While as gourmands we generally found little satisfaction during our six days stay in the city of Saranda, we really did enjoy the meals we had at the downstairs restaurant at the Grand Hotel complex. The service almost immaculate, we took four or five meals there. Grilled fish and fresh fruit; beautifully al-dente pasta!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- One of the few hotels located by the Ionian Sea, where one does not need to cross the street to the beach. As a balcony on the bay of Saranda and opposite the Greek isle of Corfu, "Grand Hotel Saranda" offers the opportunity to enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea, the pool, the luxurious accommodation facilities, the traditional Albanian cuisine and the famous Mediterranean one. "Grand Hotel Saranda" was completely restored in 2007 and is an incomparable opportunity to all those who seek relaxation, entertainment and beauty of nature. Saranda, the pearl of the Southern Albania with 2.500 hours or 280-300 sunny days a year, makes Grand Hotel a miracle not only in the summer but all year long. Like an oasis in the city without winter, Grand Hotel Saranda stands in the heart of natural, historical and archeological miracles of Albania. Butrinti, the Blue Eye, isles of Ksamil, Castle of Lekurs, monasteries of 40 Saints and Mosopotami are maximally 15 minutes away from the hotel. ... more less
