First night in Bari
The hotel was nice. The breakfast amazing. The bed was uncomfortable and made my hips hurt. We enjoyed our stay. Coming from the US we were very hungry at dinner time but the restaurant opened at 8pm. We were asleep so we went hungry and missed lunch and dinner our first day.

8/10 Very Good

I stayed for 2 nights and absolutely loved the hotel property, there’s a couple things to be aware of such as the wifi ran out in our room, and if you don’t go between June-August the beach is practically closed which was disappointing.

4/10 Fair

Most of the special features of this property are either under construction or not accessible, but it was not mentioned before or apologized when I was there and inquired. The beach is not accessible as advertised and the restaurant at the “beach” is being renovated, which was very disappointing. The food at the hotel was very fresh and good, but only available at very limited hours.
