It was a delight to stay at the Hotel Saline, we (my partner and myself) arrived to such a warm welcome. The front receptionist took time to explain about our room and the services which the hotel covers. Our room was facilitated with the expectations we endeavoured, it was cool and clean. The room was cleaned on a daily basis, the cleaning staff was helpful and polite. Our holiday stay at the Hotel Saline is one of the best holidays we have been on and one of the reasons why is down to the helpfulness of the Manager, receptionists, barstaff and restaurant staff. Although our Italian was not up to scratch, the staff was always there to help us and it was so much fun to be taught the basic phrases which helped us as we journeyed to other places surrounding Palinuro. The entertaiment was very good, there was always something going on each night, the DJ, was very up on his music, there were other entertainers who were polite, encouraging guests to partiipate with the thrills of entertainment which was orchestrated so well around and along the beach. There is so much for families who have young childen, activities are arranged for the children to enjoy and join in and have fun, the young lady who entertained the children was like a "Mary Poppins", the children just adored and marvelled around her when she appeared. One of its beauties is the beach, so pure and clear, as you go into the water you feel so refreshed, I would recommend that you wear beach shoes because it is slightly rocky but that's all good because the sea is pure, it is an area for snorkelling too, there is so much acquirium life in the region. The Restaurant food is top class, whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner, there was a delicious range of 'a le carte' Italian crusine served, the food was full of passion, integritiy and seductive flavours which can only be experienced in that region. I am not an Italian but the food we tasted at the hotel oozed with so many flavours of the sea and the pasta was just mouthwatering "mama mia" - a wow factor in our books. The service was of the most highest professionalism, it was a pleasure to meet Tonito (Head Waiter) with his sophistication and professionalism, he engaged his staff to be proficient which resulted with the most excellent service. Although it was more Italian families, it was a joy to be surrounded with such lovely people and I felt very comfortable amongst Italian families. The Bar staff was so refreshng and friendly, my partner befriended the bar staff who always spent time to chat about Football creating a ambience atmosphere full of laughter and fun. As my partner's Italian was so bad, it was a daily banter and it got to the point that the receptionist purchased a phrase book for us because they could not take his bad italian anymore (which in anybodies book is beyond the call of duty). This is a place of fun, joy, relaxation, excellent food and service, friendly, polite, welcoming and most of all its surrounded by beauty. We loved it and will one day return. Now for some italian we have taught ourselves:
E'stato triste lasciare un poito cosi bello con il personale piu calda e maravigliosa. Ci manca a tutti voi, ma il ricordo vive nel nostro cuore, siamo pieni di gioia e felicita - Grazie per averci dato un meraviglioso soggiorno presso l''Hotel Saline.
Just in case you are not up on your Italiian skills, I will translate in English: It was sad to leave such a beatiful place with the most warm and wonderful staff. We miss you all but the memories lives on in our hearts, we are filled with joy and happiness - Thank you for giving us such a wonderful stay at the Hotel Saline and as a bonus, we have met and made many friends.
Whether you are single, a couple or a family, this is the place to give yourself a special treat.
