Fourth visit & will definitely go back!
Great hotel for a 2-3 night stay at the beginning and end of a Puglia adventure. Hotel has all the amenities you could wish for. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. Fabulous swimming pool. Big comfortable rooms. We walked into Polignano every night and one suggestion for improvement would be that the hotel market the bar & restaurant as a more appealing focal point.

4/10 Fair

wish I'd stayed home
I booked a poolside room based on photos showing a view of the pool. Room did not have view and smelled a little of toilet. Decided not to worry. But then I learned that the advertised wifi did not reach the area, I needed to work so asked reception for help. They knew that the wifi did not reach that area and 'upgraded' me to a room in the main building, with a view over the main road, road noise day and night. Here the wifi exisits, but is insufficient to run facebook, or a videocall. My phone 4G was faster. Each time you enter the room and put the keycard in the slot, the electric switched on for 1 minute, enough time to undress, get into the shower etc. Then the electric goes off. I called reception and they were able to over ride from there and told me problem was solved. This persisted for 48 hours - it is quite unpleasant being plunged into darkness. The self closing door on my room didnt work - luckily i noticed and never left myself / belongings unsafe. Although 4 star with photos of tables on balconies/ patios, hotel does not have room service or in-room coffee making facilities. Toiletries were provided (not conditioner though!). The body lotion was half empty when I arrived. The spa is not accessible to lone travellers, you pay for the 'experience' of getting into that area, but minimum 2 people. Takes approx 30 mins to walk to town, but litter strewn, unsafe at night. 10 euro for tuktuk to town. Staff were mostly lovely. Coffee was good.
