“Not impressed at all”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

We stayed there for a week. The location is in the middle of nowhere, on empty fields , so without a car you won't be able to do anything, not even to eat or drink. They offered no lunch at all and only 2 nights we've had dinner, after that they said the oven "broke down".
The staff was nice, the cleaning was good as well.
The place itself it's nice , quiet and tidy but full of lizards, so if you can leave with them, that's fine. There is no beach closer than 10km and the only entertaining they offered was a freezing swimming pool. Not a place for young couples.

Room Tip: Higher rooms don't have lizards inside.

What a fantastically friendly hotel set just outside Otranto. The staff were so friendly, the food by the pool and in the restaurant was good. The room was very comfortable, super air con, lovely spacious bathroom and balcony area. A beautiful hotel in the olive groves....would recommend to anyone travelling in this area.

I have visited Puglia a few times and am always looking for new, great places to stay. This one is yet another discovery! Gorgeous gardens, peaceful setting, nice rooms (not overdone, not too big too) all in bright white and airy. The restaurant serves excellent food, although they could change their menue more often: if you stay for one week, you have eaten it all after 3 days. Service is impeccable, very helpful and friendly, as people in Puglia are. I can strongly recommend this place for anyone who seeks a peaceful week in the gorgeous south of Puglia.

Rooms are clean and functional but could be a little more comfortable. Staff very helpful. The restaurant is under different management and is OK but we felt that the menu could have have offered more choices.

Fantastic hotel!
We stayed a week in August and just loved it. The pool is gorgeous, we could
have spent hours there. The only annoyance was around noon when there were too many guests (August is high season in Italy maybe best to go another month) but nothing too bad. In the morning most people were out sightseeing and so we had the pool to ourselves. Same thing in the early afternoon.

We also enjoyed cocktails around the pool in the afternoon. I was pregnant and really enjoyed lying in the jacuzzi part of the pool just watching the lovely gardens and the blue of the water.

Lunch by the pool was simple and good. We didn't have dinner in the hotel because we wanted to try the restaurants in nearby Lecce and Otranto but the smell from the dining area was very inviting.

Breakfast was lovely and varied. If you want eggs and such you need to ask. Otherwise they had all kinds of cakes and croissants all beautifully presented. I loved trying different kinds!

The staff was kind and full of suggestions which is particularly useful in this region of Italy which is extremely beautiful but can be hard to discover for the non-native. In particular some of the best beaches are hard to find if you don't know about them so it's good to have friendly staff to direct you. The water in this part of Italy is amazing by the way, it left me wondering why I ever bothered going to the caribbean, this water is just as nice!!! Amazing color!

The location of the hotel is lovely too, in the middle of olive trees, serene and tranquil. You do need a car for everything though!

Finally the room was just right. We got one on the second floor with a pretty terrace. No special view but just very clean and crisp and relaxing with great air-co and nice bathroom. No complaints at all.

Just one thing. Bring bug spray because the mosquitoes come out when they water the lawn. That's it. I highly reccomend this place if you're looking for rest and relaxation in an out of the way place.

This is a new hotel set in the middle of olive groves. The staff made us feel at home and the food in the restaurant was to die for. Beautiful presentation and every course enough to leave you full and never overfaced. The grounds, pool and layout are well thought out and it was a wonderful relaxing break. Only 1.5 miles from Ottranto and an easy walk. Will be back soon.

  • Liked — Tranquil setting with a great pool, rooms and Restaurant.
  • Disliked — The walk from the car park.
