Dakar Living Hotel
Ranked #25 of 27 Hotels in Vasto
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We had a family of four stay in a two room suite with a large balcony. The rooms were large, comfortable and clean. The room was quiet. We had trouble working out the Aircon, but in fairness to owners we didn't ask about it either. We slept comfortably with windows open on a warm summer night. Large bathroom, could be better lit. Free wifi wasn't great in the room, but worked well in public areas such as foyer and hallway. Pool was great for a swim, but needs a bit of work to bring it back its glory (like the rest of the hotel, really). Walking distance to the beach, but other attractions need a car or other transport. We spent a day at Aqualand with the kids and they loved it (ask hotel for a discount voucher). We also walked around Vasto central townsite and had dinner down at the Marina. This hotel provided a basic but adequate breakfast and staff were very helpful. Lunch and dinner needed to be found elsewhere. Good value budget hotel - keep your expectations realistic.

Staff (Nicolas) anxious to please, very friendly and provided all we asked for. Spa /leisure facilities not open in early May - we suspected we may be the only guests! Wouldn't rush back to hotel or area - location of hotel was between main road and railway line, in a bit of a wasteland.

Madam,

   thanks for the compliments to Nicola, we want to specify the following point:

   the spa was open in May and Nicola also offered you two welcomepass for welness center.

   We regret that you came in May in Vasto and not during July or August, come back in summer and you could visit the great beach, the beautiful clean sea and the area did not appear desolate!

   In the hotel there were other guests, but at 11.30 for breakfast were there only you because time for breakfast is from 7.00 to 10.00.
   
   The main road and rail are positive because they allow customers to easily arrive in the hotel.

   
   Yours sincerely

The hotel was great. There was free Wifi. We arrived early Sunday afternoon and were so hungry. The clerk found us some yogurt and fruit. Then, he sent us to a wonderful restaurant for dinner later that night. The location was very near the beach and we walked the boardwalk for hours, mingling with the local families for a great experience. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We would return on another visit to Italy.

I was visiting family for 5 days and just needed somewhere to sleep really. The rooms were huge and clean, bathroom very nice and had a nice balcony which had nice views of the beach. The only complaint I had was the disco that went onto the early hours of Sunday morning. Itwwas loud and it would have been nice to have been warned.
