We had our annual holiday here in July. After a very fraught journey from Bari we arrived extremely frazzled on a very hot afternoon. We found Montelauro very hard to find (a combination of satnav an my directions not good!) Maybe a hotel from both approaches to the hotel instead of the one from Otranto would assist. However, our welcome was very warm and friendly and our room excellent. We were on the first floor and were somewhat relieved as we would not have enjoyed the ground floor rooms where people are constantly coming past your door and as the door is the only light coming into the room they have to remain open.
Like previous reviewers, we enjoyed the grounds and the donkey/pony and dogs and cats. Not for everyone though.
The only gripe we had was the food! We were so disappointed on our first night - just a watery stew on offer! We decided to take a trip into Otranto on subsequent nights but did eat two more meals at the hotel which again were extremely disappointing - possibly the food of the regions not to our taste?
We would certainly go back, the staff were particularly helpful and the pool are particularly was a very high standard. We enjoyed our stay very much.
