We booked direct by phoning the hotel only two weeks before departure. They only had a back room but it still had a terrace. The manager Enrico said he would try to give us a better room after a few days. They organised a taxi to pick us up from the airport (always 70 euros) and he welcomed us by saying we would have a sea view on day 3. This all happened as promised and the whole experience was excellent. We toured the resort looking in on several of the other main hotels listed. They were all about 50 Euros per night more and frankly you could not fault the Punta Est. It was friendly, helpful, clean, well managed and comfortable. The pool was never crowded and the views over the bay were fabulous. There were two music evenings that were charming and the weather was perfect. The food varied from excellent to good - 4 courses and wine prices all reasonable. We paid 204 euros a night for two people half board in July. Breakfast was everything except hot foods. All the sliced meats, cheese cereals, fruits etc were there. The resort was brilliant. A crescent beach, crystal clear water, a flower decked promenade, small bars and restaurants all along, very beautiful Italians - all just right for a weeks chill out. Lunch taken on the affordable but swanky beach restaurant was always delicious. Instead of paying 100+ euros and being packed like sardines in a tripping boat to go to the uninhabited archipelago island of Spargi we found a lovely couple who ran the dive boat in the resort. Proteus diving - www.proteusdiving.it - took us in the rib and we snorkelled and swam whilst they took the divers off. It was only 25 eros each and they couldn't have been more friendly. The whole experience of the hotel, the resort and the Italians was a delight. Best of all we were the only English in the hotel and one of few in the resort.
