“Great Holiday - Quality Hotel - Superb Staff”
Reviewed 28 June 2009

Book at the last minute with Thomsons, read the reviews and were suitably impressed when we got there.

The room was fresh clean and tidy and the whole exterior of the hotel had been recently re-decorated. The reception, bar, lounge and restaurant were tastefully decorated and the owner Bruno obviously wants everything kept to a high standard. 3 TVs for those inclined to catch the footy and grand prix, one in the bar and two in the lounge area. Sound kept to minimum.

The pool on par with the contemporary hotels adjacent ,has a pool that leads directly to the beach where there are reserved loungers and umbrellas for each room. It is a bit crowded there at weekends sometimes. The Italiens do things their own way and charge 3 euros p/person to use the loungers by the pool but don't charge on the beach.
Beware the seemingly endless stream of "Looky Looky" men selling their wares on the beach which was a bit wearing at times.

The hotel is located at the quieter end of Lido Di Jeselo which is an advantage. There are plenty of good restaurants within easy walking distance and regular buses if you want to go further afield. As previously reported not a lot of night life and the whole resort could do with a few bars as opposed to restaurants/gelaterieas that serve drinks. Not a major problem but you get the impression they want you to have a meal with your drinks a lot of the time.

Another slight irritation on the eating out aspect was there was quite a queue for the good restaurants between 6.30 and 8.30 if you are prepared to eat later, not a problem.

Decided to to upgrade to half board and were really impressed with the quality and value. If done on a one off basis it was 25 Euro p/person for buffet salad and a 3 course meal. If booked over a few nights it was only 15 Euros. The food was superb and would easily grace the tables at a good restaurant.

Drinks at the bar were not expensive and came out quite well compared to local prices.

Finally the staff were superb and could not do enough for you. Bruno the manager especially. He is up at the crack of dawn and mucks in with all of his staff and he is there at the end grabbing a quick bite to eat in the bar at 11.00. Could not do enough for you. Even took two young girls in his own car to a late opening restaurant on their first night when everything locally was closed. He is also the master at Irish Coffees and all forms of bar keeping having learned his trade in London prior to setting up business.
He owns the Capitol and the Marco Polo Hotels and is cureently setting up a seafood restaurant shortly. So he must be doing something right!

Nothing else to add a wonderful seven days and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing break.

We stayed at the Capitol as we did not wish to stay in hot and busy Venice where we were attending a wedding
The Capitol is a very well kept hotel and the owners were extremely helpful to us - we cannot thank them enough in giving much advise and practical help. They were lovely
I am sure we had the best room in the hotel - 123 - with a massive balcony overlooking the pool and sea beyond
We chose half board and had exeptional food in the evening with reasonable priced house wine. 4 courses which were all excellent, with evry good service from staff
Breakfasts also good with a buffet and also scrambled eggs and bacon
The beach and pool were good, and the bus stop is very close by - 45 minutes to the airport and about 1.2 hours to Venice by bus or bus and boat.
We really did enjoy our stay at the Capitol and recomend it as a very sensible alternative of you want to visit Venice and also enjoy the beach

Arrived at Hotel Capitol and a very good flight and transfer to the hotel. Our Thomson Rep wasn't the best we had had. Her knowledge of the local area definitely needs to be improved on.

Our room was ready for us and was a very good size at the side overlooking the very clean beach. Plenty of storage space and the bathroom was a good size too.

The hotel is at the quieter end of Jeselo but that suited us as we were not disturbed at night by any noise but it meant having to do the same walk every night along the promenade and/or main road to reach any of the good restaurants, which we didn't really mind as the evenings were lovely and warm and it was good to walk off our dinner.

Bruno the owner is lovely (though the same can't be said for his wife). He was very helpful and at lunchtimes always tried to get my daughter to eat different things. He kept complaining that she ate like a bird. Must admit eating at the hotel at lunchtime wasn't cheap and everything was put on a tab and you were presented with the bill when you checked out, which I wasn't too happy about. Also the tables seemed to be reserved for the Italian guests only and though my daughter and I did end up eating there every lunchtime we always had to fight for a table.

My one big complaint was that there were no spare rooms for people departing late in the afternoon. Especially people with young children found this very hard to cope with as the day had been very hot and obviously the youngster had wanted to go for a final swim. Myself and a few other guests ended up "borrowing" towels from the maids' trolleys and then having a shower by the pool and changing in the ladies and mens toilets in the reception area. All in all not very satisfactory. Bruno's wife wasn't at all helpful when asked about getting a room to change, her reply was that we shouldn't have come in August!!!!!!

All in all though the hotel is lovely and well looked after, the majority of the staff were very friendly and it was lovely having our own private beach, though you do have to pay for beds around the pool!!!!

Would definitely recommend to friends though.

Booked to escape the (not so) great British summer and was not disappointed! Hotel directly on beachfront with its own, well maintained, private section of the beach with emplacement comprising sun loungers and beach umbrella allocated to each room. Our 'sideways view' room was beautifully clean a reasonable size with plenty of storage space and balcony had fantastic view of the beach and sea.
In this fairly small hotel, staff were friendly and service was good. The owner even gave us a lift to the bus station to catch the bus to the airport. Majority of guests were German so perhaps understandably, only basic English was spoken; a chance to brush up on my Italian!
The only minor disappointment was the food - had read reviews here and elsewhere that it was great but my assessment would be 'adequate'. Perhaps this was because it was near the end of the season or maybe tastes differ.
Hotel is at one of the extremes of the resort so even in high season it is probably quieter and has less faciliites than the centre.
Fantastic 6 day holiday representing great value for money. We loved Lido di Jesolo and the hotel so much we only managed to drag ourselves away to visit Venice once!

  • Liked — Beachfront location; friendly staff
  • Disliked — Next room's bathroom was next to bed so could be a bit noisy!

We stayed here for 2 nights during a 2 week mini tour of Northern Italy before the birth of our first child. We got just what we were looking for - 2 days of complete R & R before heading to Venice for 3 days of full on sighseeing.

We took a coach from Venice Mestre train station to Lido di Jesolo bus station and Bruno the owner picked us up from here in his car at no additional cost.

The hotel is in a great location, near the end of a very long strip of hotels. It was nicely decorated and well kept, as was our room which was on the top floor on the side. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, it was a really high standard.

Bruno takes great pride in his hotel, he is always on hand to help and advise and is eager to please.

We landed in venice marko polo airport and were rippedoff to the tune of 80 euros for a trip to the resort.{bad start) For a few days we could not understand what was missing in the resort ,the beaches are lovely and clean the sea safe and warm nearby is venice and some beatifull italian countryside. then it occured to us -no entertainment! No music around the pool no music in the pubs no english tv no coronation street no sport no jet skis on the water no paragliding or banana boat no karaoke ! We walked as far as maybe 4 miles still nothing .Then one night we found a bar with maybe fifty people standing on the pavement listening to mixed karaoke, there were swedes ,germans, british and italians all enjoying the old favorites elvis frank senatra etc but it was not to last ,fun appears to be banned here and for the rest of the hol only a bar singer was there and no joining in.However before you think I am a skinhead brit my wife is a headmistress and myself in engineering this resort had one last suprise for us. Like some Stephen King novel it started slowly at first ,when we had arrived there had been a thunderstorm and we hardly saw a mozzie then it began, first one bite then three then six on one arm on on day, then bitten in the room, on the beach in the downstairs resturant in the pub ,pizza parlour they are infested .No one appeared to escape even the locals who filled the farmacies for repellent a nightmare destination never again!

From all accounts this hotel has had a refurb over winter, but the interiors look amazing and we found it to be in a nicer quieter part of jesolo. The hotel is family run and everybody was really friendly, especially the owners so we were really happy to be so close to the beach and actually preferred staying in the hotel most nights, having a cocktail and watching the sunset over the beach & the lighthouse area!
