it meant we could relax while the children played on the beach. However, we were very disappointed by the kids club. I tried to take the children there once, only to be met with a young woman who hardly spoke any English and so I didn't feel happy leaving the children with her. My daughter was willing to give it a go as they were making necklaces, but after a few minutes she came to find me as she said it was boring just sitting watching the lady in charge cutting out. She had made no effort to include my daughter. It seemed that not many people in the kids club spoke English and so overally I didn't want to leave my children there. The restaurant was also unwelcoming. We were told there was a children's menu - chips - but we couldn't work out what else there was for the children to eat, the waiter hardly spoke any English and wasn't very helpful, and so alot of the time we ended up getting takeaway pizza. The breakfast was very good however. On our second day on the beach one of the lifeguards tried to tell us to move away from our reserved space as it was for hotel guests only until his colleague came and told him that he remembered us from the day before. Overall, we felt a bit left out of everything that was goin on at this resort. It was geared very much towards Italians and their families, but it would have made our holiday more enjoyable if the kids club had been a bit more inclusive for our English children. There was one afternoon when practically everyone at the hotel was involved in filming a video in the pool and we felt as if the invitation hadn't been sent to us! We didn't have a clue what was going on! In summary, a nice hotel but we wouldn't return. The location was ok, but you definitely need a car and it felt as if there wasn't enough nearby to stay longer than a few days.
