“Not a holiday, a lifetime experience!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Best cycling holiday ever. The hotel management and staff did everything to please us. They are all extremely friendly, here you feel loved as a guest. They bring the bananas outside on the road at the start of the cycle tours when needed. We had a drink brought to us in the harbor after our boattrip! They have the cutiest, best looking and most humoristic bar keeper ever. A real competition for Clooney and a younger one :-). We felt like one big italian family. There was a mix of nationalities and we all matched well together, birthday parties almost everynight in the restaurant. Besides cycling there is place for,other things: balsamico culture and tasting, bbq in countryhouse of the manager, degustazione in a wine estate, a memorable boat trip. Cycling after drinking prosecco, wine and grappa was a new experience :-)
One point to be approved: the trips of the cappucino lights were too much into traffic.

We work with passion, expecially whit a a group of 20 beautiful girls Flemish cyclists :-)
For all of us it was a great pleasure, so for cycling guides accompany you to make beautiful Cycling, for Andrea the bartender, serve its wonderful cocktail, for our clients ride together with you. What good times spendt to tasting wine and typical products, as prosecco, grappa (but in truth not only a few glasses :-) ). You made me a gift when you have accepted the invitation to take a trip on my boat and to drink champagne on arrival at the port! I'd love give often hospitality to groups like yours!

Thanks from all the Dory staff!

Also lots of things to do for whole family. We enjoyed both active and beach holiday in the same time. A fantastic group of cyclists from all over the world and the excellent guides of course. Everything is organized very well and works fine.

Room Tip: If you go with family, choose D-place!

This was my first time staying at Hotel Dory with all my group from ISRAEL. I have to say it was agreat vaction and agreat week of cycling. The staff was amazing - great service and always with asmile and made every thing he can to help us during the week.
The bike guides were very profesional and Stefano took care all the week that we will have the best week that it can be - and it was the best we - there was nothing more that we can ask for.
The hotel rooms are very nice and very clean, the food is great and this is the best place for bike vaction.

I was there with my wife and our liltle baby (3M) and while i was cycling evry day they spent agreat time in the hotel and in the area' and evry time we have been in an event during the cycling (B&B at stefabo house, wine test) Stefano took care for bringing them to the event and back to the hotel.

Waiting for the next vaction there.

This was my first time staying at Hotel Dory although my husband has been there several times. I have to say it was a first class experience! The food was beyond belief and always available. The food options catered to all including those with allergies and vegetarians. So many vegetables! The staff were extremely accomodating. If there was anything you needed the staff at Hotel Dory would make it happen. They were lovely. If you are a cyclist you are at the right place. They have daily tours for every level of cycling and those who don't cycle they have other activities and organized tours for you to participate in. They organized transportation for non cyclists to meet with their friends and family members who were cycling and provided lunches and wine tastings in beautiful settings. We stayed in the apartments about a block away from the hotel. It was clean, comfortable and private, it felt like a home away from home. I cannot say enough about the Hotel Dory and will definitely be returning and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in experiencing Italy first class. My husband and I took a weekend away in Florence which was so easy to get to as the train station is walking distance from the hotel. There is lots of shopping in Riccione and I would recommend taking one of the hotels complimentary bikes and riding into Cotolica which is about 10km from the Hotel and a beautiful little town. We also took the local bus to Rimini for a day which was only about a half hour trip. There is so much to do no matter what you are in to. Big thanks to Stefano and his staff for providing a vacation of a life time.

This was our first cycling holiday and Hotel Dory came recommended by a friend. It was brilliantly well organised and the rides were a lot of fun (apart from the hills!). The food was very good and there was no shortage of it.
The hotel itself is well positioned for the beach and the main town for evening strolls and shopping.
Staff were very friendly, there were some break downs in communication at times but they always try their best. It's worth clarifying with them where they are willing to collect you from because the website says you can be collected from Rimini but we were told that it was in fact too far for them to come so we travelled onto Riccione.
I would highly recommend the hotel, we had a fantastic week.

Room Tip: It is worth upgrading to the newly converted rooms.
