4.1/5 Very Good! (282 reviews)
The staff, especially reception and the dining room people, were friendly and helpful. The grounds are fantastic and well kept. The breakfast is probably one of the best we’ve had in Puglia, with lots of good choices, including scrambled eggs, although somewhat cold. The size of the buffet table made up for the eggs, which are unusual for breakfast in Italy anyway.
We enjoyed our stay. Our room was quiet and a good size. The only complaints we had were that, (1) the shower is very small (we’re not big people, but it was an unusually tight cubicle) and the sliding doors made getting in somewhat awkward, (2) the floor in the shower is somewhat slippery, too, and (3) the air conditioner in the room was quite loud and not all that effective. Reception was very quick to respond to our complaint and had the noise looked at, although that wasn’t as successful as one might hope. As for the temperature in the room, we were there during a heat wave and it did not cool comfortably. Reception reset the temperature setting remotely to 17.5... the room should have felt like a fridge at that low setting, but it did not come down effectively during our 3 day stay. Otherwise, we were fine in the common areas.
The hotel has plenty of parking and is easily accessible. We wished it hadn’t been quite as remote and that we could walk to town, but that was not possible, as it’s off the highway and not actually in Manfredonia. It would be a great venue for a gathering or wedding.
