“Strategic location and excellent value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

A really good place, in the quite countryside, surrounded by nature, but just a fe minutes away from the shops and restaurants of Otranto and the fantastic beaches of Salento. Very clean rooms, not too small, very nice pool and good levels of courtesy by the staff. The restaurant in the masseria is run by a very charismatic chef, And managed by the owner: both put in it a lot of passion for the great quality of Salento's food, fish and wines. Good value for money in the masseria, the restaurant may be slightly overpriced but the quality is excellent and justifies the cost, in particar if compared with the price of restaurants in Otranto. I would suggest surely to a friend and do not exclude another stay in the future.

We have been at Masseria Bandino before and we decided to come back this summer. The rooms have been refurbished and I really like the fact that the owners do take care of the maintenance of the hotel during the winter season. I do not understand the 3-4 bad reviews on this site. I suppose some people like to pay for a 3 stars but expect a 5 stars hotel. I never had a problem of customer service here and the food is fantastic. Actually this season the hotel has a new head chef who has a michelin star, infact lots of people from outside the hotel come to eat here. The food is more than amazing and we decided to eat in the hotel every night. The beaches at Alimini are fantastic and the owners and the guy at reception are very good to suggest what to do and where to go or to organize anything for you. We will be back again for sure. We love it.

We have been here quite a few times now... And will be back. Our stay this time was 3 weeks. We have two you g children aged 2 and 5 and they were well catered for. Staff friendly and happy, kind to our children. The food is amazing. Retired Michelin star chef!!! He has retired from the 'rat race' to take it easier here in the restaurant of the masseria. Breakfast has big selection. We stayed in a room closest to the restaurant. Double bed, sofa bed for 5 year old and cot bed for 2 year old. We are at the beach all day, so use room only for sleeping! Our 2 year old sometimes asked to go to bed during dinner, so we were able to put him to bed totally safe with the baby monitor. Literally 10 metres from door to our table in the courtyard! Next year, we will take a family room as youngest will be in a proper bed. Lovely pool here too, but head to fab local beaches if you can! Relaxing atmosphere. Don't expect bells and whistles! This is rural chic! It's cosy, comfortable, very clean, totally refurbished and relaxing, friendly vibe. Real italy. Home from home. We come every year, and the owners repaint, refurb every winter. They are proud of their establishment.

We stayed at Bandino before and decide to come back again because our first stay was wonderful.
This time was wonderful again, we love the place, Otranto and the sea at Alimini (which is 10 minutes in the car). The breakfast and dinner are amazing and we mostly had dinner in the hotel. The hotel has 3 stars but to me it should have 4 (the service is top).
We travelled with our two young children and the place is perfect for families too. The owners are really good with guests and they catered for our children needs perfectly. We felt at home. We are thinking to come back in the summer of 2011. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a proper holiday.

Sadly we stayed here for only one night/day between booked apartments. This is such a lovely welcoming place. The staff were great, from the reception through to the restaurant. There was a language difficulty with understanding the menu that was overcome with charm and humour and the food was absolutely superb - A la Carte, Antipasta is fantastic (and extensive!). Spacious, comfortable, well equipped and quiet room with terrace. Breakfast among the best we have had in Italy. The pool is very attractive and in lovely surroundings. We really do hope to go back sometime. Good value.

My husband and I spent 4 days at the Masseria Bandino with my sister and family who live in Italy. The Masseria is beautiful, Our room was immaculate, the bathroom was perfectly clean every day and the balcony gave a nice view of the whole complex. The breakfast is superb; the food was freshly made and delicious every morning; you could go back as many times as you wanted, it never ended. We had dinner there only once but should have spent more time just to enjoy the massera and its hospitality; it is a true jem and the staff is the nicest you would hope to find. Unfortunately we live in Denver, Colorado, and there are too many places in the world to see, but if we decide to go back to Salento again (an absolutely must see in Italy) we will for sure stay at the Masseria Bandino again, a true hom away from home filled already with warm memories. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 8 days in June. It is a beautiful hotel and a lovely pool. The staff were really nice and helpful. The food is good and it is substantial yet not overfacing. Our room was on the first floor and it was quite large, very clean and the bathroom was also very clean.There was a nice patio. The hotel is situated about 2 km from Otranto town. It is lovely and peaceful at night, just the sounds of the animals and birds. Similarly at the pool in the mornings but in the afternoons the pool was quite busy and noisy.
Otranto is a lovely town with some good restauants. There are a few beaches but they were very crowded. We went to the beaches at Alumini and these were also crowded even at weekdays, but the Alimini lakes were beautiful. We have b een all over Italy, usually the same weeks in June, and usually we find some secluded or quietish beaches so we were amazed at how busy these beaches were. Overall though we thought it was a great holiday. Would definitely go again.
