“O.K. hotel, but with a few problems...”
Reviewed 11 August 2010

We spent four days in Vasto at this property. While the rooms were clean, and the food was o.k., sadly our visit was somewhat unpleasant due to one of the owners who manages the front desk. In this position, she is the "embassador" for the property, and she was not welcoming in any way. In fact, she was the oppositie. While everyone can have a bad day, she had four of them. The staff at the hotel was fantastic, and a special thank you goes to Sonia in the restaurant. However, the owner made our stay difficult and unpleasant and therefore I would not recommend this property. If the management is ungreeable, the entire property suffers.

Service was adequate; husband very nice, wife a bit frazzled, professional though sometimes curt. Rooms are large a very nice, with efficient AC. The entire hotel has been upgraded yearly for the past 4 years, so is quite new and very clean. We booked on TripAdvisor and did not realize that the beach was extra, and were a bit surprised (upon seeing the bill) that two umbrellas each with a chair and a beach bed cost 15 euros per day. I'm also a bit disappointed to find that our room rate was more than the full "Pensione completa" (room plus 3 meals) for the period of our stay (which was before high season). The location is very close to the beach (the road is only a problem if you have young children you expect them to be able to go back to their rooms on their own).

Reviewed 24 September 2009

We had not booked but just turned up and got a superior room at once. We were booked in in minutes. Clean comfortable and friendly. A very pleasant stay with no hassle what so ever. Beautiful small pool in private garden behind the hotel. Less than 2mins from the huge beach with chairs and beds. Very enjoyable. Buffet breakfast not the best but it was always fresh.

I would not recommend this hotel. Although the rooms are clean and the breakfast is good the customer service at this hotel is lacking. They do not go out of their way to make you feel comfortable at this hotel. Make sure you understand what you are getting/paying for before you book at this hotel because you'll end up spending more. Beach service was horrible. All we got was a chair (plastic lawn chair) at the beach and most of the time they were uncomfortable and we had no umbrella. To use the pool they wanted us to pay more money. Checkout time is 12 noon (posted on the door) but the owner indicated an 11am checkout.

  • Liked — Breakfast (Staff were nice)
  • Disliked — Customer Service by owners - wasn't accomodating, didn't go out of their way to make you feel comfortable
