Borgo di Fiuzzi Resort & SPA
Ranked #8 of 15 Hotels in Praia A Mare
Reviewed 14 July 2013

+ Location, food, beautiful clear sea, cleanliness of the hotel and surrounding area, evening animation, large modern room and bathroom, international staff, perfect coffee, tour the island DINO,

- Many many children, town located about 45 min. walk. Distance from airport 2.5 hours. In addition to all inclusive only 3 sweet alcohol, white and red wine in one pool bar. In other bars for a fee and a beach bar and a water and coffee. It happened that some alcohol was offered two days. Everywhere he uses plastic cups. Lack of seating at the pool bar especially in the evening. Beach towels not supplied. Russian tourists have advantages as reserved beach area and dining room. Train track behind the hotel disadvantages if you have room on the side.

Despite the lack of it was a lovely holiday. I recommend. Do not compare with African and Turkish holiday. It is Italy :)

Room Tip: Beware of the rooms overlooking the railway line!

Spent a few days on a Half-Board basis over a recent weekend. A really beautiful picturesque area, views of the Tyrrhenian Coast and nearby Dino's Island were superb especially during sunset.

The room was pleasant - appearing relatively new and modern with a comfortable bed and good shower. Air Con was great when it worked (ours cut out on our final night and made the final nights sleep impossible due to the unbearable heat).

What primarily lets this place down is the food and to some extent the drink. The food was disappointing, the evening meals were largely bland and were something I dreaded rather than looked forward to as I would expect of a supposed 4 star resort. They redeemed themselves somewhat with a decent continental breakfast....although I think I was just so hungry from my poor meals the evening before!

Beer, Wine, soft drinks and local spirits were advertised as included in the price we paid. Turned out that the spirits part was a lie...great. So had to make do with the beer and soft drinks, which were served in tiny disposable plastic cups (the kind used at children's parties!)...hardly enough to quench your thirst. We stayed with a large group who had travelled over from UK and almost succeeded in drinking the place dry of beer early one evening. Amazing considering the serving size! Resulted in us being restricted to one cup of beer each per half hour....pretty shocking really.

Overall I left Praia a little underwhelmed. The area is beautiful and the weather was fantastic (thank god the hotel couldn't control that), however having paid quite a bit for our stay I just didn't feel like it was money well spent . If for some bizarre reason I had to stay there again I would only book on a Bed & Breakfast basis. The local town looked to have a fair few restaurants etc that would probably give me a better meal in the evenings.

Booked the hotel through Expedia and immediately on check in was given poor service.

Was given no instructions on meal times, all inclusive features or facilities, but the receptionist demanded 25 euro's for pool use and animation team. This was not mentioned by Expedia and the receptionist would not let me check in until it was paid, so I was forced into a corner.

Poor food, pretty much everything was in trays saturated with water. No room information booklet to explain anything about the hotel.

All inclusive drinks were served in water cooler cups which is a poor and stingey touch.

4 star? More like 2 star.

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous but the dining option needs work. Having travelled many places with dining there are many changes to be made. Children should be controlled in the dining room or a separate time or place should be established. Many people were grabbing more food than they were eating and this wastefulness was shameful. With a setting so serene, a great pool, lovely rooms with great beds and showers I have to acknowledge these factors and focus on the strengths and not the disappointments. Thank You best of luck in your second year.

Room Tip: Pay extra for seaside room the sunsets at night are gorgeous.

I just got back from a month long trip from Calabria up to Lago di Como. Along the way we stayed at Borgo di Fiuzzi because we found a deal on the internet, expected to stay 3 nights and stayed 4 because it was so nice. Very new, 2 years old, beautiful beach, sunset every night from the terrace, rooms are expansive, food delicious and the staff was like family. We really lucked out. We got a room for 4 including use of the spa and pool and beach and breakfast for only 100 euro a night. This place seems to be undiscovered yet. We ate at a sweet hotel on the downtown walk with an outdoor seating, the best owner/maitre'd ever. It was just the quiet respite we needed with a bit of pampering
