“Nice Hotel, nice staff, nice clean rooms.”
Reviewed 23 September 2010

I will keep this review short and sweet. The hotel is set on the sea front towards the end of Lido Di Jesolo, if you know the area, about 3 kilometers from the lighthouse.
The rooms are spotlessly clean and kept so each day by cleaning staff that are extremely good at their job. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful and if approached in the correct manner, which is to say , do not be aggresive.
Our half board was buffet style and the food was really quite nice, although having said that, do not expect haut cuisine. The bar staff were excellent and the prices of the drinks were very reasonable. The resort I found to be based on one street which was 15 kilometres long and not too close to the hotel. the beach is fine sand and suitable for children and watersports. My holiday overall was most satisfactory and there was, apart from the weather, little to complain about. By the way this might be a good hotel to use to visit Venice.

Have to agree with the previous reviewer, we knew not to expect luxurious rooms but even so was quite dismayed intially when we entered our room after a long journey, can only describe it as drab. We were not in it that much as the weather was good but looking around it we noticed holes in the net curtain and many scuff marks on the walls. Tiniest bathroom. Aside from this the public areas downstairs were quite pleasant, lovely to have breakfast out on the terrace and the evening meal in the dining room was always delicious, however the air con in the dining room could be quite chillyl if you were sat right under it which we were. We walked many miles along the front and most of the hotels seem to be of a similar standard, didnt see any that made us think 'wow, wish we were in there'. The main street is quite pretty, tree lined, not much traffic and very pleasant with lots of shops and bars, to stop and have a coffee is not expensive. We enjoyed our holiday and would certainly visit the resort again.

Stayed at the Cesare Augustus for 2 weeks and have just returned. The first thing I would say is that an Italian 4 star is nowhere near a British 4 star. I've noticed this also with Greece and Spain in the past. However, there are still many 4 star aspects about this hotel.

On arrival I was less than impressed with the room. We were lucky in the aspect that we had a corner room with part seaview, as other rooms I had seen were TINY! The decor was drab and outdated and the room just had an overall poor look. The TV was ancient and had ONE English channel, which was the BBC World. Balcony area was shabby and the railings had peeling paint work. In the bathroom, which was tiny, there was a persistent smell of stale urine, and the fact that we had no hot water on 5 separate occassions!!!! I complained to reception and was told "it's a problem in the area, engineers are looking at it." Aye right, as we say in Scotland. As for the air con, you got suspicious at times it was barely on. Sometimes the room would be perfect temperature and other days you'd wake up in a sweat at night. The management control it, so I'd suggest they occassionally decide to switch it off for a while. On the positive side the beds were comfy and large, very easy to get a good sleep in.

Anyway, most of the negatives were room related. Aside from this, there are several good points. The food is superb and what I'd expect from 4 star. I wouldn't advise going out for a meal in the area as you'd struggle to find places matching the quality of the hotel restaurant. There was great variety every day and you never got bored. Often the food is cooked fresh to order, such as steaks, fish and pasta. The staff are also generally friendly and pleasant. Although it was hilarious how some who had barely acknowledged us over a fortnight suddenly sprang into friendly smiles on the last day in order to obtain a tip. Equally, the Italian guests at the hotel are generally arrogant Northern snobs. If you say 'Ciao' to some of them, they'll look at you like you've just insulted their mother! The Southern Italians are certainly the best from my experiences.
The hotel bar is not overpriced also and you certainly get good measures of spirits for your 3 euros.

The pool area and beach are ok also. If you want to swim though you will have to wait until 5ish when the kiddies get taken away for dinner. The majority of the day you'll have the pool full of children playing; which has to be expected to be fair. The beach has reserved deck chairs for guests, so you'll have no trouble with seats. However, you are expected to pay 3 euros a go for a sun lounger; even those by the pool. This is quite odd, and something I've never seen in the past. Also, if you go for a swim in the sea be very careful with jellyfish. I was stung on the foot while walking into the sea and had a numb pain for 4-5 days. Equally, at night, avoid the pool area if you don't wish to become mosquito food.

The Thomson reps are also very helpful and friendly; David and Suzi. They will aid you in planning trips etc, which you're best to do on your own. Thomson charge more than double the cost of DIY. If you want to get out and about there's generally things going on, but the main strip becomes mundane and samey after 2 nights due to the repetitive throng of shops selling exactly the same products. So you will have to travel to Venice, Verona or Treviso if you want to see interesting things and places.

Overall, the rooms drag the place down, but there are star aspects to this hotel.

We recently returned from the Cesare Augustus hotell. Lido de Jesolo.
On arrival, the hotel staff were very friendly, our room wasnt quite ready but we just had a drink at the pool side and within half an hour we were in ouroom. The rooms were on the small side but very clean and well maintained. And the air con was working well.
which was very welcoming as it was so hot.
. The furniture in the hotel is tastefully done, inside reception area there were leather sofas, for you to relax in, and outside in the bar and pool there were rattan chairs nd sun loungers. be warned you have to get up really early to get sun beds round the pool , as the pool attendant has a tendency to reserve beds for other nationalities, but when i asked him to reserve one for us he said he wasnt allowed to !!!...
The breakfasts were nice made to order, and you can go up as many times as you like, you must try the chefs omelette they are to die for. In the restaurant in the evening the meals were fantastic. Lots of choice, as ime a vedgie, i was a little worried, but needent have been there was everything you could ask for. Again the staff were excellent, maybee not enough of them, as the poor waiters and maitre-d were running around trying to please evryone. Unfortunatly some people do not like keeping to the restaurnt policys, and it clearly states long trousers for men, so why do some people insist on going for there evening meal in cut offs, only to be sent away to change.
There was only two evenings of entertainment one been a group and opera singer,( very good they were to) and on the other night was the Thompson rep David doing a quiz, great fun was had by all on this evenings. he realy gets the crowdgoing with his banta.
I have travelled a lot and never had such a dedocated rep. He was there for breakfast wishing everyone good morning and was there most of the day other than for his lunch. He was always smiling and plesent to all of his guests, taking time to get to no all of his clients. He was also welcoming people in to the restaurnt on the evening. well done David. Thompson you have a Gem in him.
Just outside the hotel withing 5 min walk is the strip, full of shops , bars and hustle and bustle , it was very family orientatied and i never once felt thretened.
We only did one trip through thompsons, and that was Venice its was amasing, yes we did do the gondula ride it cost 100 euros but we did get a guided tour and 45 mins it was worth every penny. You can do it cheeper if you are willing to share. The guide was very good to.
We also went to the water park, not that its my scene but the kids loved it. I think it was 23 euros each to get in. You can catch the little blue train that leaves from the square about 10.00am but we decided to walk it only took about 20 mins.
Just one more thing to say about this holiday is that we all wish we were there now.

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at the hotel for a week from the 23rd July for my birthday. The hotel itself is lovely, the food was amazing for half board and David our Thomson rep was superb.

The location of the hotel is great, right on the beach and the bars and restruants are only a 30 second walk away.

Our stay would be of been superb if not for one big problem, thieves!

On our second evening we returned to our room from a day of sunbathing to find all of our cash had been stolen. Our wallets were inside our suit cases which were locked with padlocks, we opened our suitcases, which looked as though they had not been disturbed, only to find everything gone. It was only luck that we had our camera with us otherwise that would of been gone too. Our room was on the 4th floor and we had the do not disturb sign on all day, so it was a surprise to come back to the room and find our room had been cleaned and money gone hmmmm

We were not the only people to have money stolen as two rooms directly above ours also had money go missing. David the rep was very good at helping us out with visting the police station and so on, the manager gave us a safe free of charge after the incident but the only person that could of got into our room was some one with a key card.

Another funny coiencidence is that upon arrival the reception will ask if you require a safe and if you do choose to have one, they will mark your room number in highlighter pen, thus alerting any one who cared to look to the rooms that do no have a safe, which are not highlighted hmmmm

If this incident had not accured then i would recommend the hotel to anyone, but it appears as though there are staff at the hotel who arent there to make an honest buck.

Just returned from a weeks stay at the Cesare Augustus and missing it already! The location is perfect for venturing around Lido Di Jesolo with bars, restaurants and an abundance of shops right on your doorstep. The hotel is directly on the beach which ideal to step on to when you fancy a change from the swimming pool. The hotel has its own area of sunbeds and deckchairs on the beach. There is an additional cost to use the sunbeds however your better off using the free deckchairs which you can relax on just the same and come with an umbrella too. On both the hotel and the beach, there was no need to get up ridiculously early to secure a sun bed as there were always some free. Sun beds by the pool cost 3 Euros each. The rooms at the hotel, like most typical rooms in Italy are slightly smaller, although these were cleaned every day by the maid and comfort was not compromised by the rooms being more compact. The food at the hotel is outstanding with so much to chose from including full English and fresh fruit and pastries for breakfast along with a huge variety of pasta cooked while you wait, salads and meat, not to mention the mouth watering deserts, for dinner time. The food is perfect for all taste buds and diets and since returning I think I have piled on several pounds after wanting to sample every dish, every night! The staff are very pleasant and helpful in particular out Thomson rep David, who by far has been our best rep yet. He was at the hotel all day, on hand to help with any problems, not that we had any and was consistently friendly and hard working to make sure Thomson customers had an enjoyable time. Overall, a very good hotel in a great location and would definitely consider returning again in the future.

The location is good, on the beach, near shopping and entertainment, with pool and modern facilities. Food was excellent and offering something for everybody - including "full English" breakfast cooked for you as you wait (no rubbery eggs) - and freshly cooked pasta in the evening. Would be excellent if:- 1) The reception staff could offer a smile, and 2) the lady working in the bar on mornings and early afternoon could not only offer a smile but also not be so "officious" - the young man working with her is extremely helpful in comparison. The rest of the staff we found to be excellent, especially in the dining room and at breakfast.
There is a need to review their "back office" systems which are mainly manual and inefficient (possibly why the receptionists are not cheerful due to work load). This affects guests who, like us, for security reasons, do not carry a lot of cash and rely upon cards to make most payments. We always like to sign for our sundry expenses, dinner wines, bar drinks, mid-day snacks, equipment hire, etc. paying at checkout by card. This works fine most of the time - BUT - you cannot "charge" on the day you arrive (we arrived at 10.30 am) and neither can you charge on the day BEFORE the day that you leave. This is not up to standard in comparison with other hotels of a similar quality in which we have stayed.
