I went here and I feel the real taste of south Italy. Assuntina (the owner) threat us as a part of the family. The view from the room was astonishing and, even if is not the most comfortable hotel in the world, I felt like I was home. Thanks a lot to all the staff.

Don't stop here... Nothing worth the stay. Nothing offensive but I am sure there are much better hotels in this stunning part of Italy. Basic hotel without a style nor soul... Pick one with a sea view and pool.

Tris an hotel that is strategic for a tour in the south of Salento region. Very well collocate e is a very good place with a good cousine and good Services. On food you can arrive in one of the most important natural place La Grotta della Zinzulusa. Near is Otranto or Castro and Santa Cesaria Terme.

This 3* hotel is a very good and pleasant point for visit all Salento Region in Apulia region. It is located on an high rocky coast and front side rooms have a wonderful sight on sea and coast for kilometers around. The open spaces are very nice with a wonderful garden where to take a good breakfast. They have a very good welcome to guests and staff is always gently and professional. Our room (104) was the bigger at the 1 floor with a wonderful sight over trees and at morning is possible to look at dawn and sun rising. The weak point is bathroom that is comfortable (bathtube and shower) but need a renovation. The fan was very noisy. We did not tried the restaurant because there is too much to visit around ! Having breakfast in the open garden was very pleasant and with very careful cared plants all around. Overall opinion is very positive for a 3* hotel. No pool and need a car to moving around.I recommend it

We really enjoyed this hotel. Our rooms were large and comfortable, we enjoyed the various places to sit quietly both inside and out and the staff went above and beyond in the way of service and. When we asked for blankets, we returned to our room to find the bed turned down with a fluffy duvet. When we told them it was my sister’s birthday, they suggested a special meal in the restaurant. It was special and delicious.
