Reviewed 2 July 2014

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was very nice, located away from the city so very quiet. The food is wonderful, great menu for dinner in a fairly formal dinning room. Breakfast buffet was also very good. There is a beautiful old olive tree right out front. Fruit trees out back, cherries were already growing.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

We spent a week at this hotel, my wife and I using it as a base for touring the area. The hotel is situated in the countryside outside of Alberobello and the hotel supplies a shuttle to the town for €3 a very reasonable sum.
The hotel has an outdoor pool, open many months of the year with a snack bar in that zone. This is free to use, large and the recliners comfortable. Should you need a towel that will cost you €1 per day, we took our own.If that pol is closed or it is cold then there is an indoor pool. This is advertised as free to use but you have to hire certain items such as a robe, slippers and towel, this costs €15 per day. We did not inspect this one.
Our room was expansive, clean with a large bed and balcony. The bathroom had a shower inside a jacuzzi bath, the jacuzzi did not work during our stay. In addition to the toilet there was also a bidi. The room had a safe and mini bar.
I had read previous reviews complaining about excess noise in the restaurants. This was not our experience. The food was very good each night and breakfast was well laid out with hot and cold food available.
There is no entertainment provided in the evening and therefore little encouragement to enjoy the bar and lounge area. Bearing in mind the location this is a great disappointment.
The staff are all nice and welcoming. Worth a stay but bring your own entertainment.

Our room was clean with good facilities and a comfortable bed. However it was spoilt by the fact that the room looked over a narrow grassed/paved area and faced rooms opposite. We could see in the rooms so had to assume they could see us! It was a little like having a room in a canyon and as a result the light was not good. Fortunately we were hardly ever in there so it didn't matter too much.

This is a busy, lively hotel with coach parties and weddings and as a result the dining room and bar can be noisy. The staff were always helpful and polite but were run off their feet at mealtimes. It didn't affect us very much; the food was good as was the wine and we had few problems. The bar is large and comfy and after dinner there are plenty of quiet nooks and crannies both inside and out in the well maintained gardens for after dinner drinks. The weddings made our stay interesting and as the disco is in the basement, we couldn't hear anything from our room. Breakfast was a bit chaotic with queues for the coffee but we soon found a coffee dispenser without a queue and there were plenty of goodies to eat.
This is a good place to stop if you are touring Puglia and want to see the historical trulli in Alberobello. This small town has plenty of places to eat and we had an enjoyable day here. It's also a good base from which to visit Martina Franca, Ostuni, Castel del Monte and Trani (delightful).

Room Tip: If you are given a room like ours, ask to change.

In our tour of Puglia, we spend 3 nights at this hotel.
It is a large hotel with a nice lobby and gardens around.
The first dinner was in a separate room for the group, the food was OK but slow in serving.
Next morning breakfast also in the small room, but was not satisfactory so we were moved to the big dinning room. Next days were all in the big room, which in spite of being very crowded with all the tours groups, was good.
Also it was a problem the first night, that in some rooms it was not hot water in the showers. Our tour leader talked to the hotel management and all the group was moved to the newer area. The move was done by the hotel personnel and everything went fine meanwhile we were touring the area.
Although the hotel is located in the middle of fields, it was not a problem when you have a coach with your group and takes you to all the places of the tour.

We stayed there two nights. Very well maintained and modern looking. Service was generally good. Breakfasts were very good. No complaints. Would definitely stay there again if in the area. Highly recommended.

Hotel was very large and used by coach parties, was very noisy at meal time in the large dinning room.We where put in the small room which is a passage to the main dinning room, the bar was staffed on most nights by only one member of staff so took a long wait to be served. A choice of menu but the meals were served on cold plats and so the food was only just warm, several people sent their food back for being cold. Swimming pool only opens from the 15 May and the water is cold.Rooms large and clean with spa bathrooms but didn't feel like trying it out for I didn't know how clean the plumbing was. Could not get the air conditioning down to less than 21c even though I had asked the reception to turn it down on the computer. The hotel was immaculate with large pleasant gardens.Tied to hotel it being so far from a town and no where to go after the evening meal except the bar in the hotel

This is a special hotel. The choice was Travelsphere's but hurrah for us that they chose it as the hub for a holiday in Puglia (Apulia to us Brits). We had set menus, with a choice out of three starters, three main and three desserts - there was not a meal I did not thoroughly enjoy. The portions may have veered towards nouvelle cuisine but personally I think that is healthier ... especially for someone like me who feels that they have to eat everything that's put in front of them

And as for the staff! They were a delight. So, so friendly - even after just a week there were goodbye hugs.

Even if not on an organised trip I'd go back. The hotel is a popular wedding location and venue and Italians having a good time is so infectious.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony - the jasmine flavours the air.
