“It is not grotty at all!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

We spent four nights at the Semiramide Palace Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. When we arrived there was a wedding going on at the hotel and a party of English wedding guests were just leaving to go to a wedding elsewhere, so the receptionist was I think a little frazzled and the welcome was not the best. However, the room and the bed were very comfortable and the pool area was lovely. Because it was just a little too far to walk into town in the evenings (there were no pavements along the main road) we ate in the hotel every night.

The food was excellent and the head waiter was amazingly good at his job and charming, going out of his way to make us feel valued. Only downside was that this hotel obviously runs a lot of events and sometimes, as a guest, it was difficult to get service, particularly in the bar.

We have stayed at the Semiramide Palace Hotel on many occasions, and it is our favorite property in the Puglia region. The rooms are very comfortable, as are the beds, and the channel selection is superb for Italy, with a number of English-speaking channels. The recently renovated pool is fantastic, and even has a pool-side bar. The lobby is a great area to relax with family and friends, or you could walk over to the adjacent bar to enjoy tasty food and cocktails. Breakfast leaves a little to be desired, but the espresso is superb and service overall is great. Highly recommend this property!

Been there one night for business travel, looking for an hotel in the area I can use when needed to come.It's a beautiful Hotel, unlikely the Internet wasnt working well (low signal), and I need it for my job. The breakfast could be improved in quality (I did not like the juices and the croissants). The rest was over my expectations. A good place to stay, I hope they will improve the net and I'll come back.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2011

Room was comfortable. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Excellent hotel. We spent two nights and recommend this facility. Staff was always nice, attentive to our needs. The restaurant was excellent both in service and food quality. The location is nice, calm, close to the caves and safari zoo. Rates are very affordable. The only little glitch was the lack of control over A/C ventilation which was noisy. A place to go.

Room Tip: Just ask for upgrades and they will try to help
